Jonah Weiner Kanye West + Bon Iver The Pairing: West, an indie advocate, flew Iver to his Hawaii studio, where the bearded Wisconsin troubadour laid down vocals and smoked weed with rapper (and fellow guest) Rick Ross.

Brennan Woods of the Pursuit Aesthetic on How to Make a Suit Your Own

Dressing for the job you want doesn't have to mean looking just like your boss. Though office culture should influence what you wear in the workplace, you shouldn't be overly concerned with conforming. Here are some of my favorite ways to suit up but still look (and feel) like myself. ADD A POCKET SQUARE: One of the easiest ways to distinguish yourself is by wearing a crisp linen pocket square.

Brennan Woods of the Pursuit Aesthetic Shares His Holiday Wish List

As a menswear blogger, I always have an unconscious and unresolved need for more—more brogues, more selvage, more chambray, more, more, more. One way I fight this urge is to splurge every now and again (or ask others to shell out on my behalf) on those items that I know will last, if not a lifetime, then at least quite a while.
