Bloggers and editors got a head start to Men’s Fashion Week at the Blind Barber this week when British online store ASOS hosted a cocktail party to welcome their menswear design manager, James Lawrence, to the Big Apple. Scout Sixteen’s Justin Livingston, Paper’s Mickey Boardman, NYLON’s J. Errico, Vogue’s Nick Remsen, and GQ’s Liza Corsillo were in attendance to pick up a (beyond!) generous amount of ASOS swag and meet Lawrence. We grabbed him to get his take on New York style and find out what’s always on his NYC to do list. 

What differences do you note between New York and London men’s style?
I find New York men are more understated, dress a little sharper and are more tailored than they are in London.

Where do guys need a little help here?
Be more adventurous. Londoners are great at being creative and being more experimental with different styles.
Will you be attending any shows during Men’s Week? 
Unfortunately not, as I’m back in the UK, but I will be looking forward to seeing the Robert Geller and Tim Coppens shows.
What’s your must thing to do when you’re in NYC?
Dinner in Marlow & Sons. I discovered it on a shopping trip a couple of years ago and fell in love with the place.
What’s your favorite item available at ASOS?
The tan suede trucker jacket.
