The T&A Christmas Wish list
Between the impending work deadlines, last minute Christmas shopping and office parties, the winter break really couldn’t come any sooner. In this final stretch, one might be forgiven for spending time wondering what Father Christmas has brought you this festive season. Thus, with the countdown to Christmas Day well and truly on, we decided to take you through the top picks on our wish list.
Mr. Michael Searle, Jermyn Street Store Manager
“You still have to be prepared for the winter sun. These Calthorpe sunglasses in a dark turtle shade from our neighbours, Cubitts, are ideal and really complement the deeper colour hues of the winter season wardrobe.”
“I prefer on-ear headphones as opposed to earbuds, and these wireless headphones look great and sound even better. I like the sleek chrome and black design, and the freedom to be able to listen to music on my commute without being entwined in cables.”
“I received this single malt as a gift a few years ago and was pleasantly surprised by its mellow drinkability. Needless to say, it didn’t last long! A replenishment is long overdue.”
Mr. Shaun Gordon, Designer at Turnbull & Asser
“Grooming is a special ritual amongst gentlemen, and it can complement elegant attire marvellously. I enjoy the luxury experience of being shaved by an expert of the craft.”
“Mr. Tom Ford once said, “Dressing is a form of good manners,” and therefore one must also smell pleasant. Penhaligon’s Bayolea is a favourite of mine, with woody base notes followed by hints of citrus. You can also have a message engraved on the side of the bottle!”
“Dressing elegantly, for me, is all about the subtle details and these cufflinks are perfect. This classic T&A button style is a best-seller, and it’s easy to see why. The natural mother of pearl is encased in sterling silver, and we have just released the option of monogramming which adds a nice, personal touch.”
Mr. James Cook, Davies Street Store Manager
“The Chukka boot (known as the Desert boot to some) from Crockett & Jones are made from high-quality leather and suede, and the British craftsmanship of the brand is second to none.”
“A real treat for me would be a nice, large stilton – my favourite cheese – enjoyed with a glass of port and perhaps a cracker or two.”
“The cold temperatures mean I need a thicker layer for the winter season, and our cotton-cashmere is a good start. The blend of high-quality materials (15% cashmere and premium cotton) are still lightweight, but are soft and warm against the skin.”
From everyone at Turnbull & Asser, we wish you a very Merry Christmas.
