From a Morgan bicycle to some iconic black and white photography prints, this is what we want this week…

Sometimes it’s the little things. It’s the little things that we have in life that make things that much better. From brushing your teeth in the morning to your night-cap before you get into bed, make tiny upgrades across the board and you’ll live a richer life overall.

Thankfully, we’ve got just the toothbrush to help with the former, and the perfect new launch from Martell to take care of the latter — not to mention all the gear to help you up your game in the hours between…

Audi e-tron

After many months of anticipation, the Audi e-tron has recently been unveiled at a world premiere in San Francisco. It’s the first all-electric car from the brand and, while Tesla may be a little further up your list when it comes to buying a plug-in motor, we think the styling of the Sportback option may be enough to swing it…

Sink a drink: Botanic Lab Damiana Botanical Tea Drink

Editor’s Picks: Brass Lighter, Electric Audi and a classic Pea Coat

Damiana (no, we’d never heard of it either) was apparently the go-to aphrodisiac for Aztec Tribes in native Mexico. An interesting story, and now you get to taste this magical ingredient blended with grapefruit and thyme in a refreshing fruit drink. It’ll be an experience, if nothing else…

Paint the town red: Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels

Editor’s Picks: Brass Lighter, Electric Audi and a classic Pea Coat

When a barrel is called “Red”, it is a reference to the reddish color of aged wood, meaning that is has reached the perfect stage of maturation for both the wood and the spirit. For Martell VSOP aged in Red Barrels, the brand’s cellar master selected only the very rare “red fine grained oak barrels” — and it’s quite a cognac as a result.

Button it: New & Lingwood Double Face Pea Coat

Editor’s Picks: Brass Lighter, Electric Audi and a classic Pea Coat

A year or two again, the Pea Coat had a bit of a renaissance. Everyone seemed to be wearing one.
