The Modern Sweatshirt

Fitted, handsomely heathered, and far less bulky than the sweats you remember from high school, these refined cotton pullovers are designed to be worn everywhere except the gym. Fact: That little triangle under a sweatshirt's collar is a detail born out of function, not fashion: Developed in the twenties for football players, the V-notch enabled the neckline to expand so shoulder pads could be worn underneath.

The Gin Diaries: In Praise of Being Your Own Boss

Brad Estabrooke, founder of the Breuckelen Distilling Company, was a typical Wall Street banker. That is, until he got laid off in December 2008 and decided he'd rather make gin than find another office job. The 31-year-old began working on his Brooklyn distillery in March 2009, and he expects it to open for business this May. Over the next few months he'll chart his progress—the good and the bad—in an exclusive diary on Details.com. This week, he shares what it's like to be a local business owner.

Teen Fashion Blogger Robert I. Brown on Why He Doesn't Follow Trends

You and Robert Brown probably have some mutual interests. He worships the Rat Pack, loves his desert boots, and counts F. Scott Fitzgerald among his favorite authors. One thing you probably don't have in common with the style blogger: He's 16, a high-school student from New Orleans East—and his site, Robert I. Brown Style, is a fresh, sophisticated, and charming voice in the echo-chamber-y fashion blogosphere. In his final post for Details.com, he shares some parting thoughts on trends, teenagers, and inspiration. I don't love anything about fashion. If I may borrow a statement from the great Ralph Lauren, I'm see more

You can't quite tell if he's from London, the Lower East Side, or Greenwich, Connecticut, which is exactly how he likes it. This spring, designer Junya Watanabe built an entire collection around this guy and called it Snob. We call the look preppy with edge.
