Look fresh as you gradually introduce your wardrobe to the new season that is just around the corner.
This autumn is not going to be anything like the ones before it. You will fully experience the transitional stage that is reserved for all of us by mother nature and you are not going to black out when the first raindrops fall. This autumn is going to have the heart of summer in it and it is going to be a real season, with it’s own wardrobe and unique touch. We know you are probably on holiday right now, so, what better time to go through the key items for late August, early September? Always with a special, Diplomatico Rum cocktail in hand, of course!
MAKE THE SUIT WORK FOR YOU
“This is not a suit he’s wearing!” Oh yeah? Look closely and you’ll see that what I chose for this post is probably more of a suited situation than any out there. What confuses you is the comfort it exhumes and the laid back attitude it carries. Well, first of all it is almost all in the way you feel in a blazer and pants. Secondly, this is not a “perfect match”. We chose to pair the blazer with an easy-breezy pair of chinos, both in the same, amazing shade of light blue, all by Scotch & Soda. A neat pair of sneakers and some jazzy sunglasses and you got yourself a hell of a crooner outfit, perfect for any occasion.
FRESH AND DEEP AT THE SAME TIME, THIS DIPLOMATICO RUM COCKTAIL WILL BECOME AN INSTANT FAVORITE!
50ml Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
10ml Yellow Chartreuse
5ml Monin Yuzu Puree syrup

Press the green apple pieces in the shaker with a pestle. Add the rest of the ingredients, together with ice, muddle and shake vigorously. Serve in a coupette glass, preferably, and decorate with green apple slices.
