In the Venn diagram of affordability, quality, and style, the Timex Marlin hits dead-center every time. Released in the 1960s and re-released, more or less unchanged, in 2017, it’s that exceptionally rare sub-$200 watch that can easily go face-to-face, as it were, with counterparts that sell for thousands more. In the years since its much-hyped re-release, that first 34mm hand-wound Marlin has been joined by a steady stream of new Marlin re-editions featuring bigger cases, automatic movements, and one incredible Beagle Scout Snoopy riff, among many others. Fortunately, the brand’s latest drop, equipped with a moss-hued dial, proves Timex is nowhere near out of ideas (or archival inspo). Better still, its green dial is right on the money in 2022.

The question was posted, a few years back, alongside a selfie of the asker nose-deep in an Air Jordan. The group’s consensus was: No, they weren’t alone. “I borderline huff my new shoes,” someone replied. New car smell has been a sought-after scent for decades. But what about that box-fresh sneaker smell?

Anyone who follows John Mayer on Instagram is accustomed to seeing watches on his feed. Typically, they are very nice, very exclusive watches: Rolex “Rainbow” Daytonas, the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak with gems set in a design that mimics an equalizer, one of Patek Philippe's impossible-to-find sport watches. But he shared an unexpected message on Wednesday.

Almost every day, around 1:00, Maurice Kamara takes his lunch break from selling clothes at a luxury boutique in Soho and gets to work at his real job: taking videos of people’s outfits for TikTok. The 35-year-old Brooklyn native strolls the neighborhood’s cobblestone streets in a big loop, intently scanning passers-by for viral gold. Kamara, whose fashion page The People Gallery has over 500,000 followers between TikTok and Instagram, has an open mind for any and all styles. He’s captured a guy named Cris wearing a vintage Michael Jackson tee and a magnificent Chopova Lowena skirt, and Aziz Ansari in a Japanese chore coat and navy chinos. The quality that links both is Kamara’s singular, discerning eye. During fashion week, I tag along and get a look at his process in action. As we stroll down Wooster St, we pass an elegant woman dressed like a rich cowboy, with a suede jacket, flared jeans, and a Rolex on her wrist. Her, I ask? Kamara shakes his head. His curation is a combination of wattage—the Ansaris of the neighborhood—and pure intuition. “I just have to see that person and I know: that’s the fit,” Kamara says.

We rounded up the best tea tree shampoo, because we’ve long sung the praises of tea tree oil. It's a superhero ingredient for a variety of skin and hair care products, because the essential oil is both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory; it has been used for centuries in remedial practices to promote wound healing, calm swelling, reduce odor, and neutralize both bacteria and fungus.

Apple's Far Out event last week saw the brand lift the curtain on some impressive new goodies, including the iPhone 14 Pro, the Apple Watch Ultra, and the second-generation AirPods Pro. To make room for all the new stuff, you can find a lot of the older models on sale, like the first-generation AirPods Pro, which are marked down from $249 to $180. Considering the new AirPods retail for $249, we can't imagine their predecessor will go back up to full price any time soon. So while everyone's trying to scoop up the cool new thing, you can scoop the cool “old” thing for $69 off—and you don't have to wait on a super-long line at the Apple store to do it.
Pant legs have unfurled as of late, blossoming out above ankles and pooling around various footwear of choice. That’s right: flares are happening. One could peg the great pants bloom to any number of things: general retro nostalgia, or maybe Kim Jones, Alessandro Michele, and the late Virgil Abloh sending them down the runway at Dior, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton for another. But one discernible marker is that Offset, the most fashion-obsessed member of the Migos, was an early adopter to the flares revival. Come to think of it, Offset has been ahead of the trend on several pants-related fronts—and as his wife, Cardi B, put it on Monday night, Offset’s “pant game different.”
Saturday afternoon, Rhuigi Villaseñor strode quickly into the Milanese warehouse where he was set to show his debut Bally collection in a few hours time. Wearing a dark denim set and Visvim sandals, he dropped a well-traveled Hermès HAC duffle bag on the ground and looked around for a coffee. He was, he admitted, feeling nervous. How could he not be? He’d been given the keys to a well-resourced luxury house, and tasked with turning the old boat around. Or, more specifically, with bringing some of the magic he’s conjured at Rhude, where his cleverly branded riffs on Americana—racing jackets, penny loafers—have earned a growing cult following among young, fashion-obsessed men. A simple assignment, maybe, but not an easy one to pull off.
Sometimes it can feel like function is divorced from fun in the world of watches: new watches boast about highly visible numerals or classic designs, like the ones used by the divers or pilots who once used them for their actual purposes, rather than strange new colors, shapes, or complications. But recently, fun and function seem to be settling into a happy marriage: the toolsiest of pieces are set with diamonds and notoriously difficult-to-engineer tourbillons are accompanied by fashionably bright colors. Nowhere is this combination more evident than in a new slate of watches from Audemars Piguet.

In his daydreams, Snoopy took on many personas, almost all of them world-famous: the greatest living surgeon, a skilled WW1 fighter pilot, an arm wrestling champion, and the coolest most sunglasses-pulling-off creature on earth. Last year, watch designer George Bamford, along with the limited-edition team at watch publication and retailer Hodinkee, received an interesting Snoopy-related assignment: comb through the catalog of the famous cartoon dog’s alter egos, pitch their favorites, and decide which one belonged on the dial of an almost-$2,000 mechanical watch.
Big news in luggage: Ryan Gosling is the face of Gucci's new Valigeria campaign, which is centered around its travel gear, and will be seen on billboards popping up across the planet as you read this. Shot by photographer Glen Luchford, Gosling is seen with different pieces from the brand's “Gucci Savoy” collection. In one image he's pushing a Gucci luggage-stacked bell boy trolley, The Darjeeling Limited-style, while sporting a '70s-style, waist-cinched suit; in another, he's seen in a Hawaiian shirt from Gucci's Spring 2022 collection (worn by Macaulay Culkin on the catwalk, and already seen on Gosling on the red carpet) surrounded by GG monogrammed suitcases and carry-on bags (all of which will be available to shop in due course). Elsewhere he can be seen sitting on the back of a Chevy in a striped suit and a retro-infused skinny tie.
Everything in Post Malone’s world right now is “bussin’,” to borrow one of his favorite words of late. He is currently on tour, which is a blast, though he spent the last week healing from a gnarly fall sustained during a recent show. He and his fiancée welcomed their first child, a daughter, four months ago. “I’m so happy and I’m so ready to kick some ass,” Post tells me, speaking by phone from Detroit this week, where he’ll be performing this weekend. Tumbles aside, life is good.

The most thrilling part of attending a concert is feeling the bass drum rattle my insides like a Chestburster from Alien.

That audio just doesn't hit the same when you're cueing up an album or movie at home. Well, until now.
