‘Age of Empires: Definitive Edition’ Restores a Classic for The Modern Age

History waits for no one — and over 20 years after its original release, Age of Empires has received the HD retouching this classic truly deserves.

Following on the footsteps of Age of Empires II HD, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition pulls the origins of the highly influential Age of Empires series into the modern age, with thorough graphical and UI improvements.

For players who’ve been with the series since the beginning, it’s a gorgeous re-rendering of the classic game. For newer players, curious about the origins of the series, it’s an enlightening experience that also showcases the game’s weaknesses compared to modern real-time strategy games.

The Age of Empires series tasks players with developing a civilization from a small, hunter-gatherer society to an expansive Iron Age Empire. The path to success is found by gathering resources, building structures that lead to more advanced technology, and conquering other nations.

The name of the game is micromanaging the development of your nation, and the flow of gameplay has changed little with Age of Empires: Definitive Edition – which will either delight or upset players depending on the experience they may be searching for.

Players can choose between a wide variety of different civilizations: Egyptians, Assyrians, Greeks, Persians, to name a few, and lead their civilization to the heights of a new Golden Age. Each nation state has their own unique perks, but these perks are mostly passive and are rooted in the same playstyle. This welcoming system makes it easy for players to try out different civilizations but might not bring enough customization to players looking for clearer playstyle distinctions.


Age of Empires: Definitive Edition-Town
The Age Of Empires of 2018 is a far cry from the blurred polygons of yesteryear.

The Remastered version of Age of Empires brings a plethora of changes. The graphical style of the game has been updated from the jagged pixel art of 1997 into full 3D models. An ‘attack-move’ feature has been added (units will auto-attack anything in their path while moving), and a ton of balance adjustments paired with the game’s many civilization types.

The biggest game-changing improvement of the Definitive Edition is the increased population limit. This allows more units to be created, civilian or military types, to perform more actions simultaneously.

The game received a significant rework on the sound design as well, with a remastered soundtrack and sound effects. The original Age of Empires soundtrack is regarded as one of the best of the time, and the restoration does it justice. New unit voices were also recorded (a new wololo!).

The cleaner UI makes hopping through menus a breeze. All of these improvements are welcome. But for those purists looking to forgo all these changes, you can enable Classic Mode to play the game in its original 1997 state.

Old Habits Die Hard


Age of Empires: Definitive Edition-Fight
While there’s not much new here, the increased population limit allows players to orchestrate some wonderfully epic battles.

It’s worth noting that while these improvements clean up the Age of Empires experience significantly, the true nuts-and-bolts of the game are unchanged. Some of the archaic elements of the original are still present – including the poor pathfinding on unit commands.

Pathfinding has significantly improved across the real-time strategy genre, and players familiar with modern offerings will immediately notice the lack of polish in this realm. You will need to lead some units by the hand, for nothing is worse than watching your warriors clumsy run into each other, dooming your attack. Sometimes units idling in your base will stand around in the midst of a major attack, and will only react if enemy units get close enough.

There is little true strategy in Age of Empires’ combat – besides fine-tuning your unit grouping, a fight consists of little more than clicking your units into combat and hoping for the best. Chances of success can be improved by carefully tweaking your units as the fight unfolds, but this is a skill that’s learned more through muscle memory and practice, as opposed to learning some grand strategy.

The inclusion of online multiplayer can give Age of Empires: Definitive Edition plenty of life well after you clear the game’s many single player campaigns. However, we found hiccups in the online experience in the handful of matches we played.

Outside of some occasional lag, losing a player can sometimes result in the match completely ending due to minor connection errors. The customizable options of online play can lead to some pretty unique matches, so thankfully a few connection problems don’t deter from the enjoyment of battling other players.

Is ‘Age of Empires: Definitive Edition’ Good?


Age of Empires: Definitive Edition-Civilization
It may be simplistic, but this game still oozes charm by the bucketload.

It’s a little unorthodox to see a remaster of the original game after the remaster of its sequel. Age of Empires II HD has been out for nearly five years and is widely considered to be the more well-rounded experience. For this reason alone, a remaster of the original Age of Empires is much more suitable for players of the original experience than newer players. Why should new players go back further than they need to when a widely-acclaimed sequel is already available?

But that being said, there is still something incredibly addictive about the original Age of Empires experience. Once players get settled into their micro-tasking, seeing your civilization blossom from nothing into a sprawling metropolis is magical. The progressions through the different technological ages constantly bring a level of excitement for the use of new technology and units.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is a must-play for series vets looking to recapture the nostalgia of their first RTS experience, and well worth a look for new players looking to understand the roots of the RTS genre.

How to Wear Blue and Gray: A Classic Menswear Color Combination

If you had to choose the most important colors to form the basis of a tailored wardrobe, they would be blue, particularly navy blue, followed closely by gray. These hues not only play well with various other shades but also work beautifully with one another, thus making them the most versatile color pairing in menswear.

The combination is always stylish while remaining conservative and perfect for the office. In this article, the first of a series of classic color combinations, we take a look at the different ways to pair blue and gray.

How to Wear Blue and Gray

Blue and Gray with a Suit and Tie

The easiest way to coordinate blue and gray is to match the two in a suit and tie combination.  It’s commonly said that when a man first ventures into the world of tailored clothing–or into the working world that demands such a dress code–he should begin with a navy blue suit. Using a gray tie with this navy suit is a surefire way to earn style points.

