add some flair to your game

Spring. When our thoughts turn to getting back outdoors; when we feel those first warm breezes that awaken in our mind all that is possible once again, all that we will achieve in the months ahead. Spring. When all we want to do is make like Clint Eastwood on Rome’s Via Veneto in 1965 and get on our board and ride, ride, ride, and just leave the world turning its head as it watches us—a man owning the street, forging his own path. For more men with flair, turn to page 48 of The Code.Live like a king: Enter for a chance to win a trip for two to the premiere of Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, including airfare, a two-night hotel stay, and $500 cash.

the complex cult whiskey you’ll want to drink every day is back

As its name implies, this limited-edition bottling from Utah’s High West, one of the more innovative craft distillers in the country, is a blend of straight bourbon and rye whiskies (aged ten to fourteen years). The result is dynamic yet smooth: You get the spice and character of the former and the I-can-sip-this-all-damn-night ease of the latter. It has appeared every spring since 2013 and disappears quickly, so if you spot it, stock up.High West Distillery Bourye, $80; ■…

the mazda miata goes full targa

The Miata is the world’s best-selling two-seat roadster, but still: Either you’re a Miata guy or it’s too cute for your tastes. If you’ve never been charmed by one, the new MX-5 RF may change that. When its retractable fastback roof is up, you get a car with a uniquely aggressive, sporty look. Press a button and in thirteen seconds, the metal roof tucks into the rear of the car, giving you a beach-ready ride.From $32,430; ■…

wild hair

(photograph: Alexei Hay)In addition to feelings, interior decorating, and The Crown, one of the most obvious of the many subjects modern man cares a lot about but rarely if ever discusses openly is his hair. Consider for a moment how five-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, who appears to have worn his more ways than Lady Gaga, is largely mum on the subject. Or recall the recent news that François Hollande was found to be spending eleven thousand dollars (eleven thousand dollars!) a month (a month!) on his clip-on helmet of Lego locks. Before that, le silence.These days, in fact, the arenas of sports and politics surprisingly outshine almost all other realms of male vanity, fashion and Hollywood included. Colin Kaepernick’s protest was also cloaked in silence, for instance, but…

yes, this is healthy

the Big Bite A Cultural Guide to Just Enough of EverythingI smeared a thick coat of butter on a chewy slab of bread. In front of me was a bowl of hot broth, all glossy with melted bone marrow. I dunked the bread into the broth, curious about how the marrow and the butter would intermingle. Off to the side waited a plate of tartare; it had cheddar mixed in with the beef. A forkful of raw meat and sharp cheese on top of buttered sourdough? Count me in. Fatty and Conbloody, it was a repast worthy of a warrior on Game of Thrones. And I felt no guilt whatsoever, because this, I was told, also qualified as health food.My dinner took place at Hearth, a restaurant that has occupied…
