Efficiency and expediency are given top marks in this point in history marked by the fast-paced and super-charged–often at the expense of individual personality. To sit at the wheel of a top-caliber car, then, is its own sort of defiance. Fitted with the best of modern technology while also putting a premium on design, such a vehicle speaks of a lifestyle that puts equal weight on getting where you need to go and doing it in style.
Regardless of your destination, truly living up to the lifestyle also extends beyond the car that you drive. The likes of a hardy pipe, a fine wallet, or a wristwatch that’s sure to withstand the elements are modern-day manifestations of a nearly bygone era when people took their time about where to go and how to do it. – Arianna Lim
