Today’s must-reads from around the Internet.
July’s a tricky month in the world of printed menswear.
Because even though summer only officially started last Friday, we’ve been talking about it since early May—and the last thing on our minds in the sweltering heat we’re all now starting to feel is fall tweeds.
It’s this “trickiness,” among other things, that led the gents at two of our big three men’s rags to the same decision years ago: July wasn’t worth the hassle of its own issue, so they tacked it onto the end of June’s. Which has given us the rare opportunity to look past those dusty old stalwarts to a few of the other menswear mags out there.
The annual day of financial reckoning has arrived: it’s tax day.
And in honor of this yearly government-sanctioned fleecing, we’d like to applaud those intrepid few who’ve stuck it to the man—and wound up with a free swimming pool out of the deal, or recouped a $50,000 night of making it rain—by rehashing some of history’s most ingenious write-offs and how they turned out. So without further ado, we present to you:
GQ’s interview with Drake this month is troubling for many reasons—not least of which is the most depressing failed come-on we’ve ever seen in a cover story. But perhaps the worst revelation about Mr. Aubrey Graham is his favorite drink: the wine spritzer.
We’ll just say it: you can do better.
