Feel and Look Great Again! sneak peek


get the blues! p. 7

Our community has gone through a lot in the past two years, experienced both ups and downs and highs and lows. Raleigh Limited Menswear is no exception, and we’d like to thank everyone— family, friends, associates, tailors and customers— who supported us during the pandemic. Your loyalty and friendship mean a great deal to us, and we’re looking forward to many more years with you as we continue the transition back to normalcy. We’re excited to help you return to familiar routines, and that includes looking and feeling great. This year marks Raleigh’s 50th anniversary, which we will be celebrating later in 2022—stay tuned for details. As you wait for the party, remember to visit our staff in the store and peruse the best offerings for all your upcoming events, from office meetings to weddings to galas. You’ll quickly fall in love with new soft-constructed, 100 percent cashmere sportcoats from Sartorio and Kired, a division of the great Kiton house in Napoli. Another favorite is the latest from Isaia, which offers updated sportswear and tailored garments in unique fabrics and colors that will make you stand out in spring and summer. And for the finest luxury pieces, create something special with Ermenegildo Zegna and its made-to-measure offerings. One thing many of us discovered over the past two years is a penchant for dressing casually. It’s clear that this lifestyle is more than a trend, but

remember that you don’t have to sacrifice quality and craftsmanship for comfort. Brands like Peter Millar and G/Fore, new to Raleigh this season, offer refined jackets, vests, shirts, pants and more—perfect for a round on the golf course or a round of drinks with friends. Great denim from PT and Jacob Cohen is another way to dress up a casual look; these pants are made with tech fabrics to provide maximum quality and comfort. Pair them with warmweather knitwear (think fine silk, cotton and linen) from Fedeli and Mandelli and a lightweight jacket from Herno. Of course, finish your look with the footwear from our shoe department. Our team will show you the very best from brands like Golden Goose and Zegna. You’ll see many of these brands and looks as you flip through this edition of Raleigh. We also filled this issue with more articles that will surely interest you. For instance, boating enthusiasts will enjoy reading about the world’s finest yacht clubs on page 36; golfers can imagine lush greens when they read about a new Oregon course on page 38; and those who appreciate a good cocktail will raise a glass to the sips featured on page 44. If you are just visiting us for the first time or have known us for decades, allow us to help you elevate your style to reflect your sophistication and personality. We look forward to seeing you this season.

Don’t be afraid to admit if you became content throwing on loungewear during the course of the pandemic. It might’ve even been your outfit of choice—sweatpants, T-shirts, athleisure wear—as you ventured to the grocery store or picked up a to-go order from your favorite restaurant. We get it: That clothing is comfortable. But the time has come to reserve the athletic gear for the gym and look beyond the superrelaxed clothing standards of the quarantine. In other words, let’s get back into fashion. As things slowly return to normal, as we head out for more outdoor dining experiences with friends, remember that dressing up and looking good is still your No. 1 option. At Raleigh, we’re always ready to help you find the latest styles and refresh your closet.


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 G/FORE, a Beverly Hills-based brand that’s new to Raleigh this season. Their collection of performance polos, lightweight pullover sweaters and water-resistant vests and jackets are crafted from premium fabrics to allow maximum comfort and stretch on the course. But here’s the best part: G/FORE garments are so stylish and refined that you can wear them for everyday use, from an after-work happy hour to casual summer Fridays at the office to a weekend getaway. Ask your Raleigh associate for advice about G/FORE and our finest golf wear—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.



No matter your style, you have to admit that the right pair of denim is worth its weight in gold. Well, Raleigh has struck gold with Jacob Cohen. Company patriarch Tato Bardelle launched the brand in 1985, and his son, Nicola, has perfected the formula. Made in Italy and designed for discerning men, Jacob Cohen can be counted on for comfortable, high-quality fabrics that are elegant and on trend. 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. Not only customer-friendly but eco-conscious as well, Jacob Cohen uses natural dyes and eschews harsh chemicals in the coloring and fixing process. That means when you try on a pair of Jacob Cohen jeans, you look good, feel good and are doing good.

It’s almost a fashion show when Pacers players arrive at Gainbridge Fieldhouse dressed to the nines for their home games. But the pros aren’t the only basketballers who know something about style. Anthony Leal, Rob Phinisee and Race Thompson, members of the Indiana Hoosiers men’s basketball team, visited Raleigh to get suited up for a winter home game at Assembly Hall against Big 10 rival Wisconsin. The store’s Dream Team of style pros, including Mark Koplow, sized up the fellas (they range in height from 6’1” to 6’8”!) and helped each of them pick out a perfectly fitting suit for game day. Raleigh and Indiana basketball— now that’s a winning combo!



Mark Koplow explains how to sail through life without giving offense. After wearing joggers and hoodies for the past two years, I’m finally heading back to the office. What should I wear? —Confused in Castleton Remember “business casual?” Well, that’s the code word for the new back-to-work fashion. Instead of khakis and polo shirts, try a well-fitted sportcoat (especially if you meet with clients), an open collar sport shirt and the right tailored trousers. Skip the running shoes and wear a fashion sneaker, loafer or polished shoe with a matching belt. Many of us have returned to after-work socializing, so on Fridays, swap the trousers for a hip pair of jeans and you’ll be ready to hit your favorite happy hour spot after work.

Be aware of these four experimental musical artists, whose sounds are so contemplatively soothing they’re almost a jolt. By Harry Dowden Music can act as a refuge and a salve, for both creator and listener. Here are four artists whose inward gazes conjure up personal visions of inner peace and maybe spring’s renewal. Their work can serve as a haven in an uncertain world:


Josiah Wise has a voice that can fill up a room, whether that’s a late-night torch-song bar or a church sanctuary on an early Sunday morning. Trained in the gospel tradition and matured in the Philly and NYC art scenes, Wise marries his virtuosic vocal runs with heart-on-sleeve emotions. The introductory Blisters EP treats a breakup with the intensity of the end of days on “four ethers” and the Soil LP explores the complexities and contradictions of modern queer love through the bittersweet “bless ur heart.” The year 2021’s Deacon, however, finds the serpentwithfeet project at its most in-love, most at-peace, most celebratory yet. That theme of simple joy is continued with Wise’s other recent release, a cover of Labi Siffre’s “Bless the Telephone,” which pays honor to the grounding presence of a loved one’s voice. In a time where communication and connection can feel like precious commodities, Wise’s pure tones remind us to remain thankful. Domestic blisses: A cover sanctioned by the queen of sensuality herself, serpentwithfeet’s performance of Björk’s “Blissing Me” is an ode to the playlist as love letter.


With penchants for down-tempo melancholia and artful piss-taking, London’s Dean Blunt has spent more than a decade crafting his own brand of hazy tunes and mysterious personae. A sense of quiet assurance pervades his catalogue, from early work with Inga Copeland as the electronic duo Hype Williams to production for A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean on the former’s album closer, “Purity.” While projects like The Redeemer sprawl and morph, 2021’s Black Metal 2 is Blunt’s most concise and direct release yet. “Dash Snow” isn’t out of place on any reverbsoaked smoke session playlist, but Blunt’s drawling assurances that things will be all right give it a weighted, tired contentment where other artists would just leave it at halfbaked vibes. On & on: Fan favorite hour-long loop “Stalker” conveys a host of amorphous moods through its repetition: the dread of a surveillance society, the watchful eye of God, the devotion bordering on obsession that marks intense love.

Slowly unfolding like petals of a cereus that blooms one night a year, the music of Beverly GlennCopeland exudes a sense of patient, calm wonder. Perhaps it’s fitting that his fame hasn’t flowered until recently, ushered out of relative obscurity into the place of post-genre elder statesman. Now a septuagenarian, Glenn-Copeland crafted 1986’s Keyboard Fantasies with computers in the winter woods of Ontario. Welcoming opener “Ever New” and meditative closer “Sunset Village” bookend the watershed collection of sincere electronic music. A documentary that shares the album title’s name chronicles this musician’s journey as a transmasculine black composer, and 2021’s Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined sees many of Glenn-Copeland’s big-name acolytes—Blood Orange, Bon Iver and Arca, to name three— put their spins on the influential work. Roots of the sound: “Deep River: Live at Le Guess Who?”, Glenn-Copeland’s powerful rendition of the black spiritual, pays homage to his late parents and reveals the timelessness of his voice and approach.


