WHAT A MAN!
You want to be classy, but you don’t want to lose your edge either,” from Adam Levine in your interview last month more or less captures the urban male zeitgeist. More on what makes him achieve that balance between classiness and edginess would have made the interview really rock. It is a lesson many guys could do with in wishing to assert our masculine charm in nonaggressive ways. Of course, a spray and step of Y helps keep the pheromones in check. Meanwhile, nuggets abound in the spotlight on Hugh Koh, and his brand-building efforts for Pestle & Mortar. “All you have to do is ask,” should be loudly emblazoned on the brand’s next season of Ts. Such a proposition encourages reaching out, engagement, and conversation, and what could be more constructive than that? Onward, forward!
