ANDRISEN MORTON

Spring is nature’s way of saying,

“LET’S PARTY!”

sneak peek

a pop of color! p. 11

— Robin Williams

Rather than bore you with flowery platitudes about the joys and beauty of spring, let’s get real. During spring and summer in Colorado, a man’s heart turns to: golf, biking, barbeques, convertibles, Coors Field, road trips and never wearing socks—even to the most elegant summer party. Just as we’ve done for the past 40 years, we’ve assembled a spring/summer clothing collection to reflect who you are and all that makes our amazing state, well, amazing. Color is always at the top of the list: standout colors that are lively but not overpowering, and plenty of rich, neutral hues too. You’ll also find cool patterns, athleisurewear and lightweight outerwear that’s as stylish as it is functional. And of course, all your favorite classics are counterpointed by some unexpected combinations. Maybe you prefer casual? Or classy? Or perhaps classy casual? Whatever your personal style, we’ll help you find it and if you don’t have one, we’ll help you create it, from beautiful tailored summer suits to swimsuits and everything in between. Everyone is invited to join us in this party called spring. We look forward to seeing you in the store,

Craig, Lindsay, Dave and John

NOTICE

People judge by appearance. Be sure to send the right message and dress for success. By Frank Schipani

I

n a biography of Aristotle Onassis, I read a great anecdote on image. Onassis was in a cocktail lounge in Monaco having a drink with friends. At the end of the bar were two young men, glancing at him with admiration. One of the young men challenged his friend to approach Onassis and ask him how to look successful. Standing tall, the friend moved toward Onassis. “Excuse me, sir. I’ve admired you for a long time and would love to ask you just one question: How can I look as successful as you?” Onassis paused for a second, then responded with a smile. “I will give you three tips: One, always be exquisitely dressed. Two, always be tan; and three, buy drinks for nice people in nice places.” The young man thanked him, and as he strode back to his seat at the bar, Onassis asked the bartender to send the young men drinks on him. I believe this story speaks volumes about image and perception. Maybe you can’t be tan all the time but good grooming and modern quality clothing (and eyewear) are givens. At home, you can kick back all you want but in the outside world, you are what you look like. Fair or unfair, people make silent judgments on your appearance all the time. I’ve been in the men’s fashion business for almost half a century and have lived and shared this philosophy when conducting professional workshops, seminars and career preparation talks. Three months ago, my son took on a VP sales position with a major financial company. He and I agreed that he needed to upgrade his wardrobe from casual looks to suits and ties. More recently, he and his boss visited a Fortune 500 client and presented to the CEO and several associates. The office was total opulence: 50 stories above the southern tip of the Hudson River, modern furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the New York bridges and Statue of Liberty. During the meeting, the CEO, himself

Known as the “Golden Greek,” the self-made Aristotle Onassis has said, “To be successful, you have to act big, think big and talk big.”

elegantly dressed, suggested a break. While the group was waiting for water to be delivered (no one requested coffee), the CEO looked at my son and said, “Joe, I love what you’re wearing! Great shirt and tie! And what kind of suit is that?” My son explained that the suit was completely unstructured with a “shirt sleeve” shoulder (no padding). His rounded spread-shirt collar exposed some

of the tie underneath, which was tied in a “four-in-hand” with two dimples, a distinctive look no doubt. The CEO thanked him and the meeting proceeded. That afternoon my son texted me to say he never felt as in command as he did when this CEO admired his sartorial style. And yes, he successfully sold his service to this company.

solving your fashion dilemmas

The Truth ABOUT TIES

I’m tempted to discard all my old ties as it seems no one is wearing them anymore. What’s the story? Granted, they’re no longer mandatory business attire, but ties are far from extinct. In fact, nothing makes as clear a proclamation about your confidence and competence as wearing a great tie. Whether with a suit, sportcoat or button-front shirt and jeans, the tie remains a symbol of respect for tradition and of individual style. But don’t confuse 2019 neckwear with what’s on your tie rack. While yesterday’s ties were mostly shiny silk, today’s are often crafted in non-silk or luxury blends, sometimes textured or with a subtle matte finish. For spring, try the new cotton/linen or silk/linen fabrics in modern widths from 2¾ inches to 3¼ inches. Colorful silk prints are still important for creating an upbeat vibe, but knits keep the look fresh. So yes, you can dump the old ties as long as you buy a few new ones. You won’t be sorry!

STAY COOL, Man

Most of my pants and jeans are too heavy (and tight) to wear in hot weather. Are there any options that are lightweight, comfortable and office-appropriate? Yes. We have numerous styles to carry you through spring into summer, including 5-pocket chinos that fit like jeans but are much lighter in weight. With the addition of stretch to traditional fabrics, even slim styles no longer feel tight. In addition to jogger-inspired styles, we carry dressier models in performance fabrics to keep you cool in even the hottest weather. BRAX, one of our favorite luxury brands, uses fibers from the kapok tree, Supima cotton and silk. BRAX’s dense weaving techniques create an elegant drape in some of the brand’s styles. Bottom line: In this era of advanced fabric technology, pants have never been as cool, comfortable or flattering. It’s a good time to stock up!

I hate buying clothes as gifts because I’m never certain of size or taste. What do you suggest? You can’t go wrong with accessories. Consider handsome leather wallets or card cases, soft luxury socks, colorful pocket squares in cotton, silk or linen (printed or trimmed at the edge), artisanal wrist jewelry (a hot trend for all ages and styles), fashion belts and lightweight carry-ons and other assorted travel accessories.

Now Available: MORE COOL BRANDS In our continuing quest to curate the best brands and latest styles, we’ve got some new collections to share with you for spring/summer 2019. Stone Island. The name “Stone Island” comes from the two most recurring words in Joseph Conrad’s novels. Stone Island has a marine feel—but their jackets look great on land too. Think outerwear made from innovative fabrics. The brand has been a cult favorite for years and has grown to include high-performance activewear. The line is made from high-tech fabrics for which Stone Island has created more than 60,000 dye recipes. Fedeli. Fedeli epitomizes high-quality cashmere. In fact, Fedeli was the first Italian company to specialize in cashmere. This family-run company, now in its third generation, is still based in Italy and has an exciting line of looks for sophisticated spring style. Rhone. An American startup company, they’re serious players in the men’s sportswear/activewear market. Rhone is one of the hottest, upscale brands among active men. Their custom fabrics employ silver thread, which provides permanent antibacterial and anti-odor protection that can really take the heat. From the office to the gym, you won’t sacrifice performance for style in Rhone. Secrid. Known for their leather accessories, Secrid is a Dutch brand that stands out for their commitment to the environment and humanity. As a progressive company, they make wallets that fit today’s need for pocket-size essentials. Their products are assembled with TLC in Holland and are stamped with serial numbers to verify their authenticity and uniqueness. Secrid sees the big picture; that’s why they say, “A better world starts in your pocket.”

