Your car’s oil has been changed. Its second coat of wax has been applied. Your Wilson Phillips CD has been
polished. All that’s still needed for your fall road trip: these five awesome things.
The Cardigan for the Car
There’s a moment while driving your convertible when the weather starts to get a little chilly but
you’re not quite ready to put the top up. That’s when you’ll throw on this handsome shawl-collar
cardigan, with thick-textured knit ribbing and a leather patch on the chest. Where all good leather patches
A Bag for Your Road Vino
Picture it: you’re at some quaint roadside restaurant in the Berkshires. Dinner ends, and you’ve still
got killer wine open, requiring a sealed-air transport to preserve the flavor. That’s this. Plus it can
handle fluctuations in altitude. So yes, you can take it on that first date on Franconia Notch...
BRASS IN POCKET
A Vintage-y Compass for Your Journey
Nothing worse than being halfway to your secret granite cave in the White Mountains to celebrate the end of
summer when your phone’s GPS runs out of juice. Luckily, Acquire has these vintage-y brass compasses to
keep in your pocket. They’re basically the original GPS.
KIND OF CHEESY
Local Cheese. Mobile Fondue. Go.
In a few days, it’ll be September. And then it’ll be October (you can bet on it). Well, sometime around
then, Central Bottle will be packaging up travel cheese-fondue kits, featuring three artisanal Vermont
cheeses (Raclette, Rupert, Tarentaise). Good thing you keep a fondue pot on hand at all times.
LIKE A GLOVE
Driving Gloves Fit for Drive
Steering. When you drive like you do, it’s a full-contact sport. (White-knuckle turns. Aggressive lane
changes. Turn-signal employments.) Thus, the Army Barracks has some legit fighter-pilot black leather gloves
that work just as well for your Drive moments on the highway. Or Newbury Street.
