Esquire declares this blazer to be the quintessential fall piece to add to your already classy wardrobe, and for good reason. This favorite fabric of the Duke of Windsor, his grandfather King Edward VII and his father, King George V, will keep you looking like a Gentleman throughout the fall.
This classic look pairs with dark jeans, gingham and solid colored shirts, as well as most sweaters. Simply put there isn’t much you can throw at the tweed blazer that won’t stick. Initially developed by the Scots, (and I tout most of their developments. See: Golf, Scotch, Flasks, The Breech-Loading Rifle, etc.) this sport coat has a way of making you look both classic and modern. Comfortable in the countryside or in the city.
I recommend, as always, J.Crew’s Charcoal Tweed Blazer, or a classic Blazer from Harris Tweed (pictured). And as with any Jacket, know your size and trust your tailor.
Face it, you had a long week. Work, meetings, presentations, probably a couple happy hours. Then you had a big weekend, cut loose, threw back a few too many cold beers. Now it’s Sunday, your eyes are bloodshot, your body feels like you fell down a flight of stairs (theres a likelihood that you may have), you need a cure. We feel your pain (quite literally). So every Sunday AG will bring you a new hang-over cure for you to try. This week’s is…
The Perfect Bloody Mary:
2 oz Absolute Peppar (of if you’re really adventurous try Bakon Vodka http://bakonvodka.com/)
10 oz of Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix
A dash of Tabasco and Worcestershire
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Garnish with two olives, a lime and a celery stick
Shake and enjoy.
How it works:
While your body is dealing with the new (and delicious) alcohol, it is ignoring the copious amounts of liquor still in your system. Meanwhile the Zing Zang and garnish are full of vitamins to help replenish your body. So enjoy a little “hair of the dog that bit you.”
This isn’t high school. Do yourself a favor, and open a Brooks Brothers catalogue.