The second suit a man should own when starting a business wardrobe is a gray one, but here the recommendations vary between a mid-gray and a charcoal. In either case, you simply take the opposite approach as your first suit and coordinate with a blue tie. The entire range of gray presents a neutral backdrop for any mid – to navy blue tie to work. And, the fact that both blue and gray are cool colors ensures they will pair naturally. Even if your gray suit contains warmer brown tones, you’ll have no issues because blue also combines perfectly with brown.

Avoid Strong Contrast

Although pairing a gray tie with a blue suit and vice versa is nearly foolproof, there are some ways for you to make the most of this combination. For one thing, avoid too strong a contrast between the two colors, which is the general rule for any color coordination. So, if your suit is dark gray, avoid a really pale blue.

Add Pattern and Texture

Beyond avoiding sharp contrast, try adding complexity and interest to your blue and gray combinations by introducing textures and patterns. Sure, you can start simply with a white shirt, solid tie, and a plain worsted wool suit, but this gets boring fast. An easy way to add a pattern while remaining classic is to use a gray glen check tie in silk (or wool for winter) with a navy suit. For a gray suit, get a navy grenadine tie in either a large or fine weave (garza grossa or garza fina) to inject texture. In the reverse scenario, pick up a silver grenadine for a blue suit.

Use Items with Both Colors Together

The most sophisticated method to combine gray and blue with a suit and tie, however, is to choose items that contain both colors together. For example, you can wear a navy suit with a gray windowpane pattern. By definition, Prince of Wales suiting fabric differs from a glen check because it contains an overcheck in an additional color, and a common version of this is a gray base pattern with the addition of a blue overcheck, giving you both in one shot.

 

An example of Prince of Wales suiting fabric from Sartoria Rossi showing a gray base pattern with blue overplaid.

Printed silk ties with blue and gray geometric patterns or knit ties with both colors in them are likewise excellent options. I especially like the versatility of striped ties with either a repp pattern or large block stripes for this purpose. If you get a tie with stripes of both colors you can wear them easily with either gray or blue suits.

Gray and Blue with Odd Combinations

The same techniques mentioned above can be used when wearing sports coat and trouser combinations, though some men may be put off by the perceived difficulties of coordinating an additional article of clothing: pants in a different shade. If you begin with blue and gray, this is actually a piece of cake. Like the navy suit, the navy blazer is a staple, foundational item of menswear. Technically, a solid blazer has to be blue, so begin there and add gray pants.

You may have heard that the classic navy jacket and gray trousers will make you look like a security guard, but if you choose an appropriate fit and quality materials that simply won’t happen. Just stay away from cheap shoes, polyester fabric, and baggy fits, and you’ll be fine. Add a pocket square to the outfit, even a simple white linen one, and there’s no way your outfit will be mistaken for a uniform. Wearing a striped shirt or tie that isn’t plain, including the aforementioned navy or silver grenadine, will elevate the look as well.

The opposite move–a gray sports coat with navy trousers–is rarer, maybe because it is generally more difficult to pull off a lighter jacket with darker pants. However, there’s no reason to be dissuaded, as long as your blue pants don’t look like the bottom half of a suit. Here, a pattern can be your friend and using a gray sports coat that contains a pattern, again the classic glen check or Prince of Wales, will enhance your chances of success.

Multiple Layers of Blue and Gray

Going beyond the basics, you can use the principles in our Layering 101 guide to increase the sophistication of your gray and blue combinations.  When we talk about layering we immediately think knitwear and overcoats for colder weather.
These provide great opportunities to add either alternating layers of blue and gray hues–like a navy tie, gray sweater vest, and navy jacket–or a swath of the same color–like a navy blue tie, cardigan, and pants under a gray flannel sports coat. You can do the same with a gray or blue overcoat too: decide whether you want to duplicate the underlying color or contrast it, then get creative.

Gray and Blue Accessories

Accessories, including gloves, hats, and scarves, are another great way to use these two colors, and, again, you have two broad options. If you have a gray coat on, you could go monochromatic and select elegant gray cashmere-lined peccary gloves to match tones. Alternatively, go with a contrast and choose a pair of bold petrol blue leather gloves in lamb nappa leather. With a scarf, you may be able to “kill two birds with one stone” by purchasing a double-sided version, like this dark blue and gray one in alpaca from Fort Belvedere, which lets you contrast or blend with a flip of the cloth.

An overlooked accessory that’s especially great for warmer weather is a boutonniere. You won’t find a gray flower, even in nature, but you can definitely pop a realistic silk blue cornflower boutonniere into the lapel buttonhole of your gray suit jacket to bring on the spring.

Blue and Gray Shoes and Socks

Although blue and gray is usually a conservative combination, one of the boldest things you can do for your overall outfit is to wear these colors as footwear. Dark navy Oxfords are the best choice with a suit since they resemble a standard black business shoe with just a hint of added color, but they are difficult to find. Those with dandy impulses and in a less conservative environment could go with brighter blues, such as a blue wholecut Oxford or monk strap, paired with a light gray suit.
Navy Suede Double Monk Strap shoes

In terms of availability, your best bet for blue shoes might be navy loafers, which are most often found in suede, though polished calf leather makes for a more formal choice, perhaps with gray trousers and a sports coat. Pairing blue shoes of any sort with blue pants are trickier but possible if both colors are similar enough.

