Today is, apparently, Tweed Day.
Now, I take a pretty hard-line stance against bullshit holidays, but today I am revising my stance to include the glorious celebration of a fabric that we rely on so dearly during the fall and winter months but won’t see much of for the next six or so. Like most of these holidays, the founding is dubious at best—but ultimately, it feels like a good enough reason to give the rugged wools a proper farewell until we meet again.
Carrying fewer things in your pocket just got a little easier with this kickstarter project. The Wally is a slim American made wallet that attaches to your iphone (or case) with ease and without residue. It even has a red pull tab (which I love) that help quickly retrieve your contents. And although I wouldn’t replace my wallet just yet, I like the idea of using Wally when I go for a run or holding business cards.
I’m passionate about fashion. I think it says something about yourself and, whether you care about clothes or not, what you wear reflects some kind of attitude towards style.
Marc Jacobs will take over as the new creative director of Diet Coke.
The 30th anniversary in Europe is dubbed “Sparkling Together For 30 Years.” Jacobs says the packaging will be “whimsical and feminine.”
Here are five simple rules to help you make the most of the special day, whether it involves a romantic rendezvous or grabbing drinks with friends.
So, Boxing Day isn’t celebrated in the US of A, and rightfully so since it’s a British tradition. But, I thought I would go ahead and put together my very own variation of the day for stateside shoppers. Shop from the comfort of your own couch.
Early last week I was trolling through my Twitter feed when I came across a tweet from one of my friends regarding waiting for his suit to arrive from Trunk Club. The company name is actually what caught my eye to stop and expand the tweet. After checking out @TrunkClub and then heading over to their website, I was still curious. I signed up to have a stylist contact me and the next day, Tara emailed me, we set up a consultation and really the rest is history.
Trunk Club was started to solve a simple problem – shopping for clothes in stores or online just doesn’t work for most guys. It’s overwhelming, inconvenient, and takes way too much time. With Trunk Club, guys discover awesome clothes that are perfect for them without ever having to go shopping. We combine top brands, expert service, and unparalleled convenience to deliver a highly personalized experience that helps guys look their best and saves them time.
Your first contact with your stylist is so she/he can learn more about your overall style and what you would be interested in receiving in your first trunk. After the initial conversation, your stylist will pick out some killer clothes for you and have them shipped out to you. Once you try those clothes on, you keep the ones you love and send back the items you don’t. Even better, they cover the cost of shipping both ways.
My first Trunk included:
Jack Spade | $425.00
We’re more than half way through Summer 2012 but the goods keep on flowing in. Here are three laptop case options from Jack Spade for the season. Choose from the 18oz canvas, the waxwear file case, and the coated canvas Sierra briefcase. All three will proper fit a 13-inch Macbook and, most important, work with any wardrobe.
