The Last Word on the US Open

Carvell Wallace on greatness, Serena, and the US Open’s best menswear.

Luxury travel isn't always about penthouse suites and high thread-count sheets, and UK-based travel outfitter Black Tomato knows it. Since its inception, in 2005, the company, whose name refers to a rare delicacy, has offered bespoke travel experiences focusing on "getting back to your explorer roots." Two weeks ago, the founders launched a sister venture, Epic Tomato, which arranges expeditions to rarely visited places. Led by expert guides fluent in local dialects (some are even former members of British Special Services), the trips cover five terrain categories: jungle, desert, mountain, polar and rivers. Skiers can travel by private boat through Norwegian fjords and spend the day skiing the pristine slopes of the Lyngen Alps. Other potential adventures are climbing a volcano in South America's Atacama Desert or a nine-day stay with the Dani tribe of West Papua, where visitors learn to construct a proper bow and arrow, attend a traditional pig roast and sleep in villagers' huts. Each itinerary is completely tailored to the client's goals and wishes. Price upon request; 877-815-1497; epictomato.com.