FRANK & EILEEN

A Style Ace Up Your Sleeve As the warmer weather finally arrives, it’s time to talk about short-sleeve shirts. They are more versatile and fashion forward than one might think. Read on for some brands that will help you reach short-sleeve stardom. Then, head to our sales floor to take a look for yourself.

Frank & Eileen. After a career as an engineer in the dot-com boom, Frank & Eileen founder Audrey McLoghlin landed in L.A. and opened a high-end boutique in Manhattan Beach. She stumbled upon an old book of Italian menswear fabrics made by a family-owned mill in Bergamo that inspired her to craft men’s and women’s shirts with that 140-year-old mill. That kind of serendipity carries through to their collection of short-sleeve shirts that combine Italian tailoring with cool California lifestyle. Ask your salesperson to show you the Frank & Eileen magic.

Faherty. Twins Mike and Alex Faherty grew up loving the beach and lamented that they couldn’t find high-quality clothes for their casual lifestyle. Bottom line, they didn’t want to look like beach bums. So they started a company to fill the need for upscale, stylish pieces for the beach (and elsewhere). Colorful and comfortable, their short-sleeve shirts will make you look like a beach boss.

Ermenegildo Zegna. This company was founded in 1910 and has become a household name. Considering their impeccable reputation, you know you can’t go wrong with anything in their collection, their short-sleeve shirts included. Here are the steps to success: 1. Find an Andrisen Morton salesperson. 2. Ask to see Ermenegildo Zegna’s latest short-sleeve shirts. 3. Buy a few. 4. Wear them and look great.

CRAIG’S SPRING PICKS

Every man should have a super lightweight five-pocket corduroy pant in white or cream for summer. This season, wear them with white sole sneakers in either gray or navy suede and a great checked sport shirt. Just about any sportcoat on the planet will work with this look. The trend in fabrication for suits, jackets and trousers is luxury performance fabrics. Pieces constructed with wool and wool blends have natural stretch, are sometimes water resistant and wear and travel unbelievably well. Canali is one of the designers we carry that uses performance fabrics in many designs and colors. The sneaker trend continues to be very hot, and the brands are designing trainers on a whole new level. At Andrisen Morton, we now offer soft sole footwear in an array of styles, including leather, suede, lace-ups, slipons and double monk strap. Ermenegildo Zegna, Tod’s, Santoni and Magnanni are leading the way for looking great while staying comfortable in your own shoes. What is the suiting trend we are most

excited about? This season, we are featuring the “Kei” suit from Canali. This is their version of a half lined soft suit with two lower patch pockets made from a wool, silk and linen blend. The Kei will give you a chic, casual look, especially when paired with a crisp white or brightly colored linen shirt. For versatility, the jacket can be worn with a pair of gray trousers. This suit is great for traveling, especially if you want to pack light and hit the road. I also want to remind all of you about the power of the pocket square. Every suit jacket (and even some outerwear) deserves a pocket square. When you see someone wearing a pocket square, you know they care about how they present themselves. Try a stylish TV fold (in which the top edge is straight across) or the two-points or three-points up folds. Sure, it takes extra time to get ready, but a pocket square will truly complete your look. If you are confused about which color or patterns to choose, white always works. I look forward to seeing you in the store soon.

Made with SHADES Sunglasses are the calling card of cool. There may be nothing that makes you stand out or says more about you. As we head into the sunnier months, there are several brands that will have you looking lights-out fierce.

Ermenegildo Zegna. The brand known for some of the finest clothing in our store also make a full line of stylish sunglasses. The line is so extensive that there’s a look for every taste. And while sunglasses seem so Hollywood, Italians wear them year-round, so Zegna is on familiar turf.

Tom Ford. Ford is one of those people who has pretty much done it all. With a pedigree as a creative director for Gucci and then head of the film company Fade to Black, Tom Ford comes with a seismic resume. In 2005 he created his own brand, which includes sunglasses that are available here at Andrisen Morton. Get a pair and you can look like a star like, say, Colin Firth (who starred in Ford’s A Single Man and was nominated for an Oscar for that role).

Peter Millar. One of the most sought-after brands in the lifestyle apparel market, Peter Millar’s sunglass offerings are fun and modern (pictured at right). Crafted in Northern Italy and available in several fun colors, the sunglasses have UV 400, scratch resistant, polarized lenses. The look embraces a classic, old-world style, but is cool enough for 2019. Take a look at Peter Millar’s shades and you’ll like what you see.

After 40 Years,

We’re Just Getting Started A lot has happened since we opened our doors in 1979, and we invite you to help us celebrate this fall. Meanwhile, the best is yet to come.... THEN Gas cost $1.46 per gallon, the Sony Walkman hit the market, “Heeeeere’s Johnny” was the biggest and only name in late night television, Christie Brinkley was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and Andrisen Morton opened its doors for business. Dave Morton and Craig Andrisen hired one full-time and one part-time sales associate, a tailor and his wife to work in a 2,000-square-foot space in Downtown Denver. The most expensive suit was an H. Freeman priced at $325, and Troy Guild and Robert Talbott shirts, Ferrell Reed ties and Alden shoes were hot sellers.

A 28-year-old Craig Andrisen (left) and 26-year-old Dave Morton (right) had big plans for their brand-new menswear shop.

NOW The price of gas is $2.24 per gallon, music is streamed through our iPhone Xs, the kings of late night TV include two Jimmys, a James, a Stephen, a Seth and a Carson, reality star Kendall Jenner is officially the world’s highest paid fashion model and Andrisen Morton has grown to become a multigenerational business with 26 employees working in our 7,700-square-foot flagship store. We also have two Peter Millar stores staffed by 10 additional employees. Denver guys come to us to look their best in Kiton, Isaia, Ermenegildo Zegna, Brunello Cucinelli, Canali and more.

Today, Dave (left) and Craig (right) are happy to have had the privilege to serve the men of Denver for 40 years…and they have even more big plans for the future.

hough one of her childhood dreams was to become a Supreme Court Justice, from a young age Amy Nasaw had a keen interest in men’s clothing. She actually fashioned little paper suits for the houseplants in her parents’ Chicago home. Fast-forward 30 years and Amy is one of the West Coast’s most exceptional luxury men’s clothing specialists. So lucky us—and you—Amy joined the Andrisen Morton family in August 2018. Amy realized early on she would never be America’s next top clothing designer, but along the way discovered a passion for sales. After getting a liberal arts education at DePaul University, Amy went to San Francisco and found her niche in highend men’s apparel. “I was extremely lucky my first experience was at a small luxury men’s boutique named The Archive, which only sold very high-end Belgian, Japanese and Italian designers.” Her next career stop was at the legendary Barneys New York’s first San Francisco shop, as a member of the team that opened the store. Amy soon rose to No.1 sales associate in men’s designer clothing—and remained at the top for three years running. In June 2012, Amy headed to Los Angeles and the Ermenegildo Zegna boutique on Beverly Hills’ famed Rodeo Drive. Once again, she excelled, soon becoming a top sales associate. Amy built a loyal clientele over the next five and a half years before leaving L.A. for our beautiful Mile High City. We are beyond thrilled to welcome Amy. Her vast product and industry knowledge, unique perspective on men’s style and unparalleled personal service is a huge asset to our customers. Next time you visit the store, say hello.

