It’s my goal to bring a true culinary experience to the Drifthouse Restaurant. A quality dining experience should be flavorful, beautiful and memorable, and that is what we will strive for every day. It’s a real treat to work with my talented brother, Chef Robert Burke, and together we should be a tour de force on the Jersey shore.” –CHEF DAVID BURKE

CHEF

David Burke,

the former owner of Fromagerie, Rumson, is one of the leading pioneers in American cooking today. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Burke’s career is marked by creativity, critical acclaim and the introduction of revolutionary products and cooking techniques. He is the winner France’s coveted Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Diplome d’Honneur, the only American to ever achieve this honor, and has also won the Nippon Award for Excellence from the government of Japan, for overall skill and technique.  He has appeared on several TV shows, including Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, and has received a US patent for his pink Himalayan salt dry-age technique for steaks.

WELCOME TO THE MOST EXCITING NEW FINE-DINING EXPERIENCE ON THE JERSEY SHORE

THE REAL CRAFTSMEN, AND LOTS OF THEM Picture a team of 45 Italian tailors, each supremely dedicated to their craft, spending about 25 hours altogether to meticulously complete a single suit by hand or following 22 precise steps to construct a dress shirt. Now picture that garment on you. It’s a Kiton. The style is refined and sophisticated, but with a playful and exuberant side. Kiton—its name derived from chiton, a garment worn by the ancient Greeks—was launched in 1956 in Naples by Ciro Paone, a fifth-generation fabric merchant. The company’s motto is “the best of the best plus one.” To get the very best, stop by Garmany and get your next Kiton shirt or suit.

GARMANY GUIDE SEE BY CHLOE: THE LOOK YOU WANT

An iconic French fashion house since the 1950s, Chloe is synonymous with sophisticated and timeless women’s clothing. The brand’s smart, feminine garments and accessories are worn by celebrities like Kate Winslet and even a Duchess (another Kate). Now let’s introduce you to the line’s little sister, if you will, See by Chloe. See sprouted in 2001— driven by none other than Stella McCartney—with a youthful energy to appeal to younger women. But even with a price point geared to younger wallets, the line upholds the same graceful feel as its venerable big sis. From tailored pants and day dresses to classy shoes and shoulder bags, See offers the best looks for those with discerning tastes. At Garmany, seek out See by Chloe and strut your inner Kate Middleton.

THE POWER OF ART

SPRING/SUMMER 2018

If you believe that everything is a form of art, you’ll love Cult Gaia. Created in 2012 by Jasmin Larian, Cult Gaia designs the kind of timeless heirloom accessories that your kids will be vying for. Its goal is to create objets d’art that can transform you—your attitude and look—simply by wearing them. The bamboo Ark handbag, for instance, makes a statement while storing all your necessities. Pair it with a retro floral dress this spring for a classic look that will stand the test of time—just like fine art. Want to learn more about the brand? Visit our women’s department and let us show you the latest from Cult Gaia.

THE GARMANY GUIDE MEET YOU AT CHARLIE’S

After a day at the beach (or an afternoon of shopping at Garmany), you’ll be looking for a really good seafood restaurant where you can kick back and enjoy fine dining. We have just the place. Charlie’s of Bay Head has the best of all worlds in a restaurant: inventive yet familiar dishes (try the ahi tuna steak burger!) and impeccable service. There’s an understated elegance that’s hard to resist—which is why Charlie’s is so hot with locals and out-of-towners alike. Beyond the food, it’s a beautiful restaurant with views of Twilight Lake. But as beauty is in the eyes (and stomach) of the beholder, you’ll have to stop in and judge for yourself. 72 BRIDGE AVE., BAY HEAD; 732.295.1110; CHARLIESOFBAYHEAD.COM

BILLY REID AND THE SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN There’s an effortless, cool style that the best Southern guys have branded into their DNA. It’s understated, casual and masculine. It’s earthy and proud. That’s the look Billy Reid has captured and brings to the world. Originally from Alabama, Billy has won tons of awards for his work, but what you care about is that he can give you an award-winning look. This season, the label is focusing on soft and lightweight construction to give garments a broken-in yet luxurious feel. Billy Reid’s slow, Southern style is new at Garmany, and it looks as good on Yankees as it does on good ol’ boys.

WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD

One of the most nerve-racking things in life—shopping for a diamond—is no longer a stressful task, thanks to Goldtinker Jewelers in Red Bank. The owner, Peter Romanowski, cuts through all the confusion and double-talk. His ongoing commitment to his customers is to make buying a diamond (and any jewelry) a simple and smooth process, a philosophy that Goldtinker has preached and practiced for more than four decades. Questions about the four C’s (color, clarity, cut and carat)? Romanowski and his staff will teach you everything you need to know so you find the perfect diamond. As for your impending engagement, sorry—you’ll have to deal with that yourself.

WHO’S AT COUNT BASIE?

More than just a stage, the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank is a community cornerstone.

Here’s the upcoming schedule, but check its website for updates.

When you learn about the woman behind the shoes at Tabitha Simmons, you’ll realize why her footwear is so intriguing. She’s been a model, writer, fashion stylist—and graduated college with a degree in film and set design. Her shoe designs are inspired by her British roots and worldwide travels, and her debut collection in 2009 earned scores of awards while winning the admiration of celebs and “real people” alike. Her creations run the gamut from casual to glamorous, but the common thread is personality and detail. Ask your Garmany associate how you can walk in her shoes, literally. It’s bound to add some intrigue to your look.

MAKING WAVES IN THE JEAN POOL

GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO DETOUR GALLERY

Take a detour from your daily routine and add some color to your life. Detour Gallery, a contemporary art center in Red Bank, specializes in unique pieces meant to enhance (or start) your collection. Pay a visit (by appointment) and you’ll see art styles including realistic, abstract, outsider, folk, street, urban, pop and hyper-realistic. Detour takes a special interest in emerging artists, so you’ll always see work that’s fresh and new. You discover the most interesting things in life when you take a detour. In the case of Detour Gallery, that’s absolutely right.

Denim has turned the page from the days when the fabric was considered comfortable but too casual for the sophisticated man. Nowadays, thanks to the rise of luxury jeans makers like Jacob Cohen, these pants are the garments of choice for discerning gentlemen around the world. But what separates Jacob Cohen from the rest? For starters, Italian craftsmanship and attention to detail go into each pair, from the fit to the individual hardware. The brand’s styles run the gamut and meet the needs (and wants) of every denim lover: clean dark hues, relaxed stonewashes, slim stretch cuts, tailored silhouettes. The jeans are also unique. Jacob Cohen promises that no two pairs are ever alike—the patches and needlework are matchless, and you’ll receive a tracking code noting which tailor worked on the various stages of the jeans-making process. What else makes Jacob Cohen special? It’s an eco-friendly company: Only all-natural indigo dyes are used—never any chemicals. We know New Jersey is home to the fashion elite, so we’re excited to offer many Jacob Cohen styles to our customers. Stop by Garmany, and we’ll introduce you to this amazing brand.

YOUR LUCKY NUMBER IS 21

22

As spring brings renewal, clothing collections inspire a new approach. Try this one on: No. 21 is without a doubt a modern and feminine line, but with little details—can we say attitude?— that come from the male design book. The mix of feminine and masculine shapes and fabrics has become one of the characteristics of the brand, begun in 2010 by Alessandro Dell’Acqua, the creative director of Parisian luxury house Rochas. This season, No. 21 features garments that command attention in a crowded room—from elegant cropped cardigans and knee-length skirts to sporty elastic belts and hoodies with crystal trim. So what’s with the name and number? It’s Alessandro’s birthdate and lucky digits. Ask to see No. 21 at Garmany—it will be your lucky number too.

