There’s an old saying that hindsight is 20/20. But foresight is 20/20 too. In fact, foresight has always been a foundation of what we do at Andrisen Morton. Each trip we make to the men’s clothing markets—usually six times a year—our goal is to curate a collection of fine clothing and accessories that will catch your eye, speak to your personal style and become part of your wardrobe. The catch is, we’re making these decisions 9–12 months before you’ll find the clothing on our racks and shelves. The ability to foresee what merchandise might appeal to you that far into the future isn’t magic or an accident. It’s the result of a lot of hard work and a tireless commitment to genuinely know each customer as an individual. Our constant vision is to be the best men’s specialty store in America by sharing our passion for people and the best merchandise. We may never get there, but we’ll never stop striving to reach that goal. We are truly honored and humbled that you choose to make this journey with us. Craig, Lindsay, Dave and John

ANDRISEN MORTON Dressing Up DENIM

I cherish my denim jacket. Is there a way I can wear it—as well as my favorite pair of jeans—to go from weekends to work? The good news is that denim today isn’t what your dad used to wear. Modern fashion has not only embraced denim but has expanded its use as it’s showing up everywhere from Hollywood movie premieres to business-casual workplaces. The red carpet has few fashion rules, whereas date nights and office settings still have loose guidelines to follow. For starters, be sure jackets fit properly—nothing too baggy or too tight. When considering length, the bottom hem should hit at your hips. A neat denim jacket can work in a business-casual environment, and in many cases it can be worn as a replacement for a sportcoat. For example, wear it over a checked, button-up shirt or a polo that’s paired with dress chinos or khakis. A pair of high-quality jeans will make every guy look good. An indigo or deep blue-gray pair works in almost every setting, as long as the jeans are neat, clean and close-fitting (not skinny). Dress them up with a button-up shirt and either a vest or a V-neck sweater on top if there’s still a chill in the air.

GETTING SNEAKERS Right

My closet is full of leather and suede sneakers. How can I incorporate them into my attire for the office? Every day can feel like casual Friday—even if wearing a suit is still the norm. Go ahead and wear sneakers with tailored clothing, as long as your suit has a slim silhouette and the trousers end just above your ankles. In fact, it’s cool to show off a little ankle too. Leather and suede sneakers should always be clean, meaning free of dirt and excessive branding (save the logos for the basketball court). Your best bet is to stick to a neutral color palette—pare it down to black, brown, navy and white—as it’s easier to cross the line between casual and business with a timeless design.

SUITED for Summer

8

|

The weather is getting warmer but I’m not ready to give up wearing a suit. What are my options this season? Most of us are naturally more laid-back in warmer months, especially when it comes to fashion. But that doesn’t mean you should forget about style. Linen and seersucker are the ultimate fabrics for summer suits—they’re both lightweight and breathable, and they’ll look great at an outdoor party. If you’re concerned about wrinkles, which we all know are a feature of linen, try a linen/cotton or linen/wool blend. Still wearing a suit to the office? A great option is a high-twist or fresco wool suit in a lighter shade of blue or gray; this material allows for maximum airflow and will wick away moisture. In a business-casual environment, an unstructured sportcoat in a cotton/linen blend or a jersey knit is a smart alternative that’ll make you feel and look cool.

ANDRISEN MORTON

Sneaks FOR SPRING Dad bod might have a negative connotation, but dad sneakers? They are all the rage. These chunky shoes that resemble the ones you or your father probably wore back in the day to mow the lawn or run errands have become a trendy staple in stylish men’s (and women’s!) shoe closets for years now. Such sneaks span any generation gap and pair well with just about anything, from streetwear to suits, and prove that uncool pieces can actually be cool again. Wear yours to break up denim-on-denim, put on a colorful pair to liven up an otherwise neutral ensemble or add sophistication to a casual everyday T-shirt-and-jeans look. Just keep in mind that chunky sneakers look best when worn with loose, relaxed-fitting clothing— otherwise, the proportions will seem awkward and contrived. Stop by Andrisen Morton to shop dad sneakers by some of our favorite designer brands like Tod’s, Magnanni and more. While old-school dad kicks have come back in fashion, crisp white sneakers are a thing of the past. The new way to wear the casual footwear is scuffed up—on purpose. Many luxury men’s shoe designers like Golden Goose, available at Andrisen Morton, feature sneakers in their collections that are distressed intentionally, relaying the message that you’re not only chill and relaxed, but also fashionforward and confident. Sullied-up sneakers look great with jeans and a T-shirt, joggers and athleisure and, well, just about anything on the casual end of your wardrobe. And best yet? Worn-looking sneakers are perfect for the guys who don’t have a ton of time to think about their outfit, but still want to stay sharp and put-together without even trying. Win/win.

Enter THE FRAY

Here at Andrisen Morton, we sell luxury men’s shirts from dozens of brands made and sourced directly from Italy, and we’re adding a new one to the fray. Enter Fray, an Italian men’s shirt company that for more than half a century has been creating impeccably crafted button-up shirts for sophisticated gentlemen. Made with quality cotton sourced from Italy and handcrafted by the best-of-the-best artisans in the country, a Fray shirt will feel like a second skin the minute you put it on. Additionally, each collar and cuff is tailored to the customer to create a garment that is uniquely you. Come visit us in store to see what the fuss over Fray is all about.

