This week, we’ve discovered some of the most outlandish products of 2019. But we’re only three weeks in, we hear you cry?
True, but come back to us later in the year with another seven days of Jet-Ski Planes, Turbine Watch Winders and £60,000 Globes and we’ll be very, very surprised…
Vintage style: Brunello Cucinelli Suede Safari Jacket
With Spring (mercifully) on the horizon, it’s time to start looking for transitional pieces to plump up your wardrobe. And there’s nothing better than the Safari Jacket. This option, from Brunello Cucinelli, perfectly blends the cool of a leather jacket with the practicality of an overshirt. It’s retro. It’s refined. And it’s very, very cool.

Take off: FlyNano Electric Water Aircraft
Now this is a hard one to explain. Imagine a jetski, but it’s also an aeroplane, but it’s also sort of a hovercraft. That’s pretty much what FlyNano have managed to invent with this easy-flying water-borne aircraft. And yes, it’s as fun as it sounds.

First class: Ralph Lauren Leather-Trimmed Aeroplane Blanket Set
Because flying can sometimes be hard. Crying children, jet-lag, delays.

Namely, this soft fleece, leather-trimmed, zip-fastened offering from Ralph Lauren. It comes with an eye mask, too.
