Monkstrap shoes by Sons of London

Wishlist: Record Player, Coffee Set and Monkstrap Shoes

The definitive Double Monk Strap shoe for men. With nickel-toned buckles, subtle double-stitch toe detailing, and full leather lining and sole, these handcrafted Italian calfskin shoes also come in a rich brown suede – to ensure they match with any outfit. Sons of London’s suede has also been specially treated to give water resistant properties that won’t brush off like ordinary protectant sprays.

Starman Reflex jacket

Wishlist: Record Player, Coffee Set and Monkstrap Shoes

Now that the festivities are over, it’s time to get back on the saddle and trim that excess Turkey weight. Need some motivation to do so? Then Huez has you covered. The Starman Reflex jacket is the brand’s most technical piece to date and is made from water-column proofing of 5.000mm and a superior breathability, including mesh features under the arms and a rear vent at the shoulder point. The fabric’s two-way stretch also improves comfort and allows for greater movement to ensure that the fit is fine-tuned for your bike position. Perhaps most impressive is the fact that there are tiny reflective beads sewn into the jacket that reflect car lights back to the source, meaning that drivers should be able to identify you sooner. The morning commute never looked so appealing.

A stay at Terminal Neige Refuge Du Montenvers Hotels

Wishlist: Record Player, Coffee Set and Monkstrap Shoes

For over 100 years, the Terminal Neige Refuge du Montenvers Hotel has played host to travellers, mountaineers and wanderlusters who’ve traversed far and wide to see France’s La Mer de Glace. Overlooking the gargantuan glacier, this luxury stay pays homage to the romantic era of travel as each of its 20 renovated rooms and suites is kitted out with trunks, wood panelling and miner’s lamps. Moreover, there’s also a retro-style dormitory which hosts 10 bunk-beds, as well as restaurants and cafés that serve up French fare alongside sweeping vistas of the surrounding landscape.

Whisky decanter by LSA International

Wishlist: Record Player, Coffee Set and Monkstrap Shoes

Mouthblown by artisans and fitted with a hand-ground stopper, the Renfrew decanter by LSA International is a drinks cabinet must-have. While the solid walnut base is a nod to the maturation process of fine single malts in aged wooden casks, the heavy glass bottom gives the decanter a weighty and, in effect, opulent feel. For all Don Draper wannabes out there, this is the thing for you.

Wrensilva Loft Record Console

Wishlist: Record Player, Coffee Set and Monkstrap Shoes

Crafted from North American wood, the Loft is Wrensilva’s smallest console to date. But despite its bijou stature, it packs a hefty punch thanks to the 300 watts per channel that runs through the amplifier. Moreover, it comes complete with a 3.5mm audio jack, a set of RCA inputs (which is compatible with anything from an old school cassette deck to a digital cable box) and a walnut finish. The unit is also compatible with most speakers and can connect to any Sonos unit over Wi-Fi.
