Art Comes First X The Kooples Hat


I haven't actually been able to get my hands one of these bad boys yet but I've been a long-time fan of the boys of Art Comes First. They collaborated with The Kooples with a classic hat creation that inhabits modern elements with vintage undertones.

Braun BN0171 (stone grey)


The Braun BN0171 is a watch that commands little attention with its minimalist aesthetic. Different than Braun’s other watches, this particular model features a ceramic bracelet and a slightly larger face. These attributes make this watch suitable for any occasion, formal or casual.

Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast


Once part of 90s' British comedy duo Lee and Herring, for the last few years Richard Herring has been badly interviewing comedians on this free podcast and making me laugh out loud while I'm on the Tube. If Serial doesn't have enough jokes for you, try this.

frank clegg briefcase


This sturdy bag will hold all your daily essentials with style as you cram your way into the crowded train, and walk down the streets of the city and into your office.

MATCHA LOVE


Is matcha tea a new trend? I don’t know – I just know I love it. I’m seeing it more everywhere, but a matcha latte from Matcha Love has my devotion. Although these small cafés can only be found in California and have very few locations, I’m sure you can find something similar near you.

Slow Club Christmas TV


It's that time of year again: the time I play this on repeat while wearing a snowman jumper. Heartwarmingly sweet, and not a patronising lyric about Africa in sight.

Richard Yates - Eleven Kinds of Loneliness


There was always going to be a book on here. If you've read Revolutionary Road you'll know what to expect, but at their peak these stories of frustration, isolation and suburbia reach its malcontent depths. Terrifying in their mundanity.

Benjamins Shoes


These hand stitched cashmere shoes are nothing less than incredible. A comfortable shoe with a timeless style appropriate for a night out, trip to the library or just lounging around at home.

Do It Now! (Parchment Journal)


I've always been all over the place with my organization and time management but to-do lists are usually my go to. The Do It Now! parchment journal takes to-do lists to a whole new level. The parchment paper stock is light weight and gives the journal a weathered look that feels great to the touch and looks better with age.

Weight Vases


Thai designer Decha Archjananun has made a series of vases with concrete bases to hold water and wire frames to support flower stems. The concrete parts sit within each steel frame and weigh the pieces down to prevent them toppling over. Called Weight Vases, the collection comprises different shapes for different types of flower arrangement.

Rega RP1 Turntable


This multi-award winning turntable is designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point. The minimalist design of the RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components throughout ensure this amazing product will deliver unrivalled performance for the price. Excellent build quality, reliability and the ease of use of this‚ ‘plug and play’ design, combine to make a product guaranteed to offer a lifetime of musical enjoyment. The only thing entry level about the RP1  the price.

LEONARD COHEN


This man’s music has seen me through so much this past year, how can I not recommend him? The songs I keep returning to: Famous Blue Raincoat and Chelsea Hotel #2.

HALF PRICE BOOKS


There are many cool little indie bookstores in the San Francisco Bay I can recommend, but when it comes to simply wanting to purchase a bunch of used books at one stop, you really can’t beat Half Price Books. It’s amazing how well-stocked their clearance section is with quality fiction and award-winning authors, and not just unreadable leftovers usually found in clearance aisles.

FOX CITY NEWS


Tucked away in the heart of the Financial District in San Francisco, this editorial boutique gives a variety of choices for the avid reader – from your favorite magazine to your daily newspaper.

unknown pleasures by joy division


It’s one of those older albums you listen to once in a while, but it’s been on heavy rotation on my playlist lately.
