From The “Hogan” To The “Hitler,” Decode How Trustworthy He Is By Beard Style

For the fashionably apathetic dude, expression through clothing is hardly ever intentional. This is often why guys turn to the one area of manliness they can sculpt and curate with care (or just out of sheer boredom): Facial hair. To gauge what type of a person he is through his chin pubes, there’s this handy chart, “The Trustworthiness of Beards,” which indicates whether he’s an A-OK man (the Philosopher Beard, the Abe Lincoln Chin Strap) or a bad seed (the Soul Patch, the Hitler ‘stache). At the safer end of the spectrum, beards are classified by tags like “Very Trustworthy” and “Neutral.” As you go along, certain whisker styles pass from “Unsavory” to “Threatening,” to the worst—”Dangerous.”

Ladies, study with care. After the jump, a larger portion of the chart. [via Urban Outfitters Blog] Keep reading »

Net-A-Porter’s “Jean Team” Will Make Your Denim Dreams Come True

In an apparent bid to make the Canadian Tuxedo cool, Net-A-Porter will open a denim e-boutique this Wednesday. Given Net-A-Porter’s history of awesomeness, we’re pretty excited about the whole thing. The site’s denim selection is already pretty legit, with everything from straight-up jeans to jackets to bags included, which makes us a little too excited. Yes, with names like J Brand and Victoria Beckham denim, most of it will be out of our price range, but it makes research for a jean splurge really, really easy. Plus, a Jean Team is on hand to help you find the right fit, and it never hurts to have someone tell you whether or not your ass is going to look good in them jeans. [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Amber Rose Makes A Scene For The Gazillionth Time

I was all prepared to write: This is no way to go to the theater. That is until I realized “Guys and Dolls” is a lounge in Beverly Hills. But still, wearing a bathing suit on the street is totally inappropriate, even if you have on stockings. [4/26/10] Keep reading »

Meet Fashion’s Newest Reality TV Star — Lily Allen

Move over Whitney Port, there’s a new fashion diva in town. Former music star Lily Allen is putting away her lyrics and microphone for a career in the fashion world, but she’s not content to just work in fashion. She wants to show off the drama of her life to the world — reality TV-style. As part of her new plan to open a boutique called Lucy In Disguise, Lily’s signed on with Channel 4 to star in a reality TV show displaying the ups and downs of her new career path. Beginning early next year, fans will have the opportunity to watch as Lily learns just what it takes to work in fashion and all about the hard work required to open a store. Lily and her sister are working together on the boutique, and if the Kardashian girls have taught us anything, it’s that sibling drama is a whole other situation. Sure, LC and Heidi provide endless entertainment, but Khloe and Kourtney have that nagging behavior that only comes from years and years of sisterly togetherness. Will you watch?

Desperate For A Birkin? Now’s The Time To Buy!

An Hermès Birkin bag is the ultimate in purse luxury. While crazy Lady Gaga decided to “accentuate” her own white bag with a Sharpie, there are very few people in the world who actually score this astronomically expensive purse for two reasons: the price tag and the prohibitive wait list. So, along with the recession that’s taken hold of our world in the past few years, comes just a tiny bit of exciting news. It seems the legendary wait list for a Birkin bag is officially no more! So, in case you’ve been holding on to a spare $6,500, then now is the time to get a little shopping-crazy. Luxury retailer Portero’s is already boasting their wait list-free inventory of Birkin bags, including a violet suede number that I’m currently having major fashion pangs over.

Move Over Mink: It’s All About Rat Fur

Pardon me while I throw up in my mouth a little, but Vanity Fair‘s VF Blog reports that nutria, 20-pound river-dwelling rats that tend to thrive in Louisiana, are making a splash (!) when it comes to fur-trimmed menswear items this fall. Cute! And designers are already queuing up to put a super sexy spin on the trade:

“I love the masculinity of it. It’s sort of the bad-ass fur,’ [Alabama-based designer Billy] Reid explains. Gilles Mendel sourced his fall 2010 collection fur in Canada. ‘Tougher than mink,’ he says, adding that nutria’s combination of coarseness and shine lends it ‘a androgynous feeling’ and ‘a certain modernity.”

Well, gee guys, when ya put it that way … As if fur isn’t gross enough, did anyone really need to go there? You have to feel bad for this Billy Reid model, above. Hell, we even feel kinda bad for the rat. [Gawker via VF] Keep reading »
