Mouthfeel Is a Sexy Food Magazine With a Hard-core Edge

Seemingly out of nowhere, the foodie-zine-from-a-gay-punk-perspective Mouthfeel made waves when it launched earlier this month. With a mission statement to "explore the complexities of food and the characters involved" and aimed at "people with unrestrained appetites for food, men, music and humor," the magazine disrupted the mainstream mix of overhead photographs of perfectly curated tablescapes and jaunty recipes. As a newcomer to the world of print magazines, founder and editor Mac Malikowski seems an unlikely person to cause such a disruption, but, during a phone call from Los Angeles (where he is currently researching stories for his next issue, see more

A Guide to San Francisco, Courtesy of Menswear Boutique Unionmade

For Todd Barket and Carl Chiara, founders of San Francisco-based menswear boutique Unionmade, their brand filter boils down to a simple formula: quality first, then timelessness. "So much of fashion now is fast and cheap," says Barket. "We believe the best things in our wardrobes get better with age. If you're going to spend more on a garment, we want you to wear it years from now and still realize how nice it is. We may not be of-the-moment, but we believe in being authentic and effortless." From Japanese Kapital scarves to Levi's Vintage to Golden Bear varsity jackets, it's see more

Artistic Genius Turns Kanye West's "Bound2" Into a Children's Book

This Instagram Account Shows What NYC Subway Riders Are Reading

Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. Rachael: "My boyfriend recommended this book to me and even though it was published in 1857, it's definitely relatable to a modern person. The language is still understandable and beautiful and eloquent. It's a really nice read. But I hope I'm not like Madame Bovary. She's never happy with the best things around her." @rachaelleenelson #thankful #thanksgiving #newyork #nyc #bookreview #subwaybookreview #book #gustaveflaubert #madamebovary #realist #novel #love #reading #subway #bookloversunite #author #fall #readinglist #list #bookclub #readingisawesome #bookworm #instagood #igers #style #follow #instabook #iphoneonly #vsco A photo posted by Subway Book Review (@subwaybookreview) on Nov see more
