From their suggestions, we culled a list of recent and upcoming books that are smart, fun, and thoughtful—so you won’t feel like your brain is melting in the sun."The Dan’l Webster Inn and Spa

In a column that answers persistent questions, a fashion-industry vet explains why men's pants and women's pants are sized differently: "“Historically, men’s sizing followed the measurement system because of the nature of men’s tailored clothing, which originated with Savile Row in London.

Women were more likely to either make their own clothes or use less established enterprises like seamstresses to make their clothes."Culture, Etc.Moon
