IT’S FRENCH, AND IT’S FABULOUS A single name can define a fashion era. Carven is most definitely such a name—and you’ll find it in Garmany’s women’s department. The creation of legendary French fashion icon Carmen de Tommaso, the line was ultrapopular in the ’50s through ’70s. Now the Carven line reflects the look of today—it’s decidedly young, fresh and hip. C’est magnifique!
GARMANY GUIDE ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING
Elegance. Quality. Masculinity. These are words, but the magic of clothing is that it can transform mere words into an attitude. And that attitude can change your place in the world. Maurizio Baldassari has known this since he released his first menswear collection in Milan in the ’80s. And now his sons Renato and Roberto know it too. The Baldassari attitude reflects the look of a strong, confident man who exudes modern elegance for every occasion. Look for garments with the Baldassari attitude at Garmany.
BOTTLED IN BOND
You know the lifestyle: fast cars, exotic escapades, dapper suits, cunning quips and, of course, dry martinis. Whether the fictional James Bond was exposing a would-be assassin in Goldfinger or charming a villainous double agent in Casino Royale, he always had a drink in hand. Fans may not get to race an Aston Martin down a Monaco mountainside, but they can mix a cocktail fit for 007. In Shaken: Drinking with James Bond & Ian Fleming (Mitchell Beazley, $20), readers will find scenes from Bond creator Ian Fleming’s books with cocktail recipes to match. Author Edmund Weil, the British bar industry insider who opened London establishments Bar Swift, Nightjar and Oriole, is more than a master mixologist—he is a relative of Fleming, who died in 1964. Weil pours out top secret intel on how to craft 10 classic drinks from the pages of the spy novels, including the classic Vesper martini (shaken, not stirred). He’s also concocted 40 new cocktail recipes inspired by the people, places and plots of the original books.

THE GARMANY GUIDE THE A–Z LIST
Garmany is proud to feature more than 100 designer brands under one roof! See if you don’t find your favorites in the list below. Then stop by our store for a shopping experience you’ll love.
A REAL FARM TEAM
While becoming a vintner is now cool—everyone from baseball players to film directors is doing it—there’s a local wine producer, Fox Hollow Vineyards in Holmdel, whose owner is an actual grape farmer. As a sixthgeneration farmer, owner Joe Casola—who has a degree in viticulture and enology—understands how to make wine using native New Jersey grapes. That takes experience, knowledge and a sense of the art and science of winemaking. We can’t vouch for Joe’s knuckleball, but when it comes to producing a superb glass of vino, he’s an ace. P.S. Check out the gorgeous grounds in our fashion story on page 92. Joe was kind enough to let us shoot on location at his vineyards. 939 HOLMDEL RD., HOLMDEL, 732.772.0330, FOXHOLLOWVINEYARDS.COM
SHOES WITH PERSONALITY Can a shoe say “you”? The footwear brand Trask has an identity and a definite look and feel: Think rugged (yet refined) American West. The finest leathers are gathered from around the globe, and traditional production methods achieve a timeless quality that is beyond passing trends. Trask is an American icon that embodies the spirit (and sometimes even the hides) of the American West. Rugged. Refined. Masculine. Now that’s personality.

THE GARMANY GUIDE COLD PLAY
BASIE’S HIGH NOTE
Here’s good news for fans of the arts. The Count Basie Theatre is expanding and, to fit its bigger role and footprint, has changed its name to the Count Basie Center for the Arts. The center will nearly double in size and become one of the region’s largest performing arts facilities. There will be an arts and education building that will host, among other things, classrooms and a second performance venue. Here’s a quick preview of the upcoming fall/winter season: Oct. 1: The Beach Boys Oct. 3: Australian Pink Floyd Show Oct. 4: Arlo Guthrie—Alice’s Restaurant Oct. 6 The Return of Kenny Vance Oct. 7: Pat Metheny Oct. 12–14: Phoenix Productions Presents 1776 Oct. 16: Goo Goo Dolls Oct. 23: Music of Cream Oct. 24: Capitol Steps Oct. 25: Johnny Mathis Oct. 26: Dead on Live Oct. 27: Joan Jett & the Blackhearts Oct. 28: Take Me to the River: New Orleans Oct. 30: The Wood Brothers Oct. 31–Nov. 1: The Wizard of Oz Nov. 9–11, 16–18: Phoenix Productions Presents The Hunchback of Notre Dame Nov. 12: Elf the Musical Nov. 23: Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert Nov. 24: A Charlie Brown Christmas Live Nov. 25: The Brian Setzer Orchestra Nov. 29: Soweto Gospel Choir Nov. 30: An Intimate Evening with Kristin Chenoweth Dec. 1: Monty Python’s Spamalot Dec. 10: Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis Dec. 11: A Christmas Carol Dec. 12: Vienna Boys Choir Dec. 13: The Irish Tenors Holiday Celebration Dec. 19: A Magical Cirque Christmas Dec. 20: Darlene Love’s “Souled” Out Christmas VISIT THEBASIE.ORG/EVENTS/ FOR UPDATED INFORMATION.
It’s time to think about outerwear once again. Where do you start? Put these two brands on your radar: The Italian company Brunello Cucinelli specializes in fine cashmere and informal ready-to-wear clothes, with top craftsmanship and sharp design. What else would you expect from a firm whose headquarters is in a 14th-century castle? Next, Loro Piana. This wellknown brand had humble beginnings as wool merchants in the early 19th century, but today they go all over the world (can you believe even Mongolia?), to find you the finest fabrics. And it’s the quality of the fabrics combined with Loro Piana’s manufacturing skill that ensures that your jacket will not only look fantastic but feel great too. Ask your Garmany salesperson about both of these superb brands. Stylish outerwear will make the cold winter a little easier to take.
A NAME YOU ALREADY TRUST Garmany carries a special brand we don’t want you to overlook. It’s been around for about five years, and it’s a name you know (and love): Garmany! Yes, we have our own line of private-label suits, both off-therack and made-to-measure. The made-to-measure option lets you have it your way—you can select the fabric, linings, buttons and style designs to fit your taste. You even get a customized, embroidered monogram on the inside lining—and all in about three weeks. The Garmany line includes ultra-quality suits from Italy (in the $3,495 range), as well as a value selection (starting at $895), but either way you know you’ll get a great-fitting suit that will make you look fantastic.
ASK MR. ETIQUETTE
Johnell Garmany explains how to sail through life without giving offense. When is it appropriate to wear sneakers? —Overwhelmed in Oceanport Fashion keeps evolving, so there are more circumstances when it’s acceptable to wear sneakers. Pairing them with a soft sport jacket and jeans is the latest trend, and it’s a great look. Leather lace-ups in rich shades of brown or gray are perfect for fall and winter. For spring and summer or when you’re vacationing in a warm location, lighten up your look with gray, tan or white sneakers. You can’t go wrong with Italian-made sneakers by Common Projects or Lanvin. Remember not to get carried away with a colorful running sneaker—save those for the gym!

THE GARMANY GUIDE THAT FARMTO-TABLE TASTE
“What’s a good place to eat around here?” people always ask us. Here’s a fave of Johnell Garmany: Ninety Acres in Peapack-Gladstone. Fresh, farm-to-table food doesn’t get any better. A superb restaurant focusing on seasonal specialties and a different harvested food each month, it’s backed up by a 12-acre sustainable farm that grows food on the premises. And the setting can’t be beat: It’s on a 500-acre estate that was once owned by the king of Morocco. 2 MAIN ST., PEAPACK, 908.901.4701, NATIRAR.COM/NINETY_ACRES/
The family behind Red Tank Brewing—the Arcaras—saw their passion come to fruition (or fermentation, if you will) this summer when their storefront opened in Red Bank. They care about beer, about each other and their customers. You can taste that sincere dedication—and it helps that they’ve mastered the science of beer-making too.

GLOVE CARE 101
One detail can upgrade your entire look this fall: a pair of leather gloves. Whether you prefer the rustic look of chestnut-brown leather lined with supple shearling or the sleek, mod styling of onyx driving gloves, one pair can last season after season. To retain the fit, hue and comforting smell you fell in love with, try these simple tips: Finesse the fingers: When putting on your leather gloves, avoid pushing down between the fingers. Instead, gently pull the cuff toward your wrist by alternating between the palm side and the back-hand side. To remove the gloves, take hold of the fingertips and pull off all five simultaneously. Give them a stretch: To keep your favorite pair in shape, stretch the gloves over the edge of a table by holding the fingertips in one hand and the cuff in the other to form a right angle. Rest is best: While your leather gloves may suit any fall look, even accessories need a break. To keep your gloves looking as good as new, wear them no more often than every other day. If you have no gloves of another type, consider picking up two pairs of the same style and alternating. Keep them dry: Because most fine leather gloves are drum-dyed to create a depth of color, not sprayed with a finish, they are vulnerable to humidity and rain. One way to avoid moisture-caused stains and spots is to put the gloves away when the forecast calls for rain. If they do get wet, hang them to dry in a room-temperature area for at least a day. If there’s a dark stain, sprinkle talcum powder on the spot and gently rub with a soft cloth. Keep them clean: Leather gloves should never be submerged in water, but there are other ways to wash away the salt, germs and grime that may be building up. Prepare a lukewarm water and soap mix, using a mild cleanser, such as Marseille or saddle soap, and spot-clean. Allow the gloves to dry naturally. A little extra care and effort can keep your leather gloves looking great and fitting fabulously throughout the season. After all the times they’ve kept your hands warm, don’t they deserve a little love in return?