Taja Cheek’s compositions are layered with the impasto brushstrokes of many paints. Most instruments under the sun, samples, loops, natural sounds, effects, etc.—her palette is not picky, and the result on tracks like “Two Face” on 2021’s Fatigue ebb and flow with an ocean of ideas. L’Rain’s 2017 self-titled debut was worldly yet internal, while the follow-up greatly expands the cast of collaborators and shimmers with the glow of collective creativity from collaged opener “Fly, Die” onwards. Track lengths are sequenced in a “short-then-long” approach, which assists the flow while never feeling disjointed: It still exists as a whole document, if a stream-of-consciousness one. The real joy in L’Rain’s music is the lack of second-guessing, a process whose discipline is the willingness to follow any spark. Real Textures: Cheek & Co.’s performance for KEXP shows that Fatigue isn’t just a “studio record,” but one that is tangible and tactile and exists through performance. Mariya Takeuchi

Avant-garde tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s have found new appreciation thanks to archivists, algorithms, samplers and film. Here are some diamonds that have been lifted from the rough—from dusty crates to headphones the world over, culminating with a bona fide internet smash hit.

…in which Mark Koplow solves your sartorial dilemmas. Because of the pandemic, casual and comfortable styles took center stage. Do you see this turning around and more tailored, put together looks coming back? That will be an evolution. People have enjoyed dressing more casually, but they still want to look good—they’re shopping for a different look. People want more sportswear, pieces that are more comfortable but equally fashionable, whether it’s five-pocket trousers from PT Torino, knitwear by Autumn Cashmere or an overshirt made of cashmere.

What other pieces are you excited about this season? Our active/leisure collections are hot. We added G/Fore, uber luxury denim line Jacob Cohen and have expanded our luxury sportswear in Zegna and Isaia. Of course, Peter Millar always has a strong presence. What kind of footwear pairs well with those collections? Sneakers will continue to be important, and our offerings from DiBianco, Common Projects and Zegna are all fresh for spring/ summer. Guys also can’t go wrong with classics from Ferragamo and Tod’s.

For a relaxed backyard event, a linen sport shirt or a cool polo with drawstring trousers is a timeless look. If you’re dressing up for an event, a classic sportcoat is the way to go—but, of course, you’ll need something borderline outrageous if the event you’re going to is the Kentucky Derby. And Raleigh’s made-to-measure program is perfect for formal events. Yes, that’s the beauty of our store. You have so many options for color, pattern, fabric and more with a made-to-measure tuxedo. We do tailored clothing as well as sportswear. Our Zegna program is growing, with knits, jeans and suede jackets all available. What’s a good gift for grads and dads? We carry Secrid wallets that are great, and Faber Castell writing instruments are also wonderful gifts that everyone loves to receive. But the best gift of all: a Raleigh gift card. You don’t have to worry about size and color, and they’re good any time!

What would you wear to an afternoon outdoor summer party? And to a formal event?


How can people make athleisure fashionable? For spring, guys can wear drawstring jogger-style pants, soft constructed jackets and overshirts, which are very popular now. Think of an overshirt as a sport shirt with memory and stretch properties. They’re more comfortable and have more modern fits than the overshirts of yesteryear. We just got in cool pieces from Isaia and Eleventy. You’ll find them in luxury to uber luxury categories.

