You know him from throwing the pigskin on TV, where he is simply one of the most electrifying quarterbacks to ever play the game. You know him also, perhaps, from his red carpet outings with the pop music star Ciara.

But did you know Russell Wilson is into fashion? Not only because he’s well-dressed but also because he has cofounded Good Man Brand, a collection of modern essentials made in Italy for guys who need to level up their style game.

During a public appearance at our Seattle flagship store, Wilson spoke with our own Pete Nordstrom about the philanthropic angle of his business, his perception of himself as a man dating up and the origin of Good Man Brand.

These days we’re catching on to new ideas about how to wear track pants, styling them with the same versatility we afford denim. The new logic: track pants go with everything.

Our main man Skylar Bergl breaks it down over at Complex with a little help from A$AP Nast.

If you’re a person who is alive, chances are you’ll be tuning into Superbowl 50 on Sunday, February 7, to watch Cam Newton and the Panthers take on Peyton Manning’s Bronco squad.

Where will you go in 2016? Perhaps after reading this blog post, you’ll consider a trip to Bondi (bond-eye) Beach in Sydney, Australia.

It’s definitely on our list after chatting with photographer Colin Tunstall—also the cofounder of the surf-inspired, casually luxurious brand Saturdays NYC.

Read our interview below with Colin about his recent Australian vacay/store opening with Saturdays cofounders Morgan Collett and Josh Rosen, and scope his photos of majestic yoga poses, killer karaoke and perfect waves.

How to Layer for Winter: Ballin’

How to layer for winter? Good question, because more clothes = more decisions. For inspiration and guidance, we asked Senior Stylist Jodi Taylor to dress model musician Ryan Neighbors and give us a note on her thought process. This is outfit two of four.



“Try monochromatic layering for street style sportswear. In this outfit a turtleneck and training tights add dimension and balanced proportion to your basic shorts and jacket. The tights are a visible extra layer under the shorts; the turtleneck is an extra layer under the jacket. The whole outfit is grayscale.”

What’s in a name? Sometimes, a lot—at least as far as we can tell when it comes to Arc’teryx-sponsored athlete Roger Strong. We caught up with the professional outdoorsman as he drove down to this year’s Pacific Crest Trail Days hoopla (before jetting off to France for a global Arc’teryx meeting—ah, the good life) to chat about his go-to pistes, favorite Arc’teryx gear and, yes, getting caught in an avalanche.

In honor of the exclusive his-and-hers Beta LT Jackets that we’re carrying at Pop-In@Nordstrom New Classics, our buds over at Arc’teryx put us in touch with Strong, an avid climber (and skier and fisherman and kiteboarder…) who’s been a sponsored athlete for 15 years and living the vertical life since his childhood in the wilderness goldmine of Denver.

Did this duo from our 1976 activewear catalog stop at matching suits? No, they followed through with turtlenecks and accessories. Even the handlebar tape on homegirl’s bike matches their rainbow arm bands.

Because fall is about enjoying the transitional weather, for outdoor jaunts–and for aggressively coordinating your outfit with your partner.

seattleseahawksBecause you want to rep your squad before the game but unlike at your bro’s tech job–where everyone wears t-shirts and sits on yoga balls all day–your office dress code is business casual.

That’s why Vineyard Vines’ NFL ties are on point.

But you know what? It’s not just about the external pressure to look good. Contrary to popular belief not all football fans are schlubby.

Some of us, as much as we love the no-cares-given fashion sense of Bill Belichik–and sincerely, we do–like to look crispy and clean while supporting our team.

How to Dress Like N.W.A

With Straight Outta Compton currently in theaters, we thought you might want to know how to dress like N.W.A—the legendary Los Angeles rap group at the center of this Hollywood blockbuster.howtodresslikenwaStyle notes: black and white everything. T-shirt slightly longer than the bomber jacket. Any Los Angeles sports gear is a bonus.

And if you’re trying to rep N.W.A around the office, we humbly suggest Raiders cufflinks.
