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 four of four.
“For a casual but professional look–aka business casual–try an untucked button-up shirt with jeans and a fitted sport coat. Make sure the shirt is shorter than your jacket. We didn’t do it for this photo, but if it’s cold enough, consider the sport coat a middle layer and finish the outfit with a tailored overcoat in a classic navy, camel or black.”

“Lots of guys look the same. It helps to look a little different. No hate to sport coats, which can definitely set a cool tone. But if you’re feeling spicy, for your next night out remix your outfit. Replace your sport coat with a bomber jacket and layer over a button-up.”

“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.”

For being out in the elements:
Try a combination of textures with a subtle print while staying in a subdued color palette. In this case a rubbery jacket, chunky sweater and plaid shirt offer a diversity of feels while being tied together by colors you would find in a forest.
Perhaps, like the rest of us, you recently binge-watched Aziz Ansari’s series Master of None on Netflix. If so, maybe you noticed that beyond all its jokes, drama and frank dialogue about dating and race in America, this is also a show about style.
In particular, you can view it as a guide for how to dress unembarrassingly as a city-dwelling person entering one’s 30s. That’s due to the careful work of costume designer Dana Covarrubias.
We spoke with Covarrubias on the phone about the individual styles of the buddy crew at the center of Master of None: Dev (Aziz Ansari), Arnold (Eric Wareheim), Denise (Lena Waithe) and Brian (Kelvin Yu).
Also: how to reconsider your style as you turn the big three-O.
The predominant male attitude on grooming and skincare is that they are optional. At least that’s what we hear from president of Kiehl’s and noted beard-wearer Chris Salgardo.
But imagine if Rob Lowe thought that way. There would be no Rob Lowe.
So in the interest of correcting this gross misunderstanding, Salgardo wrote Manmade, a book with grooming and skincare tips men can and should use right now–and which will keep them looking younger, longer. Perhaps you know a man who could use this in his life?
Salgardo told us all about the book on the phone. The conversation is below.
And if you happen to be in/near Seattle on December 11, meet up with Salgardo in our flagship store to talk about his book and knock back a cold one. The event is called, tantalizingly, Beards and Brew.
Our Classic Clam Chowder is actually quick and easy to pull together. This recipe–from our Family Table Cookbook and restaurants–is just the right thickness and isn’t stingy on the clams. All it takes is a bit of dicing, sautéingand gentle simmering, and about 45 minutes.
Itchy sweaters can be cool, but once you step into the golden fleece of the cashmere goat, you’re always going to need that softness in your life. As for what to wear with a cashmere sweater?

Two of our own facial-hair enthusiasts share their grooming tips and picks to keep your ‘stache from veering into unwieldy territory.
Since 2003, the Movember Foundation has been deploying state-of-the-art mustaches as conversation starters to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. The movement challenges participants to grow, share and get active. But to be inducted as a Mo Bro (or a Mo Sista supporting all her Mo Bros) requires following a few rules and knowing a thing or two about facial-hair care.
We enlisted a couple of our grooming gurus to help with rules: Gerald Grinter, counter manager for men’s fragrance in Seattle, and Sankil Ward, men’s accessories and furnishings manager at the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego.
Those rules are 1) start clean-shaven, 2) grow and groom for the entire month so you can reach your full mustachioed potential without breaking rule 3) no fakes, no beards, no goatees.
Gerald and Sankil will be sporting their own mustaches this month, along with members of their teams.
Here’s what you need to know and the products Gerald and Sankil swear by.
