A Young Man's Guide to Building a Professional Wardrobe

There was a time not all that long ago when going into an office universally meant putting on a coat and tie. But in 2015, showing up to your morning staff meeting in a sweatshirt and a pair of distressed jeans is so widely accepted that corporate dress codes often become the object of Internet scorn. The rise of creative industries (and the hyper casual way their employees tend to dress) hasn't completely erased the need for a traditionally buttoned-up style in some offices. If anything, the less common practice of suiting up to go to work has given rise see more

Testing Out Ralph Lauren's Smartshirt, the POLOTECH

Think wearable technology is relegated to your wrist? Think again. Ralph Lauren—which has dressed the American Olympic team and oversees an entire athletic-minded line with Polo Sport—has always had its eye on fitness. The brand's biggest play to date may just be in the release of the first-ever tech-enabled "smartshirt," known as the POLOTECH Shirt. An electrical box plugs in directly to the garment and gathers information from silver threads that are woven through into its fabric. All of this delivers your workout vitals to a proprietary app in real time. It's like the future, but now. The tee monitors see more

Public School and Tumi Teamed Up on One Hell of a Backpack

Obsessives will remember that a few models in Public School's fall 2015 show were wearing ultra-cool backpacks as they came down the runway. Those backpacks, made in collaboration with the luggage geniuses at Tumi, will make their way onto the backs of anxious shoppers today. But they're far from your basic back-to-school affairs. The $495 bags feature two main compartments, a place for your laptop, two exterior zippered pockets, and storage for the tech essentials a guy has to carry around in 2015. The New York fashion label and the New Jersey-based brand made five other pieces together, including a see more

This Ain't No Disco: How to Take a Subtle Approach to '70s Style

The seventies were a high point in sartorial daring, so the fashion world references that era often—like, all the time, and with the subtlety of a laugh track. But at recent shows by Marc Jacobs, Maison Margiela, Gucci, and J.W. Anderson, themes from the Me Decade were interpreted with some actual nuance (leisure suits be damned). see more

More Than Just a Pretty Face: Cartier's Newest Watch Is Built to Perform

The crown is set with sapphire and is more angular than the standard circular knob. The watches in Cartier's latest collection, Clé de Cartier, add a silhouette to the Parisian luxury house's iconic stable. The timepieces have more than just a pretty face, though: Under the hood, there's an updated movement to make them more accurate. And the shape of the cases, inspired by the flow of a circle, enhances ergonomics. Still, aesthetics are never an afterthought. Eighteen-karat-rose-gold accents take this wristwear well beyond standard stainless steel. $9,650; see more

Shorts Liners Are No Replacement for Underwear: A Rant

There's a growing movement afoot that threatens the very integrity of our manhood, and it's fomented by the guys behind Birddogs—a shorts company that's exhorting you, men of the world, to burn your boxers and let your freak flag fly. Birddogs sells a line of shorts (one design, eight colors) that promises to deliver the free-balling fancy of your dreams, by virtue of a stretch liner that keeps your parts in place and is snug enough to prevent any X-rated slips and an ultrafine silver threading that inhibits bacteria growth and untoward odors. Its website is actually very funny (kudos see more

First Look at Uniqlo and Lemaire's Elegant New Collaboration

It's a good thing Christophe Lemaire left Hermes. If he hadn't given up his position as the hyper-luxurious French brand's artistic director of women's wear, we might not be looking at the men's clothes from his collaboration with Uniqlo right now. Lemaire and the Japanese retailer announced that they'd be working together earlier this summer, but full images of the wares they produced only surfaced Tuesday. We now know that the clothes will be available on Uniqlo's website and some of its stores (including the New York stores on Fifth Avenue and 34th Street, and in the forthcoming store on see more

Teens Are Bargain-Hunting Like Their Parents Now

Those ever-unpredictable teenagers are doing the unthinkable. They're listening to their parents. Specifically, they're following mom and dad's advice to never, ever buy something at full retail price, reports the Associated Press. This is sending retailers and marketers scrambling during their second-biggest shopping season of the year after the winter holidays. "I buy on sale because it's stupid to buy a pair of shorts for $60," said the smartest 15-year-old in the history of humanity to the AP. We can only assume her parents were standing beside her, beaming with pride. As tech-savvy teens flex their muscles as consumers, see more
