NEW YORK,  July 14, 2017, 3 p.m. - Redding News Review this week took a look at the boys of the summer who are not just sagging and dragging their pants.

We shot these over the last few weeks in the world's fashion capital.

This young man by the name of Kayyymar on Insta was sporting a shirt for a new fashion label entitled Richwierdo. The fascinating thing about this outfit - aside from the fact Michael Jackson's face is portrayed as a skull to avoid a copyright issue -  is that the boy is sporting pink.


We captured this young man on a back street while running in SoHo. Loved his baggy look with a tote bag and designer muscle shirt.

We snapped this photo of Andre Ganjdree, or Ganjdree on Insta, at my July 4th art party. Admiring his subtle tattoos going up each arm, earrings and his relaxed open shirt.

We caught up with this Atlanta-based Bri'Geid model by the name of Montez Davis near the Halsey stop in Brooklyn. He sported a turtle neck on a cool evening.

We caught this passerby at 1st Avenue train station waiting on the train. We admired his overalls. This is something you don't see very often in the city - especially on black people. We love how the shirt and the shoes match.

We caught up with this young man named Blake and his friend at Union Square. Blake's friend is in what he described as a skirt and baggy black shirt. Blake said his all leather outfit was inspired by the heat.

Come back next week to see who we feature next!
