ON THE SLY

Rambo: First Tweet

Maybe you never realized you wanted, needed or cared for a Sylvester Stallone Twitter feed. But when you get the chance to read about BBQs with the Governator, workouts with Bruce and, um, curiously playful bantering with Seacrest, you take it. You also take the occasional “Yo.”

CLOSE KNIT

Fall Gear, Imported from the Netherlands

Ah, Amsterdam. Home to a saucy red-light district. Curiously strong “tea.” And, of course, smartly made cable-knit sweaters. Thanks to a new Dutch brand, at least one of those is now available online. No, not the tea.

Introducing the Apple Cider S’more
CIDER HOUSE RULES

The latest development: they’re coming to that most iconic of fall drinks, apple cider. Now mixed directly into your marshmallow, chocolate and graham-cracker treat.

PREP SCHOOLED

Sequel to the Official Preppy Handbook

Alex P. Keaton. JFK. Those guys from Dead Poets Society. All have one thing in common: legendary heads of hair. Also: they were preppies. Your field guide to the species: the legendary 1980 tome The Official Preppy Handbook, which inspired the creation of J.Crew. Now, 30 years later, you get a sequel: True Prep, with new rules on summer. Namely, that it’s still a verb.