The warmer weather is here, so it’s time to resume our love-hate affair with golf. But every spring—like a new relationship—it starts out as love. And as with any relationship, you want to dress like a winner. Enter Garmany’s new golf “department.” To get you started on the right foot, we’re featuring top brands like Kjus, Chervò and G/Fore. You might know Kjus for its ski collections, but the brand’s golfwear is equally excellent. (And in fact, the idea of the company was created over a golf game.) Chervò also started out on the slopes, but added golf to its collections in the early ’90s. Designed and created in Italy, Chervò takes pride in golfwear that makes you look good, but also inspires you to feel confident and comfortable. The Beverly Hills-based brainchild of fashion veteran Mossimo Giannulli, G/FORE has evolved from colorful gloves to professional-level accessories and apparel. Ask your Garmany associate for advice about our finest golfwear—we promise we can make you look good on the links. For tips to improve your game … you can ask but we can’t promise anything.

ASK MR. ETIQUETTE

Johnell Garmany explains how to sail through life without giving offense. How can I wear a cool shirt untucked without looking messy? —Confused in Colts Neck Any sport shirt can be worn untucked (but never a dress shirt). It can be comfortable and sexy with the right fit and paired with the right jean, casual pant and sportcoat. The shirt must be tailored perfectly—tapered so that it doesn’t look sloppy, but not too tight where it may be pulling. Make sure the length of your sleeves is correct so you have the option of rolling them up. The most common mistake with an untucked shirt is the length. The back of the shirt should hit just the end of the butt and the front just below the zipper. It should be scalloped with a tail, not straight across. Once your sport shirt has all of these elements, make sure your jean or pant also has a nice trim fit with a narrow bottom and moderate break. To dress up this style, go with a knitted soft sportcoat with a natural shoulder. It will have a hip, cool look and you will be ready to go out on the town.

There’s no easier way to express your personality and mood than with a pair of cufflinks. This small accessory—used to replace buttons on a French cuff dress shirt—will add some flair to your outfit and speak volumes about you. But as varied as they are in design, material and color, did you know there are many different types of cufflinks too? Read this definitive guide, and all you’ll need to worry about is deciding which pair to wear today. Whale Back: These cufflinks feature a flat head, a straight post and a whale tail that flips flat against the post, allowing you to easily put it through the button hole before flipping it out again to secure. Bullet Back: This popular style features a narrow cylinder of metal that folds up to nest inside the frame of a hollow post. Once the cufflink is through the button hole, the metal bullet is flipped back out to secure. Stud, Button or Fixed Backing: These links can consist of a large head, a straight post and a smaller interior backing, or they can have identical ends. They are very durable because they have no moving parts. Chain Link: The two ends, usually identical, are connected by a short chain, resulting in a looser fastening than other styles. Ball Return: These links usually feature a curved post and a small ball shape opposite the decorative head. Silk Knot: Great for less formal occasions, this style can add a pop of color to your outfit and is less expensive than others. Locking: This innovative type is based on a hinge and secured with a dual-locking system similar to a wristwatch.

THE GARMANY GUIDE

ELEMENTS

OF MEN’S STYLE ...in which Johnell Garmany solves your sartorial dilemmas. Let’s talk suits—what’s hot for spring? The striped suit is not only making a comeback, it’s one of the season’s top garments. And while slim-cut suits are still in fashion, suit jackets with slouchier shoulders are creeping in. Boglioli and Canali (check out the Kei suit) have amazing silhouettes. Are there any collections you’re especially excited about? In luxury, Brunello Cucinelli and Loro Piana are very strong. In fact, our sportcoat assortment—including Ravazzolo, Samuelsohn and Garmany —is the best I’ve seen yet. Jacob Cohen jeans are on fire, along with golf lines such as G/Fore, Chervò and Kjus. What’s one of the most important items this season? A knit sweater, particularly a cardigan. We have outstanding pieces by Brunello Cucinelli and John Smedley that give great balance to any outfit. They look good paired with a T-shirt and sneakers or a shirt, tie and jacket. Cardigans also have nice, flattering lines, so you’ll always look good even if you don’t have a beach-ready body yet.

Your Emergency Service is known for helping patrons when they have an unexpected clothing crisis. What’s the biggest 911 you’ve encountered? A gentleman needed a bow tie for his own wedding—just as it was about to take place right across the street! Pantone named ultra violet its color of the year. How can a man best incorporate that shade into his wardrobe? Why not try to show it off with a woven shirt, a sweater or tie? Versace is known for its use of colors, and the brand makes plenty of stylish statement pieces using different shades of purple. Purple aside, what do you think is the season’s hottest color? Reds and oranges are at the forefront right now. We’re doing them in dustier, more subtle shades. We have nice orange crewneck sweaters that are very popular as well as a beautiful orange suede jacket by Cucinelli—it’s an awesome piece, probably my favorite item in the store. And red continues to be super strong in sportcoats. We have a Canali jacket that is a must-have.

Is there a past trend that’s making a comeback? A lot of people didn’t like pleated pants, but I have some news: Pleated pants are back— with a modern twist. PT01 and Cucinelli have styles that are trimmer at the hem and fuller in the thigh. Guys can pair them with sneakers or dress shoes for a dramatic style this spring. Flat front pants aren’t going away, but look out for the pleats! In your opinion, which current celebrity has the best sense of style? Colin McGregor—that dude knows how to dress. And if you disagree with him, he’ll kick your ass. What about the icons? Who was the bestdressed star in Hollywood history? It’s a tie: Cary Grant and Gary Cooper. People wanted to—and still want to—be them because they were trendsetters. Their style was so effortless. From a simple white sweater to a pinstripe suit, anything those two put on looked good. Father’s Day is coming up on June 17. What’s the perfect gift for dear old Dad? Give the guy a hug and tell him that you love him. That’s the greatest gift of all. And if you want a cherry on top, perhaps a soft cashmere sweater by Cucinelli or fine leather accessories by Alfred Dunhill. Come to Garmany, and we’ll steer you in the right direction toward the perfect gift for your Pops.

| GARMANY

Spring always brings a certain dilemma: finding that “in-between” coat. What do you recommend? The weather is always tricky this time of year, but a good leather jacket is suitable for most

conditions. There are lightweight choices that won’t overheat you but still ward off that chill you get when temps dip. Check out Isaia—the brand has a fantastic grey leather jacket that’s already a hit. Of course, you can’t talk about great jackets without mentioning Gimo’s.

WOMEN’S TRENDS

THE LOOK

FOR SPRING AND SUMMER

Styles range from super-sweet to oh-so-sexy.

REDEFINED NECKLINES

The off-the-shoulder craze has evolved into an even edgier, even sexier silhouette with asymmetrical cuts that redefine the neckline. The style wildly wraps around your neck and delicately drapes your arms. Case in point: Roberto Cavalli’s little black jumpsuit. The strappy detail curves around your chest, emphasizing all the right parts, while the extra low cut around the bust flaunts the perfect amount of skin. Jonathan Simkhai’s one-all might be a bit more casual, but it’s just as daring thanks to an exposed clavicle and sliver of stomach that draw the eye to your slimmest sections. And last but not least, slip into Rachel Zoe’s floral frock if you’re feeling foxy. The deconstructed design oozes sophistication and serious sex appeal.

SHOULDER STATEMENT

This spring, designers decorated their garments with utilitarian-inspired drawstrings in a sweetmeets-sporty style. See by Chloé’s iteration is one of our faves: Layer a sleeveless raincoat over a bohemian maxi for a safari chic look. Dangling ties swish from the waist down, emphasizing your smallest section. To give a flowery, girly get-up a bit more edge, follow La Vie Rebecca Taylor’s lead: Top the look with a baby pink windbreaker. Let the strings swing for a laid-back vibe or tie ’em up to whittle your middle. And as always, Cinq à Sept knows how to elevate a trend, turning a trench into a statement piece with sleeves adorned in parachute-type ruching.

