The 5 best men's bathrobes we tested in 2021

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky The right robe for you should fit well, but it should also last many years. The Parachute Classic Bathrobe is plush, absorbent, and secure, with an adjustable fit. We also tested waffle, linen, and other spa- and hotel-style robes. Nothing says luxury like a bathrobe, and that's the first thing to keep in mind when buying one: They're often not necessary, but they do make self-care and time at home (or outdoors) a little more enjoyable.Purchasing a rob...

Identifying your brand's personality

Years ago, when “having your colors done” was trendy, I thought there might be a story in it, so in the interest of research I sought out a color consultant and handed over my money. There were a lot of charlatans and opportunists in this field, but I lucked out: The color analyst I found was John Kitchener, who had an art-history background and an unerring eye. (He’s still in business, but has relocated from the Bay Area to the Atlanta area.) For what I remember as a not-inconsequential (but...

How to Recognize a Quality Tie in 60 Seconds

One of things that I’m most drawn to about clothes is their texture, their tactile qualities, and this is especially true of ties. I like picking a tie up from the display table in a department store and feeling it. I started this habit way back when I was a teenager and began wearing ties to church. When I’d hold a tie in my hand, I’d intuitively feel for its quality. I never quite knew what it was I was feeling for that allowed me to deduce that a certain tie was high quality or garbage. It w...

Why I’m supporting these brands and their cool Pride month products and collaborations.

I had a long talk with my (avidly LGBTQ+ supporting) teens this week about the overlap between Pride Month and brands.

On the other hand, I’m old enough to remember (as the meme goes) when commercials wouldn’t […]
