Editor’s Picks: Prince Tennis Racquet, No.3 Gin Cruise and Ford Bronco
From the latest laser-equipped 4K projector from Nebula to an eBike from Harley Davidson, this is what we want this week…
There’s a decidedly summery slant on this week’s Editor’s Picks. Whether we’re slipping on a pair of striped loafers, buttoning up a bold pair of swim shorts or popping on a lightweight linen cap, our warm weather wardrobes are all already stitched up.
But we’re also looking ahead. To tee up some summer adventures, we’ve rounded up a roadtrip-ready eBike from Harley Davidson, an off-roader from Ford and a cocktail cruise down London’s River Thames. And, for anyone currently consumed by Wimbledon, we’ve even served up the most retro racquet money can buy. Take a look…
Hats off: Luca Faloni Linen Baseball Cap
As the Italian brand expands into Munich and Milan, Luca Faloni has also launched a new range of accessories. This timeless six-panel summer cap combines a classic sporty design with a contemporary edge; crafted in Italy from breathable linen, and finished with a contrast lining and detailed elasticated strap. A summer staple.

Pedal power: Serial 1 ‘Mosh/Tribute’ eBike
Oddly-named and highly-limited, this vintage-tinged two-wheeler from Harley Davidson’s celebrated eBike brand is a retro treat. Only 325 will be available to buy in Europe, and the hydro-formed aluminium frame brings together a Brooks leather saddle, white-toned Schwalbe tyres and a battery boasting an impressive 105-mile range.

Turn it up: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding ‘Music Edition’
Inspired by the watchmaker’s longstanding association with musicians, this striking new timepiece from the artists over at Audemars Piguet deploys its signature ‘tapisserie’ dial to great, audio-invoking effect. Mimicking the sound levels of an equaliser, the rainbow colours add a dynamic touch — and the crown guards are designed to resemble mixing console faders.

Shifting gears: Ford Bronco SUV
Exciting news for any Bronco fans; Ford’s trusty generational SUV is finally coming to Europe. But don’t order your cowboy boots just yet — the rugged cornerstone of the carmaker’s off-road offering will still only be available in left-hand drive, and only in select EU markets. But it’s exciting news nonetheless; one to keep an eye on.
Up to speed: Breguet x Lamborghini ‘Dashboard Clock’
In the 1990s, Breguet created a chronograph ‘dashboard clock’ for Lamborghini’s ‘Diablo’ model. On show at last week’s London Concours, the clock was offered at the time as an upgrade — for around £12,000. Just 60 were made, each featuring a gilded green lacquer, Breguet blue steel hands and the Lamborghini logo.
Dive in: Gusari ‘St. Barts’ Swim Shorts
The island of Saint Barthélemy is soaked in summer spirit. One of the most popular Caribbean destinations, the French colony’s roads are lined with designer shops; its beaches with white sand. And both style and sea come together with Gusari’s aptly-named ‘St. Barts’ shorts — classically cut, brightly coloured and ultra-quick drying.

Blockbuster: Nebula Cosmos 4K Laser Projector
Home cinemas are a serious business. And, given any self-discerning film fanatic will want every single pixel to ‘pop’, there’s no better projector than Nebula’s new 4K ‘Cosmos’ model. With the intensity of 2,400 ISO Lumens, dual 10W speakers and Android TV 10.0, it’s a one-stop entertainment shop.

Plain sailing: No.3 Gin Summer Cocktail Cruise
Ever wanted to sail off into the sunset? With No.3 Gin, you’ll finally have the chance this summer. Upping anchor aboard the most botanical boat in London, the spirited brand is putting on luxury yacht trips down the Thames — with four gin cocktails, spectacular city views and a cheese and charcuterie board per person. What’s more, Gentleman’s Journal readers can enjoy 20% off with the code BBR20.

In full swing: Prince x Reigning Champ ‘Graphite 107’ Racquet
“Prince is a beautiful brand,” said entrepreneur David Grutman when we met him earlier this summer. “And I’ve brought it back — through collabs with friends of mine”. One such brand-saving partnership is this, a retro-flavoured racquet created with Reigning Champ. Limited-edition and finished with stencilled strings and a natural calfskin grip, it’s a seriously stylish bit of hard-hitting kit.
Step up: MULO Breton Stripe Espadrilles
The ‘Breton Stripe’ is a bold beacon of summer. Simple, but endlessly recognisable, MULO has slipped the pattern onto a pair of slip-ons; stitching the stripes onto a pair of their linen espadrilles. With a textured rubber crepe sole and sustainably produced braided sidewall, they’re effortlessly elegant and ideal for adventures.
