Why Is There So Much Modern Architecture In The NRA’s New Ad?

For decades, authoritarian regimes have waged war on modern architecture and the philosophy it embodies. A new ad proves it’s still a target.

If you came across a video featuring Frank Gehry‘s frenetic Disney Concert Hall, Renzo Piano’s towering New York Times building, John Portman‘s postmodern Westin Bonaventure Hotel, the Art Deco Los Angeles Times building, and Anish Kapoor‘s reflective Bean sculpture, you’d probably assume you were watching a survey of some of the past century’s most memorable modern architectural landmarks.

The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

There’s no denying that a new jacket is the most exciting purchase a man can make. A good outer layer can completely transform the look of an outfit. Not to mention that it will get more wear and be seen more frequently than almost any other item of clothing. This author never tires of collecting coats and jackets and given the endless variety of styles out there, it’s unlikely he ever will. As with any garment, there are those outerwear styles that stand out against the rest. Styles that have been cemented as beacons of menswear heritage, imitated countless times and recognised the world over as true classics. Here we count down the greatest men’s jackets of all time and offer some styling advice for each one.

The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

M-65 Field Jacket 

Since its introduction for use by the US military in (you guessed it) 1965, the M-65 jacket has gone on to become one of the most popular styles around. It’s been reimagined many times over the years by pretty much every label imaginable and it’s no wonder why; the M-65 is quite possibly the ultimate casual outer layer. Pair it with a T-shirt, indigo denim and white trainers for a super laid-back weekend look.



The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

Leather motorcycle jacket
 

Schott NYC made history in 1928 when it introduced the Perfecto motorcycle jacket to the market for the first time. The style really caught on after it was made famous by the likes of James Dean and Marlon Brando, solidifying its status as a menswear classic. This one is definitely best worn with a heavy dose of swagger, as well as a Breton top, slim black jeans and black Chelsea boots.



The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

Trenchcoat 

Originally an optional item of dress for the British army officers in the First World War, the trench coat didn’t take long to find its way into the fashion marketplace and become one of the greatest styles of the last century. Humphrey Bogart helped in bringing the trench coat into the public eye in Casablanca and as a result, it is now regarded as a real classic piece. Try teaming one with a roll neck jumper, slim jeans and brown wingtip brogues.



The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

Parka
 

We may associate it with mods, Liam Gallagher and Kenny from South Park, but the parka coat predates all of them significantly. This style of jacket was invented by the Caribou Inuit who would wear it to shield them from the cold when out seal fishing. Since then it has been reimagined in countless different styles and is now an undeniable winter wardrobe staple. Wear it with smart, cropped trousers, an oxford button down and desert boots for a contemporary spin on the classic mod look.



The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

Coach jacket 

If it’s a lightweight summer jacket that you’re looking for then you could do a lot worse than this classic piece of America sportswear. These light, collared jackets were picked up by hip hop groups of the 80s and 90s, most notably NWA, who thrust them into the public spotlight. The coach jacket is now firmly rooted as a streetwear staple and is a great choice as a light top layer for the warmer months. Try one in a dark shade with a white tee, selvedge denim and a pair of suede runners.



The Greatest Mens Jacket Styles of All Time

MA-1 Bomber
 

You may be beginning to notice a pattern emerging here in terms of just how many popular outerwear staples were championed by the armed forces. Well, the bomber jacket is no different. The MA-1 was originally designed for the US Air Force in 1950 to act as an intermediate weight flight jacket to be used all year round. In the decades that followed it found a home with skinheads and punks, until it eventually filtered into the mainstream. Today it is regarded as a classic piece of outerwear and looks effortlessly cool worn with a crew neck sweater, fitted joggers and white leather trainers.

The 4 Subcultures That Shaped Modern Menswear

The 4 Subcultures That Shaped Modern Menswear

Subcultures, we’ve all been part of at least one at some point or another. You might look back on it now and cringe, but it’s impossible to over-exaggerate the impact that these fringe groups have had on the way that all of us dress today, whether we realise it or not. Alongside music, fashion is one of the defining elements of any given subculture. It’s a way of telling the world of your affiliations and interests without even having to open your mouth. This means that different groups need their own unique looks. Over the years, fashion’s ravenous appetite for appropriation has seen these cultural uniforms chewed up and spat out more times than we care to mention, but some of the elements have stuck, caught on and completely altered the way that the rest of us dress. These are the ones which have had, arguably, the biggest impact.

