If any of your fall plans involve motoring around in a 1930s open-top roadster with the wind flapping at your driving scarf, you’ll be pleased to hear Bench & Loom has just launched a webshop-within-a-webshop dedicated to old-timey motoring.
Amongst the great finds are
roadster goggles, a leather racing helmet, some handsome driving gloves (number one on our Fall Must Haves) and, yes, even a silk driving scarf. Though the best of the lot might be this archival quarter-zip sweater from Dehen.
Because you can wear it while driving a car from any era.
When times are tough, people tend to cut back on things that aren’t absolutely essential. For instance, the market for
$500 tanning goggles is probably pretty shaky right now.
Mr. Ford. This was a bad idea.
