Style Notes: Menswear Blog 'Four Pins' Is Shutting Down; Congress Bans Microbeads in Cosmetics
Ring in the weekend with a little style news.
Popular menswear blog Four Pins, a Complex magazine-owned style site, will shut down in early 2016. In a (sassy) statement to the press, Complex had the following to say: "We have decided that, after four years of pummeling the Internet with the most fire 'fits, biggest ethers, skin-melting roasts and having yanked the souls of the fuccbois out of their lifeless bodies, the future of the [sic] best menswear site ever conceived in the long and sordid history of the internet is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯." Four Pins adds to the growing list of suffering menswear mags, including Details and GQ. [Racked]

The bill to phase out their use was passed unanimously. [WWD]