GIN Is In We’ll never turn down a good vodka or tequila, but we’re in a new decade now, people. Let’s imbibe on spirits with more exciting tastes and flavors. Enter gin, whose primary ingredient is the berry juniper, which makes it taste mostly like pine although the beverage often contains other subtler botanical and floral notes. The spirit experienced the largest gain in global alcohol consumption from 2017-18, according to the IWSR, the U.K.’s International Wine and Spirits Record. By 2023, 88 million 9-liter cases of gin are forecasted to have been sold globally! There are three types of gin recognized here in the United States: London dry, which is the stuff found in a gin and tonic or a martini; Old Tom, which is a bit sweeter in flavor; and genever, which has a more robust flavor similar to that of whiskey. And the ways to indulge in gin are endless; drink it on the rocks or neat, stir it up with tonic water and a lime or cool cucumber for a classic G&T, or make like Snoop Dogg and sip on gin and juice by mixing the alcohol with your fruit juice of choice. Cheers!

Denver’s BEST BBQ We have the Denver omelet and Rocky Mountain oysters to our name, but the smoked meats here in the Mile High City are not exactly slacking. The BBQ scene has been up-and-coming in Denver, and there’s no better time than spring and summer to indulge in this casual, finger-lickin’-good cuisine. Here are the Andrisen and Morton families’ picks for the best BBQ around the city:

GQUE BBQ You can’t go wrong with any of the meats on the menu at this joint in Westminster, including pork, brisket, ribs and turkey, all available on a sandwich or by the pound. They also offer signature sandwiches like The Meltdown—with brisket, onion rings and cheese—along with chicken wings and delectable side dishes such as apple slaw, mashed potatoes and mac & cheese. GQue BBQ, 5160 W. 120th Ave. Unit K, Westminster, 303.379.9205, gquebbq.com ROAMING BUFFALO BAR-B-QUE Locally sourced meat is the name of the game at husband-and-wife-owned Roaming Buffalo, where specialties include lamb shoulder, bison short ribs and lamb shank, all from Colorado. Patrons can order meats by the plate, by the pound or between a bun, or come for the weekly specials, such as

burnt ends or brisket tacos. Oh, and don’t leave without indulging in a comfort-food-style side. We recommend smoked sweet potatoes, collard greens and/or grits. Roaming Buffalo BBQ, 2387 S. Downing St., Denver, 303.722.2226, roamingbuffalobbq.com SMOKIN’ YARDS BBQ Most of the meats at Smokin’ Yards are smoked with oak wood, giving the pork, brisket, chicken and more a nice, robust flavor and rich, dark brown color. You can order yours on a sandwich, in rib form or via a combo platter with your choice of meat(s) and side(s). Add even more flavor with one or all of the spot’s four signature dipping sauces. Smokin’ Yards, 900 W. First Ave., Denver, 303.284.3349; 2736 Colorado Blvd., Idaho Springs, 303.567.9273, smokinyards.com

Smaller SWIMWEAR? This season, you’ve no excuse to look like you are swimming in your swimwear. Finally, brands like Fedeli are offering swim trunks for men in lengths somewhere between the tight spandex speedo and the unflattering below-the-knee board short. Swim trunks with shorter hem lines and narrower cuts are back with a vengeance, and there’s no need to be afraid of showing off some more leg (or thigh, in this case). The shifting shapes of trunks is nothing as drastic as those tiny running shorts circa the ’70s. These trendy pieces are neither too short nor too long, too tight nor too baggy, and are perfectly flattering even if you don’t have legs like Cristiano Ronaldo. Stop by Andrisen Morton, where we can ease you into this new-again swimwear trend and help you determine which slimmer swim trunks best fit

MAN OF STYLE

Matt Sayers, Andrisen Morton’s visual director, talks about creating visual voice, staying ahead of trends and writing rhymes. By Bruce Abels

Matt Sayers wanted to become an artist and writer. Growing up in Bergen County, N.J., he was a unique, quiet kid with a creativity smoldering in his heart. At age 16, Sayers started in retail, progressing through sales, management and ultimately into the visual side of the business. In his early 20s, he crossed the bridge to work in Manhattan as a visual merchandiser for Levi’s and British fashion retailer AllSaints. Then Sayers hit the big time, joining luxury Italian brand Brunello Cucinelli to oversee visual merchandising for its U.S., Canada and Mexico retailers. We were lucky to persuade him to head West to become our visual director. Andrisen Morton: What does a visual merchandiser actually do? Matt Sayers: (Laughs) Make nothing into something. I consider myself a visual marketer, so it’s hard to describe. My role is to facilitate financial gain for the store and the staff. AM: Visual marketing? MS: Yes, merchandising is marketing. I persuade people to notice, stop and shop by enticing them visually. AM: What is your strongest skill? MS: Attention to detail, which is essentially paying attention to what you don’t know you need to be looking at. AM: What’s the difference between style and dressing a store? MS: Dressing the store is superficial. It’s like putting on underwear everyday—you know it goes there. Style comes after the underwear. How do you break it down, create character, break it up, make it

