Ask the MB: V-Neck Sweater Sans Shirt

Ask the MB: V-Neck Sweater Sans Shirt
Q: You've heartily endorsed v-neck sweaters and have talked a lot about what should and should not be worn under them. But can a middle-aged MB wear them solo, sans shirt?
--Markoni


A: This is not a look we can endorse -- unless you are a young, serious, manscaped model -- for at least three reasons:

1. Too much laundry. Wearing clothing in direct contact with the skin requires cleaning, and cashmere sweaters -- as if you'd be wearing anything else! -- should be washed even less frequently than cats. It's just too hard on them.

2. Layering is a key component of artful dishevelment, and chest hair doesn't count.

3. What would we do with all our collared shirts?

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.