Plaid stands out for being both timeless and trendy, so it’s no surprise the spring runways flaunted the look—and it’s not just for lovers of grunge. For this goround, girly is the game. Enter Veronica Beard, who gives her matching mini-skirt set some extra panache with the help of an effortlessly cool windowpane print. Extra points for the matching head wrap! You can’t go wrong in Marissa Webb’s modern iteration of the prairie top: Black and white tartan in a sultry off-the-shoulder cut gives this classic style a fierce facelift. Pair with leather trousers for a dose of edge. And a major shout out to Caroline Constas, who gives gingham one of the chicest updates: A flowy jumpsuit complete with a waist cinching tie.

| GARMANY

Move over, statement sleeves! For spring, shoulders are the star of the show. And the new silhouettes stand out for being both fashion forward and figure flattering. Rebecca Taylor’s voluminous sleeves, for example, combine with a form-fitting waist to whittle the littlest middle ever. Want to take your career wear to new heights? Badgley Mischka’s got you covered. Large ruched poufs take a blue button-down from business basic to playfully professional. Team with a yellow A-line skirt—très chic, madame! If, on the other hand, you’re looking for some funky flair, leave it to McQ. A sleeveless sweatshirt atop a feminine frock lets the puffy style shine.

WOMEN’S TRENDS

HOT TIPS How to capitalize on the season’s hot trends!

SUBTLE SHEER

DOUBLE DENIM The Canadian tux is a style faux pas? Mais non! The look has been spotted on runways and street-style stars alike. And with designers getting crafty with their creations, there are plenty of pickings. If you’re looking to go full-on matchy-matchy, J. Brand keeps it traditional with a faded blue set from head to toe. Or play with color and fabric, a la Mother, which tops dark indigo cut-offs with an embroidered chambray shirt. For a modern interpretation of the classic western get-up, look no further than Sea! Trim and tailored more your speed? Jump into Rag & Bone’s perfectly hemmed jeans, and complete with a patchwork denim top.

Skin is in for spring! Models strutted down the runways in barely there clothing, leaving little to the imagination yet exuding sophistication. No. 21 does the trend just right: Airy, millennial-pink fabric elevates an average pussy-bow shirt. Layered atop more sheer layers, the look is undeniably chic. We dig the matching bubblegum-colored trousers, too. Pretty in pink! Next up: Ganni, whose polka dot black dress provides just the right amount of over-exposure. Sheer sleeves and the slightest sliver of belly keep you on the right side of daring. And Ronny Kobo gives new meaning to the white button-down blouse. A deep V, reconstructed cut and cool print get even more interesting thanks to subtly-sexy sheer panels.

EMBELLISHED MULES

| GARMANY

What’s old is new again. To wit: Gucci may have debuted its now-famous furry loafers to the world two years ago, but the trend’s reappearance on the runways proves the style is here to stay. This season, you can find them adorned in embellishments so gaudy they’re glam. Take, for instance, Aquazzura’s satin blue shoes complete with a crystal spider detail—how’s that for taking a walk on the wild side? In true Robert Clergerie form, heavy-metal studs (shown) give an otherwise plain black mule some rocker edge sure to toughen up any outfit. Or you can stick to basics in Stuart Weitzman’s standard suede slip-ons. A jewel-encrusted heel gives this classic footwear a little flamboyance.

HARMONIC DETOX

MUSIC

Best cure for a fake-news hangover in this age of discontent: Spin some mind-cleansing tracks from these up-and-coming artists. By Mark Dowden

JULIEN BAKER

Proudly Southern, gay, Christian, post-punk, recovering from addiction and just months out of her teens, Julien Baker embraces what to some would seem contradictory strands of identity. Her songs are raw and intimate, giving the listener the sense, as writer Rachel Syme put it, of “eavesdropping on someone else’s prayers.” Concerned with themes of brokenness and redemption, Baker’s lyrics are fresh and honest. This latter-day pilgrim also happens to be highly listenable. The album: Turn Out the Lights Go-to song: “Appointments” Deeper dives: “Sour Breath.” Also check out “Blacktop” from Baker’s first album, Sprained Ankle.

SLOWDIVE

Their hiatus may not set a record, but close: Slowdive, an English “shoegaze” band, went 22 years between recording sessions. The reunited band’s self-titled album, released last spring, shows the benefits of aging—or maybe just the benefits of creating art outside the “The Scene That Celebrates Itself,” which the music press turned into a pressure cooker. On the new Slowdive, you’ll find meticulous songwriting and musicianship combined to produce a beautifully textured collection of tunes. The album: Slowdive Go-to song: “Sugar for the Pill” Deeper dives: “Slowmo” from the new album, “Celia’s Dream” from Just for a Day

ROSTAM As the musical leader and producer of Vampire Weekend, Rostam Batmanglij employed hand drums, harpsichord and strings to create a cheery, distinctive, genre-blurring sound. As the solo act Rostam (preferring to be mononymous), he brings the same signature techniques to his debut album, Half-Light. Rostam’s vocal style—somewhat hushed and often near-mumbling—is decidedly un-Vampire, but it’s pleasing and well-suited to his lyrics, which paint soft images of past memories. The album: Half-Light Go-to song: “Bike Song” Deeper dives: The short, haunting “I Will See You Again.” Also sample “In a Blackout” from Rostam’s collaborative album with Hamilton Leithauser.

MOSES SUMNEY

The title Aromanticism, or the inability to experience romantic love, telegraphs this album’s bleak lyrical point of view. But singersongwriter Moses Sumney’s mood isn’t one of despair. In the solitary life, he seems to find both comfort and challenge. And so he wraps his blues in a package that sounds downright romantic, compact of dreamy harmonies, warm strings and Sumney’s own emotive, falsetto crooning. The songs may pack a series of existential bummers, but they also have the power of sonic seduction. The album: Aromanticism Go-to song: “Self-Help Tape” Deeper dives: “Plastic” and “San Fran,” both from the EP Mid-City Island

There are two kinds of playlists—the kind that makes an unobtrusive background soundtrack (meh) and the kind that keeps you on your toes, reaching to adjust the volume with each new song. This is the latter kind, with recordings that span seven decades and cover genres from R&B to trip-hop. “Jenny of the Roses” by Hiss Golden Messenger “Little Sally Walker” by The Rivingtons “Let Me Go” by Cake “Roadless” by Frightened Rabbit “Witness” by Benjamin Booker “Foggy Day” by Beegie Adair

Encore, Encore Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy are making actress Zoe Saldana the queen of sequels. But she’s also a queen of style. By Lance Debler

T

of Captain Celaeno, a humanoid parrot, in My Little Pony: the Movie. Or maybe it was her newfound real-life role as a mother: After marrying Italian artist Marco Perego in 2015, she swiftly had three sons: twins Bowie and Cy, and Zen (born just last year). Fortunately, Saldana’s burst of domesticity hasn’t consigned her to an unvarying uniform of mom jeans: Her style is as on point—and daring—as ever. She sported a strapless Dolce & Gabbana black gown covered in peacock feathers for the 2016 Met Gala; that same year, she made eyes (and flashbulbs) pop at the Mexico City premiere of Star Trek Beyond with a Rodarte black lace frock that featured—besides a black leather belt, ruffled finishes and beaded embroidery—more than a little skin. As for her future on the red carpet? Expect this true original to continue pushing boundaries—after all, she’s famously been quoted saying that “fashion is art; it’s a story.” So we’re eagerly awaiting not just more of Gamora and the blue-faced Neytiri, but also Zoe Saldana’s own next chapter.

GAR.ss18.muse.indd 51

She’s known for her red-carpet style, but even her onscreen ensembles are on point: For the 2014 miniseries Rosemarie’s Baby, Zoe Saldana donned a stunning silk number in crimson.

