It’s hard not to deny Outlier’s aim to build the future of clothing with products like the fashionably pragmatic Digital Linen Bandana ($47). The hundred percent linen 23″ x 23″ square pays homage to handkerchiefs of yore with a new twist: digitally printed patterns featuring exclusive work by artist Dan Funderburgh. The kerchiefs’ tasteful looks are enhanced by linen’s practical hydrophilic capacity; the fabric remains dry to the touch while efficiently absorbing moisture. You can wear it around your head, as a scarf or around your wrist — but unlike your grandfather’s well-used (and fiercely grubby) rag, we don’t encourage using this one to blow your nose in.
