To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
BELAIRE ROSE FANTOME
Until now it was tough to be a true “Black Bottle Boy” unless you were popping corks in a club, or you were Rick Ross. But now the Belaire Rosé Fantome, with its bottle that lights up at the push of a button, is available in a 750ml bottle as part of a limited edition release. The refreshing French rosé has a fruity bouquet but isn’t too sweet.
ASUS ZENBOOK PRO UX501
If you’re looking for a Windows alternative to the Apple’s MacBook Pro, this is what you want. It has the sleek aluminum body Mac lovers are used to, plenty of power thanks to a 2.6GHz quad-core i7 processor, and a stunning 4K display. Oh yeah, it’s also $700 less than a comparable MacBook Pro.
The perfect playlist can really change the dynamic of your run, which is why Adidas teamed up with Spotify to create Adidas Go. The app uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to calculate a runner’s pace and then selects music with a corresponding beats per minute based on your preferences. Once your run is over you’ll be able to track your route and see the new songs you listened to.
TRUE WETSUITS BY QUIKSILVER
As surfing has risen in popularity, more and more guys are trading their morning run for morning waveriding. So why waste time after your surf changing into “work clothes?” Quiksilver has made a proper wet-suit out of 2mm neoprene. It comes complete with a water repellant shirt and waterproof tie. There’s even a tuxedo version if you have to be somewhere formal when you get out of the water. Take a look at these suits in action.
SIR BY MARIO TESTINO
Better known for the images he captured of female icons like Princess Diana and Kate Moss, photographer Mario Testino has also taken plenty of incredible pictures of stylish men as well. The best of those are collected in this new limited-edition book, featuring more than 300 photos, many of which have never been published before. This will instantly class up your coffee table.
