Letter from the Editor:
March, for many of us, means travel. Maybe you have a spring break, maybe your kids have a spring break, or maybe you’ve got spring break on the brain. Regardless, March is when we start to get a little antsy after the dark of winter. It’s a tricky season, too; depending on where you are, March can be sunny and warm, nippy and wet, or buried under feet of snow - sometimes all in the same week.
With that in mind, the March issue of the Styleforum Brief is a travel issue, and we have a selection of destinations and wardrobe options for you: David Isle draws on his considerable time in Naples to give you suggestions on where to eat, where to sleep, and where to shop; Andrew Yamato breaks down the perfect classic travel wardrobe as seen in It Happened One Night; and Fok tells you where to buy chocolate in San Francisco.
Wherever you’re off to this March, take a page out of Clark Gable’s playbook and do so in comfort and style - and don’t forget your selfie-stick.
