Your Perks: 1) Rugged briefcases, weekenders and messenger bags made of canvas. Give it up for canvas. 2) Soft button-ups that are practically begging to be worn to a rooftop date. 3) Handbags from Céline. Yes, this is the kind of thing Mom might want. Okay, definitely wants.

Your Bar Cart Desires This Stuff

Stylish Men in Unstylish Professions

But every so often, a man in a supremely unstylish profession comes along and, well, dares to be stylish. We’re talking about the Aziz Ansaris of the world. We’re talking about these guys right here.
Yeezus, <em>Serial</em> and Other Things We Kind of Want to See as Musicals
American Psycho: The Musical is the latest in a long line of movie adaptations to find its way to Broadway. Which got us thinking... there is plenty of other solid material out there that could be given the song-and-dance treatment. Like Jeb Bush’s campaign, Serial and, well, we’ll just throw Yeezus Christ Superstar out there.
Coffee in Gummy Form. Sure.
The way we see it, you’ve got two distinct ways to get your caffeine fix.
Option A: Drinking coffee as usual.
Option B: Get into these chewable cubes of cold brew.
Two very distinct ways.
