samuel: things i like right now

things i like right now by samuel sparrow of sparrow and co

  1. Lavenham Denston Brown Jacket – These British made jackets are made in a tiny village in Suffolk called Lavenham. Initially intended for the equestrian world, they have amassed a huge following in recent years. Their jackets are beautifully made and now come in a range of fashion led colours and finishes.
  2. Pomadour Hair – When I look at James Dean I have serious hair envy
  3. Ray Ban Wayfarer 5184’s Dark Havana Glasses
  4. Diesel watch DZ1506 – I was given this watch as a 21st birthday present from my wife. It is one of my fondest processions.
  5. Citroen DS Pallas – is simply the most beautiful car in the world. Roland Barthes famously commented it looked ‘as if it had fallen from the sky.’
  6. Hunter Argyle Wellington Boots – These boots are built to last. I keep an emergency pair in the boot of my car.
  7. Geo F Trumper Sandalwood Cologne – To me fragrances are so emotive…it reminds me of my grandfathers shaving soap and old leather bound books. It’s made by London barber and perfumer Geo F Trumper
  8. My iPhone. I often get dirty look from wife and accusations that I love my iPhone more than her. The truth is I run my whole business with the help of my iPhone. It’s got me out of a few pickles and I’d simply be lost without it.
  9. Jean Prouvé - he worked as a designer, craftsman, manufacturer, architect, teacher and engineer. He was a true multi-disciplined artists and creator. His Compass table is truly iconic.
  10. My wife… Laura Sparrow. I’d be lost without her. This is a portrait I gave Laura when we got married, it’s by American artist Brooke Olivares
  11. British Seaside – Beach huts, fish and chips and a bracing wind…you can’t beat the British seaside

  1. I have wanted a Citroen DS Pallas since I was a kid. Any time I drive past one I secretly think, ‘there’s my car!’, whether it be the station wagon version, a two tone beaut or that clapped out red one that lives near Rafiki’s. A year or two ago I found a black and white two tone CONVERTIBLE one advertised on Auto Trader! I almost died. <3

  2. there’s a mint condition one in stellenbosch that’s owned by an old couple who have been driving it for decades. i see them sometimes, always driving together as they have been for years. it’s so amazing.
