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 »
We are very excited for you to meet Mr. Mark Pomerantz, a menswear designer who represents the latest addition to our collection of bespoke offerings. His line of suits and coats is crafted from gorgeous fabrics. What we really love about Mr. Pomerantz’ work is the incredible amount of attention he focuses on embellishments and construction details.

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 »
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. Built-in “social” integration. How could no one have already thought of it? I don’t know. A crystal ashtray for a single cigar that features an accurate,… Read more »
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.
For years, Davek has been the solution for people sick of umbrellas that buckle and flip inside out at the slightest hint of a breeze. Now Davek has solved our final umbrella quandary–how not to lose it. Davek’s Alert Umbrella is about to conclude a round of funding on Kickstarter, and, from the looks of… Read more »
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.
There’s something in the air today. Smells like spring. Fresh cut grass, white ash, and worn leather. Baseball season is here. And we have the authentic, accessories for all spectators and man cave denizens.
We are thrilled to invite you to this Friday’s Valhalla Dinner, hosted by Highland Park’s Brand Ambassador, Martin Daraz.
Let’s just say, this is a BIG deal for scotch drinkers and foodies, alike.
For this one special night, eat like valkyries, gods and goddesses as we toast to Thor, Loki, Freya and Odin, the four rare expressions of the Highland Park Valhalla Collection. In fact, three of these expressions are no longer available for purchase, making this an extraordinary opportunity to be in the presence of greatness.
Spring TV Style Report
Happy New Year! Before you protest, let me explain: If you’re a TV junkie like me, the New Year doesn’t really start until the Spring TV season debuts. So, by my calendar I’m still within the period where it’s not awkward to say, heartily, “Happy New Year!”
At this time of the season, new shows make their first appearances, and old shows return to finish up their season’s run. But I won’t bore you with what to watch and what to skip, we’re here to look at the best and worst dressed characters so far this season.Posted on January 26, 2015 by Tim Niven

Happy Life Day
Next year at this time, I’ll be in a movie theater watching “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for the 15th time (as long as it’s not some Phantom Menace fiasco, in which case I will have seen it only 12 times, max). But this year, with the theaters all-but-shuttered, it’s time to stay home and celebrate Life Day in the spirit of the Star Wars Holiday Special.Posted on December 22, 2014 by Tim Niven

Take A Swipe Outta Frostbite With Dents Touchscreen Gloves
When it’s cold enough to wear gloves, it’s too cold to take one off to answer the phone, check the map, or take a picture. It’s not only frigidly inconvenient, but the more times you take your gloves off, the more likely you are to lose one–or, if you’re lucky, drop one in a gutter teeming with slush.Posted on December 18, 2014 by davidmacfaddenelliott

Wingtip outfits the top half of the Pacific Boyschoir
Four and a half years ago, after first opening the Club, we approached our first holiday season and needed some theme or excuse for a holiday party. After some brainstorming and googling, we decided to honor Frank Sinatra’s birthday of December 12th. Each year, the party has gotten bigger and better with this year’s live entertainment featuring a phenomenal Sinatra impersonator, a DJ, and the three-time Grammy award winning Pacific Boychoir Academy.Posted on December 14, 2014 by Ami
Holiday Gift Guide (Don’t Take Our Word For It)
We like to think of ourselves as a shop for the gentleman who has everything, or maybe as the shop for the guy who’s hard to shop for. So it’s no surprise that many of our favorite items show up in newspaper and magazine gift guides each year. Here are some recent listings:Posted on December 12, 2014 by davidmacfaddenelliott