ndrisen Morton will soon have a new neighbor. If you’re a foodie, you’ve heard of Le Bilboquet. If not, you need to get out more. For those who don’t follow the culinary scene, Le Bilboquet is a contemporary French bistro with a vibrant atmosphere and a decidedly upscale and loyal following of celebrities and socialites. They have exclusive addresses in New York, Sag Harbor, Atlanta and Dallas…and now Denver. Yes, Le Bilboquet is opening right across the street—look for it sometime in July. Le Bilboquet will fit right in here in Cherry Creek. The eatery will fill a 6,700-square-foot location at 3rd and St. Paul, divided into a fine-dining bistro and a breakfast and lunch café. At the café you’ll channel your inner Parisian. Al fresco lovers among us will race to the large patio along 3rd Avenue. The ambience is tried and true: Le Bilboquet Denver is modeled after the Upper East Side (New York) original—a dining room dressed in white linens, dark wood and brass finishes. Look for classic touches and clean accents along with floor-toceiling windows and blue velvet banquettes. Its menu will include traditional and modern French fare sure to meet the brand’s high-altitude standards, as well as their longstanding signature dishes: their famous Cajun chicken and tuna tartare. Taking a look back, the history of Le Bilboquet reads like an opera, complete with drama, suspense and glamour. Founder and co-owner Philippe Delgrange ran the small but socially monumental restaurant on East 63rd Street in Manhattan for 27 years. During its quarter century-plus in the spotlight, it was the place to see and be seen. Celebrities, the super-wealthy and other “names” rubbed elbows and enjoyed the elite menu served up by the top-notch staff. And then…the owner of the building didn’t renew its lease. After a three-year hiatus, Delgrange reopened Le Bilboquet in 2013, just three blocks from the former restaurant. The New York partners include none other than rock god Eric Clapton (a longtime customer), real estate promoter Steve Witkoff and investor Ron Perelman. With that as a backdrop, here comes Le Bilboquet Denver. So, yes, the restaurant’s reputation precedes itself. Yes, it flies in rarefied air. But it’s very much at home and welcome in Cherry Creek. Just like Andrisen Morton. “We’re very excited and honored to be welcomed into the Cherry Creek Community,” says managing partner Ilona Knopfler. “We strongly believe Le Bilboquet will be a perfect addition to its blossoming restaurant scene.” For sure, they’ll be good neighbors.

RIGHT

WAY

This gentleman’s primer will help you look perfectly polished. Don’t know the difference between a trilby and a fedora? You’re not alone. Plenty of men eschew accessorizing because they are unsure of the right way to incorporate pieces, such as hats, scarves and vests. Consider this our campaign to change your mind about the sartorial details you may be avoiding. So, go ahead. Follow these tips for donning accessories like a pro and upgrade your summer style. FIT TO BE TIED A group of mathematicians in Stockholm recently calculated that there are 177,147 ways to tie a tie. But most men wear one of three basic tie knots: the four-in-hand, the half Windsor and the full Windsor. The last is a thick, wide triangular knot that is said to project confidence and works well with on-trend spread and cutaway shirt collars. Once you decide on the knot, make sure the tip of your tie ends at the middle of your belt buckle or waistband. Too long and the look is frumpy; too short and it just looks silly.

And if you still have wide ties hanging in your closet, give them away. The acceptable width for a tie in 2019 ranges from 2¾ inches to 3¼ inches. Historically, silk has been the fabric of choice for neckwear but these days, designers are blending silk with wool, wool with cotton and cotton with linen for a look that’s less shiny and very on trend. Try a luxury blend or a pure cashmere for a more contemporary expression. IN-VESTED There is no right or wrong way to wear a vest: You simply put it over or under anything in your wardrobe for a fashionable, layered look. Trade in the suit jacket or blazer for a knit or twill vest on hot, humid days. Or keep it traditional with a three-piece suit. Simply remove your suit jacket and you’ll still look professional while staying cool. If you want to slenderize your midsection, nothing is more flattering than a knit vest. Rather than wearing a button-front shirt tucked into pants with a dark belt circling the widest part of the body, a knit vest covers the middle, creating a more flattering line. It is best to match the color of the vest to the color of the pants for a minimizing monochromatic look. Or if the vest has a pattern, match the base color to the pants. On those spring days when there is still a nip in the air, a lightweight nylon quilted vest is the quintessential outerwear piece. This season, brightly hued—even neon— outerwear is all the rage. Utility and field vests were popular on the runway for spring, and we love that they combine function with fashion. When traveling, a vest with many pockets will save you from frantically searching through your carry-on for your passport, cash, credit cards, phone, ad infinitum.

DON’T SCOFF AT THE SCARF If you’ve traveled to Italy, you’ve probably noticed many more Italian men wear scarves in warmer weather than men in the States do. Even in sweltering heat, you’ll see Italian men draping, tying or wrapping beautiful lengths of fabric around their necks. The good news is tying a scarf is a lot easier than tying a tie. The best way to wear a scarf—the nonchalant Italian way—is simply to drape it around the neck and let the ends hang down. If you prefer to wrap or tie, there are two easy ways to do it: For a once-around wrap, drape the scarf around the neck, one end longer than the other. Wrap the longer end around the neck and let both ends hang down. Our favorite way to wear a scarf: Fold it in half lengthwise, drape it over the neck and bring the loose ends through the opening formed by the folded end. Tighten to your comfort level. For spring, try featherweight cashmere, printed linen and linen blends to add a touch of personality to both sportswear and tailored clothing. TOP IT OFF The fedora remains the archetypal gentleman’s hat. While it’s no longer the 1940s when almost every man in the stands at Yankee Stadium wore a fedora, this classic model remains a widely recognized symbol of masculinity and class. In recent years, however, styles including bucket hats, trilbys and baseball caps have added a suitably rebellious touch to any look— from a T-shirt and jeans to a traditional suit. Once you’ve mastered the rules for styling accessories the “right way,” go ahead and break them to express your own individual style.

