G-Star Raw

Pharrell Williams wears a lot of hats, so to speak. From zeitgeist-dominating Daft Punk cameos last summer to that controversial Robin Thicke vid to his day-long buzz clip for globally chart-topping single ‘Happy’, you’ve no doubt heard a lot about him lately. Far from an overnight success, Pharrell’s illustrious (verging on insane) résumé as a producer bears repeating; he’s had a hand in hundreds of hits, ranging from Britney Spears to Busta Rhymes to your favorite under-the-radar Watch the Throne track.

Also deserving an honorable mention is his environmental work with Bionic Yarn, an innovative company devoted to upcycling ocean plastic. To kick off a new collaboration with G-Star Raw—a collection of eco-friendly streetwear called RAW for the Oceans—we caught up with Shubhankar Ray of G-Star and Tim Coombs of Bionic.

Keep reading to hear about the intersection of art and science, the importance of the ocean, and what it’s like to collab with Pharrell.

From dark and raw to bleached and faded, we can all agree that a great-fitting pair of jeans is a menswear essential that will never go out of style. With more new and unique denim brands entering our Men’s Shop lineup than ever before, we asked our buying team to name a few whose stories (and, of course, jeans) they thought you, our valued reader, would like to know. Keep reading for the low-down on eight cutting-edge denim brands—from zany Canadian start-ups to 125-year-old American icons.

A couple weeks ago, we introduced our Fall Boot Guide  with examples of the tough-but-refined Wingtip Boot.

Today, we’d like to focus on a class of Rugged Boots that fully embraces masculine military and workwear influences—but still can (and should) be worn in a dressy way.

Just look at how handsomely they anchor a plaid tie and tweed vest in the images above. Add a bleached-out jean jacket and you’re ready for anything, from drinks with the guys to lunch with a new client. It’s called contrast, sirs—and it’s the key to a cool outfit.

Here are 6 of our favorite Rugged Boots (in addition to the Frye ‘Logger’ Boot above)—but be sure to shop our full selection here.

Rugged Boots (Top, L-R): Rag & Bone | Dsquared2 | G-Star Raw
(Bottom, L-R): Sorel | UGG Australia | Moncler
