Daft Punk’s fourth studio album Random Access Memories officially drops on May 21st 2013, and in gleeful anticipation here’s Menswear Dog’s loving tribute to the most stylish robots in the game.
The electronic duo have hooked up with Hedi Slimane of high fashion house Saint Laurent this time around to outfit them in one-of-a-kind couture smoking jackets. The hardware is certainly over-the-top but these dudes always know how a suit should fit because these rigs are tailored to perfection.
Here’s a link to the first single and video, Get Lucky featuring fellow style pioneer Pharrell Williams.

Joining in on the unanimous fashion boner that Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby has garnered, here’s Menswear Dog’s take on the opulent classic.
The movie itself is more style than substance but that’s perfect for us because we’re not a movie blog. Baz Luhrmann goes over-the-top decadent in this rendition, but makes sure to pay attention to all the little details that make fashion bloggers go gaga. From collar pins to pattern-mixing to masterfully tailored 3-piece rigs; this is less a movie and more a moving mood board for the roaring twenties…and we’re ok with that. It opened nationwide this weekend so check it out.

You’re gonna hear a lot of noise about baseball jackets this Spring and every brand that know’s what’s what has their own version. It’s basically an extension of the varsity jacket trend that’s everywhere right now in a lighter weight and built for warmer weather. We’re particularly feeling this Members Only version with a denim body and cigar-colored leather sleeves. Get your game on.

Mvsic To Our Ears
Remember when the M in MTV stood for music? Yeah, neither do we. But that’s exactly what our favorite new website, mvsic.net is hoping to achieve. It’s a simple concept; a website that provides a constant stream of music videos. But these aren’t just your run of the mill dance hits featuring Pitbull; these are highly curated music videos that run the gamut from artsy, to trippy, to haunting, to beautiful, to everything in between. It’s the perfect solution when you need to throw something on the computer during parties, or just have it playing in the background while you pretend to do work.
The site was started in 2012 by Martin Rack and Dominic Frohlof with a simple proposition: resurrecting music videos. Needless to say, we’re hooked. The site is still in its infancy but we’re excited for these dudes and support what they’re doing. Keep it up fellas!
Dress Up Your Denim, Dress Down Your Suit
There’s no easier way to dress down a stuffy outfit than with a denim jacket. The combo brings a sense of casual ease while still looking put together. Despite what JT says, sometimes it’s just not appropriate to show up in a full suit. Loosen the tie to complete the look.
