Editor’s Picks: Electric Motorcycle, EQ Earphones and Crypto Tracker

From a new ruffle-front evening shirt from Turnbull & Asser to a ‘honeygold’ Zeitwerk from A. Lange & Söhne, this is what we want this week…

If it ain’t broke, they say, don’t fix it. But you can tweak it. Because, by adjusting, adapting and updating products, brands can often breathe new live into enduring, existing designs.

Last week, Gentleman’s Journal headed down to Nyetimber for the brand’s ‘Harvest Luncheon’ — and a couple of glasses of the British brand’s fine sparkling wine. This Blanc de Blancs is the very spirit of elegance itself; with fragrant honeysuckle flirting with white peach and leavened with a fresh, zesty acidity.

Wake up: Heath Eye Serum

When we caught up with film costumier and stylist Tom David O’Dell earlier this month, he sung the praises of Heath’s ‘Eye Serum’ — a product that he helped to develop back in the early days of the British grooming brand. Powered with Persian Silk Tree Extract and blue light-battling Soliberine, it hydrates, firms up and helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

Lace up: Tod’s ‘No_Code J’ Sneaker

Bringing the refined, sophisticated style of Italian design to the world of sneakers, Tod’s latest trainers have an extra-light EVA outsole — which feature the brand’s iconic rubber pebbles on the back.
