Soul Man
Kristofer Bowman of The Inventorialist antiquities shop has been nurturing emerging local designers of late. His newest discovery is Jack Heinz Leather Co. (pictured). Mark Williams, a 2012 Ball State grad, handmakes wallets, eyeglass cases, and notebook covers with hand-healed seams. “They harken back to the fine wallets in our grandfathers’ pockets,” Bowman says. So do the prices, just $45 to $85 per item. 715 Dorman St., Thurs.–Sun only,
Bundles of Baubles
Starting Monday, Nov. 18, 8 Fifteen will turn about one-third of its store into a Chan Luu Pop-Up Show, featuring 800 pieces from the line known for combining semi-precious stones and leather cords. Pop by this Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday to talk to a rep about the holiday collection. The temporary boutique will remain open through Nov. 30. 815 E. 65th St., 317-253-1234,
Jam Session
Hot off the machines that make Indiana-pride t-shirts: a Pacers/Beatles mashup from Naptown Tees that says “John. Paul George. Ringo.” Like the team’s record, it’s perfect. We’d wear it eight days a week. $20 online

Fernandez began writing for Indianapolis Monthly in 1995 while studying journalism at Indiana University.
