    whats hot in your neck of the woods

    I'm speaking from East Central Park South neighborhood, very different from the rest of the Manhattan hipster set style which I'm sure will follow by fall:

    PLAYED OUT FROM 2007:
    -Boat Shoes/Topsiders - Hamptons are OVER (except Southampton prime)
    -Skinny jeans - never in
    -Skinny ties
    -Geek chic glasses - never in
    -Floral board shorts
    -Fitted 2 button jackets
    -Babies in place of man purses in the subway on the way to work (doesn't have to be yours, makes you look responsible, starts conversations)
    -Belts
    -Convertibles
    -Aviator Shades
    -Anything in current GQ


    HOT IN 2008:
    -Orthodox Jewish look - black, trimmed, fitted but more loose this year, conservative
    -Clear (usually neon) visors worn ONLY with your business suit for lunch outside
    -Baggy pants/sweats with penny loafers
    -Wolf/animal t-shirts
    -Wristwatches ONLY while having sex, preferably black or white opaque face (no gold/platinum/silver, etc)
    -Bedazzled board shorts
    -Your boyfriend's mom as a date/arm candy (dinner, movies, beach, etc) without your boyfriend
    -Batman & Robin type Motorcycles (either on beach roads or ONLY east of Madison Ave. when in city)
    -Pleats

    Good for FE (fuel economy). You have better pedal control.
