Man Of The Month – Ernie Sadau

Ernie Sadau
CEO of CHRISTUS Health
Global Citizen

Mr. Sadau is a perfect example of the type of man we cater to.  He is based in Dallas, Texas but on any given day he could be in London, Tokyo, India or Paris.  He is the quintessential 72 hour man.  Given his schedule and his distaste for shopping, Mr. Sadau leaves his wardrobe in the hands of his wonderful wife Roxanne.  The two were recently in New York and Roxanne managed to convince him to come to the Lodge.  For a man who hates shopping, Mr. Sadau and his wife spent hours in the Lodge.  He admitted, after a few whiskies, that he never thought he could spend a day shopping. We now get texts from him across the globe sharing the various compliments he continues to get.

SEASONLESS TIMES

MARCH – MAY

Remember when Spring meant changing over your closet? Those days are long gone. Today’s time requires the gent to be prepared for the chill in the morning, the warm day and then a cool evening.

The art of layering is essential. The Toronto jacket offers just the right amount of warmth for the morning and the evening.

SEPTEMBER – NOVEMBER

Ah, we have such great memories of what used to be the Fall. Today most of the world enjoys an Indian Summer combined with a random Fall-like days.

Hold onto the past by keeping a Fall-like colour palette, but your clothing should be light, elegant and functional.

NOVEMBER – DECEMBER

We are not the “Farmer’s Almanac” but rest assured, during these months one needs to really be prepared for what may come.

These months are often travel heavy, so it is essential to keep your wardrobe streamlined for an Artic East Coast blast or a West Coast El whatever.