THE GARMANY GUIDE THEATER IS ALIVE AND WELL AT TWO RIVER THEATER
It’s been long proven that the theater isn’t dead, and we have vital, vigorous local companies like Two River Theater to thank for that. Founded in 1994, Two River Theater is recognized by the national theater community for its new-play commissioning program, launched in 2010. Here’s a look at some highlights of its upcoming schedule, but keep an eye on its website for the up-to-date info:

DIAMOND IN THE NOT-SO-ROUGH TEAMING UP WITH BOOMER Boomer Esiason hung up his No. 7 jersey long ago, but we think the retired NFL quarterback looks better in a tailored suit— and we make sure he does! Garmany is once again Esiason’s official wardrobe provider for his weekly appearances on Showtime’s Inside the NFL. “After receiving my first suit from Garmany,” the former New York Jets (as well as Cincinnati and Arizona) star has said, “I can tell you, I’m the best-dressed guy on Showtime.” That’s a bold statement, considering that the fashion competition on the show includes host James Brown, football Hall of Famer Ray Lewis and former Giants’ quarterback Phil Simms. They’re all dapper guys, but we think Boomer’s got them beat. “Boomer always looks good,” Simms says. “He takes a lot of pride in what he wears.” See what they’re wearing on Inside the NFL, which airs at 9 p.m. every Tuesday throughout the season. While we’re honored to outfit Boomer in the best sportcoats, shirts and ties, we’re just as proud to support his charity. Our annual Garmany...BOOM! event, for example, benefits the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which raises money for cystic fibrosis awareness and research.
Must buying a diamond rank right up there with root canals and visits to your accountant? Not at Goldtinker in Red Bank, where Joe Romanowski has earned a reputation over the past 40 years as an honest, straightforward jeweler whose goals are to make sure his customers look amazing and to make buying a diamond simple and smooth. Joe is an internationally recognized jewelry designer with a veteran team of four jewelers, who have more than 100 years of industry experience among them. Head to Goldtinker and see how easy it is to buy a diamond and any other piece of jewelry you can think of. 24 BROAD ST., RED BANK, 732.531.8787, GOLDTINKER.COM
THE STARS OF STYLE
It’s easy to fall for George Clooney’s good looks or Anne Hathaway’s undeniable charm, but we’ll always remember Hollywood stars for their personal style. After all, as Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Style is eternal.” In Timeless Icons: The Style of Celebrities (Electa, $39), author Carlo Mazzoni—who’s editor-in-chief of The Fashionable Lampoon—gives us a history lesson on the stars who have sparkled most in Tinseltown. The photo book is filled with black-and-white images of style legends, past and present, showing the inseparability of fame and fashion. It’s divided into two parts: leading ladies and memorable men. You’ll spot a dreamy, casual Brigitte Bardot on the cover sporting a wool sweater, jeans and black leather boots. Inside, fashion ingénues, such as Bella Hadid and Taylor Swift, take their places among icons like Audrey Hepburn and Jane Birkin. The men’s section opens with Mick Jagger donning a Panama hat to go with his signature pout. Artful interior pages include shots of James Dean, Sean Connery, Kit Harrington and James Franco. Sponsored by the shoe and luxury leather brand Tod’s, the book is an enchanting, star-studded look at the fashions of the personalities whose style is truly eternal.
HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE ‘GARMANY’?
Type “Garmany” into any program with autocorrect—at once a blessing and bane of our lives—and it will change it to “Germany.” We’ve also noticed that some of our customers have trouble pronouncing Garmany. For the record, it’s Gar-MAH-nee. It doesn’t sound like “harmony” (although our store strives to be harmonious). Furthermore, the “G” in Garmany is hard like “gift,” not soft like—well, “Germany.” The name is unique—just like the store. Be sure to ignore autocorrect and your GPS so you wind up here in Red Bank and not somewhere between France and Poland.

From the “moonshine roots music” of Valerie June to the cosmic Americana of Sun Seeker, these contemporary artists are guaranteed to put you in good headspace. By Mark Dowden
“Organic moonshine roots music” is how Tennessee native Valerie June Hockett describes her body of work, but there’s nothing imitative about it. A skilled songwriter and musician, she effortlessly blends blues, bluegrass, folk, soul and classic pop into original ballads that are at once earthy and ethereal. Her voice, too, is one of a kind—high, light and twangy, raw, achy and emotive. That voice alone makes her recent release, The Order of Time, an absolute treat. The album: The Order of Time Go-to song: “Love You Once Made” Deeper dives: “If And,” as well as the powerful “Workin’ Woman Blues” from the album Pushin’ Against a Stone
Lilting, starkly melodic, whimsical and sometimes psychedelic, Sun Seeker is one of the more inventive current bands to emerge from a Nashville basement. Alex Benick (guitar), Asher Horton (bass) and Ben Parks (drums), now 22, have been hanging out and collaborating since eighth grade. Like one of their 1960s inspirations, The Band, these guys possess the poise and musicality to sound polished at a young age. They call their sound “cosmic American music,” and you’ll find it highly listenable. The album: Biddeford, their debut EP Go-to song: “Won’t Keep Me Up at Night” Deeper dives: “Might Be Time” and “Sunny Day Girls”
Mississippi Hill Country blues is a loose boogie style that can have a hypnotic effect on listeners. One of its foremost masters is R.L. Boyce, a protégé of the great R.L. Burnside. Although he started as a drummer, Boyce was destined to sing and play guitar, which he does with improvisational abandon. Every track on the album Roll and Tumble was recorded in one take, capturing the backyard-jam ethos of the Hill Country. Boyce’s extemporaneous lyrics are awesome. The album: Roll and Tumble Go-to song: “Been Around the World” Deeper dives: “Child of God” and “Going Down South”
HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER
After partying through his 20s and playing in a punk band, Californian M.C. Taylor moved to North Carolina to reboot and study folklore at Chapel Hill. A folk-rock breakthrough followed. Hiss Golden Messenger, with its shifting guest lineup, revolves around Taylor as guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. Through funky tunings, he blurs the line between minor and major keys, “so that the weight of the emotion rests solely on the vocal melody and the lyrical content,” he explains. Hear the sublime results on his latest. The album: Hallelujah Anyhow Go-to song: “When the Wall Comes Down” Deeper dives: “Gulfport You’ve Been on My Mind”; “Saturday’s Song” from Lateness of Dancers
The core of this playlist comprises chill female vocals, from the narcotic quality of Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star to the shifting falsetto of Joni Mitchell. A nice counterpoint is supplied by some iconic male voices—Sly Stone, Brian Wilson and Steve Miller. “Teenage Talk” by St. Vincent “Love and Mercy” by Brian Wilson “The Fall” by Rhye “I Summon You” by Spoon “California” by Mazzy Star “Ruby, My Dear” by Thelonious Monk

THE GARMANY GUIDE
OF MEN’S STYLE ...in which Johnell Garmany solves your sartorial dilemmas. What style or items have you most excited about fall? I love the new Brunello Cucinelli and Loro Piana collections. Eidos also has very sharp pieces this season. The looks from new creative director Simon Spurr has me—and everyone—excited. What is the most overlooked wardrobe item? It’s great that many guys pay attention to how they fit into a suit, sportcoat or pair of five-pocket pants, but there’s a good amount of them who forget that shoes can make or break an outfit. In many cases, it’s the most fashion-forward part of an outfit. You can have fun with Common Projects or Golden Goose sneakers, or dress it up with monk straps by Ferragamo and Santoni. And remember that boots are very functional and stylish—Magnanni and Trask have great designs. What’s a guy to wear when it’s unseasonably warm in fall? Fall weather can be tricky—it might be warm during the day and cool in the afternoon and night. That’s why layering is a good idea. I like to do a Garmany or Brunello Cucinelli shirt or Autumn Cashmere sweater with a light puffer vest. We have several
puffer vests with less fill, a couple by Paul & Shark and Cucinelli, that are ideal for fall and even work beneath a sportcoat. What’s new in outerwear? I can’t think of a collection that’s better than this season’s coats and jackets. They’re varied and versatile: You can go with a leather bomber or quilted piece by Belstaff, or a field jacket by Eidos or Isaia. Puffer coats are more popular than ever thanks to brands like Moncler and Canada Goose, both of which I love. But one of my new favorites is the fur-hooded coat by Mackage. It looks good and, yes, it’s definitely warm. For New Jerseyans who winter in Florida, how can they build a good wardrobe? That’s a great question because many customers and friends spend a lot of time in Florida. Polos are a no-brainer, but don’t forget about light sweaters and sportcoats—you’ll be happy you remembered during a chilly night or when air conditioners are turned up high. And don’t worry if you forgot something: Our staff consultants are always available to help, and they’ll send you what you need—wherever you are in the country. What fashion faux pas drives you crazy? The number of guys who dress sloppily amazes me. I’m not talking dressing down for the gym or backyard work. There are men who go to the office or a restaurant wearing sportcoats and suits that are ill-fitting—jacket sleeves that
are too long, pants that are too baggy. Even on weekends, you can still look put-together while being comfortable. A soft sportcoat can dress up jeans for a casual but polished look. What are your favorite accessories of the season? I always wear a Loro Piana scarf, or at least one is always at arm’s length in case the temperatures suddenly drop. But we also have a new selection of Kiton silk scarves for all price points, some of which will move into my rotation, as well as Isaia pocket squares in fun patterns. I want to get my holiday shopping done early this season. What’s a good gift to get my brother? Help him update his work look with a sleek Alfred Dunhill leather briefcase or business card holder. It’s perfect whether he’s an office-guy or not. You also can get him a Jonas Studio bracelet—they’re edgy and masculine—or Master & Dynamic headphones. What are the hot colors for guys this fall? We’re seeing a lot of white—in outerwear and casual pants. Burgundy and deep berry shades are also popular for sweaters and sportcoats. What style or trend do you think is on the verge of making a comeback? While the sneaker cycle is still making its rounds, wearing dress shoes with jeans and cotton pants is big again.
What does “luxury” mean to you? Luxury isn’t how expensive an item is, rather it’s how it feels. And nothing feels more luxe than cashmere.

