2| You can be the best-dressed man at every wedding
This week’s issue is a wedding special. Not a marquee sourcing, invite writing, in-law appeasing special, but a style special in which we’ve sought out the best stylists and tailors to bring you a comprehensive guide to dressing well for each and every type of bash. Exotic beaches, quaint churches, even Vegas casinos — if there’s a wedding going on, there’s a suit to be worn — and we have the right ones for every occasion.
3 | Calling a wedding off is easy
Especially if you’ve made friends with a stripper ahead of the ceremony — just ask Kiefer Sutherland. In our celebrity guide to getting cold feet, we’ve compiled tales of cowardice and collywobbles that span inappropriate friendships with exotic dancers to running off with cloakroom girls during dinner.
4 | In a man’s life, there are seven ages of watch
Seven. The magic number of watches a man should own. But not all at once. Instead, Anthony Teasdale charts the momentous occasions in a man’s life; occasions that each merit being marked with a new timepiece.
5 | If you’ve got a stain on your blazer, furniture polish will shift it
This and other surprisingly helpful tips and tricks can be found in this week’s issue, courtesy of The King’s Troop, the soldiers who form the ceremonial arm of the military. These men and women have to be impeccably turned out, which means hours of hard graft spent learning how best to polish, press and present themselves. Learn from the experts and look immaculate with ease.
6 | Morrissey has just got interesting again
Mozza: national treasure, tolerated curmudgeon, the greatest songwriter of his generation? The jury’s out, but one thing we are all agreed on is that his new album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, has made him interesting again. Esquire contributing editor Andrew Harrison explains why.
7 | Big hats are all about how you wear them
Yes, that’s right. Throw away your caps, discard your beanies, retire your bowlers. If you’re in the market for a hat this summer, it’s the wide brimmed, preacher style hats worn by the likes of Serge Pizzorno of Kasabian that you’ll need. The experts from Lock and Co, the world’s oldest hat shop, explain why — and impart some hat wisdom to boot (or hat).