Those who are truly committed and a bit daring can try to locate spectator shoes that combine both navy and gray. A two-tone shoe is surprisingly versatile because it can accompany tailoring of either color.

Solid gray shoes appropriate for tailored clothing are exceedingly rare and tend to be lighter gray monk straps or derbies. Thus, they’re awkward for navy trousers due to the high contrast they create, and wearing them with gray could create too much uniformity in your outfit. However, you could always experiment if you find a pair. Something with two tones of gray or just dark gray would be more useful.
If you aren’t ready to make the leap to blue or gray shoes, a unique and inexpensive option that will also brighten things up is shoelaces in one of these classic colors. For around $ 10, you can put gray laces on black oxfords to be worn with a grey suit or blue laces on brown shoes with a navy suit.

Socks are also a terrific option to coordinate blue and gray. As a rule, begin with the principle of matching socks to your pants, not your shoes. You can show some panache by wearing socks that contain the complementary color to your pants (for example, blue socks with gray trousers ) or, better yet, socks that contain both colors, like a light blue and light gray shadow stripe.

Blue and Gray for Casual Wear

Though the Gentleman’s Gazette focuses on classic style, we’d be remiss not to mention the most popular article of casual clothing and probably the most popular blue fabric worn throughout the world–denim. We don’t specifically think of wearing gray with denim, but maybe we should take this page out of the classic menswear book and apply it to casual wear too. Blue jeans can easily be paired with a gray sports coat, provided the jeans are not overly distressed and the jacket casual enough, like something in an unstructured cotton or with sufficient texture.

Blue denim shirts have recently become a popular transitional garment, worn instead of dressier shirts with sports coats. Add a navy jacket, gray pants, and the aforementioned blue loafers, and you have a fantastic outfit.

Conclusion

There’s a reason why blue and gray are the base pairing in the DNA of classic men’s style, the primary colors to draw upon. Those who are new to color coordination use them as a means of creating fundamentally sound clothing combinations with minimal anxiety, while those who are stylistically advanced return to the pairing as a constant even as they experiment.  How have you used shades of gray and blue?

How To Layer Clothes For Men – Classic Layering 101

When summer turns to autumn and when winter weather is in full force, it’s time to layer up. Layering–with knits, vests, scarves or undershirts–is not only a practical way to keep warm; it also gives you the opportunity to experiment creatively with different looks, adding complexity to your tailored style. In this article, we’ll provide tips on layering when wearing a suit or sport coat.

Invisible Layering

When we think of layering for the purposes of style, we usually picture visible articles of clothing, but if insulation is your main reason for layering, and you want to look like you normally do when the weather is warmer, an undershirt is the way to go.  As discussed in our Undershirt Guide, you’ll find a number of sellers–Collected Threads, NVSBL, Sloane Men, Shirtless, and Ribbed Tee, to name a few–that promote the invisibility of their products: this is the one layer you never want to show.

It’s a Don’t: wearing a visible t-shirt as an undershirt

With this in mind, the usual plain white undershirt is not the ideal choice because it usually does show through, even under a white dress shirt. Fortunately, most of the above companies sell undershirts in multiple colors to help solve this problem. Gray is supposed to be less noticeable, though you can also try to get one in a color that comes close to your skin tone. Versions with various deep-v or scoop necks are also available, so you can still wear them unseen if you go tieless with your top one or two buttons open.

For invisible layering, try an undershirt close to your skin tone.

Keep in mind that layering under your shirt will add bulk, which will tend to make you look less sleek even if you have a thin build. It will likely lead to some bunching at the belly area, especially with slim-fit shirts, or make your shirt ride up, as you now have two layers of fabric moving around under your waistband as you walk, get up and down, and perform your daily activities. An undershirt also doesn’t leave you with the ability to take off layers easily if you get too warm. Still, if you are wearing tailored clothes and want a regular shirt and tie look under a jacket when it’s cold, an undershirt can be a good choice.

Six Techniques for Visible Layering Classic Men’s Clothing

Before you begin layering above your shirt (instead of under it), it’s essential to define what a layer is and how each layer interacts with the others. First off, layering is really about what you wear on your torso, where any individual item that goes on top of another one makes up a layer, whether or not it covers you. So, in visual terms, a scarf, a tie, and a pocket square count as layers just as much as a sweater and sports coat. Knowing this helps you envision how to style your layers effectively.

1. Monochrome Layers are Easy

Perhaps the easiest layering you can ever do is to create a monochrome look using all the same solid colors, such as a three-piece suit with a matching color tie and overcoat. This requires very little skill provided the colors in your layers harmonize with one another, but the end result can be eye-catching. Note that this is best accomplished with a color that isn’t too dark; dark navy and black will not offer enough interest or contrast to make this look polished.

2. Layer with Contrasting Colors

A good beginner’s principle that you can always follow is to contrast your layers by alternating between colors. You can use either complementary colors or those in the same family. Think chocolate layer cake with mocha or hazelnut cream. Let’s say that you have a blue necktie on. The layer above it, a knit cardigan, could be gray, brown, beige, rust, yellow or any other color that complements blue. Following the rule of alternation, you could go back to blue for the jacket above your cardigan.