CHRIS HEMSWORTH This Aussie actor combines talent, great looks and an impeccable fashion sense. By Daria Meoli

C

hris Hemsworth’s best-known acting turn is playing Thor, the superhero and hammer-wielding mythological god, in six Marvel Universe blockbuster movies. But he may be even more famous for being impossibly good-looking. The azure-eyed Australian was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2014 and recently was called “The Manliest Man in Hollywood” by GQ. A Vanity Fair writer who profiled the heartthrob noted that Hemsworth’s “handsomeness is so extreme it can’t be denied or ignored, or even played down.” All this effusive adoration could go to a guy’s head, but this down-to-earth family man can cut through the puff with self-deprecating humor. Thus Hemsworth lampooned himself on Saturday Night Live: “When I got to Hollywood, they said I’d never make it as an actor—they said I was too tall, too blond, my muscles were too big....” And he had tongue firmly in cheek playing Kevin, a hot-but-dumb receptionist in the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot, riffing with improv dynamos Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. Like other Aussie imports—including Naomi Watts and Simon Baker—Hemsworth began his acting career on the Down-Under soap opera Home and Away. American audiences were introduced to Hemsworth in 2009 when he played in Star Trek. Since then he’s played a hacker (in 2015’s Blackhat), a huntsman and a Hunt—that is, a title character in the fantasy films Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) and The Huntsman: The Winter’s War (2016) and the hard-drinking, womanizing Formula One racecar driver James Hunt in the biographical Rush (2013). The actor, who turns 36 in August, will portray Thor for the seventh time in a new Avengers flick this summer. As if one summer blockbuster isn’t enough, Hemsworth also will star in a Men in Black spin-off. Growing up, Hemsworth’s family moved several times among Melbourne, the remote town of Bulman (a cattle station in Australia’s Northern Territory outback)

and Phillip Island, where he first fell in love with surfing. He’s the middle child between two four-letter L-words, older brother Luke and younger brother Liam. They’re actors too. In fact, the Aussie’s seminal superhero role nearly went to Liam instead. Hemsworth’s initial audition for Thor went so badly he didn’t hear back from producers for months, while his brother received several callbacks for the part. When Hemsworth finally got called in for a second audition, his improved reading was fueled by a new motivation, as he told W: “Maybe frustration that my little brother had gotten further than me. A little sibling rivalry sort of kicked up.” Score a win for the middle kid. The bankable leading man’s style has been likened to those of the late Steve McQueen and James Dean because he favors looks that are classic masculine. He is often seen out-and-about in a dark pair of jeans—fitted but never skinny—with a white shirt and a casual leather jacket with gold-rimmed aviator glasses or classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers. When it’s time to hit the red carpet, Hemsworth rocks well-tailored, dark-hued suits. He pairs jackets and pants with slouchy, untucked cotton T-shirts or flexible cotton button-ups with at least two top buttons undone. He’s a master of making an open collar work for formal occasions. While Hemsworth shines as bright as any star in Hollywood, this husband (to actress Elsa Pataky) and father (of 6-year-old daughter India and 4-year-old twin sons Sasha and Tristan) moved his brood out of L.A. in 2015. Yearning to return to the natural space—and pace—of his home country, he relocated his family to Byron Bay, a beach town on Australia’s east coast near some legendary surf breaks. When off-set and miles away from trendy L.A., Hemsworth’s style reflects the proud beach-bum side of his personality—a day-to-day look that consists of Hurley board shorts and a T-shirt. He has said he spends a lot of time at the beach and likes to wear earthy tones in that environment. On screen, at the point break or at a premiere, this Aussie hunk bears watching.

ould you believe that Rickie Fowler has never played any of the courses at Bandon Dunes Resort? Or that Greg Norman has never played Pine Valley? It’s true. Any discussion of courses we love usually ends with confessions about the ones we’ve not played yet. Heck, one of my golfing buddies, Peter, has played 94 of the Golf Digest Top 100, and even he can rattle off 10+ courses he still needs to add to his list. But it would be a crying shame to go much longer without trying the six courses I offer here. These special places are accessible to all golfers, as they are public. Most you’ve heard of, but they may include a surprise or two. And while some are handier to reach than others, all are worth the trip. There are nine-hole courses and even a putting course that in my opinion are just as much fun as the classic 18-hole layouts. Golf should be about the experience, not the number of holes you play.

PINEHURST RESORT, PINEHURST, NORTH CAROLINA

A visit to Pinehurst is de rigueur, as there are at least six courses here that one should experience. My first priority would be Pinehurst course No. 2, a Donald Ross masterpiece that has seen numerous renovations, with the last one completed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw in 2010. Following the elimination of the Bermuda grass rough and the introduction of native hardpan sand with wiregrass, the course has a more natural feel and offers a great challenge, as evidenced by the 2014 U.S. Open for both women and men. A caddie here will increase your enjoyment of this great track. Pinehurst course No. 4 has recently benefited from a wonderful renovation by Gil Hanse, and now it is a worthy companion to No. 2. A fun fact here is that Hanse occupied the home of Ross while he was on the property. Hanse and his team also created a cool nine-hole short course called “The Cradle,” which is an ideal complement to other courses in the Pinehurst complex. When you arrive at the resort you will see what was the first miniature golf course in the U.S. Created in 1916 by James Barber, it offers the entire family a fun introduction to this historic resort. To be honest, there’s also another reason I love visiting here: The pancakes at the Pinehurst Resort are world-class.

ST. ANDREWS & KINGSBARNS, FIFE, SCOTLAND

Would any list be complete without “The Home of Golf ”? This one requires a hop across the ocean, but it’s eminently worth it. Once you’re here, there’s much to be said for starting at the beginning—St. Andrews’ Old Course, which dates back to the 15th century. You can feel the wonderful history, and with the clubhouse of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews as a backdrop, the first tee shot will give you chills. There are six more links in St. Andrews providing a palette of amazing landscape to experience here. Close by is Kingsbarns, where the duo Mark Parsinen and Kyle Phillips shaped a masterpiece on land that was mined during World War II. The views from this venue are memorable, and the par 3 15th that plays over a rocky inlet (where the wind is most always present) may be your Kodak moment. Besides golf, the town of St. Andrews has many great restaurants and shops, as well as Fisher & Donaldson, which might be the best pastry shop you will ever visit. (In my book a great cinnamon bun is a fine reward for walking 18.)

SAND VALLEY GOLF RESORT, NEKOOSA, WISCONSIN

Then there’s the Badger State, with both old and new courses to try. For the latter, it’s time again to thank Mike Keiser (the developer of Bandon Dunes) along with Craig Haltom, who recognized that this land had unlimited potential. And thank you, Michael and Chris Keiser (Mike Keiser’s sons), for delivering what Golf Digest has recognized as the “best new course of 2017.” Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw were entrusted with the responsibility of designing the first course (May 2017), and while they moved more earth here than at Sand Hills, their award-winning private course in Nebraska, the Sand Valley course fits the land like a great jigsaw puzzle. The sand here is employed in many different ways, from bunkers to waste areas, and I can assure you that you will use every club in your bag. The second course at Sand Valley is Mammoth Dunes by David McLay Kidd, and it showcases Kidd’s maturity and style. The 14th hole was created with the design help of a Golf Digest “armchair architect” contest. Brian Silvernail, a graphic designer from Florida, presented the winning entry, and it’s a beauty. This drivable downhill par 4 has a sloping fairway and a Redan-style green (unusual for a par 4 hole). If you are skilled or lucky enough to drive into the speed slot on the right, you will be rewarded with a ball close to the green. Add a 17-hole par 3 course (by Coore and Crenshaw) and you will have a perfect couple of days of great golf and fun.

