From a Panerai table clock and pair of Chester Barrie trousers, to a Turnbull & Asser shirt and an Italian Bamboo Bar Set, this is what we want this week...

Chester Barrie Fine Hopsack Trousers

Editor’s Picks: Tod’s Loafers, Moto Guzzi Motorcycle and Persol Sunglasses

The summer jacket is a difficult beast. Too heavy and you’ll be left sweating. Too light and there’ll be no structure to it. But, while everyone grapples with this style problem, we often forget about our trousers. Yes, jackets are tricky, but there’s nothing more difficult than choosing a sartorially sound pair of summer trousers. Until now.

Chester Barrie have mastered the lightweight wool trouser. Lightly coloured, flat-fronted and with a gentle taper to give shape without limiting movement, these Loro Piana wool trousers are your new summer essential.

TOD’S Gommino Leather Driving Shoes

Editor’s Picks: Tod’s Loafers, Moto Guzzi Motorcycle and Persol Sunglasses

As summertime approaches, your vintage convertible will spend increasingly more time out of your garage and more time haring around country back lanes. With that many miles racking up, you risk discomfort in an old motor. But Tod’s are on hand — or should that be foot? — to ensure that never happens.

Made in Italy from chocolate leather, laced with a braided trim and speckled with rubber pebbles that act as a cushioning sole, these shoes have been staples of the driving wardrobe since their introduction in the 1970s. They’re the perfect accessory, so drive off into the sunset with a pair today.
