Ask the MB: Spread or Point Collar?

Ask the MB: Spread or Point Collar?
Q: Spread or point collar?
—Mark


A: Do you want your face to look longer and thinner or shorter and fatter? For the former, point; for the latter, spread.

The only two people we've seen who belong wearing spread collars are Adrien Brody and the guy in Edvard Munch's The Scream.

Earlier: MB Rule: If your nose is as long and sharp as a point collar, wear a spread collar.

Negroni

The classic Negroni is simply equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. You can do better.

  • 5 parts Plymouth gin
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 1 part dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
