Ask the MB

Wool/Cashmere Pleated Pant via Mark Shale, $175.00
Wool/Cashmere Pleated Pant via Mark Shale. $175.00.
Q: Have pleated pants gone out of style? Are they better for hiding my fat belly or not?
— Scott


A: Yes. Not.

Nothing personal, Scott, but where in the hell do people get the idea that pleats hide fat bellies? Pleats are extra material, puffing out in the wrong place, that actually make you look fatter than you actually are.

The only time we've ever seen successful pleat implementations is on short, slight, thin MBs trying to look a little bigger and older than the real thing.

Stick to flat-fronts, make sure they fit properly, and hit the damn treadmill.

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.