FOR FALL AND WINTER
Styles range from wild prints to Western-inspired suits.
Fur prowled the fall runways and, well, we’re in love. Let’s just say the looks are far from what you’d find in Grandma’s closet; they’re modern, hip and undeniably edgy. Take Cinq à Sept and Jonathan Simkhai’s furry toppers: Bubble-gum pink was Cinq à Sept’s color of choice. Underneath, a silk slip in a matching hue added to the playful appeal. Simkhai, on the other hand, opted for a rich rust. How to take it to the next level? Cinch a chunky leather belt around your waist—voilà! If an all-pelt coat isn’t your preference, don’t fret: Slip into Ganni’s brown leather jacket instead. Polar bear trim along the collar, plus dramatic bell sleeves, makes just enough of a statement—furreal!
WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Whether it’s topping a silky slip dress with a chunky knit (see Saloni) or throwing a trucker tee over a boyfriend-inspired flannel (à la See by Chloé), layering is in for fall. But what makes this old trend new again? Designers’ unconventional styling: Mixing fabrics, shapes and patterns brings some never-before-seen intrigue. Cue Rag & Bone, which always makes streetwear look fresh—this time, by teaming a hoodie with a tailored leather trench. And thanks to Vince, workwear has gotten an upgrade. Throw an asymmetrical sweater over a basic white button-down to instantly take it from classic to cool. Scared of bulk? Don’t be! If there’s one thing See by Chloé teaches us, it’s that a puffer can be flattering…as long as it’s cropped at the waist.
There’s no denying the pantsuit has a great ability to combine style with power, so it’s no surprise the trend has resurfaced. But this go-round, the office favorite is getting a playful update that we can’t wait to sport. Example? Veronica Beard’s Western-inspired ensemble: Her rust-colored uniform, paired with a denim button-down and cowboy belt, is quirky yet chic enough for the boardroom. Promise! Simple more your style? Give Marissa Webb’s gray get-up a try. You’ll make an entrance once those extra-wide gauchos swish by. And for the ladies who aren’t afraid of a little sparkle and shine, our girl Rachel Zoe has got you covered. Her metallic blazer and trousers will take you from day to night seamlessly. Pair with a simple tee while at work, then for happy hour, dare to go bare!
Spotted: Leopard and cheetah print, which decorated the fall runways in all its animalistic glory. Every fashion-girl’s favorite pattern was splashed on everything from shoes and bags to dresses and coats. Enter Rebecca Taylor’s head-to-toe ensemble, which led the pack. The designer proves a matching peacoat, sheath and booties can be fierce. The key: styling the motif in different tones, fabrics and sizes for depth and dimension. Allleopard-everything not your style? Opt for Pam & Gela’s bomber, which adds edge to an all-black get-up. Or keep it easy-breezy in Rag & Bone’s maxi, which is simply chic.

THE GARMANY GUIDE
How to capitalize on the season’s hot trends!
Probably the most playful pattern to rule the runway, polka dots were spotted just about everywhere—some big, some small, some sparkly and some flouncy. So who mastered the trend? To start, we’re dying to slip into Veronica Beard’s ruched-andruffled dress, which, by the way, is giving us some serious ’80s vibes. The one-shoulder design and body-hugging fit add some serious sizzle to this spotted number. If the ’60s speak to you, Ganni’s shift is your go-to. Large white specks adorning a black sequin mini is totally mod. Mixing-and-matching your thing? Take a cue from Caroline Constas. The sweet motif looks edgier than ever thanks to her inverted crop top and swishy skirt combo. Who’s ready to party?
BACK TO BASICS
We’re not saying streetwear is out (so don’t stop sporting it!), but here’s what we are saying: Less athleisure is hitting the runways, giving way to classics that are stealing the spotlight. Blazers, tailored bottoms, stripes, checks and plaid—heritage pieces are making a major comeback. Coming in on top: Caroline Constas’ iteration of the traditional sportcoat. How to make it modern? Wear it as a mini dress. Next up: Dorothee Schumacher’s fitted dress. The zip front gives this timeless style a chic update. Last, but not least, No. 21, which proves the easiest way to take checkered to the next level is as simple as mixingand-matching.
LADY IN RED
Black, step aside. Red, you’re up! The ultimate power color, there’s no surprise ruby-hued footwear dominated the kick game this season. And while the bold color might seem like an intimidating choice, it’s all about pairing it with the perfect outfit. Case in point: Stuart Weitzman’s crimson combat shoe, which is sure to make any monochrome ensemble sing. If you’re a jeans and T-shirt kind of gal, Tabitha Simmons’ cherry ankle-skimmers will instantly spice up your denim (and your life!). Sporting a frilly floral frock? Step into Aquazzura’s slouchy scarlet booties to give your flirty style a fierce finish.

A Super Natural
At 33, Israeli native Gal Gadot is a military veteran, a former beauty queen and a big-screen sensation. By Donna Rolando
include the action crime thriller Criminal (playing the wife of heartthrob Ryan Reynolds) and the action comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses (she’s a secret agent). She’s clearly earned her comedy chops—but also looks forward unironically to at least two more spin-offs with Wonder Woman anticipated through 2019. Gadot was in law school when the acting bug bit her so hard she couldn’t ignore it. Although as a kid she always craved attention (at age 5 she soaked adult party guests with a hose just to get laughs), it wasn’t until her success with the Miss Israel pageant that she recognized her true calling and dropped the law books for a lucrative modeling and acting career. Today she pleads her case in the court of fan opinion—and her runway past can’t hurt when it’s time to dress to the nines and beyond. Gadot’s not shy about wearing a Christian Dior dress in a bright red or showing some skin with her crimsonsequined Armani Privé gown slit up the thigh. She’s also embraced Millennial Pink with a stylish Oscar de la Renta suit; yet at a ballgame, she looks like the gal next door in a beige trench coat, black leggings and flats. Hollywood’s glitz doesn’t seem to have gone to this star’s head—her priorities remain family: her husband, Israeli real-estate developer, Yaron Varsano; and their two daughters, Alma, 6, and Maya, 1. She imagines her films being a legacy to her children, and acting gives her months off for her favorite role of all: mom. Where is the limit for this star who apparently has it all— looks, talent, brains and commitment? One can only wonder.
h, what a Gal! When Israeli-born actress and supermodel Gal Gadot took on the iconic role of Wonder Woman in the 2016 movie Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, she had a tough audience to please: DC Comics fans. But she came through like a warrior, repeating the role last year in Justice League and in the superheroine’s own big-screen saga, Wonder Woman. To those who have followed Gadot’s career since she played Gisele in the Fast and the Furious series starting in 2009 (in which she performed many of her own stunts), all of this was the fulfillment of an almost obvious destiny. At a youthful 33, this former supermodel and ubiquitous cover girl can look back on an illustrious life already: She was crowned Miss Israel 2004 at age 18, served as a combat instructor in the Israeli Defense Forces and just this year snagged a spot on Time’s annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people. (In the magazine’s trademark star-does-star approach, her writeup was penned by none other than Lynda Carter, TV’s Wonder Woman in the 1970s.) Of course, the double-W is more than a career-maker for Gadot. It’s also a platform for promoting her feminist goal, which she defines as equality for all. “I feel I’ve been given such a huge opportunity to show the strong, beautiful side of women—finally,” she says. And Wonder Woman fits the bill because of her independent spirit. “She’s not relying on a man,” says Gadot, “and she’s not there because of a love story.” That’s not to say that Gadot does every thespian turn on a soapbox—indeed, she’s mixed things up. Her credits
9/14/18 4:23 PM
On screen, Wonder Woman wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be caught without her bulletproof bracelets and golden lasso. But when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to dress to the nines, actress Gal Gadot prefers the glamorous looks of Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior.

THE LEADING MAN
Sheer Magnetism Actor Michael Fassbender exerts a powerful pull on and off the screen. Even as a bad guy, he’s got the goods.
Dangerous Method and Rochester in Jane Eyre, and his full-frontal-nude scene as a sex addict in Shame set tongues wagging that nature had not shortchanged him. Critics say Fassbender is endowed with real talent too— despite recent clunkers like The Snowman and Assassin’s Creed—and works his best screen magic with roles calling for intensity. Indeed, Fassbender has a personal magnetism even Magneto might envy. People watch what he does and what he wears—he’s known to favor such brands as Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada and Louis Vuitton and has been seen in photo shoots in jeans, polos and designer shirts. Folks clamor for news of his personal life too, though there he’s a bit more guarded. “I’m not going to talk about my private life with a total stranger until I feel the need to,” Fassbender once told a reporter. “Why would I?” Well, we’re curious! Word has it that Fassbender lives in Portugal with his wife, Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (an Oscar winner for 2015’s The Danish Girl), whom he met during the 2014 filming of The Light Between Oceans. The couple would surely have been swarmed by paparazzi when they wed in October 2017 on the Spanish island of Ibiza—but they managed to keep news of the ceremony secret until afterward. What more will we learn in years to come about this dynamo, on and off the screen? Whatever it is, it’s bound to be intense.
Whether he’s donning a polo shirt and jeans or a double-breasted chalk stripe suit, actor Michael Fassbender always knows how to look good—even when he’s playing the bad guy on screen.
ou’re forgiven if the name Michael Fassbender brings to mind his portrayal of the archvillain Magneto in the X-Men movies, starting with X-Men: First Class in 2011. That was an indelible performance—even though the star has dismissed it as merely “some dude shouting.” But you can’t find all of this versatile actor’s tricks in the pages of Marvel comics. He’s played everything from Apple founder Steve Jobs (in the eponymous 2015 movie) to a vicious slaveowner (in 12 Years a Slave, 2013)—to cite two roles that have earned him Academy Award nominations. Now 41, Fassbender was born April 2, 1977, in West Germany. But early on, his family traded an industrial neighborhood for Ireland’s County Kerry, where his parents ran Killarney’s West End House restaurant. At 17, after being cast in a play, Fassbender knew drama was his calling. So, it was off to the Drama Centre in London to learn his craft—until he dropped out in 1999 to tour with the Oxford Stage Company. His film debut as a Spartan warrior in the 2007 fantasy war epic 300 proved he was on the right track. (Before that, you’d recognize him only for his role in a Guinness commercial.) And his adherence to a 600-calorie-a-day diet to prepare for the role of IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands in Hunger (2008) shows how far he’s willing to go for an epic performance. The year 2011 was especially big: That’s when Fassbender portrayed psychoanalyst Carl Jung in 2011’s A

