Right now, we want a wool Pendleton hat and more
Time Out Chicago’s must-haves of the moment also include the Mutewatch, Jeffrey Campbell boots and more.
We still have at least a month before fashion hats are replaced by knit caps. Our object of affection for early fall: this wool Pendleton hat with a cross-stitched leather brim. $62 at pendleton-usa.com.
Between the sheer back, vintage floral fabric and ’40-esque swing fit of Frei Designs’ fall collection tank, we’re sold. $165 at Post 27, 1819 W Grand Ave (312-829–6122, post27store.com).
Don’t let the minimalist design of this Mutewatch confuse you. It looks like a simple rubber bracelet, but tap the gadget and the screen lights up with the time. Plus, it works as an alarm clock with a built-in motion sensor that registers your movement and automatically adjusts the strength of its vibration alerts. $259 at mutewatch.com.
Sure, you could stick a pin in a map to show off your worldly travels, but we’re fans of this Where I’ve Been Scratch Map. Just scratch off the brassy sheen (as you’d do with a lottery ticket) to track all the places you’ve gone. The other side is blank so you can record your flight paths. $24 at fredflare.com.
