A True Gentleman

We've teamed up w/ Tim over at A True Gentleman to create a post on food and fashion. Check out Tim's essentials for dress when entertaining at home, and be sure and read my post, including 4 new recipes for that special evening. Enjoy!

From Tim:

As to dressing appropriately, it does not need to be formal, but your outfit should reflect that you’ve put some thought into it.

Let’s start with the basics from the top and work our way down.

To start, a nice button down shirt is imperative, as this will essentially anchor your whole ensemble. Whether you put a sweater over top, or a blazer, the shirt is the key component. Now, how you’ll choose your shirt is dependent upon your mood, or simply what you have in your closet. A safe bet is a basic blue or white oxford; it is classic, simple and really good looking.
As for pants, I would suggest a nice pair of khakis, grey slacks, or a pair of dark blue jeans. These always pair nicely with an oxford shirt. Just make sure what you choose is comfortable for moving around in, as you will be entertaining.

Lastly, the shoes are also a key component. Not only should your shoes be comfortable, but tie together your ensemble. The shoes are like the conclusion to a story, the period at the end of a sentence; ultimately the shoes will be the one piece that can make or break an outfit. Therefore your choice depending on what you’ve selected should not be sneakers or boots. Your shoes should have an element of dressiness; therefore, with what I’ve selected above, an accompanying shoe could be a nice driving shoe, or a loafer.

Now that we have the basics down, let’s add some flare. Start with adding a neck tie/bow tie. This will dress up the outfit and add some pop to the blank canvas we’ve already created. This is completely optional and preference is dependent upon personal style. While on the topic of flare, a navy blue blazer adds an element of interest. The beauty of the navy blazer is that it virtually goes together with anything and would complete this outfit. If you don’t have a blazer, you can always substitute with a cardigan or sweater over top to create the same effect. If you’re thinking blazer, try a pocket square. Really adds an element of class.

As for a finishing touch, make sure you smell good. Make sure your cologne doesn’t trump the smell of food.

In concluding, enjoy yourself and have fun with your outfit.

Have Her Over For Dinner

Let’s face it, today we are inundated with articles about cooking, food, and wine in almost every part of our lives. From The Wall Street Journal to Playboy Magazine, you’d be hard pressed not to find a commentary related to the subject of food. At a time when I’m trying to figure out my best financial opportunities or determine which girl of the SEC is the best looking, why am I being told how to cook something? The simple answer is women. Don’t get me wrong, a quick glance at any men’s magazine will always yield the same redundant taglines; “Lose your Gut,” “1001 Financial Solutions,” or “Score your Dream Job” on the cover. However, by now the majority of writers have exhausted the subjects of health, wealth, and power as a means to attract women, and they realize that cooking is just another avenue that they can use to appeal to the wants and needs of their readers. Don’t trust me? Take a stroll through the magazine aisle at your local grocery store, and you might find that even Field and Stream has gone haute-cuisine on your latest hunt. Confused by the last sentence? Good, this book is for you.