BEAUTY IS A BEAST
Engineers loaded the Aston Martin DB11 with a monstrous V8 engine that takes you from 0–60 in four seconds—because you can’t get by on good looks alone.
Leave it to Aston Martin to figure out a formula proving that eight isn’t always less than 12. The legendary British automaker has reinvented the mighty DB11, creating a lighter, easier-tohandle (who knew that was possible?) alternative to the previous 12-cylinder model. The new DB11—as well as its drop-top Volante trim—is powered by a German-made, 503-horsepower V8 engine that does the 0-60 mph sprint in a blistering four seconds—only one-tenth of a second off its sibling’s pace. And, of course, it’s packed with all the gadgets associated with the Aston Martin brand. Spoiler alert: This car is expected to make a bang in 2019’s Bond 25.
Choose Aston Martin Q, the bespoke treatment that will outfit the car with soft textured surfaces, patterned stitching, custom colors and more.
Say goodbye to chrome! Dark exterior trim, including the black detail of a purse-lipped grille, is a style 180 for Aston Martin.
The lightweight design of Mercedes-AMG’s twin-turbo V8 engine— tuned to Aston Martin’s specs—ensures the new DB11 has as much pep as its V12 sibling (though 503 horsepower also comes in handy).
The engine, combined with a new and unique exhaust system, creates the glorious roar that exotic sports car owners crave.
9/14/18 4:12 PM
Luxurious details cover every square inch of the interior, from full-grain leather seats to an automated up-and-away steering column. Even closing the door is an event, thanks to suede pulls.
Radio and climate controls are adjusted through the MercedesBenz COMMAND infotainment system. In addition to the 8-inch display, the car’s other electronic highlights include a 360-degree camera and Wi-Fi.
If this car isn’t sexy enough, opt for the Volante V8. It has the same ride and features—in a convertible.
The DB11’s sculpted body is matched by the various cuts and styles of its 20-inch, 10-spoke wheels.
Grocery shopping in an Aston Martin? Of course! The DB11 now comes equipped with a foot-activated trunk release, making it a heck of a lot easier to load packages.
Whether the lights are on or off, smoked-out blade taillights give followers an aggressive stare.
A pair of hood vents and a black bezel around the LED headlamps are two of this beauty’s distinguishing features.
This performer is also practical. Folding side mirrors are fully automatic and have hidden LED indicator lamps.

gone to the dogs: resorts that cater to your best friend F
rom coast to coast, there are elegant hotels that not only treat you like a king, but respect your pup’s royal pedigree too. Pets are welcomed—not just allowed—in these luxe lodges, which pamper them with treats, concierge walking, lush grounds for romping and other perks. Five standouts are spotlighted on the following pages. Truth be told, it may cost a little more to take Fido along. But is your best friend worth it, or what? And think what you’ll save on kennel costs!
Can’t imagine vacationing without your pet? Don’t worry— some luxury hotels go out of their way to keep Fido’s tail wagging.
CYPRESS INN, Carmel, California
Dogs will know they’re getting the luxe treatment when they’re served grilled chicken in a doggie bowl. But what could be more appropriate for an establishment co-owned by actress and animal rights activist Doris Day? Right in the heart of Carmel, this historic landmark inn with 1920s-era Spanish architecture has been called the nation’s most dog-friendly hotel. But it’s not only the inn that loves our furry friends. The city, too, is simpatico and puts out a dog-friendly guide to its attractions. For instance, dogs can run along the beautiful Carmel Beach or stroll on a leash through the quaint village where store owners are ready with a doggie treat and water. Other highlights—for humans—are king suites with fireplaces, live music in the hotel’s cozy living room and breakfast with fresh fruit and baked goods. Also check out Terry’s Restaurant & Lounge for Moroccan chicken, grilled rack of lamb and other fare made with fresh local ingredients. Is the lodging industry going to the dogs? Que será, será!

FOUR SEASONS HOTEL, Houston, Texas
Ruff will feel like a VIP (Very Important Pet) when he stays with you in this swanky spot in jumpin’ downtown Houston. The hotel’s pet policy, says management, is designed so that owners are stress-free and don’t have to worry about their pets. A concierge handles daily dog walks, and amenities like special bowls, toys and water bottles all make the place seem like home. And if you prefer to take your own dog for a longer walk, nearby Discovery Green is a great option. Humans can find their luxury pampering at Four Seasons’ Spa & Fitness Center. Discover a variety of massages to nurture your body, or have some fun with yoga and wine at a group exercise class. This spa, with many eyecatching features, made the cover of American Spa magazine in 2016. Then there’s the spacious, newly renovated lobby, which not too modestly calls itself “Houston’s Living Room,” ready for sipping, socializing or just relaxing. Also, don’t miss the chic bourbon bar, Bayou & Bottle, or the Topgolf Swing Suite, featuring golf simulators. While your dog lives the life of Riley at this raved-about facility, maybe you can focus on your game.

THE ST. REGIS ASPEN RESORT, Aspen, Colorado Want to trade walking the dog for relaxing poolside with a strawberry daiquiri or spend more time on the powdery slopes? At this resort you have only to whisper your wish, and guilt is gone. The staff at the redesigned St. Regis is happy to take the leash for a while, and also provides bowls, treats and a doggie bed while you leave your cares behind at the Reméde Spa. (Try the soothing waterfall, oxygen lounge or the cold-and-warm plunge pools.) There’s also a fitness center and gift boutique. Although most people come for the slopes, that’s only part of the outdoor fun in a region also known for horseback riding, bicycling and whitewater rafting. By day, take Rover for a romp at Ruby Park only a few minutes away. By night, Mountain Social beckons you to sip a cocktail by the fireplace and reflect on this best-ever vacation for you and your four-legged friend.

THE PENINSULA HOTEL, New York, New York
Right down to its location—just four blocks from Central Park—The Peninsula is a pooch paradise. While you might visit for the abundant shopping and entertainment in Midtown Manhattan, your pet will love the park and the pampering that starts with a personalized welcome card and water bottle. Any dog 60 pounds or under is welcome. Fido will have all the comforts of home—a doggie bed, bowl and treats—and (if you’re in a suite) a collar, leash, bandana and small toy, all with the Peninsula logo. He’ll wag his tail and you’ll be worry-free as you discover the awardwinning Peninsula Spa, the cutting-edge fitness center and the glass-enclosed pool. Perhaps, after a day of hitting the stores, your much-deserved rest will come on the sun terrace with its panoramic city views, followed by a taste sensation at The Peninsula’s signature Clement restaurant, and when the sun sets, a toast in the rooftop bar, Salon de Ning.

THE COTTAGES AT NANTUCKET BOAT BASIN, Nantucket, Massachusetts For a laid-back beach experience both you and your pet will love, this inn offers 17 “Woof Cottages” that are often in demand. Dogs are greeted by their own pet concierge, a lab/spaniel named Bailey, who knows this famous island like the back of his paw. Guests and their pooches have all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen to make favorite meals, doggie beds, personalized pet tags and nautical chew toys—just right for lodgings with views of the blue harbor. Dog-walking services are available, but visitors also may enjoy taking a long trek with their pet at neighboring Sanford Farm. After making their pet happy, visitors can indulge themselves with a first-class massage or spa treatment at the nearby White Elephant Spa, where the scenery rivals the serenity you experience. Or hop on a complimentary bike for a tour of the town, perhaps stopping for a bite at one of the many eateries. There’s also a free bus to Nantucket’s beaches—a not-to-be-missed destination.

you should know about made-tomeasure
THE PERFECT FIT
9/16/18 1:12 PM
One and done Forget about spending hours trying on clothes in a tight fitting room. Once tailors have confirmed your measurements and design selections at the initial meeting, your job is essentially done. Made-to-measure requires few fittings, or in some cases none at all. (That’s more time to shop for ties, pocket squares and shoes!) But be patient: The turnaround time for a suit can range from two weeks to two months.
what’s your fancy? Windowpane pattern, notch lapel, pleated pants. Made-to-measure programs have dozens of items you can customize—from buttons to linings to pockets and more—so scan your closet and decide what you need and what you want. Not sure what’s in style? Trust your made-tomeasure specialists to help guide you to make the best decisions.
only the best fabrics The fabric you choose for your made-tomeasure garment comes from a curated selection of mills. Narrowing the group of mills used as sources helps make sure that you receive the best and most luxurious fabrics.
it’s all about the base After your measurements are taken, tailors will select a base pattern that most closely matches your numbers. This base is then altered to correspond with your measurements, ensuring that your suit or shirt will fit to a T.
MTM vs. OTR Don’t get us wrong: We love the economy of off-the-rack garments, and they can create memorable looks. But face it—they don’t fit like a made-to-measure suit or shirt. Not every guy is an average Joe, so standard retail sizes and designs won’t always cut it. Because made-tomeasure is based on your measurements, each piece is guaranteed to fit perfectly.

Rather than alter the espresso Wayne Manor paneling of this formal living room, Mary McDonald let the sun shine through, using fabrics in refreshing hues like cream and lemon yellow. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard not to notice the Asian motif on the vintage chinoiserie and the bone pagoda collection, but she added a French flavor as well: The gallery wall features goldframed photos of a Paris map.

Opposite page, pretty in pink is McDonald’s mantra, and she uses it as a neutral in fashion designer Jill Roberts’ home offfice, where a zebra-skin rug, antiques and a ’60s chinoiserie mirror complete the look.

A blue-and-white scheme extends to the antique walls, chairs and custom-stenciled seagrass rug. The 19th century French boudoir chair also has the blues, but in velvet. Putting antiques in a modern setting is a passion for McDonald.

