NY Times fashion columnist bemoans all the shirtless men in New York, including Orlando Bloom.
There, on Bastille Day, was a shirtless guy checking out the windows at Bergdorf Goodman; there, on Lafayette Street one Tuesday morning, ambled a shirtless shopper hauling Urban Outfitter bags; there, on the R train, was a rider wearing nothing but jeans and sandals; there, on Astor Place, a cluster of topless men flaunting their abs and pecs.
Most of the guys in the slideshow are a)biking or skateboarding, b) apparently homeless or c)skinny famewhores a la Constant and Bloom.
It's about the same as CA.
But please tell me men are not wearing flip-flops to the opera.
I recently came across a photo of the Flatiron intersection in New York taken about 100 years ago. There must be several hundred people in the photo. It was taken during on a summer day and everyone in it was dressed to the nines. What a contrast from today. A photo taken at the same spot would show an unsightly horde slopping around in t shirts, shorts, and flip flops.
