Since this is the most brutal winter the East Coast has seen in decades, we have winter coats on the brain. We’ve basically been living in them nonstop, and are so SICK of our regular ones, that we all can’t stop looking for new ones. My husband thinks he has found The One–the Fjallraven Pak […]

I recently had the very good fortune to travel to New York City for the annual James Beard Foundation’s award ceremony. In my industry, it is the penultimate recognition, something often referred to as “the Oscars of the food world.” Secretly, I prefer to think of the Oscars as “the James Beard awards of the […]


There has been a fair amount of press around the new directions JC Penney has been taking under the leadership of Ron Johnson (of Apple and Target fame). I was a bit surprised when I heard Nick Wooster (men’s fashion world street style icon ) had made the move from stints at Neiman’s and Park […]


We have always had a hard time with that hipster dad trying to recapture his youth with a skateboard and the t-shirt over the waffle long sleeve tee. We love Matt Hranek‘s decidedly 40-something layering of textures–a Japanese hipster, English gentlemen, Brooklyn dad medley that isn’t trying too hard. He looks casual and dressed all […]

andy spade

He’s a man with a great eye–an uber-creative who does everything from branding to publishing in his role as the co-founder of Partners & Spade, and was the founder of Jack Spade, and co-founder of Kate Spade. We asked him to tell us how he’s spending his day: How does Father’s Day ideally unfold for […]


Glenn O’Brien’s bio is an impressive and lengthy one. He’s a writer, editor, and creative director, and has contributed to pretty much every magazine that counts (Interview, Rolling Stone, Vogue, and Esquire to name a few). Glenn has had a TV show, produced music and made movies. I read his GQ column “The Style Guy” faithfully each […]

gum cufflinks

I ran into my friend Bill at a deli in the West Village and immediately noticed his cool gold cufflinks, which looked like pieces of molded clay. But what they actually were was chewing gum that his kids had chewed, and his wife, designer Cynthia Rowley, took out of their mouths and cast in gold. […]

Last week, Jenny went away for three days to work on her book. I don’t know if anyone else out there finds this to be true, but we have this theory about parenting being easier — not better, mind you, just easier — when the spouse is away. The chain of command is clearer. Movements are […]

dewey nicks momfilter 1

I’ve spent a lot of time with Dewey over the years. He always seemed to follow the Neverland dream (Peter’s, not Michael’s) of never growing up. And the way I see it, that’s the perfect philosophy for fatherhood. Dewey is fun, patient, and spontaneous. He has great style and knows his way around a Broadway […]

Lee Norwood

Lee is the head of the men’s design team at Rugby RL. He most definitely has great style, but more importantly, he’s a great dad. How do you celebrate Father’s Day? Road trip!  We haven’t decided the destination this year.  Last year it was the Adirondacks, but with the newborn, probably a trip up to Mohonk […]

pocket opener

I will make a confession here: I look forward to a Father’s Day gift. I know the reality is that it’s really from my wife, not my child—and I know she has a lot on her plate, and finding a gift can be a big pain in the ass. Especially a gift for me. But even […]
