Embrace Your Inner Slob and Still Look Respectable

Yesterday, the Internet imploded when it saw that Duchess Kate Middleton of Cambridge wore a—wait for it—hoodie outside her grand palatial estate. How gauche, no? You, however, are not royalty, which means you can wear a hoodie—sweats, even!—but that doesn't mean you're allowed to look like some damn slob. Luckily for you (and the princess, if she plans on continuing her laid-back fashion streak), California-based brand John Elliott + Co has released a limited-edition capsule called the Loopwheel Collection, a six-piece assemblage of the brand's signature styles made from an exclusive type of Japanese loopwheel fleece. Elliott sourced the material see more

A Gift a Day: A Runway-Inspired Blanket That'd Look Great in Your Home

Until Billy Reid makes our dreams come true and launches a full-scale home collection (like Ralph Lauren's or Calvin Klein's), we'll have to be satisfied with items like today's gift: a virgin-wool blanket that made its debut on the designer's fall 2014 runway. The Heirloom Ribbon Blanket ($395) shares its pattern with the first look in that collection, a diagonally striped double-breasted topcoat. But the mantle itself also appeared later on in the show, worn almost like a shroud around the arms of a model who was already wearing a fur-lined coat. But honestly, we see this blanket draped over see more

Dallas Is Spending More on Men's Underwear Than the Rest of Us

Much in the same way that it used data to show the weird kinds of food Americans eat at Thanksgiving, The New York Times has analyzed numbers from the Federal Government to determine how people in major metropolitan areas spend their money. And congratulations, Los Angeles: you're spending 242 percent more on clothing storage (yes, clothing storage, not actual clothes) than the rest of our nation. see more

Tom Ford Made a Penis Necklace

Tom Ford may be best known for his refined, sophisticated take on men's tailoring and sportswear, but that's not to say he doesn't have a wicked sense of humor. In fact, the former Gucci designer has long been known for his frank, straightforward approach to sex—and he's never been afraid to incorporate it into his work. Most recently, it's best demonstrated by the release of a naughty accessory that's shaped like a phallus. We're not interpreting here—it's called the Penis Pendant Necklace, and it's offered in small, medium, and large (heh). Oh, Tom, you rascal. see more

The New, Subtler Look of Monogrammed Bags

From top: Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane ($1,990). Gucci ($2,100). Over the years, monogrammed bags and luggage have drifted into a regrettable association with reality stars and their toy-size dogs. Thankfully, Gucci and Saint Laurent are course-correcting this fall, raiding their archives to produce modern interpretations of legacy motifs. Gucci looked to its woven suitcases from the 1930s and applied the same heat-embossed Diamante pattern to calfskin duffels and carry-ons. Hedi Slimane reworked the classic 1961 YSL monogram, turning it into a motif now appearing on eye masks, garment bags, and Dopp kits. Best of all, neither print announces itself see more

Apple Enlists Trained Fashion People to Help Sell You Its New Watch

If you see your favorite sales guy from Barneys hanging around your local Apple store, don't be surprised. The tech giant is reportedly filling its ranks with people who have experience selling clothing, jewelry, and fine leather goods ahead of the launch of the hotly anticipated Apple Watch. 9 to 5 Mac reports that Apple is currently hiring people who come from "a fashion or luxury background" or, put another way, men and women who have the proven ability to get people to spend several thousands of dollars on something they're going to wear. And the approach makes sense, especially see more

A Gift a Day: A Slim Cardholder for the Urban Minimalist

Wallets, like bags, can be self-fulfilling prophecies, in the sense that the more room you allow yourself, the more junk you'll allow to populate that space. So, here's a suggestion: In 2015, scale back. Appreciate the essentials and get rid of the superfluous. Instead of your traditional bulky wallet, opt for a barely there cardholder, like this one from Tod's. It's big enough for your credit card, your I.D., and some cash. Be honest—what more do you really need? see more

A Gift a Day: Handcrafted Frames for Sunny Days

Sunglasses often go forgotten as the days grow shorter and the temps drop lower. Part of Dom Vetro's online-only Private Collection, the bottle-green Capretta is perfect for those few hours of light you'll have until the end of March or for that tropical trip you know you want to take in the meantime. The fact that Dom Vetro is a social enterprise encouraging the continuation of handcrafted frames in the face of mass production is one big, beautiful bonus.

Celebrating 105 Years With America's Gentlemanly Menswear Brand Haspel

It's been just over a century since men's clothier Haspel first arrived on the scene. The line, based in the South and entrenched in the region's rituals, is best known for using breathable, airy seersucker in its classic suiting, and dressing some of the most stylish men of the big screen (Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird and Cary Grant in Charade) as well as in real life (presidents John F. Kennedy and Calvin Coolidge wore Haspels). Just last year the brand brought designers Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos (of Shipley & Halmos) to update the brand's spirit. Starting see more

This Is a $1,500 Winter Coat You Have to Apply to Own

The difference between getting, say, a $6,700 beaver overcoat from Brunello Cucinelli and the $1,500 Moosejaw Royale is that any guy with money can just order the Brunello online. If you want the Moosejaw, well, you have to offer positive proof that you're badass. see more