SPRING/SUMMER 2018

alk about job security. After starring as Neytiri in 2009’s Avatar—the highest-grossing film of all time—Zoe Saldana is set for not one but two sequels to the James Cameron-directed epic (a fourth film is also planned). Meanwhile, her role as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy has also ensured a pair of future follow-ups and, lest we forget, she’s already played Lieutenant Nyota Uhura in two of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek films. (Hey, buddy—third time’s a charm.) Not that this talented actress-dancer needs to rely on sci-fi flicks for a paycheck. In between blockbusters (while becoming a tried-and-true style icon—more on that later), the New Jersey-born beauty has also appeared in smaller films such as Nina, the story of legendary singer and activist Nina Simone. The biopic was unauthorized—a point made excruciatingly clear when Simone’s family criticized the casting of Saldana, suggesting she was too light-skinned to portray the jazz musician accurately. The controversy perhaps convinced her to try a lighter role or two: A year later, she voiced the part

THE LEADING MAN

Ladies’ Man Ryan Reynolds may have finally settled down, but he’s still continuing a love affair with three women: his (very famous) spouse and their two daughters. By Lance Debler

W

Wilson, who acquires a superhuman healing factor that enables him to survive unfortunate events like decapitation—in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The role brought him a new level of fame: People magazine named him one of its Sexiest Men Alive twice before bestowing the top honor upon him in 2010, and fashion bloggers began obsessing over his dressed-upyet-laid-back sense of style. For the Origins premiere, he ditched the jacket of his black three-piece suit and cut a breezy figure, the sleeves rolled up on his dress shirt. It’s a relaxed look that has stayed on constant display: In 2016, when that X-Men role finally turned into what’s sure to be his franchise goldmine with the release of the official Deadpool film, he showed up in a camel-colored suit, no belt and enough “dapper” to drench the red carpet. By then, of course, he’d met and married Lively and spawned the aforementioned two daughters, James, now 4, and Ines, 2. So will Reynolds begin embracing his dad status and lay back even more? Could be. While promoting Deadpool in London, he hit the press trail with mostly grey hair, a matching salt-and-pepper beard and a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses. Of course, no one seemed to mind his mature new look: Courtesy of style watchers, Twitter users and just about everyone else on Earth, Ryan Reynolds was officially proclaimed Hollywood’s newest silver fox.

Opposite page, clockwise from left: Ryan Reynolds strikes a dapper pose in a three-piece suit at a Hugo Boss event, gets laidback in leather for a photoshoot, hits the red carpet in a V-neck sweater and blazer combo at the 2009 premiere of The Proposal and gets totally casual while posing on a Harley-Davidson.

SPRING/SUMMER 2018

ith a wife and two young daughters at home, you might assume that Ryan Reynolds is ready to build an impassable man cave and retreat to it frequently. But you’d be wrong. “I’m just fine being surrounded by estrogen,” the 41-year-old (and better half of actress/lifestyle maven Blake Lively) once told an interviewer. “I grew up in a house full of testosterone. I’m the youngest of four boys, and my dad was a cop—and that’s intense. For whatever reason, I always got along great with girls.” No kidding. Before he settled into domestic bliss with Lively—they exchanged vows at a South Carolina plantation in 2012—he romanced several wellknown women. One of his most serious (but often forgotten-by-the-masses) relationships: a three-year union with angst-ridden rocker Alanis Morissette, to whom he was even engaged. Those looking for insight on the split need look only as far as Morissette’s 2008 Flavors of Entanglement album; she’s said it was inspired by the pain of the breakup, with the song “Torch” specifically based on Reynolds. The Canadian-born actor, meanwhile, rebounded quickly: He soon began dating Hollywood goddess Scarlett Johansson (the two were wed by 2008, with a divorce following three years later). Professionally, his career soared. In 2009, he first appeared as Deadpool—aka mild-mannered Wade

A PRACTICAL PERFORMER

With groundbreaking tech and 680 ponies under the hood, Ferrari’s GTC4Lusso is in a class of its own. And there’s seating for the entire family! Don’t let the spacious trunk and wagon-like silhouette fool you, this is every bit a Ferrari as Magnum P.I.’s 308 GTS—and it might be better! The legendary Italian luxury sports car maker has revamped its old FF model and renamed it the GTC4Lusso (one word, Ferrari says). Casual drivers will love the trunk space and seating for four. But enthusiasts will appreciate the power, falling for the 680-horsepower V12 engine and all-wheel drive/four-wheel steering combo—a first in the gran turismo class. Undoubtedly, this is a Ferrari!

| GARMANY

Starting Price:

$298,900

A front-mounted 6.2liter V12 engine cranks out 680 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. (That’s a big roar!) All that muscle catapults the Lusso from 0–62 mph in 3.4 seconds; it has a reported top speed of 207 mph. Catch your breath before you read on.

The big coupe obeys every steering command thanks to 20-inch front and rear wheels. The 117.7-inch wheel base, wide like other sports coupes, provides extra stability.

A sports coupe for the snow? Not only does the Lusso feature a rugged AWD system, but its four-wheel steering (when needed, the front and rear wheels will steer into a turn) gives it top-notch handling and control.

From sculpted sides and chiseled crease lines to aggressive angles, styling on the Lusso—which translates to “luxury”— earns higher marks than its predecessor, the Ferrari FF.

78

GAR.ss18.auto.indd 78

3/12/18 3:54 PM


A 10.3-inch touchscreen is mission control of the infotainment system. Together with the knob-and-button interface, the audio, phone and ventilation systems are intuitive and easy to navigate.

Like Formula 1 racers, Lusso drivers can control the car without taking their hands off the wheel. Controls for ignition, headlights, turn signals and windshield wipers are mounted on the front of the steering wheel. Rotary switches for the audio system are built into the back of the wheel spokes.

The Lusso’s two rear seats aren’t just for looks—two people can fit snuggly in the back. It’s unlikely that a pro basketball player can squeeze in (this is a sports coupe, after all) but this car has 16 millimeters more legroom than its predecessor.

The company’s trademark twin rear lights broaden the horizontal lines of the rear profile. Tailpipes remind those who follow behind the car of its raw power.

|

With an AWD drivetrain and ground clearance higher than any other sports car, driving in everyday conditions (including nasty potholes) is a breeze.

Unlike many luxury sports coupes, the Lusso provides ample trunk space. Pop the hatchback and stow your groceries, luggage or even a couple of golf bags. Going skiing? Fold down the 50/50 split rear seats to fit all your gear.

SPRING/SUMMER 2018

Ferrari’s prancing horse emblem is mounted front and center on the large single grille, which provides all the necessary air intake to cool the mighty V12 beneath the hood.

Double pane glass is used throughout the vehicle, including an optional panoramic moonroof, giving riders a sweeping view of the surroundings. Though noise is an expected quality of Ferraris, the glass, coupled with an improved exhaust system and extra soundmuffling fiberglass, keeps the cabin quiet.

LIMITLESS OPTIONS The client can select any detail—subdued or extravagant, simple or complex— that he desires. (Color-accented buttonholes, anyone?)

HAND CUT AND SEWN A tailor uses measurements to prepare fabrics for suit assembly.

FABRICS Bespoke shops have a library of fabrics, usually scores of them from a selection of more than 10 mills.

STITCH TENSION

LIST OF OPTIONS Clients pick from a checklist of choices— for instance, number of jacket buttons, pocket style, vent options, pant pleats and cuffs.

MACHINE CUT AND SEWN Fabric is prepared in a factory, though some work is done by hand.

FABRICS Most shops offer a curated selection of fabrics from one to two mills. Using fewer mills guarantees price point and quality.

MEASUREMENTS There are fewer measurements taken than bespoke. Sales associates or made-to-measure specialists obtain numbers, then send them to a factory.

PATTERN These are based on standard suit sizes. The tailor or house cutter will modify standard patterns based on body shapes, such as shoulder width and jacket length.

PATTERN A new pattern is created for each gent. Because standard or base patterns are not used, the design is truly based on the customer’s body.

