1 | The 67 best men's shops in Britain
This country is full of great shops for men. No, not Homebase, we're talking about the independents. The designer retailers, the bespoke tailors, the gun makers, the taxidermists, the booksellers. There are a whole host of brilliant places to spend your money in England, and we've searched to find the best of them. Do you know where to go to buy a stuffed antelope? How about a one off aftershave? Or a vintage watch, bottle of wine or rare book? Read our guide, find out and don't spend any money this weekend until you've finished it.
2 | How to get people to listen to you
Recently published research suggested that when you speak, people judge you on three things: gravitas, communication and appearance. And of those, gravitas matters the most. But what if you're Frank Spencer, can you obtain gravitas? The good news is, that yes, you can, and Caroline Goyder, author of the suitably titled Gravitas tells us how. Sample tip: ditch Powerpoint.
3 | Driving the Mille Miglia
Once a year, Italy holds a car rally like nothing else, anywhere in the world. Entrants must drive 1,000 miles in four days, using cars made pre-1957. They don't shut the roads, they don't ask you to slow down and they don't like it when you dawdle. But this isn't a Gum Ball rally for granddads. This is a test of driving skill and endurance that fluctuates between breakneck speed and beautiful processions. Esquire Weekly drives in the most elegant race in the world.
4 | The brutally honest Viv Albertine
As the lead guitarist of The Slits, Viv Albertine has seen and done much. Part of the inner sanctum of punk (although she hates that word) she's written what Amy Raphael calls a "fearless account of sex, drugs and life on the cultural frontline." She talks to us about Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious, and, strangely, Aswad. Witness her brutal honesty for yourself in our extract from her book, Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys.
5 | Hollywood's got a problem
And it's not a little one, argues Kevin Maher. Two very high-profile lawsuits and a documentary lifting the lid on sex abuse rings in Tinsel Town could be about to trigger Hollywood's own Yewtree moment, engulfing industry heavyweights in the worst kind of scandal.
