Choosy Beggars

— Fri, 2nd January 2009 —

For the second installment of our brand new “Choosy Beggars” segment — which features New Yorkers achieving the perfect balance of personal style and financial savvy — we give you Steven, who we cornered on the second floor of Strand Bookstore on 12th Street and Broadway. 

The proprietor of elmo restaurant in Chelsea, Steven cuts a dapper yet seemingly effortless figure in a muted plaid overcoat and military-inspired canvas vest, contrasted nicely by his rich blue denim and light brown brogues. And while his favorite store is Gucci, Steven says he “scours” Loehmann’s and Century 21 for deals. “I have them put s**t aside for me.”
