For this past weekend’s Fashion Forward, I decided it was about time we focus on menswear. With the help of an expert team, I endeavored to bring you looks that were both fresh and classic at the same time, with what is perhaps a more subtle form of subversion than you may be accustomed to expecting from me.

Boston’s conservative men can take their cues from the übertrim jackets, the narrow lapels, the extra inch of cuff showing at each sleeve (an homage to Thom Browne which you can accomplish more affordably by simply buying your jackets a size down…). There are other subtle references, of course, but I prefer you discover those for yourself, and knowing you to be quite saavy readers, have little doubt that you will.

Again, many thanks to those who helped bring this project together, including the ever-so-charming team at Miltons and a certain Annette Goubeaux at Neiman Marcus.

Much love –
JGC

Get ready to meet your new favorite summer cocktail.  Sure, sangria, mojitos, and margaritas will always hold a place in my heart, but if you’re anything like me, you might be getting tired of the old standbys.  It’s time for a new summer bff and her name is the Southside Ransom.  This effervescently refreshing mix of gin, mint, fresh lemon, and a little simple syrup for a touch of sweetness is sure to hit the spot after a long day in the sun and will help you transition to a long night of dancing.  I had mine prepared by Justin McNeil, whose expert bartending skills and attention to detail meant a drink as beautiful as it was delicious.  Get one for yourself tonight (or maybe 3).
