A wise man once told me that a gentleman could never have too many shoes, nor too many watches. However, and that is especially true when it comes to timepieces, men should always make an educated choice and look specifically for design, quality and all around timelessness. That is why we tend to prefer brands that offer classic shapes rooted in history, such as independent German label Defakto.
We love old school mixology and original liquors that make great cocktails and impress guests. Suze is definitely one of these. Have you ever heard of it? Suze is basically a bitter apéritif drink made from the gentian root. And though it’s a French favourite, it was actually invented in Switzerland. Most importantly, have you ever tasted it? If it’s your first time, I would definitely recommend you try it in a cocktail. And we have just the drink for that: the Suze spritz.
Since moving back to England after having spent several years in the US, we have become quite obsessed with classic British brands that reflect a certain idea of craftsmanship and masculinity –think Barbour. But we’ve also been looking for new creative brands that celebrate that heritage, because well, that’s what we do. That’s how we came across Wilson & Co, even before the brand actually launched, and we’re very excited to finally be able to introduce their first collection (and offer you a discount –read more for the good stuff).
If you’re a frequent reader of the blog, you’d know that there’s nothing we love to celebrate more than quality and simplicity. We aim to feature independent brands that share our beliefs –and design studio Linjer is definitely one of them. We recently discovered them through social media and now we’re hooked.
We’ve been stuck in the city for the majority of the summer and have been wanting to get away. As much as I love city life, sometimes it’s good -if not essential- to escape the urban jungle. Being hyper-connected all the time and navigating busy streets on a daily basis starts to take its toll. Even us native city folks aren’t immune to this feeling.
You know it, we love bags. Especially backpacks. We already have a pretty big collection but still we were recently looking for the perfect backpack to carry a laptop… We found it on Eastpak‘s website. And we decided to work with the brand to offer you a chance to own that bag too. After all, we know that just like us you are busy men who run around carrying their laptop everywhere you go.