MEASUREMENTS The tailor will take as many measurements as needed for a perfect fit. Often numbers are recorded at the client’s home or office.

f spring fever has you battling a case of workout boredom—or waging war on waistline expansion—battle ropes could be your answer. The practice of waving, thrashing and slamming thick ropes provides a fast, high-intensity workout with a big payoff. “Battle ropes are a great alternative for upper body training,” says Rob Sulaver, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and the founder of Bandana Training in New York City. “That’s why boxers and martial arts experts love them.” Football players are also drawn to the workout, says Franklin Antoian, founder of the top-ranked online personal training website iBodyFit. “It builds the skills they need—quickness, agility, power, speed and strength—in short bursts,” he says. Amateur athletes are drawn to battle ropes for the hard-core aspect they add to a workout. The concept was developed by John Brookfield, a renowned fitness expert who holds a number of world strength records (including one for bending 520 penny nails in about 90 minutes). Despite this fearsome lineage, battle ropes are an accessible workout. “It’s like learning to jump rope or ride a bicycle,” Antoian says. “It looks really challenging, and in the beginning it is—but you quickly get the hang of it. It’s great for both men and women, and you can do it no matter what fitness level you’re at.” The ropes are generally 30, 40 or 50 feet long and from 1.5 to 2 inches wide. They weigh between 25 and 50 pounds and can be made of polyester, rubber or even plain old hemp. The most common move—and the one you can find on numerous YouTube videos—is The Wave, in which two equal lengths of rope, secured by an “anchor” (such as a heavy piece of equipment), are made to undulate in ocean-like swells. This lends a play-like, graceful aspect to a super-challenging workout. The demands on muscles, as well as the intense cardio exertion, can make a 20-second interval feel endless. Studies have shown that a battle ropes workout burns as many as 112 calories in 10 minutes. There are technique variations within the Wave category— Tsunami, SideWinder and Rainbows, to name a few. But rope exercises can also consist of pulling, slamming or twisting, often while the user simultaneously does lunges, squats or even jumping jacks. “Battle ropes movements aren’t limited to a single plane of motion—they’re three-dimensional, and you can easily flow from one exercise to the other,” says Sulaver. “That lends itself to a lot of variety, and athletes find that interesting and fun.” Battle ropes newbies should combine 20- to 25-second work intervals with 20-second rest intervals, according to the American Council on Exercise; more experienced or highly conditioned individuals can use 30- or 35-second work intervals and 15-second rest intervals. In either case, a typical battle ropes workout should last no more than 15 to 20 minutes. While battle ropes are becoming increasingly available at gyms—many locations in national chains like Crunch and Equinox offer them—they also work well at home. “When I design a home gym for a client, battle ropes are always on the list because there are so many exercises you can do with them,“ Sulaver says. “They’re relatively inexpensive, and when you’re done you can put them away and they don’t take up a lot of space.” Battle ropes are also a good option for workouts in the backyard, where they can be anchored by a small tree or sturdy deck support, Antoian reports. “People who want a badass feel to their workouts tend to go for battle ropes,” Sulaver says. “Plus, the exercises look really cool. They give you great pictures to post on Instagram.”

THE SPORTING LIFE

thrice as nice

Streamsong’s two quirky courses have been smashing the clichés about Florida golf. Now there are three. By Josh Sens

I

| GARMANY

n a lush swath of central Florida, at a triangle point between Tampa and Orlando, the flat terrain begins to wrinkle like a rumpled bedsheet. The air is warm, but a breeze is blowing as white-sand dunes rise into view. In the near distance, down a sleepy turnoff south of the city of Lakeland, a modern wood-stone-and-glass clubhouse stands lonely sentinel, its windows glinting in the daylight. Behind it stretch green fingerlings of fairway, bent and knuckled, fringed by knobby mounds and native grasses. Welcome to Streamsong, a slice of Scotland in the Sunshine State. From the day it opened in 2014, this upscale resort has upended preconceptions about Florida golf. While the stereotype features geezers riding golf carts on cookie-cutter courses carved through gated subdivisions, Streamsong offers something wild and otherworldly. Its location alone sets it apart—on a former phosphate mine, far removed from any residential sprawl. Here, there are no houses. But the land itself has plenty of life, marked by shaggy hillocks and sandy gouges, with elevation changes that are hard to come by elsewhere in the state. At its inauguration, Streamsong cut the ribbon on two courses, the Blue and the Red, designed, respectively, by Tom Doak and the duo of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. If you’re looking to name-drop in golf architecture circles, the names don’t

get much bigger than those three. True to their reputation as rugged minimalists, Doak and Coore/Crenshaw crafted layouts that required little earth-moving. On both the Red and Blue, the holes buck and roll with the dips and rises that phosphate mining left behind, their imprint lying gently on the land. Before you could yell “Fore!” Streamsong gained acclaim as a pleasure ground for purists, celebrated for its throwback style of golf. Unlike many Florida layouts, which require blunt-edged aerial assaults, the Red and Blue encourage creative play. You can launch high shots. But you can also bound your ball along the firm, wide fairways, making use of the quirky humps and hollows. Though the two tracks are a long way from identical—the Blue has larger greens; the Red has tighter tee shots, among other distinctions— both are shaped by a similar aesthetic. They are reminiscent of British links, except that they are nowhere near the sea. Although walking isn’t mandatory, it’s highly recommended, just as it is throughout the British Isles, where the philosophy holds that a caddie beats a golf cart any day. “As public-access, two-course complexes go, there’s none better in the United States,” raved Joe Passov, Golf magazine’s chief architecture critic, after seeing the property for the first time. That assessment was correct but it needs

updating: Today there aren’t two courses at Streamsong, but three. Last fall, the already sprawling resort expanded further with the opening of Streamsong Black. Designed by Gil Hanse, another noted architect, whose heralded course credits include Castle Stuart in Scotland and the 2016 Olympic Course in Rio de Janeiro, the Black is a kindred spirit of the Red and Blue—with magnified features. Located a mile southeast of its two siblings, it spreads across a larger footprint. It has broad-shouldered fairways, cavernous sand traps and dunes that loom like scale-model Himalayas. It’s a course that calls for power but also precision, as evidenced by the holes such as the short par-four 14th, with a green that’s reachable from the tee—if you can laser your drive along the proper line. As a complement to its time-capsule golf, Streamsong rolls out refined accommodations, its lodge honeycombed with 216 custom-designed guest rooms and suites. There are four casual and fine dining restaurants. There’s a full-service spa. There’s a convention center’s worth of conference rooms and meeting space. Inside, you’re coddled by contemporary comforts, just as you would be in a luxury hotel in Tampa or Orlando. Outside, though, the mood is different. Step onto the first tee and click your spikes. You get a funny feeling you’re not in Florida anymore.

Opposite page, clockwise from top: The Blue course features multiple elevation changes, fairways navigating wild grasses and deep-water ponds; the Red course boasts decadesold sand dunes, lakes and natural bunkers; the resort’s Lodge has a quiet loft/lounge area, along with a grotto-style, full-service spa and a fitness center; the Black course is known for its sand ridges akin to the Sand Belt Region of Melbourne, Australia; the Red course was designed by the team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw; guestrooms have floorto-ceiling glass with custom louvers, with many offering stunning water views.

PURSUITS

Do The Dunes! Can-Am’s Maverick X3 Turbo makes it look easy as it gobbles terrain— sandy, rocky, muddy or just plain rough. By Timothy Kelley

T

alk about your misleading monikers. Maverick is a gambler’s name, but here’s a sure thing. With the Maverick X3, Can-Am—the allterrain vehicle branch of Quebec-based Bombardier Recreational Products—has written a new chapter in side-by-side history. It’s a blissful union of traction and maneuverability. And for 2018, it’s available at $20,000. Hey, if “smooth” were all you cared about, you wouldn’t be out there in the wild. You’d be oozing down the avenue in a luxury limo with tinted glass. But you want the whole rugged world. Thus, a vehicle craftily constructed to take rocks, ridges, mud flats, dunes and dirt trails in stride very smoothly indeed. Just imagine where you’ll go next. This bodacious super-buggy, which goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, boasts a 120-horsepower, turbocharged, electronic fuel-injected 900-cc Rotax ACE (Advanced Combustion Efficiency) three-cyl-

inder, liquid-cooled engine. There’s an ultralight, rigid chassis of tubular steel that the manufacturers say offers “53 percent better torsional stiffness” while “20 percent lighter than its closest competitor.” The transmission is shiftless (but not lazy!), and there are 14 inches of ground clearance and a four-link TTX suspension. Count on 28-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 six-ply tires on 14-inch aluminum wheels. And the shocks are by Fox—2.5 Podium HPG Piggyback with position-sensitive internal bypass technology that prevents harsh bottoming. Translation for all that? Exceptional performance! You’ll sit low to the ground in four-way adjustable seats in the heart of the vehicle, switching from two- to four-wheel drive while under way. This Maverick X3 is a two-seater, so take along a witness you’d like to impress. (Just remember not to look too goggleeyed yourself.) Heck, you may give up roads entirely. Was 20 grand ever so grand?

| GARMANY

Your date with Lady Luck begins the moment you take the Maverick X3 Turbo out to try some tough turf. It enjoys maximum ground-hugging stability with a 64-inch width, and its turbocharged engine is tuned for torque.