in unison with one another, make it unified but still let it stand apart? It’s much more difficult with so many brands being sold here. AM: Do you have an overriding philosophy about visual merchandising/marketing? MS: There are no rules. At the end of the day, it’s just clothing. But respect what I do. AM: What’s a typical workday? MS: I come in and evaluate the floor, then make a plan. Where are our dead zones? Where are our hot spots? I say I play chess. It’s sort of like a Rubik’s Cube. You shift one thing and it affects everything else. I want to find my third step first. To keep with the game metaphor, it’s also a bit like Scrabble. AM: How do you stay abreast of current trends in visual merchandising? MS: Pinterest. Seriously. I used to read all the magazines but now Pinterest is the place. AM: It’s obvious you’re not a suit-and-tie kind of guy, although the store sells everything from Kiton to Samuelsohn. Does that matter? MS: When I interviewed with Massimo Caronna, the president of Brunello Cucinelli, his first question was how could I come from a company like AllSaints to a Cucinelli. I said it’s the same thing; that my job is to help you sell something. It doesn’t matter if it’s cleaning fluid or cashmere. I learned so much at Cucinelli and that sensibility is in my blood. Of course, I’m still learning and progressing. AM: How has your role at AM evolved in the four years you’ve been here? MS: Initially, my time was to be split between visuals and serving customers. We quickly realized the store would benefit most if I focused on visuals. The

goal was to shake things up to find AM’s own visual voice, rather than copy department stores. To make us look so unique, high-end and luxury that Neiman Marcus wants to emulate us. Since then, I also do the fashion and product photography for our seasonal shoots and social media feeds. AM: Did you study photography? MS: I taught myself as a hobby. Then some years ago, I started posting fashion and lifestyle shots of my wife and I on Instagram for fun. People loved it (Editor’s note: @theemattsayers has 9,383 Instagram followers as of press time) and other companies actually started asking me to shoot for them. So it was a natural extension for me to not only plan the AM photo shoots, but actually do the shooting. AM: We also understand you are a rapper? MS: I write and record all my own stuff. I started writing poetry and Haikus when I was 10. Around 13, I got into hip-hop and rapping with all my friends. I was doing open mic stuff, cyphers and all that stuff. Writing was/is a way for me to deal with my inner turmoil. But it wasn’t until a few years ago that I discovered who I really am, and I have been writing and rapping a lot in the last few years. I need it to help balance my life and divert myself into the spiritual creative part of my life. (Editor’s note: Matt’s rap name is Hemlock and he has over 7,500 followers on SoundCloud.) AM: What other unique things do you do? MS: I’m a certified welder. AM: Have you and you wife put roots down in Colorado? MS: Colorado is a beautiful state that has shown us a way to have a work/life balance. We love it here.

EDDIE REDMAYNE This British actor with a multi-hued range also cuts a smart figure on the red carpet. Not bad for a guy who’s color-blind. By Haley Longman Alphabetically, Hayden comes soon after Hawking. Of course, that doesn’t assure British actor Eddie Redmayne will cop the Best Actor Academy Award for his performance as radical activist Tom Hayden in this year’s film The Trial of the Chicago 7. Just because he won the 2014 prize for playing physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything doesn’t mean he’s a lock. Still, wouldn’t paired Oscars look nice on the mantel? Score Redmayne’s accent and defined cheekbones on the plus side for a style icon; his freckles, slender build and so-called “bedhead” maybe not so much. But, likely or not, this talented Brit has combined an already-impressive roster of thespian credits (he just turned 38) with a rep for choosing impeccable clothing and wearing it impeccably. Edward John David Redmayne grew up in London and attended the Jackie Palmer Stage School for the performing arts from the age of 10. He got his professional start in theater on London’s West End and did stints on television before landing roles in films such as The Yellow Handkerchief and The Other Boleyn Girl (both 2008). On stage in London, in 2009, he played a fictional assistant to painter Mark Rothko in a play fittingly titled Red. Three years