Spring weather is unpredictable. What’s ideal for outerwear? Raleigh has all kinds of lightweight pieces and tech-fabric jackets that have great colors and classic fits. And they handle all sorts of seasonal weather: They’re water resistant, and many have removable hoods. You’ll find wonderful jackets at Raleigh from brands like Herno and Ermenegildo Zegna. Pair them with lightweight knitwear or a cool T-shirt and spring denim.

double down

Must a double-breasted jacket mean a formal look? Not at all, declares a fashion expert. In fact, it can be more versatile than you ever suspected. Check out these livelier possibilities. “Fashion,” writes Scott Schuman, “is about making yourself happy and expressing yourself.” The photographer, fashion editor and blogger applies this philosophy to the double-breasted (DB) jacket (and much more) in his book, The Sartorialist Man: Inspiration Every Man Wants, Education Every Man Needs (Rizzoli 2020). There are “rules” about the DB, of course, and Schuman’s approach is neither to ignore them nor to follow them slavishly. Instead, he regards them “the way I do table manners: The arcane rules about flatware placement are less crucial now, but they have their grounding in common sense. The first step, rules or no rules, is learning what fits you best.” Schuman’s time-tested, double-breasted wisdom:



A double-breasted jacket, less contoured and even slightly boxy at the waist and with wide lapels to emphasize the shoulders, is the optimal choice for the tall, slim man. Another trick to add the illusion of width is to use the slight flare created by a double-vented jacket. The length of a tall man’s jacket should fall between the end of the thumb and the forefinger; while slightly longer than standard, this tends to de-emphasize very long legs.


The double-breasted jacket is considered the dressiest jacket option in a gentleman’s wardrobe. The rule that a DB should always be worn buttoned, except when sitting down, adds to its (literally) buttoned-up formality. Lately I’ve seen men wearing a DB more casually; the key to doing it well is creating a visually dramatic contrast between the jacket and the rest of the look. Above, we see a double-breasted jacket with white jeans and a knit, and one worn as a suit but with a low-cut tank. Notice that these gentlemen aren’t wearing their jackets casually (the jackets are buttoned), but they’re wearing them with casual items.

Z Is For Zendaya At 25, this accomplished actress-singer with a single name is rapidly becoming an A-lister. By Donna Rolando


Zendaya means “to give thanks” in the African Shona language, and the multiple award-winning actress-singer who wears that name gives fans myriad reasons to be thankful, including her knockout red-carpet fashion sense. With such an expressive single moniker, she sees no reason to fully identify herself as Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman. Just in case stardom didn’t happen, the 25-year-old Zendaya, born in Oakland, California, had two other career choices in mind: teaching (like her parents) or basketball. But it soon became clear that plans B and C wouldn’t be required. Zendaya got an early start as a child model for Macy’s and other clothing stores, and kicked it up as a backup dancer before landing roles in Disney shows such as Shake It Up and K.C. Undercover. What’s more, since her Disney Channel days, Zendaya has displayed a generous spirit, particularly with charities such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the global humanitarian organization Convoy of Hope. She remains an ambassador for Convoy. “To all the parents out there, thank you for allowing me to be a role model for your children,” Zendaya says of her Disney background. “I really, really do not take that for granted.” But most aspiring stars don’t want to be trapped in the world of Disney, no matter how wonderful. Zendaya found a break when she had the chance to try out for 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Zendaya thought she was reading for another high-school-themed production, but when she found out it was the superhero film Spider-Man, she loved the idea of playing MJ, known by Marvel fans in this flick as SpiderMan/Peter Parker’s snarky classmate. Not only did Zendaya land the part, but she went on to play opposite Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in the sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home and the newest release, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which set a global box-office record in 2021. MJ is Parker’s girlfriend in the latest installation, and here’s a case of real life following fiction: Zendaya is dating her co-star off-screen too. Zendaya’s other movie roles have included The Greatest Showman (2017), a musical drama that also featured Holland; the comedy Smallfoot (2018); the romantic drama Malcolm & Marie (2021); and the family flick Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021).

