13 rules for manhood.

1. Most people, most of the time, judge you by what you're wearing, and if you care about what people think (or care about being successful and respected), you should care about what you wear. Life doesn't get much simpler than that.


2. Wire hangers should be used only for breaking into cars.

3. Except on the golf course, golf umbrellas are unmanly.

4. If a man is wearing a class ring, do not respect him.

5. If a man is wearing a pinky ring, do not f*ck with him.

6. Navy is the most flexible suit color you can buy. Followed closely by charcoal and medium gray.

7. Your tie knot should always conceal the collar band behind it. If it doesn't, it's tied too loose.

8. There is a difference between water-resistance and waterproof. This is usually learned the hard way.

9. A watch should be worn securely around your wrist. It is not a bracelet.

10. A man can never own too many pairs of socks.

11. If you are uncertain how much cologne is enough, you are not allowed to use cologne.

12. No novelty neckties. No novelty anything — novelty has the tendency to wear off.

13. Pull yourself together. Always. Everywhere. Whether you're going to the deli or on a date, every occasion has minimum standards. Try to meet them.

Thanks to Esquire for pulling together a list of 24 manly rules from which I chose the only good ones.

jacket shirts (particularly of the flannel variety)

western (minus the frilly fringe)

and gymwear (as much as i hate to admit it).


go here to see the full list.

Gap x GQ.

Gap Inc. is the largest american clothing retailer and third largest in the world. The company is comprised of several brands, including Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, Intermix, and Piperlime. While the Gap brand has always focused on classic, american style, they've recenly collaborated with gq and the winners of gq's best new menswear designers in america. this is the third year this collaboration has taken place, and this year it's yielded, by far, the best results.

here's a look at my favorite pieces from the 4 collections from the 4 designers:




john elliott + co



Brooklyn Tailors



En noir



visit Gap's website for item details and purchase, or stop by select stores to see them in person and try them on. Since these collections are still in the process of being released, not all of the pieces are available for purchase yet. But be patient my young padawans, your time will come.

kanye x gq.

if you haven't seen the kanye pics in gq yet you must have been under a rock or forgot to pay your wifi/phone bill. these photos are literally plastered everywhere right now. i wasn't even going to post them because there's almost no need, but ye's style and clothing in this shoot is too good not to post. 

the way he pairs each piece and brings these outfits to life is next level. i mean, yeah, the high end clothing definitely plays a part, but just because you can afford expensive clothes doesn't mean you know how to dress.

check out kanye's style and what he brings to the table for gq.

how gq are you?

Gq launched their new how gq are you campaign and it's really starting to take off. Finally you can take selfies with a purpose other than snapchatting your friends or uploading mirror pics on instagram (but I'm sure you've never done something that lame, right?). 

Here's how it works:

  • create an account
  • upload a picture
  • rate uploaded pictures in the main gallery
  • comment if you have advice or critiques or really like something
  • share your pictures online 
  • win. yes, I said win. You can actually win monies and prizes for looking fresh

Not only will your interweb peers help you out, but gq staff will also be active in rating and commenting. You can bet we'll be on there in the near future. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and make us proud.

bill effing murray.

Bill Murray has got to be one of the funniest people on the planet, as well as one of my absolute favorite actors. His comedic timing is brilliant, his acting is phenomenal, and he's been known to do some of the most outrageous things just for a laugh. He doesn't care...he's bill effing murray.

Example A.) Tweeted by @quinnmartini: Today at McDonald's Bill Murray came in, ate one of my fries then looked me dead in the soul and said 'Noone will ever believe you'

Example B.) A recent Charleston RiverDogs game had to be delayed due to rain. Once the field was covered in a tarp the legendary comedian turned the infield into his own personal Slip N Slide.

Example C.) This was reported by a former Blockbuster employee:

I was working at Blockbuster in the Poconos late one night. The CSR on duty was in the back getting stuff to re-stock the snack shelves when, all of a sudden, Bill Murray walked in. The store was completely silent, since I had already turned off the overhead TVs, and was empty except for the two of us. So he walked around for about 2 minutes and eventually came up to the counter with Caddy Shack and Ghostbusters.

“Which one do you suggest?” he asked me completely serious, as if he had never heard of the two films. I looked at him bewildered for a moment than said “Ghostbusters…It’s a classic…” He reached over the counter, unlocked the magnetic lock on the case, deactivated the security strip, then grinned and walked out of the store before I could even react. I ran to the door after him and, before getting into his car, he turned around for a moment and mouthed to me “No one will ever believe you”.

I think at this point we can all agree that Bill Murray is a ridiculous (ridiculously amazing) human being.

So then this happened...

At this point, you might be thinking, 'I've seen Groundhog Day and The Life Aquatic, and Mr. Murray was not stylin.' So let me ask you this... What is the point of style? Who really is fashionable? Are rockstars stylish because they spend hours fixing their hair and ironing their shirts and bedazzling their jeans? NO! They're fresh because they don't care. 

"A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them." Yes, it is important to choose your clothing wisely, and to put it together well; but you should not be fussing about it all day. Once it goes on, do your thing. 

If there's anyone in this world that could care less about social norms and culutural acceptance, it's Bill 'The Billest' Murray. For that, we salute you.