FILIPINO IS THE NEW THAI Get ready: The exotic flavor of the Philippines is coming to a restaurant near you. By Darius Amos

W

hile cuisines from mainland countries like China, India, Korea and Thailand have made their marks on Western cultures, Filipino food always seemed to lag behind. But thanks to internationally renowned chefs-turned-TV-stars like Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern, we’ve caught a glimpse of the good and tasty plates from the Philippines. Our thoughts now? Lemme try some of that! To prepare you for the influx of Filipino restaurants in a city near you, we provide the 411 on four Filipino staples (pictured on opposite page) that you’ll likely find on any menu. Enjoy!

Biko

Kinilaw

Lumpia

The Philippines’ national noodle dish, pancit (PAHN-sit or PUN-sit) resembles Chinese lo mein in appearance, but it awakens different tastebuds when eaten. And depending on the home or restaurant, you’ll find different versions. The most common, pancit canton, combines an Asian egg noodle with a variety of chopped vegetables, meat (chicken, Chinese sausage and fish cake are popular options), soy sauce and a tangy splash or two of calamansi. In pancit bihon, chefs use a translucent rice noodle as the base for the mix of veggies and meats, and they often enhance it with a few sprinkles of patis (a savory sauce made of fermented fish and salt). A third kind, pancit palabok, features a thick rice noodle topped with a golden shrimp sauce, hard-boiled egg, chicharrón (crushed pork rinds) and other garnishes. Mastery of chopsticks not required!

Many Filipinos eat rice with breakfast, lunch and dinner—and a good number will even have it for dessert! Biko is a glutinous rice (short-grain, sticky rice) cake that’s mixed and topped with a delectable syrup consisting of coconut milk and brown sugar. And contrary to the name of its main ingredient, biko does not contain gluten, so those with Celiac can enjoy! Because it’s best served warm—though still appealing served at room temperature—biko is considered a comfort food and might feel as good as an affectionate hug from a loved one.

When translated to English, kinilaw literally means “eaten raw.” This raw seafood delicacy is closely related to ceviche or poke—it’s even eaten as a snack or appetizer—but there’s one major difference. In kinilaw, the acid in vinegar is used to “cook” the seafood, which is usually octopus, tuna, swordfish or mackerel mixed with calamansi juice, salt, ginger, chili peppers and other spices. Ceviche dishes, on the other hand, rely on lime juice. Tip: Check the description before ordering. Filipino cuisine includes a similarly named dish called “kilawin.” Some restaurants will use the names interchangeably for the raw seafood plate, but traditional kilawin features cooked goat, pork or beef instead of seafood.

Typically consumed as an appetizer, these savory spring rolls are just as palate-pleasing served hot as they are cold. And like pancit, there are several varieties that will satisfy vegetarians and carnivores alike. The most popular is deep-fried lumpia, a rice wrapper filled with meticulously chopped vegetables like bean sprouts, carrots, string beans and, if you choose, morsels of meat (chicken, shrimp, pork). The non-fried fresh lumpia can include those ingredients plus lettuce, coconut hearts and crushed peanuts along with a dipping sauce made of crushed peanuts, stock and garlic. For the true snacker, bite-size lumpia Shanghai is stuffed with ground pork or beef, minced onion and zesty Asian spices, fried and then enjoyed with either a spicy dip or sweet banana sauce.

EASTERN PROMISE In honor of World Whisky Day on May 19, we’re serving up a half-dozen top Japanese whiskies. Kanpai (“cheers”) from the Land of the Rising Sun! By Nancy Mattia

B

etter watch out, Macallan. Japanese whisky, with its distinctly silky texture and smooth taste, is so popular right now that even producers in Scotland are attempting to emulate it with Scotch aged in casks made from Japan’s Mizunara oak. Well, what took them so long? Whisky (that’s the preferred spelling in the Land of the Rising Sun) is nothing new to Japan—the Suntory company built the country’s first whisky distillery in Yamazaki, on the outskirts of Kyoto, back in 1923, and it’s been joined by other well-respected producers since then. Check out our guide to six must-try varieties of this sophisticated sip. If you like what you taste, feel free to explore more— it’s hard to find a so-so pour.

SPIRITS

THE YAMAZAKI SINGLE MALT 12-YEAR-OLD

| GARMANY

This is the stuff whisky dreams are made of. The award-winning spirit—produced by the Yamazaki Distillery, the first to be built in Japan—is made from malted barley and distilled in casks made of Japanese, American and Spanish oak, which contribute to its rich flavor. It’s aged for 12 years, and the wait is worth it. You’ll find the aroma is pleasing, even intoxicating: floral with a hint of fruit, including honeydew, plus spice and hay. When you sample it for the first time, close your eyes. Can you detect notes of toffee, stone fruits like plums and even buttered toast? The finish to each sip is intense and lasting.

HIBIKI SUNTORY JAPANESE HARMONY

With a name like “Harmony,” it should come as no surprise that this whisky is blended. (The Japanese word for “harmony” is—you guessed it—“hibiki.”) Its pedigree comes from malt and grain whiskies from three different distilleries. As its producer, Suntory, notes, it’s “blessed with the riches of Japanese nature and craftsmanship.” And it really does all work together to produce a mild, well-balanced whisky with an abundance of flavor. Take a whiff and you’ll detect rose, lychee and rosemary, along with woodsy notes of pine and sandalwood. When you take a sip, hold it for a moment—you’ll likely taste honey, cinnamon, candied orange peel and white chocolate. The finish is subtle yet tends to linger and delivers a hint of Mizunara (oak).

NIKKA TAKETSURU 12 YEAR OLD

His family owned a sake brewery but Masataka Taketsuru was more interested in whisky so, in 1918, he took off for Scotland’s University of Glasgow and became the first person of Japanese heritage to study whisky-making. No wonder he’s called “the father of Japanese whisky.” He turned his passion into profit and eventually founded the Nikka company, which launched its first whisky in 1940. Named after its pioneering head, this full-bodied spirit is distilled in sherry casks, bourbon barrels and American oak. It gets high marks for its mild, blended malt flavor, aromatic fruitiness (plums, cherries, papaya, lemon) and well-balanced taste. A key feature of a worthy whisky is how it tastes on your palate, and the Taketsuru delivers coffee, almonds and a touch of spicy clove. The finish is lush or, as it’s been called by admirers, “fruit salad in a glass.”

124

GAR.ss18.spirits.indd 124

3/12/18 3:57 PM


AKASHI WHITE OAK

SUNTORY WHISKY TOKI

Toki means “time” in Japanese, and that concept inspired the creation of a whisky that represents how tradition meets innovation. You’ll find that it takes no time at all to appreciate how this light-bodied blended whisky tastes. Made from selected malt and grain whiskies from three different Suntory distilleries, this clear gold spirit offers a nose treat of green apples, honey and basil with palate-pleasing flavors of green grapes, grapefruit, peppermint and thyme. The refreshing citrus notes lead to a sweet and spicy finish that teases vanilla oak, ginger and white pepper. The affordable price of this smooth, versatile whisky also goes down easy. Once you’re hooked on enjoying it as a highball, neat or on the rocks, try it as a hot toddy.

KIKORI WHISKEY

Fun fact about Kikori Whiskey: It’s made from 100 percent rice that’s grown in nutrient-rich soil in a rice paddy along a river in a volcanic area of Kumamoto in southern Japan. And get this: The rice has been cultivated for more than 2,000 years. The rice and pristine groundwater flowing over the rocks contribute to its pleasing flavor and aroma. Smooth and suave—and spelled with an “ey” because it’s aimed at connoisseurs in the United States, where “whiskey” is the preferred spelling—Kikori is aged for more than three years in oak barrels and sherry casks, which your nose knows is a good thing. You can also taste flavorful notes of cinnamon, apples, melon and almonds. The all-important finish? Clean and bright.