Alternatively, you could choose a third color that coordinates with your other layers, like a tonal variation. For example, you could wear your blue tie with a taupe cardigan and then a brown jacket. This enables you to select your layering colors from a similar palette or family, like various gradations of blue or all earth tones for autumn as shown in the images below.

3. Alternate Solids and Patterns

Similar to using colors, you can contrast your layers by alternating between patterns and solids. So, if your shirt has a pattern (stripes or checks, for example), your tie would be a solid color. You can then use a patterned waistcoat above it and finish with a solid suit jacket or sports coat. The alternation is therefore pattern (shirt), solid (tie), pattern (waistcoat), solid (jacket). Another possibility would be a solid shirt, then a patterned tie on top of it, like a glen check, a solid knit sweater over that, and, finally, a patterned jacket: solid, pattern, solid, pattern, always alternating.

4. Try Two (or Three) Patterns in a Row

Of course, it is possible for those with an advanced sense of style to go pattern-on-pattern, such as a checked shirt with a windowpane necktie or a striped shirt with a geometric tie, but layering with more than two patterns is risky. If you also add a patterned vest, for example, your look becomes busy and visually cluttered, making it difficult for anyone to focus on any single aspect of your clothes. So, when involving patterns, start first with the thought of alternating and perhaps expand to two patterns in a row, followed by a solid.

With that said, one way to experiment with three pattern layering is to use variants of the same fairly subdued pattern, especially stripes.

5. Create a Bridge Between Layers with Shared Colors

When you use layers, you have a chance to coordinate colors in a sophisticated way, such as wearing an article of clothing that contains a small bit of the same color present in another layer, as discussed in the last example. In the first image below, the waistcoat contains both the orange of the tie and the blue of the jacket, creating a kind of transition between the two. In the second image, blue is repeated subtly in the double-breasted waistcoat while still maintaining some contrast. The subtle repetition of a color connects layers and unifies your look.

 6. Pay Attention to How Layer Colors Interact

When choosing layer colors, always keep in mind that the perception of a hue is most affected by the color directly next to it, so check how the color you select for each layer reads when adjacent to the next one. A royal blue tie might look good alone with a white shirt and brown jacket, but adding a rust waistcoat above it might make that tie suddenly appear too electric.

The good news is that the interaction of colors across layers can often help alleviate one of the sins of style: wearing two solid colors that are similar but different enough for the difference to be noticeable.  For instance, it might not look great to wear a copper tie with rust pants because the two colors are similar but just a little “off,” but the minute you throw a beige cardigan on, the visual separation created by the added layer can harmonize the two colors. If you want to wear a solid blue tie that is just a shade different from your suit jacket, separating them with a grey waistcoat tricks the eye into ignoring the dissimilarity.

What Garments to Use for Layering

Assuming a shirt and jacket, with or without a tie, to be your starting point, we can turn our attention to options for what to wear above or between these base layers.

1. A Waistcoat or Vest

Historically the first additional layer worn by gentlemen would be a waistcoat. In fact, this was originally not optional because today’s shirts were originally considered undergarments to be hidden. A vest was necessary to cover the wrinkles, dirt and inevitable dishevelment of a shirt as it is worn during the course of a day, smoothing out the wearer’s appearance. The odd vest can do the same for you today by creating a more refined visual layer while also adding color or pattern to an otherwise staid outfit. In fact, even the most formal of get-ups, morning wear, admits a splash of color via buff yellow and cornflower blue waistcoats. Plus, you don’t need to worry about getting your tie blades the same length; just keep them under your vest.

For a more casual look, you can try a knitted vest, in cashmere or wool, with or without buttons.

2. A Cardigan

Chris Cardigan

The look of a light cardigan under a suit jacket or sports coat is similar to that of a waistcoat but provides the added benefit of long sleeves for extra insulation. Cardigans are probably the most common layering choice today. They’re easy to pack for travel and can be taken off and put on easily as the weather changes. When sizing a cardigan, it is usually better to get one that fits close to your body because cardigan knits tend to be softer in construction than the odd vest. Otherwise, a loose fitting cardigan tends to bunch around your midsection and look make you look paunchy by emphasizing your belly area. As with a waistcoat, cardigans look best if you also leave a button or two open at the bottom. Some gents open one or two top buttons as well, which can either come across as sprezzatura indifference or sloppy depending on your point of view.

3. A Zip Sweater or Vest

For a more sporty look, some men prefer to layer under a sports coat with zip neck sweaters or synthetic quilted vests like those made of nylon. They present more of an outdoorsman or après ski style and definitely add warmth in winter but are better with casual outerwear, such as a bomber jacket, peacoat, or waxed cotton jacket, than as a layer with tailored clothes.

4. A Scarf

European men, especially Italians, know the power of a scarf to add depth and complexity to an outfit, and Italians will be the first to tell you they don’t wear scarves primarily for warmth. A scarf gives you layering versatility for three seasons. In spring, fall, or winter, it can be worn on top of an overcoat, between a jacket and an overcoat, under a jacket, and even under a shirt if it’s thin enough, without adding too much bulk to your torso. Available in a huge range of colors and patterns, in silks and cashmere, a scarf is the most flexible tool to achieve levels of contrast while layering.

Solid Cashmere Scarves Made in Germany - Fort Belvedere

Scarves, like these from Fort Belvedere, are a perfect choice for cashmere. They can be worn for decades, and are soft and warm on the neck.

5. An Ascot or Cravat

Cravats and ascots, like those sold by Fort Belvedere, are unique among layering items since they represent a visible layer beneath your collar-line. This can make them useful to set up a particular sequence of contrasting patterns and colors. Since cravats can be any cloth worn directly around the neck, light silk scarves are also a popular choice to be worn this way. Certainly, these forms of neckwear deserve more widespread use, offering the beauty of a tie in a more unusual form. For advice on how to wear them check out our guide.

6. A Pocket Square

As small as they are, pocket squares count as a level when you’re layering because, like a tie, they present a visual plane with color and/or pattern above the level of your jacket. They also pack a lot of visual punch because they are actually your “top layer” unless you wear an overcoat or scarf. They provide a chance to pick a tone from your other layers and represent it subtly again. Or they enable you to add further contrast or a complementary color. Read our guide on how to combine a pocket square with your tie, suit, and shirt.

7. Overcoat

When it truly is cold out, a wool or cashmere overcoat will represent your topmost layer, unless you put a pocket square or pair of gloves in your coat pocket.  Coats are unique because their effect varies depending on how you wear them. If you wear them open for the most part, they should coordinate with your other layers following the techniques presented earlier. If you wear your coats closed, however, you can choose to coordinate with just your tie or whatever shows in the open V at your chest, like a scarf; you control which layers to show. This can give open the door for variations, including overcoats in a brighter color or stronger patterns like a Casentino.

Conclusion

Whether we notice it or not, layering takes place quite often on a casual level: it happens whenever someone puts on a hoodie or a sweater and a coat. However, layering with tailored clothing requires conscious thought and greater aesthetic consideration. You need to make use of your coordination skills but take them up a notch or two because you have to achieve an effect with a larger number of garments, each of which has an effect on the others. It’s an opportunity to up your game and experiment stylistically, with the reward of creating a more complex outfit that also keeps you warm in inclement weather.

This Classic Trend Is Ageless, and Zendaya Can Prove It

Suiting separates are a perennially chic option for men and women alike—and while some might find the look specific to a certain age bracket, there are plenty of modern style stars refuting that notion. Take Zendaya, for example. The 21-year-old actress and singer recently stepped out in a totally unique tuxedo look that proves the style suits everyone (quite literally).

Her jacket and pants are by Dutch designer Ronald van der Kemp and feature unexpected details at the lapels that give it a cool vintage effect. While we’ll always appreciate a classic suit, we love that Zendaya chose an iteration that incorporates a bit of unexpected edge. When it comes to dressing to impress, a well-tailored pairing as seen here is always a great option, whether you’re 19 or 99.

Crystal’s Modern Classic Kitchen Design Board

 

My partner and I are currently in the planning process of our first new home build so dreaming up a custom kitchen is quite a timely assignment! This dream board pulls together some of my favorite’s right now: colorful cabinetry, gold accents and just a touch of whimsy.

The centerpiece of this kitchen is a beautiful island with a white, waterfall countertop and Genova large format porcelain tiles accenting the front for an elegant detail. I choose a wide rail shaker style cabinet door for a clean, modern look in a timeless style and added  satin brass hardware. For the backsplash, I went with a White Malojica Glossy Wall Tile from the Ames Tile Trends Collection that is both subtle and glamorous at the same time.  Flooring is a 8″ x 48″ Brown Wood Porcelain Tile; the dark color brings a rich warmth to the space.

To complete the look, I picked a faucet, light fixture and accessories with gold detailing and interesting details for a look that is both classic and trendy, with plenty of glam.

Grailed Opens New Market for Classic Menswear

Grailed has been a great new marketplace for menswear enthusiasts. While we’re longtime fans of eBay, it can be hard to find stuff there without using pre-designed search filters (which is why we have our eBay roundups, to help readers find the good stuff). There’s also a bit of trading still happening on the buying-and-selling sections of menswear forums, but they can be hard to navigate – sort of like trying to find a cool jacket on Craigslist. 

The great thing about Grailed is that it’s a user-driven community of menswear enthusiasts, with a sizable team on the backend to help sort listings between the site’s mainpage, Core, and Hype subsections (the last two being for basics and hyped streetwear, respectively). The site’s unique interface also makes it easy to serendipitously find things you may not have known about as you’re scrolling through the site. All in all, the site just makes it easier to find find great things for your wardrobe. 

Today, Grailed is launching their newest subsection, Sartorial, which is for tailored clothing and classic menswear. Brands such as Alden and Crockett & Jones have always thrived on the site, but the marketplace has been generally geared towards the casual side of the spectrum – more niche designer jackets from Japan, rather than something you can wear to a conservative office. Grailed’s new Sartorial subsection is looking to change that by consolidating all the tailored and classic menswear into one place. And they’ll be supporting it with editorial content on their blog (the first photo above is a preview of their story on Cucinelli, which is scheduled to go up tomorrow). 

Note, as with any of these sites, you’ll want to smartly employ the search filters in order to drill down on things that’ll work for you. Grailed also allows you to save your searches so you don’t have to click through all the options the next time you visit. You can see the Sartorial subsection here.

