Vintage racecars inspired the new Bamford & Sons Concours d’Elegance (www.bamfordandsons.com) series, a line of accessories that includes weekenders ($1,294 to $14,645) and a $4,070 backgammon set made from calf leather rendered in black and Ferrari red. The British luxury-goods company also recently introduced its Wooton line, a more rugged-looking collection of bags and small items ($480 to $1,294) made from unlined suede and leather in shades of cream and brown.
