7 Celebrity Bermuda Short Looks To Recreate

Photo: Robert Kama / GettyImages; Getty Images; WavyPeter/ SplashNews.com; The Image Direct Lately, there seems to be one question that's collectively plaguing the fashion industry: "are Bermuda shorts back?" I've had countless conversations over dinner and at previews; I've read numerous stories from fellow editors and seen the conversation spark up on Twitter about Bermuda shorts. And while un...

Travis Barker Might Make You Reconsider the DIY Jort

In an episode of the 1999 cult series Freaks and Geeks, the Neil Peart-loving burnout Nick Andopolis (portrayed by a teenage Jason Segel) shared what I have always assumed to be a truism applicable to drummers everywhere: no other type of pants can provide the full range of mobility—nay, freedom—that drumming requires like a pair of shorts.Whether or not this is true for the generational drummer Travis Barker when he’s behind the kit, he certainly has a knack for the sort of gnarly-cool garments that look like they’ve probably survived many nights on a tour bus idling in an Indiana parking lot. For example: while out and about on a recent 90-degree day in Los Angeles, Barker sported a pair of ultra-baggy, low-slung black jean shorts hacked off somewhere around the knee area, entering into ...

Issey Miyake’s Menswear Revolution Was Pleated

Sargent soon found himself wearing them to dinners and parties. To Miyake, user friendliness never came at the cost of elegance, making Homme Plissé is one of the only brands that you can wear in coach and also to a Met Gala afterparty. “They’re not sweatpants, right?” says Sargent. The material is structured yet soft, with a pleasant sheen that can read as formal or not, depending on the light. And the imaginative silhouettes that look demure one moment seem to come alive when the wearer moves—or better yet, dances.Issey Miyake takes his bow at his Spring-Summer 1994 runway show in Paris. Pool ARNAL/PAT/Getty ImagesTo Miyake devotees, the designer’s pleated garments approach an almost universal system of dressing. “In a way, Pleats Please has a democratic sort of spirit to it, in that nob...

How Not Wearing a Shirt Became the Celebrity Style Move of the Year

The reason for all these bare chests isn’t that deep, at least according to Barnett, Wade’s stylist. She sees the no-shirt look as a natural point in menswear’s cyclical rotation. After polos buttoned to the tippity-top, air ties, and turtlenecks took hold in the mid-2010s, we’ve fashion-trended our way to the opposite end of the spectrum. “It's just a part of fashion where it's like, ‘We've had enough. Now we're gonna go the other extreme,’” Barnett said. What started with what she called “man cleavage”—a shirt unbuttoned to revealing depths—has evolved into ditching the shirt altogether.Of course, this isn’t just about the trend pendulum. As fashion takes steps towards its freakiest and most enjoyable state, few things feel more carefree than going shirtless on a red carpet. That was the...

TheraPearl Cooling Eye Mask: The Best Hangover Cure Costs $13

Simple logic tells you that hangover cures do not work. If they did—if a milk thistle pill or electrolyte fizzy tab or activated charcoal nano-spray actually made you feel less hungover—said pill/tab/nano-spray would change the world as we know it. Martin Shkreli would be trying to hijack the patent from jail. They’d replace Presidents' Day with Hangover Inventor Person Day. Media jobs could start at 9am.But, no. The best and only cure, unfortunately, is moderation. And by now that ship has sailed and is at least three sheets to the wind. People will tell you that you should have a pint of water for every pint of beer. I’m sure this works, but I’d rather stay in than carry around a pint of beer in my left and a pint of water in my right. People will also say working out first thing in the ...

Chris Pine and His Dad Robert Pine Prove the Menswear Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the (Pine) Tree

It’s no secret that Chris Pine has been freaking it on the outfit front lately. Under the guidance of the sister styling duo Wendi and Nicole Ferreira, the People’s Chris has become an eclectically old-school dresser, a wearer of weird summer hats and high-kicking huaraches, and the owner of a beard fit for a sea-weary lighthouse watchman. The persona suits him so well that you may just wonder if he was predisposed to it. Born with it, even.On Monday night, a suspenders-wearing Chris accompanied his bowtie-wearing dad, the actor Robert Pine—best known for playing Sergeant Joseph Getraer on the beloved 1977-83 crime drama CHiPs—to the premiere of dad’s new Apple TV+ series, Five Days at Memorial. (The elder Pine plays Dr. Horace Baltz, a longtime physician working in a New Orleans hospital ...

Adsum x Timex MK1 Watch: The Brooklyn Brand’s First Timepiece Wants You to See the Forest and the Trees

If you had to distill Adsum's design ethos into a single sentiment, it’d be something like "simple is best". The Brooklyn-based brand excels at making easy-wearing menswear staples stripped of extraneous details, with a focus on fit and fabric instead. Its pieces skew outdoors-y but steer clear of over-the-top gorp aesthetics—shorts that can handle a grueling hike as easily as a Sunday morning coffee run, say, or swishy rain jackets that don’t scream “last chance at REI”. Over the years, the brand’s remit has extended to include almost every part of the closet, though it’s never risked a foray into the watch market. But with the help of the horology experts at Timex, Adsum's first timepiece is officially here—and true to the brand’s guiding principles, it’s about as low-key as a hotly-anti...

Haus Sale: The Buzzy, Low-ABV Booze Brand Is Taking Up to 50% Off Its Signature Range of Apéritifs

Yesterday morning, Haus co-founder Helena Price Hambrecht announced on Twitter that the low-ABV apéritif brand had lost its lead investor, leaving it unable to continue operations. (Haus may yet be acquired by another company, but its future is looking fuzzy.) When the California-based brand launched in 2019, its sleek design and millennial-friendly serif lettering stood out like a sore thumb. In a market crowded with double IPAs and barrel-proof whiskey, its range of lower-ABV beverages—and apéritifs in particular, which are popular in Europe but less so stateside—was a novelty, quickly endearing it to booze drinkers looking for a milder buzz and a more complex alternative to Campari and Aperol.So it seems fitting that the tweet arrived with a, uh, bittersweet announcement: to offload its...

The 19 Best Backpacks for College 2022: Campus-Ready Bags From Bellroy, Herschel, Patagonia, and More

The best backpacks for college are a little misleading. When your commute requires balancing a phone in one hand and a breakfast sandwich in the other, a canvas tote ain’t going to cut it—let alone accommodate a 15-inch laptop and your gym clothes. So unless you work at a white shoe law firm or find yourself auditioning for the next season of Industry, they’re also crucial pretty much everywhere else. But what separates a merely good option from the really, truly great?Storage capacity, for one. If you’re headed back to campus this fall, you'll want a backpack with around 22L of volume. That’s enough space for a day of classes, and in the post-grad world, plenty of room for a change of clothes and a hefty lunch. But merely holding all your stuff does not a great backpack make; room for all...

John Mayer’s Watch Was Once a Well-Kept Secret

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.Count on John Mayer to always find the obscure, outrageous watch that seems tailor-made for him. For the better part of the year, this salmon-dial perpetual calendar was hiding out, secretly tucked away in Japan as an exclusive release that not even the U.S.-based AP team was familiar with, according to Hodinkee. But late last summer, when a second batch became available stateside, Mayer immediately became a customer. It was a natural fit: after all, our officially designated WWMIC (Watch World’s Most Influential Collector) already has an abiding love for mystical hard-to-buy fashion from Japan and maintains a storage unit to hold all his Visvim.Even were it not emerging...
