this fall, our men’s design team suggests that you…
Go hiking in the Catskills.
Learn to build a fire (sit, stoke, sit some more…).
Listen to Stranger Ballet by the Poison Control Center.
Make pumpkin pie (with this recipe).
Get spooked at a haunted house (local favorite: the ghost tours at The Merchant’s House Museum).
Mull wine (boil 1 c. sugar, ½ grated lemon rind, 18 cloves, 5 cinnamon sticks, 2 qt. Burgundy and 1 c. boiling water. Strain and serve hot).
Peep (leaf peeping, that is)—head north for fall foliage (we’re partial to Manchester, Vermont).
Pick your own apples at Applecrest Farms in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire.
Get lost in the corn maze at Queens County Farm Museum (and try to spot the farmer who moonlighted as a one-time J.Crew model).
Drive up the Hudson with the windows (and top) down on a cold, sunny day.
Sip a good Irish single malt (the peatier, the better).
Eat apple scones at Tivoli Bakery.
