Editor’s Picks: Wireless Speaker, Premium Pyjamas and Glashütte Original

From an all-electric motorcycle to a plaid jacket from Ralph Lauren, this is what we want this week…

Reliability. It’s the most important aspect or attribute of any product we buy. And so it should be. We don’t want shoes that fall apart after single steps, watches that stop ticking after a year or luggage that can’t take the thwacks and whacks of the baggage carousel. 

Thankfully, every item included in this week’s Editor’s Picks is exceedingly well-made. There’s a tough T-shirt from Plain & Simple. We’ve got a pair of hardy Crockett & Jones boots. Even Bennett Winch’s black leather folio was created to survive the most taxing commutes. Add to that an electric motorcycle with a ridiculously far-reaching range and a Bluetooth speaker with a Kevlar subwoofer, and this could be the most reliable collection of products we’ve ever rounded up. Take a look…

Buckle up: Ralph Lauren Plaid Wool Jumper Jacket

There’s no better way to wrap up tight than with a belted jacket. Buckled and bundled up, Ralph Lauren’s new wool ‘jumper’ jacket is as timeless as it is stylish; combining a utilitarian silhouette with a worsted wool construction — and finished with a classic ‘Glen’ plaid pattern for a truly toasty, dashing piece of outerwear.

Light work: Bennett Winch Black Leather Folio

How’s that return to office life treating you? It can be tricky keeping things organised when you’re not commuting to the kitchen table anymore — but we’ve found the perfect streamlined solution. The Bennett Winch ‘Folio’ is big enough for a 16-inch MacBook, is lined in suede and features uniquely placed brass poppers to keep it secure.

Bright spark: 2022 Zero SR Motorcycle

Zero has been leading the charge in electric motorcycling for years. But this new release, the 2022 model of the brand’s ‘SR’ bike, is the most pioneering yet. Our favourite feature? The new ‘Power Tank’ accessory. Replacing the glovebox in the faux petrol tank, it increases the two-wheeler’s range to a whopping 227 miles per charge.

Out of the blue: Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar

Limited to 100 pieces, this new stainless steel perpetual calendar from Glashütte Original is designed with some seriously striking colours. First up, there’s that galvanised rose opalin dial, featuring a clear layout of weekday, moon phase and panorama date. But the masterstroke? The vivid blue, coating everything from the railroad chapter ring to the elegant hands.

Stamp out: Crockett & Jones ‘Chelsea 11’ Boots

The Northampton-based shoemaker has created some colossally good Chelsea boots in the past. Our favourite of the bunch is likely the ‘Chelsea 5’. This new design, however, the ‘Chelsea 11’, bulks up the previous boot and cuts it in a fine slate suede. But don’t worry, thanks to a Dainite rubber sole and storm welt for added water resistance, it’s still up to the wintry weather job.
