Donald Glover Designed a Pair of New Balance Sneakers

Like most sneaker companies these days, New Balance is no stranger to collaboration. But in recent years, it's refined a specific, charming collaborative spirit to help supercharge its offering. Over the last five years, the Boston-based brand has called upon brands (like Aimé Leon Dore, JJJJound, Todd Snyder, and Casablanca) and celebrities (like Jaden Smith, Jack Harlow, and Salehe Bembury) to help give their shoes a fresh spin. And to help debut their newest footwear offering, the RC30, they’ve enlisted the help of none other than Donald Glover.In terms of style, the RC30 is not too far off from the brand's XC-72 and 327 sneakers, and cleverly reimagines the sleek performance style of vintage running shoes. The silhouette even borrows from the New Balance Trackstar, adding a subtle but ...

Roger Federer’s Rolex Is the Ultimate Watch World Flex

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.Buying a Rolex watch is no easy feat. The starting price alone is prohibitive for most folks, and that’s before we even start considering waitlists and the carefully manicured dealer relationships and towering secondary market prices and on and on. And, as Roger Federer’s watch proves, even after you clear those challenges there is always another velvet rope keeping most watch collectors from the ultimate prizes. At Wimbledon this past weekend, Rolex ambassador Federer wore a Cosmograph Daytona covered in orange sapphires that was released “silently” this year. The silent release is the watch world’s ultimate flex.They are a tradition in the industry, a way to reserve a ...

The Story Behind the Green Air Force 1s Virgil Abloh Made Exclusively for Museum Guards

On opening day of “Figures of Speech,” the Brooklyn Museum’s new posthumous retrospective of work by the late designer Virgil Abloh, it seemed fitting that the visitors waiting to be let in were all wearing their best sneakers, as the guards were, too. As part of the uniforms that Abloh specially designed for the museum’s security staff, they wore unreleased sneakers from Abloh’s Off-White collaboration with Nike—a pair of low-top Air Force 1s in an extraordinarily bright green.One museumgoer, wearing a pair of spotless Off-White Jordan 1s in University of North Carolina blue, chatted with a guard about whether or not the sneakers (known officially as the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low in “Light Green Spark”) would appear on StockX come week. It was clearly not the guard’s first conversa...

Jay-Z Touts This Season’s Hottest Accessories: A Bucket Hat, Glass-Bottled Water, and a Helicopter

For a certain type of New York magnate, the West 30th Street Heliport is the place to be during the summertime. The world is their oyster, and a helicopter is the fastest way off the island of Manhattan to get to their many, many other pearls.Even at a launching pad, dressing for the skies is key, which is a point Jay-Z underlined when he caught a golden-hour flight to the Hamptons on Thursday evening. But unlike the Logan Roys also heading off into the sunset (though, let’s face it, Logan’s more of a Pier 6 heliport guy), he did so with some panache. Jay accessorized his easy-going summertime outfit—consisting of a crisp Off-White camp shirt, navy trousers, and a gleaming pair of Pumas—with some key summertime statement accessories: namely, a navy tie-dye bucket hat and a tall glass bottl...

Best Hair Cream for Men: The Best Lightweight Hair Creams for Natural Style

Whether or not you have a favorite pomade, gel, clay, or paste, we believe that every guy's lineup should also include some of the best hair cream for men. A super lightweight, you-can-barely-tell-it's-there styler. Why? Because many (most?) hairstyles don't require heavier high-hold products. Because sometimes you just need some light follicular coating and not a full-on shellacking.These lightweight hair creams are a lot like leave-in conditioners, but with the lightest touch of shine and sculptability. They'll accentuate and control curls without compromising volume. They'll tame the unruly long hairs that stray from the flock. They provide direction and definition but never leave it feeling firm or crusty. And if you’ve got thinning hair, some products can texturize without suffocating...

Tissot PRX Gold Watch: A Compact, Sub-$500 Shot of Pure ’70s Glam

At this point in the ongoing ‘70s watch renaissance, you’ve probably got a pretty good handle on the major players—the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus, to name two particularly era-defining examples—along with under-the-radar options like the Girard Perregaux Laureato and the Vacheron Constantin Historiques 222 (which also happens to be one of the hottest “new” watches of 2022). With their chunky bezels and integrated bracelets, they perfectly encapsulate the decade’s freewheeling energy—but their grail status also means you can expect to pay well above retail on the gray market. Don’t sweat it, though: if ‘70s vibes are very much your jam but you don’t have a mid-five-figure budget to blow on your next timepiece, the Tissot PRX boasts all the features that make the d...

The Best Summer Colognes for Men in 2022

The best summer colognes evoke a feeling. Just as summer is punctuated by park sprawls, beach days, and a mojito or three, the best summer fragrances also have some quintessential characteristics: They center on crisp citrus notes, aquatic essence, tropical fruit flavors, as well as refreshing green tones. They emit the optimism of a long, unplugged weekend, and the slow, languid perfection of a 9 p.m. sunset. Best of all, they’re the best candidate for year-round wear, given that we long for summer sun at the height of winter. A warm-weather fragrance can settle into the senses and arouse enough motivation for another blustery day.Below are our latest and lasting favorites among the best summer colognes, radiating seasonal smells like fields of grass, Italian coastal cruises, high-class k...

North West Wore Her Dad Kanye’s Famed Pastelle Varsity Jacket to Paris Fashion Week

“What are those? These are clothes,” once mused North West, eldest daughter of Kim Kardashian and the artist formerly known as Kanye West, inadvertently offering something of a mantra for the fashion-minded Kardashian West brood. Wherever they go, there are clothes.While in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, nine-year-old North and her mom made a stop at a Balenciaga store, both dressed accordingly in wares from the French house. However, North’s cobalt blue varsity jacket that had real Ye heads exclaiming, What are those! This particular garment hails from her dad’s defunct mid-aughts clothing imprint Pastelle, renowned among streetwear fans. Indeed, given that the jacket looks a few sizes too big on North, it could very well be the same one Ye wore to the American Music Awards nearly 15 yea...
