Ask the MB: Cardigan Buttoning

I know what you're thinking. 'Did he button 6 buttons or only none?'

Q: As a follow up to your recent post about cardigans. Should one wear them buttoned or not?

A: We never button our cardigans, except for the walk home from the Pulaski bar scene on a chilly night when we will ineptly button them off by one button, and if we've had enough Magnificent Bastard cocktails, two.

There's something about buttoning a cardigan that's a bit too Mr. Rogers-y (even though he preferred zips).

This is not to say buttoning a cardigan evenly can't work. David Beckham does this well, but as you'll notice, he's always got an artfully disheveled offset.

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.
