All the Cocktail Recipes You Need this Summer

2-minute read

In light of our Summer 2016 Collection launch (hello, White Cheetah!) we asked sommelier Sasha McCauley to create five easy-breezy custom cocktails inspired by our newest styles and leathers.
Using handcrafted lines like The Botanist Gin, Remy VSOP, Cointreau, Patrón and Elephant Island, and a few lemon twists, mix these fresh, crisp, delicious concoctions after work, and sip them on the patio in the sunshine--'til late.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
