Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Royal Enfield Motorcycle and Church’s Sneakers


From a British-made kitchen knife to one of the finest single malts to come out of Scotland this year, this is what we want this week…

If you’re looking to set out on an adventure, there are certain things you need. A solid pair of boots, for one. A map always helps. And maybe a good book to pass the time.

Then comes the more extravagant gear — the items you could definitely do without, but why would you? So, from an explorer’s camera and smashing bottle of whisky, to a limited edition motorcycle, we’ve discovered the best items to supplement — and up the luxury factor — of your next adventure.

In the field: Leica M10-P ‘Safari’ Camera

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Royal Enfield Motorcycle and Church’s Sneakers

In 1957, Leica released their first olive green camera. It was designed and constructed for use in the field and soon garnered a worldwide reputation as a robust and reliable companion even under most extreme of conditions.

Since then, the brand’s olive green editions have become the most coveted releases for collectors and enthusiasts — and the M10-P Edition Safari is the newest addition to this range. Snap it up.

Raise a dram: Glenmorangie Allta Private Edition No.10

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Royal Enfield Motorcycle and Church’s Sneakers

Released to mark the 10th anniversary of Glenmorangie’s Private Edition series, the Allta is a limited edition single malt. The word itself means ‘wild’ in Scots Gaelic — and it’s a whisky that lives up to that name.

The Allta has been made using a previously-undiscovered strain of local yeast growing on the barley near the Glenmorangie distillery, and has a biscuity nose, light menthol and zesty citrus flavours as a result.

Two-wheeled fury: Royal Enfield Interceptor ‘Glitter and Dust’ Edition

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Royal Enfield Motorcycle and Church’s Sneakers

It may sound like a David Bowie song, but the latest release from Royal Enfield — the ‘Glitter and Dust’ edition — is a two-wheeled sight to behold.

With a highly-polished petrol tank, this bike is classically styled and visually beautiful. And the new engine, Royal Enfield’s most forward-looking yet, ensures that the Interceptor roars as sweetly as it shines.

Hit the waves: Wally 48 Wallytender Cruiser

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Royal Enfield Motorcycle and Church’s Sneakers

Wally created the original iconic tender — and this is a restyled version of that very boat. With fold-down bulwark sections, a large interior volume, galley unit on deck, plenty of storage and special anchoring system operated at the touch of a button, this is as high-tech as tenders come.

And, thanks to a propulsion package of two new Volvo IPS 650 engines (totalling 1020 Hp) with a top speed of 38 knots, it’s one of the fastest, too.
