Top up your essentials: Merino wool sweater by Mr P

Editor’s Picks: Slick swim shorts, an exclusive e-reader and a vintage Aston Martin

Although less than a year old, Mr P has fast become one of our go-to brands. Why? Because it’s a label that focuses on timeless wearables. For example, this grey wool sweater, which is new to the range, can be worn either to the workplace, during out-of-office drinks or when you’re on a weekend getaway to Bologna. It’s also cut in a comfortable fit, so is the perfect layering piece.

Invest in some vintage wheels: 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Series IV

Editor’s Picks: Slick swim shorts, an exclusive e-reader and a vintage Aston Martin

Born in 1958, the DB4 is an automobile icon, and during its five-year production run, five different models were made. 

The Series IV is perhaps the most coveted of the line and has now been completely restored, and this model – which will go on auction via RM Sotheby’s this May – maintains the Harold Beech-designed rigid steel platform and has also been upgraded with new suspension brackets, springs and brakes to ensure the smoothest of rides. For any car enthusiast, this should pique your interest.

Streamline your outfit: belt by Dalgado

Editor’s Picks: Slick swim shorts, an exclusive e-reader and a vintage Aston Martin

Men tend not to invest much money into their belt of choice; but, as an item that clearly demarcates the upper from the lower, it can often make or break an ensemble. This suede option by Dalgado has a classic weave design and is a far more subtle option than any garish Gucci buckle – as a result, it’ll give you some serious sartorial creds. 

Tackle that to-read list: Kindle Oasis in champagne gold

Editor’s Picks: Slick swim shorts, an exclusive e-reader and a vintage Aston Martin

Less than half a year after its release, Amazon has introduced a champagne gold colour option for the Kindle Oasis, giving the world-renowned e-reader a touch of opulence. 

The device still features a grey trim on the front, but this time the back is coated in a pale gold aluminium; however, substance isn’t sacrificed for style as features such as IPX8 water-resistance and the 300 ppi display remain.
