THE INTERNET—It's a literary edition of Rackedwire today. First up, luxury fashion and lifestyle publishers Assouline will be guest blogging for Club Monaco all month, mining their considerable archives to bring Tumblr fodder to the rest of us. Their first post is an August 1900 menu from iconic Parisian restaurant Maxim's. Chic. [Facebook]
THE INTERNET—Second, The Paris Review would like to remind you that the link between literature and style didn't die with Hemingway, thank you very much. If you are in the mood for a journey through New York's most cerebral men's shops, load this piece up on your iPad. At the very least, it'll give you something to impress your boyfriend with next time you take him shopping. [The Paris Review]
