Quinn + Tonik Vol. 31

 
Transformation is the core of what we do. We change context. Making wrappers for characters that warp the space time continuum; curving subjective perception into the reality we seek to project. Transforming the wearer’s relationship with the world he or she interacts with. The book, after all, is judged by its cover. So if you can adapt the cover to your benefit, magical things happen. It has also been shown that not only is other people’s perception altered, but also your own.
 
Perfecting this type of magic is no mean feat. Luckily we have a range of tools to help us. From colors and textures, to patterns and trims. We may occasionally stitch a penny in. Not just for good luck. But for good drape.
 
As with all great battles, you need a general with experience who understands nuance and calibration. Which is why you need DQ. Make a bespoke appointment today.
 
With that said, and no further ado, read from the bottom up, grab that cocktail, and enjoy this week's cinematographic and bibliophilic recommendations.

watch: catch me if you can

If ever there were a movie which portrays the art of altering perception with nuance, this could be it. A play on the true story of Frank Abignail Jr., "Paperhanger" extraordinaire. A man who understood that how people perceive you can often be more important than how you perceive yourself. Dive into the milk, churn the butter, and climb out with a new perspective on life.

read: words like loaded pistols

 

Of course a well dressed man can achieve things that are beyond the reach of mere mortals. But arm him with some training in the fine art of rhetoric and he becomes an almost unstoppable force. The pen is, indeed, mightier than the sword.

But when it isn’t, just make sure you are wearing one of your DQ movie gun ties...

cocktail: speaking of catch me if you can

 
"As anyone who’s ever hustled for a living (whether booze or anything else) understands all too well, the law of supply and demand shows no mercy. No matter what you feel about the so-called “Bourbon boom” it’s not making life any easier for guys like us."
- Nicolas Palazzi, "The Indiana Jones of Spirits"
Catch some of this while you can. It's simply magnificent. Straight. One cube. However you like it.

“the direct route isn’t always the best one” We've had a lot of time to think about this as we've just driven across Africa in a car that averages 50mph on a good day. 14 hours of trundling along through the middle of nowhere gives time for reflection. Time to think about how lucky [...]

HAPPY LABOR DAY. Apparently we're not supposed to wear white hereafter. But no one seems to be able to explain why. When asked by our buddy Danny Agnew at Inside Hook, "What do you think of the 'no white pants after Labor Day' rule? For it? Against it? [...]
