Taking a Backseat

In our ongoing pursuit of properly equipping you for summer road trip season, here’s an indispensable item from the tie gurus at Pierrepont Hicks and their fellow Minnesotans at Faribault Woolen Mill Co.

It’s a utilitarian-size backseat blanket that’s made from a sturdy wool, but instead of your typical woodsy look, it’s woven in bright beach-bonfire-appropriate stripes. As the name suggests, you’ll want to have this handy whenever four-wheeled wanderlust strikes.

Most importantly, it’s just big enough to share.
