The gentleman’s guide to New York with Oxford & Co.
Day 1. Navigation
Make time to see the sights. Acclimate. Navigate. A gentleman is always master of his surroundings, even when he isn’t.
Day 2. Preparation
Always be prepared: Dress appropriately and enter a room with confidence. When learning someones name, repeat it out loud and shake their hand. Shake it firmly, but not too firmly. Be sure to hold eye-contact, 1, 2, 3, 4, release.
DAY 3. Exclamation
It’s show-time. Do what you do best and make your mark. Don’t hold back. Connect. After the performance drink your bourbon, neat. Repeat.
DAY 4. Collaboration
Now that you’ve spent the midnight hours drinking and playing music with new friends and colleagues, exchange cards and dream of future collaborations together. Who knows…
DAY 5. Publication
It is always good to be present. Be public. Take your show to where the people are. Take your show to Washington Square.
