    We Men Have Dysmorphia We don’t really know what we look like. Sad, but true. Not understanding one’s body shape, or perhaps how one’s shape has changed over time can also lead to ill-fitting clothing. Men often think they are a size that they are not.I worked in the fashion...
    ciao, bella Hey everybody, let’s look younger. Have you tried this cream and that makeup to stretch out your wrinkles, and give your skin that glossy, timeless (read: teenage) shine? No? Well, Lancôme is cool with all that, it seems. Last week, they announced momentous news: the ageless, stunning Isabella...
    We hear a lot about the lack of natural, well-crafted beauty products available in the US. This may be worth investigating.

    In a flat world of shopping options, this caught our eye. What do you do after you’ve created an amazingly successful clothing line and it blows up in a not-so-good way? If you are Scott Sternberg, who did Band of Outsiders, you pause, you think big and you think...
    FANTASTIC MAN: For Young and Old, Issue 27 In spite of all the digital channels vying for our time, there is still a place for a well-designed, well-printed, thoughtful magazine. True that a lot of what is shown is not particularly practical, but that’s not the point — fashion magazines,...
