Mile Davis

Jazz legend Miles Davis takes a pause to relax and probably observe what was going around him looking very stylish. He is wearing a simple and eye catching ensemble made up of a grey pullover, with a dark scarf wrapped around him, some beige trousers, and a pair of black shoes. R.V.M.S

Past Predicts The Future

This video basically predicts from the 1930's of what fashion will be like in the 2000's.

Although these predictions are quite amusing, some of the pieces do look quite familiar, hmmm.

Itsnotyouitsme Report: 7 Things You Need to Know Now

GQ's Jim Moore wrote up on what you can—and should—learn from the Milan & Paris runway shows. I condensed the list of 13 styles to 7 of my choices.

The Short Shearling
Remember those long, heavy, overly-fancy shearlings of a few years back? Now forget them. Shearlings get hipper—and hip-lengthed—for Fall 2010, thanks to designers who understand a shorter proportion that is still long on style. Look for military bomber shapes and new shades like all-black, as well as army-issued hues. These shearling jackets are lightweight, yet expensive, so find a classic style that will last you more than just a few seasons.

Nordic Knit
Call it folkloric, Peruvian, or reindeer-ready, these graphic sweaters are based on ethnic repeat patterns that look bold and masculine. Wear one on your next ski trip, or to look like you just got back from one. This sweater makes a strong statement, so keep the pairing sparing by putting it with jeans and alpine hikers, goggles not included.

The Versatile Turtle A fine-gauge merino wool (or cashmere) turtleneck sweater will rock your fall wardrobe-world. It's elegant and understated while still making a statement. Think Robert Evans or Redford as classically cool icons who wore this classically cool iconic sweater. Try a pale gray or stone-colored one under a jacket, suit, or shearling and you gain instant style status, without even wearing a tie. The fit should be snug and the neck high; and mocks need not apply.

The Shadow-Plaid Suit
A strong plaid suit, often considered dandyish and too difficult to marry with shirts and ties, may be a tough thing for most guys to pull off. But fall's new breed of plaid suits are muted and shadowed, and in some cases feature a shot of deep color in the form of a windowpane pattern. These plaids suggest a quiet confidence and team up perfectly with natty or subdued shirts and ties. This is modern traditionalism at its best.

The Alpine Hiker Based on the authentic Swiss ski-trail boot from the 1950s, and recently made popular by the American footwear company Merrill, these hiking boots hit the Fall 2010 runway in high-fashion stride. Seen in black or brown leather, they feature hooks and grommets which make lacing easy and give the boot an authentic outdoorsy vibe. Pull them on with heavy wool pants or plaid lined khakis and you re sure to look plush in the slush.

In any fall palette there exists an army of dark hues, sometimes as gloomy as the weather. But relief has come in the form of a bright (sometimes shockingly bright) wooly sweater. These pops of color look best worn under a jacket, as an accent. And while we love this hot-pink crewneck from Prada, other great styles exist, like a cardigan in scarlet merino or a V-neck in grass-green cashmere.

Your need for tweed revved up last fall with the rebirth of cool tweed sports jackets at every price point. For next fall, check out a topcoat version in dark donegal or nubby herringbone. You can throw one on over a flannel suit or pair it with jeans. It's versatile and stylish, and it'll remind you of your grandfather—without the mothball smell.

People in Japan Don’t Like Abercrombie & Fitch, Either

'Abercrombie & Fitch has struggled for years to regain its momentum in the US.

To No Surpirse.

But instead of focusing on fixing its problems here, the teen retailer continues to expand abroad.

While countries like the U.K. have embraced the Bruce Weber-inspired imagery and rugged basics, Japan isn’t so keen, according to The Business of Fashion. Things that they find annoying about the store, which opened in December 2009 in the upscale Ginza District:

The Ginza outpost is charging double what stores in the US charge.
Almost nobody working the shop floor is “authentically” Japanese.
The staff greets shoppers in English.
Male staff members wear their shirts unbuttoned.'

Come on A&F...just give it up already! Make room for stores we actually fancy and find alluring

When Situations Are Grave Enough Don't Forget To Dis-invite This Man

'The infamous Jim Kosek from is losing his MIIIIIIIIND. Seriously, this kidda needs to stop inhaling the snow from behind the studio, and start smoking something else instead. Oh Boy.....hold on tight for this weather report!

WTF | Dean’s Whisky 'Surprisingly Mild' Ad

'In an effort to cast their net on a wider audience, Dean’s Whisky released this new 'Surprisingly Mild' ad with photography by Johannes Pöttgens.. They want you to know that you don't have to be a rugged straight man to enjoy it. It's mild enough to be enjoyed by effeminate guys recreating Marilyn Monroe’s famous scene from The Seven Year Itch.'Homotography

Snow & Ashes

Synopsis: 'Blaise Dumas(Rhys Coiro), war correspondent for Frontline Reporters, covers an armed confict in Eastern Europe. When he wakes from a temporary coma in his home town in Canada, Blaise discovers that his long time collaborator and photographer has not come back with him. He then sets out to recapture the events that led to his friends disappearance and his own narrow escape from the war zone. A compelling human post-modern western tale that forces us to ponder and reflect on the unpredictable choices of life and on the strength of the media and the sacrifices that journalists must make for their craft.'

Keith Haring x Tommy Hilfiger Arrives at Colette

"Another week, another collaboration.

Tommy Hilfiger and the Keith Haring foundation launched a line of shoes at Colette today. They’ll be on sale for two weeks at the Parisian concept store, with a broader release set for the autumn of this year.

Their lovechild consists of sneakers and Wellington boots covered in Haring’s most famous paintings.

There are skinny tennis shoes with the Barking Dog and chunky rain boots with the Dancing Man for men, women, and their trendy children.

This is, of course, yet another attempt on Hilfiger’s behalf to regain its fashion cred. But what’s the big difference between this and the Mona Lisa underwear available at the Louvre?" Fashionista

Underoos are one accessory(whether you choose to wear em or not.) But some neat wellies never hurt no one. I want a pair! Si si para me.

Pierce Taylor by Mariano Vivanco | Feed Back

'If Jesus Christ wore Rick Owens and was a fan of grunge & Goth rock, he would look like Pierce Taylor [Wilhelmina] in ‘Feed Back’ by Mariano Vivanco. Inspired by the definition of derelict, the fierce Pierce was styled by James Valeri with hair by Brent Lawlerin for the new issue of Wonderland magazine.' Homotography
