Gucci’s Legendary Loafer Gets Winterized

When it comes to the chilly and harsh weather of winter, a good-looking and hard-wearing boot is a must. You can turn to classics, like the ultra-rugged Blundstone or L.L. Bean’s sturdy-as-it-gets duck boot. (It’s no accident that both shoes have earned GQ’s “Best Stuff” label in recent years.) Or you can go the trendier route. It’s risky—a boot’s meant to last forever—but sometimes, a designer boot comes around that checks all the right boxes for the season. Alessandro Michele and Gucci have delivered just that: a waterproof, warmed-up boot that delivers style—and a bit of cheekiness to boot.

Gucci’s “ankle boot” riffs on the brand’s horsebit loafer, perhaps its most iconic footwear style, reimagining it for the winter reason. That means an ankle-high, rubber-molded silhouette with a water-resistant finish. Then come the luxurious details we associate with Gucci footwear: gold- and silver-tone metal horsebit

After Today’s Chris Paul Trade, There’s a New (Fashion) Superteam in the NBA

Gilgeous-Alexander is the league’s most promising outfit assembler: a young player capable of putting together hyped streetwear pieces with under-the-radar designers and novelty knits. Happy news for the team: much like a player who works on his jump shot over the summer, SGA only got stronger during the NBA’s coronavirus-induced break. Bazley, meanwhile, proved himself a versatile wing in his first year in the league. He’ll wear a double-breasted suit one night and on another shiny leather pants with a vest and nothing underneath—a contender for NBA fit of the season.

In Oubre, the Thunder are adding another breed of dresser. Oubre brings a completely different skillset to the table: the former Sun is known for his punk-rock approach to the NBA tunnel. Instead of the latest designer pieces, Oubre wears leather harnesses, wallet chains, Rolling Stones tees, checkerboard jackets, tiger-striped cardigans,

Jonah Hill Is Still Having Fun Getting Dressed

Yeah. They let me do exactly what I wanted to do. And this collection, since it takes so long, it was two years ago. It was exactly what I wanted to make two years ago.

What was the initial spark? Where did you want to steer it?

Well, my first release was a Superstar—and because it was going to be the 50th anniversary [of the shoe], they told me that’s what I’d have to release first. So I love my Superstar, but it wasn’t what I chose. Immediately I said, you can’t get basics at these big sportswear companies that are decent. They’re either really tech-y or they have logos and shit all over them. So for me, the Samba’s my favorite silhouette; I want to make a Samba. And then, what I would wear all the time in New York at that time was basketball shorts, Dickies, and puffer

This Is Joe Biden’s Victory Watch

Presidents have long worn watches, but over the past couple of decades, timepieces have increasingly served as props: ways for presidents and Oval Office hopefuls to telegraph something about their approaches. Bill Clinton and his Ironman Timex wrist monster (theoretically) ingratiated him with the common man. When Mitt Romney ran for president in 2012, he had millions in the bank—and maybe some Pateks in the closet—but he often wore watches from Nixon or Seiko that belied his massive net worth. Donald Trump, who projected the image of a successful businessman who would apply that same acumen to governing, alternated between a gold Rolex and a Vacheron Constantin Historiques Ultra-Fine 1968 that costs upwards of $25,000. That’s all to say: watches are usually the most obvious kind of symbols. But Joe Biden’s watch is not so easily decoded.

In his first act as president-elect on Saturday night, Biden took the

Best Whitening Strips 2020 | The 10 Best Teeth-Whitening Products

If you’re searching for the best whitening strips or otherwise looking to get whiter teeth, we’ve got you. Because no matter how thorough your basic brushing and flossing regimen is, that alone won’t get you pearly white teeth. It’d be a hell of a lot easier if things like coffee, tea, red wine, dark cola, and tomato sauce weren’t staining the teeth every day, but alas. None of us is going to give up any of those, so instead we’ve got to pick up a consistent teeth-whitening program if we want a brighter smile.

Whitening the teeth is something that can be done in short, targeted sessions, and discoloration can be abetted by incorporating specific anti-staining products into your existing oral-care regimen. The biggest step of proactively whitening the teeth is something that some people will only do with a dentist, since it involves removing enamel, exposing the tiny pores

Everyone Wants Steve Kornacki’s Extremely Normal Khakis

NBC News and MSNBC correspondent Steve Kornacki has officially ascended to that hallowed level of fame: style influencer. The Diet Coke-guzzling election analyst emerged as a star on election night, dispensing takes over a shockingly long period of time in what appeared to be the same khakis-and-tie outfit. A grateful nation watched with joy—and perhaps a little bit of pants envy. The Gap khakis he copped to owning multiple pairs of on-air Wednesday are now experiencing a surge in sales.

A Gap spokesperson told the Today show that Kornacki’s devotion to the pants led to a “dramatic increase in online traffic and within a day, we saw around 90% unit sale increase online.” The specific pair of pants are Gap’s modern khakis (either straight or slim fit) in Palomino brown, according to the Strategist.

Kornacki’s wardrobe choice is a win for the enduring appeal and comfort of khakis. I
