GQ (Australia) - - THE SOURCE -

1. EB­BETS FIELD FLAN­NELS ‘PORT­LAND BEAVERS’ CAP, AP­PROX. $64* Look­ing as good as it did when cre­ated in 1957, this sets you apart from the New York Yan­kees pack in the gym.

2. ADIDAS ‘STAN SMITH’ SNEAK­ERS, $140 Hail­ing from 1971, this ’06 ten­nis shoe has re­ceived a sub­tle up­date with gold foil. Game, set and match.

3. CEL­SIUS LEATHER SKIP­PING ROPE, $29.99, AT REBEL SPORT The leather cord is pure his­toric box­ing gym and sings in mo­tion, while the moulded rubber grips mean they won’t slipe when you have a sweat on.

4. LEATHER HEAD RUGBY BALL, AP­PROX. $200 The more you use this for your pick-up games of touch footy, the bet­ter look­ing the leather will get.

5. FRED PERRY ‘REIS­SUES MADE IN ENG­LAND’ BOMBER, AP­PROX. $360 Orig­i­nally de­signed in the 1950s, the black/ cham­pagne colour scheme is on point in this ideal warm up/cool down jacket, which dou­bles as streetwear.

6. WE­GENER ‘9’4” NOSE RIDER’, $3500, AT THE SHOP NEXT DOOR The oiled wooden fin­ish to this beauty is quicker than any other surf­board sur­face, mean­ing you can hang ten faster than any­one can shout ‘yi­i­i­i­i­i­i­i­i­iew’.

7. EB­BETS FIELD FLAN­NELS ‘IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS ABC’S’ SWEAT­SHIRT, AP­PROX. $115 Great for cooler weather out­door train­ing and sport­ing a bal­ance be­tween min­i­mal­ism and per­son­al­ity.

8. LEATHER HEAD MEDICINE BALL, AP­PROX. $510** At five ki­los it pro­vides enough of a load for high-rep ex­er­cises or just func­tions as a piece of dé­cor.