In truth, the ancient practice has never been just for women. Now a new, tougher type makes that super-clear. By Lee Lusardi Connor

ever get their heart rates above a certain level. In Warrior Sculpt, we have cardio and core conditioning but also yoga breath, body awareness and flexibility.” Participants are guided through equal-length segments, with a music playlist curated to motivate and inspire. “By the end, you’ve had all the benefits of mindfulness and breath-body connection—and you’re a sweaty puddle,” says Haggerty. Indeed, sweating and heat are common themes in the power yoga movement. Sweat provides the physical evidence of exertion some fitness fans crave, and heat facilitates stretching and dilates the vascular system. “Vasodilation lets blood flow more easily through the body, which is the way the body delivers nutrients to all its tissues,” Gallagher explains. Temperatures in hot yoga studios vary, but the ideal heat index—which is a calculation of the room’s air temperature and percentage of humidity—is around 110 to 112°F, Gallagher says. (The American Council on Exercise recommends drinking a lot of water and wearing comfortable form-fitting clothing that allows easy movement. Some conditions—heart or lung disease, for example—may make hot yoga inadvisable; check with your doctor.) Perhaps counterintuitively, all that exertion leads to a calmer, more peaceful approach to the rest of the day. “One woman wrote me a note telling me how her husband had changed since he began taking Warrior Sculpt,” says Haggerty. “He used to come home from work and be strict with the kids and harp about things in the house, but through the class he learned awareness and how not to bring a stressful job home with him.” Fierce Grace’s Isaac says she has seen similar effects in the executives in her own classes. “If only we could get every member of every board of every corporation to do yoga before meetings, board meetings would be much more productive—and nicer,” she says. Similar benefits are reaped by military personnel at Hot Asana, Gallagher reports. “They do incredibly challenging work, and yoga has a huge impact on the mind and spirit as well. It’s a holistic approach that, even if it can’t be articulated, is deeply felt.” Bottom line? “Drop your bias and give yoga a go,” says Gallagher. “I just turned 49, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen guys at the back of the room look at each other like, ‘Mind blown. This woman is handing me my butt, and I didn’t expect that.’”
or many men, working out means pushing ever harder, building strength and muscles and sweating a lot. That’s why so many are taking up yoga. Yoga’s physical benefits are well documented. They include better sleep, improved cardiovascular function, heightened immune-system performance and weight loss. Oh yes, and increased sexual stamina. Still, for years, fitness aficionados regarded yoga as a “feminine” practice. “For many, the idea of yoga has had an airy-fairy, stretchy, skinny, dancer, female-body connotation,” says Virginia Gallagher, founder and owner of the Hot Asana Sweat & Soul chain, which has locations in North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire and Colorado. “While a yin-style practice does have a meditative quality, a yang-style targets the muscles and blood and is a more ‘power’ approach. That’s the entry door the U.S. male population needs to get into yoga.” And ever more yoga studios are finding ways to open that door. Fierce Grace is a new yoga system that blends strength and flexibility and has taken off in the U.K. It recently opened its first U.S. studio in New York City. The hot yoga classes are geared to either gender and any age or ability level, says Kelly Isaac, co-owner of the New York studio. “Still, knowing that a lot of guys feel intimidated about attending a yoga class, we made our branding a bit macho and tongue-in-cheek—for example, photos of tattooed guys in leather doing yoga poses,” she says. “Our space is cool, open, not too pretty, and our practice is strong, and that is more appealing to guys.” Military personnel make up a big chunk of participants in Hot Flow and Heated Power Vinyasa classes at Hot Asana’s Southern Pines, N.C., studio near Fort Bragg. Gallagher also created the 21-Day Power Yoga Course for Men’s Health magazine at the behest of one of her devoted clients, a sergeant in the Special Forces. “For military personnel, our approach is intense enough that it doesn’t feel unmasculine in any way,” Gallagher says. Warrior Sculpt, “a soulful yet fierce fusion of yoga and weights” offered at the national fitness chain Life Time, was also created with a holistic approach in mind. “This class filled the space in between kinds of workouts people tend to gravitate to,” says Katie Haggerty, group fitness national brand manager, who developed the program. “There are people who wouldn’t dream of entering a yoga studio, and people who do yoga or related exercises but don’t

THE SPORTING LIFE
Verbier is for you if you’re a royal—or want to ski and party like one. By Everett Potter
Only the savviest American skiers seem to have a clue about the Swiss resort Verbier. For Alpine ski culture, most of us think first of Zermatt, Austria’s St. Anton or maybe the Les Trois Vallées region of France. Typically, as in my case, it’s only word of mouth, often from British friends, that leads to a visit to Verbier. So here’s the report in a nutshell: For any traveler with a keen sense of style, a desire to be on the cutting edge of the European ski scene and a yearning for challenging pistes and chic accommodations, Verbier is the hands-down choice. The youngest of the major Swiss ski resorts, Verbier attracts an international community of rich and perhaps not-quite-so-rich vacationers. The daily drill is simple: ski all day, party all night and then repeat. “Go big or go home” is the unofficial rule for skiing and après-skiing in Verbier. In my experience, it’s a place to bring your spouse, partner or best friend and leave the kids at home. Dubbed “the Aspen of the Alps,” Verbier does bear a resemblance to that Rocky Mountain spot. This moneyed, French-speaking Suisse Romande resort attracts a youngish crowd to its discos and on-mountain restaurants, its luxury shops and chic hotels, as well as its challenging slopes. The Brits love it, often referring to it simply as “Verbs.” If you’re stargazing, you may catch a glimpse of such royals as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate); the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Harry and new bride Meghan); or Sarah, Duchess of York (Fergie, who was once employed here as a “chalet girl,” a wintertime babysitter and chef, and co-owns a chalet with ex-husband Prince Andrew). Such non-royals as singer-songwriter James Blunt, singer Diana Ross and entrepreneur Richard Branson are also fair game for sightings. Those glimpses could be at lunch at Le Carrefour or amid the flashing disco
lights at The Farm Club, which still sets the tone for nightlife 45 years after its founding. THE SKIING
Located in southwestern Switzerland in the canton of Valais, about a 90-minute drive or train ride from Geneva, Verbier is one of the largest lift-linked areas in the world. There are 93 lifts and an astonishing 256 miles of ski runs. Set at 8,200 feet, Verbier has reliable snow when lower-altitude resorts are running out of the stuff. With such a vast area, there’s a nearly endless menu for skiers. On a clear morning, after a few warm-up runs, I love heading up to the top of Mont Fort by cable car. Here at the resort’s highest peak, about 10,500 feet, there is a quite literally breathtaking panorama that includes the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe at 15,774 feet. From here, I like to ski down into the moguls with a guide—by far the smartest, safest way to ski offpiste in Verbier—in areas like Tortin, Gentianes, Mont Fort and Plan du Fou. There are far tougher off-piste areas, but they are best left to far more agile skiers. Come for the Freeride World Tour in March and you can see them throwing themselves off cliffs in a staggering display of athleticism and daring. After a challenging morning, I like nothing better than a languid alfresco lunch at Chez Dany with classic fondue or perhaps Swiss rösti at La Marmotte, with the obligatory glass or two of the local Fendant wine. THE VILLAGE & THE W VERBIER
Verbier may look as if it’s been around for centuries, but in fact it was only really developed after World War II. It is a spacious resort with bright, uninterrupted views of the mountains. The W Verbier is the essence of Verbier. Forget your notions of an urban W hotel. This property is
a cluster of four low-lying chalet buildings, linked by glass atriums and incorporating local wood and stone—as cutting-edge design-wise as anything in the Alps. The W is close to Place Blanche, and most of Verbier’s shops, restaurants and nightspots are along the road between here and Place Centrale. The W appeals to a well-heeled crowd ranging from ages 30 to 50-something, nearly all couples, and most of its 130 rooms are designed for a maximum of two guests. Those rooms are spacious enough, with large wooden balconies, blissful beds and floor-to-ceiling windows, with a gas fireplace visible from the bathroom as well as the bedroom. The essence of the W Verbier is that you get smart style as well as a two-minute walk to the gondola in the morning. The hotel’s AWAY Spa features an indoor pool that flows into an outdoor pool overlooking the Verbier Valley, a sauna, a hammam Jacuzzi and a fitness center. I’m partial to the Balinese massage, but the spa also has such esoteric rituals as a Bamboo & Lotus Scrub and even a Caviar Body Treatment. The Catalan flavors at the Eat-Hola tapas bar are courtesy of culinary director Sergi Arola, whose Madrid eatery won two Michelin stars. It is by far my favorite option, but there’s also Carve Sushi and W Kitchen on offer for diners. I rarely stay up all night anymore but if you’re so inclined, the W’s Curve nightclub makes it happen just a few minutes away from your room. How good is the hotel? In 2017, the World Ski Awards chose it as the World’s Best Ski Hotel. That’s a lofty pronouncement, so I’ll let you be the judge. But I would gladly return with my K2s and settle in for a week of the most rarefied Alpine pleasures in the world. And if there’s a royal at the table next to mine at Chez Dany, so much the better.
Opposite page, clockwise from top: The Verbier Ski Resort boasts more than 250 miles of ski runs, many of which require equal amounts of athleticism and fearlessness to conquer; dining options abound at the W Verbier hotel, including the Eat-Hola tapas bar—which is under the leadership of Michelin-starred culinary director Sergi Arola; Swiss mountain towns host Bell Dorado festivals, in which the loud tone of cowbells are said to drive away evil spirits and ensure green pastures; the guest rooms at the hotel feature a large wooden balcony and gas fireplace; known as the “Aspen of the Alps,” Verbier offers lively discos, challenging slopes and luxurious shops that attract a crowd ranging from age 30 to 50-something.

