The People of Liberty Fairs, Part 2

January 23rd, 2015

There were some great looks at Day 1 of the Liberty Fairs menswear tradeshow in NYC.

Here are our favorite looks from Day 2.

1. Tony Gyepi-Garbrah

Tony Gyepi-Garbrah, the motorcycle riding menswear blogger behind Gentlemen’s Brim, came by in a broken-in Canadian tuxedo with equally beat-up tan brogues.

2. Ian Anderson

You may remember our friend Ian Anderson from our article “Engineering the Perfect Business Wardrobe“. The engineering student turned student of menswear is now a buyer and curator at

3. Ashley Owens

Everybody loves a pretty lady in classic menswear and few do it as well as Ashley Owens, the creative brains behind Grandpa Style and the force behind new editorial magazine Suited. 

4. Jonathan Evans

The fashion director at East Dane was in the building mixing some classic menswear with a subtle streetwear influence.

5. Avi Raphael

Shout out to a fellow Canadian in the game. Avi of Slavin Raphael, one of Toronto’s premiere retail agencies, puts his own spin on casual tailoring. We’re loving the lines of this fit, with the cutaway jacket, scoop tee, and trendy drop-crotch joggers.

6. Mr. Casual Cool

With the excitement of the day’s events, we didn’t catch this gentleman’s name. If anyone knows him, please shout him out in the comments, because we love everything about his grey and brown look: the tough outerwear, the distressed grey jeans, the reverse layering, the suede ankle boots, the simple necklace… Well played, player.

7. Jonathan Sigmon

Mr. Sigmon is the operations manager over at Alan Flusser Custom. We spent some time with him yesterday at the showroom, during our profile shoot with Mr. Flusser, who is a walking encyclopedia of menswear history and a legend in the tailoring game. Naturally, Jon also knows a thing or two about classic sportswear.

8. Mr. Hat

A true headwear enthusiast, the man behind Hat About Town stopped by wearing, what else, a sharp looking felt Homburg. We were pleasantly surprised at how many old-school felt hats we saw at the show.

9. Matt Deckard

Matt Deckard is a clothing historian, a product development specialist at classic American headwear brand Stetson, and a mean swing dancer, which explains the bi-swing “action back” on his custom made glenplaid suit jacket.

10. Alex Crawford

Our photographer Alex Crawford has been crushing it behind the lens all week, in more ways than one. He’s often better dressed than his subjects, but hasn’t been getting a lot of love on the site. We showed love to Wes’ style evolution, but let’s not forgot the Texas rancher turned city slickin’ Art Director’s smooth style.


Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,
