Take a Front Row Seat for Off-White’s Ambitious New Era

As the Paris fashion cognoscenti continue to swap rumors about who will succeed the late Virgil Abloh at the helm of Louis Vuitton Men’s, one of Abloh’s longtime collaborators is confidently asserting a new direction at Off-White. Ib Kamara, the British stylist and editor-in-chief of Dazed, was named Off-White’s Art and Image Director in May, following an inspired three year stretch as Abloh’s most trusted stylist. Since then, Kamara has been deepening the grooves Abloh laid down at the brand he founded in 2012. After Thursday night’s Off-White show, the first overseen by Kamara, he explained how he and the design studio approached the SS23 collection, which was originally started by Abloh before his death. “We sort of discovered all of our house codes, and we’re experimenting, and we’re t...

Ryan Gosling Is Gucci’s Newest Guy

Big news in luggage: Ryan Gosling is the face of Gucci's new Valigeria campaign, which is centered around its travel gear, and will be seen on billboards popping up across the planet as you read this. Shot by photographer Glen Luchford, Gosling is seen with different pieces from the brand's “Gucci Savoy” collection. In one image he's pushing a Gucci luggage-stacked bell boy trolley, The Darjeeling Limited-style, while sporting a '70s-style, waist-cinched suit; in another, he's seen in a Hawaiian shirt from Gucci's Spring 2022 collection (worn by Macaulay Culkin on the catwalk, and already seen on Gosling on the red carpet) surrounded by GG monogrammed suitcases and carry-on bags (all of which will be available to shop in due course). Elsewhere he can be seen sitting on the back of a Chevy ...

Espro French Press Sale: Save 20% on Our Favorite Coffee Brewer

Investing in any Espro French press is the quickest way to level up your home brewing; so much so, that its baseline mode, the P3, is our favorite French press on the market—the one we'd recommend to practically everyone. It has its flaws (like poor heat retention), but it's still top-notch. And right now, it's a rare 20% off.The P3 implements a couple of fine-mesh filters to ensure a cleaner, tastier mug of java than its competitors, even those in the same price range. Tiny sediments are kept away from your coffee, so the joe that ends up in your cup has fewer bits and grounds without requiring you to do any additional work. Once you're done brewing—say, after four minutes or so—the plunger is designed to stop the extraction process so you don't end up with dull, empty flavors. Head over ...

The Best Wallets for Men in 2022: 29 Lean, Mean Accessories to Reorganize Your Life

Shopping for the best wallets for men is a lot like that one time you actually managed to clear out your garage. You could see the floor in there for the first time since 1997! There was room to park your car! All of the boxes were accurately labeled and easily accessible! The right wallet will give you that blissful feeling of organization every day of your life, when you head out into the world unencumbered by all the needless junk currently polluting your pockets. If you elicit gasps at the dinner table when you haul out your overstuffed behemoth of a billfold (and it’s not because your friends are jerks who think you never pick up the tab), it’s probably time to trade in for a newer, fresher model. And now that restaurants are finally again open to hear those gasps, this is a great tim...

Here's Where Fashion Editors Shop Chic and Affordable Home Décor

Hodinkee x Bamford: Why Do Watch Collectors Love Snoopy So Much?

In his daydreams, Snoopy took on many personas, almost all of them world-famous: the greatest living surgeon, a skilled WW1 fighter pilot, an arm wrestling champion, and the coolest most sunglasses-pulling-off creature on earth. Last year, watch designer George Bamford, along with the limited-edition team at watch publication and retailer Hodinkee, received an interesting Snoopy-related assignment: comb through the catalog of the famous cartoon dog’s alter egos, pitch their favorites, and decide which one belonged on the dial of an almost-$2,000 mechanical watch.The first collaborative Hodinkee-Bamford London Snoopy watch featured Joe Preppy and released in April of this year. The GMT sported a black-and-white 24-hour internal bezel—and a bespectacled Snoopy wearing a tweed jacket. It sold...

17 Best Rugby Shirts for Men in 2022 to Toughen Up Your Wardrobe

Rugby is a game of contrasts, and the best rugby shirts reflect that duality. On the one hand, it’s a sport played almost exclusively by dudes built like The Rock, who crash into one another over and over again with the unremitting fury and general chaos of a hotly-contested round of Hungry Hungry Hippos. On the other, it was invented by a bunch of prepsters at a British boarding school, which means it has all the peculiar etiquette and collegiate traditions of something like rowing baked right in.Rugby shirts, similarly, are built thick and tough to survive opponents yanking on ‘em for 80 minutes straight, but they're also refined and collared like their close relative the polo shirt. And they’re Swiss-army-knife versatile: you can throw one on alone with jeans or chinos or shorts, or you...

Attention to Detail Is the Secret to Success in Netflix's Do Revenge

We asked Do Revenge costume designer Alana Morshead what her favorite teen movie was growing up, and the answer was no surprise: Clueless, followed closely by Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. These visually iconic ’90s films (notably styled by costume designer Mona May) not only established the tone for teen movies of the era but also marked a new age in fashion on-screen with vibrant wardrobes, archetypal accessories, and an inherent DIY-ness just as critical to the story as the plot. Streaming now on Netflix, Do Revenge is an homage to classic ’90s and ’00s teen movies as well as an astute social commentary on the youth culture of today. While it combines elements of Mean Girls, Jawbreaker, and even a dash of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Do Revenge is referential but i...

He brought a new attitude, too: Burberry's long-standing logo was replaced with a boxy, Helvetica one designed by art director and graphic designer Peter Saville. Tisc...

31 Best Sex Toys for Men in 2022

Cock Rings: “Cock rings are one of my must-have recommendations for people with penises,” Chen says. “They have three main (but not exhaustive) benefits: cock rings make maintaining an erection less effortful, make erections stiffer, and make holding back an ejaculating orgasm easier.” They do this by allowing blood to flow into your penis but preventing it from flowing back out as easily. Some cock rings vibrate, for the enjoyment of both you and your partner, while some are just simple, stretchy rings with no extra features.Butt Plugs & Prostate Massagers: The prostate, gland located about two inches inside your butt, on the rectal wall closest to the front of your body, is also known as the P-spot. It’s thought to be the anatomical equivalent of the G-spot, because touching it is pl...