SPRING/SUMMER 2018

If you want a whisky you can drink every day and still pay the mortgage, this one’s for you. A light blend of Japanese and foreign-produced malt and grain whisky, this affordable Eastmeets-West spirit offers an especially fruity nose with apricots, dried fruit and a hint of honey. It’s smooth with an inviting aroma of smoke and ash. Since it’s not full-bodied like other Japanese whiskies, it’s the bottle to pull off the bar when making a highball or other cocktails. The distillery was founded more than 100 years ago, but it was only in 1984 that the White Oak company built a new distillery dedicated to whisky—and that’s how White Oak blended whisky was born.

Wines by the Water

The weather’s warmer, and with these wise choices the Mediterranean is but a sip away. By Josh Sens

W

ith spring in the air and summer basking just around the corner, our thoughts turn to wines that are suited to the season. We find them in the vineyard-latticed hills of Sicily and Portugal, and along the sun-splashed shores of the Canary Islands, Corsica, Santorini and Sardinia. Here, across a generous swath of the Mediterranean, delicious grape varietals abound, giving rise to light, bright wines of wonderful complexity—qualities that make them ideal for warm-weather drinking.

CANARY ISLANDS

| GARMANY

Formed over the course of several million years, this volcanic archipelago—a property of Spain but more geographically proximate to Morocco—has ancient wine-making traditions. But only recently have its vintages gained recognition around the West. When Lindgren thinks of summer on these islands, she thinks of malvasia, a varietal with roots centuries deep.

128

GAR.ss18.grape.indd 128

EVERYDAY s Bodegas los Bermejos, Malvasia Seco Lanzarote, 2016—$19 SPLURGE Ignios Origenes Baboso Negro, Ycoden-DauteIsora, 2012—$40

That’s the common theme. But every region offers something slightly different. To help us navigate the territory, we’ve looked to Shelley Lindgren, co-owner and wine director of the A16 restaurants in San Francisco and Oakland. One of this country’s leading experts on southern Mediterranean wines, Lindgren was keen to lead us on a tasting tour, replete with personal recommendations for must-try wines at each of our six stops.

CORSICA

SANTORINI

Located 40 miles west of Italy and 80 miles southwest of France, this island is a cultural hybrid: It’s a French territory (and Napoleon’s birthplace), but many of its winemaking traditions are Italian. The three dominant varietals are Nielluccio, Sciacarello and Vermentino. “As someone with an affinity for Italian wines, I find Corsica to be a magical place,” Lindgren says. “There’s a minerally and citrus quality to the wines that I just love.”

EVERYDAY s Domaine, U. Stiliccionu, Vermentino, Ajaccio, 2016—$28 SPLURGE Domaine Comte Abbatucci, “Général de la Révolution,” Vin de France Blanc 2015—$53

On this Greek island in the southern Aegean Sea, the volcanic ash-rich soils are immune to the almost microscopic aphidlike insects known as phylloxera, so many of the vines are centuries old. Among the varietals that flourish is assyrtiko, a grape whose mineral qualities make it great for blending. Then again, Lindgren says, it’s also delicious on its own.

EVERYDAY s Gaia, Thalassitis Assyrtiko, 2016—$26 SPLURGE Hatzidakis, Assyrtiko de Louros, Vignes Centenaires, 2014—$89

3/12/18 3:56 PM


MINHO

SICILY

In the chill of winter, nothing beats a glass of port around a roaring fire. But when the days are long and sunny, Lindgren leans toward the crisp whites of vinho verde, from the mountainous province of Minho in northern Portugal.

EVERYDAY s Adega de Moncao, Vinho Verde, DOC, 2016—$23 SPLURGE Soalheiro Alvarinho “Primeiras Vinhas” Vinho Verde, 2016—$36

GAR.ss18.grape.indd 129

SARDINIA

You could spend a lifetime exploring the wines of Sicily and still feel you’ve only scratched the surface. Lindgren suggests starting along the volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna, where a host of younger plantings at high elevation provide the fruit for a range of subtle reds and whites.

The valley’s wines are world-class—and so, as savvy travelers are discovering, is its newest boutique hotel, the Archer. By Rita Guarna

id you ever think doing good could be as easy as drinking a glass of wine? The wildfires that spread through California’s Napa Valley this past fall destroying towns in several counties are now the stuff of legend: They forced some 100,000 people to evacuate their homes and burned nearly 250,000 acres; 40-plus people lost their lives, and more than 6,000 buildings were destroyed. While many of the area’s vineyards survived unscathed, nearly two dozen were damaged or destroyed. The region’s ability to bounce back depends in part on tourists, and the message is clear: Napa Valley is open for business and not shy about letting folks know it’s counting on the roughly 4 million thirsty visitors who travel there each year. From Highway 29, the main artery that runs through the valley’s heart, the world seems to consist of just one thing: row upon perfectly symmetrical row of waist-high grapevines. Indeed, there’s hardly a red or white wine that hasn’t been cultivated in Napa since grapes were first grown here in 1838. Yet it’s the Cabernet Sauvignon (known as “the king of reds”) that lures most imbibers, and visitors can sample countless varietals at the roughly 400 wineries. One of the region’s great moments came in 1976, when wines from Napa beat their French counterparts in a blind, side-by-side tasting, stunning the world. The competition came to be known as the Judgment of Paris, and it forever changed wine lovers’ perceptions of Napa, solidifying its reputation as a producer of some of the world’s best wines. First, get oriented by hopping aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train. Yes, it’s touristy, but this threehour ride gives you glimpses of town centers and wineries in Napa, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford and St. Helena through oversized windows. And the 140-seat train, which departs from downtown Napa, makes stops at various wineries. Or take off for a bird’s-eye tour of the area: A Balloons Above the Valley flight promises sunrise views with coffee and pastries followed by a champagne brunch. There are many wonderful places to stay, but ku-

dos to the Archer Hotel, a luxury boutique hostelry located in Napa’s downtown on First Street, for opening in November so soon after the devastation in the area. It’s cool enough to take your mind off fires. If hotels run a gamut from palaces to cozy hideaways, put this brand-new, five-story gem somewhere between, in happy medium territory. Savor the impeccable modern design along with an experience that is curated to a fare-the-well. There are 183 luxurious rooms including 40 balcony-blessed suites, some with cozy private gas fireplaces. Rooms feature beds outfitted with down duvets and down pillows (hypoallergenic ones available) and in-room laptop-size safes. There are Frette bathrobes, Ursa Major face wipes and Malin+Goetz bath amenities. (That means eucalyptus deodorant, bar soaps of lime, rum and peppermint, and a longhandled bath brush that reaches your everywhere.) You’ll enjoy complimentary Nespresso, Wi-Fi of course, a work desk and (when in Rome, you know) a wine refrigerator with temperature control. Opening very soon is a rooftop spa created by the famed Francis & Alexander design team, which promises to pamper you with amenities galore and a panoramic countryside view of this oenophile’s paradise. That brings us to Charlie Palmer Steak, an eatery captained by executive chef Jeffery (yes, it’s spelled that way) Russell, a Culinary Institute of America grad who once worked at Manhattan’s Michelinstarred Aureole and more recently delighted discerning diners in D.C. and Denver. Locally sourced ingredients and artisanal American beef claim the spotlight here, though of course the menu’s Wagyu options take their inspiration from the Far East. Try the Bone-On Tomahawk for Two or the 18-ounce ribeye. (You’ve got non-beef alternatives, too, such as the Snake River Farms Pork Chop or the Pan-Roasted Black Cod. For a side, try the Charred Broccolini with lemons and almonds.) Don’t dally overtime at the Archer, however— there’s too much exploring to do. Downtown Napa, on the banks of the Napa River, is filled with shops,

