bespoke: the real deal

  
WHILE A BESPOKE SUIT FROM DUNCAN QUINN IS STILL A SUIT, IT'S MORE THAN THAT. IT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THE WORLD. 
    
80% of communication has been shown to be non-verbal.
 
Think about that for a second. Eighty-percent of what you say does not come out of your mouth. And is not enunciated by your thoughts becoming words. It is enunciated by what you wear and how you look.. and act. 
 
And so, although we make suits, we are not your average suit maker. It's not just about taking measurements and you choosing your cloth. It's about achieving a mission. Maximizing "you" for the challenges you will be faced with in life. Whether by dialing up or down the volume of the message the suit speaks. More understated, less understated, more elegant, less elegant, more formal, less formal. Adding or deducting small signals which people will perceive. 
 
Lets work together to make sure it's the message you want it to be.

read: mitochondria and the future of medicine

In the spirit of forever continuing our education here's a fascinating book DQ just read. The nuts and bolts of how the incredible human machine works are shrouded in heavy mist. Even to those who have dedicated their lives to divining its secrets.
 
This approachable book distills complexity into simplicity, and explains in broad terms why a lack of certain key nutritional elements can gum up the works. Leading to internal power failure. And fritzing numerous other systems in the process, which then present as disease.
 
If you have been following the big push by the supplements industry to take NAD+, know anything about Peter AttiaDavid Sinclair, or anything to do with slowing down the onset of disease this will make the picture come into focus.
 
Why do we care? and what does this have to do with suits? you may ask. Well, we need clients for a start, so it helps if they live long and healthy lives. And secondly our life is a lot easier if you are healthy, slim, and svelt. All things that come more naturally when all systems are firing at 100%.
 
Pick it up, have a read, and learn how your own internal combustion engines work.

cocktail: hampden rum punch

  
Hampden Rum.
 
This Jamaican pot-still rum will blow your God damned doors off.
 
With a higher polyphenolic content than anything else on the planet, and whiffs of bananas and caramel before you even get it close to your glass, it is insanely good. 
 
The stuff of legend.
 
Never sold in the USA until recently, a certain Nicolas Palazzi of PM Spirits fame explained to us just how epic this juice from Maison Velier is. So if you want to enjoy something out of this galaxy in terms of taste profile look no further than this. Both to sip, and to cocktail.
 
Here's a classic rum punch, Hampden style:
 
INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 oz Hampden Estate Overproof Rum (if you’re not feeling as adventurous, the standard proof version stands in beautifully)
3/4 oz Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur
1/4 oz Allspice Dram (St. Elizabeth)
3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3-4 dashes Bittercube Jamaican No. 1 Bitters
 
DIRECTIONS
Shake it all with lots of ice and open pour into an old fashioned glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
 
Bottoms up!