LAWSONIA LINKS, GREEN LAKE, WISCONSIN

Make this your next Wisconsin stop. Lawsonia Links, designed in the 1930s by William Langford and Theodore Moreau, is a must-visit for sure. The layout will test your short game, as the elevated greens and mounds will challenge your shot-making skills. Pro tip: You’ll want to practice your bunker shots before arriving.

BANDON DUNES GOLF RESORT, BANDON, OREGON

With five distinctly different golf courses and a great par 3 track, this resort is the perfect starting point. Every golfer owes a debt to Mike Keiser, who had the courage and conviction to find an area on the Oregon coast that was ideal for a unique golf experience. The first course, Bandon Dunes by David McLay Kidd, opened in 1999 and showcases this property’s magnificent dunes and ocean views. When Tom Doak’s Pacific Dunes course debuted in 2001, it was amazing that a second course could be created on the same land with such a different feel. Then in 2005 came the opening of Bandon Trails, fashioned by architects Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, and we all started to believe that this was indeed a special area that could be developed in many different ways. Old Macdonald (my favorite) opened in 2015. Here designers Doak and Jim Urbina approached their task by asking, “What would the great Charles Blair Macdonald have created on this land?”—Macdonald being one of the premier course architects of the early 20th century. Old Macdonald is a great walk (all of the courses at Bandon should be experienced walking) on a huge canvas of land. For example, the first hole provides an expansive fairway to hit, and it’s only when you arrive for your second shot that you realize the difficulty lies ahead with an elevated green. The journey continues with a unique collection, each respecting Macdonald’s genius. The trend-setting Bandon Preserve (Coore and Crenshaw) par 3 course opened in 2012, with all of the proceeds going to the Wild Rivers Coast Alliance, an organization that supports conservation, community and the economy on the southern Oregon coast. The first time you play you will be smiling for the rest of the day, as each hole has a twist or turn or slope and elevation to challenge your short-game skills. If ever a course were to be compared to an Easter egg hunt, this would be it. It’s only toward the end that you notice there are only 13 holes. I guarantee you will not care.

SILVIES VALLEY RANCH, SENECA, OREGON

Oregon again? Sure—the state has some of the best land in the country for golf, and Silvies Valley Ranch, situated 300+ miles from Portland and 200 miles from Boise, makes my list, as it’s big (100,000+ acres) and offers many activities beyond golf. When the goats (3,000) outnumber the local residents, you know this is not a typical golf course. Oh, and by the way, you can even use one of the goats as a caddie, as Akbar Chisti, the founder of Seamus Golf, has designed a unique golf bag specifically for this purpose! Architect Dan Hixson created two 18-hole layouts, which are played on alternate days, allowing you to play the course in both directions. Hixson’s excellent par 3 layouts are especially great and add to the fun of playing here. Don’t forget to sample the farm-to-table cuisine at Silvies and enjoy the many available nongolf activities, such as hiking, biking and horseback riding. Does this exhaust my list of great courses? No way—there are many more, with Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, N.Y., and Pebble Beach in Pebble Beach, Calif., as additional standouts I can’t neglect to mention. It’s also great to play a course that has recently hosted a major, because if you watched the tournament you’ll have enhanced knowledge of the venue. But the half-dozen venues I’ve described here are great for starters. Make sure, if you can, that they don’t linger long on your “not yet” list.

t’s official—long, baggy shorts are history. While skinny pants have fallen out of fashion’s favor, slimming, tailored trousers and jeans have continued to reign for nearly a decade and ankle-length pant hems have been mainstream since 2015. We’ve waited with bated breath for shorts to take the same style cues and become shorter and tapered. Thankfully, designers this season have confirmed that cargo and other droopy-style shorts have gone the way of 1970s’ leisure pants. For spring/summer ’19, shorts are slim, trim and sexy. No longer relegated to the gym, beach, ballgame or backyard barbecue, shorts are a fashion must-have this season. While many designers showed very short shorts at Fashion Week, choose the length that feels most comfortable to you. Appropriate lengths range from two to six inches above the knee. Fabric options range from soft-brushed cottons to seersucker to feather-light performance fabrics that combine the technical advantages of boardshorts with the sophisticated styling of fashion shorts. The cuts available this year are appropriate for the office, date night and other business casual occasions. You can dress up shorts with a woven button-up, fabulous floral print shirt or even a sportcoat or lightweight cardigan to really refine the look. Sandals with shorts should only be worn in very casual situations. To stay sharp, pair shorts with driving moccasins, boat shoes, loafers or leather sneakers. Keep in mind socks should not be visible, so go barefoot or pick up no-show socks. Stop in the store and we’ll help you find your perfect pair of shorts.

t is said that change in men’s fashion is evolutionary, not revolutionary. But every so often a fashion concept emerges that totally shakes things up. Such was the case when American men were introduced to the Italian art of soft tailoring, or “empty” tailoring, as Boglioli calls it. These are suits and sportcoats with only the lightest-weight canvas between the outer fabric and the lining, so that the jacket conforms to the body. In some cases, there’s no canvas or lining at all, yet these virtually weightless garments add a hefty dose of sophistication and flair. Among the masters of unconstructed tailoring, Boglioli is an “insider’s” brand, much loved by those in the know. In fact, for several generations Boglioli crafted clothing for the most prestigious men’s designers in Italy, who sold it under their own labels. In the late 1990s, the third-generation Boglioli brothers decided to create a collection using their family name. They also began experimenting with a special dyeing and washing process that adds exceptional color and textural nuance to the garment. Boglioli managing director David Newlove explains the process: “The fabrics (often with a pattern woven in) come into our Gambara, Italy, workshop, where we craft the jackets, bundle them and send them to our tintoria in the next village. There they’re dyed and overdyed and sometimes acid-washed for a frost effect. They’re dried and hung and sent back to us for pressing and finishing. The end result: a jacket that’s so soft, luxurious and comfortable that it makes everything else in one’s closet obsolete.” For spring/summer 2019, Newlove is most excited about advancements in the garment dye process using new technology to give a unique color palette. “We’re introducing our iconic K jacket now with a cangiante Solaro overdye. It’s finished with a special salt treatment before it’s sent back to our workrooms for final finishing and pressing.” For the quintessential sportcoat for summer travel, Newlove suggests Boglioli’s weightless, super-soft, cotton micro-cord shirting fabric crafted into a K jacket. “In today’s era of relaxed corporate dress codes, guys truly appreciate our concept of ‘empty’ tailoring,” he says. “For many, this type of garment inevitably becomes a favorite piece of clothing—not serious, dressfor-success clothing but a suit or sportcoat to live in.”