Far from the world of Disney is her role as Rue, who battles with drug addiction and mental illness, in Euphoria. This HBO teen series won her an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series—the youngest winner as of 2020. It was a much shorter role (what some clocked at less than seven minutes) that put Zendaya on the red carpet at the 78th Venice International Film Festival in September, wearing a show-stopping leather gown designed by Olivier Rousteing of the French fashion house Balmain. For this short but unforgettable performance, she appeared as Chani in the Denis Villeneuve film Dune, which hit theaters and HBO Max in October. Based on the sci-fi novels by Frank Herbert, Dune was nominated this year for 10 Oscars, and Ms. Z’s daring Rousteing gown, accessorized with a 93-carat emerald Bulgari necklace, is also one for acclaim. As far as productions go, the thigh-high gown created by Rousteing for his “goddess” could get an Oscar of its own for dramatizing her curves with the help of a mannequin cast to be an exact replica of her torso. The gown gives both a wet and a dry look and takes on a desert tone that reflects upon the Arrakis planet in Dune. No stranger to the fashion world, Zendaya is ambassador for brands Valentino, Bulgari and Lancôme and previously created her own clothing line, Daya by Zendaya. Perhaps that’s where she gets the confidence to wear bold choices like the lace slip dress by Maison Valentino that turned heads at the LA premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home. The thigh-high-slit dress is covered in delicate black spiderweb details. As a triple threat, Zendaya the singer made the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with her Hollywood Records single “Replay” in 2012 and also did a successful collaboration with Zac Efron on “Rewrite the Stars,” part of The Greatest Showman soundtrack. Throughout her career, Zendaya’s dancing chops have also garnered recognition, from her Disney Channel days to kicking it for TV on Dancing with the Stars, and she says the dance partner she’d most like to have had is Michael Jackson. In her first quarter-century, this mononymous multitalent has more than made a name for herself. She even has a Barbie doll made especially in her image. Zendaya has much to be thankful for, and there’s time for many, many more glories to come.

As the ambassador for Valentino, Bulgari and Lancôme, Emmy-winning multi-hyphenate Zendaya gets plenty of opportunities to experiment with fashion. “Clothes sometimes are very emotional, so I get to embody these different facets—maybe they’re of myself, or maybe they’re alter egos,” she told InStyle in 2021. “But I get to meet these different women through clothes.”

the RIGHT WAY This gentleman’s primer will help you look perfectly polished.

Don’t know the difference between a trilby and a fedora? You’re not alone. Plenty of men eschew accessorizing because they are unsure of the right way to incorporate pieces, such as scarves and vests. Consider this our campaign to change your mind about the sartorial details you may be avoiding. So, go ahead. Follow these tips for donning accessories like a pro and upgrade your summer style.

IN-VESTED There is no right or wrong way to wear a vest: You simply put it over or under anything in your wardrobe for a fashionable, layered look. Trade in the suit jacket or blazer for a knit or twill vest on hot, humid days. Or keep it traditional with a three-piece suit. Simply remove your suit jacket and you’ll still look professional while staying cool. If you want to slenderize your midsection, nothing is more flattering than a knit vest. Rather than wearing a button-front shirt tucked into pants with a dark belt circling the widest part of the body, a knit vest covers the middle, creating a more flattering line. It is best to match the color of the vest to the color of the pants for a minimizing monochromatic look. Or if the vest has a pattern, match the base color to the pants. On those spring days when there is still a nip in the air, a lightweight nylon quilted vest is the quintessential outerwear piece. This season, brightly hued outerwear is all the rage. Utility and field vests are still popular, and we love that they combine function with fashion. When traveling, a vest with many pockets will save you from frantically searching through your carry-on for your passport, cash, credit cards, phone, ad infinitum.



20 RAL.ss22.the right way 3.indd 20

A group of mathematicians in Stockholm recently calcuated that there are 177,147 ways to tie a tie. But most men wear one of three basic tie knots: the fourin-hand, the half Windsor and the full Windsor. The last is a thick, wide triangular knot that is said to project confidence and works well with on-trend spread and cutaway shirt collars. Once you decide on the knot, make sure the tip of your tie ends at the middle of your belt buckle or waistband. Too long and the look is frumpy; too short and it just looks silly. And if you still have wide ties hanging in your closet, give them away. The acceptable width for a tie in 2022 ranges from 2½ inches to 3 inches. Historically, silk has been the fabric of choice for neckwear, but these days

designers are blending silk with wool, wool with cotton and cotton with linen for a look that’s less shiny and very on trend. Try a luxury blend or a pure cashmere for a more contemporary expression.

