WHISKEY WITH DAPPER JACK
Posted on November 27 2018
In our first edition of Whiskey With... we introduce the king of floral Dapper Jack of Sydney.
A man who knows how accessories can tastefully compliment the everyday work suit, the evening soiree outfit and the weekend ensemble. Someone who also effortlessly balances the corporate look with a dash of flair to keep things interesting.
We recently shared a glass of McHenry single malt at The Baxter Inn to get a closer look at what inspires this modern gent.

How Did You Get Into Fashion
Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) in Crazy, Stupid, Love was the first one to show me that men can be fashionable too. I instantly fell in love with his style and I've been keeping that image in my mind ever since.
Top Three Accessories
Smart looking spectacles, a nice watch and a statement signet ring.
What Do You Love About Our Dapper Socks
The thing I love about The Dapper Collection is the perfect blend of aesthetics, and functionality. They have bright colours and intricate designs which are guaranteed to pop and catch someone’s eye. It’s a simple way to quietly show a bit of personality and have some fun in the corporate world.
What About Their Quality
They have the perfect thickness, allowing some breeze and breathability to come through and keep your feet from overheating. From the packaging, to the product itself, you can tell no stone has gone un-turned, and no corner has been cut in this pursuit of excellence.
What's Your Secret To Making The Suit Look Great
My small secret to make a suit look great; everyone knows the suit needs to be snug around the body to create the V look. But a small trick which will go a long way in helping a suit look extra sharp is this; when your arms are straight flat at your sides, ask your tailor to shorten to the suit sleeves so that your shirt sleeve sticks out half an inch when relaxed. This is a small, subtle change that will go a long away and making a visually appealing difference to your suit.
Favourite Beverage For A Gentleman’s Gathering
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch Whiskey.
