Running shorts

Now that athletic gear is finally getting the #menswear treatment, you’d think it’d be easier to find a handsome pair of running shorts.

But for whatever reason, the focus has been mostly on sweatpants (we’ll let you come to your own conclusions about how the sort of athletic prowess required to reblog things on Tumblr plays into that equation). Fortunately, for the active few of you in search of a good pair of running shorts that skew more Bastian than basketball, we’ve rounded up the best on the market right now.

Event Recap: Details x CFDA Weekender Collection Launch

  • Caitlin Ganswindt

Details x CFDA

Continuing their week of revelry, last night the CFDA partied penthouse-style alongside Details for the launch of their second collaboration, the Weekender Collection.

Fashion folk took to the rooftop of the Mondrian SoHo, imbibing spirits from Japan’s Suntory whiskey distillery to celebrate the event. For their second project together (following last fall’s pocket square capsule), they tapped talent from 20 top menswear designers, asking each to reimagine the classic weekender duffel bag. And reimagine they did.

A hand-painted portrait of a WWII pinup girl donning Gilded Age’s bodice, leather handles and gold-pointed studs lining the straps of Simon Spurr’s, and a lesson in schizophrenic splatter painting by way of Yigal Azrouël, to name a few.

They’re each one of a kind, and will be up for grabs on eBay starting June 10 through 17.
