CLAD, the new online menswear shopping site, in partnership with Esquire Magazine, launched on Wednesday to cater to men aged 25-54 who hate to shop (at least in person). Touted as the “first-of-its-kind collaboration between an editorial publication and an online retailer, we noticed the site is chock full of editorial commerce: “picks” by Esquire Magazine editors, including an advice column entitled “Damn Good Advice.” We found much of the current stock of merchandise ranges from up-and-coming brands as well as established labels in apparel, accessories, watches and footwear, including some really cool denim brands such as Earnest Sewn, Citizens of Humanity and Rag & Bone. If you’re shopping for a guy who likes to dress like men in Esquire Magazine, then step right up.

Eternal denim fave Ksubi kicked off its new flagship store on Chapel Street South Yarra in Melbourne, Australia with an anything-but-ordinary celebration. Guests partied between the grungy, exposed brick walls while slurping up snow cones and drinking from plastic bags filled with vibrantly-hued drinks lit up by glowsticks (great idea, right?). The store’s aesthetic oozes the sort of chill surfer attitude that matches their clothing and, with a name like “The End of the Moon,” it’s only fitting that the centerpiece of the space is an American flag planted firmly into our most famous natural satellite. Blazing new horizons, indeed.
