The Weekender

Hemingway. Flasks. Mutiny...

Every weekend has its day.

It’s a Sale. Sales Are Great.
BROWN OUT

It’s a Sale. Sales Are Great.

Orlebar Brown makes clothing. Italian-cotton chinos and gingham check button-downs. Stuff like that. It’s all rather handsome. It’s all rather 20% off, too. The whole site... just hop on there and grab some new pants or whatever. Everyone loves a good pant.

Use These to Keep You Warm
BLANKET STATEMENT

Use These to Keep You Warm

Hey, you look like you could use a blanket. You do. We’re somehow watching you and we’ve somehow determined that you could use a blanket. These colorful new wool ones from Pendleton should do. They’re all named after national parks. Go for Glacier. It’s got a bear on it.

Hemingway, Now Your Cocktail Coach
IN ERNEST

Hemingway, Now Your Cocktail Coach

Hemingway. Now there’s a guy who knew his way around a Sazerac. So it’s only right that someone just wrote a cocktail book filled with drink recipes and quaff-centric anecdotes inspired by the characters in his novels. Think Frederic Henry’s martini from A Farewell to Arms. And then think drinking it.

A New Online House of Dapper
MUTINOUS BOUNTY

A New Online House of Dapper

There’s a little shop in DC called Mutiny. All kinds of rugged jackets from Grown & Sewn and ties from Otis James in there. Bunch of denim and copper flasks, too. Which is great if you live in DC. Or have the Internet. Yep, they just launched an online shop. Proceed.

How to Cook Like a Spanish God
NO BULLI

How to Cook Like a Spanish God

You like to think you know your way around the kitchen. And maybe you do. But a certain legendary chef (Ferran Adrià) of a certain legendary restaurant (elBulli) just came out with an iPad and Android app complete with step-by-step recipes for 31 three-course meals. So... maybe go that route next time.
