    Letter from the Editor:

    Here at Styleforum, we enjoy a stiff drink. This month, our newest contributor shares three recipes that will help take the edge off the springtime. And speaking of cocktails, isn’t it time to say goodbye to Mad Men? David tells us why it’ll be a relief to to bid farewell to Don Draper and company.

    In addition, we’ve included tips on how to succeed at wearing a blazer with denim. Once you’ve mastered that, move on to hats: we’ve got plenty of recommendations for you, hand-picked by Styleforum’s expert staff.

    Finally, don’t forget to join our conversation devoted to Alden, one of America’s most illustrious shoemakers. Share your pair in one of our “What Are You Wearing?” topics, and then kick back and relax with a browse through the Bourbon discussion.

    Enjoy the May flowers, and we’ll see you on the forums.
