Planning ahead is no small feat. Paying bills, showing up to your dentist appointment, having a dinner reservation locked and loaded when your wedding anniversary rolls around—we find these side effects of modern life counterintuitive to man’s most basic instinct, i.e., to kick back with a cold one and live in the now.

Luckily, our annual Anniversary Sale makes getting ahead of the game second nature. Fact: Besides being our best sale event of the year, Anniversary is also a fall preview. We give you a chance to score leather jackets, work boots, dark denim, and everything else you’ll need for cool weather at reduced prices NOW, in the middle of summer, before they ever hit the floor at full price.

You can thank us later. For now, keep reading to see the Anniversary items that caught our eye while roaming our flagship store on opening day.

Hip-hop maestro, talented photographer, and Men’s Shop Daily guest editor Thig Nat (short for “Natural”) recently offered us a glimpse into a music/art/charity event that he helped organize and host.

Keep reading for stellar photos from the night’s proceedings (which included a performance by Thig’s longtime friend and colleague Macklemore) and to see how Mr. Nat struck an ideal balance between decked-out and laid-back.

Few things call to mind the fleeting nature of summer quite like the sudden arrival of fall designer collections. Yesterday, the weather officially turned warm here at our Seattle HQ; today, we’re staring down buffalo plaid shirts, Fair Isle sweaters and leather jackets from brands like The Kooples.

The Paris-based label tapped Grammy-winning directors Fred&Nick to set the tone for the coming season. The resulting short film, titled Today, Tonight, is inspired by London’s fabled Ace Cafe—a 24-hour hole-in-the-wall where rival motorcyclists in the 1950s and ’60s congregated to fight over girls, hear jukebox tunes that radio stations wouldn’t play, swill tea with milk and sugar, and settle disputes on the road in 100-mph races.

Check out the teaser clip above, then keep reading to watch the full-length version, update your Fall wardrobe for day and night—and see how The Kooples can help you find your soul mate.

Now, in addition to carrying out said activities in stripes, spots, floral, Fair Islecamo, tie-dye, leopard and 4th of July-appropriate red, white and blue, you can also don the photographic likenesses of your favorite NBA legends—on your feet.
