Well Designed: The Most Stylish New Gear to Buy in November


Each month, we pick the coolest products on our radar that you should have in your hands. Here’s what’s new:

The City Bike, Streamlined
Swedish-designed Bikeid Diamond looks like a fixie, but it has a two-speed rear hub that automatically shifts up or down at 11 mph — helpful on hills. The hub also eliminates the mess of cables. A lever controls the front brake; the pedals engage the rear. [From $790; bikeid.us]

Hardworking Hex Keys
Wrenching on your bike just got easier. The sleek SILCA HX-One tool set is precisely formed from hardened steel to fit better with delicate fasteners — meaning fewer stripped bolts. A grippy finish and a beechwood box complete with magnetic lid allow you to access the keys quickly with one hand. [$125; silca.cc]

The Eternal Desk Lamp
This industrial-chic light backs up its form with unique function: sliding mechanisms that adjust up and down as well as left to right. Plus, a wire frame in the Dyson CSYS Desk Lamp dissipates heat, which extends the lives of its series of LEDs up to 37 years. [$649; dyson.com]

The WWII-Era Boot
With an unlined kudu (antelope) leather upper and a Goodyear welt sole, the Allen Edmonds Normandy looks like proper work footwear from generations ago. But this derby boot is thoroughly modern: Its wider forefoot offers all-day comfort that complements its business-casual styling. [$350; allenedmonds.com]

The First-Class Traveler
To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Tumi has rolled out its 1975 Collection, which includes the leather-clad International Carry-On. Four spinner wheels let you stroll effortlessly through the airport, and corner bumpers protect the bag — even if you never surrender it to baggage handlers. [$1,895; tumi.com]
