Summer Fridays' New SPF Just Might Be the Brand's Best Product Launch Yet

At this point, I add anything new from Summer Fridays to my cart almost immediately. No questions asked. I've already confessed my undying love for the brand's Overtime Mask ($46) and Heavenly Sixteen Face Oil ($55), but today I want to chat about the brand's latest offering—its new SPF. I know, I'm sure you're already overwhelmed by the amount of sunscreen content on the internet telling you which one to buy. It feels like every summer, there are ten million new options to choose from. But let me tell you exactly who this sunscreen is for. If you like being protected from the sun, but dislike slathering on a white, heavy substance in addition to your skincare, then this one is for you. Summer Fridays is offering a new kind of SPF. One with a milky, serum-like texture that melts into your ...

The Best Street Style From Pitti Uomo

The fashion marathon has up and moved from London to Florence, Italy, home to Pitti Uomo, the grandest menswear trade show on earth. It's been a fun couple days, as evidenced by Grace Wales Bonner's titanic show—and by GQ Show Notes, the subscription-only fashion week newsletter from our fashion writer Samuel Hine. But it wouldn't be a fashion week without even more street style. These are a few of our favorite looks. Source link

The Dior Birkenstocks Are Finally Here

The Dior Birkenstocks first struck ground in the depths of winter, with models’ stockinged feet tucked into nubby felted clogs and sandals as they traversed a Paris runway. But it is now, in the not-quite dead heat of summer, that they have at last arrived, ready to roam the world over.All that’s to say—the much-anticipated Dior x Birkenstock collab, officially known as Dior by Birkenstock, is finally here.The House of Dior released its variations on two pairs—the Tokio back-strapped mule and the Milano back-strapped sandal—for sale on their website this morning, with both styles coming in at a cool $1,100 each. The sandals come in two colorways, black nubuck leather and “Dior gray” felted wool; same goes for the mules, which also come with an additional option of “greige” nubuck. They eac...

Wales Bonner Has Officially Arrived

The show opened with Bonner’s latest collaboration: a T-shirt emblazoned with a painting by Kerry James Marshall, worn over voluminous, flowing shorts. A statement that there are new masters in the city built by and for the old ones. Bonner has made artistic collaboration a central theme of her creative practice, drawing on contemporaries like Eric N. Mack and Tyler Mitchell to help her build out her aesthetic universe. (Both Mack and Mitchell sat in the main courtyard of the palace for the show.) To set the stage in the palace, Bonner worked with the Ghaniana artist Ibrahim Mahama, who covered every inch of the marble floor—and many of the walls—with jute sacks sourced from markets in his home country. It was important, Bonner said, to feel the physicality of African traditions in the spa...

Hairy Dudes, Rejoice: It’s Gonna Be a Hot Hirsute Summer

When you look at the new hot albums of the year, whether from the Weeknd and Bad Bunny, Dan Bejar’s newest batch of Destroyer songs or Father John Misty’s latest, you see a lot of fuzz. Not a week goes by I don’t see a picture of hairy king Robin Williams on a style guy’s Instagram. Chest hair, beard hair, arm hair, mostly unkempt heads of hair: you see it everywhere, and it’s wonderful. It is the summer of the hirsute man.I don’t think things have been quite this hairy since the 1970s, when it seemed like all bets were off, hair-wise. The film icons, like James Caan to Elliott Gould, were hairy. Patti Smith showed off her hairy pits on the cover of Easter. Marvin Gaye spent the decade going from clean-cut soul singer to an all-time icon with his face covered in a beard.Elliott Gould and s...

21 Best Chino Pants for Men in 2022: A Good Pair of Chinos Will Help You Clean Up Nice, No Matter How Long It’s Been

Finding the best chino pants amid a sea of formless khakis can be a painful ordeal. Especially given what a crazy couple of years it's been for pants generally. Weirdness abounds. Swishy is king, pleats are back, dress pants are enormous, and it all can be a little overwhelming at times. Thing is, far-out trousers being in doesn’t mean that more earthbound bottoms are suddenly out. There’s plenty of room under the Golden Age of Pants umbrella for the classics, and it doesn’t get any more classic than some hardy, reliable chinos.As far back as World War II, guys have turned to chinos for their functionality and versatility. There aren’t many types of pants, after all, that feel as at home covered in grease in a mechanic’s garage as they would at a garden party in Martha’s Vineyard. Chinos a...

31 Best Loafers for Men 2022: The Game-Raising Pairs You Need to Crush All Your Summer Fits

Loafers have been having what we in the business call “a moment” for a while now, but the best loafers for men feel more hyper-relevant than ever before. What other shoe, pray tell, is better suited to this particular time: laceless and comfortable like the slippers you’ve been lounging in for months; sharp and stylish enough for the post-vax life you’ve been dreaming about for those same months? (Sigh.) Convinced you need a pair—or five—in your spring rotation? Here's what you should know. How do I choose one? Simple: think about what you're going to wear them with, and then refine your search accordingly. (For more styling how-to, see below.) Once you've found a pair of that’s right for you and your wardrobe, slip ‘em on without a second thought, and ascend to verified style god status. ...

Jay-Z and Blue Ivy Do Father-Daughter Night at Game 5 of the NBA Finals

Jay-Z was all smiles during Game 5 of the NBA Finals in San Francisco on Monday night, sitting courtside with his eldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. Meanwhile, Blue, who is ten, kept it cool, as tweens are wont to do, even when Pops brought her in for a big kiss on the cheek on the Jumbotron or dapped up Steph Curry after the Warriors beat the Celtics 104-94. Dads, right?Jay and Blue coordinated in all-black outfits for the game, though it’s hard to imagine Blue would cop to matching on purpose for the occasion. Jay sported a Puma chore coat to go with a pair of Puma lows modeled after the pairs NBA legend Ralph Sampson wore in the ’80s. (Puma appointed Jay as the brand’s creative director of basketball back in 2018.) Blue, under no such contractual obligation, wore black-and-white “Panda” ...
