From a jazzy Turnbull & Asser pocket square to a Paul Smith washbag in his signature stripe, this is what we want this week

It’s time to make some noise. Everything that’s caught our eye this week, from the Turnbull & Asser pocket square we’re trumpeting to the latest collaboration by audiophiles Master & Dynamic, has the volume turned up to 11.

So, whether you’re into loud, bold stripes from Paul Smith, the striking, grab-you-by-the-lapels flavours of Jim Beam’s masterpiece edition or the noisily numeric dial of Blancpain’s latest complete calendar GMT, these are the products for you.

Tune up: Turnbull & Asser Jazz Blue Silk Pocket Square

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Wireless Speaker and a Complete Calendar GMT

One of this year’s jazzier seasonal numbers, renowned shirtmakers Turnbull & Asser have just released a pocket square that would make even Louis Armstrong blush. With trumpets, trombone slides and the unmistakable ivories of a honky tonk piano emblazoned on the silk, it’s an accessory that makes some noise.

Turn it up: Master & Dynamic MA770 Wireless Speaker

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Wireless Speaker and a Complete Calendar GMT

A new geometry of sound.” And he’s not wrong — the shape comes only second to the materials; an innovative blend of concrete, kevlar and titanium. Turn it up.

Master craft: Linley Torque Table

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Wireless Speaker and a Complete Calendar GMT

Just one of the many pieces of spectacular furniture from this year’s PAD London, Linley’s latest table had everyone talking — or should that be torquing?

Flowing like the pleats of a dress, the sculptural base supports a stunning tabletop and features veneers that swirl around a lazy Susan hewn from marble. The table seats eight in comfort — not to mention style.

Tick-tock: Blancpain Quantième Complet GMT

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Wireless Speaker and a Complete Calendar GMT

Since the early 1980s, Blancpain’s complete calendar moonphase timepieces have been a signature of the house. But, by adding the GMT function, this has elevated the timepiece to a high complication. And, thanks to the exclusive under-lug correctors, you can now set of all the calendar and moon phase indications with a finger tip, instead of the standard tool.

Editor’s Picks: Leica Camera, Wireless Speaker and a Complete Calendar GMT

The world’s first interactive mirror-cum-home gym, the simply-named ‘Mirror’ features live and on-demand fitness classes in a variety of workout genres. Sounds odd? That’s because it is — genuinely the workout of the future.
