Ask the MB: Cowboy Boot Protocol

Ask the MB: Cowboy Boot Protocol
Q: Hey Magnificent Bastards -- What is the MB protocol on cowboy boots?
--Evan in Maine


A: A very timely question, Evan. Last Thursday the Wall Street Journal's feature on Design Within Reach contained a picture of CEO Ray Brunner, who appeared to have grabbed whatever was within arm's reach for the photo shoot: an ill-fitting blazer and repp tie matched with cowboy boots and his age and body type looks totally ridiculous. In other words, you need the right "look" to successfully pull a pair of these off. Or on. Match yours with the five guys below to see where you fit.

  • 2 parts Germain-Robin Craft Method brandy
  • 1 part Cointreau

Lightly shake with ice, then pour into a ice-filled rocks glass. Based on your tastes, brandy choice, and strength of the lemon juice, you should adjust the Cointreau and lemon juice to find proper balance.
