New Track from Feist, "How Come You Never Go There?"

How can you not love Feist? Folk meets smoky, jazzy rock meets sweet vocals. Check out the first (and BRAND new) track from the forthcoming album, Metals, out on Oct. 4. It's a win.

How Come You Never Go There by Feist

Classic WASP Style: Ocean House RI, Pringle Sweaters, and Thierry Lasry Shades

Because who doesn't love a game of croquet and a twinset?

The Place

A morning jog up the hilly, wooded, harborside streets of Watch Hill, RI, will take you to the grand Ocean House staircase. Not only are the beaches near tropical, Ocean House itself is immaculate. Set atop a bluff, the dining rooms feel like you're on a giant ship because all you see for miles is water all around you.

The Sweater

We have Pringle of Scotland to thank for all things argyle. The brand was founded in 1815, in Hawick, Scotland, and continues to produce timeless cashmere and wool sweaters. Below is actress Jean Simmons in a Pringle twinset, circle 1950.

And, the Next Must-Have Sunglasses

The moment you've all been waiting for, ladies and gentlemen. Though Ray-Ban Wayfarers will forever be in our hearts and Selima for J.Crew revived a classic name in eyewear, every iconic style needs a rest sometimes. Not to fear. There's a new name in town, and it's Thierry Lasry. This is what's up.

DJ Goodwill + Hook N Sling = good things. Would this be an appropriate wedding song?

She say, "Hello, mister. Pleased to meet you."
I want to hold her; I want to kiss her.

Rick Mereki's Cool: Move, Learn, Eat

Short film director Rick Mereki brings a very, very cool revelation of the world in movement, lessons and food. He cites "3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage" as the resources for these films. Below is one of his most recent films, "Learn," uploaded to Vimeo yesterday.
