Rough and ready: Land Rover Defender Hard Top 110

The Defender was built to work. Both the original model and the new, more capable iteration of the car were engineered to meet global safety standards and deliver impressive long-haul comfort. This makes them ideal commercial vehicles — and it’s testament to the icon’s design that this new Hard Top, intended for professional use, looks just as luxurious and stylish as the rest of the range.

Raise a glass: CleanCo ‘Clean R’ Golden Spiced Spirit

It’s rum — but not as you know it. CleanCo, the revolutionary drinks brand founded by Spencer Matthews in 2019, recently launched the latest low-alcohol addition to its award-winning portfolio. With warming cayenne pepper spice, a golden caramel mouth-feel and just 1.2% alcohol, it’s a hangover-free, sugar-free, guilt-free taste of the Caribbean.

Hard as nails: SunGod ‘Sierras’ Sunglasses

Summer is going to be tough on our sunglasses. They’ve had a year off — so returning to the hustle and bustle of socialising is bound to break a few frames. Thankfully, SunGod’s ‘Sierras’ are crafted from a material that can be bent, bashed and bullied without ever breaking. Fully customisable, we like this brown-on-brown colourway.

Taken to task: Turnbull & Asser Linen Chore Jacket

The famed Jermyn Street shirtmaker may be known for its delicately dapper shirts — but Turnbull & Asser’s tailors can rough it when they need to. This humble, hardwearing chore jacket from the brand has an authentic ‘boxy’ fit, button-through front and revere collar. But there’s still a touch of that debonair flair, thanks to the bright, bold colour of its linen-cotton blend.

Couple that with 10 hours of play time and some precision-engineered acoustics, and you’ll be able to soundtrack even your most far-flung adventures.
