How Yahoo's Acquisition Could Affect Tumblr's Fashion Community
Today, Tumblr--home of gifs, memes, and NSFW photos--joins the ranks of corporate America: It's just been bought by Yahoo for $1.1 billion. Besides goofy cat videos and loads (seriously, loads) of porn, Tumblr also hosts one of the most passionate, creative, and irreverent fashion communities out there on the internets. So now the question is: How will that community, which so far has thrived on the free-for-all vibe that prevails at Tumblr, be affected by the new acquisition?
Decoding #Menswear: A Handy Guide To Understanding What the Hell Men's Style Blogs Are Talking About
From the increasingly well-documented street style scene outside of Pitti Uomo (it's starting to rival the scene outside any major fashion week venue) to the number of nattily dressed gents we see walking down the street in NYC, there's no question that dudes have been stepping it up in the personal style department. There's even a burgeoning menswear (that's #menswear if you're scrolling through Twitter or Tumblr) clique, comprised of editors at print publications like GQ and Complex as well as bloggers at sites like Four Pins and Selectism and Hypebeast. They are the arbiters of men's style, speakers of the language of #menswear. Yes, they have their own language and we dont' understand at all. Cop some jawns? That dude is sprezzy? Say what?

New Start Up Fohr Card Aims to Bring Bloggers and Brands Together
You know how brands partner with bloggers to create editorial content and capitalize on their influence? And how those brands pay bloggers so they can make a living? Fohr Card, a new start up founded by former Tumblr fashion director Rich Tong, Holly Stair and James Nord (all of whom met through Tumblr), aims to streamline that process for bloggers and brands alike. We chatted with Tong's co-founder Holly Stair about how the project came about, the response from bloggers and brands, and what's next.
Fashion's Most Stylish Guys Give Mark Zuckerberg an (Almost!) Hoodie-Free Makeover for Facebook's IPO
Mark Zuckerberg is having quite a month. The Father of Facebook just turned 28, bought out Instagram for $1 billion and is now facing the most lucrative point in his career: Going IPO on Friday. We’d offer him a congratulatory “poke” but sadly, that option’s no longer available. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the IPO acronym, it stands for Initial Public Offering-- meaning that the company will finally be open to stock holders where the likes of Wall Street—-and even you!—- can purchase a part of the social media company. But with the estimated $100 billion that’s supposedly coming his way, we’re wondering whether the Harvard dropout will invest in a new wardrobe. Will he finally change out of his usual uniform consisting of dowdy college hoodies, sweat-drenched Adidas shower flip flops, and tattered baggy jeans, into something more uh, dapper? Better yet, the question posed is this: Can all the money in the world transform someone from HTML geek to sartorial chic? Fashionistas can only hope! To give him an extra boost, we’ve enlisted the help of several fashion experts from designers like Carlos Campos, Alan Eckstein from Timo Weiland and Simon Kneen of Banana Republic, to editors from GQ and Esquire, to buyers and the likes to see what kind of advice they’d shed onto Silicon Valley’s hottest star. And regardless of whether he takes our suggestions or not (note to Marky Mark: you really, really should!), happy IPO Day! We’d definitely like to send you a congratulatory poke soon—- this time, live and in-person.