later his star was rising, with a stint in the film My Week with Marilyn and his breakout role in the star-studded Les Misérables in 2012. By then, the world knew Redmayne could act and sing, but the fellow had a knack for style too. British fashion powerhouse Burberry hired him for its spring/summer 2012 campaign; in the years following he was named to the “best-dressed” lists in both Vanity Fair and GQ, became an ambassador for the Swiss watch brand Omega and was chosen as Business Insider’s Most Stylish Man in the World Right Now. Yep, the entire world. The Brit has been touted for his classic, cool style, his innate ability to look put together on even the most mundane occasions, such as when traveling from LHR to LAX, as he often does. Redmayne has a penchant for crewneck knits over slim-cut button-ups and is seldom seen without his signature structured collar, whether via a lapel on a jacket or a cowl on a sweater. And because some dress codes can be as unpredictable as London’s weather, layering is another of Redmayne’s everyday style go-tos; he’ll often wear a cardigan under a jacket or blazer and simply remove the coat should he feel overdressed. For more formal events, each of his many suits—most often by Prada, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford or Burberry—is tailored to fit him precisely, to the point of “almost hugging” his lanky 5-foot-11-inch frame. “I’ve always worn suits, so I’ve always felt at ease in them,” he told Men’s Health a few years back, perhaps recalling his teenage years at Eton College, where the dress code required starched collars and tailcoats. “My dad is a dapper man,” said Redmayne, setting up a sly self-mock. “He wears suits for work, so maybe wearing them makes me feel subconsciously like I have a proper job.” Then he slipped the Freudians more ammo: “A well-cut suit feels like armor. If it’s tailored to fit, you feel strong.” Strong in showbiz, just possibly, is taking Oscar home before you’re 35; Redmayne was the first male born in the 1980s to win the statuette. And that was no fluke; he nabbed another nomination the following year, controversially cast as a transgender woman in The Danish Girl. He also stars in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, a spin-off of Harry Potter, and gets top billing in 2019’s period drama The Aeronauts. If he shines in Aaron Sorkin’s Chicago 7, he’ll be on the way to Hollywood immortality. Yet Redmayne doesn’t follow all Hollywood norms—he has no personal stylist, for example. Instead, Hannah Bagshawe, his publicist wife and the mother of his two children, has been dressing him for the red carpet. That’s why he informed the U.K.’s The Mirror back in 2016 that for his sartorial splendor “I can’t take much credit. “I’m color-blind,” Redmayne said with winning candor and humility, “so occasionally I’ll go for things that are slightly outlandish, and she’ll temper me back into the world of taste.” Oscar-winning British actor Eddie Redmayne is most comfortable in a suit—and a very slim-fitting one at that. “I like to feel the strength of the garment,” he says.

ISAIA IDEA A third-generation CEO explains one of the great names in Italian menswear. By Karen Alberg Grossman Founded in Naples in the 1920s, Isaia is a luxury lifestyle brand for men with personality and taste. The brand’s Italian artisans still handcraft each garment in the Neapolitan sartorial tradition, though now it’s reinterpreted in a contemporary way. At the helm of this exclusive business is Gianluca Isaia, the third-generation CEO, who is famous in the menswear industry for his warmth, charm and creative sense of style. His mission: to help men discover their own personal style in clothing that’s modern, comfortable and very cool. We chatted with Gianluca recently about fashion, business and living life to the fullest. What are you proudest of? “That in 2020 we still hold true to our traditions as a family-owned company but are always looking to what’s new and contemporary. I’m also proud that, in my parents’ honor, we’ve launched a School of Tailoring in Casalnuovo near our factory. The school teaches the next generation of tailors the sartorial skills needed to continue the tradition of Napoli.” To what do you attribute Isaia’s success? “We live by passion. We take our craftsmanship very seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We like to have fun and enjoy life, and it shows in everything we do. It’s important to me that all our associates wake up in the morning and look forward to going to work.” Can you discuss changes in suit styles for 2020? After getting as tight as they can get, are fits loosening up a bit? “Because we serve countries around the world, we have models that vary in fit. And while we’re always experimenting with new

initiatives, we believe our current fits cover the needs of our customers. So we’re not implementing any drastic fit changes at the moment. Globally, our customers appreciate Isaia’s approach: traditional tailoring with a contemporary twist. I want them to always feel comfortable in our garments.” So what’s new for spring 2020, and what will you be wearing? “This season, we took inspiration from the colors and décor of the Museum of Capodimonte in Napoli and the green area of the surrounding Real Bosco. We’re showing many incredible variations of pastels. Personally, my spring 2020 wardrobe includes T-shirts with Neapolitan references, knit shirts, foldable jackets to carry on my travels and, of course, sandals!” What will Isaia’s collection look like for fall 2020? “It’s inspired by underground Naples, a world of its own that reflects the intense and alluring appeal of the city’s history over the past couple of millennia. Isaia interprets this atmosphere through a palette of dark and earthy tones, inspired by a range of textures.” Isaia is known for quirky advertising. What’s your objective here? “We aim to tell stories with our ad campaigns. It’s not about just showing a suit or jacket that we’re trying to sell. It’s about communicating an idea. One of our most beloved campaigns was one we did in 2008 right after the U.S. stock market crash. It featured a man in a well-designed suit, hunched in a corner crying. It captured the sentiment of the time, showing a ‘real man,’ one who was not afraid to show emotion.”

Could you have been happy in a different line of work? “I’ve always been passionate about my work and I hope to inspire those I work with to bring the same level of dedication, creativity and appreciation for Napoli’s sartorial tradition to everything we do. However, I spend much of my time in Capri (especially in summer), and I’m always entertaining and hosting. If I had to choose another career, I would become a hotelier and open a boutique hotel, perhaps on Capri. I’d create an environment where interesting people from all over the world could come and experience the best wines, art, food, etc., in a luxe but eccentric environment.” How would you describe your personal style? “Truly my own and a bit irreverent. I often wear sandals with my suits!” How does Italian style differ from American style? “It’s all changing now. American men used to be more conservative when it came to silhouette, color, etc., but it’s become more fluid, which is great. American men are becoming more interested in cultivating their own personal style.” What are your top tips for men to look their best? “Be comfortable in your own skin. Be confident. Don’t try too hard to be perfect. (There is no such thing!) Make sure your clothing fits you properly. And if you’re not sure—ask for help! Try not to follow any rules, but if you must, heed only those that speak to you and ignore the rest.”

