Just Madonna Being Madonna
Today’s must-reads from around the Internet.
The dubious new “avant-bland” fashion trend, the guys behind CFDA nominated label Simon Miller, why everyone on the internet does Venn diagrams wrong and… »
Yesterday, the preternaturally salt-and-peppered man of style, filmmaker, activist and Brad Pitt bromanceur—not to mention Kempt 100 inductee—the one and only George Clooney stopped by Reddit for an impromptu AMA. Naturally, he had plenty of bons mots and wisdom to dispense on everything from his newfound cobbling hobby to the nipples on his Batman suit (seriously).
So we pulled out his five most interesting lines, presented here without comment, after the jump...»
Man of style—and Kempt 100 inductee—Andy Warhol was on to something when he founded Interview magazine in 1969...
And we can only imagine that the latest issue’s cover interview of Kanye West, by 12 Years A Slave Director Steve McQueen, was exactly what Warhol had in mind. It’s lofty, insightful, absurd (in both its artistic meaning and the usual one) and chock-full of great thought-bites from the inimitable Mr. West.
It was tough, but we managed to distill it down to the five most interesting lines...»
With The Wolverine hitting theaters this weekend, Hugh Jackman has been doing the press rounds. And he’s been doing so while magnificently well-coifed.
In other words: not looking a thing like the terrifyingly hirsute beast he plays in the movie.
But Hugh doesn’t just roll out of bed looking that good—the man behind turning Wolverine back into a normal-looking person is a guy who goes by “The Men’s Groomer,” Jason Schneidman. We caught up with Jason, who’s working with Dove Men+ Care, to talk beard maintenance, re-handsome-ing up Hugh Jackman, how to get the JFK cut and more.
Jason Schneidman on the perils of grooming Wolverine, turning Rob Lowe into JFK and Abe Lincoln’s terrible chinstrap.»
Our comrades-in-style over at UrbanDaddy tipped us off to today’s launch of Jardine, the brand-new menswear label helmed by Nathan Bogle—he cofounded a little brand you may have heard of, by the name of Rag & Bone (yes, the CFDA-lauded label started with a couple of guys endeavoring to make a great pair of jeans). Jardine Spring 2013 will be Bogle’s first collection since leaving the label, and luckily, we got to catch up with him to hear the story, get the lowdown on his new line and let him sound off on the post-metrosexual state of menswear.

It’s football season. So we thought it might be a good time to talk on the phone with John Elway. The HOF Broncos QB is currently working with Dove Men+Care on their really well-executed Journey to Comfort campaign.
And he took a minute to share some thoughts on NFL style, his nonexistent (he swears) Baltimore vendetta and a little law that just passed in Colorado.»
Actor. Brat Packer. Lover of mannequins. And these days... travel writer. Andrew McCarthy’s second act has taken him to such far-flung places as Kilimanjaro, Bhutan and... San Francisco, where we (and our brothers at UrbanDaddy San Francisco) caught up with him on tour for his new book, The Longest Way Home.
Naturally, we asked him about sweatpants, his former costars and his favorite international drinking ritual...»
Karl Urban: New Zealand born. Lord of the Rings alum. Pretend doctor (see: Star Trek). And now, dystopian-future street regulator as Judge Dredd, opening nationwide today.
We sat down with him in a former prison (and now a posh hotel) in Boston to discuss suit preferences, beards and how not to woo a Kiwi woman.»
