James Fayed, the owner of Jermyn Street's bespoke shirtmaker Turnbull & Asser has chosen his favourite Autumn/Winter pieces from the vast assortment of sartorial menswear and luxury accessories on The Rake. Enjoy!
I really love the tradition of Schott leathers. It's a great American company with an equally amazing and long-standing tradition, founded in 1913. A jacket for a lifetime. Staying on the shearling jackets, this version by Chapal? Just wow. One of my absolute favourites. It's a great reproduction of a classic and is incredibly warm - a real statement piece for when the winter weather rolls in. I'm also a big fan of classic styles, too, and Valstar execute minimal silhouettes incredibly well.
We're great friends and neighbours with Floris, one of the world's most renowned perfumers, and one of the oldest - established in 1730. For context, we've been around for quite some time, but our Jermyn Street flagship came about in 1903! I had such a wonderful time collaborating with them on our 71/72 Eau de Parfum, inspired by our Jermyn Street store. I absolutely had to include this in my edit. Their chrome and rose gold shaving set is also a beautiful piece of kit for your bathroom. Keeping with British heritage and luxury, the black and silver hip flask is probably not the first accessory you think of when you think about Ettinger, but it's the perfect thing to keep close by - you never know when you'll need a cheeky sip!
Matte black and burnt orange with gold fixings - what an incredible colour combination. If you're looking for a motorcycle helmet that's timeless (and matches with the shearling jackets I mentioned prior) this one by Hedon ticks all the boxes. I love utility wear and products that stand the test of time in both style and substance. I have to shout out Drake's - I love what they're doing. This red animal print scarf is definitely something I would be happy to wear, whatever the occasion. Bennett Winch is amazing British brand that make immaculately-crafted leather bags. They're very new but I know they'll be around for a long time. We've really enjoyed being their neighbours in Mayfair, and were proud to have hosted their first-ever New York pop-up at The Turnbull Townhouse in Manhattan, earlier this year.