HOW SUITE IT IS

WHO COULD RESIST THESE IMPECCABLE SPACES IN LUXE HOTELS AROUND THE WORLD, DESIGNED BY FASHION’S GREATEST NAMES? High fashion meets luxe lodging? When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. The two worlds are similarly driven by an adventurous spirit and a quest for the unexplored; perhaps it was inevitable that they’d link up and share each other’s dazzle. Thus top fashion brands are creating hotels— or transforming hotel suites—that bring the aesthetics of international travel up a notch big enough to make even jaded jaws drop. For an experience “memorable” doesn’t even quite describe, plan a stay at one of these suites designed by fashion industry leaders.

CHRISTIAN DIOR St. Regis, New York Parisian fashion house Christian Dior and the famed St. Regis Hotels have a storied history—they first collaborated on St. Regis Paris’ original Dior Suite in 1991 (while the brand’s founder died in 1957, the Dior style and sensibility lives on). And in 2011 they worked their magic together again, this time in New York, on an exquisite one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom guest suite sprawling across 1,700 square feet. The elegant space, which also includes a living room and a dining room, pays homage to the French designer’s Parisian ateliers and features many of Dior’s classic touches: There are Lady Dior cannage patterns on the Louis XVI-style furniture, accent details of the brand’s iconic bows, Dior’s fashion sketches on the walls and a plethora of the house’s signature shade, “whispering gray,” throughout. The Dior Suite starts at $10,500 a night, but remember that includes butler service, and you’re just a few blocks from the Christian Dior boutique on 57th Street. The Dior Suite’s sophisticated décor is a sea of gray, purple and beige, inspired by the designer’s Paris ateliers. The stunning views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue, though, remind guests they’re in the heart of Manhattan.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG Claridge’s, London

The glamorous, century-old Claridge’s hotel has been the gold standard of luxury in London for fashion royalty, like Audrey Hepburn and Victoria Beckham, and literal royalty (from the U.K. and elsewhere). And Claridge’s became even more iconic in 2011 when long-time guest Diane von Furstenberg designed a series of rooms, a junior suite and the two-bedroom Grand Piano Suite at the unique boutique hotel. The latter is decked out with bold, contemporary patterns most often seen on DVF’s famous wrap dresses—here they’re scattered across rugs, window treatments, chairs and accent pillows—while photographs taken by the fashion icon herself on her trips to Europe, Africa and Asia adorn the neutral walls. It stays true to its name with a grand piano, plus a black-leather-topped private bar and marble fireplace, rounding out the spacious living area. For upwards of $7,400 per night, lucky guests will also get 24-hour personal butler service and unmatched views of Mayfair, London’s most exclusive neighborhood.


GIORGIO ARMANI Armani Hotel Dubai, Dubai Why design just a suite when you can design an entire hotel? That’s what Giorgio Armani did when he added “hotelier” to his résumé in 2010 with the opening of Armani Hotel Dubai, the 2016 winner of the coveted World Luxury Hotel Awards. The curated yet minimalistic space, which also boasts a branded spa, restaurants and an Armani gift shop, features many of the Italian designer’s signature details: Eramosa marble floors, zebrawood panels in the guest corridors and custom-made Armani Casa furnishings in the suites. The hotel’s location is larger than life too; Armani Hotel Dubai is located in the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, within walking distance of The Dubai Mall, the world’s second largest shopping mall (based on total area, not leasable space), and overlooks the iconic Dubai Fountain and Dubai Opera House. Pricing for the decked out two-bedroom Armani Dubai Suite ranges from $6,500 to $10,200 a night. If the simple, muted palette and textured fabrics weren’t already indicative of the Armani aesthetic, it’s all in the details; Armani monogramming is featured on almost everything in the guest rooms, from towels to sugar cubes.

Set a course for crossing the high seas in high style, and drop anchor at one of these five unforgettable yacht clubs that do our planet proud. By Daria Meoli YACHT CLUB DE MONACO

Monaco Is it any surprise that one of the most exclusive yacht clubs is in exclusive Monaco? Here, Russian power brokers rub elbows with Chinese titans of industry and European aristocrats. Many prestigious private yachts fly this club’s burgee, including one-quarter of the world’s 100 largest superyachts. This chic Mediterranean city-state dazzles with European glamour, fashion and motorsports but is also considered the world capital of yachting. A descendant of the Société des Régates, formed by a group of Monégasques (that’s Monaco folk) in the 1800s, the Yacht Club de Monaco was officially founded by Prince Rainier in 1953. His son Prince Albert II has been its president since 1984. Today, the club brings together more than 2,000 members from 66 nations. The architecture of the clubhouse resembles an enormous yacht docked along the foothills of Monte Carlo, with deck-like terraces that offer uninterrupted views of the regattas at sea and F1 Grand Prix races on the inland track. Besides a stunning swimming pool and an upscale seawater spa and wellness center, the members-only 1909 Restaurant offers fine cuisine in a picturesque setting. If you want in on the glamour of this club but your superyacht is in the shop, head to the adjacent Wine Palace, grab a glass of Bordeaux and cozy up on the piazza to watch the glitterati stroll by.

