Video: 3.1 Phillip Lim's Sunny 2012 Spring/Summer Collection

Focusing on youthful cuts and lightweight materials, 3.1 Phillip Lim's spring/summer 2012 collection includes airy shorts and paper-thin ponchos and windbreakers that are perfect for strolling along beaches or skateboarding on pavement. Recalling the Southern California that Lim grew up in in the eighties and early nineties, these clothes are open and comfortably loose with just a touch of grunge. Some heavier items, like knit sweaters and denim pants, add a rounded mix to these otherwise summertime ensembles. The tight-fitting monochromatic hats that 3.1 introduces adds to the line's sunny vibe that capitalizes on gentler colors, whites, and acid-washed fabrics. see more

Sartorially Inclined: "Put Down the Elitist Grooming Products"

Self-confessed menswear nerd Lawrence Schlossman is the opinionated blogger behind Sartorially Inclined and How to Talk to Girls at Parties, works at an independent fashion public-relations firm, and doesn't give a damn what you think. Menswear bloggers (such as myself) have a natural aversion to wearing or using any product favored by the general population. I mean, how the hell can we be so fucking cool if we're sporting the same stuff as the dude in the office that everyone lies to about the next happy-hour location? I often catch myself slipping into this mentality, and it bums me out. see more

With his sleek new stainless-steel-encased analog travel clock, you can now make a fashion statement while checking the time on the go. Its classic design and cheeky pastel-colored numbers will put a smile on your face, no matter what time of day it is. A black-leather Paul Smith-signature-embossed pouch keeps the watch see more

Workwear With a Bit of Cheek: Hixsept's Fall/Winter 2011 Lookbook

Sure, it features sturdy lace-up boots, boxy jackets, raw denim, and a natural color palette suggesting earthy, outdoor adventures. But Hixsept's fall/winter 2011 collection isn't above a little cheek. Liberty-style and checkered patterns add color, and the oversize sweaters, with their almost pajama-like cuts, offer a touch of humor. Hixsept also borrows elements from storied French brands—Armor Lux contributed stripes from its Breton shirts, and Paraboot's kicked in a pair of durable, handcrafted shoes. It's a charming line, fine for foraging on the mountainside or just braving the city sidewalks.—By Tania Jachens Also on Swagger 360: Behind the see more

Yes List: Peter Gatien and the Limelight, The Rise and Fall of a Club King

In 1983, an enigmatic, eye-patch-wearing Canadian named Peter Gatien transformed the New York club scene by opening Limelight in a former church. He went on to run three more clubs, becoming the city's most notorious nightlife impresario, until the law-and-order Giuliani administration put him out of business, eventually leading to his deportation in 2003. The documentary Limelight offers a sympathetic history (his daughter was a producer) of Gatien's reign without skimping on colorful anecdotes from associates like club-land killer Michael Alig (the subject of the film Party Monster) and Ecstasy kingpin "Lord" Michael Caruso. Limelight comes to theaters September see more
