Gats & Dogs

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.

“It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such – such beautiful shirts before.” The Great Gatsby, Chapter 5

Menswear dog takes on Gatsby. He’s looking pretty spiffy.

Great campaign by Dove.

Forensic Artist Proves That Women Literally Don’t Know Their Own Beauty

A new addition to Dove’s Real Beauty campaign asks a forensic artist to draw two sketches of women—one based on their own description, and one from a stranger—with shocking results.

Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder. Studies have shown, though that when the beauty in question is a woman’s own, and the beholder’s eye is theirs as well, only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. Dove has long been working toward shifting that paradigm with the alternately lauded and derided Real Beauty campaign. The brand’s latest effort at changing self-perception attempts to do so through eyewitness testimony.

Recently, Dove hired former police forensic artist Gil Zamora to illustrate some psychologically revealing sketches. In a campaign created by Ogilvy Toronto, a series of women described themselves to Zamora in minute detail, from behind a curtain. The artist in turn created composites as though trying to identify a criminal. Next, each participant was asked to describe another woman present. The results are dramatic and sort of moving.

Here’s the full story.

This was the label on a pair of jeans I saw today.
"Perfect fit for breakin’ hearts"
Yea, I didn’t buy them.

Robert Pattinson:“If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.”

Brandon Hall:“The reason girls cant find a good guy is because they look in the wrong places, go to a library. Guys at a party are just looking for the next girl to fuck.”


My friend reblogged this and I couldn’t help but laugh. That’s definitely not a Robert Pattinson quote (it doesn’t even sound like him!) but taken from a piece I believe Rosemarie Urquico wrote.
And this is why the whole world needs to read more.

He really should be on the cover of TIME, considering the line he caused at this past year’s SxSW.

The stats are not at all surprising except for maybe the household income levels. Tumblr seems to appeal to the richest and the poorest, something brands on tumblr should note.
