For the past 2 1/2 years, I’ve been seeing photos of these 2 outrageously fashionable guys circulating around my Tumblr feed ( to check/follow my personal blog click: http://jocthephotographer.tumblr.com/ ) . In my mind I’d always scream — I need them in my lifeeeeee! They have ‘double-handedly’ transformed urban fashion as it relates to African American males. Being more keen to the ‘oddities’ of life myself, I digested the photos of these gentleman as refreshing hints of tang , speaking up in a muddled course of t-shirts, baggy jeans, and fitteds.
Everytime I’d see them I’d think, “MAN, next time I head up state I’m gonna try to track these guys down!” To my surprise, thanks to a photographer colleague, I’ve found that these guys ACTUALLY have a blog and aren’t some random New York folks who just so happeend to have great style!
Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs, both of the Bronx,N.Y., are the founders of the blog Street Etiquette. Now my week is a little brighter because I don’t have to wait until someone reblogs one of their photos on Tumblr — I can see fashion at it’s most unique any day of the week! Do yourself a favor guys & gals — check these young fellas out! [PHOTOS COURTESY OF STREET ETIQUETTE BLOG AND GOOGLE]
