When it comes to expanding your knowledge of what it is to be stylish – and that means more than just looking the part, but actually living it – Jay Fielden is at the very top of the list – someone to read, emulate and follow. I had the pleasure of meeting Jay many years ago in Milan while he was Editor-in-Chief of Men’s Vogue, and I the Director of Men’s PR for Prada tasked with coming up with three new front row seats for his team. Of course this was not a problem, anything with Vogue attached to it is well placed at the table. Following the magazines retirement in 2008 there was a quiet period, but fortunately for those who enjoy living well, or at the least like to daydream, Mr. Fielden returned this past summer to a perfectly suited position: the lofty stewardship of Town & Country. Since he took over, the magazine has never looked better, still retaining it’s timeless elegance but deftly modernized with better cover subjects, more varied content and a beautiful redesign. That magnificent and dusty old mansion built in 1846 has been passed down to the chicer, younger generation. Bringing along like-minded and talented friends is essential, in this case Alexandra Kotur, formerly of Vogue, comes over as new Creative Director.

The terrific December 2011 issue features an in-depth look at the Richard’s family, a well edited story on chic ski destinations and a wonderfully presented pictorial on holiday feasting for the true gourmand.