DON’T SCOFF THE SCARF If you’ve traveled to Italy, you’ve probably noticed many more Italian men wear scarves in warmer weather than men in the States do. Even in sweltering heat, you’ll see Italian men draping, tying or wrapping beautiful lengths of fabric around their necks. The good news is tying a scarf is a lot easier than tying a tie. The best way to wear a scarf—the nonchalant Italian way—is simply to drape it around the neck and let the ends hang down. If you prefer to wrap or tie, there are two easy ways to do it: For a once-around wrap, drape the scarf around the neck, one end longer than the other. Wrap the longer end around the neck and let both ends hang down. Our favorite way to wear a scarf: Fold it in half lengthwise, drape it over the neck and bring the loose ends through the opening formed by the folded end. Tighten to your comfort level. For spring, try featherweight cashmere, printed linen and linen blends to add a touch of personality to both sportswear and tailored clothing.

TOP IT OFF The fedora remains the quintessential gentleman’s hat. While it’s no longer the 1940s when almost every man in the stands at Yankee Stadium wore a fedora, this classic model remains a widely recognized symbol of masculinity and class. In recent years, however, styles including bucket hats, trilbys and baseball caps have added a suitably rebellious touch to any look—from a T-shirt and jeans to a traditional suit. Once you’ve mastered the rules for styling accessories the “right way,” go ahead and break them to express your own individual style.

shirt TALES

Your style. Your comfort. Your exact fit. Made-to-measure is a shirt story that always has a happy ending. Don’t get us wrong: We love off-the-rack garments, and they can create memorable looks. But face it—those shirts don’t fit like a made-to-measure shirt. Not every guy is an average Joe, so standard retail sizes and designs won’t always cut it. Because made-to-measure is based on your measurements, each shirt is guaranteed to fit perfectly. We offer made-to-measure shirts from some of the world’s finest designers in addition to the country’s top dedicated shirtmakers. Each of the renowned brands has its own distinctive style, and we know you do too. So what do you have to do to get your unique piece? That’s easy: Let us do the work. A common misconception is that made-to-measure is a complicated and costly proposition. That’s not at all true. We partner with makers to offer options at several price points, making it accessible for everyone. Here’s how it works: Our made-to-measure experts will talk to you about your personal style, fit, details and occasion. We will take you through the seemingly countless number of options to design exactly what you have in mind. Whether it’s formal, business or casual—we can do it all.


Here is where you let your creativity and attitude shine. We’ll present you with a plethora of options to customize your shirt. Think about the type of collar you prefer. For instance, the cutaway collar provides plenty of room if you wear a Windsor tie knot or the spread collar that has a wide yet crisp look with or without a tie. You have your choice of cuffs too. A two-button barrel cuff is perfect for everyday or to wear to a more casual office. Rounded cuffs add a touch of formality to your look, or choose a sophisticated French or double cuff if you’re headed to a black-tie event or just like to wear cufflinks. Personalization doesn’t end there. Mother-of-pearl buttons? Placket or no placket? One, two or no pockets? Monogrammed or clean look? You decide.

WHAT TO EXPECT Forget about spending hours trying on clothes in a tight changing room. Once tailors have confirmed your measurements and design selections, your job is essentially done. Made-tomeasure shirts require few fittings, or in some cases none at all. (That’s more time to shop in our store for sportcoats and ties to complete the look!) It’s a modest investment of time and, if we may say so, a pretty good deal. Typically, the turnaround time for a made-to-measure shirt is three to five weeks. And you’ll pay $160 to $300 for it—about the same as a fine shirt that’s ready to wear. You can start with just one if you like, but we’re fairly sure you won’t stop there. But be warned. Once you’ve tried made-to-measure, you may find it hard to go back to off-the-rack.


