Wild, Wild Best
Everything That Was Important in 2013, Pt. 2

Cue “Auld Lang Syne.” Invest heavily in noisemakers and champagne. The year is almost over. But before it’s completely donezo, have a gander at some of what made it so damn special. (Think of it as part 253 in our 254-part series on The Best Things of 2013.)

UD - Three New Ways to Be Smashing

YOU SCORED SOME DROP-DEAD HANDSOMENESS

Three New Ways to Be Smashing

On a blustery day in March, Carson Street Clothiers plied you with scotch and introduced you to a near-crippling sport-coat addiction. Later, Schott opened a storefront for your leather-jacket needs, a mere 100 years after they went into business. And the Armoury taught you what it was to truly love... a shoe.
UD - Three Roads Out of Town

YOU GOT OUT OF DODGE

Three Roads Out of Town

This year, all roads pointed to... not here. The Graham & Co. gave you a rustic Brooklyn away from Brooklyn. Playland Motel became the answer to the question “What the hell do we do in Rockaway?” And HQ Beach Club continued the solemn tradition of the AC pool party.
UD - ManuelRacim and Proper Cloth

YOU GOT THAT SHIRT TO FIT JUST RIGHT

ManuelRacim and Proper Cloth

They say if the shirt fits, wear it. Actually, no—they say that about shoes. But still: it works. Anyway, the gentlemen of ManuelRacim and Proper Cloth made it their lives’ work to see that your Eton-collar gingham oxford is perfect in every way. Swell guys, those.
UD - The New Hotels on the Block

YOU STAYCATIONED

The New Hotels on the Block

The Marlton. The Jade. One’s a new Greenwich Village hotel with a killer bar and a date-worthy restaurant. And the other’s... pretty much the same thing. Meanwhile, in Chelsea, the High Line opened in an old seminary next to a park we can’t remember the name of.

YOU SURVIVED IN STYLE

Best Made Co.

You don’t need an axe. You probably never will. Which is not to say that you wouldn’t like to have one. One handmade and painted by the good folks at Best Made. Who have also hooked you up with some of your more perfect T-shirts, jackets and wooden rockets. Again, not about need.
411:
Best Made Co., 36 White St (near Church), 646-478-7092

YOU STOOD AT THE FOREFRONT OF BUBBLY DELIVERY

Sky Is the Limit

For a few glorious weekends last summer, the world was a place where you could sit by the beach, enjoy a nice brunch and have a man drop from the sky with a bottle of champagne and deliver it to you in a beach parade. Hamptons ’14 should be great.

Sky Is the Limit, available at Day & Night Hamptons at Gurney’s Inn, 290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk, 212-201-1222
UD - Mercedes Club and Golf & Body NYC

YOU CHISELED YOURSELF INTO PERFECT FORM

Mercedes Club and Golf & Body NYC

Your January 2013 resolutions: the less said, the better. But we suspect you gave it a go with some Gleason’s boxing at Mercedes Club and some intensive swing-coaching at Golf & Body. And if not, hey, there’s 2014...
