Ask the MB: Lack of Content

This hurt us way more than it hurt you
This hurt us way more than it hurt you
Q: Look, we agree on a lot, and disagree on a few things. But one post a week? Stop slacking. You're making us other MBs feel alone in a world of huge watches, True Religion and Robert Graham. It's fuckin' scary and it's nice to hear another voice of sanity out there.

A: We spent all last week breaking down game film, and since the fiasco on Sunday we're slowly emerging from a prescription drug and MB cocktail-induced shopping binge that triggered cardmember security calls from U.S. Bank, Chase, Citigroup, and even our local credit union.

The primary object of our expensive coping mechanism was the incredibly good deals at The Corner (aka the high-end YOOX), which we highly recommend you check out before everything is gone. Our bounty:

* M. Grifoni Denim checked wool cardigan
* M. Grifoni Denim plaid oblong scarf
* Kris Van Assche high-top sneakers
* Christopher Kane houndstooth cashmere gloves
* Christopher Kane plaid silk/cashmere cardigan
* Aspesi navy down jacket
* Z Zegna steel grey down jacket
* Kolor grey cashmere/silk blazer
* Aspesi dark brown shirt jacket
* Ann Demeulemeester long sleeve white tee
* Common Projects brown tennies

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.
