Why You'll Be Wearing Shorts Before You Know It

Sandals in a Snowstorm

There’s a lot to make fun of when it comes to New York Fashion Week, and I say that as someone who still genuinely enjoys the hubbub. The craziest thing to me is that street style is still a thing, and that photographers continue to stop traffic to get a shot of someone else’s outfit. This doesn’t happen any other time in New York — not at parties, not at restaurants, not on sidewalks, not in stores. It’s part of what makes this eight-day stretch so much of a circus.

And these so-called street style stars? They never seem satisfied to wear the clothing and accessories appropriate for the season it actually is.

Last season, there was a surprise September heatwave, but that didn’t stop editors and bloggers and “influencers” from wearing leather jackets — LEATHER JACKETS — and boots in the 95-degree heat. This season, there was a snowstorm, and on the coldest day, I saw women with their jackets draped over their shoulders. There’s still snow on the ground, but I’ve spotted several pairs of sandals outside.

My gut reaction to this has always been: These are fashion people — fashion experts, if you will. If they can’t figure out how to put together a cute, seasonably-appropriate outfit, what hope is there for the rest of us?

Then a coworker challenged me to think about this a little differently. Sure, wearing sandals in February is stupid; we can all agree on that. But maybe the over-the-top enthusiasm for next season’s clothes are actually more relatable than I initially thought. Don’t we all kind of do this, to a lesser degree?

This weekend, I stopped by COS, a brand I love that just so happens to have a store located directly on my route home. All of the fall and winter stuff was on sale, but spring! Spring is what was taunting me. Linen pants! Sleeveless shirts! Short-sleeved dresses! I usually only buy in season, but my warm-weather switch was ON. I had zero interest in buying any of the cheap sweaters I’d most likely wear for the next three months. Instead, I bought a white button-down shirt specifically because I was picturing how it would look with shorts.

The thing is, when I went to the shows today, I still had my puffer coat on. And boots. And a hat. It’s cold out there! I’m excited for my new shorts-and-shirt outfit, but I know I’ll have to wait a bit. Accumulating a few things I’m really pumped to wear and brainstorming new looks is part of the fun, too.

Meet the Longhairs, a Global Community for Guys With… Long Hair
Guys with long hair.

“It takes a few years to grow it out,” Chris Healy tells me on a call. “Once you have long hair, it’s a part of your identity.”

As the longtime owner of a gorgeous mane, Healy has navigated the pitfalls of that identity. “Up ‘til now you’d have to go to the women’s haircare aisle to find hair ties and other products,” he explains. “It’s a little bit embarrassing. You’re trying to hide the hair ties in the shopping basket with an oil can and a football. It’s an awkward, uncomfortable experience because they’re all really made for women. So we set out to create not just a product, but a community.”

That community is The Longhairs, which Healy, 35, and cofounder Lindsay Barto, 31, started in December 2014. The two have their own digital marketing agency called Round Two Creative Group. A few years ago, they hit on the idea for a new business, which they would call Hair Ties for Guys. Both were in the process of growing out their hair at the time and realizing the trials and tribulations that went along with that. They conceived of and wrote up a commercial before they even had any products to sell.

Since they had no product for which they needed a commercial, they decided to launch a website first, with four blog posts and an inaugural holiday party called “Long Manes and Candy Canes” to celebrate. “Our audience has grown considerably. It started with two, which is both of our moms,” Healy says. The Longhairs now gets more than 22,000 unique visitors per month, and it has a robust email list and a YouTube channel with almost 12,000 subscribers. On the site, Healy and Barto go by the handles El Rubio (the blonde) and El Moreno (the brunette).

Healy, who lives in San Diego, is a bit of an evangelist on the subject of men with long hair. He speaks and writes about the subject with sweeping grandiosity, and while some of his lines are delivered with a smile in his voice, I immediately get the feeling that he’s dead earnest about his topic. “We’re just two guys who really fricking believe in this idea,” Healy says. “If we had to say something about our brand, I’d say it’s genuine.”

Just One Thing
The Featherweight Jacket That’s Gotten Me Through Winter

Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Jacket, currently on sale for $59.99

I moved to New York in 2015 from California. I needed a coat for my first big boy East Coast winter, and fell in love with one from Uniqlo’s first collaboration with Christophe Lemaire. It kept me very warm.

Somewhere in between the winter of 2015 and the winter of 2016, I hastily took the jacket off and dropped it on a lit candle. The lapels are now singed beyond repair, as is my heart. So I started this winter wearing another Uniqlo coat: the Ultra Light Down Jacket (currently on sale for $59).

It really is that light, but more impressively, I discovered over the past couple months — through snowstorms, polar vortexes, and bitter winds — that it keeps me really warm despite being paper thin. I started wearing it in the early stages of winter, and planned to get something heavier once we got deeper into December and January. But I didn’t need to. Even in single-digit temperatures I’ve worn it with just a sweater underneath and didn’t feel like I was going to die. In my approximation, that’s a pretty outstanding accomplishment for a jacket that I can bunch into a grapefruit-sized ball. —Cam Wolf, menswear editor
