10 Minutes with Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal is sitting in a room at the Standard High Line in NYC. The tennis star is here to talk about the new NikeCourt collection, which debuts this week. To celebrate the line, Nike will stage a re-imagining of its iconic Spike Jonze-directed "Guerrilla Tennis" commercial, in which the classic rivalry between Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras was famously played out on a busy Manhattan street. The need for a narrative has conferred on Nadal and Roger Federer the 21st-century version of that Agassi-Sampras rivalry. At the Standard, I show up with Polaroid camera and ask him what he 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

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

Christian Bale Has Become the Dude From The Big Lebowski

Some guys bring their A game when they head to the airport—others, not so much. Christian Bale seems to be part of the latter category from the look of his recent appearance at LAX, which is equal parts hobo, hippie burnout, and The Big Lebowski. Seems that Bale takes a more DGAF attitude when he flies the friendly skies, which is fine and his prerogative, after all. Still, the Jesus locks + wraparound shades + full bushy beard + flip-flops is a lot of look. The Welsh actor is not only taking style cues from the infamous Dude, it see more

Watch 31 Iconic Male Models Unite for Our September Cover Shoot

If you haven't seen the cover of our September issue, you should definitely check it out. As you'd expect, gathering 31 male models from the far corners of the world and getting them in the same room was no easy task. Dressing them, psh, don't even get us started.

Here, check out the behind-the-scenes antics. It's a lot of work, but we do it all for you. see more

Adidas Originals' Stan Smiths Just Got a Mid-Top Makeover

The "sneaker of fall" may not have quite the same ring to it as the "sneaker of summer." But Adidas Originals' latest offering should find a place in your wardrobe regardless. The iconic sneaker's new mid-top style—featuring premium leather and perforated 3-Stripes—has dropped online and in stores today, High Snobiety reports. If OG fairway green isn't your hue of choice, there's also a black leather colorway with snakeskin heel tab. However the most statement-making (and probably debate-sparking) kicks are two TPU snakeskin-pattern styles in white and tan. They don't communicate the same unassuming minimalism associated with the iconic low-top, see more

From De Niro to Hamm: A-Listers on Armani for His 40th Anniversary

Long before anyone barked "Who are you wearing?" at awards-show attendees, Giorgio Armani revolutionized the relationship between entertainment and fashion, both as a costume designer and as a pioneer of red-carpet style. In 1975, he launched his first menswear collection from his home city of Milan, and five years later he created the looks for Richard Gere in American Gigolo, an auspicious introduction to American audiences, who had never seen anything like his neutral color palette, relaxed silhouettes, and innovative mix of linens and silks. On the occasion of the brand's 40th anniversary, we asked some well-dressed men who know see more

Watch 100 Years of Men's Swimsuits Pass Before Your Eyes in 3 Minutes

Some things are not made to be bought vintage, and men's swimwear from 1915 is probably one of them—unless you're after something that takes four months to dry and requires pre-wrapping in Saran to prevent nasty chafing burn. 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
