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...

Reebok Just Leveled Up Its Beloved Beatnik Shoe

Last year, Reebok had a certifiable hit shoe with the Beatnik, a sharp design-forward take on the ever-popular mule. Plucking its silhouette from its archive, the beloved sneaker brand quickly wooed sneakerheads and menswear folks searching for a WFH shoe that was both stylish and comfortable. And now, Reebok has unveiled a new variation that has been revamped so that you can wear it all year long: The Beatnik Moc.The Beatnik has been transformed from a simple mule to somewhere in slip-on shoe territory. Rebook closed the open back, and added both a pull tab and padded collar, so the Moc will fare much better in the rain, snow, or any generally unpleasant weather than its predecessor. However, the original shoe’s most recognizable feature—its exaggerated and rugged saw-tooth rubber sole—re...

Michael Jordan’s New Watch Was Inspired By ‘Miami Vice’

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.Michael Jordan and his dad jeans might not have fit into today’s fashion-forward NBA, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t left his sartorial mark. For starters, there’s the sneaker empire that bears his name and logo. He maintains his signature hoop earring, so famous it’s the subject of a Drake bar: “Don't Michael Jordan still got his hoop earring in?” And the G.O.A.T. has stockpiled one of the more interesting and diverse watch collections on the planet. While most athletes are happy to rotate the classics—the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Rolex Daytona, and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak—across their wrists, MJ has gone in a totally different direction by picking out high-priced pi...

Woody Harrelson’s Wimbledon Hats: A Survey

While there’s no official Wimbledon dress code for spectators, there is a de facto one that skews along the lines of smart, tailored, and British, which, for men, usually means a double-breasted suit and tie, brogues, and ideally a pair of sunglasses to signal that it’s summer. Though competitors are required to wear white, many attendees generally tend to follow in (neutral) suit. But actor Woody Harrelson, who loves watching live tennis and has been going to Wimbledon for years, is hardly one to follow rules to the letter—in his mind, Church Road is as good a place to wear a hemp fiber shirt and Birks as any.However, the one very Wimbledon-y thing that Woody really does stick to is wearing a brimmed hat, typically a Panama or a fedora, which has the effect of being both practical (blocks...

21 Best Aviator Sunglasses for Men in 2022: Ray-Ban, Persol, Warby Parker, and More

All shades are some degree of cool, but the best aviator sunglasses for men might be the absolute coolest. Originally developed in the 1930s, aviators were designed to replace the bulky goggles worn by military pilots, which would frequently fog up at high altitudes. They were crafted with a lightweight metal frame and brow bar that could easily fit under a helmet, teardrop lenses which covered the wearer's entire field of vision, and green lenses to reduce blue light eye strain and cut through glare. Soon after, Bausch & Lomb introduced the style to the civilian market, dubbing them the Ray-Ban Aviator. Sound familiar?From there, aviator sunglasses for men exploded in popularity, worn by flannel-suited Mad Men in the ‘60s, bell-bottomed disco dancers in the ’70s, and just about anybod...

29 Best Men’s Pajamas in 2022: Sleepy Jones, L.L.Bean, Uniqlo, and More

The best men's pajamas are made for more than just lounging. The most stylish options are heavy on the louche sex appeal (pink tiger-print linen, anyone?!) without compromising on comfort or ease of movement. But while comfort-enhancing features like elastic waistbands and highly breathable fabrics like modal are great, your sleepwear should also be stylish enough that you wouldn't be embarrassed to at least answer the door—and maybe even leave the house—wearing them. The right PJs should be a year-round flex, from ultra-soft flannel pajama sets that'll make you feel like a worldly sophisticate to silky lounge pants you could—and should!—wear out and about with, say, a big, boxy button-down and a pair of loafers.That 5-pack of XXL Hanes tees you ordered by accident and then repurposed as e...

Why Cartier Was All Over Thom Browne’s Fashion Show

No one is better than Thom Browne when it comes to marshaling rich and famous men into a uniform of the designer’s choosing. It began when the well-heeled demo eagerly donned his famously shrunken ankle-baring gray suits, the cornerstone of his brand and business. And over the past several years, Browne has succeeded in persuading plenty of men to test the skirted waters. Now Browne is adding another element to his uniform: a Cartier Tank.Stitched just below the models’ shirt sleeves at his recent Paris Fashion Week show were embroidered watches, mostly representing the Cartier Tank, with a few meant to look like the Rolex Day-Date, Browne confirmed via email. Like many things in his universe, the detail is stolen directly from the designer’s own wardrobe, with the embroidered version mode...

The Wit and Wordplay of Willie Norris

But Norris’s very presence at Outlier, regardless of the brand’s output, is radical. "Let's be real; nothing like me has ever existed in fashion," she says as our second round of drinks arrives. She's not wrong: trans representation in fashion is still sparse. It was only in the fall of 2019 when the lead designer of No Sesso, Pierre Davis, made history as the first trans woman to present a collection on the official New York Fashion Week calendar (though other nonbinary and trans designers had shown off-schedule during previous seasons).Norris tells me all this with her hands and takes the extra time between words to enunciate vowels. There is an intensity to the cadence of our conversation. We rarely talk over each other or get side-tracked, and she wants me to know that she is serious a...
