Editor’s Picks: Custom Motorcycle, Leather Boots and Glenlivet Whisky

From the new Overseas Self-Winding wristwatch from Vacheron Constantin to a pair of GH Bass Loafers, this is what we want this week…

Feeling the chill? We know we are. But, as autumn looms into gloomy view, we’re also looking on the brighter side. We can start lacing up our heftier leather boots again! We can start zipping up some choice new knitwear! We can even dip back into our reserves of sumptuous scotch whiskies!

And, with new releases this week from Henry Poole, Luca Faloni, Cheaney, Vacheron Constantin and GH Bass, we can do so in style…

Zip it: Luca Faloni Cashmere Zip Cardigan

editor's picks luca faloni

It’s a small wonder that Luca Faloni hasn’t yet dabbled in the perfectly-practically zip-through world of cardigans. But this latest addition to his knitwear range couldn’t have come at a better time. With transitional weather making it a nightmare to dress for your day, there’s nothing better than a pure cashmere, ribbed edge, smart-casual cardigan to arm you for autumn.

Watch out: Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding

editor's picks vacheron constantin

Announced yesterday at the inaugural Watches & Wonders in Shanghai, Vacheron Constantin’s new Overseas Self-Winding model is a treat. With a pink gold case and blue dial, this new self-winding three-hand version may look like a departure from the traditional Overseas style — but it retains the oh-so important signature Maltese Cross hexagonal bezel.

Retro racer: Panache Bushidan

editor's picks motorcycle

Remember the Kawasaki W650? Well this is what happens when you zhuzh it up a little. In the hands of the aptly-named Panache Customs, the W650 becomes the Bushidan — a parallel-twin retro-styled bike fitted with a Moto Guzi V7 tank and vintage-inspired paint designs by French designer Remy Roland. But you’ll have to move quicker than the motorcycle itself if you want one; the run is limited to just 5 models.

Give the slip: GH Bass Weejuns Penny Loafers

editor's picks gh bass weejuns

Stepping back into the office? Make the sensible choice. You’ve likely been wearing slippers to work for the past six months — and GH Bass’ Weejuns Penny Loafers are just as comfy as your fuzzy old faithfuls. What’s more, with their wine polished leather uppers, hand stitched seams and leather heel stock, they’re considerably more appropriate for the boardroom.

Making waves: Attitude, an Otam 80 HT

editor's picks otam yacht

Fresh from a re-styling, the flagship of the Otam shipyard is up for sale. Offering the ideal mid-point between mechanical engineering, naval architecture and racing DNA, her sporty exterior physique, top speed of 47 knots and monochrome colour scheme give Attitude a certain sophistication, posture and poise. Or, in other — more fitting — words, an attitude.

Lead the charge: Anden Watch Valet

editor's picks anden watch valet

Everyone likes the idea of having a valet, surely? And, even though this one is a little more static than the chauffeur-cum-manservants of old, Anden’s solid walnut smartwatch valet is just as handy. Crafted in London and finished by hand, this sleek tabletop accessory fits any Apple Watch charger and boasts four milled grooves to show off your strap collection.

Raise a glass: Glenlivet 18 Year Old

editor's picks glenlivet 18

Despite the year we’ve all been having, there’s something about a decent dram of scotch that makes everything feel okay. And Glenlivet’s 18 Year Old is a couple of notches above decent. With a nose of toasty cereals, apple blossom and sugary fudge, it’s comfort and reassurance in a bottle. So don’t worry that 2020 was wasted — because you’ll still be enjoying this long, spicy oak finish well into 2021.

Tread carefully: Cheaney Trafalgar Capped Derby Boots

Move fast! There’s currently 20% off Cheaney’s famous Trafalgar Boots. As British as the square from which they take their name, these Burgundy calf leather kicks are crafted in the brand’s Northamptonshire factory. Goodyear-welted and fitted with a Vibram Vi-Lite sole, they walk the line between rugged and lightweight — and they do so in inimitable style.

Good as gold: Annoushka Lovelink Bracelet

editor's picks lovelink

Is jewellery fit for men? It’s a question we commonly ask ourselves. But then along comes an accessory as understated, distinguished and well-made as Annoushka’s Lovelink bracelet, and we wonder — why did we ever question ourselves? With a subtle 14ct gold band, and leather sourced from British institution Connolly, have you ever clapped eyes on a more handsome piece of men’s jewellery?

Check it out: Land Rover X Henry Poole Jacket

editor's picks henry poole land rover

To celebrate Range Rover’s 50th anniversary, the British motoring brand have teamed up with another national treasure — Henry Poole, the founding tailor of Savile Row. At the recent Concourse of Elegance, the two brands launched a bespoke fabric — using the original 1970s exterior colour palette of the car — and will fashion 50 commemorative, limited edition jackets from the material.