Droning On! With confidence built into its name, Surefly is the ’copter that doubles as a drone. By Timothy Kelley
It’s like nouvelle cuisine cooked up a ’copter. Planned for a 2019 debut at a price under $200,000, the Surefly from the Workhorse Group is powered by a BMW 600-cc, twin-cylinder generator engine that responds to joystick commands. You’ll need a pilot’s license to fly it, but because it’s classed as a light-sport aircraft, that credential requires fewer hours of training than does a standard helicopter pilot’s license.
on’t yawn next year when your neighbor opens his garage to show off his self-driving car—and by all means don’t ask with a snarky smile, “How high does it fly?” Fact is, by 2019 your own garage could be home to a self-driving vehicle that soars way above traffic. It’s the Surefly from the Ohio-based Workhorse Group, and it’s either a reimagined helicopter that can give you and your sweetheart a lift or a drone you can send home alone like a horse that knows the way. You decide. Set to hit the market next year for a close-to-the-ground price of under $200,000, the Surefly VTOL (vertical-takeoff-and-landing) craft has been building buzz since its debut at the 2017 Paris Air Show. It’s not the only “air taxi” in development, but while the others use electric motors alone, Surefly is powered by a gas combustion engine. It boasts a range of 70 miles, an hour’s flight time per tank and a maximum lift
capacity of 400 pounds—that’s two adults, or one adult and some stuff— thanks to eight propellers fixed in contra-rotating pairs on four arms. And to give you peace of mind that this is not your last adventure, its makers make triple-sure of Surefly. There’s full computer and electrical redundancy, and if the gas-powered generator fails, two 7.5-kilowatthour lithium-ion battery packs take over to assure a safe landing. If those balk too, there’s even a ballistic parachute to waft you to the ground. Did we say “garage?” With a fuselage and propellers crafted of carbon fiber, this nimble 1,100-pounder (for a helicopter, that’s svelte) can indeed fold its arms down to fit snugly into a standard car garage. And how high can Surefly fly? Workhorse puts its flight ceiling at 4,000 feet. For a personal vehicle so compact and nimble, that’s a lift for the spirits even in this tech-jaded age.

the world is your oyster Open up and explore all the flavors these beautifully briny bivalves have to offer. By Daria Meoli
ou’ve got to hand it to the oyster; it’s nothing if not diverse. The marvelous mollusk comes in more than 150 varieties, each with its own distinct taste and texture. For those looking to expand their oyster horizons or try these slippery little suckers for the first time this season, here are a few—forgive us—pearls of wisdom. While these gems of the sea can be enjoyed year-round, oyster aficionados agree that the briny bivalves are at their peak flavor between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. From the Hog Island Sweetwater to the First Light, the clever names for oyster varieties seem to go on forever. This nomenclature reflects where the oysters live, the type of water they filter and the way they are handled. However, there are only five distinct species of oysters found in the U.S.: Pacific, Atlantic, Kumamoto, European flat and Olympic. Geography matters too. Oysters raised on the West Coast, such as the Kusshi, Raspberry
Point, Goose Point and Royal Miyagi varieties, tend to be sweet, creamy, round and plump with deep edges. Their East Coast counterparts, including Wellfleets, Blue Points, Salt Ponds and Ram Islands, are usually brinier, chewier and narrower. Avoid an oyster if the shell is cracked, has holes or is open and will not close to the touch. Once the mollusk passes the shell test, the oyster meat should be plump and juicy and have a healthy sheen. To really taste each variety’s nuances, eat oysters raw. Whether you are ordering them at an oyster bar or preparing them at home, they should be kept alive until the moment before they are consumed. If you buy a bag of freshly harvested oysters and some are dead, all is not lost. These oysters can be grilled, fried or enjoyed in a stew or chowder. What to quaff with oysters? During the Civil War, Union General McClellan’s slowness caused Lincoln’s Secretary of War to
grumble that he was goofing off instead of pursuing Rebs. “This champagne and oysters on the Potomac must be stopped,” said Edwin Stanton—but even he couldn’t kill that classic pairing. Besides champagne, Vinho Verde or even Sauvignon Blanc are other good mollusk matches. But so are beers, such as India pale ales or fruity wheat beers—or porters, which offer a delicious break from the norm. A dry martini also pairs nicely. Whether you choose to savor these salty treats with a splash of lemon, with a hint of hot sauce or smothered in mignonette, there is one rule for eating oysters: Do not swallow them in one gulp. Oysters should be chewed to enjoy all the tightly packed taste. In the center of the oyster is a disc of muscle with a sweetness similar to scallops, and the belly pops with salty liquid. Chewing will mix these flavors together nicely. One last tip: Eating oysters can feel awkward, but slurp with confidence and don’t waste a drop of the salty goodness.
6 BRINY BITES MAINE BELONS
COFFIN BAY KING
Originally a Japanese cultured oyster, this fruity and firm variety is now common in the Northwest. The Kumamotos are mild and sweet and have a melon-like flavor that makes them ideal for first-time oyster eaters. Home: Washington
Belons, a type of European flat, were originally brought to Maine in the ’50s by scientists hoping to repopulate the region’s oyster beds. Today they are flourishing off the Atlantic coast. Maine Belons are harvested by divers and have a strong flavor with a metallic-tinny finish. These bivalves are not for the faint of heart. Home: Maine
Grown off the West Coast of Australia, Coffin Bay King oysters grow for six years instead of the usual 18 months and have up to 10 times more meat than the average oyster. While currently available only in Australia, Europe and Asia, this expensive delicacy (about $74 for one) can make for a sweet indulgence on overseas trips. Home: Australia
Wellfleets are exposed to the open air on the beach as the tides recede. This forces them to hold their shells closed tightly until the tide returns, giving their meat a firm texture. It takes between two to three years to cultivate these wild, potent, briny oysters. Home: Massachusetts
These Gulf Coast oysters are harvested right off the bulge of the Florida panhandle. This area has been called one of the “oyster miracle places.” Apalachicola is the last place in the United States where wild oysters are still harvested by fishermen in small boats using tongs. Home: Florida
Grown near Cape Cod, these hearty, meaty oysters are a bit rare but worth the hunt. Biting into the meat offers a burst of flavor with a creamy, citrus, vanilla-like finish. Home: Massachusetts

ON THE ROAD
in Good spirits Chef Nicholas Harary brings the best of Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail back home to his New Jersey restaurant. By Harry Dowden
hen you’re traveling with an acclaimed chefrestaurateur, excellent food and drink will undoubtedly be on the itinerary. And our reason for venturing on a three-day trip to Kentucky was deceptively simple: Choose single barrels of bourbon at multiple distilleries across the state for exclusive sale at Restaurant Nicholas and Nicholas Wines, Nicholas Harary’s trusted New Jersey institutions. During our flight down, I wondered about the rubrics of quality we’d be applying to the fine liquids we were about to cross paths with. “Is it good enough that I want more?” “Is it good enough that I want to explore it further?” “Is it good enough to spread the word?” Was I overthinking it? Perhaps. The big question Nicholas asks, I learned, before he tastes anything: “Is it good?” For Nicholas, “good” doesn’t just mean tasty. It means it’s good enough to share—with friends, family and the people who trust your judgment. And everything we tried during our time in the Bluegrass State wasn’t just good—it was delicious!
“WE DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME FOR THE CLEAR”: AN AFTERNOON AT WOODFORD RESERVE
Once our plane landed in Louisville, we wasted no time getting started. We rolled our windows down for the drive to our first stop, taking in the warm air and sights of the countryside. Stepping onto the Woodford Reserve property, I took a deep breath and became quickly accustomed to the tranquil atmosphere. This was a place where things took their time.
Nicholas and our guide for the day, PJ, became fast friends. Woodford is in a town called Versailles, although they don’t adhere to the original French pronunciation (“ver-say-elles” as opposed to “ver-sigh”). We laughed about our varying accents on our scenic walk through the property, stopping for lunch prior to our big tasting. Once we had a bit of food in us, Nicholas and PJ led the way to the spacious room where we’d be sampling barrels. Rather than straight single-barrel picks, the Woodford tasting had an interesting structure: Six single-barrel samples constitute the first “round,” with four making the cut. Round two was comprised of two-barrel blends of the four top picks. It was an interesting crash course explaining how blending can bring out unexpected flavors and certain barrels can surprise you when you spend a bit of time with them. The eventual winner of the bracket was loaded with sweet flavors of caramelized bread pudding and bananas foster, balanced by a hefty backbone of rye, cinnamon and anise. Satisfied with our pick, PJ led us through an aging rickhouse, the 80-degree temperature taking its toll after our tasting. It could have been worse, though: Temperatures on the highest level often reach 120 in the summers. (Woodford uses the common vertical stacking technique for its aging.) Glad that climate was on our side for this trip, we bid adieu to PJ and set off for Louisville proper. A NIGHT OUT IN LOUISVILLE: BOLD ART, BARBECUE & BOURBON COCKTAILS
We would’ve gladly stayed at Woodford Reserve, but it
was time to drop our bags off in the city. Our home for the next few nights was unorthodox in the best ways: The original in a line of museum hotels, the 21c is a comfortable, playful and intriguing space that we were all excited to stay at. A sculpture and large canvas prominently displayed in the lobby greeted us, unmistakably the work of Kehinde Wiley, the artist who recently painted former President Obama’s eye-catching portrait. Nicholas was challenged to find a spot for one of the hotel’s Red Penguins, guardians of the art that guests were encouraged to place in unusual locations. After freshening up and taking a quick look at the exhibits, we made our way down to Proof on Main, 21c’s in-house restaurant and bar. Greeted by a wall of whiskeys and an impressive cocktail list, we sat at the bar and took in the current décor (think psychedelic living room). I went for the Smoke Rings, which lived up to the name from a combo of spicy Buffalo Trace and smoky lapsang souchong tea. Nicholas opted for a Russell’s Reserve Old-Fashioned and chatted with the bartender about local bottled-in-bond picks. Laughs shared, drinks sipped, appetites sufficiently whet from a snack of citrusy grilled octopus, we made our way into the Louisville night in search of barbecue. Our quest was soon successful: Hammerheads was just what we needed after a day of traveling and drinking—low lights and food heavily portioned on wood platters. We were eager to try as much of their wares as we could. Eyes ended up being a bit bigger than stomachs, but not for lack of flavor—lamb ribs,

