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

On Earlobe Reductions and Other Really Odd Plastic-Surgery Trends

When it comes to the old nip and tuck, we've come a long way from the basic face-lift or even plumping the face with fillers. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, plastic surgery is moving in some surprising—and downright odd—directions. Take, for example, the trend of earlobe reduction, which is exactly what it sounds like. This is part of a bigger trend the AAFPRS foresees, wherein smaller surgeries—which, in addition to earlobe reductions, include mole removal, upper-lip lifts, and filling in hollowed spaces of the face—create a subtle yet sizable difference in one's appearance.

A Gift a Day: A Rugged USA-Made Timepiece

There's something about a man checking the time on his wristwatch that's just more sophisticated than him pulling out his phone every time he needs a status update. This watch, made in collaboration with Haspel and Brooklyn Watch Co. for the former's 105th anniversary, is both urbane and masculine, thanks to the clean face design and textured-leather straps. The watch's features—which include 17 jewel mechanical movement, a 45-millimeter stainless-steel case, 40 hours of reserve power, and an engraved backing—prove that its sleek facade hides some powerful technology within. see more

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

Ignore Winter. Look at These Swim Trunks Instead.

Brrr! Getting chilly out there, eh? Pay it no mind, though. Amuse your bundled-up self with these swim trunks that launched today (yes, today, as in December 1 . . . go figure) from those beach bums over at Orlebar Brown. The real story behind these swim shorts is that their dreamy tropical prints were lifted from photographer Gray Malin, who's known for his bird's-eye-view shots of sunny (in both senses of the word) landscapes. The limited-edition release is set to coincide with the art world's pilgramage to the Magic City for Art Basel Miami (hence the oceanside/poolside images). As see more
