Last weekend, we were lucky enough to catch an advance screening of Wes Anderson’s latest opus, The Grand Budapest Hotel, due to hit theaters next Friday.
Stylistically, it was awesome—which came as no surprise, given the director’s personal track record of impeccable style. But there was one distinctly Andersonian quirk that stood out most this go-round: the facial hair.

And then there’s the perfect satin warm-up jacket for riding the pine or the uptown express. In fact, there’s so much good stuff, we thought we’d pick out our favorites.
Every Wednesday we’re giving you a deeper look into what makes the minds behind Kempt tick. We call it: The Kempt Five.
For years, indigo was a term relegated to the dark corners of the denim-obsessed, but nowadays it’s been popping up everywhere—and far beyond jeans.
Which is great, because indigo can be so many things. And menswear has begun embracing the centuries-old natural dye in all of its forms—from blazers knit with indigo-dyed yarns to garment-dyed indigo sweatpants—thanks in no small part to the gents at San Francisco’s Unionmade who were at the forefront of the beyond-denim indigo movement.

Sad news today, as word came down that writer/director/comedy luminary Harold Ramis has lost his battle with a rare autoimmune disease. Here’s what Ramis had to say when our colleagues at UrbanDaddy Chicago caught up with the city’s native son and the mind behind Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day and some of the most quotable lines of the past 40 years…
