You probably own J.Crew chinos. But you probably don't own J.Crew chinos in a right-now wide-leg fit. That's about to change. There may be strange things happening behind the scenes at J.Crew these days, but there's one place where strangeness is a good thing for the brand: pants. From wide-leg to loose and relaxed to old man vibes, the go-to below-the-waist trend these days is, roughly: bigger is better.
It's barely fall but the Belgian designer's ode to N.Y.C. in knitwear form is emerging as a must-cop for the fashion-inclined. Hot on the heels of the beloved swallow-embroidered polo shirt by Stella McCartney—worn by everyone from Luka Sabbat to Aziz Ansari to Steph Curry—there's a new menswear garment that stylish guys are already flocking to: Raf Simons' twist on a novelty N.Y.C. tee.
When you're wearing a backwards hoodie and your pants are still the story, it's time to talk about your pants. Remember when Kanye West called out Wiz Khalifa and his cool pants? Of course you do. But if there's one guy whose below-the-waist accomplishments are worth 'Ye's and your eyes, it's Jaden Smith. His trouser game is from another planet. (Which makes sense, seeing as Jaden Smith is certainly not of this world.) On Wednesday, Smith was spotted wearing a bright hoodie — backwards!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
