Don't Diminish Your ASSets

True Religion Brand Jeans 'Luke Heritage Fox' Bootcut Jeans  via Nordstrom, $282.00
True Religion Brand Jeans 'Luke Heritage Fox' Bootcut Jeans via Nordstrom. $282.00.
We're perpetually perplexed by the apparent success of True Religion jeans for men. Where do they get off charging $282 for their denim?

True Religion works great on select women, and men with significant amounts of extra chub, but if you work at staying in shape, why would you ever consider hiding a potentially winning asset behind long, deep pockets with flaps and large shiny buttons?

You wouldn't.

This brand is headed post-peak. Avoid, even if on sale.

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.
