If your shoes fit well, leather soles are perfectly safe and comfortable for your feet.
Yeah, way too short for you, and lengthening a jacket is flat out impossible due to how the quarters have to be cut in front. Not to mention that the button stance is already on the higher side- lengthened, it would look ridiculous. It does look nice, shouldn't be hard to sell.
They often have good musical guests.
Real brandied cherry- fresh works too, but not the grocery store 'maraschino' cherries. Those are for ice cream. Make a jar of the real thing for yourself, you'll be glad you did. Recipes are easily found online. Slice of lemon. Bitters. Sugar (I use the sugar in the raw syrup), 3 oz bourbon. Stir it together. Add ice, let it sit to chill for a minute or so. Drink.
Yeah, getting pants made by a different tailor than the jacket is extremely rare, even for the bespoke set. Wearing a corduroy suit as separates (for those that own cord suits, anyway) is extremely common.
Hmm, no cashmere jackets, but a cashmere sweater under a jacket could suit tomorrow's weather pretty well.
Replaced the gin from a Negroni recipe, that is. Most recipes I see online sub out the gin from a Negroni for bourbon, and increase the proportion. 1.5:1:1, or something like that. I just went with the straight 1:1:1 that's normal for a Negroni, but seems to be unusual for a Boulevardier.Moved on to a Gin Rickey with a bit of raspberry liqueur added now.
I'm having my first Boulevardier. Straight up replaced the gin with bourbon, didn't up the proportion (as a very opinionated cocktail book I trust* tells me to do). I very much like it. *"An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails", by Orr Shtuhl, who happens to be an acquaintance of my sister's, so buy the book!
Don't forget the navy linen with shell buttons.
