This is the first in a seasonal series on New York Fashion Week.
We hopped up to the New York Public Library this morning to see Jack Spade’s first-ever full-on Fashion Week presentation.
It’s time to focus, gentlemen. Sure, there’s still snow on the ground, fall gear is being sent down the runways, and a pesky groundhog would like you to think otherwise, but: spring is right around the corner.
And believe it or not, the spring menswear is already trickling into shops.

Earlier today, Will Ferrell took to Reddit for an Ask Me Anything session. Hilarity ensued.
But the best part had to be when he hopped over to Reddit’s menswear guidance corner, /malefashionadvice, to post a selfie on what he wore today. He then went on to describe his outfit, head to toe—which, save for an oxford cloth button-down over that chupacabra T-shirt, wouldn’t have looked too out of place at last week’s menswear market.

(The city can get awfully crowded with half of Europe over here.) So we’ve put together this handy cheat sheet of talking points:
The Kempt 100 is our definitive list of the 100 best-dressed men of the past 100 years.
If there’s one thing to be gleaned from our next batch of Kempt 100 Legends, it’s this: speak softly and carry a big… guitar. Yep, four of the next five plucked the six-string for a living. And the other guy, well… let’s just say he didn’t have any problem with groupies either…

If you can believe it, we’re already one month down for 2014. And while January may have felt like it just flew by in a turtlenecked polar vortex, we’d like to take a moment to remember some of the more handsome moments we shared in the past month.
