Win a luxury bundle, worth over £2,900, from some of Gentleman’s Journal’s favourite British brands
From suede loafers to breezy shirts, celebrate the return of the sun with these seasonal essentials…
Now that the clocks have gone forward and the sun has started to streak its way through the clouds, it finally feels like the darkness and dread of winter is beginning to shed itself and usher in better days. And here at Gentleman’s Journal, we’ve got even more good news for you, because we’ve put together a premium bundle containing some of our favourite items from a selection of labels that feature in our 50 Best British Brands list, a compilation of the finest makers, creators and producers found within these shores.
Included in this selection are a wax jacket from Barbour, the famed label for heritage-style outerwear; a scent from Floris, a favourite among the royal family since 1730; a few tipples from West Sussex’s most celebrated producer of sparkling wines; a finely crafted pair of loafers that’ll have you putting your best foot forward, courtesy of Crockett & Jones; and much, much more. And, best of all, we’re giving you the chance to win the entire selection, worth over £2,900. Here’s what’s on offer…
Barbour Classic Beaufort Wax Jacket
An icon of menswear, this versatile jacket is an essential for both breezy spring walks in the countryside (the corduroy collar and the Velcro-fastening wind cuffs block out draughts, and it’s designed with a showerproof finish) and darting around the city (the relaxed cut makes it ideal to layer over a suit). We particularly like the moleskin-lined handwarmer pockets, a most-welcome feature on spring days when the weather is a little more mercurial than usual.
Floris Santal Eau De Toilette
For years, we’ve been championing Floris’s superlative concoctions, which run the olfactory gamut from the floral to the fruity. Santal, one of the label’s signature creations, offsets heady notes of black pepper and clove bud with fresher hits, such as bergamot, green grass and lemon.
Nyetimber The Icons Case
For over three decades, Nyetimber has been making the country’s finest sparkling wine, thanks largely to the West Sussex climate and the chalk and greensand soils in which its grapes are grown. Included in this trio are the brand’s classic cuvee, which incorporates all varieties in Nyetimber’s vineyard and a few of its vintages; a rosé, where red-fruit hits from the pinot noir shine through; and a blanc de blancs, an easy-drinker with light fragrances of honeysuckle and citrus.
Bicester Village £300 Gift Card
Since 1995, this luxury-shopping hub, which put Bicester on the map, has brought swathes of style to Oxfordshire. If looking to top up your wardrobe, brands here include Axel Arigato, for pared-back sneakers; Moncler, for Alpine style; and Orlebar Brown, for essential swimwear. When needing a post-retail pit-stop, there are myriad options at which to fuel up, with Cecconi’s (which specialises in Italian fare) and Farmshop (an all-day British affair) the highlights among them.
Crockett & Jones Cavendish Loafers
With better weather starting to creep its way through the clouds, it’s time to upend your wardrobe in favour of more sun-appropriate items. When starting with the firm foundations of your ensemble, namely your footwear, these elegant options by Crockett & Jones – made with premium calf suede, a single leather sole and a Goodyear welt – will set you on the right path.
Emma Willis Azure Brushed Cotton Shirt
Equally as refined and elegant as the above is Emma Willis’s finely crafted off-duty shirt, made from 100% cotton and designed in a soft-blue palette that evokes the ripples of the Med. Iridescent mother of pearl buttons offer a premium finish. For that by-the-coast look, pair them with some slim-fit beige chinos.
Heath The Facial Routine Kit
As the cold season is coming to a close, it’s time to strip away winter’s damage with Heath’s small selection of grooming essentials, which includes a face wash made with activated charcoal and black lava; a shower mask that will revive any fatigued complexion; a gentle moisturiser; and a serum that helps brighten overworked eyes.
New & Lingwood White Poplin Tailored Fit Shirt
Here at Gentleman’s Journal, we have a penchant for timeless, unembellished designs, and New & Lingwood’s workwear workhorse – made from 100% Italian cotton; designed with a tailored, slim fit; and featuring a cutaway collar, double cuffs, split-yoke back and reinforced side gussets – is an evergreen item we reach for on a weekly basis.
KEF LSX II Wireless HiFi Speaker
Your living room will be delivered an instant upgrade with KEF’s all-in-one wireless speakers, an audiophile’s dream that draws together balanced sound, a weighty bass, and a clarity of treble. It’s compatible with AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Spotify and Tidal, and can connect to your laptop, TV and other devices. The fuss-free, pared-back design is just an added bonus.
