  • Kempt Staff

Ted Baker wants to send you to London.

And all the Brit-based label wants in return is for you to check out the autumn/winter 2012 collection at Ted’s Grand House, the new ’20s-London-style trilevel mecca of impeccably cut shirts and chunky knitwear they opened yesterday on Fifth Avenue.

They’ll have an Instagram photo booth, prizes and Ted’s butlers serving you high tea. If you want to follow them on Facebook and Twitter, too: that’d be aces. It’s how you’ll keep abreast of any other vital afternoon-tea-and-shirting developments.

Sailors, Silhouettes and Humanitarian Crises


It's The Perfect Time For... April77's Spring/Summer collection. [Hypebeast]

Dress to Suppress: Amidst what appears to be a total collapse of democracy, journalistic independence and human rights, some intrepid fashion writer actually managed to file this story on style and the derailed Zimbabwean presidential campaign. Who needs freedom of the press anyway? [All Africa]

Bulletproof Bonnet: Perhaps a more useful mode of dress for scared Zimbabweans, this cutting-edge, street-thug tech hoodie can stop a 9mm round. [BBC]

Ships Ahoy: A naval salute to Chambray. [A Continuous Lean]

Get Fit: A little primer on silhouette theory. [Permanent Style]

Go Green:Take a peek at Timo Weiland's bio-friendly billfolds. [Refinery29]

Off The Cuff: Pop quiz, hotshot. Your brand-new slacks haven't been to the tailor yet and you've got 15 minutes to meet your people at the bar. What do you do? What do you do? [Esquire]

Little Gold Men and Aliens in Your Drawers


Leading Man: Sure, Daniel Day-Plainview may have drunk George Clooney's milkshake last night, but with his shawl-collar tux and styled arm candy, Dr. Ross walked away with our award. [Observer]

Fit to Be Tied: Speaking of the Oscars, a few attendees, including Scientology's unofficial co-pilot Ms. John Travolta, can't manage a bow on their own. For shame. [Manolo for Men]

Sparkle, Sparkle: Dear Diablo Cody, remember that those snarky, insipid style critics have a job to do and tearing you apart is just part of it. It's nothing personal. As far as we're concerned, you'll always be the second or third hottest former stripper to win for best script. [Beauty Fashion Life]

Hand Me Down: Adrian Grenier says vintage style is good for Mother Earth. Damned hippie. [Hoopla]

Watch out for Klingons: Ted Baker goes zoom! zap! bleep! bleep! in your underwear. [Retro to Go]

The White Pages: Social injustice, the class system and America's yawning racial divide arrived bundled with P.C. Richards circulars this Sunday. [PSFK]
