editor’s letter

Because while mine was a perfectly nice example of the genre, his was something else—made to his specification, designed precisely to his whim. The result of many years of trial and error, design and redesign, it was a bespoke, slimline wallet with a particular technical flourish all its own that allowed cards to be extracted easily while remaining secure at all times; subtle but sophisticated.It got me thinking: Commissioning anything, whether a suit, a car, a whisky, or a watch, is as much an exercise in censorship as it is in expression. It’s knowing what to leave out as much as what to include. And it’s why the bespoke process at its best is usually very much a conversation, a continued dialogue between client and crafter until two ideas…

Maserati Levante GTS 1 NEXT-LEVEL LEVANTES MASERATI LEVANTE GTS AND TROFEO “Italian marque Maserati continues its off-road renaissance with new GTS and Trofeo variants of the Levante (starting at $119,180 and $169,980, respectively). Set for delivery this month, both carry an enhanced 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 that turns out 538 ft lbs of torque. The top-tier Trofeo, however, runs with 590 horses (compared to the 550 hp GTS) and can reach more than 187 mph—further proof to me that this is the Golden Age of the SUV.” —VIJU MATHEW 2 RETRO REDUX CORNELIANI’S ARCHIVE COLLECTION “Mining the archives for inspiration is nothing new.

The so-called compteur de tierces (or “thirds timer”) measured events to the sixtieth of a second. Not only was this the most precise instrument of its time, but also proof that Moinet’s invention predated the first chronograph by nearly half a century.Moinet’s compteur de tierces is now hailed as the world’s first chronograph, though the horological pioneer is equally famous for his clocks, which have been displayed in such collections as those of the Louvre and White House. After the British burned down the Presidential Mansion in 1814, James Monroe bought a gilt-bronze table clock to help furnish the…
