Morning Recon: 'Post,' Pitti, and Kanye's Brand New Bling

Every day we get up early to scan the web for the best in men's style. And then we go grab a coffee. After that, we sit down and bang out a blog post. Here it is.

Stop the presses. No, really.

And so it began: Post—the first magazine designed expressly for the iPad, cooked up by former Dazed & Confused art director  Remi Paringauxmakes its debut. Around the world trees are heard singing (or is that silicon bleating?).

Esquire‘s Fashion Director, Nick Sullivan, reporting from the front lines of Pitti Uomo, has found that mash-up (oops!) we’ve been waiting for: the Duke of Windsor’s dandyism meets Boardwalk Empire.

Red Wing Shoes opens the doors of its Minnesota HQ to put some faces to the name. “From the Heartland,” an exhibition of workers’ portraits, will run at Bread & Butter gallery in Berlin before traveling through Europe. We get a preview now.

Seeking to end the debate on his style merits once and for all, Kanye gets a new piece of bling—with his picture on it.

Psst. GQ likes it rough. At least that’s what we heard.

Portuguese-born designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista, who replaces Christophe Lemaire (now at Hermès) as the creative director of Lacoste, tells Dazed Digital that he plans to make the brand more “urban.” Wait, more urban than a fortnight in Wimbledon?

And finally: Urban lumberjacks, rejoice! If you’re still looking to drop some of that holiday weight, a new video on the history of Harris Tweed unveils the centuries-old machine that is the key to your redemption: the exercise bike/loom.
