Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Secret Service was undoubtedly one our favorite movies of the past few years, and will definitely go down as one of the funniest and most dapper spy movies to hit the silver screen. But the sense of dress didn't stop there as it would in most movies, it extended beyond the film into a real clothing line managed by Mr Porter and made in collaboration with the best tailors and craftsmen from around the world. You can check it out here.

So we were over the moon to hear that a 2nd installment of Kingsman will be coming out late September, titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and starring Jeff Bridges, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong. Until then, here is the trailer for the new movie, and we have to say, it does look epic.

The Art of Japanese Mixology

Never have I, in my nearly 3 decades of international traveling, come across a more dedicated and obsessive people than the Japanese. They are known to devote their full efforts and attention to any task no matter how menial or mundane, no matter how cheap or expensive. You could stumble into a Matsuya in Tokyo (a Japanese fast food franchise) and order a $3 Gyudon (beef bowl over rice) from the vending machine, and expect that the chefs will devote as much dedication and care into your bowl as if they were making it for their own family.

Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the field of mixology. When you order a Japanese cocktail from any of their world renowned bars, know that the cocktail was made with the utmost care and precision, made as a special experience just for you. The Way of the Cocktail is a great mini-documentary that interviews some of the best bartenders in the worlds and describes the truly intricate ways of a Japanese master mixologist.
