As the hugely popular SUV market continues to grow, so does the wonderful range of vehicles South Korean manufacturer Kia has to offer. This month here at The Gentleman Select I was lucky enough to test drive Kia’s newest addition, the XCeed, around the very cool streets of Berlin.
The Porsche 911. A car which has always been a dream for many but sadly at times, financially out of reach. Perhaps not though come next year as Stuttgart’s finest will be delivering new entry-level Carrera models that are both under six figures and still deliver that thrill we all know of and love.
Keeping our skincare and grooming regime in top shape is super important nowadays. Indeed to do that, you also need the best in shaving supplies and equipment. There are many subscription services out there at the moment. Each delivering different products. Personally here at The Gentleman Select I’ve always been a fan of a Gillette razor. Its a brand synonymous with quality and craftsmanship. With this in mind, recently I decided to check out their Shave Club subscription service. Importantly discovering why this is a welcome addition to any gentleman’s grooming regime and perfect for the man who wants to look and feel sharp.
As the worlds oldest watch manufacture in continuous production, Vacheron Constantin have produced some incredible timepieces over their 260 year history. Now, in partnership with the famous London department store Harrods, they have created two stunning 20 piece limited edition watches within the Tradtionnelle Collection. Two watches which both symbolise London luxury and display the Maison’s incredible artistic craft and Haute Horlogerie abilities.
Dutch brand Suitsupply are most certainly a favourite of mine on The Gentleman Select. Consistently they have produced many stand out pieces over the years. Happily once again, I can say they have knocked it out the park by presenting the worlds lightest suit. A wonderful alternative to linen and indeed perhaps the perfect answer for that upcoming summer wedding you have on the cards.
Tarraco is the Latin name of the Catalonian port city of Tarragona in Spain. Fast forward a year or two and it is now the name of a stylish new SEAT SUV to hit the market. A few weeks back with The Everyday Man, I attended the UK media launch of the SEAT Tarraco at Amber Lakes in Wraysbury and got behind the wheel of this new model within the range.
The purpose of footwear is to protect us against the elements and the ground we walk on. It is equally important however that they are crafted with passion, look good and will last as well. Enter Unseen Footwear. A brand that is the epitome of minimalistic style and quality.
If you are looking for a glamorous day out, look no further than the prestigious Stobo Castle Ladies Day at Musselburgh Racecourse. On the 1st of June Scotland’s largest five star racing day event, Ladies Day, will begin in truly glittering fashion. A sell-out event famed for its inimitable atmosphere, its a day for the ladies & gentleman to dawn their finest outfits and really dress to impress!
Everyday we are out and about in the elements. Perhaps heading to work, going shopping or off to a meeting. Undoubtedly at some point you also will have been caught in a Spring downpour. Sitting in damp clothes for the rest of the day is certainly no pleasure but it is avoidable with some preparation. My recommendation, the new Tornado umbrella from Fulton. A stylish, functional accessory, it’s perfect for keeping you protected from any Spring shower that appears by surprise.
Marking the first-ever collaboration with the actors estate, stylish sunglass outfitters Oliver Peoples have produced the Cary Grant collection. A seriously cool range of sunglasses and glasses inspired by those the legendary actor wore in the 1959 Hollywood classic North by Northwest.
