1962 Rolex Submariner
Okay, so this is not one to buy ‘right now’ unless you happen to be sitting on a pile of spare cash. Launched in 1962, a year before the Daytona, the Rolex Submariner was knocking about before a man even set foot on the moon and it’s just landed at Xupes, a pre-owned luxury goods retailer with a bigger bounty of treasure than Tutankhamun. Bank balance, we have a problem.

Now we don’t want to go all eco-warrior on you (and we certainly aren’t going to start suggesting you wear dress shirts made from burlap), but there’s no getting away from how cool the latest release from Caran d’Ache is. The Swiss pen maker has updated its version of the ballpoint pen, using the metal from old Nespresso coffee capsules. Sustainable and stylish.

So much so that Adidas has launched the Sobakov: a streetwear version of the Predator Precision football boot, rendered in a stretchy black knit and finished with swerving stripes and a gum sole.
Cos Khaki Padded Slim Fit Jacket
Another one to buy now and save for the cooler months. Khaki is an easy to wear autumnal hue, while the weighty wool and padded fit of this slim-fit jacket will keep you just warm enough to take part in typical outside autumn activities like crunching leaves underfoot or, you know, complaining it’s too cold.
Converse Sports Duffle Bag
Cross-body bags are great and everything, but if you want something you can fit more than scrunched up tissues and sweet wrappers in, look to the duffle. And so we give you this dazzler of a sack, which you could easily cram a weekend abroad into. Bye-bye, bumbag.
Pall Mall Barbers Pomade
You might be a sweaty mess one degree away from spontaneously combusting, but you can at least fool people into thinking you have your shit together with your hair.
