You already don’t have a job, don’t pay the bills, and don’t take me out — which makes you a metaphorical baby. So when you went out and bought this asinine baby body tee from Fred Flare and wore your baby-ness on your sleeve, I reached my friggin’ limit. Don’t Captain my Tenille, I know what’s up. You are never going to grow up. Never. Leave my house keys on the table. Smell you and your pet ferret later. We’re breaking up!

, I have a predilection for skater dudes. And so when I saw this video starring pro skateboarder Kilian Martin skating in a variety of hot fashions from Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and John Varvatos, I felt it was my duty to share. [Definitive Touch

When I first met my boyfriend he was wearing pristine white Adidas sneakers. I punched him in the shoulder and said, “Hey, what’s up with your shoes?” He asked me what I meant. “I’ve never seen shoes that clean,” I said. “I don’t trust people with shoes that clean.” He pointed at a tiny smear of dirt near the toe and said, “They’re not that clean.” I don’t really remember how or why we ended up getting together after this, but I can tell you that those suspiciously clean sneakers were a real stumbling block (to be fair, my propensity for punching strangers probably didn’t help). You know what would have been a preferable footwear choice? Boots — the dirtier the better. Here are my top five reasons why … Keep reading »
When I first met my boyfriend, he favored pristine white Adidas Superstar sneakers, baggy jeans, and Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts. He kinda dressed like a douchebag, to be honest, but he didn’t act like one so I decided to give him a chance. These days he wears beat-up boots, slim-fitting jeans and plaid button-up shirts. I think he looks much better now, but I can’t help wondering how much influence I had over this sartorial change …

After I saw Inception for the first time, I left the theater with three existential questions racing through my head:
- What if reality as we know it is actually a dream world?
- Did Leonardo DiCaprio’s character ever really wake up?
- Why don’t more men wear vests?
The third one has weighed most heavily on my mind in recent weeks … Keep reading »

Ever look at old black and white photographs of your grandparents and think, Man, she was so glam; Gramps was so handsome. (Well, hopefully your grandparents were/are attractive people. We’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.) But there’s something especially captivating about the men in those pictures that makes you realize that guys just don’t look like that anymore. It’s difficult to you put your finger on what it is exactly. The hair, yes; the clothes, yes. But it’s also something about how everything works together to give the faces an all-together different aesthetic that you don’t see so often. Swoon.
At the very least, reports the New York Times, old-fashioned fashions are making a comeback with men. Did you do a double take with the photo above? Because surprisingly, those models are decked out Alexander McQueen, Ralph Lauren, and Dolce & Gabbanna. According to the Times, a “new Victorian” aesthetic is experiencing a revival, which we should have seen coming with all those mustachioed hipsters with their lofts decked out with taxidermy. Now men’s designers are incorporating what would have seemed like costumey details of tweed, Civil War-like coats, vests, and bowties, into their designs to bring back the old into the mainstream.
Sadly, we haven’t seen any guys who have gone all out with the nouveau Victorian look. But the man who did could be irresistibly sexy. Don’t believe us? Check out the Times’s spread featuring the dandy styles—trust us, it’s like period porn. [New York Times] Keep reading »