Coco Ho Claims QS6,000 at the 2017 Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro

WSL PRESS RELEASE

PLAYA DE PANTIN, Galicia – Spain (Saturday, September 2, 2017) – The Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro culminated today with the victory of Coco Ho (HAW), 26, over Caroline Marks (USA), 15, in two-to-three foot surf.
Despite a near-disappearing act from the waves, the women’s final day was full of surprises and crowned the 2017 Champion in front of huge crowds enjoying the show from the iconic Pantin headland.

In the final, Caroline Marks was quick to take action and post a decent 6.17 in the opening minutes of the bout. Coco Ho had a slower start but after a few exchanges, found herself with priority when the first real wave of the final approached.

Starting on her backhand, the Hawaiian locked in two excellent turns right in the lip for an 8.83 and the lead. While Marks had a hard time keeping her composure under pressure, Coco continued to exploit the right sections and posted a 7.67 to put her opponent in a combination situation, and eventually take out the 2017 Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro. After the Pro Anglet last week, Coco Ho continued on her roll and signed back-to-back wins, adding an important 6,000 points to her 2017 QS tally.

“It’s been amazing to be back in Pantin, I can never believe how beautiful this place is,” Ho stated. “The waves have been really fun this week, and I’m stoked it’s my third time back and I finally got a good result! From the water it was insane to see so many people, so thank’s everyone for coming to support us.”

At only 15 years old, Caroline Marks claims a career-best runner-up at this level of competition, but it comes as no surprise as her season attests of the talent the Floridian-born surfer has shown. With another couple of big results under her belt, she has one foot anchored in the QS Top 6 and a potential seat on the 2018 Championship Tour roster.

“It’s been such an incredible week, I’m so blessed and grateful of my whole support crew,” Marks said. “I wasn’t really thinking about points, I’m really just trying to have fun surfing, but it’s really exciting. I’m simply just going to try my hardest in the next QS event and whatever happens, happens. I have a few trips between now and the Sally event so I’m going to keep on living the dream right now.”

In a wave-starved opening semifinal, Bronte Macaulay (AUS), 23, tried to keep busy and surfed three average waves to build a low-scoring heat total of 9.60. It seemed like the right option considering her opponent did not have a score on the board halfway through the heat, but Marks came back in the heat with a solid 7 point ride. The american only needed a minor score which she easily got in the dying moments of the heat, forcing Macaulay out in equal third place in Pantin.

“It was a tricky heat with not many waves and Caroline got the one set that came through,” Macaulay said. “It was one of those heats you wish you’d done differently, but I’m super happy to have a heat against her, she’s such an awesome person and has been ripping all event!”

The second semifinal unfortunately suffered the same swell-plague as Ho and Silvana Lima (BRA), 32, battled for the second spot in the final. This time, the patient approach of Lima did not pay off and it was Ho’s average scoreboard that was enough for the win. The Brazilian, who posted an incredible 18.66 total in the quarters did not get an opportunity to showcase her radical brand of surfing and bowed out in equal third place.

“I always have good results here in Pantin and I love coming back!” she said. “This result is great for the points, I feel a lot more comfortable now to re-qualify for next year. ”

The next call in Pantin will convene the men at 9 a.m Sunday for the finals.

The Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro is scheduled from August 29 – September 3, 2017 at playa de Pantin, Galicia / Spain. For all results, photos, video highlights and press releases, log on to worldsurfleague.com.

Review: Slick and Entertaining, It Can’t Match the Horror of Stephen King’s Classic

The best or at least the most memorable movie adaptations of Stephen King novels—like Carrie or The Shining—create a vivid universe unto themselves while channeling King’s fearlessness in exploring the dark side of human nature. King’s novels, with their seemingly infinite layers of detail and meandering, entertaining asides, are difficult to adapt. But whatever you do, locking into King’s tone is essential. For all his willingness to stare down the darkest horrors and put them on the page, he’s also blazingly sympathetic to human insecurities and flaws. He doesn’t just show us a bunch of scary stuff. He challenges us to confront why we find that stuff scary in the first place.

Director Andy Muschietti’s It, adapted from King’s disquieting 1986 epic of the same name, doesn’t cut very deep and isn’t very scary. At its best, it’s a sometimes-entertaining evocation of the way kids think and talk within their little cliques, and of the way they protect one another with fierce loyalty. Rob Reiner’s 1986 Stand By Me is the obvious comparison point. It’s the end of the 1988 school year in the small Maine town of Derry, and a bunch of the nerdier, less-popular kids are looking forward to a summer of being picked on by the town bullies. There’s asthmatic mother’s boy Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer), gangly Jewish kid Stanley Uris (Wyatt Olef), whose religion puts him in the minority in small-town Maine, and wiseguy comedian Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard). Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher) is one of the quieter, more thoughtful members of the gang; he has a stutter he can’t control, and he’s still reeling from a recent family tragedy. His six-year-old brother, Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott), disappeared earlier in the year—the event is dramatized with chilling precision in the movie’s opening sequence.

