The week's top stories in fashion news.

It's hard to steal the style spotlight when you're hanging on the arm of one of the best dressed presidents in history, but Obama had a major menswear moment this week after Tweeting a pic of himself with Justin Timberlake looking downright dapper at a soul music concert at the White House. His apt caption: "Suits and Ties. H/T." (Complex)

Maybe you're feeling sore this Father's Day because your childhood didn't include sunny afternoons in the backyard playing catch with your pop. Well buck up, lil' buddy: Coach is taking the great American pastime to the next level with a collection of color-blocked gloves, bats, and wallets manufactured in the USA. (WWD)

Azzedine Alaïa is lending his talents to menswear for the first time with costumes for a Los Angeles production of "Figaro." The designer shared this shrewd take on the experience with the New York Times: "I've never done men's clothes before, and opera costumes are difficult." (NYTimes)

You thought your well-groomed beard was just promoting your general manliness, but Kentucky-based ad agency A&W wants to use your beard to promote actual products. For $5 a day, willing bearded men can sport one of the company's "beardboards." It was only a matter of time--given that tattoos have already become a corporate branding tool. (Business Insider)
