20 Fall Style Staples To Buy Now (Before Fall Actually Arrives)

This post was originally published on this site Look 1: The Anything-But Mr. Rogers Cardigan Miuccia Prada is never not one-upping herself. Collection after collection, season after season after season, the Italian designer is able to look at the menswear landscape, set a course for uncharted territory, and deliver new clothes and accessories that make the last six months of trends feel like they happened eons ago. Her stellar Fall 2017 collection traded the outdoorsy, tech-y themes of spring for a more simple outlook on how men should get dressed (if you want to thank someone for the return of corduroy right now, it’s her). Of course, when it’s Prada simple never means simple. To wit, this cardigan is handmade in Italy from Scottish virgin wool and knit in a seemingly haphazard colorful geometric pattern that’s, naturally, planned out to the last centimeter. $2,480, Mr Porter Buy Now

These Schools Banned Trump Gear—Unless They Didn’t

This post was originally published on this site Over the past year, numerous outlets have reported on students who wore Donald Trump-branded clothes and hats to school and were asked to remove it—or just sent home. But a closer look shows the story to be more complicated—a mess of politics, publicity, and schoolkid emotions. What happens when a Make America Great Again hat hits homeroom? WARNING: Some viewers will find this video disturbing,” a disclaimer above the clip reads. Press play and you’re on a school bus in Chesterfield, Missouri with Parkway West Middle School student Gavin Cortina. A female student is screaming, “You want to build a f**k-freaking wall!?” Cortina, wearing his bright red Make America Great Again hat, yells back, “What’s wrong with building a wall to keep illegal immigrants out of our country?” Then he was “violently assaulted by the young indoctrinated leftist students,” one report reads. … Read more

Ben Affleck Needs to Buy Better Graphic T-Shirts

This post was originally published on this site Splash News The Oscar winner can’t stop wearing mediocre tees. There are plenty of men who rock a T-shirt and jeans just as well as they do a piece of fine tailoring—Justin Theroux, Ryan Gosling, Donald Glover to name a few. Sadly, Ben Affleck is not one of them. The Oscar-winning actor regularly brings his A-game when it comes to the red carpet, but consistently bricks his off-duty fits. The casual-style culprit is a simple one: his taste in the most basic, nondescript, and generally groan-worthy graphic tees. The guy is about one step away from leaving the house in a “But Coffee First” T-shirt. And despite all of his movie-star access to great clothes, this summer Affleck has been seen out in LA and New York wearing a host of graphic tees that suggest nothing so much as a general sigh … Read more

Common Projects Finally Made an Ugly Sneaker

This post was originally published on this site And it’s the best looking ugly sneaker you’ll see this season. Common Projects’ most impressive achievement is that the shoe company has managed to create magic in a shoebox not once, but twice since it first launched in 2004. First came the brand’s now ubiquitous Achilles sneaker—which, by the way, is still our favorite white sneaker on the market. CP followed those up in 2015 with its insanely popular (and oft knocked-off) suede crepe-soled Chelsea boots. All of which is to say that, over the past decade-plus, Common Projects has set a new standard for minimalism in footwear—which is exactly why we never expected them to get in on what we’re calling the “ugly sneaker” trend. And yet, for Fall-Winter 2017, that’s exactly what CP has done, introducing their “Track Runner” take on the oversized, chunky running sneaker. If you haven’t noticed … Read more
