It is our job to report that 80s fashion is, in fact, back.  But, fear not, cast your painful fashion memories of nights at The Palladium and unfortunate prom nights aside.  A few years time has proven helpful in editing out the good trends from the way bad, meaning you won't end up looking like Flock of Seagulls.

David Beckham and his now infamous bulge (it's like a Kielbasa down there) drop our jaws again for round two of his Armani Exchange underwear campaign...[Towleroad]

...unfortunately the same cannot be said for perennial over compensator, Mario Lopez. [Towleroad] [dlisted]

Pharrell Williams funked up Harvey Nichols last night with the new-season collections of the sportswear lines he co-founded in
2005 with Japanese design star NIGO: Billionaire Boys Club and Ice
Cream.  There was chilled Moet, Mr Chow canapés and...Mischa Barton. Nice to see she's getting out.  Ya know, making friends. [British Vogue]

Stockholm-based footwear label Gram Design, has conceptualized a shoe that is not only a sneaker but also a hiking boot.  Maybe I'll get a pair, head out to a mountain path and perhaps run into a bear or two? [Refinery 29]

Axe, who continues to have us believe that their body sprays and washes are meant to seduce hot horny girls, has debuted their rather phallic male body washer The Axe Detailer Shower tool; and we are yet again convinced they're ultimately working for the boys.  [The Moment/NYT]