The boys’ chief nemesis is teenage bad apple Henry Bowers (Nicholas Hamilton), and he’s not your average harmless misguided delinquent. At one point he attempts to carve his name into the stomach of another local kid, Ben Hanscom (Jeremy Ray Taylor). Ben is saved by Bill and the others, and two more kids end up joining the group: Mike (Chosen Jacobs) lives on a nearby sheep farm, where his chores include some of the more challenging work farmers need to do. He is also black, and so, like Stan, he’s another small-town Maine rarity. Beverly (Sophia Lillis), the only girl in the group, is slightly older, and she’s living a secret nightmare life at home. At school, she’s been branded “fast,” though there’s no truth to that accusation. She’s just a smart, considerate girl who tends to keep to herself.

Muschietti, who directed the effective 2013 horror thriller Mama, starring Jessica Chastain, does a fine job of sketching each of these kids as individuals, a challenge that even more experienced directors sometimes fail to meet. The problem is that the plot escalates in its ridiculousness, and Muschietti can’t control it. The kids learn that their town is in the grip of an evil force—the It of the title—who emerges every 27 years to feast on the locals, particularly the children. This It generally takes the form of Pennywise (played by Bill Skarsgård), an old-school circus clown with menacing eyes who lives in the town’s sewers and whose presence is sometimes announced by an ominous, free-floating red balloon.

Once the kids realize what It is up to, they want to stop It once and for all. Pennywise is one scary clown, a creature with red greasepaint stripes that trail from his eyes to his leering lips like bloody tears. The first time you see him—in the movie’s genuinely unnerving but also poetic opening, which hews closely to King’s beautifully written first chapter—he’s so scary you wonder if you might be in for a masterpiece. But by the tenth or twelfth—or perhaps twentieth?—time he shows up, the novelty has worn off. Muschietti relies too much on your garden-variety jump scares and now-standard special effects, things like ghoulish limbs twisting every which-way and innocent figures shape-shifting into malevolent ones. As always, the horrors you get a close look at are much less terrifying than those that remain unseen.

And that’s the chief problem with adapting any Stephen King novel: Nothing ever looks as scary on-screen as it does in our minds, when we’re sitting alone with a book. With It, seeing isn’t the same as believing.

Dressing the Doctor: A Physician’s Guide to a Classic Wardrobe

Few professions are as defined by an article of clothing as being a medical doctor. In many people’s eyes, the white lab coat is the quintessential representation of medical knowledge, trustworthiness, and authority, but these days, the dress code for physicians has become a shifting landscape.

Like many industries, the concept of a universal dress code among doctors no longer exists. Each clinic or hospital may establish guidelines for what physicians should wear, but the final choice is often confusingly left up to doctors. So what exactly should a doctor wear to work? There are three core perspectives to consider: the employer’s guidelines, your own personal style preferences, and patient perceptions.

Does Physician Attire Really Matter? Study Says Yes

In a nutshell, yes. In the bestselling (if a little controversial) book Blink, author Malcolm Gladwell asserts that a first impression can be created in as little as 2 seconds, or what essentially amounts of a snap judgment. While this book is considered to be “popular science” the central tenet that first impressions are alive and well, and play a serious role in our lives, which is deeply important to the question of why what you wear matters. If you are being judged by your appearance in less than 2 seconds, then altering your attire can give you far more control over your personal image.

For doctors, the first impression and attire question goes deeper, because your choice of profession has established a higher expectation for competence and trustworthiness than other professions. A physician’s work delves into the most private and intimate aspects of a patient’s life, and people are hardwired to look for visual clues to the characteristics they expect to find in professionals that require deep trust.

In fact, the desire for doctors to dress a certain way has been confirmed in a series of studies. A recent University of Michigan review of 30 studies revealed that patients had a clear preference for how physicians should dress in 21 of the studies. In 18 of those 21, patients preferred formal attire or the traditional white lab coat. These preferences differed in emergency, hospital or surgical settings, in which patients expected doctors to be dressed in scrubs for the tasks at hand. The studies also revealed that the age of the patient mattered; Generation X or Y patients were more accepting of casual attire than older patients. That being said, casual attire can be confusing for patients who don’t have a visual way to differentiate between other patients and staff.

Mayo Clinic Professional Dress Code

Mayo Clinic Professional Dress Code

Case Study: the Mayo Clinic

Many medical institutions provide little to no useful guidance about dress codes, including medical schools. The prominent Mayo Clinic, based in Rochester, Minnesota, has taken a different approach. Physicians wear professional business attire unless they need to wear scrubs, as the organization’s “uniform”. They liken this choice to not wanting to see a commercial pilot wear casual clothes to fly a plane. While the policy isn’t universally loved (there will always be some resistance to the cost, formality, and restriction of professional attire), the institution believes the policy helps to “convey professionalism and expertise.”

German doctors often wear all white, down to the shoes

Physician Attire Around the World

The traditions for physician’s attire vary around the world. Though the lab coat seems to be ubiquitous, in some countries other sartorial traditions still stand. In Germany, for instance, in addition to a white lab coat, many medical professionals wear white pants and white shoes. A contrasting shirt and tie are typically the only addition of color. In the UK, like in the US, the standards vary widely and the question of what is the best attire choice for MDs in an increasingly casual society is an ongoing debate. In 2007, the UK Department of Health recommended that MDs not wear ties for reasons of hygiene, which led to casual attire choices that created confusion among patients and even the perception of “untidiness”. Recent research has shown there is little evidence that physician’s attire choices play a role in germ transmission.

