Although LEGO watches for children have been around for some time now, a collection geared toward adults has remained conspicuously absent given the brand’s popularity among people of all ages. That’s why we’re happy to hear the Danish toy company finally got around to designing a series of wristwatches which feature as many fully-swappable parts as the kids’ versions. The collection is officially being dubbed the LEGO Watch System because pieces such as the bracelet links and bezels can be interchanged with each other. Both analog and digital watches are included as part of the first series, with some featuring additional functions such as day/date complication, chronograph and calendar. Look for the watches to retail between $85-$185 USD beginning November 2013 here. [See More]

We probably don’t need another trailer for David O. Russell’s American Hustle since the first one is already pretty much perfect. I’ve seen it play in front of quite a few movies over the past couple of months and I still haven’t gotten sick of it. On the other hand, I understand the need to explain the plot a little bit more and if it’s a chance to throw in some ELO, I really can’t complain. Here we have the second trailer for American Hustle starring Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale. Although the trailer doesn’t reveal much, apparently the movie is based on the FBI Abscam operation that place in the 1970's. American Hustle is set to hit theaters on December 25th. Enjoy.

GQ recently sat down with the gorgeous model, tapping ever-present photographer Terry Richardson to handle the risqué photoshoot. Playing both the “good girl” and “the hottest b*tch in this place,” Ratajkowski will soon be flexing her acting chops on a big screen near you – she’s been cast by David Fincher opposite Ben Affleck in the highly anticipated adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s contemporary thriller Gone Girl.

Based in the heart of San Francisco, the Levi’s Tailor Shop reclaims old vintage fabrics from the brand’s longstanding canon and recycles them into contemporary pieces.

Using these tools, a diverse gang of tactile craftsmen translate their love for making into unique, exclusive garb. Filmmaker Jay Carroll took an opportunity to talk to Jared, Laura and Rachel – three craftsmen of the Levi’s Tailor Shop – getting an in-depth look at their work. Enjoy his findings above.
