Some monkey business from Ingrid Schmidt ...
Out with the goat, in with the monkey! The 2016 Chinese Lunar New Year (February 8 through January 27, 2017) has been dubbed the year of the fire monkey, associated with the ninth zodiac animal sign and the element of fire. In celebration, luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Paul Smith, Michael Kors, Estée Lauder and Chopard have created special designs dedicated to the mischievous monkey.

As menswear grows less formal, L.A. is emerging as a new style capital. (Just ask Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane.) Here’s how to ace its smart take on casual, even if the nearest palm tree is 1,000 miles away.

David Bowie 's half-century career will be defined, as it well should be, by his music output. But it can't be altogether untangled from his signature look — or rather looks, each one telegraphing the arrival of a totally different Bowie: Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane (with the lighting bolt across his face), the Thin White Duke, the minimalist black-and-white version from his Berlin period.

Post Cubbins: Hat 514 - Sir Laugh A Lot Edition
I like knit caps and I cannot lie ... What's probably the last lid of 2015 is a gray, 100% acrylic, made-in-China knit cap with all-caps embroidery that reads (nay, commands ) "LAUGH A LOT." This pate-warming cap, which was in the "elf bag" my sainted mothe...

Mattel announced today that Barbie, the pint-sized paragon of feminine pulchritude will soon be available in three new body types: tall, petite and curvy. The bid for Barbie inclusiveness had barely finished crossing the lips of the morning news anchor when my better half asked aloud: “But what if you’re tall and curvy?” underscoring the reality that four body types might be, at the very least, four thousand too few.

Music aficionados know that walking between the bins of CDS and vinyl records at Amoeba Music on Sunset Boulevard is always bound to turn up something of interest, but Tuesday night took things to a whole new level, with the sales floor of the independent record store feeling like a fame-meets-fashion fever dream. In the center of the room, Red Hot Chili Pepper Anthony Kiedis elbows his way down a raised runway — past a vintage Super Mario pinbal...

Story
Tagline
Adam Tschorn makes a living wrangling words and stringing them together.
Introduction
Adam Tschorn is currently a staff writer at the Los Angeles Times where his coverage of fashion, style and popular culture most often appears online at All The Rage and in the hard copy of the Sunday Los Angeles Times Image section.

He's been covering menswear since 2004 and wearing it much, much longer than that. He holds a BA in philosophy and an MA in journalism, which has prepared him perfectly for watching fashion shows and asking: "Why?"
Bragging rights
Survived 30 Vermont winters, able to write authoritatively on the death of the man cave and avant-garde ballet (at the same time), knows the difference between a lectern and a podium, and where the cardigan sweater got its name.
