BIG THINGS AHEAD

Let’s get this year started off right. Rob Giardinelli and the newly launched SuccessWithStyle.com leads the way on the road to cool, cooler and coolest.

NECK IN NECK

Let’s face it:  The turtleneck sweater is the guy-on-the-go’s best friend. From throwing it on with a blazer or topcoat and jeans, or with a suit, a colored cashmere selection (or any good wool) it’s always perfect.

TROPICAL ADVENTURE

Academy Award©-winning Austinite Matthew McConaughey stars with Anne Hathaway in winter’s widely anticipated thriller, Serenity. The action-packed adventure has healthy doses of passion, murder and money. Why wouldn’t it? Opening January 25 in theaters everywhere.

PLEASURE OF LEATHER

Hip brand Leatherology is the go-to insider’s luggage resource. When you’re globe-hopping, it’s got to be in style. So why not make a statement, like this Kessler duffel bag in navy blue with a monogram to show the world your good taste? $300. At Leatherology.com

ITALIAN STALLION

Trussardi, an Italian fashion house, was founded in 1911. It began as a leather glove manufacturer, expanded to additional leather goods in the and is now finally fragrance. Smells like Roma to us. $97. At Lord & Taylor

GIN DANDY

Zephyr Gin isn’t your grandfather’s gin. Or, your father’s. It’s crisp, with subtle nouveau botanicals and a smooth finish. Zephyr’s added influence of elderberry and elderflower creates a modern, more pleasing 80-proof ultra-premium gin made for the more adventurous palate. At ZephyrGin.com

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

With the mild winter temperatures here, why not take a new power yoga class that happens outdoors? Goats optional. You’ll commune with nature, clear your head and likely extend your life by stretching to the skies.