First, our staff will take all your measurements—chest, neck, shoulders, arms, biceps (have you been working out?), waistline, the works. Next, you’ll select the material that will eventually go on your back and whether your shirt will be a single solid color or two tones, adorned with elegant stripes, boast a nice checked pattern or more. Our wide assortment of fabrics comes only from the most demanding mills in the world, and they satisfy all needs, wants and styles. Loose, athletic or slim fit? It’s all up to you.

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

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




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


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

Follow the SHEEP

But that was then. And it’s not how things work at the Sheep Ranch anymore. Nearly four years ago, the property’s longtime owners—Bandon Dunes developer Mike Keiser and business partner Phil Friedmann—decided it was time to elevate the Sheep Ranch into a full-blown, world-class course. To orchestrate the project, they hired the celebrated design team of Coore & Crenshaw. Scrapping the original makeshift layout, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw dreamed up a stunner in its place. Among the striking features of the Sheep Ranch is the way it seizes on the drama of its setting. The property includes roughly a mile of coastline, more than any of Bandon’s other courses, with nine greens located along the bluffs. Everywhere you look are ocean views, except when you turn inland. At that point what you see are artfully shaped fairways, threading their green fingers through gorse and ghostly pines. Because the Sheep Ranch occupies a windy site, its design is willfully player friendly. There are no sand bunkers—only grass bunkers—and the greens are open in front, so you can bound your approach shots low, under the breezes. The routing is intimate, with holes radiating out from clustered tee boxes and a shared green for the third and 16th holes. But the grandeur of the coastline also lends the course an impressive sense of scale. Like most anyone who visits Bandon Dunes, Keiser is often asked to name his favorite course. His answer never varies: He’s equally in love with all of them. Now, he has one more to love.

Opposite page, clockwise from top: Sheep Ranch allows golfers to play alongside one mile of pristine Pacific Coast oceanfront; when you turn your back to the ocean, you’re treated to artfully shaped fairways designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw; there are no sand traps on Sheep Ranch—however, ocean breeze and grass bunkers are hazards.


RAL.ss22.sporting .indd 39

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

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



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

Luxe Trucks

In whatever order, these three potent pickups are bad, badder and baddest. Remember when pickup trucks were basic, no-frills, utilitarian workhorses? Well, forget it. Today’s pickups have picked up their game when it comes to luxury and looks— without conceding anything in rugged performance. Here are three of the wildest:


A peek under the hood of Dodge’s latest entry into the super pickup truck category tells the story: There’s a Jurassic Park-like graphic depicting a Tyrannosaurus rex (T. rex) fully consuming a raptor. The automaker makes its claim for truck supremacy thanks to the TRX’s supercharged V8 Hellcat engine, which makes 702 horsepower and a blistering 0-to-60 time of 3.7 seconds. (For comparison, that time is milliseconds off the pace of some current Ferrari models.) Like the Raptor, it’s a fully capable off-roader with 12 inches of ground clearance, underbody armoring and the ability to drive through more than 32 inches of water. The level of interior luxury matches the truck’s performance, with such amenities as a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system and suede and carbon fiber accents. Top models have more options, including a digital rearview mirror, heads-up display and heated and ventilated front seats. Starting at $75,000.


Ford took the truck world by storm more than a decade ago when it rolled out the F-150 Raptor. It was an off-roading giant, bigger and more powerful than any other consumer pickup in history. Now in its third generation, the new Raptor is still at the top of the class as an off-roader—and it can go toe-to-toe with some of the best cars in the luxury market. Blue suede and leather interiors with embroidered Raptor logos are available for the cabin, which is also outfitted with a large, dual-display, touch-screen infotainment system and an animated gauge cluster. Charging ports are located throughout the truck (including the spacious back seat), and overhead auxiliary switches are available for customization should owners decide to install equipment such as a winch or light bar. While the turbo-charged V6 engine with 450 horsepower is a holdover from the previous iteration, Ford is expected to release the Raptor R later this year. The top-of-the-line model will be equipped with a supercharged V8 with around 700 horsepower. Starting at $66,000.



