1. Despite the drama surrounding boy wonder Justin Bieber as of late, he seems to be keeping it cool in terms of attire. He was spotted in an Acne denim jacket recently that we think makes him look (slightly) more grown up.
2. James Franco is slated to shoot and direct the next 7 For All Mankind campaign, which would make him… the most accomplished sexy young man in Hollywood? Yeah, we think that sounds about right.
3. We love a well-placed back pocket detail on men’s jeans. It’s easy to go wrong with pockets, but the white stripes on this pair of Momotaro medium wash jeans is spot-on.
4.We’re all fawning over this review of the Mih Jeans Marrakesh Kick Flares in black velvet in the office this morning. These look like some seriously comfy (and stylish) fall jeans.
5. Naked & Famous guru Brandon Svarc visits the GQ fashion closet and talks about the craziest jeans he’s designed so far. Glow in the dark, anyone?
