With the new Formula One season beginning this weekend just passed in Bahrain, it was wonderful to see the return of Aston Martin after 60 years away from the sport. What is equally as exciting however is that with Aston now joining Mercedes as an F1 safety car, they have also very kindly decided to give us a road going version as well. The Vantage Formula 1 Edition.
As watch releases go this is certainly one of the more unusual, though definitely equally as interesting as any other. Swiss manufacturer Blancpain has presented us with a limited-edition tribute to the classic Fifty Fathoms. The ‘No Radiations’.
Many performers past and present have given us an alter ego as unforgettable as their music. One which captures their personality and style. Now, Bruno Mars is introducing us to his very own, Ricky Regal, as he collaborates with French fashion giant Lacoste.
Feeling and smelling good is hugely important nowadays. What’s equally important is also the origin of those grooming products you use. What goes into them. Where the ingredients come from. Factors more and more of us are considering. Over the past few weeks I’ve been checking out and using some wonderful products by Fyodor. A brand which produces premium, natural deodorants for men. They are indeed the perfect accompaniment for your toilet bag whilst traveling and the grooming shelf at home.
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.
