Clinton C. Filson got his start outfitting prospectors on their way to the Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. The C.C.F. line of workwear from Filson bears his initials and carries on the Filson tradition of high-quality clothing that's versatile and tough. Made with a durable nylon shell with quilted polyester insulation, the C.C.F. Quilted Utility Jacket is compact and lightweight, making it an ideal outer layer as the weather begins to turn in the Fall, and in early Spring when there's still a chill in the air. In the colder months of Winter, it's perfect to place underneath a heavier coat as an insulating layer, making it a true three-season workhorse. Each jacket is finished with action-back shoulder pleats, insulated hand-warmer pockets, a metal zipper, and is priced right to be your go-to, throw-it-on layer this Fall.

Based in Hamburg, Germany, Sternglas creates functional, no-nonsense timepieces inspired by the Bauhaus design movement. The Topograph is one of their latest releases, centered around a black brushed stainless steel case and black dial with thin white markings. Among the highly legible indices is a Rehaut with each second inscribed that conveys the appearance of a technical measuring device. The minimalist watch is powered by rock-solid Miyota 821A automatic movement that's visible through the crystal case back and protected by slightly domed sapphire glass. Short, curved lugs make for a comfortable fit along with a leather strap that is handmade in Germany that can be swapped out in seconds for another thanks to the built-in quick release spring bars.
