You can talk Star Wars and Scarface for days—but are you fluent in French New Wave? For a primer on the genre that will score you more conversation points with girls (or guys) who wear glasses, check out our previous post on the topic—and to rep your favorite Jean-Luc Godard film wherever you go, pick up the Vivre Sa Vie snapback seen above.

It’s one of three custom New Era hats brought in exclusively for our French Fling Pop-In Shop. The title of the 1962 film translates directly as To Live Her Life, but it was released to American audiences as My Life to Live—an aptly self-assured headwear sentiment whether you’re lightening the vibe at a cheese tasting or out-classing your friends in a game of pick-up basketball.

We’ll gloss over the seedy details of the film’s plot line (no spoilers!), but do check out the classic jukebox scene in the clip above—and keep watching until the end, for a pick-up line that would never work in a million years. Unless, maybe, you’re French. Or wearing a great hat. But still, we don’t recommend it.

MEN’S HATS 

In important sports news, our guy Russell Wilson made the pages of GQ. The star quarterback of our home team, the Seattle Seahawks, overcame crazy odds last season (he was a third-round pick) to tie the record for most passing touchdowns by a rookie, throw for three TDs in the Pro Bowl, lead his underdog team on a valiant playoff run, and be named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year. Seriously though…GQ!

Oh, and Wilson also made the cover of ESPN magazine this month. (Read the article about coach Pete Carroll’s new-wave school of hard knocks here. Hint: It involves more yoga and less yelling. How Seattle.)

Not to brag, but people are even predicting Seahawks for a Super Bowl win. First things first, though: We’ll be tuned to CBS tonight at 8pm ET, to watch the ‘Hawks take on Green Bay (in a preseason grudge match sure to pick up where last season’s substitute-ref debacle left off).

Which team are you pulling for? Check the full schedule here, and pick up some new gear to show your allegiance. Our current favorites are these understated fitted caps, in a wind-stopping wool blend ideal for frigid bleachers (or your living room).

With baseball season now in full swing, we have a vast selection of MLB snapbacks to choose from. We’re fans of these black-on-black numbers, and these Japanese-inscribed guys have their charm, but our current MVP in the headgear department is the American Needle 400 Series—which takes archival cues from the last 100 years of America’s favorite pastime. Here are a few highlights; click any image to shop the full collection:


New York Yankees, 1922  •  Chicago Cubs, 1908 Road Uniform  •  Pittsburgh Pirates, 1949


LA Dodgers, 1958  •  San Francisco Giants, 1972  •  Philadelphia Phillies, 1980


Chicago White Sox, 1931  •  Boston Red Sox, 1975  •  Seattle Mariners, 1977

 

Beer. Hotdogs. Hats. If, somehow, you still need reasons to get fired up for baseball season, here are a few of our favorite moments in the sport’s storied history:

GQ Selects: November Look #1

Our newest edition of GQ Selects is live as of this morning. First up: a deceptively simple kit that proves, while a perfect shirt is an important starting point, it’s accessories that make the man—even when they’re as cost-effective as a $15 tie bar. GQ Creative Director Jim Moore explains:

 


Gant Rugger Knit Cap. “This knit hat from Gant Rugger takes inspiration from the watch caps worn by fishermen and dockworkers and renders it in the meanest color of the season: mustard. For guys who are wary of the bold hue, it’s best to start with a single piece like this.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

Band of Outsiders Plaid Oxford Woven Shirt. “Scott Sternberg has created the ideal button-down for modern guys. It’s a classic style, but he’s played with the proportions, shrinking them to hug the body and shortening the length so it looks good untucked. This neutral brown-and-grey plaid is the perfect starter shirt for the guy who wants to get some pattern into his closet, but is apprehensive about jumping into the deep end.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

The Tie Bar Matte-Eggplant Tie Bar. “We’ve long been advocating the tie bar as a must-have finishing touch for guys. While the classic options are polished silver or gold, a new breed of colors and finishes offer a breath of fresh air, like a deep burgundy hue in a matte finish. It adds a small dose of color—and a big shot of visual variation—to your basic shirt-and-tie combinations.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

Timex ‘Easy Reader’ Leather Strap Watch. “Grey is the watch color of the season. What’s great about the trend is that you can get one at any price, like this Timex® [$65]. A rugged suede strap balances out the minimalist details, like the pared-down gunmetal-plated case and the tonal face, while the sleek profile gives it a contemporary look that’s wearable seven days a week.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