YACHT CLUB COSTA SMERALDA

LYFORD CAY CLUB

Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy The scene at this Sardinian club can be summed up in three superlatives: super-exclusive, super-sized and super-fast. The winds around this port make the club one of the favorite destinations of the nautical jet set. Affiliated with the Italian Sailing and Italian Powerboat Federations, the club has been organizing regattas since 1972, specializes in races for superyachts and is the scene for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup. Costa Smeralda was founded in 1967 by the Aga Khan and his partners to serve ultra-wealthy vacationers. It features al fresco dining, a members’ lounge and a bar as well as first-class accommodations. While the club is a gathering place for business execs and financiers, all are welcome to indulge themselves in the original Acqua di Parma Spa inside the clubhouse.

Lyford Cay, New Providence, Bahamas In a time when boldfaced names can’t escape the media glare (or Instagram), this club on the western tip of New Providence offers a refuge for the weary wealthy. In fact, landlines rule in common areas, as mobile phones are not permitted. Founded in 1966 by Canadian businessman E. P. Taylor, the club is located in one of the world’s most affluent neighborhoods. For members who have included Henry Ford II, Sean Connery and the Bacardi family, this Bahamian landmark offers much more than a place to park your yacht. For starters, there’s access to whitesand beaches, an 18-hole golf course and an impeccably decorated clubhouse, recently redesigned by Tom Scheerer. At the heart of Lyford nightlife is Little Club, one of two on-site restaurants, where members indulge in cocktails and world-class cuisine.

CAROLINA YACHT CLUB

CRUISING YACHT CLUB OF AUSTRALIA

Charleston, South Carolina, United States The Old South’s history is palpable here in Charleston’s Battery neighborhood, named for the site’s Civil War coastal artillery battery. Plantation-style architecture, such as pillars supporting shade balconies and palmetto trees swaying along the Cooper River, evokes the era when the club was incorporated in 1888. The club is a stellar venue for two things: sailing and socializing. No other yacht club in the area can rival this one’s access to the picturesque Charleston Harbor. As for the socializing, the North Property is home to the dining facilities and includes a large ballroom. In July, the club hosts the Carolina Yacht Club Invitational Regatta, which gathers 250 competitors. The race is riveting, but the real excitement is the annual Commodore’s Reception, held on Saturday night for members and sailors.

Darling Point, New South Wales, Australia Serious sailors are acquainted with this legendary institution. Every Boxing Day for the past 75 years, it has hosted the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, known as the Mount Everest of ocean racing. This club appeals to competitive sailors who want to drop anchor and share a yarn about the day at sea. Considered the continent’s most prestigious club, it was founded in 1944 by enthusiasts who met on a regular basis to organize short races. Today, the club maintains a connection to yacht clubs of yore. While all are invited to the casual Sydney Hobart Bar, the members-only Coasters Retreat lounge has a strict dress code and is adorned with models and sailing relics of races gone by. A handy getaway from city life, the club is located between parkland and inner harbor waters with views of Sydney’s skyline. SPR IN G/SUMMER 2020 THE SU B STA N CE OF ST Y L E

SHEEP

One of the many pleasures of a trip to Bandon Dunes, the wildly popular golf resort in southern Oregon, is to gather with your partners in the pub after your rounds and argue over which course is the best. The resort is home to four 18-hole layouts—Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails and Old Macdonald—all of which are among Golf magazine’s “Top 100 Courses in the United States.” Ask a dozen golfers to rate the quartet, and they’re apt to give you a dozen different rankings. Everyone has an opinion, and no one is wrong. Friendly debates are just part of the fun. And they’re about to get even more entertaining, because a fifth course at Bandon is in the works. It’s called the Sheep Ranch, and according to Golf, it might just be the finest of them all. Never mind the name; the Sheep Ranch, which will start welcoming guests on June 1, is not a ranch. Never has been. At one point, though, it was grazing ground for sheep. That was in the early aughts, when a rough-and-tumble layout was created on the site. To say the place was bare-bones is an understatement. It had just 13 holes, with no set routing; you could play the holes in any order that you liked. There was no irrigation system, only a fire truck for watering greens. A small flock of sheep served on the maintenance staff, chomping on the layout’s unkempt fairways. It was, in short, a quirky course, with an air of mystery around it. To arrange a tee time, you called the property’s caretaker and set up a rendezvous at a dirt road, where, for a greens fee of $100, he’d unlock a gate and let you in. But that was then. And it’s not how things will work at the Sheep Ranch anymore.

partner Phil Friedmann—decided it was time to elevate the Sheep Ranch into a full-blown, world-class course. To orchestrate the project, they hired the celebrated design team of Coore & Crenshaw. Scrapping the original makeshift layout, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw dreamed up a stunner in its place. Among the striking features of the Sheep Ranch is the way it seizes on the drama of its setting. The property includes roughly a mile of coastline, more than any of Bandon’s other courses, with nine greens located along the bluffs. Everywhere you look are ocean views, except when you turn inland. At that point, what you see are artfully shaped fairways, threading their green fingers through gorse and ghostly pines. Because the Sheep Ranch occupies a windy site, its design is willfully player-friendly. There are no sand bunkers—only grass bunkers— and the greens are open in front, so you can bound your approach shots low, under the breezes. The routing is intimate, with holes radiating out from clustered tee boxes and a shared green for the third and 16th holes. But the grandeur of the coastline also lends the course an impressive sense of scale. Like most anyone who visits Bandon Dunes, Keiser is often asked to name his favorite course. His answer never varies: He’s equally in love with all of them. Come June, he’ll have one more to love. A ND RIS E N M O RTO N S P RING/S UMMER 2020

