Gant's design team trolled the company's vast archives, unearthed six worthy shirts, and updated them for a special 60th-anniversary collection, out this month at select Barneys New York stores. In one case, cashmere was woven into flannel; in another, a traditional oxford-cloth was cut into a pullover.

Vacations that Require You to Break a Sweat

A week at the beach sure seems ideal—until boredom sets in with that third margarita.

Having my own record makes me less precious about my ideas. Q: Your new song "Out of the see more
