10 Everyday Carry Essentials: Black And Blue

best everyday carry gear black and blue

The haters will tell you that you shouldn’t mix Black and Blue in your daily style choices but those people are wrong. Black and Blue go perfectly together when done right and to drive that point home I’ve thrown together this hand-selected roundup of everyday carry essentials including gear, apparel, and accessories. First up is the TJ Blue LIV GX1 Swiss Chronograph, a very cool collaboration between pro-cyclist (and artist) TJ Eisenhart that is limited to just 500 pieces. The 45mm Case is made from 316L Stainless Steel fused with Black IP and this incredibly precise Swiss movement is a total steal at that price. This gorgeous Chronograph can be purchased with a Black Silicon strap, Black IP bracelet, or French Leather strap.

Below that watch we see the New Movements Model NM sneakers, these are sustainably made from recycled materials that have been repurposed to last for years. These premium leather shoes are handmade in Portugal and for each pair that’s sold the company removed 200 plastic bottles from the ocean! In the center, we feast our eyes upon the Armor-Lux Heritage Henley is built to be worn as either a standalone top or a sweater. It’s not often that you’ll find a stylishly versatile piece like this. You can pair that henley with the Proof Nomad Pants which were designed in San Francisco and have a soft feel and midweight design that feels like a pair of chinos. These are great for everyday wear and when traveling.

Bumping it over to the right-hand column we’ve got Common Ground’s Recover CBD which is a rub that’s built to provide essential healing when you’re pushing your body to the limits, whether that be putting in hours at the gym, charging the trails, or strenuous cardio. This allows you to reach new gains while treating pesky muscle soreness. On the right is the Fisher Bullet Space Pen is designed to write at any angle and in zero gravity. It’s the pen of the astronauts! And with this badass pen (that’s on sale) in tow, you’ll be able to keep track of everything in your daily life.

The Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet has a cash pocket that can hold plenty of folded cash as well as four card slots for your essentials (IDs + credit cards). This is constructed out of 3.5oz premium tooling leather and handmade in the USA. And with the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle is here to keep you hydrated all day long. I’ve been making a concerted effort to drink (close to) a gallon of water each day for the past few months and I’ve felt better than ever. With a premium bottle like this, you can fill up on the go and have chilled water anywhere anytime.

We round it out today with the Topo Designs Rover Pack is made in the USA, has natural leather last tabs, an inner laptop sleeve, and it draws its classic design from French Ski Gear bags and Japanese day packs. The drawstring closure allows you to expand and contract the bag based on how much gear you’ve got stuffed in there on any given day which is such a clutch feature to have. Lastly, at only $25, it’s hard to find a better value pocket knife than the Leatherman Skeletool KB. This is an excellent everyday carry choice that’s made with a super sharp blade that is built to last. Let’s check out today’s personally curated EDC gear again:

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but I can’t list the prices for an Amazon product because they typically change daily and it’s a violation of their TOS. That’s why it’s always listed as ‘Buy on Amazon’ instead of the price like the other items. I apologize for that confusion but I prefer to play by the rules, my dudes.

As always, you can pick and choose your favorite items from the list above or you can scoop the entire collection as you see it and REALLY treat yourself. If you have any accessories or apparel that you believe deserves to be featured here you can always hit me up on Twitter at @casspa or email at cass@brobible.com.

I’m sure most of you have realized this by now, but I publish a new edition of the ‘Everyday Carry‘ essentials roundup Monday through Thursday here at BroBible with the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide going out on Fridays. If you know of a product that should be featured here you can hit me up on email at cass@brobible.com, or find me on Twitter at @casspa. Or if you’ve got an idea for a daily theme I should touch on then hit me up!