Why do we love sports cars? Speed and style no doubt have much to do with it, but it’s that visceral urge to command a beautiful piece of machinery that really drives us to seek out the hottest wheels in which to hit the roads. Now, what if there were a way to achieve that same level of luxurious locomotion on the golf course? Introducing the Garia SuperSport, just one of the Danish brand’s family of golf cars. (Yes, cars, never carts.) This stylish vehicle, made primarily of carbon fiber, has everything any gear enthusiast could ask for in a souped-up, luxury automobile: a waterproof, chocolate-brown leather interior, hand-stitched lounge seats, a top-of-the-line infotainment system and a Wi-Fi connection. Of course, there are some additional bells and whistles specific to your golfing experience too: a touch-enabled digital scoreboard and even a built-in mini-fridge. The car runs in three liquid metal finishes—Diamond White, Selenite Gray and Black Carbon—each an elusive, extravagant choice for your ride

that’s anything but par for the course when you’re riding alongside those typical club models. The grill’s golf ball-esque dimples may be the only feature that will remind you that you are, in fact, driving a golf cart. The SuperSport model was created, Garia says, with the style of a Mercedes-Benz in mind. The luxury automaker’s influence is easy to recognize, as the SuperSport’s driving finesse and sleek concept are unmistakably Mercedes-like. It doesn’t zoom up and down a fairway as fast as a Benz-y would on an open highway (it tops out at 25 mph in the U.S.—it is a golf cart), but it’s street legal in the U.S. and Europe and can be driven wherever the avid golfer behind the wheel dares take it. So, how much for your personal Benz-buggy hybrid to zip around on the golf green? The SuperSport starts at a cool $77,999 without shipping or labor fees. It’s a top-of-the-line automobile in its most practical form for any serious sportsman and a guaranteed hole-in-one.

OUTSIDE Taking its cue from the lush traditions of Southern cooking, this alfresco summer supper is one even the host can enjoy.

In the annals of dinnertime hospitality, there are many strategies for “making it look easy.” Perhaps the most ingenious and diabolical of them is having it actually be easy. That’s the skinny on this outdoor dinner, perhaps with guests still drying off from a cooling dip. Setting the scandalously simple agenda is one of the to-die-for Southern-style recipes featured in celebrity chef and lifestyle expert Alex Hitz’s new tome, The Art of the Host: Recipes and Rules for Flawless Entertaining (Rizzoli New York). It’s a master class on hosting dinner parties, family brunches and holiday get-togethers with that unbeatable combination—delicious food and stunning presentation. And yes, many recipes are startlingly low-hassle. Everything served at this outdoor Los Angeles repast, for example, was prepared ahead of time and served cold—except for the chicken, which was extra tasty when warmed up slightly. Hitz’s hits include ideas as simple as add a slice of lemon in a glass of water to adding color to your tablescape—or as clever as the blue-and-white gingham that serves as design inspiration. Your guests will toast your taste—and you’ll brazenly join in.

Drain them into a colander, let them cool slightly and cut them into quarters. Add them to a large mixing bowl, and then add the rest of the ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, mix the salad very well. Cover the salad and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or up to 3 days—as with just about everything, the longer the better for the best flavor.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF A GREAT PARTY: DESIGNING THE PERFECT CELEBRATION

Any wedding is a peak experience, so why not be literal about it? One couple decided the Rocky Mountains would be the perfect setting for their destination weekend celebration. The bride has roots here in Colorado, where she learned to appreciate beautiful surroundings, and she wanted them to be part of her nuptials. So the lovebirds hired Bryan Rafanelli, named by Vogue as one of the world’s top party planners, to conceptualize and execute every detail of their four-day, 400-guest celebration in Aspen—from the Wild West welcome party in a barn to the ceremony on a ranch and a reception complete with a 25-piece orchestra. Rafanelli’s new and first-ever book, A Great Party: Designing the Perfect Celebration (Rizzoli, New York), features inspirational photos from this wedding and more of the fabulously artful fêtes he’s orchestrated. A stunning olive-branch arch composed of rose, peach, pink and green blooms was an unforgettable focal point during the outdoor ceremony, which had the bride and groom (and officiants) nestled between a horse barn and a picturesque meadow with a trout pond. As you’ll see on the following pages, the ornate floral arrangement set the tone for the attention to detail that was to come. Continued…

Bottom left: The bridesmaids, dressed in silk gowns of complementary shades of blue and green, clutched bouquets of pink astilbes, seeded eucalyptuses and silver Dusty Millers (and one even held onto a commemorative wedding program). Bottom right: The wedding cake was kept simple so as not to distract from the opulent reception space; Rafanelli and his team built a floral ceiling of faux wisteria to truly envelop guests from all angles.