The 4 Subcultures That Shaped Modern Menswear

Punk 

The anti-authoritarian dress-code (if you can call it that) of the punks consisted of ripped jeans, leather and denim jackets, piercings and outlandish hairstyles. They topped off with more badges, pins and patches than most of us would know what to do with and wore it with attitude. Today, all these elements of punk fashion remain in some shape or form. Next time you’re in shop looking at a pair of heavily distressed jeans, ask yourself, “would these still be here if it hadn’t been for the punks?” The answer is probably no.

The 4 Subcultures That Shaped Modern Menswear

Casuals  

One of the most influential, yet often overlooked subcultures in terms of how we dress today were the casuals. The movement was started by football supporters in the ‘80s who took to wearing expensive European designer clothes, Adidas trainers and jeans rather than their teams’ colours. You only need to take a look around to see the level of their influence. Track jacket, jeans and Adidas Gazelles is a pretty standard outfit, right? Well, it wasn’t before the casuals came and put their stamp on menswear in Europe.

Mod 

The mods were famed for their elaborately decorated scooters, parka coats, slim fitting tailoring and Caesar cuts. They ruled the streets during the 1960s and in terms of fashion, were probably one of the coolest and most well-presented subcultures of the all. Anyone who’s ever seen Bradley Wiggins or Paul Weller before will be able to tell you that mod fashion is still very much alive and kicking today. Even if you don’t follow it to the letter, it’s more than likely that you’ve buttoned your polo shirt all the way to the top before, or draped a parka over your suit in the colder months – you’ve got the mods to thank for that.

The 4 Subcultures That Shaped Modern Menswear

Hip-Hop 

Hip-Hop fashion in the early days consisted of tracksuits, trainers, baggy clothes and somewhat over the top jewellery. Although the look has morphed and is vastly different today (just look at a photo of A$AP Rocky and Run DMC side by side), it still retains many of the key elements and the rest of us have a lot to thank Hip-Hop fashion for. Oversized T-shirts, sportswear and bling are all still hugely popular today. Hip-Hop made it acceptable to don sports clothing as everyday wear, something which would have been considered highly unusual beforehand. Would we have had athleisure without Hip-Hop? We don’t think so.

Editor’s Notes: The day has finally come. After what feels like an eternity since Louis Vuitton debuted its Supreme collab at last season’s menswear shows in Paris, the official lookbook is here and the product is actually dropping. We’ve even heard rumors that Supreme stores will be getting the drop on July 14. Stay tuned for more news on that front.

Louis Vuitton recently announced the collection will launch at dedicated, global pop-up stores around the world, and Sydney was the first stop.

Drake & Draymond Green Are Brutally Roasting Each Other & It’s Hilarious

It’s fair to say newly crowned NBA Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green does not dig Drake’s fashion sense.

During Monday night’s inaugural NBA Awards, host Drizzy (and the entire Twittersphere) took aim at the basketball superstar’s ambitious teal jacket and shorts combination he wore to the ceremony.

Never the type to back down, Green continued his not-so-serious feud with the Toronto Raptors ambassador at a post-show press event, claiming that “Drake talking about fashion does not work.”

“I can’t wear anything that he thinks is OK; I don’t expect him to understand. It’s fine. If he approves, you’re all wrong, all the way wrong,” Green shot back. Previously, he had flamed Drake’s choice in footwear, mocking his Clark’s Wallabees in a series of Snapchat videos. Around the same time, the pair had become embroiled in an Instagram meme war.

Seth Rogen & Dominic Cooper Talk Nudity & Near-Death Experiences While Eating Spicy Wings

To promote their show Preacher, Seth Rogen and Dominic Cooper appeared on the season finale of Complex‘s “Hot Ones” — and let’s just say they can’t handle the heat.

The convo is pretty relaxed early on — Rogen talks about his favorite gas station fried chicken and how he smokes his own meat. He also opens up about being a sneakerhead, and what it was like to wear Marty McFly’s Nike Air Mags prototype at the Oscars.

But as the wings get hotter, so do the questions. As the duo are essentially writhing in agony, Cooper mentions seeing James Cordon naked, while Rogan describes the time that Martin Starr almost killed him. Finally, they pick an amazing NSFW hot sauce name. Watch the video above.

Now, read why Preacher is the weirdest and wildest show on TV.
