Editor’s Picks: Ducati E-Scooter, Olympics Omega and Electric Jet-Ski

From a pair of comfortable, collapsible loafers from Cheaney to a festival-ready shirt available at Bicester Village, this is what we want this week…

Looking for something a little different? Because this week’s Editor’s Picks is full of subtle spins, fresh takes and new ideas.

There’s the latest from Ducati — but it’s a little slower and a lot cheaper than the Italian brand’s usual two-wheelers. There’s a pair of loafers from Cheaney — with no heels and many hidden talents. There’s even a drinks cabinet that shrugs off the stuffy reputation of Scotch collecting. Take a look below… 

Power up: Taiga Motors Orca Electric Jet-Ski

Palm off: The Kooples Palm Print Shirt at Bicester Village

Festival season is upon us. And you know what that means; it’s volume-pumping, bass-thumping time you upgraded your summer wardrobe. Thankfully, we’ve partnered with Bicester Village this week to compile the definitive guide — featuring shirts, like this printed palm option from The Kooples, even louder than the music itself.

Rev up: Royal Enfield Meteor

Designed in collaboration with Royal Enfield’s technical centre in Chennai, India, the Meteor 350 is an all-new motorcycle from the Bruntingthorpe-based brand. With a new ground-up engine and chassis, it is available in 7 colourways (we like ‘Stellar Red’) and comes fitted with the Royal Enfield Tripper turn-by-turn navigation device.

String along: Ostend ‘The Jeremy Pant’ Trousers

Earlier this year — in the midst of work-from-home madness — we made the case for drawstring trousers. Now that the world is re-opening, Ostend is doubling down on the argument. Woven from linen and fitted with an elastic drawstring waistband, these versatile khaki trousers are a comfortable alternative to stiff, restrictive chinos this summer.

Slip on: Cheaney Timothy Collapsible Tassel Loafer

What’s a collapsible loafer, we hear you ask? It’s exactly what it says on the soft suede upper, we answer. Semi-lined and constructed with flexibility in mind, Cheaney’s innovative ‘Timothy’ design features no shank, heel or toe stiffeners to ensure it travels well and feels weightless to wear. And, thanks to a new ‘flexy leather’ cemented sole, it’s as reliable as it is pliable.

Off-road: Ducati Cross-E ‘Scrambler’ Scooter

If you’ve always fancied owning a Ducati, this may be the electric scooter for you. Cheaper to buy and easier to handle than its bigger, more powerful brothers, the Cross-E ‘Scrambler’ mounts fat anti-puncture tires on a sturdy, hardy body — with three riding modes, large 3.5” LCD display and top speed of 25 kph.

Button it: Drake’s Corduroy Trucker Jacket

No brand puts sophisticated spins on classic casualwear like Drake’s. This, the British tailor’s take on the iconic trucker jacket, is inspired by vintage styles. With its short, slim shape and generous collar, it may look simple — but benefits from chain stitching, copper hardware, and a roughout suede waistband patch.
