Trailblazer
Magnolia couple Scott and Brittany Freeman have been designing men’s clothing since 2010, and The Freeman jacket is their pièce de résistance. Made in Seattle and featuring a waterproof shell, a contoured hood and soft plaid flannel lining, this clean, tailored jacket is ideal for men who like to look good on whatever trail they’re blazing. $299. Available at Ian, downtown, 1919 Second Ave., No. 100; 206.441.4055; ianshop.com


Go, Daddy, Go

Order a custom pennant from Capitol Hill’s Katie Tiehen that perfectly reflects your pop’s personality: “Marathon Man,” “Top Chef,” “World’s Best” or simply “The Boss.” Starting at $20. Available at RahRahPennants, rahrahpennants.etsy.com

The Axeman Cometh

Seward Park’s Andy Gregory has been swinging an axe since his days at Boy Scout camp in Wisconsin. An avid tool lover, he turned his hobby of spiffing up old ones found at yard sales and on eBay into a business, launching Northwest Axe Company in March. Each refurbished axe comes with a custom leather sheath, and Gregory guarantees his workmanship for life. Starting at $80. Available at nwaxeco.com


Fixed Kit

E.H. Works, a Queen Anne–based design firm helmed by Erica Hanson, has created this convenient traveling tool kit especially for cyclists. The Mopha Tool Roll, made from waxed canvas, leather trim and vintage-style toe straps, has 10 small pockets for all the gear necessary for on-the-fly repairs and stows comfortably under the seat. $44. Available at Hub and Bespoke, Fremont, 513 N 36th St.; 206.547.5730; hubandbespoke.com
