I know this is old news by now, but did everyone jump on the Everlane weekender bag?
They’re somehow not all sold out already (after launching yesterday), so…get on it!
I know. I KNOW.
I spotted a pinkie ring in the wild (read: a guy in a suit riding the subway in midtown).
While I can’t get onboard with this accessory, I’m not totally anti-brocessorizing.
Which brings us to the age-old question - how much jewelry can (and should) a guy get away with?
Things I think you should buy: A slimmer, trimmer wallet
For many, the best part of the week comes early on Thursday evening – after you’ve returned home from work, but before you head back out into the night. You sit on your couch, nudge your shoes off, perhaps sip on a libation of sorts. Call it a disco nap. The rest before the revelry. The day’s stresses slip away while the evening waits patiently for you to join it. Sure, tomorrow you have to go back to work, but tomorrow, thank goodness, is Friday… (More)
Things I think you should buy: touchscreen gloves
Last year, I wore fingerless gloves that I bought for a dollar at Walgreens all winter long. You know, the kind you see in movies on old, train-riding hobos, clutching a stick with a handkerchief tied at the end containing all their worldly possessions.
It was, admittedly, not a great look, but those addicted to their iPhones (we can all stop saying “smartphone” now, right? everyone has an iPhone? cool) like I am can relate. You’re not going to hide its light under a bushel just because it’s -16 degrees outside with the windchill. I mean, my friends aren’t going to text themselves about how cold it is outside! But I’d rather not risk nerve damage in my fingertips again this year.
If I was afflicted with man hands, I’d buy this pair of gloves by Five Points, available at Bonobos. Thanks to some kind of crazy astronaut fabric (I made that up, but I mean, I’m pretty sure they’re woven with moon yarn), your touchscreen responds and all five fingers can stay toasty warm all winter long.
Get It On Sale - Warm Winter Scarf
Do you ever look at guys (and girls, for that matter) bundled up on the street and wonder how they wrapped their scarf just so? Perfectly looped, no ends sticking out anywhere, no knots even - they look like they just walked out of an Eddie Bauer ad.
Wonder no further. Meet - the infinity scarf. Also called the “snood” (though I don’t know anyone who still calls it that), this scarf is a tube of fabric you pull over your head. It’s also the answer to all that confusing knotting, draping and otherwise “effortless styling” that’s never so easy as you think it should be.
Girls have been wearing them for a few seasons now, but why should we have all the fun (actually, I think Cyndi Lauper may have had something to do with that)? Consider this shortcut an equal opportunity winter style trick.
Patterned infinity scarf: Topman, $16 (down from $32)
