GNTLMN, a newly launched editorial site and line of limited edition hand-crafted goods, aims to help us all reacquaint ourselves with our inner gentleman. We caught up with founders Wesley Verhoeve and Kyle MacDonald to find out about a few their favorite New York spots as well as their audio and sartorial fall essentials.
Amidst the excitement and competition wrapped up in growing and grooming the best Movember 'stache, sometimes we can lose sight of what this month is really all about: cancer research and awareness.

It would be difficult to overstate the amount of shower time we spend meditating on our next meal (let’s just say it’s a head of lettuce shy of Cosmo Kramer’s hare brained shower food scheme).

Movember only comes once a year, so make it count. Taking pride in that burgeoning 'stache means equipping it with everything it needs to succeed, from a gentle cleanser and conditioner to a wax styler and ample shaving supplies. Here we present a fully-stocked Movember tool kit.
November is all about giving thanks. In addition to the 'staches being grown and rocked to support Movember, Birchbox is also teaming up with The Art of Elysium, a non-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of artists and medically fragile children.
We're lucky enough to be surrounded every day by the women of Birchbox. Beyond their keen eye for detail and great taste, they're also science nerds who can teach us a whole lot about products we never knew we couldn't live without. Today’s edition: Unisex fragrance.
