What Are Your Favorite Non-U.S. New Sources?


With Technology, Some BBC News is Available On Demand Using Voice Commands...

More than ever, to be sufficiently informed, one must use a variety of news sources.  This is true for everything from headlines to long form.

And if you believe that at least one or two sources should be non-U.S., which are your favorites?  And how do you access them?  Weekly magazines?  Newspapers?  Podcasts?  Home delivered?  Browser?  Well-stocked newsstand? Trips abroad?

 ...And so is the Always Helpful (For Drifting Off) Shipping Forecast.

For many, autumn is a time to replenish Tattersall Shirts and Moleskin Trousers.

Tattersall Shirts

Outside town, only one fabric is suitable for the countryside.  This was invented in 1890 by Henry Ernest Hollins, a Derbyshire mill owner... named after the patterned horse blankets used in Richard Tattersall's famous market.

Dukes Boots + Cordings - For Ladies

Photos by Salt Water New England
Cordings has a new collaboration with Dukes Boots.

Dukes - known for their high quality, Made in Spain boots and energetic designs - has teamed up this season with Cordings to offer this very smart Ladies Chelsea Boot.  The Italian suede boots, shown here in Tan, are also offered in Black.

The result is flattering and, almost surprisingly, quite comfortable.  These needed no breaking in (with the exception of a bit of a leather sole scratch-up), and they run true to size.

The Men's Covert Coat in 38R
The covert coat is a uniquely British item, with over a hundred year history.

And no one makes the covert coat better than Cordings, who has been offering such a garment since 1850.  The Victoria and Albert Museum has one of theirs in its permanent collection.
