Todd Snyder Believes Everyone Deserves a Truly Great Watch

A little further down this page, well into my conversation with Todd Snyder, you’ll read him remark that Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren are among the last of the great American designers. I’m not quite sure that’s true, though, because Snyder himself is a great American designer, and it’s not hard to picture his vital, of-the-moment menswear line helping to birth future generations of great American designers. Snyder—who cut his teeth designing for Lauren and J.Crew before launching his eponymou

Nine Pairs of Sensible Boots to Help You Survive the Icepocalypse

I suppose what seems to be never-ending winters is the trade off for universal healthcare, a life expectancy two years longer than the global average, and cannabis legalization. While others may enjoy their spring showers, ours comes in the form of falling icicles, because #Canada. As I watch Instagram stories of my friends at Coachella or off the coast of some Mediterranean island, I’m pulling my winter boots back out of storage. That is, if I don’t buy a pair from this list of ice-approved sh

All Patched Up: Patchwork Is the Next Big Thing in Menswear

I spent a good chunk of my adolescence living in Paducah, Kentucky. For the uninitiated—which, I feel confident in assuming, includes just about everyone reading this story—Paducah is known for one thing, and one thing only: quilts. There are, based on a quick Google search, at least six quilt-specific stores servicing a population of just 25,000. Twice a year, the city plays host to “QuiltWeek,” a gathering of over 400 vendors and thousands of patchwork enthusiasts from across the globe. And, o

Your Grandpa's Favourite Sweater Vests Are Having a Seriously Stylish Moment

So, we’ve all been dipping into our pops’ wardrobes for a minute now—what with all the dad hats, dad jeans and dad sneakers that are making waves at the moment. But it might be time you start looking for fashion inspiration a little farther up your family tree. Grandpa-approved sweater vests are back in a big way, in forms both classic—such as the solid-hued versions from Lacoste and Pringle of Scotland—and edgy, like the playfully subverted takes by the likes of Raf Simons and Comme Des Garçon

Here's Why Your Next Bag Should Be Nylon

Here’s Why Your Next Bag Should Be Nylon The techy, durable material is in the midst of a major comeback. The ’90s are officially back. But you knew that already, thanks to all the chunky sneakers, distressed jeans and grungy dudes with long-hair-don’t-care locks populating the sidewalks. The next age-old trend raring for a comeback? Nylon bags. Twenty years ago, Prada’s techy nylon backpacks helped propel the stalwart Italian heritage brand into one of the decade’s most forward-thinking fash

Why Lacoste Is Cooler Than Ever Right Now

Why Lacoste Is Cooler Than Ever Right Now The Supreme collaboration is just the tip of the iceberg. When I was in middle school, you were “cool” if you had a little crocodile on your polo shirt. Lacoste was the be-all and end-all of classroom-appropriate swag. That didn’t carry over to high school. Not that Lacoste ever went away—the stalwart French sportswear label has been churning out their signature polos and beyond for well over 80 years at this point, with no signs of slowing down. It j

Three Spring Trends Worth Trying (and the Overrated Ones to Avoid)

All trends aren’t created equal, obviously. For every corduroy suit, there is a fedora waiting to sabotage your game. While the current spring/summer cycle is full of trends we can get behind, there are, as always, some to avoid. Now, don’t take this as a list of do’s and don’ts, even though that’s exactly what it is. Take these as mere suggestions. Maybe you’re one of those people who can make any trend work. What with fashion being cyclical and all, ’90s style is having a moment. Peep the log

Hubert de Givenchy, 1927-2018

The fashion world lost a giant today. Earlier this morning, it was announced that Hubert de Givenchy has died at 91. Perhaps best known of creating Audrey Hepburn’s “little black dress” in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Givenchy was a powerhouse in post-Second World War fashion—defining the new codes of Parisian elegance. Born to an aristocratic family in Beauvais on Feb. 21, 1927, Givenchy founded his namesake label in 1952. His entrance into men’s fashion came soon after, with the launch of his men

Nine Pairs of Dress Shoes Worth Investing In Right Now

No matter how “dank and wavy” that menswear Instagrammer you follow thinks dad sneakers are, no man can survive on chunky-soled New Balances alone. At some point, even if your office has no discernible dress code, you’re going to need something a little more sophisticated. A pair of shoes that commands actual respect—not internet clout. The kind of footwear that won’t look the least bit out of place at your best friend’s wedding, say, or a job interview at an old-school law firm with a very disc
