The New York Times

Happy Thursday, everyone! There's no better time than now to dig into some Thursday Styles! And, really, people...drink deeply. Savor each morsel. Because you never know when Rupert Murdoch will set his sights on devouring your favorite mid-mid-week Times features as well. MURDOCH HUNGERS! This week, Tom Ford confounds, '80s retreads frighten, James Bond inspires, and we're all apparently getting more and more alienated from our children with every passing hour.

  • A Healthy Mix of Rest and Motion
    Everyone's doing interval training, now, getting fit and toned with the blessing of medical sciences. So go fast. Then slow. Then fast. Then slow. Later, we'll forget all about this. But then there'll be another article in the August 16, 2012 edition of Thursday Styles. And we'll go back to going fast. Then slow. Then fast...
  • No Store Is a Hero to Its Valet

    Horacio Silva troops out to the sanctum sanctorum that is the new Madison Avenue Tom Ford flagship to peep the pricey menswear, only to discover that it's pretty, "exclusionary," and staffed by people who at times don't seem to know what they're doing. Making them excellent candidates for a feature story in Portfolio, natch.
  • Beware the Afterglow

    Why is everyone getting oranger and oranger? Because, unlike cosmetic tanning products, the health risks of natural suntanning apparently served as an effective check on everyone dyeing their skin the color of a muppet.
  • No Aston Martin, but a Limo Will Do

    Some Casino Royale trends we hope don't become essential parts of Prom 2007: parkour, teardrops of blood, and, especially, angering Judi Dench.
  • No Hiding From Alice Roi

    What no one's talking about is that it's our children who will have to take responsibility for the de-Roi-ification of SoHo.
  • Neon's Back. Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    "Moreover, the current revival of black tights, black vests, winkle-pickers, porkpie hats, white-rimmed Ray-Bans, skinny jeans, skinny ties, skinny belts, crimped hair, asymmetrical hair, lace gloves, shoulder pads, pleated pants, bandage skirts, metal mesh and checkered Vans should have made the point that the '80s was a decade rich in ideas so bad they were good enough to repeat. But neon?" Thanks for the warning. Now: what's this about "winkle-pickers?"
  • My Daughter, the Burger-Flipping Penguin

    Kids are learning to lower tomorrow's expectations...TODAY! seeking out online outlets that ready youths for the mundane, profitless existence their parents couldn't bring themselves to warn them about. Thank you, interwebs!
