Inspired by warmer weather, Obama’s visit to Cuba, and the potential to actually buy the one and only Havana Club in the USA in the not too distant future.

    I’m digging everything about this look. I haven’t owned a Stacey Adams shoes in years. How’s the quality? I do own a pair of JCP Stafford Deacon boots and they’re great for the price. Also that weekender bag looks great, too!

    Ugh. Now I have to buy all of this for spring wedding season. I’ve been looking for an excuse to pick up these boots though.

      I’ve had mine for two years now. They’re a great buy, especially for the price.

    Great similar shoe you can get by Steve Madden Swanky, they are a wing tip boot, but give the same look, exact same color. And, you can get them on 6pm for $39.99 right now

    I was looking at this outfit and I thought it looked really sharp. Then I realized that I pretty much have everything on the list so I guess I know what I’m wearing to work tomorrow. I just got that H&M blazer on sale for $29.99 too.

      Damn that’s one hell of a deal for that blazer. I’m sorry I missed that!

    Ok… I’ll be the one to ask. Have we all turned the corner on this whole “northern lights” rule or is it still a thing?

    Personally, I think this is on point.

      I’m pretty sure we have. This look was partially inspired by Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis from the original Ocean’s 11. If it works for them then it works for me!

      Awesome, it’ll lead to more commissions! 🙂

    Outstanding getup, love it. Having trouble finding the shoes here in the UK though – would something like these work? (Loake Burford) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Loake-Burford-Rubber-Sole-Brogue/dp/B00N42K8FS?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_2&smid=A2S2SASZKLIWD8

    Bizarre. I’m glad I waited a day before trying to purchase these because most of the items suddenly went on sale for the next couple days. Just saved a total of $100 on the getup. 🙂 Some Easter luck!

    Bacardi is real rum bro, if you buy the cheap white rum then that is on you, but they have quality dark rum light years ahead of Havana Club. Just because it’s Cuban doesn’t make it better.

      Man, I saw this article on Pinterest and had to come on here to defend Bacardi. If you don’t like Bacardi, that’s one thing, but don’t call it a “ripoff”. Folks think that just because something is made in Cuba that it is automatically high-rating. Not true. Same for cigars.

      Some of the best cigars in the world are made by Cuban families in Central America (Honduras, and Nicaragua.)

      (BTW, I bought a bottle of Havana Club añejo 7 años earlier this year in Santiago, and I didn’t like it at all as a sipping rum. It’s strictly a rum & Coke example.)

        This is referring only to the “Havana Club” name trademark dispute, Bacardi took on the name after the embargo started, selling a product called “Havana Club” in the US that was not the original. The US trademark office actually just revoked Bacardi’s right to use the name.

          Understood.

          You must see my point that the way that the article was worded omitted any side notes. Most folks don’t know the behind-the-scenes players (Bacardi, Arechabala family, Pernod Ricard, and the Cuban gov’t.,) in that whole ordeal, so they will just see the above comment as a Cuba vs. The World comparison. That’s why I threw in the cigar reference – the same thing happens in that scene.

    Would black jeans work in place of the brown chinos? That’s what I thought they were at first glance… Would save me spending so much cash!

      Absolutely, it’d be a bit more urban but a great look.

    Dang, seems like everytime I go to buy something from here, it’s always sold out. Just tried to find that blazer but no luck. Is there a window on some of this stuff? When do you post the getup, perhaps if I knew that I could be ready next time. Thanks.

    Hey, you guys are absolutely insane calling Bacardi rum a “Puerto Rican Ripoff”. Learn your history. Ron Bacardi is the original Cuban rum heavyweight. Havana Club didn’t appear until after the revolution.

    Most of their product (Havana Club, Ron Santiago, etc.) is distilled and aged in Bacardi’s old rum-making infrastructure in Cuba. I mean, what does that say about Bacardi’s knowledge on rum making?

    C’mon, now.

    Great getup! I’m living in Australia so some of the brands/stores aren’t avilable over here. However I’ve managed to recreate a similar look as closely as possible with a H&M jacket in grey (I picked up on special for $30!), some slim fit chinos in a dark khaki and shirt/shoes/tie/belt I already had.

    I’m liking it a lot. Thanks for the tips, I really enjoy these articles.

    Cheers
