Some weeks we feel more decadent than others. Occasionally, our Editor’s Picks are surprisingly attainable — pleasingly within reach for everyone who reads these very articles. But this week, we’ve aimed high.
So, if you’re looking to throw a dart at a British tweed-upholstered board, shake up a cocktail in a sterling silver shaker, or take to the waves in a surfboard that costs more than your average car, you’re in the right place…
Wrap up: Canada Goose X Henry Poole W1 Blazer
A couple of weeks ago, Gentleman’s Journal headed to an undisclosed London location for an exciting new launch from Canada Goose. The kings of outerwear didn’t disappoint. Their new collaboration with Savile Row tailors Henry Poole is a quilted blazer made for modern life, cut and stitched with centuries of tradition.

Slip on: Crockett & Jones Cranleigh Chelsea Boots
Although the snow might be persuading you to think otherwise, summer is on its way. How do we know? Crockett & Jones, celebrated British shoemakers, have unveiled their summer collection. Not available until March, we can’t wait for the new crepe-soled Cranleighs — crafted for the summer season in mid-blue suede.

Shake it: Asprey Racing Car Sterling Silver Cocktail Shaker
You may think that £10,000 seems excessive for a cocktail shaker. You’d usually be right, but we’re digging deep for this sterling silver offering from Asprey. Introducing a novelty twist to your drinks cabinet, it’s detailed with inlays and rests securely on a stand with carved ebony wheels. Time to shift your mixology up a gear? We certainly think so.

Aim high: Huntsman Tweed Dartboard Cabinet
There’s nothing like a dart board to up your man-cave credentials. And, if you’re going to invest, then it pays to go for the best. That would surely be a Hunstman Tweed covered cabinet, housing a Winamu Sisal dartboard, then? Now you just have to work on your round nine.

Surf’s up: Linley Fistral Surfboard
Several months ago, we were taken aback by a surfboard crafted from reclaimed whisky barrels — and we didn’t think the waterborne sport could get any more decadent.
It appears we were wrong, as Linley rides into view with their fully-functional 7’2 board, made out of sustainably sourced Paulownia timber, decorated with a 70’s inspired marquetry motif and named after the iconic Cornish Beach we’re itching to take it to.

Lace up: Auxiliary Infra Black and White Trainers
Available at Liberty London, the exclusive department store, these premium sneakers are designed by Matthew Taylor of Puma and Paul Smith fame. Focusing on simplicity and quality to create the ultimate contemporary trainer, we can think of few better kicks than these premium leather sneakers with chunky soles and reflective indicators.

Button it: Bluemint Martin Shirt
Did you hear? Green’s having something of a renaissance. It’s a humble colour, but one that pairs with many styles and hues — and is therefore your go-to this Spring season. That’s also why, when looking through the many colours and patterns Bluemint offer their ‘Martin’ shirt in (22, at last count), we’ve settled on this understated shade.
