Swedish-born designer Johan Lindeberg took a bonafide life crisis that would send lesser men into a rock-bottom bender, absorbed its impact, and redirected its power into something positive: He founded BLK DNM, a clothing brand with New York City in its veins and dirt under its nails that, being the culmination of Lindeberg’s years of industry experience, feels like a time-tested authority for best-in-class leather jackets, despite its mere four years on Earth.

Keep reading to hear how he did it, how he bled in a castle, how he’s anti-punk, how jeans are like wine, and why he’s a fan of Hillary Clinton.

(Did we mention he also started taking photos only four years ago, and now spends his spare time photographing women like Gisele Bündchen, Kenza Fourati, Anja Rubik and Arizona Muse? Click through to see our favorites from Lindeberg’s rapidly growing photo oeuvre, too.)

Way back in 1875, Arthur Liberty, the original founder of the eponymous U.K. department store (the flagship is still there on London’s Regent Street, in the West End) pioneered a collection of iconic prints influenced by his dealings with Oriental imports. By the 1920s, the miniature floral and abstract prints produced by the Liberty brand took on an Art Deco feel well-suited for the era, and later, 1960s bohemians paired the prints with corduroy and velvet for that opulent rock star vibe. Think: Jimi Hendrix in paisley and flares.

Fast-forward to now. Liberty Art Fabrics take center stage in Topman’s latest accessories collaboration, which is rolling out in stores and online as we speak. Hand-picked from Liberty’s extensive archives, these mostly abstract prints allow you to tie on or tuck in just the right spot of color and wit.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater achieves an unrivaled harmony between the man-made and the natural. Scholars believe Leonardo spent up to 14 years perfecting the enigmatic smile of the Mona Lisa. The seven-layer steel blades of Japanese swordsmith Masamune were rumored to slice, then heal, leaves floating past in a stream.

Incomparable materials and avant-garde details make our favorite designer sneakers works of art in their own right. Keep reading for a closer look at creations by Lanvin, Givenchy, Valentino, Balenciaga, Common Projects and Maison Martin Margiela.

As part of our fall 2014 Men’s Shop Catalog, we profiled 4 real men of style and substance. Here, award-winning menswear designer Billy Reid.

The best clothing designers approach their craft like a mix of art and science: part aesthetic sensibility, part structural engineering. Louisiana-born Billy Reid excels on both counts, offering meticulously crafted, tangibly soulful classics for men of all ages.

Beyond informing our aspirations of what to wear, Reid also serves as a solid role model for how to live. Keep reading for wise words from a man who finds time to coach baseball, sip bourbon and dig Bob Dylan, all while doing the best and most rewarding work of his career.

During his time in Seattle, Nathan Quiroga has made some noise, left some marks, hung a gold record on his wall, and changed his life top to bottom in order to hit the ambitious goals he set for himself.

As he prepares to make another drastic change, uprooting his life (and his current band, a melodic, meditative, ’60s psychedelia-tinged power duo called Iska Dhaaf) in order to take a leap of faith in New York City, we caught up with the songwriter / stage-climber / rapper / author / multi-instrumentalist for a Q&A in his Seattle apartment—which had already begun to fill up with moving boxes.

Keep reading for some wise words about hard work, being yourself, and the dedication it takes to follow your instincts (whether it makes practical sense to do so or not).

These visually striking and subliminally comedic portraits (seriously, when’s the last time you saw Jerry Seinfeld mug this meanly?), commissioned by New York brand rag & bone, came across our desk a few weeks ago. But today—with the launch of our latest limited-time, Olivia Kim-curated shop, Pop-In@Nordstrom x rag & bone—seemed like an ideal time to call them to your attention.

Keep reading to see more of this series by talented English photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath (a former avid skateboarder and punk band bass player who has since shot for high-profile publications like Vogue, Wired and Rolling Stone). The impressive body of work includes GQ’s deftly sardonic “Style Guy” Glenn O’Brien, NBA badass Carmelo Anthony, and many more men and women of all ages—a testament to the universal appeal of rag & bone’s modern-meets-heritage menswear.
