How to Stand Out: Look Generic
Looking generic is the only way to stand out since everyone seems to be wearing fluorescent pink sneakers with a turquoise sweater and an orange scarf. Seems that the understated preps really make a statement and we picked a few guys out from the Sartorialist (after the jump) that caught our eye……

A few button up shirts, seen here from Oak NYC
J. Crew Chino’s (a steal $64.50) looking already worn in, the cuff at the bottom adds a nice touch too.
