Lisa Eisner Necklace

Lisa Eisner—editor, photographer, book publisher, and air mail Editor at Large—is one of our favorite multi-hyphenates. Especially when she unveils a new collection of jewelry, which is happening rightthisveryminute over on Moda Operandi. Greybull, Wyoming–born Eisner is inspired by the American West, and her designs often include unusual materials, which she hand-sets in gold or bronze. A favorite new design: this starburst necklace, made of bronze sourced from North Dakota. The stone in question is a piece of old turquoise unearthed from the Kingman mine, in Arizona. ($4,300;

Strap On

Tudor’s Limited-Edition Watch

The Rugby World Cup is going full-throttle in Japan right now, where New Zealand’s team, the All Blacks, is looking to defend its title. (They’ve won the last two, so they’re a damn good bet.) To mark the cup—and celebrate the All Blacks—Tudor has created the Black Bay Chronograph Dark, a limited-edition version of the watchmaker’s handsome Black Bay timepiece. Right now, Tudor has produced only 1,181 of the watches—the exact number of men who’ve pulled on an All Blacks kit. Tudor will release a new one only when a new player joins the team. ($5,925;

Slide On

Tod’s Loafers

Tod’s has dominated the sport-loafer game since Diego Della Valle launched the brand in the 1980s. (Chances are, you already own an enviable pair of Gomminos.) Now these masterful Italian cobblers have introduced a sleek new shape—slightly tapered, with full coverage, and 1970s-esque in a very good way. Made in Italy from top-notch, weather-resilient leather (with a jazzy ponyskin print), they’re sufficiently comfy and stylish that it will prove very difficult to reach for, say, high heels. ($945,

Stow Away

The Vuitton Bag

For those who haul a laptop all over town, elegant storage options are in offensively short supply. A MacBook Pro—one’s very lifeblood!—shouldn’t be left to slosh around in a soft tote. The wise people at Louis Vuitton have devised a solution. First of all, the City Steamer PM bag is outfitted with handles for hand- or elbow-carry, along with a detachable strap that enables it to be worn cross-body, messenger-style. It also has loads of organizational features, such as flap and zippered compartments, an interior hook, and a detachable leather tag. But, most importantly, it looks smashing. And surely you don’t expect air mail editors to resist something with a red racing stripe? ($4,300;

Button Up

The Ferragamo Trench

Single-breasted wool tweed, buttery rich suede, a contrasting collar—such are the makings of a damn fine trench coat. Ferragamo’s Paul Andrew, who started off as a shoe guy, has proved his prowess with ready-to-wear. With its rakish men’s-wear sensibility—but distinctly feminine silhouette—this trench is almost an entire outfit on its own. (Although we do generally recommend wearing something underneath.)
