It’s hot. And, save for severe drunkenness, heat is more damaging to one’s outward appearance and composure than any force known to man. Sure, we’d all like to keep it together like our man on the right. But, like the poor chap on the left, the merciless humidity and sewage sauna that is NYC’s subway system leaves many a good man defeated — literally falling to pieces. We wonder: Is keeping up appearances amid harsh conditions the mark of a real man? We’d like to hear your thoughts on the matter. Also, any creative tips for keeping cool? (Seriously, we’re dyin’ here!) In the meantime, treat yourself to this summer style montage by our favorite photog and fashion historian, Bill Cunningham.
