Modern (Renaissance) Man

 

“Let’s go downtown and watch the modern kids…”

-Arcade Fire’s Rococo from The Suburbs

 

Let’s take a stroll downtown… Let’s talk to the guys who take pride in honing their handcrafted goods. Let’s discuss Bedford & Broome, a brand helming from one of the centers of the world, New York City.

Originally known as Everett, this company has re-branded itself, stripped-off their old profile and brought forth a new, re-defined identity: the Modern Renaissance Man. Armed with a simple Idea: "Every Renaissance man needs to change his attire throughout the day to accomplish his many tasks, and we are here to make your wardrobe choices as multi-faceted as you are" ; they have managed to capture the eclectic essence of two very different streets of New York - Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg and Broome Street in SoHo - and made them come into conversation with each other. The result? Well, that's something that you need to see for yourselves. I suggest you visit their webpage or maybe read their blog, The Vitruvian Man, or just simply, follow them on their Instagram account, @bedfordbroome.

In the meantime, here's a glimpse of what they are capable...just scroll down and watch this collaborative session unfurl; watch as Bedford & Broome and Elliptical Patterns Rococo through the docks that adorn San Juan's Kennedy Ave.
