Thorstein Veblen
Editor's Note: We've never fully bought into all of Thorstein Veblen's ideas regarding conspicuous consumption, but if there's one thing the man taught us, it's this: Early 20th century sociologists know a thing or two about artful dishevelment, and so do their 21st century descendents. Herewith, a letter from an MB reader and sociologist who points out a few facts all MBs and aspiring MBs should keep in mind. Of course, if you're still stumped about what color lenses to get for your white sunglasses, don't be afraid to write for advice. That's what we're here for.

RE: MB being a shaving/workout American Taliban

As an honest to god sociology professor, let me field this one. The nervous crowd is nervous because they have yet to realize one of the most important parts of being an MB is individuality. You can't be an MB by simply copying other MBs, you've got to figure out what works for you personally, given your personality, your build, and your budget.

It's right there in the header - the site is a helper, a friend, and an advisor. It is not a stone tablet and it is not the Pope (obviously; the Pope is totally trying too hard -- TTH). Indeed, readers who think their every move has to be MB.com approved should check the footer, too. Sometimes you gotta spread your wings and fly around outside the nest, you know?

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
