26 Hours In Vegas

How does one break down a short trip to Vegas for a whisky show? 11:18 AM Order a cup of coffee and run into the West Coast Brand Ambassador for Macallan.

12:00 PM Head over to Delmonico’s with Jon Trainier, the west coast BA, for a steak lunch and some rare Glenmorangie.

1:45 PM Get the meat-sweats from devouring a massive bone-in rib eye. It was totally worth it.

The Cigar Lover’s “Martini”

Sometimes a cigar calls for a drink that keeps you warm: cognac, port, espresso. And on warm days, you might prefer a cigar-friendly drink to keep you cool like a Cuba Libre or a Cigar Lover’s “Martini.” Indeed, at some point in history, a brave soul tried combining cognac and port into a single cocktail. Our recipe:… Read more »

Kentucky Derby Party Recap

The Club held it’s fifth annual Kentucky Derby party on Saturday. To say that members and guests took their responsibility to dress up for the party seriously would be an understatement. So much seersucker, linen, madras, and as one member put it: “hats for days.” The menu featured $5 mint juleps paired with country ham… Read more »

Wingtip’s first exclusive ashtray design

If you’re a cigar lover like me, you’ll probably never forget where you were, or what you were doing, when you first laid eyes on my inaugural ashtray design. Simple. Purposeful.

This Thursday: The Return Of Survivalon

We are thrilled to host Bert Pulitzer for a Survivalon trunkshow this Thursday, April 23rd. Pulitzer is an outerwear innovator, the man who taught Ralph Lauren about the neckwear business, and the guy that first made a name for Velcro. He relaunched Survivalon in 2012, and we’re happy to see it’s return. These waterproof jackets are stylish, in traditionally muted shades as well as brash and compromising colors. They are highly functional, long-lasting, and American-made. And their client roster has included titans among men, like John Wayne.

April Whisky Bundle: A Trio From Springbank Distillery

It’s time for another whisky bundle to add to your growing collection of amazing gold liquid at your home bar. This month Kyle and I put together a fun little ditty from the region of Campbeltown. Tucked away in the South West Corner of Scotland, Campbeltown used to be home to as many as 34 distilleries. Now there are only two left, and they produce some very exciting whiskies indeed. The whiskies in this month’s bundle all come from one distillery; two are homages to closed distilleries, and the other is one of our all-time favorite daily drams. These three bottles would normally retail together for $226.97, but purchased as a bundle, we’re offering them for just $190. Without further ado, our April Whisky Bundle of Joy, featuring Springbank Distillery.

    EyeBobs Readers At City Lights Bookstore [PHOTOS]

    The beat generation was raised at a bookstore, just a stone’s throw from Wingtip, on a jagged block of Columbus Avenue, nestled between San Francisco’s North Beach and Chinatown districts. City Lights Bookstore was opened in 1953, the brainchild of Peter D. Martin, but it was co-founder Lawrence Ferlinghetti who turned it into a place where poets could read and publish works that weren’t necessarily “fit to print,” in the established sense.

    Q&A: Introducing Hydrogen Leather Shoes

    As manager of San Francisco’s Hotel des Arts, Hero Nakatani took the meaning of “hotel art” to a new dimension, offering the rooms as blank canvases for artists to create modern, arresting visuals that made guests forget all about dull seaside landscapes and generic vistas. Nakatani then took on the footwear business, seeking to bridge the chasm between comfortable, urbane sneakers and sophisticated, but unforgiving oxfords. The result was Nakatani’s Hydrogen-1 shoes, a name that relates how these shoes are elemental, essential, and classically simple. Below, we talk with Hydrogen founder Hero Nakatani about his journey.

    The Harrington style dates back to the 1930s, but its popularity in pop culture was cemented in the 60s by scooting swarms of mods and titans of cool, including Steve McQueen, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Ryan O’Neal. Wait, Ryan O’Neal?

    The Skeptical Shopper’s Guide To Saint Crispin’s Shoes

    Next week, St. Crispin’s visits Wingtip for a three-day trunk show. We adore these shoes, and fell that they represent an investment-caliber value, even at their steep price tag. But we know some readers may get light-headed over the thought of parting with $1700 for a pair of shoes. So, here we embody the “Skeptical Shopper,” and volley the hard questions to our Bespoke Advisors Michael Alzona and Bruce Zuckerman:
