First up is the Koa Stonewashed Minimalist 40mm watch from Original Grain. This watch is partially crafted using a gorgeous all-natural Hawaiian Koa Wood. The steel is a 316L Stonewashed Silver Stainless Steel that’s built to last a very long time. This gorgeous everyday watch is powered by a highly precise and dependable Japanese Miyota Citizen Quartz movement and the genuine leather band is my personal favorite detail because of its classic aesthetic.

With the purchase of the Koa Stonewashed Minimalist 40mm watch, you’ll also receive a free Canvas Watch Roll from Original Grain that safely holds 4 watches for when you’re traveling or tucking them away on your shelf for the day at home.

It’s chilly out and 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 Flint and Tinder American Made Flannel comes in five colors but the Beach Gingham is featured here since I’m loving that colorway for this Fall/Winter. This shirt is made in LA and it’s double brushed for maximum softness.

You can pair that flannel with the Billy Reid Moleskin Jeans. They are made in the USA by some of the finest craftsmen around. These are highly durable and shockingly comfortable. You can rock these as a pair of work pants or everyday jeans for happy hour.

I’m also 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.

The Rancourt & Co. Brunswick Boot is made using Chromexcel leather from Chicago’s Horween Tannery, a producer of some of the finest leather found anywhere in the world. Once the leather is sourced from Chicago, these boots are handmade in Maine. Every detail of these top-shelf boots has been carefully considered and the finished product is one of the finest pairs of boots around.

The Opinel No. 8 Black Oak Folder is a brilliant knife for everyday carry. The handle is crafted from oak which is resistant to humidity and the matte black Sandvik stainless steel is famous for excellent edge retention. This lightweight knife has been a favorite of pocket knife lovers for generations.

The Bullet Space Pen is based on the original 1948 Fisher Space Pen design using pressurized ink cartridges to write in any conditions (like outer space). This pen is made in the USA with solid brass construction.

Who needs a wallet when you’ve got the Studebaker Bessemer Money Clip? This gorgeous pure copper money clip is made in Pittsburgh with a gorgeous finish. It’s a simple option that will save you much needed pocket space.

Simply stated, the Fjällräven Keb Hike 20 is everything I look for in a backpack. It’s the proper size for everyday use but large enough to use as a carry-on if I’m hopping on a plane. It is constructed out of Fjällräven’s custom G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco S textile which is built to be extremely abrasion-resistant and durable for outdoor use and wearing in the field. The base and sides of the bag are made from a waterproof Bergshell that will keep all of your gear dry and protected.

For those special times when you want to throw back a few sips of your favorite spirit, you can reach for The Clark Fork Copper Flask, your new favorite flask. It comes in three leather styles and the one featured here is the English Tan Dublin (Sinew Stitching). The copper-coated stainless steel is durable and the leather wrap is made by hand, one at a time, in Missoula, Montana.
