Full Metal Jacket
Question
I just saw "Quantum of Solace" and was really digging the clothes on Bond. I especially loved this jacket he had on during a gun-slinging scene. I know Tom Ford did the suits, but this doesn't seem like his style. - Simon, Dallas, TX
 
Answer

After some brutal, covert interrogations, we discovered the jacket in question is part of the Spring/Summer collection for Y-3, Adidas's high-style brand designed by Yohji Yamamoto. According to our sources at the label, the slim-cut zip up is cut from lightweight cotton (but apparently, is not bullet-proof) and will be available in stores shortly after the new year. While they refused to talk price, we'd estimate it to be in the $400 to $500 range based on their current price-points. Godspeed, sir. Available at Y-3 on January 15th, by calling 917.546.8677.

The Expertly Packed Carry-On

Question

What should I pack for my first business trip?

- Matt, OH

Answer

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
