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.

CONFEDERATE G2 P51 COMBAT FIGHTER MOTORCYCLE
From $113,900, confederate.com
Confederate has been making badass motorcycles for more than 15 years, but this latest version ratchets the badassness up to unheard levels. The entire bike is machined from aerospace-grade aluminum and it produces crazy amounts of torque. The bike basically looks like a stealth bomber, right down to its carbon fiber rear disc, on two wheels. Only 61 of the motorcycles will be built, 31 “blonde” models with raw aluminum and 30 in anodized black.
OMEGA SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA 150M JAMES BOND WATCH
In terms of fictional style idols, it doesn’t get better than James Bond. From the Aston Martin cars to the Saville Row suits, Bond kicks ass in the sartorial and spycraft departments. To commemorate the upcoming Bond film SPECTRE, Omega is creating this beautiful limited edition watch. One of the coolest features of the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M is the oscillating weight on the back of the case that looks like the iconic Bond gun barrel design. The dial also has Bond’s coat of arms.
BOOKER’S “OVEN BUSTER BATCH” BOURBON
The latest limited edition of Booker’s famous bourbon is nicknamed the “Oven Buster Batch.” The name comes from the wife of founder Booker Noe, who once poured a bottle of her husband’s bourbon over a pork roast accidentally. The liquor’s high proof caused sparks and blew the doors of the oven open. The uncut and unfiltered bourbon is aged 6 years, 5 months, and 20 days and has notes of vanilla and oak. We suggest sipping it instead of cooking with it.
NIXON X PAUL RODRIGUEZ ESCAPE WALLET
Paul Rodriguez is one of the most stylish skaters ever to set foot on a board (which is part of the reason why he was the first skateboarder to ever get a signature Nike sneaker). That style is reflected in his signature wallet with Nixon. Inspired by the artist Haroshi, who makes sculptures out of repurposed skateboards, the inside of the bifold’s features lines similar to the plywood on a skate deck. The outside of the wallet is a sleek leather embossed to look like aligator skin.