bars, restaurants and—yes, wine, at several wine bars. Start by taking a stroll and admiring the art courtesy of the Arts Council Napa Valley; every year, it curates a new set of sculptures from top artists as part of its Napa ARTwalk program. Also downtown is the historic Napa Valley Opera House, a nonprofit performing arts center that provides entertainment in an intimate setting. Another landmark, but of a far different variety, is the Oxbow Public Market. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., it sells everything from fresh fish and produce to kitchen gadgets and ceramic gift items. Besides getting your fill of good eats, you can listen to live music, watch a cooking demo and—yes again, partake of wine tastings. Fact is, there’s beer at the market, too, but you didn’t come here for beer. For the winery experience you did come for, it’s wise to do a little advance research (at napavalley.com/wineries, for example) to see which locations best match your interests. But you might start your day at the Beringer estate. Founded in 1876 by German expat Jacob Beringer, it’s the oldest continuously operating winery in Napa. In addition to a tasting of wines, you can poke around the Rhine House, a Victorian manse built by Jacob’s brother Frederick. Check out the stunning stained-glass windows, which in 1884 cost a thenwhopping $6,000 to install. From the oldest, move on to the most famous: Robert Mondavi. Established in 1966, it was the first major winery to open in the valley after Prohibition, and its eponymous founder is credited with doing more to put Napa on the map than any other viticulturist. Before he came along, wine wasn’t the staple in American households that it is today. In fact, even you—after this visit—may never think of wine in quite the same way again. “Voting with a visit” for the future of Napa is surely one of the tastiest, most warming ways you’ll ever do a publicspirited deed. Despite the fires of 2017, the wise betting says it won’t be long before Napa is better than ever. We can all raise our glasses and drink to that.

Opposite page, clockwise from top: A Balloons Above the Valley flight will ensure a bird’s-eye view of the area; the Napa Valley Wine Train offers a three-hour ride and stops at several wineries; the Archer Hotel’s rooftop is perfect for relaxing in either the sun or umbrella-provided shade; the Charlie Palmer Steak eatery offers artisan American beef and locally sourced ingredients; the Archer’s suites feature down duvets and pillows, along with Frette bathrobes and Malin+Goetz bath amenities; and Charlie Palmer’s Doughnut Wheel is the perfect ending to any meal.

PACK LIKE A PRO Another trip, another bag to fill. Here are some handy hints to get what you need in your carry-on. By Darius Amos

There are some travel tricks that might never be solved, from getting around long security lines at the airport to avoiding baggage check-in fees. But a trip with less stress is indeed possible, and it begins when you’re packing at home—because whether you’re away for business or pleasure, you don’t want to get stuck ironing a dress shirt in the hotel room or discovering that you need another pair of trousers. How do you avoid those conundrums? With careful and thoughtful packing, you can fit everything you need into your suitcase without overstuffing it.

| GARMANY

SMART CHOICES

Start with a great bag, then think about what you’ll actually use. Are you going to meetings all day and dinners at night? What will the weather be like? Sort out the outfits that you’ll be wearing each day, choosing pieces that can be mixed and matched in case plans (or moods) change. Another just in case: Add an extra pair of socks and underwear. Now comes the fun: maneuvering and fitting your pieces into the bag. Shoes go first, taking their

proper place at the bottom of the bag. The heaviest items should go above the wheels, if your suitcase has them; otherwise, they should be next to the hinge that attaches the lid. And use those Ferragamo shoes to maximize space—before slipping footwear into their protective shoe bags, fill them with small things like socks, belts, ties and jewelry. WHAT’S YOUR METHOD?

Of the three most popular clothes-packing methods—rolling, folding or bundling—none is the hands-down best option. Regardless of which you choose, each has its pros and cons. Tightly rolled clothing is the best way to maximize your suitcase’s real estate, and it works best for items like T-shirts, shorts, pajamas and sweats as well as those made of synthetic fabrics such as nylon. But alas, rolling can create unwanted creases in some of your garments. So if you’re packing a couple of Eton dress shirts or Incotex pants, consider folding them along the creases they’re supposed to have. Folding is also the easiest and most familiar method but not necessarily the most space efficient, as it might leave

gaps between clothing stacks. That brings us to bundling—which is the strategic folding, almost origami-like, of all your garments into one package. The trick is to put pieces that wrinkle easiest on the outer layer and those you don’t mind being crumpled on the inside. For example, lay a jacket flat face down and arms extended, then place dress shirts and trousers flat on top of it. Finish the pile with sweaters, T-shirts and a core item in the middle such as a toiletry bag. Now the fun: Work backward tightly folding each item around the core until you have, ta-da, a completed bundle. If you’re a bundling rookie, you’ll likely need some time and practice before mastering this method. STASH THE SPORTCOAT

There is a way to effectively pack a sportcoat in a carry-on. Fold the sportcoat in half, shoulder to shoulder, then turn one shoulder inside out over the other so the lining is facing outward. For a suit, place the folded jacket in the middle of the outstretched pants and fold trousers around it. Voilà­—you’re ready to go!

GROOMING

The Male Makeover

Unhappy with the mug you saw in the mirror this morning? These treatments are so quick, they’re the epitome of a “lunch-hour procedure” — and they’ll easily help you love the way you look.

YELLOW TEETH

DOUBLE CHIN

BUSHY EYEBROWS

FINE WRINKLES

Just how important is a nice smile? In a survey conducted by Match.com, 71% of women said that when it comes to a potential date, the first thing they look at is his teeth. If that isn’t reason enough to polish your grill, here’s one more: It’s easy. Your dentist can provide an in-office laser treatment and lighten your teeth anywhere from six to 12 shades in just one visit, which will take about 30 minutes. You can also try an at-home whitening treatment— Crest, for one, has six options in its 3D White line, including the Luxe Professional Effects kit that promises to remove 14 years of stains. Meanwhile, Go Smile offers an alternative to strips: Its Super White Snap Packs contain capsules of whitening formula that are applied in the morning and at night before bed for seven days. If you’re feeling extra DIY, try brushing with the contents of an activated charcoal capsule: Just as the substance absorbs impurities in your gut, it can also draw stains right off your teeth.

First, the bad news: That double chin you’re getting may be genetic, and any extra time in the gym won’t help. The good news: You can get rid of it with CoolSculpting. The procedure is modern technology’s update on liposuction, offering a non-invasive way to remove fat deposits (see ya, scars!) in a session that typically lasts from 35 to 60 minutes. So how does it work? A precisely controlled cooling treatment actually freezes—and kills—fat cells; in the following weeks, your body will naturally process and eliminate them. You may feel mild pinching, tugging, stinging and aching during the treatment, but those sensations will decrease as the area becomes numb. Afterward, you might experience temporary redness, swelling or bruising and a sensation of fullness in the back of your throat, but those side effects should disappear in a few days. Many patients see dramatic results between one and three months after a session; some see an improvement after just a few weeks.

You may have gotten away with au natural eyebrows so far, but men in their late 20s and 30s often develop a new (and decidedly different) hair growth pattern that can result in a messy look or, worse, the dreaded uni-brow. Fortunately, there’s a solution (and it doesn’t have to do with wax, because we all remember that scene in The 40-Year-Old Virgin). Threading is an ancient Indian hair removal that uses—you guessed it—a thread to pull along hair in a twisting motion; that, in turn, traps the hair in a mini-lasso and lifts it right out. The method is ridiculously precise, and because hair is removed straight from the follicle, it won’t come back for about six weeks. Even better: The entire procedure can take as little as two minutes. Oh, and if you’re like Andy (aka that infamous onscreen virgin) and want to rid your chest of its fur, don’t think you’ve found a new way to avoid a wax job: Threading is generally done only on the face.

Already seeing a few lines? Consider microdermabrasion, a non-invasive, non-chemical remedy that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells on your face and stimulate the production of new skin cells that come with higher levels of collagen and elastin (the stuff that lets skin stretch and bounce back). The results: the debut of your younger, healthier-looking face. Microdermabrasion can improve a number of other skin conditions too, including light acne scars, clogged pores and rosacea. The procedure is pretty painless and, best of all, it takes about 30 minutes and will only leave your face with a healthy pink flush afterward—so you can head back to the office with no one the wiser.