BOURBON’S

new moment

The classic whiskey from the Bluegrass State evokes Americana like an old tintype. So why is it suddenly hot? By Darcey Gohring it’s an authentic spirit, made by real people like myself,” she says. “I believe the bourbon boom will continue for many years, because the world is just starting to discover it and we have a lot of room to grow across the globe.” Officially the nation’s only native spirit, bourbon is an American whiskey. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t actually have to be made in Kentucky—although 95 percent of it is, and loyalists say that without the state’s climate and local waters it just isn’t the same. Geography aside, the spirit does require three elements: corn, charred oak and time. It is that high concentration of corn that gives bourbon its initial sweet impression. The rest of the profile is influenced by factors such as aging, other ingredients (typically rye and barley) and the climate in which it is aged. The bourbon gets its rich, golden color—along with much of its flavor—from the charred oak. Besides mint juleps, bourbon can be used in other classics such as a Manhattan, an old fashioned or a whiskey sour or simply mixed into a sweet tea on a warm summer day. Purists say it’s even better served in a whiskey glass neat. If you’re trying bourbon for the first time, Gregory recommends starting with a lower proof and sampling different varieties. “There is a bourbon for every palate,” he says. “Bourbon is very elegant, but very complex. Every one has a little twist: They are all slightly different.” However you try this historic whiskey, take a cue from Kentucky natives—sit back, sip and take a moment to enjoy.

Traditional Mint Julep Ingredients n 2 oz. bourbon n ½ oz. simple syrup n 3 fresh mint leaves n crushed ice Directions Express the essential oils in the mint and rub them inside the glass. To the same glass, add simple syrup, bourbon and crushed ice. Stir. Garnish with more ice and fresh mint.

On the second of May, the mint juleps are sure to be flowing at the 146th Kentucky Derby. And these days that cocktail’s main ingredient, the pride of the Bluegrass State, is finishing in the money. Long a bar staple, bourbon is booming again: In just the past decade, Kentucky alone has gone from under 20 distilleries filling about 450,000 barrels to almost 70 filling 1.7 million. Bourbon has always carried Kentucky, but what makes it newly cool in New York and San Francisco? The answer: a combination of younger people embracing it and bartenders appreciating its versatility in crafting cocktails. “There is a surging cocktail culture—it’s the Mad Men effect,” says Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association. “People are looking for an authentic experience.” Elizabeth McCall, assistant master distiller at the well-known Kentucky distillery Woodford Reserve, agrees. “Bourbon has been gaining in popularity because

DOES IT

The century-old menswear brand prospers by exploring what’s new—and reworking what’s old. By Karen Alberg Grossman

What makes a family-owned and -operated clothing company become an international icon? Ask the professionals at Ermenegildo Zegna. Their company has helped to set the standard of excellence for luxury menswear since 1910, when Ermenegildo Zegna bought his father’s woolen looms and began a clothing business. Always looking to the future, the firm, now in its fourth generation, is much more than elegant suits. It’s one of the planet’s largest fabric producers (with its own sheep farm in New South Wales, purchased in 2014); it’s active in promoting improvements in wool production; it’s a philanthropic titan (beginning with reforestation projects in the 1930s, before such work was fashionable, and now supporting the arts, environmental education and conservation efforts). The people at Zegna are textile innovators and fashion leaders. If you own a certain limited-edition Maserati, you will note that the leather, silk and wool herringbone interior is crafted of Zegna fabrics. Zegna’s textile technology expertise is in full view with entire new categories of men’s apparel. The Achill suit, for example, is made entirely with wool remnants from Zegna’s Achill Farm, discarded during the process of suit making and then remixed and rewoven. (The facility was purchased as a model farm, largely for research and development purposes. Says Paolo Zegna, chairman of the business: “We want this farm to be transparent, to tell the complete story of a beautiful product.”) Zegna’s high-performance Packaway suit is amazing for wrinkle-free traveling, and its exclusive Techmerino Wash & Go collection can miraculously be machine-laundered. Talk about fabric innovation—Zegna’s recent launches are truly transforming the menswear industry. A ND RIS E N M O RTO N S P RING/S UMMER 2020

As in seasons past, formal and casual categories seamlessly blend. Sportcoats have outerwear pockets; shirts become jackets; cargo pants are sartorially designed. Even quilted puffer jackets are constructed in Zegna’s tailoring atelier, acquiring an elevated touch. Full trousers narrow toward elasticized bottoms, and knits are increasingly important. And for your feet, Zegna offers up bold-soled zippered boots or multi-material sneakers. It’s a season to have fun with fashion. But beyond fabulous fashion, Zegna’s sustainability and recycling efforts deserve special mention. Many pieces are crafted with exclusive wool, cashmere and nylon fabrics created from existing sources via innovative processes. The result is luxurious fabrics that are recycled as well as recyclable. Zegna is also involved in restoring a rundown suburb of Milan. Its efforts will turn a wasteland into a hub for wellness and science, replete with green parks and new residential areas. Says Zegna creative director Alessandro Sartori: “It is our duty as denizens of this world to live responsibly. I want to do it using the creative means I have at my disposal, which extend from fabric-making to tailoring to producing a fashion show. Everything we do conveys our underlying concept: We do not need to create new from scratch; we can reuse and reinvent the existing, crafting inventive fabrics out of discarded ones, translating traditional techniques into innovative tailoring, turning an abandoned place into an area of creation.”
