Street Etiquette at NYFW FW13

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.”

Presenting our next installment of New York Fashion Week dress code, favorite shows and street-style spottings—by Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette, exclusively for Nordstrom and Men’s Shop Daily.

From Joshua: “It was great to see a day full of menswear, reinterpreted from two different perspectives. On one hand, we had Mark McNairy, which is more of a streetwear, menswear-esque brand—then Michael Bastian, who sticks more to the ‘fashion’ side of things. A great balance, if you ask me.”

Inspired by Travis’ Look:
Wool Coats | Lightweight Jackets (worn underneath) | Pants | Baseball Caps | Oxford Shoes
[Travis’ Zanerobe jacket, and pants similar to his Zanerobe pants, are available now.]

Inspired by Joshua’s Look:

Our coverage of New York Fashion Week through the eyes of Travis Gumbs (left) and Joshua Kissi of Street Etiquette continues below. Catch up on previous installments here and here.

From Joshua: “Today’s J. Press York Street collection was a great presentation, adding to what it means to commemorate traditional American prep attire while still pushing the envelope. The prep style happens to be one of our main influences, so it’s great to see it presented in such an array of looks. Public School, on the other hand, took care of the street-casual department, with a lot of dark colors and leather to inspire your cool next fall and winter.”

Inspired by Travis’ Look:
Leather Jackets | Beanies | Scarves | Ties | Oxfords

Inspired by Joshua’s Look:
Trenches & Overcoats | Zip-Up Sweaters | Camo Pants | Sneakers | Bags

Day 2 of New York Fashion Week was a wash on account of snow—but our intrepid NYFW correspondents, Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette, were back at it the following day. Check out their gear, photos, and favorite show below—and in case you missed it over the weekend, catch up on Day 1 of their NYFW Photo Journal.

From Joshua: Moncler’s presentation was by far one of my favorite I’ve seen during this Fashion Week—and maybe ever, to be perfectly honest. It was a true experience to those who attended. We were greeted with glasses of white wine and finger foods. The show’s combination of daunting musical renditions and amazing light fixtures made it one to remember!”

Inspired by Joshua’s Look:
Utility Jackets | Scarves | White Jeans | Wingtip Boots | Bracelets

Introduction to Street Etiquette


After offering you a glimpse on Instagram, the first bona fide batch of dailies from our friends Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette is in—and as one might expect, their vision of New York Fashion Week is as nonchalantly stunning as everything else they do. Follow their Day 1 journey below, from cab rides to runways to impeccable people-watching, and stay tuned for more from Street Etiquette at NYFW.

From Joshua: “The first day of fashion week started with a bang, from street style to the runways. We started early at 9am with a showing of Todd Snyder’s Fall 2013 men’s collection. After our fifth season or so of attending the festivities, we see it’s something that people both dread [due to the hectic schedule] and admire. We’re excited for the remaining days of fashion week!”

Inspired by Joshua’s Look:
Trenches & Overcoats | Shawl-Collar Sweaters | Camo Pants | Monk-Strap Shoes

Inspired by Travis’ Look:
Hats | Insulated Coats | Lightweight Jackets | Hoodies | Pants | Wingtips
