We’re all for getting decked out every once in a while, but in the summer heat we like to go by the tried and true motto, “less is more“. This trendy dude appears to be on the same page as us in his Cheap Monday t-shirt (this shirt is cool but check out their denim–you won’t be disappointed!), denim cut-off shorts, and high top sneakers, all topped off with Ray-Ban Round Metal sunglasses. His look is effortless, clean, and just makes us want to lounge around that lovely dock with him all day…or until he gives up where he got his hands on those vintage cut-offs, but don’t tell him that.

J. Crew Men’s Store Opens in SoHo

Location, location, location.
J. Crew will open its third men??™s-only store today at 484 Broadway in Manhattan, sandwiched between the new Topshop/Topman and the company??™s Madewell women??™s concept.
The 3,406-square-foot men??™s store is in a 19th-century building in SoHo and features a curated and edited assortment of J. Crew standards, limited edition product and vintage pieces. It also houses the company??™s first Suit Shop space dedicated to tailored clothing.
???As we started to develop our men??™s business from a design, edited and curated point of view, we felt we couldn??™t effectively articulate the assortment in our normal J. Crew store,??? said Millard ???Mickey??? Drexler, chief executive officer. ???We saw an opportunity in the marketplace for a store that is dedicated to men only, where a man would see it as his world and he didn??™t have to share it with women??™s or Crewcuts [the company??™s children??™s wear concept].???
As a result, the company removed men??™s from the 2,600 square feet that it occupied on the lower level of the 13,000-square-foot J. Crew store on Prince Street, a few blocks north, to give men??™s its own home. The decision also allowed the retailer to expand its women??™s collection and Crewcuts selection on Prince Street, Drexler said.
