A Guide to NYFW: Men’s & Amazon Fashion

The inaugural New York Fashion Week Mens (#NYFWM) is finally upon us, and today’s post is an all inclusive guide on what to pack, where to eat, and the hottest spots to grab that Instaworthy cup-of-joe.  I’ve teamed up with Amazon Fashion as a social corespondent for the week where I will be posting live from the runways, events, after parties, and so forth.  They’ve curated a hub for NYFWM where you can shop your favorite pieces as well as highlighted items for the week.  It’s basically your one-stop-shop where you can find anything you need from the perfect linen suit, to a portable iPhone battery charger.  Make sure to check it out all the selects here!

As the primary sponsor for the event, they are granting me access to bring you along as if you were here beside me. Gear up as I bring you guys along for all the BTS fun, so make sure you’re staying updated through all of my social channels, and staying connected with all of the relevant handles and hashtags for the week: @amazonfashion #NYFWM #amazonfashion.

Now Gents, pack your bags, we’re headed to N Y C!


1. Leather Canvas Duffle Tote Perfect size for carrying all of your essentials- Love the color too.

2. Mango Blazer Unstructured blazers are perfect for that casual chic look- and, you can’t beat the price! Under $60

3. Linen Suit Beat the humidity in a versatile linen suit. Day 1: Full suit; Day 2: Pants, tee, sneaks;  Day 3: Blazer, light denim, monks
