  • Truman Says M Dash

    This is so validating! The buzz is that Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, and Kirsten Dunst all have placed orders for clothing items from the same chain store where I snag all my $29 dollar shirts off the discount rack!Why? Today was the launch of M by Madonna, the first H & M clothing line with Madonna's name attached, which she has also had some hand in designing (she's already had one H & M line to which she merely lent her image.) Sadly, nothing there for us guys!

  • Truman Says Off the Cuff

    How much shirt cuff should a man show from beneath his blazer's sleeves? The Sartorialist frets that "most men in America wear their shirts sleeves with way too much extra length in the arms," with Public TV's Charlie Rose a shining exception to that rule (depicted here in conversation with Rupert Murdoch).

  • Truman Says Wheels for Two

    When DaimlerChrysler announced a couple years ago that they would start selling the microscopic Smart Car in the USA (you may have seen it on the streets of Europe or Mexico), we kicked our heels for joy. America needs an antidote to the SUV!

    Then they said they were developing a special American edition of the Smart - an SUV, in fact. Four doors. High suspension. Lots of room in the trunk. Our hearts sank.

  • Truman Says Fanny Pack, Retooled

    The trendwatchers at Cherryflava anticipate the return of something called the "moonbag" which was apparently a great status symbol in the 1980s. It's sort of like a mini fanny pack, without all the padding - perfect for ipods, cell phones, and rhinestone-encrusted BlackBerrys.
