After receiving the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize in Norway, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter delivered his Nobel Lecture. In his speech, President Carter said: “The bond of our common humanity is stronger than the divisiveness of our fears and prejudices. God gives us the capacity for choice. We can choose to alleviate suffering. We can choose to work together for peace. We can make these changes – and we must.” There is no more important time than now to read, and reflect, on these words.
 
How much trauma can we take? I feel as if everywhere l look there is bad news, whether it’s Covid-19 numbers rising, businesses closing, police brutality and violent protestors, the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.  Sometimes it makes it difficult to want to persevere or to keep at a goal, to see the best in people or a situation, or put one foot in front of the other. And yet, we must keep going. We are at a crucial turning point in history, and we can change the path we are on. We must take personal responsibility and accountability (Wear a mask! Vote!), and make choices that take into account the needs of our neighbours and the larger community, as well as our own. It’s not always just about us.
 
At Entourage, it has always been our goal to both work and surround ourselves with people we believe in, and with people we feel share values similar to our own. One of the reasons I love creating these newsletters is because it’s a chance to share the stories of the amazing people and brands we have the honour to know, work with, and love, with the Entourage Collection community at large. We like to share our knowledge and open our books, whilst supporting the big brands and raising the voices of the lesser known ones.
 
As the days get shorter, try to take pleasure in the little things. Do something to make you laugh every day, even if it’s just watching ridiculous Tik Tok videos. Practice mindfulness, and enjoy the small rituals and new routines that you discovered during lockdown that made you happy. Be grateful for what you do have. But most importantly, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and be kind to yourselves and each other.
 
I hope this issue brings you some joy, 
With all our continued thanks,

THE SARTORIAL EDIT

BISLEY SHOOTING
As we head into the shooting season, we all could do with brushing up on our techniques, and there is nowhere better than Bisley Sporting Groups’ award-winning venue in Surrey at Long Siberia.
The perfect setting for lessons, 
Pay and Play, and the highest clay tower in the UK.
DAVIDOFF LONDON
Behind every cigar is a story and there is no greater storyteller than Eddie Sahakian, the proprietor of the iconic Davidoff of London. His knowledge of the fine art of smoking is unrivalled, he is a gentleman of the finest order, and truly the kindest man I have ever met. Treat yourself, step back in time, and indulge! 
MANOLO BLAHNIK
Be bold, be brave, be adventurous. Black tie is traditionally the meeting of the waiter penguins. There are only so many ways men can take risks with their outfits, and nothing makes a statement quite as boldly or elegantly as Manolo Blahnik’s shoes for men. 
DESMOND & DEMPSEY
I first discovered Desmond & Dempsey when my son received a pair of pyjamas from his very stylish Godmother, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Whatever your personal style, there’s a pair to match. Inspired by traditional tailoring, these are the ultimate in comfort, quality, and style.
ENTOURAGE CONCIERGE

OUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD
MORO, LONDON
It’s the stuff of dreams – pack up your worldly goods, drive through Spain, Portugal, Morocco, and the Sahara, then head back to London and open a restaurant to share your love of Moorish cuisine. The wood-fired oven and chargrill fill the air with wonderful aromas and the tables with vibrant and colourful food. 
CATHÉDRALE, NEW YORK
A French-Mediterranean restaurant that brings elemental, ingredient-driven cooking to the forefront, evoking the grandeur of the past whilst remaining contemporary in its execution. Dishes put pleasure over spectacle, taking inspiration from Southern France with traces of Italy, Spain, and Greece.
Built to showcase the mountain views that surround it, La Vue has windows
that frame the ski trails, which undulate from the doors of the slope-sited,
design-centric restaurant. At La Vue, the menu draws inspiration from the region, with dishes such as its famous lamb cooked with herbs from the on-site garden.
TRATTORIA 4 LEONI, FLORENCE
4 Leoni is located in Piazza della Passera, just a few steps away from the Pitti Palace. Tucked away in a cosy, hidden corner, the restaurant serves delicious Tuscan and Florentine dishes to the locals and tourists in the know (and at affordable prices, considering the quality and location). Ordering the pear pasta and bistecca Fiorentina are an absolute must.

AUTUMN SCENTS
With the weather changing, it’s time to switch from fresh, summery scents to more spicy, woody, and warm notes.
