First up, I’m delighted to introduce you gents to Hawthorne. This is your own personal assistant for finding a unique fragrance. It basically goes like this: you take a quick and simple 20-question quiz and they create a scent for you based on your likes, wants, and needs. This is definitely a service living in the future and I love everything about what they’re doing right now.

Next we see a unique Deejo Knives pocket knife with a sick 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.

The Knowledge Cotton Checked Flannel Shirt is GOTS-certified in its 100% organic cotton construction and this midweight cozy flannel hits on all of the seasonal colors you want for a buttondown this time of year. It’s also a pretty versatile shirt you can wear with chinos or jeans.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants. These come in 10 different colors, pretty much one for every outfit and occasion, and they’re made with a 2% spandex + 98% cotton blend that feels like a dream.

I’m loving the Martenero Ace Watch in Marine. This wristwatch is powered by an incredibly precise Japanese-made Miyota 821a automatic movement that stays juiced up by harnessing the energy of your wrist’s natural movement. That stylish leather strap is handmade in the USA and this watch has a 45-hour power reserve that will keep your watch running even if you’re not wearing it.

You should layer up with the Mizzen + Main “Hendricks” Vest in Navy Heather. 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.

The D01 Dapper Wallet from Dango Products is a sophisticated and sturdy option for anyone who wants a wallet that is minimalist in design. The top-grain leather looks fantastic, it is made in the USA, holds up to 12 cards, and incredibly lightweight in construction.

If you are looking for an everyday carry gift for yourself or someone else? You simply cannot ever go wrong when choosing a quality pen. The Bellroy ‘The Notetaker’ Pen is refillable and has a durable ceramic anodized aluminum construction that is backed by Bellroy’s 3-year warranty.

We round it out today with the Rancourt & Co. Wolf Boot. These boots are handmade in Maine with Horween Chromexcel leather sourced from Chicago’s Horween Tannery. As far as American-made leather boots go, you’ll be hard-pressed to ever find a better looking, feeling, and more functional boot than this. The cap toe is there to keep your toes and the boots protected in an area that takes the hardest pounding.

The RYU Locker Pack Lux (24L) is currently on sale and marked down to just $160 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.
