A cocktail moment with Teo Van Den Broeke Style Director, “Esquire”, “Deputy Editor”, “Big Black Book”

STYLE ADVICE

  • Could you give three evening dress codes do’s and don’ts ?  

Never wear a novelty tie, bow tie or cummerbund; always polish your shoes – and never miss the edge of the soles, nothing looks scruffier than scuffs; Iron your shirt (arms, back and all). It sounds obvious, but you’d be amazed by how many people fail at this most simple of tasks.

  • What is your personal tip ?

With evening wear always opt for midnight blue over black – black suits tend to fade to green over time, whereas midnight blue will always look elegant.

  • Which New Retro would you wear and with what ?

Rose gold on black strap – I love this model

PLACES

  • Which are your three favourite cocktail bars (in your city) ?

I love Lounge Bohemia in East London – the cocktails are crazy and you can only get in by booking in advance.  For something a little more refined I love the bar at The Connaught, the martinis are second to none. The Blind Pig in Soho is very near to my office and is great for a post-work negroni and some delicious Chiparones.

  • Which are your three favourite cocktail bars (worldwide) ?

Schillers in Downtown New York is great – you couldn’t be anywhere else in the world but The Big Apple when you’re in Schillers. There’s a little bar in Chueca in Madrid which I can’t remember the name of, but they do a mean (and very strong) gin & tonic. It’s very near the metro station.  Nothing beats Harry’s bar in Florence – the one in Venice isn’t half bad either.
