Ask the MB -- Bespoke Suit

Ask the MB -- Bespoke Suit
Q: I am thinking about getting a new suit from this custom shoppe in NYC. Please let me know if you approve of it: www.freemanssportingclub.com
--Graham


A: Graham, if you can afford a bespoke suit from Freemans Sporting Club, you have definitely arrived. Of course we approve of it. Where else can you find this mental "shacket" (pictured), and a badger-hair shaving brush in an extra-sturdy chrome handle ($230)?

Plus, any joint with this history is automatically inducted into the Magnificent Bastard Hall of Fame:

Freemans Sporting Club was borne out of a gathering of close friends playing pool, carousing, and drinking whisky above Freemans Restaurant in New York City. The regular meetings led the group to organize trips to camp, shoot, fish, and enjoy time in nature outside the concrete canyons of New York. When Taavo Somer, the defacto leader of the troupe, created his menswear line in 2004 it was only natural that the garments be named, F.S.C., after the club, ideals, and activities that inspired them.

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
