A Bennett Winch Leather Weekender was the prize awarded by The Rake Magazine for the best dressed driver
Cars and bags go hand in hand - that’s why we make some of the best bags for travelling with; whether you’re loading the boot for a day trip with the family, or laying your weekender on the passenger seat of a classic Jag bound for the countryside.
Simon Kidston's winning Lamborghini Coutach LP400
It’s our love for anything with wheels and an engine that drove us to partner up with Concours D’Elegance Suisse, the premier showcase for time defying classic cars, and The Rake magazine, one of our favourite monthly reads, to provide the best dressed driver of the weekend with a coveted gift: a Bennett Winch leather weekender.

The lucky recipient, Simon Kidston, was selected by The Rake after standing out from the crowd in his 1977 purple Lamborghini Countach LP400. It wasn’t just the sleek lines of his car that earnt him the accolade - classic styling courtesy of a Cesera Attolini suit carried a formal feel with a spread collar shirt and an seasonally bright tie, before gaining an entirely casual touch thanks to a patterned open collar shirt later in the day.

Racing is in Simon’s blood; his uncle was one of the infamous Bentley Boys, who spent the 20’s living as fast as they drove, in impeccable style. As a classic car collector and dealer, Simon searches the world looking for the finest examples of sought-after machines, and we’re delighted to be able to help him travel in a style that befits his impeccable taste in tailoring and motors.