shirt TALES

Your style. Your comfort. Your exact fit. Made-to-measure is a shirt story that always has a happy ending. By Darius Amos Don’t get us wrong: We love off-the-rack garments, and they can create memorable looks. But face it—those shirts don’t fit like a made-to-measure shirt. Not every guy is an average Joe, so standard retail sizes and designs won’t always cut it. Because made-to-measure is based on your measurements, each shirt is guaranteed to fit perfectly. We offer made-to-measure shirts from some of the world’s finest designers—Ermenegildo Zegna, Eton and ISAIA to name a few—in addition to the country’s top dedicated shirtmakers. Each of the renowned brands has its own distinctive style, and we know you do too. So what do you have to do to get your unique piece? That’s easy: Let us do the work. A common misconception is that made-to-measure is a complicated and costly proposition. That’s not at all true. We partner with makers to offer options at several price points, making it accessible for everyone. Here’s how it works: Our made-to-measure experts will talk to you about your personal style, fit, details and occasion. We will take you through the seemingly countless number of options to design exactly what you have in mind. Whether it’s formal, business or casual—we can do it all. THE PROCESS First, our tailors will take all your measurements—chest, neck, shoulders, arms, biceps (have you been working out?), waistline, the works. Next, you’ll select the material that will eventually go on your back and whether your shirt will be a single solid color or two tones, adorned with elegant stripes, boast a nice checked pattern or more. Our wide assortment of fabrics comes only from the most demanding mills in the world, and they satisfy all needs, wants and styles. Loose, athletic or slim fit? It’s all up to you.

ELEMENTS OF STYLE Here is where you let your creativity and attitude shine. We’ll present you with a seemingly endless number of options to customize your shirt. Think about the type of collar you prefer. For instance, the cutaway collar provides plenty of room if you wear a Windsor tie knot; the spread collar has a wide yet crisp look with or without a tie. You have your choice of cuffs too. A two-button barrel cuff is perfect for every day or to wear to a more casual office. Rounded cuffs add a touch of formality to your look or choose a sophisticated French or double cuff if you’re headed to a black-tie event or just like to wear cufflinks. Personalization doesn’t end there. Mother-of-pearl buttons? Placket or no placket? One, two or no pockets? Monogrammed or clean look? You decide. WHAT TO EXPECT Forget about spending hours trying on clothes in a tight changing room. Once tailors have confirmed your measurements and design selections, your job is essentially done. Made-to-measure shirts require few fittings, or in some cases none at all. (That’s more time to shop in our store for sportcoats and ties to complete the look!) It’s a modest investment of time and, if we may say so, a pretty good deal. Typically, the turnaround time for a madeto-measure shirt is three to five weeks. And you’ll pay $160 to $300 for it—about the same as a fine shirt that’s ready to wear. You can start with just one if you like, but we’re fairly sure you won’t stop there. Be warned. Once you’ve tried made-to-measure, you may find it hard to go back to off-the-rack.

HIKE

On trails like these six, you’ll reap benefits physically, mentally, spiritually—and scenically. By Daria Meoli

H

iking is having a moment. Whether it’s the exercise or the pure fresh air folks crave—or simply a brief, scenic escape from routine—record numbers are enjoying this outdoor activity, from Snow Lake Trail near Seattle to the end of the Appalachian Trail at Mount Katahdin in Maine. Hiking can be a strenuous challenge. But even at its most leisurely it gets you off the couch—and into nature. It requires stability, mobility, endurance and strength, and has many fitness benefits. Just one hour of trekking can burn up to 500 calories, depending on the incline level and the load being carried. While hiking is a powerful cardio workout, the trails are also less taxing on your joints than asphalt or concrete, making this activity more forgiving on ankles and knees than running. The sport builds strength in your glutes, quads, hamstrings, hips and lower legs while boosting bone density and improving blood pressure. It may even be a cancer fighter: According to a study published in the International Journal of Sports Medicine, long-distance hiking trips may improve antioxidative capacity, which helps fight off disease. Being out in the wild, away from everyday stress factors and tech toys can get your mind and spirit in better shape too. It can increase attention span and boost creative problem-solving. Hiking is a proven meditative activity because the repetitive motion of strides is calming; it decreases stress response and lowers the body’s cortisol levels. Some studies show that people regularly exposed to natural surroundings have decreased depression, anxiety, cognitive decline, headaches and inflammation. Some fitness experts predict that hiking will become more popular than yoga as a stress-busting workout. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned hiker, there are magnificent trails all across the country that will get your heart pumping vigorously while you enjoy spectacular views. Here are a standout half-dozen.*

MCWAY FALLS OVERLOOK TRAIL, JULIA PFEIFFER BURNS STATE PARK Big Sur, California

HOH RIVER TRAIL, OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK Forks, Washington

Along the storied California coast between Los Angeles and San Francisco lies Big Sur, a jewel of the Pacific Coast. This trail offers a nearly flat stroll that ends with flawless views of the iconic McWay Falls. Here, water drops 80 feet from a granite cliff into a sandy cove below and flows into the mighty Pacific Ocean. And also check out the one-mile Partington Cove Trail, also in the park. This steep but short hike will take you across a rustic wooden bridge, then down a 60-foot tunnel where you emerge onto the park’s only beach access. Confirm that the trails are open before heading to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, as recent wildfires may have closed some of them.

The scenery along this route can best be described as an enchanted forest. Winding through one of the few true rainforests left on the planet, the Hoh River Trail features moss-covered stones along the picturesque river, ancient trees towering over beds of ferns and Roosevelt elk feeding in meadows with sweeping mountain views. Most of the trail is flat and appropriate for all fitness levels. However, the last five miles become more strenuous, so beginners may want to plan to end their hike near Five Mile Island or Lewis Meadow. For more seasoned hikers looking to push through, the payoff is huge. From here it’s nine more miles to the Blue Glacier Overlook, where visitors see an impressive slab of a glacier along the side of Mount Olympus.

WEST BEACH TRAIL, INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE Porter, Indiana

WAVE TRAIL,VERMILION CLIFFS NATIONAL MONUMENT Kanab, Utah

Located just 50 miles south of Chicago along beautiful Lake Michigan, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore offers raw coastal beauty and a variety of habitats. Visitors can access the lakeshore by car or by boat. The West Beach Trail System offers hikers unique bird-watching, secluded pathways lined with wildflowers and jack pines and, of course, one-of-a-kind water views from a succession of colossal dunes. This trail system has two different hikes—a three-and-a-half-mile trek that takes about three hours or a one-mile hike that can be done in about an hour. Summer hikers should pack a bathing suit. After a good walking workout, visitors can cool down in the lake or just relax on the sandy beach.

