When is it appropriate to start wearing my...
They say there’s a sucker born ever minute, but don’t be conned by pedantic sartorial regulations. The Memorial Day through Labor Day restriction is a bit stifling. Certainly, today’s standards would allow for a fine seersucker ensemble on Derby Day. One would never be expected to sweat through My Old Kentucky Homein wool. The true thermometer for appropriate dress is temperature; when things...

Cutting Cigars - How to cut a cigar
A CIGAR SHOULD BE CUT JUST ABOVE THE CAP LINE, RIGHT BEFORE THE CURVED END OF THE CIGAR STARTS TO STRAIGHTEN OUT. The objective is to create an aperture that ensures a smooth opening for smoking without damaging the structure. A double or single bladed cutter, a special cigar scissor or a punch cutter with a circular blade are all different styles of cigar cutters. THE PIERCE: A simple small...

No matter what you always should wear collar stays. This seems simple but it is pretty simple to forget to put them on. I invested in metal collar stays a couple years ago and never looked back. I bought some to put in my brief case, desk, and take some when I travel. Your boss at one time will forget them so it doesn’t hurt to not only cover your own ass but to have some for him. ...

Nightcap - The Presbyterian
The Presbyterian is one of those classic cocktails that is subject to interpretation. Despite its simple list of three ingredients, there are many variations. Some recipes will use ginger ale while others substitute it for 7-up or another other lemon-lime soda. On the base liquor side, one thing is for sure, whiskey is necessary, but whether that be bourbon, rye or a good-old blended whiskey is...
