What to Wear

The brand Pintrill, out of Brooklyn, NY, answers the question: What if you took the collectible world of pin culture, and speared it through your phone and into your text messages?

Jordan Roschwalb started Pintrill in April 2014 with his girlfriend Doni Gitlin and homie Andrew Yung. He talked to us on the phone about the communal power of pins and future possibilities for the Oxford English Dictionary.

After speaking with him, we’re even more certain that these pins will get you noticed at a music festival or on the street. And maybe bartered with.

Sound the alarm: New colors of the adidas ‘Tubular’ lifestyle shoe are shop-able. That would be the sensational sneaker that the brand debuted in 2014 and caught on like the flu, and only gets sicker with each new colorway (that black/surf petrol/off white, though?).

From Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade to rapper Kendrick Lamar to our friends at Street Etiquette, men everywhere are sporting the crucial evolution in trousers known as jogger pants. And it’s easy to understand why.

Besides being abnormally comfortable (many have elastic at the waist as well as the cuffs), they cut a lean, tapered silhouette that shows off your favorite shoes, without pesky concerns about rolling or hemming your pant leg.

Keep reading to see three ways to wear them: on the weekend, at the office and for a date.

How To: Remix Your Suit

retro throwback 70s denim vintage

Once you consider styling options, there’s no pressure to be in wedding or job-interview mode each time you wear your super-clean HUGO BOSS suit–or whichever suit you may have selected from Nordstrom’s many spring styles. Switch your style up, and watch the compliments pile up.

To help you feel empowered to remix your suit, our in-house Studio N stylist Brenna Carlson created three looks and offered her wisdom:

Attention, all overhead-compartment-stuffing, gym-bag-throwing, clothes-rumpling men and those who love them: Did you see The New York Times wrote about the virtual unwrinkleability of the Todd Snyder White Label suitThat is, the Nordstrom-exclusive Todd Snyder White Label suit? For real, this is the easy choice for a suit for traveling during the holidays or just being on the move in general.

Relevant info from the article from the designer himself, with testimony from NYTimes writer Guy Trebay:

“It used to be that people put Lycra in travel suits so they held their shape,” Mr. Snyder explained with considerable distaste. “Now there are enough ways you can do it within the yarn, twisting it a little bit tighter–almost like loading a spring.”

The yarn woven to produce Mr. Snyder’s newly introduced $795 single-breasted travel suit is so peppy, he claimed, you can wad it up into a ball.

Rather than taking Mr. Snyder at his word, I stuffed the jacket into my gym bag and promptly forgot about it. Days later, I discovered it wedged between a pair of Stan Smiths and some gym shorts. I yanked it out, gave it a quick shake and some airing. Then I put it on and wore it to a business lunch.

There you have it!

Below, read Snyder’s comments from Nordstrom Men’s Shop creative director Andy Comer about Pinterest, architecture, sweatshirts and more.

The year was 1978, and in the Nordstrom catalog you could find photos of adidas athletic shoes to wear while serving straight aces and Nikes for getting your Prefontaine on. We still offer shoes that look pretty much the same–and in some cases literally the same–because some designs are classic.

Plaid: it’s as old as the hills. But today’s best applications of ages-old tartan patterns take that traditional country club madras and your grandfather’s Sansabelts and throw a handful of future at them. Urban bravehearts hoping to steer clear of geezerville should aim for flat fronts and slim, even slightly cropped legs. And it goes without saying (but we will just in case): pair solid tops with checks, please.
