Kempt Style Shifters

Style Shifter

It should come as no surprise that this natty gent here keeps shop for Billy Reid at his Dallas outpost.

We stumbled upon Matt on the latest stop of our Style Shifters project, powered by Cadillac, where we’ve been touring the most stylish hoods of the most stylish cities across the nation to capture what personal style means regionally—something we found looks much different in Brooklyn than in Miami or San Francisco. And since Dallas was our last stop, we thought we’d give you the heads-up to give it one last look, now that you can take in the entire country of dapperness at once.

We must say, it was one heck of a ride.

The October Issues

It’s October (yes, already) and that means one thing: a new crop of magazines has hit the shelves. September was the big rallying point for the fall menswear transition, so now it’s less about how fall looks and more about how fall feels: there’s tweed, the upcoming elections and awards season jockeying (coincidentally, each cover featured an A-list actor). So, let’s get into it.

High Concept

Lately, we’ve been worried that the looming collapse of the auto industry might provoke some kind of belt-tightening—maybe even cut back on some of those pipe dreams that could never possibly be produced. But what would we do without our precious concept cars?

Well, there are still a few of them kicking around. This Cadillac model is called the World Thorium Fuel concept (aptly referred to as “WTF”) and it’s designed to run for a full century without maintenance…besides adjusting the tires every few years. There’s a nuclear reactor in the back to keep fuel going, and every major system is redundant, so it should be the best car in the world long after we’re all in Mad Max territory—if it ever gets built, that is.

Until then, we’ll just have to make do with non-nuclear cars.
