The Killers' Brandon Flowers Tells Us What He's Wearing in Quarantine
 
Destiny has been kind to The Killers. The new album has moments every bit as magical as "Mr. Brightside," including the singalong-ready "Caution," where Brandon Flowers belts, "the winds of change are coming over me." Then there's the deeply romantic "Dying Breed," the Tom Petty-esque cruiser "Blowback," the monumental "My Own Soul's Warning," and the album's definitive statement on "My God": "My God, just look who's back in business." And then there's Flowers himself. Nearing 40, he's still every bit the sharply dressed frontman, known for sporting everything from a black moto jacket and combat boots to a Dior feather blazer. In photographs for the new album, he wears a white tux and a cowboy hat. It works, even better than you might expect. But that's not his only style move nowadays. We caught up with Flowers over the phone to talk about staying productive during lockdown, Levi's jeans, and why he (like all of us) is fated to dress like his father at the end of the day.

The 5 Dress Shoes You Need to Know in 2021
 
A great pair of dress shoes isn't just a worthy investment, it's a necessity. (Yes, even now.) Sure, sneakers have their place, but there are times when even the best of 'em just won't do. Whether it's a wedding or a funeral, a job interview or a meeting with the head honchos from corporate, some occasions demand footwear that's as refined as it is timeless. Although it's definitely been a while, someday soon the time will come to bust out the sweetest pair of dress shoes in your arsenal again, and when that moment arrives you'll want to be prepared. Luckily, there are options out there for every style. And when it comes to price, don't be afraid of laying down a few extra bucks if you're able.

44 Years Ago, Pumping Iron Captured the Creation of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Real Time
 
Forty-four years ago, bodybuilding wasn't much more than just a marginal underground subculture—an obscure freak-show circuit populated by jacked-up guys in Speedos and slathered in baby oil showing off their impossible physiques in front of half-filled VFW halls. There wasn't any real glory in the sport. No big paydays or purses. It was just another fringey demimonde desperate for something (or someone) to help it crossover into the mainstream. In 1977, it finally found that something in an American documentary called Pumping Iron…and it found that someone in a cocky, charismatic Austrian on the cusp of becoming a global superstar named Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here, Chris Nashawaty inspires your next rewatch. Read More
