I can't find any mention of it, but apparently the WSJ has started publishing a fashion magazine. I went to their website and found no magazine, but some interesting content nonetheless. I wish The Economist or even The New Yorker would take a stab at putting a style magazine out.
A little too New York Times to be truly original, but a step above the usual suspects. Here, Thom Browne speaks pure truth:
Sometimes it’s embarrassing when you see couples out and the girl has clearly taken so much time over her appearance and the guy just looks bad. And the girls don’t seem to mind! Men get lazy. It’s important for a guy to figure out what works for him and then stick with it. Most men can’t steer themselves when it comes to style. They need a female to guide them. That’s a fact.
Terms like intense but simple, young and transparent had to be translated into a scent.
Is fragrance copy just inherently shitty? "Intense but simple" isn't a term. They are three words that make no sense as a juxtaposition. Young and transparent are things you'd say about a tadpole. What those "terms" have to do with a barfly is anyone's guess.
Words actually associated with barfly: alcoholic, improperly sealed beer, Mickey Rourke.
The material is not alive, but it has the qualities of life.
We had to kill something to make this, and we want you to think about that every time you put it on. See how the leather seems to breathe? That used to be an alligator.

LIFE IN MATERIAL The rediscovery of metal; silver, steel, brass and bronze, and their use in the creation of something special.
TIMELESS An expression of "accessory" that finds a balance between statement and understatement.
GRATIFICATION To the hand and eye.
We took a look around and asked, what are people not using anymore? And the answer we got was metal. No one is making jewelry out of metal! And then we searched for a word to properly convey our idea of jewelry. That word - accessory. Not just the word but the expression of that word, which says a lot in the un-saying. The result? Something you can both feel AND see.
