The Bonkers ‘Bullet Train’ Red Carpet Showing Continues in L.A.

At last, the menswear locomotive that is the Bullet Train press tour has reached Los Angeles.After high-kicking their way through Europe, the movie’s motley cast—Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, and Joey King among them—have reconvened stateside. For the film’s LA premiere, the gang added a few more co-stars, including Bad Bunny and Logan Lerman, to their passenger log. And maybe it’s because the movie literally takes place on Japan’s state-of-the-art high-speed rail system, but there has been a kinetic energy to the red-carpet showing for David Leitch’s newest action flick. Pitt and Henry, in particular, have been sporting some of the sauciest menswear we’ve seen in a while.Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, and Brad Pitt attend the Bullet Train red carpet on July...

14 Best iPhone Charger Cables That Aren’t Made By Apple in 2022

You’d be forgiven for assuming the best iPhone charger cable comes from Apple. After all, the company’s phones, headphones, and accessories all use a proprietary connection you won’t see on any non-Apple products. When the Lightning cable was first introduced in 2012, all the third-party alternatives to Apple’s own cable were basically junk. They frayed easily. They didn’t always successfully connect to your computer or iPad. They felt janky, wobbling when you plugged them into charging ports and resisting when you pulled them out. And the cheapest of them charged so slowly you probably would have been better off using some kind of novelty hand crank.In the years since, the universe of cable standards has changed a lot. Lightning cables are old news, since almost all Android phones and new...

Buckle Up, Because Yeezy Day 2022 Is Here

While the artist formerly known as Kanye West may be an iconic Gemini, it makes sense that Yeezy Day—a.k.a. your annual best shot at snagging a pair of Yeezy sneakers at retail prices—falls during Leo season. Now’s the time to show up and show off.Since Ye and Adidas teamed up to make sneakers in 2013, Yeezys have been difficult for consumers to get their hands on, at least without hitting the secondhand market. In recent years, though, Ye’s premonition that “Eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys” has become somewhat more true: Yeezy sneakers, as opposed to the brand’s very popular and harder-to-get foam slides, have come to dominate StockX sales. In response to all this, the brands introduced Yeezy Day in 2019 as a semiannual release of new and restocked styles acro...

This One Major Fall Print Trend Is Meant for Maximalists

Maybe it's because I'm generally over the heat or because I've already grown weary of summer trends. But before you write me off, hear me out: There are so many good trends bubbling up for the season, from grunge to ultra-feminine...

Ben Affleck Wears His Mood on His Wrist

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.The biggest watch story of 2021 involved Ben Affleck and his romantically nostalgic choice of wristwear. In case you missed it: when the actor got back together with former fiancee Jennifer Lopez, he put all his efforts toward recapturing the magic of 2002 through either science or magic. Part of this involved dusting off the Franck Muller watch that Lopez gave him and which he wore when they were first together in the early 2000s. Since this moment, you could almost interpret Affleck’s mood through what’s on his wrist.Before getting back together with Lopez, Affleck hardly ever wore a watch. I know this because I wrote about looking at what Affleck wore nearly every day...

Dyson Omni-Glide Vacuum Sale: One of the Brand’s Newest Vacuums Is Nearly Half Off Right Now

One of Dyson's newest vacuum cleaners is also its most peculiar. Why? Because it only works on hardwood floors, making it the sole Dyson vacuum not able to adapt to all floor types. Released in 2021, the Dyson Omni-glide was overshadowed by the V15 Detect, which was announced at the same time. The V15 Detect has its teched-out laser head, but the Omni-glide has the supreme ability to make vacuuming kind of, sort of fun. It's one of the lightest Dyson vacuums around—weighing a hair over four pounds—and quickly converts from stick to handheld. The cleaning head can swivel 360 degrees, which makes the vacuum incredibly easy to maneuver. (Seriously: This thing glides all over the floor with so much ease that it's like you're slipping on ice.) And if you have low-sitting furniture, it can also ...

This Watch Just Went to Space. What’s That Worth?

Sotheby’s is familiar with the price-boosting effects of space. The auction house has ridden auctions of well-traveled Omega Speedmasters (famously, the official watch of NASA) and former astronauts’ watches to massive sales. Space, famously, is now a playground for the superrich—and, presumably, also the slightly less rich, who can’t front the $55 million it costs to go on a private mission but might settle for a watch that did. “More than fifty years have passed since the first successful human spaceflight and in that time only a select few have earned the privilege of seeing Earth from outer space, making the feat of 'collecting Space' one of the fastest growing sectors in our market,” said Janet Tham, Sotheby’s watch specialist. Consequently, watch brands are eager to make it so space....

Actually, ‘The Bear’ Is a Menswear Show

The Bear -- Pictured: Jeremy Allen White as Carmen 'Carmy' Berzatto. CR: Frank Ockenfels/FXCopyright 2022, FX Networks. All rights reserved.This wasn't exactly intentional. “The chefs I’ve come across and met are some of the most stylish people in a way that’s so effortless,” Courney Wheeler, The Bear’s costume director for episodes two through eight. “It’s no surprise Carmy is as well given his background.” The kitchen backdrop is merely the crostini on which to serve a heaping portion of menswear pâté.Cristina Spiridakis, who handled costumes for the show’s pilot, put it this way in an email: “It was never the intention to be 'stylish' per se—a white tee, black Dickies, and Birks is a common look amongst chefs. Carmy is a person that appreciates quality and classics, items that last, tha...

How a Crocheted Grandma Hat Became a Celebrity Style Grail

In April, a few days after announcing his new album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, Kendrick Lamar attended a Los Angeles Dodgers game. He sat in the right-field bleachers among the Dodgers faithful, surrounded by a sea of blue baseball caps. His choice of headwear, by contrast, stuck out: a black and white crochet-knit bucket hat, tall as a top hat and pulled low over his eyes like a beanie.The only thing stranger than seeing Lamar embrace a bardcore aesthetic was continuing to see him do so. According to NYC-based artist Emily Dawn Long, who designed the hat in collaboration with the knitwear designer Maria Dora, Lamar has purchased about 20 of them so far. And he seems to wear the hat, which Dawn Long dubbed the “Hat Named Wanda,” just about any time he’s not donning his diamond-encr...