mac & cheese balls and jalapeño-lime aioli all made the rounds as Old Style Pilsners were quaffed. A great thing about barbecue: Not only is it a good source of protein, it is also a tried and true sleep aid. Satisfied with our feast, we slumped into our beds at the 21c and got some much needed rest for the big day ahead of us. DAWN OF DAY TWO: WARMING UP WITH WHITE DOG AT BARTON’S
After plenty of coffee in the Proof on Main dining room, we set out for a full day of bourbon adventures. Our warm-up was a tour of Barton’s Distillery, home to 1792 whiskey. Umbrellas in hand on the rainy morning, we followed our guide Rick through the grounds and got a sense of how large the operation is: Three tractor trailers of corn are delivered per day, and on the other end of the process, farmers line up waiting to pick up spent grain to feed their animals. Nicholas, bravely, was the first to try the “white dog,” an intense, clear and pure distillate not for the faint of heart: whiskey before the barrel, where the charred oak flavors and colors eventually will convert it to bourbon. The flavor was hot, akin to walking into the steamy stillroom itself, but you could taste the foundation of a great bourbon and sense how the flavors would blossom in the barrel. Luckily, no tasting was taking place at Barton’s that morning, and our palates were given time to recover after being acquainted with the white dog. TRANQUILITY AMONGST THE BARRELS: AN AFTERNOON AT WILD TURKEY
BACK TO THE CITY: SPONTANEOUS SUPPER WITH OLD FORESTER
It had been a whirlwind of a day, but we were well aware the fun wasn’t over yet. Nicholas and I tapped into our remaining energy reserves to gear up for another night on the town. Multiple sources had told us we needed to check out Rye, a modern spot with frequently rotating food and cocktail menus. We made our way over and settled in for our meal—little did we know that an up-in-the-air idea was about to come to fruition. As we perused the appetizers, master taster for Old Forester Jackie Z strolled in—three flasks in hand—and joined us for dinner and an impromptu barrel selection. It was clear Jackie had brought some choice barrel picks, and she had no shortage of great stories for us, too. In between laughs, everyone in attendance was in agreement on two specific menu items: a hearty pappardelle dish and a heart tartare. The food was on point, as were our Old Forester Old Fashioneds. The party left Rye with full stomachs and another barrel selection, not to mention late-night suggestions from Jackie. Even with all the fatty food and whiskey, her surprise visit had revitalized us to keep exploring the night. DOGGONE GOOD BOURBON AT PEARL’S
On our new friend’s tip, we hopped over to local hangout Pearl’s. There was no bouncer on duty, but we were inspected upon arrival: Our first greeting was from a friendly mutt, tail wagging and all. It was a good introduction to the low-key spot, which sports a loaded jukebox and old-school Christmas lights
illuminating the bar. This being Louisville, they had a great bourbon selection, of course. Some drank whiskey, some drank beer, all laughed into the night and listened to Nicholas regale us with tales of run-ins with The Boss. If we didn’t have to leave the next day, this definitely could have become a frequent weekend hangout. BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS AT FOUR ROSES
Nicholas was up early, mentally preparing for the tasting ahead at Four Roses. Our quick stop the day before had piqued our curiosities, and I wondered about the different permutations of their two mash bills (E & B, the latter being rye-heavy) and five yeast strains (each with a different predilection toward fruity, spicy, herbal or floral flavors). Our tasting guide, Mandy, wasted no time diving in. Water was on deck along with tortilla chips—corn snacks for corn drinkers. Nicholas tasted his way through seven different single barrels, narrowing it down to three and eventually choosing one whose contents would ultimately meet him back home. His signature is scrawled on the barrel head, like a flag planted in newfound land. The makeup is his secret for now, but a crash course in different flavor components was certainly eye opening. We thought we were about to be ushered out, but Mandy instead opened a back door and showed us a magical sight: a long line of freshly charred barrels waiting to be filled with distillate. The day before, Nicholas tried his hand at removing the bung; today, he had the opportunity to fill a barrel and hammer the bung in. RETURN TO THE NORTHEAST
The experience at Four Roses was just another indicator of the generosity the bourbon world was willing to extend our way. Nicholas’ curiosity was always met with excitement and a wealth of knowledge, and it was inspiring to see people interact and befriend one another over a product and craft they loved. Harary took pride in the barrels he selected, hoping to share a little bit of that welcoming spirit with the lucky folks poised to snag bottles in the future. The trip wasn’t just about abstract flavors, but about the people who put in the work to make an American product they can stand by and be proud of. I’ll be keeping tabs on Nicholas Wines, eager to see the excitement and enjoyment that will undoubtedly surround these bourbons. Food, wine or spirits, the gourmands of New Jersey are well-served by those who are willing to go the extra mile. As for Harary himself? I expect he’s already planning the next trip.

Tall sandwiches and hot soup were just the lunch we needed for the gray Kentucky afternoon. Admittedly, however, we weren’t too focused on the food—excitement was hitting us for our trip to Wild Turkey and the barrels we’d be sampling there. We arrived to a warm greeting from our guide Joanne, and were shuttled off past massive grain silos to get a look at their fermentation. Their open fermenters, all at different stages of the three-day yeasty process, were an impressive and imposing sight. Nicholas and I waved at the quality control operators who are stationed 24/7, but we weren’t offended that they didn’t see us—insuring the quality of bourbon is important work. Joanne dropped us at a rickhouse, wishing us good luck with our sampling. Inside, bourbon legend and blending mastermind Eddie Russell was in his element. Jotting notes on his clipboard amongst the cobwebs and barrels, we could tell right away that this was a man in no rush, in tune with his creations and well adjusted to the patience needed for them to reach their potential. Eddie was very generous with his time
and humour, making wry quips and letting Nicholas and I try our hand at knocking out bungs. We tasted through several special barrels of Russell’s Reserve, with two making a big impression on Nicholas. We even met “Snickers,” a barrel Eddie nicknamed for the distinctive caramel nuttiness it imparted. Nicholas and Eddie stood at the entrance to the rickhouse, looking out over the misty valley and the old railroad line that crossed the ravine. It was revealed that while the train no longer ran, the bridge was still used for a local bungee-jumping business. Asked if he had ever taken part in the daring leap, Eddie responded, “There’s not enough bourbon in all of Kentucky for me to try that.” Before leaving the hallowed grounds, back in the visitors center, we were lucky enough to meet Eddie’s father Jimmy Russell, the longest continuous master distiller in the bourbon world. Nicholas was welcomed and laughed with two gracious and humble generations of whiskey royalty.

Rebels in red and white
In California, knowing the rules but choosing to break them has yielded some wonderfully unusual wines. By Josh Sens
hen most winemakers describe their work, they lean on artsy or scientific terms. They talk about terroir or malolactic fermentation or the handmade magic required to coax the most out of their fruit. But Scott Sampler is not like most vintners. He speaks of spaghetti sauce. “That was the association I had from the start,” he says. “I was thinking of cooking low and slow, like the Sunday dinners my mother used to make.” Those dinners were served in the Silver Lake and Los Feliz neighborhoods of Los Angeles, where Sampler grew up. His father was a noted graphic designer. His mother was an actress of Italian descent. Among her specialties was pasta smothered in long-simmered tomato and meat sauce. Whatever the meal, wine was always on the table, and Sampler’s father often slipped him sips, developing his son’s appreciation for the stuff. But that didn’t make a winemaker of him. After college at UC Berkeley, Sampler returned to LA and worked as a script writer and music video director. It was the emotionally taxing end of a romantic relationship in the early aughts that sent him on a new path. Traveling around on what he calls a “breakup tour,” he wound up crashing with a friend whose home sat in the mountainous folds of the Malibu. Looking at the steep-sloped property
around him, Sampler thought, “Why not plant grapes and start making wine?” Fast-forward to the present. Sampler is the driving force behind the Central Coast Group Project (CCGP), a collaborative—and iconoclastic—winery that produces startling vintages in anything but the old-fashioned way. From his first release, in 2012, he has opted for what he describes as a “neo-primitive” approach. Another way to put it is that he makes his wine the way his mother made sauce— low and slow. He lets the grapes stay in contact with the skins and stems for anywhere from a month to six months. He stirs frequently throughout the process, tasting as he goes, not unlike an Italian home cook hovering over a stove. In the early goings, Sampler’s many wine-world acquaintances were skeptical of his process; they thought it sounded like a recipe for vinegar. It turned out to be a blueprint for beautifully subtle vintages that marry wonderfully with food. No matter the wine—a boldly structured Syrah; a red Rhone varietal red; a bright everyday white—Sampler stuck to his rule-breaking methods: long maceration, little sulfur, no new oak. There was no arguing with his results. CCGP wines have been embraced by sommeliers and have found a home at acclaimed restaurants from Le Coucou and Racines in New York to Craft and Spago in LA. “There is a certain amount of risk to
making wine this way, because a lot can go wrong,” Sampler says. “But I’m working in small batches, and I’m watching things very, very closely. I’m basically living with the wines, and I know what I’m after, which is a clear, honest expression of whatever varietal I’m working with.” In his departure from convention, Sampler is unusual. But in California, he’s not alone. Elements of his rustic, low-sulfur approach are mirrored at wineries such as Piedrasassi, a Lompocbased producer of unvarnished Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc, among other varietals; and the aptly named Lo-Fi Wines in Los Alamos, where Mike Roth and Craig Winchester rely on native yeast and little to no sulfur to produce irresistibly drinkable Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. Like Sampler, Roth, a former chef, draws inspiration from his favorite kitchens, where the idea was to gather great ingredients and then not fuss with them. His wines, he says, aren’t meant to be collected, but to be enjoyed. To make them, he relies on just a few rules: They shouldn’t be overmanipulated, overripe or overpriced. “Ultimately, the standard is deliciousness,” Roth says. “Forget about the process for a minute. In the end, you want wines that are like food—so good you don’t want to stop eating. The wines should be so gulpable, you want to pour yourself another glass.”
Clockwise from top left: Lo-Fi Wines founder Mike Roth doesn’t fuss much with the ingredients of a good wine; Scott Sampler is the driving force behind the Central Coast Group Project, which produces wines that can be found in restaurants across the country; Zach Jarosz and Ian Sergy focus on Rhonestyle varietals at Archium Cellars in Santa Barbara County; enjoying a glass of red wine; Mutt Lynch Winery produces a family of reds for its Dog Series; enthusiasts participate in Blendfest, held annually in Paso Robles; Lo-Fi Wines’ Pét-Nat Rosé is made from hand-harvested and sustainably grown grapes.

