best everyday carry essentials

I have handpicked some of 2020’s best everyday carry essentials for you gentlemen and chosen a few items that are colorful in nature. I’m not saying these are the brightest and loudest everyday carry essentials on the planet but when you piece these EDC items together they add a little color to your daily life. You can pick up any of these items below by following the links throughout the article!

First up today is the Timex 80 Retro Watch in Silver ($59) which is criminally underpriced at only $59. This is an everyday watch borne from a generation of ‘DeLoreans, Duran Duran, and Donkey Kong’ that was designed to be ”rad’ in every sense of the word’ by utilizing a geometric watch face and steel expansion band combined with Timex durability and trust. This is a watch you can wear with pretty much every outfit you own (Shorts, Jeans, Chinos, Shortleeves, Tanktop, Buttondown, etc.)

The Dr. Marten’s Maleke Men’s Twill Canvas Casual Boots are a STEAL for only $80. This is a perfect everyday boot that you can dress up or down with jeans or chinos. They feature a padded collar, grooved sides, Doc’s iconic visible stitching, and an air-cushioned sole. Don’t sleep on these!

The Faherty’s Legend Sweater Shirt in Heritage Plaid ($178) is truly a perfect layer for this time of year. This timeless design packs a lot under the hood. It’s made from a blend of 62% Polyester, 33% Viscose, and 5% Spandex which means it’s built to last you a lifetime while keeping you warm and cozy. It’s not a slim fit, it’s not a boxy fit, it’s just right.

You can pair that sweater with the Relwen Moleskin Chinos ($218) which come in Black, Charcoal, or Olive. Relwen’s softer-than-brushed Moleskin is perfect for the cooler weather this time of year. They have a seamless waistband for a dialed-in fit, knee darts + crotch gusset for comfort and mobility, and the black-oxidized hardware throughout is a classy touch on these tough and rugged pants.

The Topo Designs Fleece Cap ($36) in Dark Khaki is fresh AF and a comfortable way to keep your dome warm and comfy all Winter. This is a 6-panel design made from soft polyester fleece and Topo Designs’ signature details.

Here we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives ($70) which features a dope custom blade tattoo. These are some of the most customizable knives on the planet, they are super light, and ideal for everyday carry. They allow you to pick a unique ‘tattoo’ to make the knife your own as well as choosing the blade and handle features.

I’m a pretty big fan of this stylish and timeless Leather Loop Key Chain ($28) which has a brass clip to keep your keys secure and a robust leather strap. This is a classic keychain style that’s always been a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts and this particular one will develop a nice patina over time as the leather ages and takes on character.

The Melange Ragg Wool Scarf from Upstate Stock ($75) is knitted in New Jersey and finished in Brooklyn. This is made from high-quality wool that wicks away moisture and keeps you warm all winter long. If you’re not familiar, Ragg wool is a traditional workwear wool blend that includes nylon for shape-retention and durability.

We round it out today with The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet + Cash Plate ($125) is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts because of how lightweight it is and the superior craftsmanship. This minimalist wallet holds between 1-12 cards and has the elastic cash strap to hold all of your bills. This wallet only weighs 1.7oz which is unbelievably light compared to the competition.

Last up is the 1733’s X10 Canvas Ripstop Bookbag ($200) which is exclusively available at Huckberry. This backpack is waterproof and made with a ripstop canvas fabric that’s built to last you a generation. I still have a canvas backpack from the early 90’s that was my older brothers back in the day. I don’t really use it that often but I still have it. This fabric lasts FOREVER. This backpack is made in small batches in Chicago and has top access for EDC pockets, padded straps, a laptop sleeve, zipper counter-pulls and paracord for easy opening, and a lot more features that are awesome.
