Fellow Products’ unobtrusive Clyde kettle is easy to transport and pour thanks to a long, bent handle. Its wide-mouthed “magic” spout holds steam until the kettle is tilted to pour, allowing it to escape naturally, and away from your hand, rather than all at once. Thoughtfully, a harmonic whistle, rather than a haunting screech, sounds once the water inside is boiling. The kettle comes with a max capacity of 1.7 L, and its stainless steel exterior is electric- and gas-stove safe.

With leather and suede laces and label fobs, these Wallabees are available from size seven to 13 and are made in Italy.

Handmade in Japan by a master milliner that studied hat-making under legendary designer Jean Barthet, this natural-hued wool cap comes equipped with antimicrobial features and a unique softness—afforded by a process that uses untreated material exclusively.
