01 June News — Rufskin’s smooth design

You know, it still completely amazes me that Google News knows what I want! For example, today I thought about denim guys coats while eating breakfast, and then found this news post that is all about denim guys coats! No doubt about it, things change all the time, and we are excited to share this article. Listen, if you know of other news releases on this same line of thought, then definitely let us know!

The sun-kissed outdoors of Southern California serves as the locale for Rufskin promotional photography. “The crispest lights are in the desert,” explains company co-founder and head designer Hubert Pouches. “I’m happiest surrounded by palm trees.”
Pouches personally photographs Rufskin product images at an outdoor studio at the home he shares with his partner of 25 years, Douglas Coats. Co-owner and company president Coats launched the high-profile San Diego-based men’s clothing business with Pouches in 2002. The duo met in the early 1990s in Paris, when Portland native Coats worked as a model at the agency that French-born Pouches owned and operated.
Rufskin began with crafting well-cut, form-emphasizing and uniquely styled men’s jeans, an item of surprisingly scarce offering at the time and which Pouches noticed was driving male shoppers to the women’s section of clothing stores. The business quickly expanded into a widely known creator and purveyor of swimwear, underwear, athletic wear and casual clothing items for men. Originating from a garage in San Diego, business growth was rapid, evolving to a globally recognized company respected for its well-crafted wares.
A conversation with Pouches quickly reveals his passion for the company’s products and commitment to brand excellence. His background as…

The Frieze Art Fair began in London in 2003, introduced by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, the publishers of the contemporary art magazine Frieze. Appropriately enough, this English import’s New York edition takes place each spring on Randalls Island, which served as a military post for British troops in the Colonial era.
This year was the fourth New York iteration of Frieze, which ran from Thursday to Sunday. Collectors, gadabouts and gallerists came by ferry and Uber to stroll through the quarter-mile-long tent filled with works represented by 198 commercial dealers and three nonprofit galleries.
“Better hurry: All the good art will be gone,” an editor said as the artists, art lovers and scenesters filed in. We met with some of the stylish first arrivals and asked them about their looks…

25 May News — A Guide to the Confusing

Today is Monday, 25 May and I woke up this morning curious about news on men’s casual pants. Think about it… what was it like back in the day to ONLY have hard copy tabloid paper news copy to read? Too slow, right?

Commenting on women’s dress and skirt lengths has been the subject of frenzied fashion talk since mankind set its mind to the task of covering up. But recently, fluctuations in the length of men’s trousers have caused raised eyebrows and head scratching too. Skirt lengths are so last millenium This spring the most fashionable trousers are finishing a number of inches above the masculine ankle, sending some guys into a sartorial tailspin not experienced since soccer player David Beckham wore a sarong (a fancy word for a wrap-around skirt) in 1998.

Much of this can be laid at the door of designer Thom Browne, a man who wears trousers of any length except long. “Thom Browne has made very short cropped trousers his signature over the past several years and that works for a very specific guy,” Brian Boye, executive fashion director of Men’s Health told the Observer. Mr. Browne’s edgy, cropped trousers have now filtered out into the mainstream of men’s fashion. To keep your trousers the right side of something a clown might wear, according to Mr. Boye, the trick is to ensure they don’t creep up any higher than mid-shin. “It’s best if they fall about an…

Farewell winter coats, hello shirt sleeves. Stephen Doig rates the season’s best men’s fashion investments.
Return of the mac
As optimistic as we tend to become about spring’s emergence and the jolly promise of sun-drenched days, May weather still calls for a dose of wardrobe realism. Short shirt sleeves and fresh linens may speak of balmy climes, but the effect diminishes somewhat when you’re shivering in Arctic gusts. You can’t go wrong by investing in a solid piece of outerwear from Herno, an Italian company that has been creating technically accomplished coats since the 1940s. This classic mac (above) continues that tradition £818, available from clubmonaco. Even the most contemporary menswear brands are turning to the quiet joy of a sensible mac and utilising its minimalist charm. Albam, renowned for its British-made, utilitarian pieces, has created a lightweight mac in a water-repellent Italian cotton, its seams sealed internally with military-spec tape to ensure maximum water resistance.
Sneaker preview
Trainer connoisseurs have long been waiting for the launch of a one-off collaboration between Nike and Dover Street Market that reinvents the iconic Air Jordan. Why is that important? Because if you’re something of a sole-seeker, you approach a rarefied trainers …