With its swirling red sandstone walls, Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona, is one of the most surreal scenes in the country. But interest in this iconic slot canyon is so high that visitors must explore with a guide and contend with crowds at any time of year. However, the Wave Trail across the Utah boarder in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument offers hikers a similarly psychedelic environment without the crowds (only 20 people are given permits to hike this trail per day) and an opportunity to be active. The desert trail starts at Coyote Buttes and winds through enormous Navajo sandstone walls made of curvy layers of red, pink and yellow rock. More experienced hikers should continue the adventure down the trail to see more unbelievable rock formations and stellar views, such as Top Arch and Melody Arch. Apply for a permit in advance at the Bureau of Land Management’s official website. The out-of-this-world location is worth the extra planning.

MARYLAND HEIGHTS LOOP, HARPERS FERRY NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

SAM’S POINT AND VERKEERDERKILL FALLS TRAIL Cragsmoor, New York

History buffs will especially love this Mid-Atlantic hiking trail. The loop starts and finishes in the quaint West Virginia village of Harpers Ferry. The town itself is a National Historic Park, brimming with 19th-century architecture, museums, exhibits, trades workshops and living history events. The hiking trail passes the remains of a naval artillery battery built in 1862 and a Union army fort built in 1863. Other Civil War remnants seen along the way include ammunition pits and breastworks. The path gets more intense as you climb cliffs that overlook Harpers Ferry with stunning views of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. After a strenuous hike, visitors can reward themselves at True Treats Historic Candy, a store near the trail’s end in downtown Harpers Ferry that specializes in sweets from the 1500s through the mid-1900s.

The star of this hike is the Verkeerderkill Falls, where a 180foot waterfall drops to the bottom of an isolated canyon. Access to cliffs around the canyon is unfettered, and hikers feel as though they are the first humans to discover the scene. Spring and summer are the best times of year to see the falls in full, rushing glory. Hikers can also climb down steep rock and a series of ladders for a third of a mile into ice caves cold enough to hold snow through July. The trail winds through an endangered dwarf pitch pine barren and abandoned berry-picker shacks, remnants of a time when the area was known for wild blueberry gathering. Hikers mount several cliffs—including Sam’s Point—for views of High Point Monument in New Jersey, the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains.

some like IT HOT

Summer can be an ideal time for adventurous cocktail concoctions that really spice things up. By Daria Meoli

I

ndian vindaloo, Ethiopian doro wat, Mexican chilate de pollo—have you ever wondered why some of the spiciest flavors originate in cuisines from the warmest climates? Super-spicy dishes actually can be refreshing on a sweltering summer night— and the same holds true for cocktails with a kick. Ingredients with heat increase circulation and raise body temperature, helping the body adapt to warm weather. Like a bowl of chili at an August barbecue, piquant potions can be—ironically—quite invigorating when it’s hot and steamy out. Libations made with sriracha, wasabi and other hot mixers can hit the spot in summertime. On the tail of last year’s turmeric trend, top mixologists and bartenders are looking to bring even more internationally inspired heat to their repertoire. They are exploring creative ways to balance savory spice with citrus and herbal notes (think tequila infused with serrano chiles mixed with fresh cucumber juice, basil, lemon and agave). At BlackTail, the Cuban-themed New York City watering hole named “Best New Cocktail Bar in America” at the 2017 Spirited Awards, the bar team continuously reviews their cocktails to make sure they give guests the kick they crave. They’ve added heat to Manhattans, pineappletequila sours and cucumber Collins. Behind the bar, they stock spicy bitters (Hellfire Bitters, Jamaican Jerk Bitters) and house-made infusions (Scotch bonnet oloroso sherry, ancho chile sweet vermouth and jalapeño gin) as well as bottles of Ancho Reyes Verde and St. George Green Chile Vodka. For recreational mixologists, there are many ways to add heat to favorite recipes at

home. Spice up a tried-and-true margarita by swapping out traditional salt for dried and ground chipotle or put pepper-infused salt around the rim of the glass. Top off the five o’clock martini or traditional old-fashioned with a splash of habanero bitters or hot sauce. Hot peppers cause an endorphin release, and one way to chase a blissed-out, capsaicin-induced high is to make ice from hot-pepper-infused water. Add thin slices of jalapeños or cayenne peppers in one or two cups of water for about half an hour. Remove the pepper slices and use that water to fill an ice cube tray. Toss the cubes in a rocks glass with your favorite whiskey, tequila or vodka. As the cubes melt, you’ll really begin to feel that good kind of burn at the back of your throat. Talk about fire and ice! The best approach to experimenting with heat is to start conservatively, because alcohol intensifies the flavor of spices. “Different proof bases can extract different amounts of spice from specific ingredients,” says Will Pasternak, head bartender at BlackTail. “A higher proof base (like a 40 percent ABV gin) will extract much more spice than a less alcoholic base (like a 17 percent ABV vermouth). We use different quantities of alcohol to get the precise level of heat we want.” If your spicy kick inadvertently turns into a five-alarm blaze, add some agave syrup—the sweetness will counterbalance the heat. Should the occasion call for a more elaborate—and adventurous—cocktail, there are many delicious ways to bring the heat. We asked three expert mixologists how they play with fire to create spicy summer cocktails, and each shared a favorite recipe.

THE GARDEN PALOMA

Created by Meaghan Dorman of Raines Law Room, New York City

Move over, margarita. La paloma is the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico. A traditional la paloma (which translates to “the dove”) is a simple and refreshing option that combines grapefruit juice, lime juice and tequila with club soda. But at Raines Law Room, a renowned New York City speakeasy named for an ill-fated 1896 law intended to curb city residents’ liquor consumption, bar director Meaghan Dorman adds house-made jalapeño agave syrup to create a paloma that is más caliente. For the cocktail: 2 oz blanco tequila 1 oz fresh grapefruit juice ½ oz fresh lime juice 2 dashes celery bitters ¾ oz jalapeño agave syrup 2 oz club soda Pinch of sea salt Lime wedge For the jalapeño agave syrup: 5 jalapeño peppers, sliced 2 cups boiling water 2 cups agave syrup  To make the jalapeño agave syrup, muddle peppers into a paste in a heatproof bowl or other container. Pour boiling water over peppers and stir in agave syrup. Let steep for 20 minutes, then strain.  For the cocktail, add tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, celery bitters and jalapeño agave syrup to shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled and strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top the cocktail off with club soda and garnish with a pinch of sea salt and lime wedge.

