The Four Ways to Approach Binge-Watch Shows

Tomorrow, the all-consuming, all-entertaining House of Cards returns to Netflix for its third season. Since they first flooded their way onto our screens, Netflix, Amazon and any other release-it-all-at-once studios have made it so any sense of restraint or... needing to get out of the house sometimes just flies out the window. We’re going to choose not to judge that (because we’ve consumed a few of these shows in potentially unhealthy doses ourselves).

All we’ll do is break down your four approaches to binge-watching.

Spring Forward: Your Head-to-Toe Transitional Guide

Sure, there might still be snow on the ground now, but by next week it will be March—and just slightly warmer. And the week after that... just slightly warmer, even. And the week after that... still March. But from here on out, it can only get more spring-like with each new day.

So, to help you transition your wardrobe as the ground thaws and flowers begin to bud, we’ve put together this handy head-to-toe guide.

Timepiece Tuesday: The Pebble Time
Timepiece Tuesday: The Pebble Time

You may remember  back when we covered the Pebble Steel—the first smartwatch attempting to look like a real watch—but it looks like Pebble has gone back to their techie roots with their latest watch.

Today they unveiled the Pebble Time, a totally revamped smartwatch with a color screen, slimmer profile and new interface. All aimed, presumably, to compete with  the Apple Watch.

With over a million in funding raised in less than its first hour on Kickstarter today, it’s worth taking a closer look at what all the fuss is about.

This Week’s Must-Haves
Department of Corrections: Blazer VS. Sport Coat

As near as we can tell, there’s some kind of unstoppable, nefarious force at work that’s been trying, and succeeding, to grandfather in the use of “blazer” to refer to what are actually sport coats. But unlike the spineless wordsmen at Oxford English Dictionary, who caved and accepted the definition of “literally” that actually means “figuratively,” you shouldn’t stand for it.

Put simply: not all blazers are blazers.

Here’s how you can be on the right side of sartorial nomenclature.

The Real (Style) Winners of Last Night’s Oscars

As expected, there were plenty of good-looking tuxedoes on display at last night’s Oscars. But there were a few unexpected standouts, a few successful risk-takers—like David Oyelowo’s Bordeaux tux—and a few not-so-successful ones (ahem, Jared Leto). So we’re naming the real winners of last night, regardless of whether they took home a golden statuette.

And the winners are...
