How Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God Is Reinventing Luxury American Fashion

Lorenzo still doesn’t adhere to the dictates of the traditional fashion calendar—he puts out a new Fear of God collection only when he’s ready, usually once every year or so. His seventh collection includes denim and sneakers and a classical, graphic homage to the Negro Leagues, but for the first time, it also contains elevated knitwear, louche suiting, even loafers: effortless but expertly tailored clothes made to be worn from inside, rather than outside, the gates.

Since its unveiling in August, the collection has been hailed by publications from the Los Angeles Times to Vogue as a breakthrough—“a transitional punctuation mark between ‘emerging’ and ‘emerged,’ ” as the latter put it. The collection takes the same energy Lorenzo had once put behind reinventing streetwear and turns it toward the entirety of the male wardrobe. The statement is as clear as the graphic he might have once affixed to a hoodie:

Salomon x The Broken Arm: The Technical Sneaker Boom Gets Even Techier

Five years ago, the cult-loved Parisian retailer The Broken Arm teamed up with the Italian mountaineering label Salomon on a pair of ultra-functional, high-top sneakers. The shoe, a technical style designed for snow sports, was remixed ever so slightly to make it suitable for everyday wear—and then dressed up with hype-worthy flare. The bold orange accent at the heel made it look more like a limited-edition Nike designed by Errolson Hugh than something you’d see trudging through the snow. Sneakerheads and menswear fanatics went wild. A few years later, the duo released another bonafide smash in the form of a rainbow-colored XT-4. Now, The Broken Arm and Salomon are back again with a sneaker that feels even more tech-forward than any previous collabs.

Even without the co-sign from a cool French shop, the stock of Salomon sneakers has been rising steadlily for years. If

Here’s Where to Buy Timothée Chalamet’s Wild Juicy Couture Hoodie

Boy oh BOY, did we ever spoil all of you yesterday with our November cover story. A lush 8,000(!)-word profile of one Timothée Hal Chalamet—riddled with intimate quotes from Greta Gerwig about her “friend Timmy,” stories about Joel Coen telling stories about Bob Dylan, and deep insights into that Capri yacht kiss—published alongside a series of increasingly searing, sumptuous images of our héro damp-haired and designer-clad deep in the wilderness of upstate New York. Hidden among those photos was a minute detail that many of you were quick to notice, obsess over, and correctly FREAK OUT about on the Internet for the remainder of the day. Namely, this fashion credit printed just below the first image:

LeBron James Wears the Watch of a Champion

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we’ll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.

Typically, the events following an NBA championship are as precision-coordinated as the Oscars. In the arena, fans stay to revel as their team takes the podium. The locker room practically turns into a kiddie pool of sprayed champagne. And a few days later, a massive championship parade rolls through the winning team’s city. It’s an excuse to smoke more cigars on a float, and wear some pretty great watches: in 2016, after leading the Cavs past the Warriors, James wore a gold Rolex Day-Date II. More recently, Patrick Mahomes chose a Rolex Yacht-Master while celebrating the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, and Alex Morgan went with an Hublot Big Bang after the U.S. women’s soccer team won the World Cup.

This year, of course, all that careful planning goes out

The Best Shampoo for Men with Thinning Hair In 2020

The best shampoo for thinning hair can keep your precious hairs hydrated and looking fuller, and in some cases, even help prevent further loss. From pills to plasma injections to transplants, you’ve got a bunch of options for treating and preventing hair loss, but having the right shampoo at the ready is essential. Regardless of how you decide to address a receding hairline (if you do anything at all), one of the best defenses is a proper hair care regimen of shampoo and conditioner.

Before we go any further, it should be noted that here at GQ, we are, for the most part, shampoo skeptics. The fact is that most men grossly overwash their hair. This is counterproductive for most guys. But sometimes you’ve got to audit your priorities and choose accordingly, and if you need voluminous, fuller hair, then perhaps you should shampoo daily. (We suggest
