Random facts about Monday: there are 20% more recorded heart attacks on Mondays than any other day; Monday is the best day to buy a car, more time with the salesperson often leads to a better deal; statistically, Monday is the day that it’s most likely for the US stock market to rise rather than fall. All interesting facts, though we’re a little sceptical of them. One fact that you should all already know, and one that we know is true, is that Monday marks the release of OPUMO’s top 5 items to drop this week. This time around we’re taking a stylish approach to running your errands. A Day’s March, CQP, Ally Capellino, Baltic Watches and Copenhagen Bike Company will get you out of the house and ticking items off your to-do list in record time.
Made from 100% organic cotton, A Day’s March’s new-season Oxford shirt lacks any detailing. The Swedish brand has taken one more step towards finding the essence of functional, great-looking shirting. With no button-down collar, button placket or pocket, we’re forced to focus only on the cut and material. The off-black hue is an unusual colour which is sure to add a new angle to your wardrobe.
An extremely strong season from CQP has positioned them at the top of our sneaker lists. We’ve got our eye set on this pair of All Green Racquet SR Sneakers because of their essential Autumn colourway. Deep green premium Italian suede partners with a 100% calf leather lining and arch support for luxurious comfort. Be sure to protect the suede before taking your new wheels for a test drive, though, puddles won’t be kind to the plush material.
You’ll be pushed to find any brand as consistently great at Ally Capellino in any field, and when it comes to the label’s speciality – bags – there’s nobody we’d rather wear. Featuring a leather base for strength and protection, this backpack has a pocket for any eventuality: laptops, wires, iPads, drinks, sandwiches or a night away. Waxed cotton means that your things will be dry in the weather that we can expect over the coming months.
Your greatest weapon when you’re on a tight schedule. Baltic Watches’ Bicompax 001 is a two-register chronograph boasting a stripped-back design in silver, black and white. Create a bit of competition by timing yourself with extreme accuracy as you run your errands, staying on track with flair.
What’s a day running errands without a trusty steed on which to do it? Copenhagen Bike Company deal in lightweight city bikes, perfect for cruising. The three-gear system is ideal for city use and the raised handlebars mean that you can ride with comfort and good posture. We love the deep blue hue of the CR-MO tube frame in contrast to the white-wall tyres.
