A Good Reid: Hypebeast sits down with Southern gent Billy Reid. He thinks his men’s line should date his women’s. Something like that. [Hypebeast]

Packing Height: According to a recent study, holding a gun gives one the appearance of being taller. Duly noted. [The Atlantic]

About That Trip to Italy: First, you’ll want to read these pointers on DSLR travel photography. The Neapolitan shoulders will look all the better for it. [Lonely Planet]

Scary Stylish: Valet uses the movie Jaws as a case study for your summer of nautical style. Notice the lack of swimsuits. [Valet]

Heroes & Villains


40 years in, James Bond is less of a character than a rotating stable of brands. Sony Ericsson, Smirnoff, and Aston Martin are all part of the current package, but what about the villains? While Bond is off winding his Omega, the Goldfingers of the world have to make do with Swatches.

Nicolas Hayek, founder and head of the Swatch group, has decided to cash in on the semi-cachet of the Bond villain with the 007 Villain Collection. The line follows villains from *Goldfinger* to *Casino Royale*, outfitting the most stylish with a watch just slightly less expensive than Bond’s own.

We’re usually partial to product endorsements from imaginary characters, but we’re still on the fence with this one. Is there anyone out there trying to dress like Jaws?
