Sipsmith London x Paul Smith

Collaborating with the fashion world for the first time, Sipsmith London has created a limited-edition bottle of their London Dry Gin with a redesign from none other than Sir Paul Smith. In place of their classic swan illustration is now Paul Smith’s iconic rainbow stripe, making it the perfect addition to any drinks trolley. £49.99. At Selfridges. selfridges.com


No Time To Die: The Making Of The Film

There’s always hype surrounding Bond. No Time To Die, the 25th film, is set for release next April and with Naomie Harris on board, Rami Malek joining as potential villain and Phoebe Waller-Bridge on the writing team, it’s going to be bigger (and better – big call but we’re confident) than ever. Now, we have an additional reason to get excited. As though the film’s release wasn’t enough, Titan Books has just announced its next collaboration with Eon Productions: No Time To Die: The Making Of The Film. Through exclusive photography, costumes and interviews, this lavish coffee-table book is set to take readers behind the scenes, delving into characters, locations and a fair few gadgets. Film prep, sorted. Keep your eyes peeled for more information. TBC



Apple TV+ might not have taken the world by storm yet, but amid the hot takes surrounding The Morning Show and See you may well have missed its MVP. Dickinson is a Hailee Steinfeld-helmed show that takes the life of the literary icon whose work wasn’t published under her own name in her lifetime and smashes it together with the many quirks of 21st modernity. Case in point, a Mitski soundtracked sex scene, millennial slang and some excellent fourth-wall breaking gags, “It’s like if you really want justice for all people in this country, you have to vote Republican!” apple.com


Saint Laurent x Leica x Paris Photo 2019

Saint Laurent Rive Droite has collaborated with iconic camera specialists Leica to create a unique exhibition of cameras in conjunction with Paris Photo 2019. Several models will be on show at the exhibition including the Leica 0 Series, Leica M3, Leica III G and the Leica M6 1984. Plus, rare collector’s items such as the Leica M-P10 2019, Q2 and D-Lux 7 will be presented and exclusively available to buy. Collaborations don’t get better than this. ysl.com


Bird In Hand syrah 2017

Looking for the perfect bottle to serve at your Christmas dinner party? Award-winning Bird In Hand has you covered. Their vivid medium-bodied syrah wine has aromatics of wild blackberries, violets and dried herbs, so it’s no surprise it has won the Australian Red trophy at the 2019 International Wine Challenge. The perfect addition to every gentlemen’s cellar. £19. At frontierfinewines.co.uk


Death Stranding

From Metal Gear Solid’s creator, the weird-ass auteur Hideo Kojima, comes a game where you play as an Amazon Prime delivery man in the post-apocalypse. Kind of. Death Stranding is pretty hard to explain beyond the fact it involves carrying abnormally large packages across vast landscapes without falling over. Because... that’s what passes for entertainment when you’re a very strange dude and have a multimillion pound development budget to make a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Honestly, we’re here for the madness. £49.99. At Game. game.co.uk


GQ Career Decisions podcast

Choosing a career isn’t easy. But insight always helps and that’s where GQ’s Career Decisions podcast comes in. Straight from the sofas of Farmyard Down, a cosy cottage nestled in the heart of Oxfordshire’s Soho Farmhouse, we’ll be speaking with the successful stars of GQ Heroes – asking them all about the decisions they’ve made to get where they are today. The first episode has just launched, within which our Style And Grooming Director Teo van den Broeke talks to Adwoa Aboah about modelling, activism and life lessons. Enlightening listening for the weekend, sorted (if we do say so ourselves). Listen to all the episodes at play.acast.com


Alice Made This x Jessica Bird collaboration

‘Tis the season to suit up and thanks to Alice Made This, you can do so with creative flair. The British jewellery brand has collaborated with Scottish artist and illustrator Jessica Rose Bird to create a distinctive collection. It’s inspired by British flowers, with Bird’s elegant illustrations engraved across a colourful series of cufflinks and pins. Our top pick is the Poppy Pattina cufflinks – ideal for your upcoming festivities. And a fact worth considering: 20 per cent of sales throughout November are being donated to the Royal British Legion. If you want to see the collection in person, you can head to Turnbull & Asser’s Christmas pop-up shop on Davies Street, London. From £210. alicemadethis.com


The Skateroom Vincent Van Gogh skateboards

Sure, skateboarding is a statement in itself, but why not go that extra mile with your roller friend? Enter The Skateroom and its eye-catching drop of Vincent Van Gogh designs. The post-impressionist painter’s famed piece "Almond Blossoms" has been emblazoned across a set of three boards, stamped with the brand’s logo and artist’s signature on the rear side. Constructed from Canadian maple wood, the trio of skateboards also comes with a wall mounting kit and protective case. Whether you’re in search of a stylish new ride or a super extra wall hanging, we’re confident this set will serve you well. £485. At mrporter.com


Fossil Hybrid Smartwatch HR Collider

Now here’s a new smartwatch with some charm. Fossil’s new Hybrid series combine an E-ink display – like the one you’d find on an Amazon Kindle e-reader – with actual watch hands so you can see the time at a glance. The result is akin to an old-school Pebble watch, only with an added echelon of charm and two weeks battery life. £189.99. fossil.com


Jeff Goldblum: I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This

There’s nothing like a good bit of Jeff Goldblum to (literally) jazz up your weekend. The star has just released a second album with his Mildred Snitzer Orchestra and the verdict is in: this collection of songs is exactly what we all need to conclude the decade. They’re all collaborative recordings on classic tracks; from Sharon Van Etten’s take on 'Let’s Face the Music and Dance' to Gregory Porter’s cover of 'Make Someone Happy' and Miley Cyrus’ lush arrangement of BB King’s 'The Thrill is Gone'. Oh – and Goldblum’s very own swooning lullaby of Bill Crosby’s 'Little Man, You’ve Had a Busy Day'. Play this album in good company, and the mood of your soiree will immediately be lifted. £9.99. apple.com


AirPods Pro

For those of you that have been living under a rock the past five days, this week Apple announced a new addition to their range of AirPods, the AirPods Pro. Noise-cancelling, sweat-resistant and featuring new silicone tips, GQ can confirm these earbuds are worthy of their fancy new moniker. We suggest you add them to your Christmas list asap. £249. apple.com
