Landmarks from the Carolinas to Maine That You Can Actually Wear

By Najib Benouar ·
Ah, the fall road trip.

It’s a time-honored tradition that conjures visions of leaves turning vibrant colors, flannel shirts and selvage denim...

In fact, if you were to map out a road trip up the Eastern Seaboard from, say, the Carolinas up to Maine, you could not only do some solid leaf-peeping, but also outfit yourself for said trip...
