As a stepping stone to their full bespoke tailoring service, this year Canvas by
J.H. Cutler (based in Sydney) has launched a Made To Measure tailoring service. What distinguishes their service from others is being fitted by bespoke tailors Sam Hazelton and Carl Sciarra, with great flexibility in jacket construction ranging from soft tailoring to structured tailoring, and exclusively handmade in Tuscany, Italy. In addition to tailoring, CANVAS by J.H. Cutler offers custom made luxury silk and cashmere ties, leather belts and a full range of luxury accessories and care products. www.jhcutler.com
SHAVE WITH VALOR
Born from an obsession for organic, natural soaps, Valors’ beginnings were humble: selling at local markets in the Byron Bay hinterland. Their products were a hit and, nowadays, their men’s shaving and beard products are available in a growing range of speciality stores (including Townsville’s Renegade Handmade) and online. Try their organic shaving soap ($34), complete with custom stainless steel shave bowl, and pure boar bristle shaving brush ($22). www.shavewithvalor.com
Inspired by Ralph Lauren’s passion for cars and racing, Polo Red Extreme is designed for the man who pushes limits to the edge. The bold, masculine Oriental Gourmand scent combines vibrant blood orange, rich black coffee essence and black ebony wood. $149 for 125ml.
With a minimalistic approach based on the 1960s, Fossil’s new Townsman dress watch ($229) has a symmetrical style, drawing attention to its vaulted hands, two-eye chronographs and bold blue dial. www.fossil.com.au
The fastest ever mass-produced stand-up jet ski, the all-new 2017 Kawasaki SX-R ($14,499), is now available through Kawasaki dealerships across Australia. It’s powered by a four-stroke In-Line Four that puts out twice as much power as its two-stroke predecessor (800 SX-R). It also enables a top speed more than 25 per cent faster than the 800 SX-R. www.kawasaki.com.au
