Rope It In: A treatise on the roped shoulder (and how we might have gone too far with the unstructured-ness). [Wax Wane]

Loose Ties: Esquire profiles Massimo Piombo and also offers four ways to wear his suiting—three of which require a large scarf draped loosely around your neck. [Esquire]

Trust the internet to take something beautiful and turn it into something slightly uncomfortable.

Take this young woman, for instance. She seems like she’s having a good time. She’s smiling, after all. Sure, her legs are crossed, but she doesn’t seem in distress. Certainly not like she’s looking for a bathroom or anything…

Unfortunately, after Hipsters Have to Pee, everything is suspect.

No sooner do we complement Kanye’s taste in denim than we hear his Yeeziness is planning a denim line of his very own.

It’ll be hard to top RRL, and the hipster/street divide is as difficult to bridge in fashion as it is in music. Then again, if anyone can bring the two camps together—possibly by sporting the perfect level of bagginess displayed in the picture at left—it’s Kanye. As legacies go, it wouldn’t be a bad one.

Let’s just hope it keeps him off the vocoder.

Belly Up to the Bar: Thank ??? someone out there is poking around Russian Elle for Bar Refaeli shots. [Goldenfiddle]

Casual Friday: We're a little surprised that this internal memo from Interview on office dress code was even necessary. We could guess that this has something to do with the magazine's new Capo di tutti capi, Glenn O'Brien—but then again, the guy doesn't always hew to the rule himself. [Gawker]

Spice on Set: Failing fashion designer Victoria Beckham teams up with failing movie mogul Tom Cruise for what will almost certainly be Ben Stiller's ugliest film since "Meet the Fockers". [FemaleFirst UK]
