Nordstrom has been pretty heavy into streetwear for a few years now, and we couldn’t be more excited about our head-to-toe Street League collection, just unleashed on the masses. It’s a spring thing, but we shot footage and photos for our website and catalog over the summer in Los Angeles.

Check out these behind-the-scenes snapshots by Dan Monick from that shoot, with individual hyperlinks. We think the images have a certain je ne sais quoi.

Britpop lives forever! Or at least it lives again, as the inspiration for our current Pop-In@Nordstrom, the recurring shop curated by Nordstrom Director of Creative Projects Olivia Kim. Topshop and Topman are the focus. Britpop is the official soundtrack.

While there’s a fine line between classic and played-out, some Britpop gems from the ’90s hold up exceptionally well, and even massively overplayed hits can be made new again if you switch up your context. To that end, we spoke with Topman Design Director Gordon Richardson while simultaneously watching the two most crucial music videos of Britpop: Pulp’s “Common People” and Blur’s “Parklife”–that’s Blur, the band currently reuniting after a 12-year hiatus.

This is the “Parklife” blog post.

Here is the “Common People” blog post.

Sort of.

Maybe it’s a party where a tuxedo is the move. Maybe it isn’t. You’ll know. Either way you’re going to look sharp and somebody’s going to kiss you. These ten items can’t hurt.

Fall Accessory: The Umbrella

Five guys who look great with an umbrella: George Clooney (as in The Good German above), Gene Kelly, David Beckham, Barack Obama, Justin Timberlake.

For some of us the umbrella is a necessary evil—one left all too often, unfortunately, in cabs, restaurants and cocktail bars. But in the right hands, an umbrella is also a thing of refinement.

Keep reading for our guide to pairing the foul-weather essential with jackets and accessories that’ll help you dial in a smart, practical look that’s right for you.

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.

After salivating over the sun, fun and fried dough infiltrating our Instagram feed during a colleague’s recent trip to Los Angeles, we had to ask him for some insights on traveling to Southern Cali in style. “I hadn’t been to L.A. before as an adult,” says Donovan Nguyen, a web designer at Nordstrom HQ. “There’s a huge difference between seeing a city with your parents at age 8 and seeing it now as a grown-up. It’s so much better.”

Keep reading for highlights from Donovan’s visually arresting L.A. photo journal, complete with tips on where to go and what to pack.

Hip-hop maestro, talented photographer, and Men’s Shop Daily guest editor Thig Nat (short for “Natural”) recently offered us a glimpse into a music/art/charity event that he helped organize and host. Being an after-hours event and taking place at a museum, this was one of those frequent yet potentially perplexing occasions when a tuxedo is too much and a T-shirt won’t cut it.

Keep reading for stellar photos from the night’s proceedings (which included a performance by Thig’s longtime friend and colleague Macklemore) and to see how Mr. Nat struck an ideal balance between decked-out and laid-back.

In case the invitations piling up under your refrigerator magnets (or—congratulations!—your own impending nuptials) weren’t enough, the photos pervading the internet in recent days of Kim and Kanye’s wedding have offered a more-than-sufficient reminder that summer wedding season is officially here.

Keep reading for 10 helpful hints on how to be a winning groom (getting the girl is not even half the battle)—from holding up your end of the planning process to properly outfitting the noble gents standing next to you.

You met him (mostly from the knee-down) in our Sneakers in Seattle video and corresponding Q&A. You might have caught his hip-hop group, The Physics, performing live on globally streaming public radio station KEXP. Your fiancée has probably even heard one of his tracks 1,000 times while analyzing the latest slo-mo wedding video craze.

His name is Thig Nat, and the “Nat” part of his name is short for “Natural”—a reference that applies to his abilities on a microphone as well as his innate knack for wearing classic, versatile clothes that look good without trying too hard.

Keep reading to see how Thig put a modern spin on three menswear staples that he selected from our store: a henley, a trench coat, and slip-on sneakers.
