The Fat Duck Review

A man should always be seen at some of the most important places all over the world. The places that take ages to get a booking or require some secret code to get into their sanctunmed walls. A gentleman, should he find himself in such a position should take stock of himself, and propose the following question:

What the hell am I going to wear?

(Well there might be a few other questions he might want to ask himself).

I also hear you say, why is he only talking to the men, why isn’t he addressing the people who really count?

Well the fact is I am talking about the men is because it was this question that I had to pose on the morning that I found myself on the receiving end of a wonderful Sunday lunch invitation

The only other thing that kinda preoccupied my thoughts was that I wondered how long it would take to get to the Fat Duck Restaurant, 16,000 km away from my home in Australia!

The Fat Duck is the temple of gastronomy tucked away in a village outside London. It is perhaps the most amazing blend of theatricality surrounding food that I have ever had the privilege to experience.

To be lucky enough to secure a booking is like wining the Lotto because it means you had beaten 3,000 other hapless fools to the punch. You heard me! 3,000 enquiries for reservations make it to the Fat Duck’s booking lines every week! The fact that three Aussies got one of the golden tickets to the Willy Wonka chocolate factory, is a testament to the sheer will of …..well u know who u are!

So onto the task at hand.. What does one wear.

Well the fact is, you can wear almost anything, because there are hardly any rules when it comes clothing anymore.
But wearing anything comes at a cost. It means that youre expecting an ordinary everyday experience, and that is not what you get from the Fat Duck.

A Gentleman should always take his A Game to an extravagant 14 course culinary spectacle like this, be aware of his surroundings and appreciate the effort that has gone into the dinning experience he has had the privilege to be invited to.

This also extends to the wardrobe he chooses to adorn his body. Will it be classic gentleman, or trendy young upstart. Will it be preppy private school boy, or 60’s inspired Don Drapper?

It matters little what style you choose, but it is important to differentiate these special events than those in your everyday life. It’s a way to remember, and put into perspective those things that rise above the everyday or the mundane. I compare it to flying in first class when all you’ve ever flown is economy or cattle class.

So if it’s a classic white shirt that you choose then make sure you take it to a cleaners to have it pressed and starched just right. It’s the little things, things that don’t cost a lot but that indicate you are making an effort. Wear your best undergarments, socks without holes, and polish or clean your shoes. If your wearing a suit then pair it with a crisp pocket square, and perhaps my thing of choice at the moment a deep red carnation.

Life throws special little gifts your way every now and again, so the last thing you want to do is ruin it by feeling like you have not made an effort. Not everyone can be dressed by a stylist or have the looks of a modern day leading man, but you can go to the hairdressers or barber and have your locks tressed and your beard shaved and face what is an unforgettable experience…..and who knows you might just be rubbing shoulders with Angelina and Brad or Bono, and if u do tell them I said hi!
