Passing Judgment: being that he is headlining the Fashion Rocks concert, it's no surprise to see Justin Timberlake grace this year's FR mag cover--and he is "gracing" with all the svelteness of a high class waiter. [The Cut

A happy belated Birthday to the ever
inspiring and always fabulous Tim Gunn!  At 55 he's still working it
like he owns it, because he basically does.

If you have, like $18,000 to blow on just whatever, you can get your very own pair of vintage (and we mean vintage) Levi's from the 1890's that were found in a mine in the Rand Mining District, on the Mojave Desert,. California.  Sounds like a totally legit investment. [Kottke]

Did they or didn't they, did they or didn't they?  In what is likely only a brilliant publicity stunt on Marc Jacob's part, everyone is still guessing whether he wed is three-month Brazilian boyfriend this past weekend.   It's almost too much to handle, but you bet your bottoms I'm going to do my best to keep up.

It looks like someone's shelf life is about to expire; it's being reported that Jil Sander is up for sale.  The label was purchased by a private equity fund in 2006 (which bodes so well for a designer label), but they are claiming fatigue of "waiting for Jil Sander’s bottom line to match its critical acclaim."  [WWD]

Vanity Fair has just released it's annual best dressed list.  Topping the list of men? David Beckham. Coming in at number two? His bulge. [The Cut]