As U.S. automakers lock horns with one another, the stalwart Japanese company quietly enters the off-roader pickup arena with its remodeled and revamped Tundra. Based on raw numbers, the TRD Pro can’t beat the speed and power of the TRX or the anticipated Raptor R, but it certainly gives them a run for their money. Toyota dropped the V8 engine from the previous Tundra model and outfitted the TRD Pro with a twin-turbo I-Force V6 hybrid that generates 440 horsepower. That’s plenty of muscle to tow or go off-road, but the engine gets extra points for fuel efficiency—24 miles per gallon puts it at the head of the class. Inside, the pickup boasts many of the same features found in Toyota’s iconic sedans—for example, a quiet and comfortable ride. What’s different is a massive 14-inch infotainment screen that is more intuitive than the systems found in the Camry and Corolla. The display offers a clear picture for the multiple exterior cameras. Also firsts for Toyota are the TRD Pro’s large digital gauge cluster and the uberpatriotic camouflage detailing on the seats. Starting at $51,000.

Splitting Hairs Tonsorially uncertain? Here’s how to trim—and buzz—and brush—and tweeze to look your best. HAIRLINE

Cutting and trimming the hair on your head should be left to the experts for obvious reasons, but you can maintain a well-groomed hairline in between cuts. How? By washing your hair every two to three days rather than daily and by not weighing it down with too many products. These practices not only keep hair healthier, but also make it look thicker, thus helping to disguise receding hairlines. A bit of pomade and a comb—or your fingers—is all that’s needed to maintain your hairline on a daily basis, but you can also keep a small electric razor handy for when you need to tidy up around the edges.


The No. 1 rule for grooming your brows? Don’t overdo it. That means keeping their natural, straight shape—arched brows have a more feminine look—and only getting rid of the stragglers. To avoid the dreaded unibrow, start by placing your finger on the bridge of your nose and plucking only the hairs your finger touches. Then maintain the shape and look of the brows by trimming monthly or so; just brush hairs upward and snip only the ends (or have your barber do it for you). Tweezing carefully and sparingly with an angled tweezer is an option too, but under no circumstances should you wax those bad boys just because the lady in your life is doing it. You’ve been warned.


Once your beard has reached the desired length, train the hairs to grow in a downward direction by brushing daily with a boar bristle brush. Then use grooming scissors or an electric razor with the guard setting of your choice once a week or so to trim and get rid of split ends and strays. Just make sure you do so with the grain to minimize bumps and irritation. Finally, keep your beard and mustache clean by rinsing with a beard wash or mild soap and water two to three times a week—and add a moisturizing beard oil when you’re feeling fancy (or itchy).


Similar rules apply when going below the neck; always trim—do not shave, please—with the grain to reduce irritation. But how low should you go? There’s no harm in manscaping down to your belly button—“happy trail” included—but make sure the amount of hair on your torso matches with the amount on your face. You don’t want to be scruffy up top and resemble a boy bander below the neck, do you? Also, start with a higher guard setting when buzzing here. You can always go back in for another round later if it’s still too scraggly, but you can’t undo a too-short style.

RALEIGH GIFT CARDS A Raleigh Gift Card guarantees your gift will be the perfect style, size and color. Purchase a gift card at the store in any denomination you choose for a remembrance that will dazzle any lucky recipient.

MADE-TOMEASURE SERVICE Our Made-to-Measure service takes advantage of the relationships we have established with Italian manufacturers to deliver a suit that is smart and sexy—and a good value— in just four to six weeks. You won’t find a better plan to look your best.

COFFEE BAR Like any gracious host, we always offer our guests something to drink. The Lavazza Bar is the perfect place to relax, reflect and enjoy coffee, espresso, cappuccino or a cool drink in between trips to the dressing room. Keep up with the latest scores on our flat screen. Need to charge your iPhone or iPad? No problem. We’ve got all the bases covered.



Sure, all of your new clothes look great at the store, but sometimes, once you get home, it’s hard to remember what goes with what. Just ask and we’ll be happy to photograph your ensembles.