Amazing Learning Happens Here!
PRIVATE PROGRESSIVE DAY SCHOOL TODDLER - GRADE 12 Voyagers’ Students in our Outdoor School, Grades 6-8: • are introduced to a curriculum that is broad and deep, and honors their innate intelligence. Our Middle Schoolers understand interdisciplinary ideas, facts, and foundations in all the liberal arts including literature, philosophy, mathematics, and social and physical sciences. • develop a sense of responsibility, which better prepares them for life. They learn through natural consequences and tangible outcomes. In this age of increasingly concrete ideas: trying, failing, trying again, and succeeding is greatly valued and inherently important. • move beyond core concepts to ideas of virtue, ethics, and civics. These knowledgeable students become highly articulate in many ﬁelds as they discuss, debate and negotiate with others, boosting both their inter and intra personal skills.
Voyagers’ High School Students:
• play an important role in developing and driving their learning, which is embedded in comprehensive lessons, extensive project-based seminar work, and independent study. • become responsible and engaged young adults who realize that adulthood is not far away and childhood is not far behind. • are conﬁdent and less inhibited by anxiety. Through mentorship, they grow into adept leaders, ready to develop new ideas and viewpoints and step up to greater demands for accountability. • graduate with higher-order thinking, which is crucial for both college and life success, where perspectives must constantly adapt to our rapidly changing world. Voyagers’ students are nimble thinkers.

Crave a Caribbean getaway that isn’t a cliché? Try beautiful Scrub Island in the B.V.I., which has welcomed visitors just since 2010. By Rita Guarna
reaking away from the typical island vacation spots isn’t easy. Too often travelers seeking an escape from the winter blues don’t get past “B” in their mental rolodexes before settling on a destination: Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda. Happily, I made my way to “S”—for Scrub Island. Located 74 miles east of Puerto Rico, this private island is one of 60 isles that make up the British Virgin Islands in the Lesser Antilles chain. Formed by volcanic action, it comprises two bulges of land— 170-acre Big Scrub and 60-acre Little Scrub—connected by an isthmus, and it’s about a mile from better-known Tortola. Sure, I’d visited those three saints in the U.S. Virgins: St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, but I’d not made my way to the British islands, and Scrub seemed to offer a bit more cachet, if only because lots of people have never heard of it. Scrub Island’s earliest inhabitants are said to have arrived in boats from South America 5,000 years ago. Christopher Columbus found it, along with the other Lesser Antilles, during his second voyage. Legend has it that sailors decided it was the perfect spot to scrub barnacles off their ships’ hulls, hence the name. (The Virgin Islands themselves reputedly draw their name from a group of virgins—some accounts say 11,000—who traveled with Saint Ursula from Britain to Germany and were martyred for refusing to marry or otherwise bond with invading Huns.) The Brits took control in 1672, but it wasn’t until 2010—when Scrub Island Resort Spa & Marina opened its doors—that the isle found its place on the tourist map. A luxury, AAA Four Diamond hotel, the resort is tucked into a rugged cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and neighboring islands. It features 26 guest rooms and 26 suites, all with bamboo ceiling fans, teak furniture, private patios or balconies plus lush 300-thread-count Fili D’oro sheets with soft down bedding and L’Occitane products. There’s also a collection of two-, three-, four- and six-bedroom hillside villas, the intimate
Ixora Spa, world-class eateries including the popular Caravela Restaurant & Bar, three private beaches and a 55-slip marina. While the Scrub Island resort is a bit tricky to get to, it’s worth it; it’s a welcome dollop of summer renewal for Northerners fleeing winter’s arctic chill. Most people fly into Tortola and catch Scrub Island’s ferry shuttle from Beef Island Airport. An alternative is to fly into St. Thomas, from which you can book a private boat or take a ferry. If your idea of a vacation is minimal activity and endless repose, this is the place for you. All the better if you’d like to aid a recently battered local economy. Hurricane Irma had its way with Scrub Island in September 2017, and its 185-mph winds left a path of destruction. The resort had to withdraw the welcome mat; it partially opened this spring after a massive renovation. This September its comeback was complete. With relaxation in mind, we chose to embrace the resort’s extensive menus of spa and wellness programs. At Ixora, the services are seemingly endless: from facials and aromatherapy to deep-tissue massage to volcanic clay body wraps. There are prenatal massages and sensuous couples’ massages as well as group yoga and customized reinvigorating treatments. If none of these sound appealing, well, you probably need a massage more than you’re willing to admit! All that kneading and rolling can be draining, though—we decided to celebrate our blissful state with some serious beach relaxation. Here one can blithely soak up the sun at North Beach (one of three beaches on the isle) in a chaise longue set atop a platform surrounded by lush foliage and unobstructed views of the crystal clear Caribbean. (Accompanied by a special someone? Make arrangements for a romantic dinner on the beach.) Don’t be misled: There are plenty of options for travelers hoping to fight the seductive lure of rum-induced inertia. Once you’re fully relaxed,
consider checking out the resort’s marina at Pavilion Beach, where there are kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling and a water trampoline for kids and the young at heart. It’s also the departure point for dive trips, snorkel tours and fishing excursions (proximity to the North Drop makes it ideal for catching tuna and blue marlin). Or visit the sailing school to brush up on nautical skills. (Two-hour lessons are available but should be booked in advance.) Popular too are guided charters that ferry guests to some of the more than 50 neighboring islands, including Norman, Virgin Gorda and Anegada. Of course, you can always just gawk at the bevy of beauties docked there. The marina has 55 deep-water slips, including five for mega-yachts up to 160 feet. For landlubbers, several natural trails lead to majestic mountain peaks with breathtaking views of the Caribbean and neighboring islands. All that exercise is sure to make you hungry. You’ll find casual fare at the One Shoe Beach Bar & Grill (after perhaps a drink in the pool from the swim-up bar at Tierra! Tierra!). And fine dining is the order of the day at the Caravela, with plenty of fish on the menu, including grouper, mahi-mahi and snapper. When you’re ready for a break from seafood, try the Jerk Chicken Breast with pineapple salsa. And if you’re a fruit lover, you’ll enjoy myriad offerings including mango, pineapple, guava, papaya, passion fruit, sugar apple and the tropical soursop. Then there’s that candelight dinner on the beach, which features spiny Caribbean lobster with a tenderloin of beef, herb-roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli. Of course, visiting an unspoiled island paradise that isn’t yet on everyone’s list may engender a certain protective attitude. Silently spinning that mental rolodex, you may wish to keep mum about Scrub Island when neighbors back home question you enviously about where you’ve been. “Away,” you may say with a mysterious smile.
Scrub Island Resort’s Ixora Spa, moved to The Passage House villa, will roll out a new menu of spa treatments. While there, guests can use one of the multiple treatment rooms, the private pool or a beachfront cabana. Other improvements to the resort include an upgraded Wi-Fi network, the expanded North Beach, a refinished infinity pool and its bar and a renovated 55-slip marina. Scrub Island Resort also provides a 24-hour fitness room and water sports at Pavilion Beach.

It’s gritty. It’s grimy. And it may be just what you need to remove impurities from your skin, hair and teeth.
ere’s the kind of “facial” a guy can face: Charcoal, known for the briquets with which you barbecue and the sticks artists use for sketching, is being boosted these days as a skin-saving health and beauty treatment. Charcoal that’s “activated”—that is, heated with oxygen added—is said to absorb up to 200 times its weight in impurities, and that has inspired a craze several Hollywood celebs have embraced. Many spas, for example, offer a treatment that incorporates crushed black charcoal in a soft powder mask. It employs a black, pudding-like substance that is applied to the face with a brush and left there for 15 or 20 minutes. It is believed to remove toxins, unclog pores, clean out blackheads, peel away dead skin cells and leave you feeling super refreshed. Scientific proof of the efficacy of this stuff? So far,
it’s more or less in the spirit of Tug McGraw of the ’73 New York Mets, who said, “You gotta believe.” But dermatologists seem to agree that it does no real harm, and media folk who’ve tried it report they did come out feeling rejuvenated. There are medical precedents of a kind, as emergency room doctors sometimes administer a charcoal paste for certain types of overdoses, relying on the porous charcoal to trap toxins and keep the body from absorbing them. And some studies have shown that activated charcoal supplements may help reduce indigestion and intestinal gas. Fans of charcoal’s “beauty” benefits praise the cleaning and exfoliation effects of charcoal masks, and of course—this being the age of specialization—there are different treatments with different emphases: a mask aimed primarily at absorbing oil,
for example, another that’s all about optimal skin texture and a third that’s a big-time acne cop. (If you have facial hair, you’ll want to exempt those zones of the face.) And the treatments require no downtime afterwards. Does the hot trend stop with the skin? You know it doesn’t. Some blogs insist that sprinkling a bit of black charcoal powder on your toothbrush before you brush can actually make teeth whiter. There are charcoal-fueled shampoos for shimmering hair, deodorants to banish B.O., and carbon peels to reduce disfiguring spots of pigmentation. (You’ll need to consult a dermatologist here.) Is charcoal worth the fuss? They say “beauty”— or rugged handsomeness—is only skin deep. But after all, it’s your skin—and hair and teeth—that people see.
