Simon Emmett p.124 Frequent contributor Emmett’s subjects for Esquire covers include Noel Gallagher, Tony Blair, Cara Delevingne, Paul Pogba and Sir Michael Caine. This month, the photographer and film-maker shot Benicio Del Toro in Los Angeles. “I was a fan before and I’m a bigger fan now,” he says. “He has a quiet confidence: he didn’t come across as having anything to prove. Cool, kind, charming, charismatic. The real deal.” Emmett’s work also appears in The New York Times and Vanity Fair.Will Self “I’ve been a staunch opponent of luxury in the past,” says the novelist, broadcaster and Esquire editor at large, “because my contention is it can never, ever, ever be luxurious enough. Cliveden managed to assuage my inner Prince Charles by figuratively spreading myrrh paste on my gold…

editor’s letter

The editor. (Prior to ruling himself out of this summer’s World Cup on moral grounds)ON 14 MAY 1938, THE ENGLAND FOOTBALL team played Germany at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. It was five years into Adolf Hitler’s rule of the country, just two months since the German annexation of Austria. Prominently positioned in the crowd of 110,000 were Rudolf Hess, Joseph Goebbels and Hermann Goering. As the German national anthem played before kick-off, the England players lined up and raised their arms in a Nazi salute. The order for them to do so had come from the Foreign Office, which claimed to be acting in the interests of Anglo-German relations; this, our schoolboy history reminds us, was the period of appeasement of Hitler, under Neville Chamberlain.The players had protested against…

self examination

MY BROTHER WAS IN HOSPITAL LAST WEEK for something called catheter ablation. He was under a general anesthetic for 10 hours, during which catheter-borne electrical gizmos were stuffed up the arteries leading from his groin to his heart. When they got there, the gizmos began zapping (or “ablating” as it’s known technically) the cells in his heart that have run amok, and are causing it to beat irregularly. My brother has been suffering from chronic cardiac arrhythmia for a number of years, and it’s a testimony to just how stoical he is that he takes this “procedure” (as it’s predictably euphemised) in his stride. I very much doubt I’d be as sanguine: indeed, the thought of anything at all going wrong with my ticker fills me with what one of…

man & boy

AT ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME TIME, a few weeks before Christmas last year, Sam got into Jesus and Kitty, quite by chance, got into the Romans. You know, the way that kids get into things. I had long worried about where my children were going to get their notion of God from. I was brought up in a Jewish family but without religion, Sam and Kitty attend a school with agnosticism at the very heart of its ethos and my wife thinks mostly about dresses and shoes. But I think God is important, whether you believe in him or not, and that it is best for kids to start off with some sort of faith as a basis for their developing moral code, which they can later retain or reject…

it takes a big man to wear a small watch watchmakers scale down for 2018

The big news in watches? They’re getting smaller. In a trend that was perhaps inevitable, the pendulum has swung the other way. After years of manhole cover-sized diving watches on the one hand, and blinged-out chronographs on the other, a discernible direction at this year’s Swiss watch fairs was towards smaller case sizes. It’s a throwback that makes sense; historically most watches measured under 40mm in diameter. The benefits are manifold: a smaller watch is more versatile, dressier, packs tons of charm and above all chimes with the times, where showpieces don’t need to shout.Stainless steel Calibre 39-52 39mm Automatic, £5,300, by Glashütte OriginalBeige linen suit, £790, by Gieves & Hawkes.

we asked the fashion editor of the ft what to wear this summer.

office shirt and loose grey summer suit with (again) sandals at Louis Vuittonnavy boxy-cut oversized blazer with faded jeans and brogues at BalenciagaGentlemen, what will you be wearing this summer? A cursory glance at the catwalk offers all kind of propositions. You might want to slip into a Prada boiler suit, for example. Just the thing to make that post-work transition to the pub. Or, perhaps, the jazzy, metallic jacket is calling you — choose from gold and shiny at Berluti or Dolce & Gabbana, or, at Armani, burnished bronze. How about a fringed and hooded quilt coat, as seen at Craig Green? Too directional? Fatherly types will no doubt be taken by Balenciaga’s triple-layered trousers, a garment made in banded denim and leather, to be worn belted nice and…
