Scenes from the Armory Show
The Armory Show started up this week, with hundreds of galleries piling into two piers on Manhattan’s western edge. It’s the closest you’ll find to a pop-up MoMA—and more importantly, it has nearly every variety of gentlemanly style you could want, from British Museum trads and disheveled artists to the Harajuku avant-garde. (Also, every conceivable hairstyle.) We stopped by yesterday with camera in hand to document the splendor. Check it out below.
Why yes, that is a denim suit.
You can always spot the artists.
Pocket squares were well represented.
Some classic style…
…and some not-so-classic style.
This is a statue, not a person—although it fooled us, too. Man with Camera, by Duane Hanson, in polychromed bronze. Nice shirt though.
A jovial Frenchman wearing one of the nicer suits we saw all day.
A great flipped lapel.
An imprisoned captoe. We can’t begin to guess what this means.
Reservoir Dogs meets gallery assistant.
An art tie from Gary Hume.
Ambitious hair, classic jacket.
A man in a quilted vest is welcome everywhere.
