THE MALE BAG By Anthony Michael Respected and impressive — that’s the essence of being august. Want to feel august this August? Partake in these indulgences.

Ashford Castle ashfordcastle.com

There are hundreds of castles in Europe, but few have made the successful transition to five star resort. Ashford Castle, a historic 800-year old fortress in western Ireland, did just that 80 years ago and ever since has played host to royalty, presidents, and celebrities. For years, Ashford Castle has landed on the Best of the World lists for luxury lodgings, and, with a $100 million renovation under its belt, this behemoth has decided to celebrate its octogenarian anniversary of luxury lodging with a special hotel experience for its guests. And, let’s face it — getting to Ireland is only as difficult as getting to Montauk on a Friday in August.

Here’s what you get: • A two-night stay in one of the castle’s beautifully furbished Corrib rooms • Dinner for two in the George V dining room, featuring a period menu with a modern accent, using locally grown produce • A one-hour hawk walk at the Ireland School of Falconry • An hour-long horseback riding lesson for two The princely sum? $2,215 pp/night.

Mizzen + Main mizzenandmain.com Mizzen + Main did it! (And by “it” we mean innovated performance fabric menswear.) Invoking the sturdiness of a sailboat’s mast, Mizzen + Main’s insanely comfortable shirts are designed for motion. With a hoard of crisp traditional looks, these togs are stretchy and feature lightweight, flexing fabric with superior quick-dry properties. A perfect option for, say, a visit to a castle.
