TaylorMade Spider X Putter

While I’m not a great golfer, I’ve always been an absolutely horrible putter. That is until I picked up this bad boy. The Spider X is incredibly stable and has helped my move from 2.5 putts a hole to 1.8 – definitely worth a look if you’re struggling on the greens. (I use the TAG Heuer Golf App to score and track my rounds). – Jack

Succession

When it comes to entertainment, I’ve been known to have… opinions. Particularly critical ones. So you can imagine my surprise when I sat down to start HBO’s Succession, thinking it’d be nothing more than some idle Sunday night filler, only to end up burning through two seasons in under two nights. The plot schemes, the unexpected comedy, the scathing fictional take on Rupert Murdoch in real life – it’s all just *chef kiss*. – Garry

Pabst Blue Ribbon 99-Pack

Last year, Pabst Blue Ribbon issued an audacious challenge by unleashing a monstrous 99-pack of beer upon the world. Despite personally raising the issue with both my fellow countrymen and Victoria Bitter, the challenge sadly went by uncontested. Now, as a consolation prize/bitter reminder of what could have been, Pabst Blue Ribbon 99-beer packs are now available to purchase in Australia. – Garry

Canon EOS R

After 5 years and who knows how many shots on the Canon 6D, it was time for an upgrade. After much deliberation, we opted for the Canon EOS R over the 5D Mark IV, due to its body size, video capabilities, and some plain old mirrorless intrigue. While the new lens mount has taken some getting used to, the compact body is worlds apart from its ancient 6D sibling, making the job infinitely easier with a Live Viewfinder, monster ISO range, flip-out screen, and effortless performance. – James

Double Happiness Ping-Pong Table

If it wasn’t hard enough to focus after coming back into the office, it definitely is now with the purchase of our slick new TR Sports Double Happiness ping pong table. Its gorgeous matte surface and practical design make it both a pleasure to pong and easy to stow away when we need to get down to actual business. – John

Oscar Hunt Dinner Suit

Like most 30-year-olds, I’m smack bang in the midst of the ‘wedding era’ of my life (COVID pending). With black-tie invites coming thick and fast, I thought it was high time to I added a quality dinner suit to my wardrobe. The team at Oscar Hunt measured me up and six weeks later, I’m the proud owner of an incredibly well-fitted black-tie suit. 10/10 would recommend. – Jack

Oscar Hunt Seersucker Suit

While Jack opted for a timeless dinner suit, I took the opportunity to indulge in something truly left field, selecting a featherweight Loro Piana seersucker cloth in an adventurous brown and blue stripe. It sounds ludicrous, but the end result has astonished me after second-guessing myself for months. As a full suit, it is far more subtle than I could have ever imagined and as a seperate, the jacket will add undeniable sartorial flair to my spring or summer wardrobe. Adding to my joy is a perfectly fitted shirt in a white oxford cloth – a complete triumph from the team at Oscar Hunt. – James

Lofted

Brought to you by the golfing legends at Caddie Magazine, Lofted is one of the coolest coffee table books I’ve come across in a long time. Featuring stunning imagery from some of the most remote and impressive golf courses in the world, this is one book that won’t look out of place in any man-cave. – John
