The Best-Dressed Men of the Week: A Very Special Airport Edition

Alexander Skarsgård When: July 29 Where: LAX in Los Angeles. Why: We're not sure what was up this week but A. everyone was hitting the airport and B. everyone was looking great while doing so. Skarsgård wore the ultimate business casual outfit: dark jeans, light button-up, and white sneakers (Adidas' popular Stan Smith, natch) proving that some things just work no matter how many times you've seen them before. The hunter green bag is a nice, low-key touch too as are the sunglasses. Well played. Brad Pitt When: July 26 Where: LAX in Los Angeles. Why: Brad kept in see more

No, Zayn Malik Doesn't Look Cool (But There's Still Time)

If you're a member of a boyband, it's no small thing to break away from the group that made you famous and strike out on your own. Few do it successfully (does Justin Timberlake, in this arena, have any living competition?), and many who make the attempt fade into the background instead of becoming true icons of either music or style. Which is why it's been so interesting to watch Zayn Malik's highly polished first steps into solitary stardom over the past few months. His rise from One Direction's dark-haired man of mystery to solo artist has been highly documented see more

Our Legacy Makes a Case for Chunky Sneakers

We've tailored and tapered our trousers to accommodate the slim, minimal sneakers that have dominated the past few years in menswear. Classic Vans and Common Projects served us well paired with clean, no break pants, but silhouettes are changing. It's seems we've reached the reactionary point in this trend cycle, and larger volumes are, well, blowing up. Not that you need to retire the Stan Smith's (in fact, you should probably buy another pair), but it's time to broaden your horizons of proportion. see more

How to Wear a Linen Shirt Without Looking Like a Mob Boss

Comfort is king #LinenSeason A photo posted by Mister French (@misterfrench) on May 13, 2015 at 7:48am PDT When the heat wave strikes, drastic style decisions are necessary. But it's hard to think of a linen shirt without conjuring images of a drug cartel boss sitting poolside, tapping the ash off his Cuban, staring menacingly through his aviators. see more

Please Stop Wearing Golf Shirts if You're Not Actually Golfing

It's been hard not to notice that a lot of guys are wearing golf shirts in locations that are far, far removed from golf courses this summer. And that needs to end. Golf shirts, for the uninitiated, are nearly identical to polo shirts. In a lot of cases, they even bear a logo where a crest would be, and some have pockets designed to carry a scorecard and pencil. They're usually made from a cotton-poly blend or some other material that wicks moisture, which means they often have a slight sheen. This allows their wearers to stay relatively cool and see more

Trump's Biggest Fashion Fail Has Nothing to Do With His Hair

If you want to run for president—and you definitely should if you're a Republican, because there's not enough of those in the race right now—your sartorial responsibilities are few, but they're important. With the exception of a few casual and/or athletic looks—see: Bill Clinton jogging—the men in the race usually wear a dark suit, a white or blue shirt, and a subdued tie. It's within the confines of that uniform that a candidate (or president) has the opportunity to make a statement of taste. That statement should almost always be: "I am a sane person who understands the fundamentals of see more

Calvin Klein's Latest Campaign Is All About Sexting

Everyone knows sex sells. Calvin Klein is about to find out if sexting does, too. On Wednesday, Calvin Klein Jeans launched its fall 2015 campaign, which is inspired by the way the digital landscape has changed dating and sex. The images, shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti, feature photos of young people hooking up. The ads carry the tagline "raw texts, real stories," so they also include the sometimes racy text exchanges that brought the two (or in one case three) people together. A sampling: So what . . . he's just cool with you doing what you want? We see more

Alexander Wang Said to Be Departing Balenciaga

It was lovely while it lasted, wasn't it? Balenciaga's current creative director, Alexander Wang, will be leaving the French brand after showing his spring/summer 2016 womenswear collection in September, reports WWD. Rumors of the separation started earlier this month when Wang's contract with Kering, the conglomerate that owns Balenciaga (among other high-end fashion labels), came up for renewal. Wang was announced as creative director in November 2012, taking over for designer Nicolas Ghesquière, who is now at competing label Louis Vuitton. Wang, who also maintains his own eponymous label based in New York, added a relaxed, streetwear-inspired sensibility to see more

Adidas Releases an All-Black Stan Smith Primeknit

For all the noise Adidas has made with its high-profile sneaker releases this summer, one of the ones we're most excited about is a relatively simple all-black shoe. The company's recently released black-on-black Stan Smith Primeknit might not inspire a ton of Internet headlines or get resold on eBay for thousands of dollars, but it's still a solidly attractive and covetable shoe. While Adidas has put other, more colorful variants of this shoe on the market this year, this model's subtlety gives it a quiet appeal. You can get your own pair of the limited-edition shoe through the Swiss retailer see more

Finally, High-Performance Running Gear With Underground Edge

What's a man to do when he doesn't want to look like every other runner on the track or trail? That's the problem designer Siki Im and Isaora creative director Ricky Hendry tried to solve with their new running collaboration, RVN. The all-black four-piece capsule is designed for the "independent, underground guy who likes good design" but whose style doesn't fit with what's currently on the activewear market, Im told Details. Im, who's been friends with Hendry for over a decade, lamented that today's workout clothes lack "a certain coolness. A lot of brands do activewear now, but to see more
