I work in a large, corporate tech firm in the city, and they have recently introduced Summer Fridays. I’m hoping to get a promotion soon, and I want to ensure that I look professional at all times, while remaining social and accessible to the rest of my team. Any suggestions? Can you recommend any “Summer Friday”–appropriate blazers? And are sandals appropriate in an office if they are leather?Single-breasted navy blazers are versatile, and you can dress them up or down with your choice of trouser. We’ve been seeing nice sport jackets in railroad engineer fabric or preppy pincord. We’re also seeing more seersucker and pincord suits, in a wider range of colors and sold as separates, so a single suit can create multiple options that don’t involve a matching jacket.…

drink locally

The farm-to-table movement in high-end restaurants may be old hat by now, but its corollary in craft spirits is just getting started. “Barn-tobottle” whiskeys well worth sipping are springing up across the country, from New England to the High West. The crucial difference between these down-home liquors and the bigger brands is a focus on local ingredients and production, which tend to yield bottles with a bit more soul. Vermont’s WhistlePig is one of the very few outfits to do the entire process in one place, from harvesting the rye to distilling, aging and bottling the final product. They even make their own whiskey barrels from oak trees felled right on the farm. This lends the elixir and others of its ilk something akin to terroir, that taste of the…

Yasmeen GhauriPhotographer Sante D’Orazio is a rare breed, a first-generation Italian-American from pre-gentrified Brooklyn. Although he was as American as any kid of his generation, the aura of Europe still clung to him. His mom was an opera singer at La Scala, his dad a champion cyclist. While his friends thought about making money, Sante thought about art, which he studied at Brooklyn College, the Brooklyn Museum and as the assistant of painter Philip Pearlstein.One day he met a neighbor named Lou Bernstein, an art photographer in the manner of Edward Steichen whose work hangs in many museums including MoMA. Bernstein gave D’Orazio a Pentax and taught him photography by teaching him to see, and how to be in the moment.His great eye and his fluent Italian took him to…

shock value

From carbon-fiber bodywork to high-performance Öhlins suspension, the Sora by Lito has all the trimmings you’d expect from an exotic, six-figure motorcycle—except for an engine. The Sora is the most luxurious all-electric motorcycle on the market, an expanding field that now includes speed demons like the Zero SR and the Lightning LS-218. But where other electric bikes are remarkable, the Sora is extraordinary.Hand-built in Quebec, the bike has a liquidcooled AC induction electric motor with 66 lb-ft of torque that is fully available the moment your hand twitches. You fling forward instantaneously, doing zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds, quicker than a Porsche 718 Cayman. The motor pulls its energy from a lithium-ion battery pack mounted under the faux fuel tank and sends power through a continuously variable transmission,…

King Tut had his very own meteorite dagger, and modern moguls can now own a pair of .45 caliber Colt 1911 pistols crafted from four-billion-year-old Gibeon meteorite, thanks to Cabot Guns, a collector-class firearms atelier in Pennsylvania. Acid etching, aerospace construction, electron-beam welding and a Widmanstätten pattern top off the design of the Big Bang pistol set, which pairs the rough-hewn texture of prehistoric space rock—originally discovered in Namibia in the 1830s—with infallible modern precision. According to founder and president Robert Bianchin, “The guns transcend the obviousness of the objects themselves to cross the Rubicon between a firearm and art. Some lucky bastard is going to own these.” For that privilege, the price has been set at an astronomical $4.5 million, making these Cabot special editions the most expensive pistols…
