AMT x McLaren
Few of us can expect to own (or even drive) a McLaren in our lifetime. So the next best thing is to take home a pair of cufflinks made from genuine McLaren parts and claim you take the bus for “environmental reasons”.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of McLaren in Formula 1, expert metal workers Alice Made This has produced the specially designed accessories with real components taken from the MP4-23 and MP4-27, driven by world champions Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton. As far as consolation prizes go, we’re okay with that.
Available at McLaren, priced £150.

Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook
It’s a well known story that the menswear world came close to losing one of its most successful and beloved designers to the world of sport. Had his cycling career not been cut short by injury aged 17, Sir Paul Smith might today be more readily seen in Lycra than his signature suits.
Having always maintained an involvement in the sport, Smith has launched a new book to collate the memorabilia and projects he has collected and worked on over the years. Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook celebrates everything from his collection of cycling jerseys to the inspiration he has found in his cycling heroes.
Available at Paul Smith, priced £29.95.
House Of Peroni
Peroni – the stylish man’s lager of choice – has returned to London for another of pop-up residency of eating, drinking and entertaining.

Prefer something a little more all’aperto? Take to the floating Negroni bar on the canal. Now that’s making an offer we cannot refuse.
The House of Peroni takes places at Proud East, East London, between May 25 and July 1.
Tickets available online at thehouseofperoni.com.
Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Sport
Do what you do best, our mothers taught us. It makes sense then that Molton Brown has taken its black pepper fragrance, the brand’s best-seller since 2002, and updated it for a new sport-focused range.
The original spicy notes have been bolstered with energising zesty citrus and put to work across four essential post-gym pieces. A mineral-rich muscle soak means no more smelling like a medicine cabinet when looking to soothe over-worked muscles. The winning line-up also contains a 4-in-1 bodywash, body scrub and deodorant.
Available at Molton Brown, priced from £18.
