Sometimes, we just can’t decide what to put in our Editor’s Picks. There’s just too much choice. Too many new brands cooking up brilliant new products and gadgets. Too many established companies reinventing their reputations with new and exciting launches. Too many great things to choose from. Too. Much. Choice.
But, this week, we’ve thrown caution to the wind. We couldn’t decide between two pieces of summerwear, so we threw both in. There were two new bright, breezy summer drinks we wanted to include — so we did. Two pairs of boots? No problem. We’ve even included offerings from both Jaguar and Aston Martin. So what are you waiting for? Take a look…
Short haul: Mr Marvis ‘The Estates’ Pique Shorts
It’s hot — if you hadn’t noticed. Time, then, to pull out that rarest of styles; tailored shorts. Mr Marvis are wizards when it comes to the look, and ‘The Estates’ are one of their finest pairs. As green and pleasant as you’d expect with a name like that, these piqué cotton, waffle look, regular rise shorts will see you through summer in well-ventilated style.

Earn your stripes: Luca Faloni Forte Linen Shirt
And, to pair breezily with your shorts above, you’ll be needing an equally lightweight shirt. Enter Luca Faloni, whose faultless approach to summerwear has left us with our jaws dropped, mouths agape — but bodies commendably cool. This striped Italian linen shirt even has a band collar to ensure you don’t overheat. Molto bene!

You’re fired: Gozney Black Edition Pizza Oven
If lockdown has boosted your gastronomic self-belief to such an extent that you now consider yourself a professional chef, we’ve got just the investment for you. With a hand-cast shell, an enamelled iron mouth and refractory stone floor, this dual wood/gas fired outdoor pizza oven will have you hosting Italian dinner parties before you can say ‘Margherita!’.

Can it: Chase’s Gin Seltzer Seville Orange Cans
There are three flavours to crack open in Chase’s new Gin Seltzer range. And, although we like the London Dry Lemon, and Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo options, nothing beats a 12-strong case of Seville Orange. Why? Because it’s a delicious juicy blend of sparkling water and our favourite Marmalade Gin from the British Brand. We’ll raise a can to that.

Coming up rosé: PAF Provence 1
If you’re looking for a truly natural rosé, PAF Provence is the wine for you. An organic rosé for all occasions, the grapes are grown on 12 hectares of vines facing the Sainte-Victoire mountain, harvested by hand and then turned into the fresh, fruity-coloured vino you see in this handsome bottle before you…

Face it: Woods Copenhagen Energizing Scrub
Because we could all do with a bit of energising, couldn’t we? Thankfully, this scrub from Woods Copenhagen has been whipped up with a trio of ingredients that’ll have you feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in no time. There’s micrograins, cloudberries and activated charcoal — all swirled together to splash you with the most deep-cleansing, super stimulating, invigorating wash of your life.

Hit the road: Jaguar E-Type '60 Edition'
Jaguar’s in-house Classic department is something of an automotive wonderland. They’ve given us grand experiments and refurbishments over the years, but this — a limited run of six matching pairs of ’60 Edition’ E-Types — may be the best launch yet. Each pair will comprise a grey Fixed Head Coupé and a green Roadster.

Give the boot: Church’s Eastville Derby Boot
Of course, not everyone’s casual enough for a good sneaker-style shoe. And, for those of us stomping back into the office this autumn, we’ve found another — equally fashionable — alternative. Church’s Eastville Derby Boots walk a fine line between smart and casual — and they do so in style; on hardy, reliable rubber soles.

Whisky business: Aston Martin X Bowmore Black Bowmore DB5
A few weeks ago, we wrote about Aston Martin’s Goldfinger continuation cars — 25 models priced at £3.3 million apiece. If you budget doesn’t quite stretch to four wheels, why not dig deep for this bottle of Bowmore instead? Commemorating the year both Goldfinger was released and Black Bowmore was first distilled, expect notes of acacia honey, coffee and tobacco smoke.