DATE IN INDIA

Created by Raul Ayala of Dirty Habit, San Francisco

Created by Adam Dreyer of The Bad Apple, Chicago

At Dirty Habit, a restaurant and lounge on the fifth floor of the Hotel Palomar, bar manager Raul Ayala favors mixing brown aged spirits with fruity and smoky flavors, like dried chiles, and clear spirits with fresh green heat, such as serrano peppers, for an earthy, herbal touch. One concoction in particular—Date in India—keeps returning to the cocktail menu due to high demand. It’s a culture clash in a glass, blending Thai kaffir lime leaves, Mexican chile de arbol peppers and a liqueur made from Croatian cherries. This fire starter has all the makings for an exotic and memorable summer cocktail hour.

Adam Dreyer, bar manager at The Bad Apple in Chicago, draws inspiration from the fresh ingredients his kitchen procures from nearby farms. The Calvin and Habanero is one popular cocktail that got its start in the kitchen. “Our chef brought in some blackberries and black raspberries and our chef made a habanero and berry hot sauce,” says Dreyer. “We took it a step further by fashioning a cocktail inspired by the flavors in this spicy yet refreshing hot sauce our kitchen cooked up.” Though this tequila-based drink is named for a cartoon boy and his imaginary tiger friend, the heat in this cocktail isn’t child’s play. Dreyer infuses tequila with habaneros because they are not only one of the spiciest peppers, but also have a floral essence.

For the cocktail: 1.5 oz Del Maguey VIDA Mezcal ¾ oz fresh-squeezed lime juice ¾ oz spicy tamarind syrup ½ oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur Dehydrated orange slice Black Tajin-inspired seasoning For the spicy tamarind syrup: 1½ cups tamarind purée 1½ cups sugar 2 oz ginger (clean and chopped) 3 kaffir lime leaves 3 pieces chile de arbol (also known as bird’s beak chiles) For the black Tajin-inspired seasoning: 1 tsp. chili powder ½ tsp. chipotle powder 2 tsp. salt ½ tsp. activated charcoal For the syrup, combine all of the ingredients for the spicy tamarind syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool, then strain. Combine all ingredients for the Tajin-inspired seasoning. When you are ready to make the cocktail, combine all the ingredients—including the spicy tamarind syrup—and shake. Double-strain the mixture, then serve in a double old-fashioned glass and garnish with a dehydrated orange slice and black Tajin-inspired seasoning.

78

THE CALVIN AND HABANERO

For the cocktail: 1½ oz habanero-infused blanco tequila 1 oz blackberry syrup or purée 1 oz lemon juice Ginger beer to taste For the habanero-infused blanco tequila: 4 habanero peppers 1 bottle of blanco tequila For the blackberry syrup or purée: 1 cup blackberries 1 Tbsp. lemon juice 2 Tbsp. sugar To infuse the tequila, cut 4 habaneros in half, add to one bottle of tequila. Let it sit for 4 hours and then strain. Some batches of peppers are spicier than others, so taste the infusion as it sits. To make the blackberry syrup or purée, add the berries to a saucepan with lemon juice and sugar. Mash the berries a bit and let them macerate before turning on the heat. Once the sugar has brought out some of the berries’ juices, turn the heat on medium. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, then remove from heat. After it cools, either blend the mixture and serve as a purée or put it through a strainer and use just the syrup. Add all ingredients and some ice to a small shaker. Shake then pour into a glass rimmed with salt and top with ginger beer.

PSYCHOLOGY

In honor of Father’s Day, top menswear execs share lessons they’ve learned from Dad. By Karen Alberg Grossman

“Whoever does not have a good father should procure one,” advised the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The importance of fatherhood is universally recognized, as is the tremendous impact fathers have. Here, top menswear execs share some of the wisdom they’ve derived from their dads: Ermenegildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna “My father Angelo was my role model. He taught me the importance of family and how to lead by example. He showed his children the significance of having vision, of taking risks, of thinking longterm. Most important, my father had a strong sense of humility and discipline. I am forever grateful to have learned these attributes from such an important figure in my life.” Brunello Cucinelli, CEO and founder of Brunello Cucinelli “Be ever so careful that the ox does not step out of the furrow.” As odd as this might sound, the greatest teaching I received from my father stems from this warning. My family were farmers in Umbria, and each of us had a precise task to carry out in order to make ends meet. One of my tasks was to lead the oxen during ploughing, while my father would operate the plough behind me. Once our work was done, he would stare at the newly traced furrows and say with satisfaction: ‘See how perfectly straight they are? Good job!’ And when I asked him why it was so important, he would reply: ‘Because they look better straight!’ “As a teenager I did not pay much attention. But over the years I’ve started to slowly understand how many things were meant by that apparently simple warning, and how important they all were. “I understood that the ploughshare, polished by use, shines in the sun like the purity of human labor; that the furrow is like the womb of generous Mother Earth; that year after year, through our ploughing, we were writing the great book of fathers; that tradition holds the values of the brightest future; that the straight furrow represents the integrity of the righteous. “Last but not least, I understood that beauty is indispensable for a good life. I thank my father and, so far, I’ve always tried to live by his teachings.”

Arnold Silverstone, creative director of Samuelsohn and Hickey Freeman “My dad Peter is a judicious businessman, a loving, devoted family man, a competitive sportsman and a generous human being. He’s set the bar high in terms of how to live life with passion, commitment and integrity. “It’s no surprise that I followed his footsteps into the fashion business. Because he had his own tailored clothing company, I was able to study by his side from childhood. He always had the courage to allow me to fail and learn from my mistakes; he was always there for me when I needed him. Among my greatest joys has been having him with me during several of my career high points and to see the pride in his eyes. That’s the same pride I’ve always had for my incredible dad.” Mike Faherty, co-founder of Faherty Brand “I’ve always had a fascination with clothing and style. My dad Roger, who worked in finance on Wall Street, was a sharp dresser with genuine flair and a deep appreciation for quality fabrics and construction, which certainly rubbed off on me. I remember his closet full of tailored suits neatly lined up for the week and the perfectly soft Hawaiian shirts he would wear with panache in the summer. The clothing brand my brother and I founded six years ago is in many ways an homage to our dad.” Gianluca Isaia, CEO of ISAIA “‘My Way’ sung by Frank Sinatra was my father’s favorite song, and it’s the way he lived his life. Everything I know about our business I learned from my father, Enrico. He was a risk-taker and pioneer

in his field, taking over for my grandfather to run the second generation business. “Throughout my career, I had the great fortune to travel across the globe with this man who taught me every aspect of the business. Everything you do has an impact. It was amazing to work alongside him and experience firsthand the evolution of the brand. One piece of advice he gave me was the Latin phrase ‘Etiam capillus unus habet umbram suam,’ which means even a single hair casts a shadow. “My father had a great sense of style and was one of the first members of Pitti Uomo [the menswear trade show in Florence], which he attended regularly throughout his lifetime. He loved the Neapolitan classics and took styling references from elegant Neapolitan men as well as from Toto and other Italian film greats. Ultimately, though, my father taught me to define my own sense of style. “We carry on his legacy at ISAIA by working hard and never compromising who we are and our own identity—made in Napoli.”
