The 10 Best Things to Snag from Designers at New York Fashion Week: Men's

From Esquire Magazine

1. This Field Jacket from Tommy Hilfiger 

Cotton jacket ($189) by Tommy Hilfiger,
See the faded, lived-in effect? That's the result of pigment dyeing, and this lightweight, two-tone, deep-pocketed field jacket was built to look like you've had it forever.

2. This Bag from Shinola

Leather bag ($895) by Shinola,
An optimally sized tote from the Detroit brand's new leather-goods capsule collection. The leather is straight out of Chicago's Horween factory, which means it's some of the toughest stuff around.

3. This Sweater from Billy Reid

Wool-blend sweater (price available upon request) by Billy Reid,
We're not sure what we'd call the pattern on this chunky knit, but as with most things Billy Reid, it will mark the man wearing it in the best possible way.

4. This Button-Down from Thom Browne

Cotton shirt ($350) by Thom Browne,
Browne has always upended our expectations of how things should fit, and this trim button-down shirt will follow your body's natural contours so well that the rest of your shirts will start to feel loose.

5. This Sweatshirt from Public School

Knit crewneck sweatshirt ($525) by Public School,
Nobody is doing tailored sweatshirts better than Public School right now, and this blend of acrylic, viscose, and polyurethane feels like cashmere and fits like nothing else in the world.

6. This Weekender from Coach

Leather bag ($695) by Coach,
The pebbled leather. The earthy shade of green. The soft and sturdy shell. This is what Coach does best.

7. This Gray Suit from John Varvatos 

Virgin-wool four-button jacket ($1,498), virgin-wool trousers ($598), virgin-wool vest ($598), and cotton-and-linen shirt ($228) by John Varvatos,; leather shoes ($185) by Johnston & Murphy,

Warning, Car Porn

The signature feature is the Rolls Royce Wraith’s Starlight Headliner, consisting of 1,340 LEDs hand-sewn to create an effect of owning one’s personal night sky filled with stars...

Warning, content below represents a man's libidinous fascination with an automobile. It is not Lolita; after all Bradley Berman, the author, is not Nabokov and the Wraith is not underaged. Nonetheless, I find myself simultaneously repulsed... and seduced. David J. Katz

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
