50 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: Patriotic Party Tanks, New Bourbon, Everyday Carry Gear, And More!

50 things we want rugged gear guide

Welcome back, gentlemen! Do you know why I call you gentlemen? Because I expect you to look and act like it and that’s why I spend hours upon hours each week putting together the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide for men. This way you have direct access to the hottest gear for men. If you’ve been reading the ‘Things We Want’ for yours then you’ll notice the new look design which is meant to fit more with the style of my daily Everyday Carry Essentials features.

After years of tweaking the format of this weekly gear guide, I’ve found that you bros tend to love the grid-style pictures the best so that’s why I’ve been trying to include more of these days. As always, if you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at cass@brobible.com.

Booker’s Bourbon ‘Shiny Barrel Batch’ Release

booker's bourbon shiny barrel batch


Here we see the Booker’s ‘Shiny Barrel Batch’. This is the second Booker’s Batch release of 2019. I’ve sampled this glorious elixir and it’s pure fire, which I mean in the best of ways. This 124.0 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has been aged for 6 years, 5 months, and 1 day.

The story goes that back in the day, Beam Distillery workers would carry around a ‘mule’ so suck whiskey out of the best barrels and over time these rotund individuals would end up shining the barrels housing the best whiskeys without realizing it because they’d be bending over it to suck out whiskey. The phrase went ‘the shinier the barrel, the sweeter the whiskey.’ This ‘Shiny Barrel’ tradition continues into the 21st century with this exquisite release. Which just hit shelves and is easily one of the best Bourbon Whiskey releases of the season (so far). Want to check out more of 2019’s best booze? I published this article last week which breaks down the 22 Best Whiskeys Of 2019 (So Far)!

There’s an awful lot of taboo when speaking about and admitting to ED but it’s so prevalent that guys who suffer from ED should 1000% know they’re not living alone. For guys with ED there’s a quick and easy solution, Hims. Hims gives you Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. You don’t need a prescription and it starts at just $5.

Even if you’ve never experienced ED before it might be useful to have some Hims on hand just in case. ED can show up due to stress, diet, aging, alcohol consumption, and countless other factors and you never know when it will present itself. For only $5, you can pick up some Hims and save it for a rainy day.

5 Preppy AF Bowties So You Can Peacock Through Wedding SZN

Brackish Bowties

Brackish Bowties have been on my radar for several years now. I believe I included them in a holiday gift guide two years ago. And I’m still as stoked on them today as I was back then. These are American-made bowties constructed out of 100% real bird feathers. Each style is gorgeous and incorporates the feathers of different birds from various peacock feathers to roosters and pheasants. The finished products are literal works of art and if you want to stand out this wedding season you’ll 100% want to buy one of these.

Grillight LED Spatula Has A Built-In Flashlight

Grillight LED Spatula Flashlight Grilling Tool


I’m not really a morning person and I tend to work out after work when I can and this means I often end up cooking pretty late. I could get a headlamp to wear while cooking but that seems obnoxious and a quick way to weird out my neighbors. Usually, I’ll just hold a flashlight with one hand and cook with the other but the Grillight LED Spatula kills two birds with one stone.

The best part? It’s really not expensive at all. You’d think that a tool this useful would cost you an arm and a leg but the Grillight LED Spatula only retails for $25 over on Huckberry. Did I mention that this is a dishwasher safe tool?! Because that surprised me and is definitely an added bonus on this already brilliant item.
