It's not that interesting really, but apparently, GQ Magazine and Park & Bond seem to think differently.

The other day, they asked if they could delve into a typical day in the life of Stan, and I of course had to oblige the friends. So I called my good friend and artist Brian J.

Just last night GQ and Park & Bond launched the CHICEST holiday pop-up shop just around the corner from The Standard, NY. From December 8 until December 18, the two men's fashion powerhouses will feature “GQ Selects,” an assortment of products handpicked from the pages of the magazine by the editors; GQ’s “Best Stuff of the Year,” as featured in the December issue; and a specially curated selection of products from Park & Bond.

The best part? If you're staying with us at The Standard, New York, I've arranged for you to get 15% off all your holiday purchases! Just show them your room key, and there you go. You can use the savings to buy me a martini. It's the least you can do. I mean, really.

GQ at Park & Bond - 414 W. 14th Street. Closed Monday and Tuesday. 11am to 6pm Wednesdays-Fridays, 11am to 7pm on Saturdays and 11am to 5pm on Sundays.
