This North Face Collection Really Makes Us Wanna Go Outside

It’s not heresy to say that the North Face is better known for its winter-ready puffer jackets than for springtime clothes. But the outdoorsy brand’s latest “Urban Exploration” line, set to drop this month, seems ready to change all that. It is the third collection produced in collaboration with Japanese designer Kazuki Kuraishi, who has been doing his thing to elevate the legendary brand’s basics for several years now. The entire collection is built to be mixed and matched, and feels like the kind of thing that’ll kick-start any spring wardrobe—whether you live in the city, the mountains, or any other socially distant space in between.

Familiar North Face signatures abound: windproof parkas, water-resistant overshirts, and bold graphic T-shirts. But a closer look reveals that Kuraishi has pared back many of the garments to their essentials. Details like buttons and stitching are tonal, matched to

Bill Belichick, Who Wears Sweats to Work, Has Decided Now Is the Time to Start Dressing

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is as famous for his uniform as any coach can be: he’s known for his unique combo of hoodies, sweatshirts with the sleeves cut off, swishy Nike track pants, and a beanie perched on top of his head maximally askew. In other words, he looks like most of the world does right now, as more people than ever are staying home—and comfortable—to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. But today, in a video posted by the Patriots, Belichick (in his finest monotone, obviously) shared his appreciation for doctors, nurses, and medical workers and encouraged everyone to stay home. It was very nice, and will surely lead to a 1000% increase in New England residents willing to shelter in place. But the video was also shocking—jarring even.

That’s because the man who’s spent practically all his time in the spotlight wearing a

14 Best White T-Shirts For Everyone in 2020

Determining the best white T-shirts is a near-impossible task. Every brand on Earth makes their own white tee, and every person on Earth has their own go-to version. (For proof, just look at the 22 stellar options that GQ staffers swear by here.) A great white T-shirt is the foundation of your wardrobe—you can pull one on alone with jeans, use it to tamp down the wildness of your new silk camp shirt, tuck it in with your sharpest suit, wear it around the house in your boxers, whatever. Finding the right white tee for you really depends on, well, you: Do you want the fabric to be thick and beefy or airy and soft? A trim, tailored cut, or a loose, boxy one? Are you willing to drop some serious dough on a truly perfect tee, or does that seem outrageous for something so basic? We

The Big Everlane Sale: 21 Picks from GQ

For the first time ever, Everlane is putting its entire shop on sale. Like much of the fashion industry, Everlane has been hit hard by the economic downturn that’s followed in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. (The company recently laid off or furloughed more than 200 of its workers, somewhat controversially.) And like a lot of other retailers, they are scrambling to make up the lost revenue by way of big sales. It’s by no means a reason to celebrate, but if you’ve been eyeing any of the brand’s closet-filling basics—Everlane’s always-reliable tees and sweats, top-notch cashmere knits, maybe its entry-level suit—now is as good a time as any. Today the brand launched a massive new sale knocking 25 percent off everything site-wide. If you need some guidance, scroll on down for a handful of our top picks from the sale.

Men’s Fashion Weeks in Europe Have Been Canceled

The spread of COVID-19 is leaving a long list of canceled and indefinitely postponed events in its wake: the NBA season, the Met Gala, and even the Tokyo Olympics have all been moved, rescheduled, or put on indefinite hiatus. Friday brought news that the men’s fashion calendar would shift, too: the men’s spring/summer 2021 fashion weeks in London, Milan, and Paris, originally scheduled for June, have been taken off the schedule.

In addition to the men’s week, the French Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, which oversees the French fashion industry, announced it is also canceling Haute Couture week, which was set for early July. In a statement, the federation said it “is actively working with its members on alternatives,” The New York Times’s Vanessa Friedman reported. The Camera Nazionale della Mode Italiana (The National Chamber of Italian Fashion) wrote in a press release
