Whether they are scouting San Francisco, their home base, or on a trip to downtown New York, the writer-photographer duo has an eagle eye for well-dressed men and women of a certain age. And each new look comes with an intriguing story. We learn that one octogenarian made her striking mustard yellow shirt with leftover fabric from her seamstress gig and that the couple sporting matching pink hats has been married for 64 years. Another pair in custom-made yellow sweatshirts exercises together every day. Talk about commitment.

A SOFTLY-TWISTED CHIGNON
There's almost nothing that New Yorkers can unanimously agree on, so the rare moments when they find something to celebrate in common are bound to be lit. Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow," the city's current anthem, is not only played every other song on the radio but also sparked an impromptu underground dance party this week in the NYC subway.

In honor of this, we revisited six other times the people got it poppin' underground:
When the soothing tones of Fetty Wap, the Weeknd and a little "Hotline Bling" made being stuck on the E a little better:
Ringing in Day 4 of Love Magazine's 2017 advent calendar series is Kendall Jenner, who shows off her boxing skills in a Rocky-inspired video.
Following Ashley Graham's powerful running Day 2 video and Emily Ratajkowski rolling around in spaghetti for Day 3, Kendall steps into the boxing ring for the latest installment of the video series.