If there are strong sartorial traditions for physicians in your country, use the possibilities you do have for personalization, whether it’s the choice of a shirt and a tie, your glasses, or even little details such as a collar pin or clip. If the question of what to wear is open to you, then we suggest you take a closer look at what you want your clothing to accomplish for you. They send a message whether you like them to or not, so why not retain as much control over that message as you can?

Professional Attire Is Better

In summary, it’s safe to say that formal or professional attire is a key way that physicians can convey competence, build trust with their patients, and support the desired image of the institution you work for. Even Hippocrates, the ancient Greek father of modern medicine, believed that a doctor should be clean and well-dressed. It’s probably no surprise that we at the Gentleman’s Gazette agree, since not only are we partial to classic look rooted in a more formal wardrobe, there is also ample evidence that dressing well boosts confidence, productivity, and perceptions of your success.

A classic navy suit will always look professional (obviously, I am not a doctor, but it is just an example of what you could wear if you are one)

Dressing the Doctor: Professional Style Ideas

These days, defining “professional” attire can be tricky. One institution may define the term differently than another, so it’s best to abide by the dress code of your organization if one exists. If a BBE (bare below the elbows) policy is in place for your organization, you’ll need to skip suit jackets and long sleeve shirts in favor of dress shirts with rolled cuffs. Classicly, short-sleeve dress shirts are a wardrobe DON’T, but if you want to look professional and need to abide by BBE, this may be the one and only an exception to this rule.

However, from a sartorial perspective, professional attire refers to a dark 2- or 3-piece suit in navy or charcoal combined with a white or blue shirt, a conservative tie, and black dress shoes with over-the-calf socks. While this definition will always lead to appropriate professional attire, for MDs, that description is a little too restrictive. Instead, consider any 2- or 3-piece suit or a jacket combined with a dress shirt and dress pants to be the working definition of business professional. The pants are key, as chinos and denim, even when paired with a jacket, are not considered professional attire.

Build a Versatile Suit Collection

If you don’t wear a lab coat, like the MDs at the Mayo Clinic, then the suit will be the basis of your everyday attire. If you find that a suit is too formal, go with a combination of odd-jacket and trousers

Invest in a Variety of Dress Shirts

If you plan to spend the day in a lab coat, the dress shirt will be the backbone of your professional wardrobe. Invest in a variety of dress shirts – note double cuffs will make you feel warmer. So if you are in a warm environment, barrel cuffs with buttons are preferable. While chest pockets may seem practical, elegant men usually prefer shirts without a chest pocket because it kills the look.

Now in your profession as a physician, it may come in handy to have a pocket but that is for you to decide.

Invest In Quality Shoes

Most staff at hospitals wears tennis shoes these days for comfort, and that’s ok. However, if you want to put your best foot forward a pair of nice goodyear-welted leather shoes that fit you, will be as comfortable or more, because leather abrorbs your sweat much better, leaving your feet much more comfortable throughout the day.

On top of that, they instantly make you look more competent.  To learn more about quality shoes, please take a look at our in-depth shoe guides.

Regarding colors, all shades of brown shoes are great if you do not wear white pants. If you do, go with a pair of white dress shoes such as this white buck skin model.

Build a Collection of Bow Ties

Most physicians wear neckties because it gives them the proper look expected by most patients. Up until 15 years ago, 90% of the neckwear used to be necktie and just 10% bow ties. In recent years, bow ties have become more and more popular but for a doctor, bow ties are essential because they are more practical than ties.

As a physician you treat your patients and that means you might have to lean over them, be close to them… and in those situations you do not want your tie to dangle around or even worse, touch the patient. The elegant solution for that problem is to wear a bow tie, because not only does it swiftly elevate your outfit but it will also never accidentally touch your patient.

If you wear a bow tie, never opt for the pre-tied version. Instead always tie your bow tie yourself. In this video, we show you how. For more advanced bow tie knots, take a look here. And for a selection of self-tie bow ties suitable for physicians, take a look are this bow tie selection.

Ties

If you are concerned about bow ties being too eccentric, traditional neckties can work as well, but it is important to keep a few things in mind.

  1. For the sake of hygiene you want to keep your tie secure against your body either by using a tie bar or clip or with a vest.
  2. Get a tie that has the right length for your torso. Most men either have ties that are too short or too long. To correct that, they have to tie either huge or small tie knots that do not suit their faces and make them look weird. Therefore, I designed a selection of short, regular and long ties, so you can get exactly the right tie length. If you are not sure what ties to wear, these 12 types work well for doctors.

Don’t Forget to Add Accessories

Especially for men who will wear a lab coat, accessories will be an important final touch for you. If they are allowed (some dress codes discourage cufflinks, watches, or rings) then accessories will be one of the easiest ways to make a statement with your outfits while still appearing to be the utmost professional.

Classic ’30 Rock’ Moments To Help You Get Through The Day

Presidents may come and come go, but “30 Rock” is forever. 

The beloved NBC sitcom created by Tina Fey might have aired its last episode years ago, but it feels just as politically relevant and hilarious today as it did when Jenna Maroney declared she was voting for Osama on an episode of “Hardball.” 

Considering “30 Rock” helped to cement Fey as a TV legend, as well as give Alec Baldwin a mid-career boost that propelled him straight into the White House ― at least the one on “Saturday Night Live” ― it’s time to take a look back at some of the show’s best moments to help us navigate these trying times.
