Good Deeds

While cultivating mustaches for a good cause during the recently concluded month of Movember, our brave colleagues here at Nordstrom HQ may not have achieved a full Dali, Selleck or Hogan—but we’d say they put in a solid Kirk Hammett or two, and a definitive Young Colonel Sanders.

Keep reading to see final, pre-shave shots of a few of our participating Mo Bros—and read their tips for growing a mustache of your own next Movember (if not sooner; these things tend to grow on you, so to speak).

Having reached the mid-point of Movember—the month during which men all over the world grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for important men’s health issues—we thought we’d offer some ‘stache-strengthening inspiration from a pro-grower, comedian Nick Offerman, above. So hang in there, gentlemen—and keep on cultivating, even in the face of humble stubble patterns.

Read on to see how some of our colleagues here at Nordstrom HQ are doing their part this Movember.

Celebrating 10 years raising funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS- and LGBTQ-related causes, Jeffrey Fashion Cares held its annual runway show and silent auction in NYC Tuesday night.

The evening brought out supportive celebs, the industry’s most in-demand models, and killer clothes from some of our favorite menswear designers—and most importantly, raised over $800,000 for an amazing cause. Jeffrey Kalinsky (the event’s founder as well as Nordstrom’s EVP of women’s designer—he’s pictured above in a pale-blue button-down and tie) had this to say: “I live for the day when there will be a cure for AIDS and equality for every man and woman in this country. Tonight is about gay rights, and in a greater context, human rights.”

Congrats to Jeffrey and everyone involved, and here’s to breaking a million at Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2014. Scroll down for a look backstage and on the runway—and pop over to our women’s blog, The Thread, for more.

Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless (as well as an enthusiast of opera and hotdogs), hosted the event.

Model Tip #1: Barring the opera and the Oscars, a leather jacket and T-shirt are usually all you need for a night out.

Model Tip #2: Lounge around in Lanvin and Valentino like it ain’t no thing (left).
Model Tip #3: Grow hair like this guy (right—easier said than done).

Model Tip #4: Rad eyebrows are a sign of virility. Thou shalt not tweeze.

The Lineup. Highlights included Jil Sander, Burberry, Dries Van Noten, and Givenchy.

Runway finale. Get psyched for bold colors and camo for spring/summer ’13.

Yes, that’s snow—and no, that guy’s not wearing pants. It’s a good thing Pact socks are plenty warm.

It’s also a good thing they look great with jeans, khakis, and definitely boots—so stock up (save $3 on each pair of Pact socks when you buy 3 or more) and wear them all winter long.

The best thing of all, though? Every purchase from Pact’s holiday collection helps The Empowerment Plan provide jobs to homeless women in Detroit. According to Jeff from the Pact team, “It’s an incredible little organization that makes sleeping coats for the homeless. With money raised from our collection, Pact is buying The Empowerment Plan new, industrial sewing machines, so that they can hire more women and make more coats.”

Altruistic through and through, the fine people at Pact even shot their holiday lookbook (including the brave, pantsless gentleman above) at a location they wanted to shine a light on: The Heidelberg Project, a public art environment in Detroit. Learn more about it in the video below, and SHOP PACT UNDERWEAR & SOCKS.
