The perfect gift for all boys who have grown up, but preserved their inner child..   There are only two notable differences between toys for little boys and toys for grown-up boys: the toys get bigger with age—and more expensive. Matchbox cars give way to high-end sports cars, model boats become motorboats and sailing yachts, and the plastic wristwatch turns into a Swiss chronograph with a perpetual calendar and minute repeater. The Toys for Men series has always stayed abreast of this male drive to play; in the latest volume, we present the ultimate wish list, a selection of the most exclusive, most innovative, and most luxurious toys that men with money can buy. Of course, the list includes the classic male fantasies of Lear jets, mega- yachts, and super sports cars—the truly giant and great things that move men in the air, on water, or on land. But it also includes the little gadgets—from headphones and wristwatches to SLR cameras—that make tech-loving men’s hearts beat a little faster. We also include the vices that speak to connoisseurs, like that special bottle of French wine, Scottish whiskey, or Cuban cigars. And last but not least, we include one of the greatest luxuries of all: having a product tailored to you and you alone, bespoke-style. But we’re not just talking about custom- tailored suits. Cars, golf clubs, skis, nearly everything today can be customized to suit your particular tastes. If you’re searching for the ultimate toys for the gentleman who has everything, you’ll hit pay dirt here. Because as philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche already knew, “There is a child hidden in every man: and it wants to play.”

Great Angling Disasters is a wonderful collection of fishy tales from the past 200 years that will have the reader caught hook, line and sinker. Stories of record breakers that got away, to boats that sank, rods that broke and pike and salmon that ran amoke. It is the ultimate chronicle of those less than triumphant days on the riverbank. The perfect gift for any keen fisherman whether coarse, game or seafishing. “I hooked a salmon on the Bandon at Cork, but I’d been fishing for trout and had on the lightest tackle imaginable. Three flies on the thinnest gut. As soon as the salmon took me I knew I was in trouble but, after his first rush, I thought I had a chance. He shook his head, made a second run and leaped clear of the water. Ten pounds I thought. The fight continued. I saw his silver flank in mid-stream. He was tiring, but then, unbelievably, I saw the ghostly shadow of another salmon just behind the hooked fish. Almost at once I realised what was about to happen – and happen it did. The second fish took one of my other flies and set off in the opposite direction to the first fish. Miraculously, for a few seconds I was aware of both fish still on the line, then, inevitably, they were gone. No one I spoke to in the long years after that incident could ever recall a similar occurrence.” Richard Greene, It’s Later Than You Think, 1888

What an incredible milestone in the history of the sports car: in spring 2017, the Porsche 911 was made a millionaire. That is the number of models emblazoned with the legendary “9-1-1” produced by Porsche since 1963. What is the definition of the 911, of a Porsche?—the language of form and technical expertise. It is the ultimate sports car. Throughout the generations, every single 911 has fascinated owners and spectators alike. Even when a particular 911 series does not resemble its predecessor, the form, sound, and performance remain inspirational—the emotions are always on board! Dreams come alive, and not just for the guys. A Porsche driver is endowed with taste, technical prowess, a vision of the future, and the trappings of material success. The 356 laid the foundation for the myth of the Porsche, and it also formed the basis for models like the American Roadster, the 550, and the 718 RS 60 Spyder. Loyal companions include family members like the Boxster, Cayman, Panamera, Macan, and even the Cayenne. Out of the running, though unforgotten, are Porsche models like the 924, 944, or even 928. Motor racing cultivated the myth from 1951 until today. Decades later the names 904, 917, 962, and currently, the 919 Hybrid, are still legends. Porsche Milestones presents the history of Porsche with elegant photos and insightful texts. Small nuggets and anecdotes—largely unheard of—occasionally shine through. A spellbinding read for those inspired by the joy of a Porsche.

The perfect balance for those searching for a bit of peace and quiet and an outdoor activity: fly fishing combines connecting with nature, the defining of personal aesthetics, and physical activity. The Flyfisher shows the most beautiful fishing spots, self-tied flies, and the right equipment for this increasingly popular lark of leisure. Equal parts outdoor meditation and escapism, fly fishing appeals to a diverse audience. The dedicated focus on the task at hand makes daily life fade away and the fly fisher is free to connect with the soothing sounds of the water while awaiting a catch. From rod to reel to weighted line, the art of fly fishing is rife in details. Filled with photos of anglers and their habitats, the craftsmanship of tying flies, and expert discussions on the right gear to wear to wade into a favorite river, The Flyfisher is the first comprehensive discussion of this multifaceted sport. It is as much about the triumphant catch as the craft of building bait paired with the art of appreciating the overall experience as well as the method.
