I was wondering for a minute if Abraham & Straus was still around somewhere. Then it occurred to me that maybe we are talking about Anderson & Shepherd (?) Maybe I should start sitting on the street peeling carrots . . .

What is he doing with the carrots? Grating them? Why?


Anonymous argos said ... (6:22 PM) : 

He looks fantastic. Best dressed carrot guy ever.

This guy is a legend, and a master salesman. He was featured in a recent article in Vanity Fair.

Blogger idonothingallday said ... (9:46 PM) :

Blogger Robyn said ... (10:25 PM) : 

CARROT MAN! He is so awesome. I feel bad for not having bought a peeler fro him though.

The Vanity Fair article mentions one of his suits as being by Chester Barrie. His shirts are by Turnbull & Asser.

Huh. Intriguing.

I am just a bit jalous not beeing in NYC. You find such poeple only there.

Stylish, and showing good cuff!

Erhm... What's a carrot man?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:00 AM) : 

This guy looks great -- very classy. What does it say about society when the sidewalk peddler is far better dressed than your average lawyer or banker?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Did you mean Anderson & Shepherd? If so I have to say, he really knows how to dress...


Blogger Meredith said ... (1:43 PM) : 

He is so great!

He sells vegetable peelers, guys. More than just carrots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

Ok. Who is this guy? how come he possesses bespoke clothing? What is his story? etc etc..


Blogger Karen Uh-Oh said ... (3:40 PM) : 

A good peeler is hard to find.
Where does he usually hawk his wares?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:10 PM) : 

For us small towners (Chicagoans, haha) who don't live in a magical land where carrot peelers make enuf to drop 5 large on full bespoke...can someone please tell this guy's story? Please?!?!?!

Btw, even aside from the suiting, this guy's shirts and ties are impeccable. Wow. Makes a big firm corporate lawyer who wears Hong Kong bespoke/MTM want to drop it all and go peel carrots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 PM) : 

Despite being impeccably put together, this man is the best salesman on earth. I once saw him draw a crowd on a street corner that not only blocked all foot traffic, but that spilled into the street with cabs eking around the outside. He sounds exactly like Patrick Stewart in Dune. And his little peeler jobs really are that awesome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 PM) : 

Read the article in Vanity Fair. He married money but has worked very hard in his lifetime.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Yes. Sells excellent vegetable peelers for $5 (I do have one), but is also married to a wealthy woman on the Upper East Side. All very weird. He dresses the same to dine at upscale restaurants.


Blogger Faith said ... (2:41 AM) : 

I think I love this guy! :D


Blogger business voodoo said ... (3:46 AM) :

The guys been peddling stuff on the streets of for 25+ years. He also sells (sold?) 4 childrens books for $5.00, like hotcakes.


Blogger Pay Your Fare! said ... (12:42 PM) : 

That's Mr. Ades (pronounced AD-ease) and there is an article about him at He is certainly downtown's most beloved street hawker and he sells something that is actually useful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 AM) : 

The most natural salesman I have ever witnessed


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 PM) :

Blogger POLO BELGIUM said ... (6:15 PM) : 

The carrot man , Joseph Ades died a few days ago...
