Style Profiles. As part of our twice-a-year Men’s Shop Catalog, we profiled 3 real men of style and substance. Here, self-made lensman Joshua Woods.
Joshua Woods is no stranger to readers of Men’s Shop Daily; he gave us an inside view from the European Men’s Fashion Weeks and popped up in our Street Etiquette at NYFW coverage. The 27-year-old has been getting a lot of attention for his work, and it’s obvious why. Woods possesses a unique point of view that’s evident in his photography—and, we’d say, his personal style (you don’t see nearly enough men sporting a bucket hat these days). Keep reading to learn more about Woods’ signature headwear, his style icons, and how basketball influenced his career path.
See the shows and street style of Paris Fashion Week through the masterful photographic lens of Joshua Woods. Keep reading for the full gallery—including an up-close look at collections by Paul Smith, Rick Owens, and AMI Alexandre Mattiussi—and if you missed them, catch up on Josh’s photo journals from London and Milan.
See the shows and street style of Milan Fashion Week through the masterful photographic lens of Joshua Woods. Keep reading for the full gallery—including an up-close look at collections from Belstaff and DSquared2—see Josh’s London journal here, and watch for his dispatch from Paris coming soon.
You’ve seen his work here on Men’s Shop Daily in the past. Get ready to see a lot more—and to have your socks literally knocked off in the process (blizzard warnings be damned).
New York photographer Joshua Woods possesses one of the keenest eyes for street style we’ve ever seen. His ability to transform the hectic rush of fashion shows into quietly jaw-dropping works of art is uncanny. And he’s a genuinely nice guy—nice enough, in fact, to send us some of his stellar work directly from the European Men’s Fashion Weeks that are currently in motion.
Watch for his first dispatch—from London, and featuring Topman, Burberry and Paul Smith—later today, to be followed in the coming weeks by Milan and Paris. In the meantime, get a taste of his work on his website and Instagram (@joshuawoods), and stay tuned to Men’s Shop Daily for much more.
Presenting the sights of New York Fashion Week as seen through the eyes of Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette. Today, they soak up the visuals that occur off the runway, on the streets outside the shows.
From Joshua: “Style and fashion are not just encapsulated for one week in February or one week in September—it happens every day. And it’s not just downtown. It’s not just uptown. It’s not just Brooklyn. It’s all over the place. Getting inspiration from people on the street is one of the biggest things for us.” [Excerpted from our recent Q&A.]
Joshua’s soundtrack for the day. Check out his playlist from last Fashion Week here.

As Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette (along with ace photographer Joshua Woods) wrap up their visually stunning New York Fashion Week photo journal for the Nordstrom Men’s Shop, the guys were kind enough to send over the video retrospective above. You might recognize some of the week’s more memorable imagery—the symphony of lights at Moncler, Josh’s vintage military coat, the girl in the lion skirt—but seeing it all in motion, with a buzzing NYC as the backdrop, feels even more like you’re right there living it.
Once you’re done vicariously visiting NYFW above, keep your earphones in for the added bonus below: an excerpt from Joshua Kissi’s iPod during the hectic week of hitting shows, shooting photos, and living to tell the tale.
From Joshua: “Music plays a grand part in my life. Depending on my mood, it may be something upbeat or slow, lyrics or instrumental. Either way, music starts and ends my days, and was an integral part of keeping up with the fashion week madness.”
Stay tuned to Men’s Shop Daily as we continue to recap the goings-on of New York Fashion Week through the eyes of our friends Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette.
From Joshua: “Even with rain throughout the day, we were excited to be out and about during NYFW. The highlight of the day goes to our good friends William Okpo, produced by Lizzy and Darlene Okpo, two amazing friends of ours with an amazing womenswear clothing line.”
