Editor’s Picks: Leather Tennis Bag, Aston Martin and Luxury Dumbbells

From a double-breasted summer blazer to the latest limited edition Leica camera, this is what we want this week…

Watching Wimbledon? You should be. We’ve been following the (waterlogged) action all week — and simply can’t get enough. Perhaps that’s why, this week, our Editor’s Picks have the grass-stained, grand-slamming, strawberries-and-cream flavour of Wimbledon about them…

There’s a pair of grass green shorts from Luca Faloni. There’s a bottle of limited edition Lanson champagne. There’s a Royal Box-ready blazer, a backhand-boosting pair of dumbbells and a fast-shooting camera that could keep up with even the swiftest of serves. Add to that the most luxurious tennis bag on the market, and we’ve got a selection of tennis-tinged new releases you’re bound to love…

On the double: Thom Sweeney Unstructured Pinstriped Blazer

Whether you’re sashaying into Centre Court or heading out for an al fresco evening meal, few pieces of tailoring are as reliable and timeless as the double-breasted blazer. Adding to the appeal, Thom Sweeney has cut this softly-structured jacket from fine Italian wool — finished with a pinstriped pattern.
