We’ve got an excellent selection of apparel, accessories, and gear for you to choose from. You can pick and choose your favorites or shop the full collection by following any of the links below.

Up first, we see the Mizzen + Main “Hendricks” Vest in Navy Heather. This is one of the best high-performance vests ever made. The quilting texture is specifically engineered to absorb your body heat in cooler temperatures and keep you comfortable. This vest is wind-resistant and ultra-soft on the body. I’ve been a Mizzen+Main fan for years, they’ve made half of the dress shirts in my closet. I didn’t think they could top their superior craftsmanship but they’ve really taken it to the next level with these vests.

Next we see the Olukai Hawai’Ilao Manu Ihu boots. These are probably my favorite leathers released in recent memory. I’ve been rocking these for a few weeks now and they are amongst the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. They look perfect with jeans and chinos. The upper is made from a soft nubuck leather, the lightweight compression molded EVA midsole feels great, and the supportive single-density poured PU anatomical footbed has a microfiber cover that’s moisture-wicking and odor-absorbant.

The Proof ‘Strong’ Shirt in Indigo Chambray is a hard-working shirt that combines the softness of washed chambray fabric with the durability of workwear. You can wear this shirt under just about any conditions and be happy with your choice. It’s comfy, rugged, and fits great.

The Camp Pant by Taylor Stitch are built from a heavily brushed olive twill that’s incredibly soft on the skin and fits like a dream. They have the typical pocket arrangement that you’d expect from pants with clean lines but they are stitched rugged enough for an active lifestyle. You can wear these hiking or on a date.

Next, we see the Paloma – Bourbon sunglasses from Christopher Cloos. They are made with top of the line CR39 lenses, and the frames are constructed out of premium acetate. These shades arrive with a classy signature case and cleaning cloth. Designed with the South of France lifestyle in mind, these have a timeless beauty to them that can be appreciated worldwide.

The Huckberry x Lum-Tec Combat B38 Field GMT is a gorgeous limited-edition field watch. Honestly, if I was in the market for a new field watch I’d buy this on the spot. The 43mm 316L stainless steel case had an understated matte finish and the yellow GMT hand marks the Greenwich Meridian Time. This watch is powered by a Swiss Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement which powers itself using the kinetic energy of your wrist. It is water-resistant up to 650-feet and has a green lume over the hands for visibility in the lowest light conditions.

The SOG Knives Twitch II in Olive/Black is a colorway exclusive to Huckberry. Only 700 of these knives were made so this is a very limited-edition knife. It uses SOG Assisted Technology for a quick opening system and the AUS-8 steel makes for a remarkably sharp blade. The Anodized aluminum 6061-T6 handle ensures this knife only weighs 2.6oz which is so lightweight you’ll practically never feel it in your pocket.

I’ve mentioned in the past that my family has a tradition of giving each other a nice pen every year for Christmas and The James Brand Benton Pen is truly a cut above the competition. The 304 stainless steel barrel is built to last a lifetime and it takes Schmidt 900 refillable ink cartridges. The tiny lanyard loop means you can attach this to your shirt pocket, backpack, notepad, nautical charts, maps, or anywhere else you want to keep your pen.

The Studebaker Bessemer Money Clip is on sale today and marked down to just $47. This item is hand-forged from American Brass in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and has a gorgeous work patina finish.

The RYU Locker Pack Lux (24L) is currently on sale and marked down to just $174 from the usual $215 price tag. This minimalist’s dream of a backpack is loaded up with hidden pockets and useful features. The molded internal shell gives the back its stylish shape whether it’s empty or full and the outer canvas has been DWR treated to keep the elements out.

We finish it off today with the The Clark Fork Copper Flask from Whiskey Leatherworks. This flask comes in three distinct leather options but I love this English Tan Dublin (Sinew Stitching) model the most. It’s constructed out of a premium Horween leather that will develop a gorgeous patina over time. Each flask is handmade in Montana and holds 6oz of your favorite Bourbon (or any other liquid).

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!

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.
