Ask the MB -- The Sartorialist

Q: I see the MB as the smart ass, more web-savvy younger brother to The Sartorialist. How do you see The Sartorialist?

A: You forgot drunker. And with the better name.

We've got nothing but love and admiration for Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist), though we do bring a different point of view to what it means to be a man. That being said, anyone who wears a pocket square like that is definitely someone to be reckoned with.

Q: What is your opinion of the Sartorialist? It is a fashion blog that some of my friends recommended to me, and while I find a few of its entries to be MB-esque, I find many of them to be far too trendy and TTH. What is your opinion?

A: We have nothing but respect and admiration for The Sartorialist. Especially because he's got excellent taste in women.

A lot of his observations and recommendations are too trendy and TTH because he's in Manhattan. Now, there's nothing wrong with The Big Apple -- a couple of us went there once on a field trip in 8th grade -- but being from Pulaski, WI we naturally provide a more carefree, understated approach to men's style. Maybe it's NTHE (Not Trying Hard Enough) for some, but we're confident that if you follow the advice given in these pages, when you're a grandfather and look back at the photographs that document your life, you can do so with beaming pride instead of asking yourself, "What the fuck was I thinking?"




The classic Negroni is simply equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. You can do better.

  • 5 parts Plymouth gin
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 1 part dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
