The Longhairs

On the heels of Fashion Week, Daily Intel has spotted an interesting trend: models with shoulder-length hair, even at shows for otherwise classic brands like Steven Alan and Tommy Hilfiger.

Intel’s got a bunch of theories, including the down economy and the decline of the clean-cut banker—and Don Draper types—but we know Italian style when we see it, and we’re going to call this as one more example of Continental Drift.

Days of Fondue


If we had to guess the year this gentleman was striding boldly into, we'd probably place it somewhere in the hazy era of the late 70s. Something about the feathery hair, the billowing pocket square and the cableknit-corduroy combo makes it seem like he's probably humming an Abba song.

But as it turns out, it's all coming back to the present tense. (That includes Abba.) In fact, this gentleman is part of Tommy HIlfiger's Fall/Winter offering for 2010, red pants and all. It's a pretty striking wardrobe, and we're excited to see if this takes off—if only because our years spent stockpiling blazers might finally pay some dividends. We're not sure about the turtleneck sweaters...but you can't have everything.

Grate Shoes, Great Retail & Bar Refaeli


Raising The Bar: Bar Refaeli taps Tommy Hilfiger to launch a new television project. Funny, we can’t even notice him in half the photos. [InStyle]

The High Low: Our pal Mordechai Rubinstein finds one of NYC’s most tred-upon icons resting gently on the toe of luxury. [Men’s Vogue]

Draper’s Exclusive Club: As if we need another excuse to plug Mad Men, the crazy cats at Canadian Club (a fellow publication astutely points out this Don Draper fave) ring in their 150th birthday with a special vintage. [Men.Style]

Rogue Agent: The saga continues with an expanded collection, retails space and inspiration for Maine’s main men’s attraction, Rogues Gallery [Time]

Kemptress: Bar Refaeli

  • Jared Paul Stern


What has Leo DiCaprio got that you haven't? Well, Bar Refaeli for one, the startlingly stacked Israeli model he's been keeping company with for the past couple years.

Considering the stilettos she's stepping into here - Leo's ex is if course The Gisele - Bar looks like beating the odds. She was the first Israeli chick to be admitted into the ranks of *Sports Illustrated*'s Swimsuit Issue sirens and was recently named Best Body of 2008 by *Arena* magazine. To top it off she was just picked as the new face (and such) of Hurley, the Californian surf and skate company with a cult-like following.

The ads (above) will debut in the fall, when she'll also be appearing in Tommy Hilfiger's *Iconic America* TV special.

We'll let you make your own “Bar none” joke.

Kempt Man of the Hour: Moby

  • Jared Paul Stern


*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*

We've never been huge fans of Moby's music, but we have to admit we like his style. For a little bald guy with glasses he does himself pretty well. Sartorially he may not be much to write home about, but he manages to exude the right kind of insouciant electro-rock star cool in a way that's essentially inimitable: just you try walking around like this and see how far you get if you don't believe us.
