Greats Looks: Your Men's Style Inspo for the Week of 7/5

Every week, the Greats team gets dozens of mentions, shoutouts, and emoji-filled DM's consisting of you - our fashion-killa community - styling our shoes with some seriously great looks. Since summer weather is also the perfect sneaker weather, we thought we'd turn some of that spotlight on you - our seriously-stylish community - and the outfits you posted that continuously inspire us.


Of the dozens of amazing photos we received recently, our Brooklyn team thought these five were the greatest. Without further ado, here's this week's Greats Looks: 


Editor's Choice: Alexander Kenton (@alexanderkenton) in the Canarsee


Simple colors, bold texture details, and some chill dockside vibes make this fit our pick of the week. The cherry on top: rugged, strapped-up sandals.

Wanna mix patterns? Keep the rest simple and the don't try too hard. Not everyone can be Ivan Wang, but his laid-back summer style is worthy of your follow.

Another year, another tired critique of "denim-on-denim." No, it's not all Canadian tuxedoes and flag bandanas - pairing jeans with a contrast tonal overshirt (plus some color-matched shoes) is downtown style at its best.

So fresh, so clean. Washed jeans add just the right amount of wear and tear to this otherwise pristine fit. The final touch: own your monochrome by capping it off with black luxury high-tops.

When the heat goes up, "keep it light" isn't just a suggestion - it's a lifestyle. On a hot New York day, stunning shades, summer-ready shorts, and the most breathable Rosen ever look as good as they feel.
