This collection of everyday carry gear is full of gear, apparel, and other random items that you might want on hand every day but these goodies are typically reserved for the evenings. This hand-picked collection was chosen by yours truly and it includes items for when you want to kick back, relax, and let the day wind down. As always, you can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.

Up first today is the fourth and final ‘Batch’ release from Booker’s Bourbon this year and it’s nothing short of phenomenal. The Booker’s ‘Beaten Biscuits’ Batch release was bottled at 126.1-proof and has an age of 6 years, 6 months, and 19 days. It has a deep chestnut color that looks refined on your home bar and when you pop the bottle you’ll get notes from the oak barrel and a nose of sweet caramel. This is 100% a perfect Christmas gift to yourself and you can enjoy it neat, over ice, or with a few drops of water.

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 Mizzen + Main ‘Draper’ Navy/Red Multi Plaid is a perfect button-down shirt for this time of year when the various shades of red can be seen throughout the Christmas season and on into Winter. This high-performance shirt is machine-washable with a four-way stretch for the perfect fit. It’s lightweight, moisture-wicking, wrinkle-resistant, and you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion (slacks, chinos, or jeans).

You can pair that Mizzen + Main shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pant (straight cut) which is currently on sale for just $82 instead of the typical $98 it retails for. These pants come in ELEVEN different colors for you to choose from and they also come in a slim cut if you’d prefer that. The 98% cotton for softness is balanced with a 2% spandex for a full range of motion and comfort.

Here we see The Altitude Matte Black + Red by Vincero Watches, a 43mm watch powered by a highly precise Citizen Miyota Quartz movement. The case is made from Matte Black 316L surgical grade stainless steel and the interchangeable strap is 100D Cordura® Nylon. This slick watch can be worn every day and the Italian Marble Showcase caseback is sure to turn some heads.

The Billykirk No. 397 Slim Card Case is made in the USA and constructed from American-sourced leather that is then waxed to give it a super durable profile that will last you a LONG time will looking new. It has two side slots for cards + ID and a larger main pocket for cash and additional cards. This is built to give you the necessary pocket space back.

The Norlan Glass Rauk Heavy Tumbler is described as the ‘perfect vessel’ for drinking your finest dark spirits. If I come across this tumbler it’s an immediate signal that the person pouring my drink takes their whiskey-drinking seriously. This tumbler is made from the finest leaded crystal and has geometric facets that blend perfectly with the curved surfaces for a stunning appearance. This is shipped in a custom-designed gift box that makes it great as a present.

Now that the day is done you can kick back, relax, sip on that Bourbon, and fire up the Good Cigar Co. 2 Pack of Cigars with a buddy. This kit includes two of their best (and identical) cigars, a guide to tasting notes of the cigars, and they come sealed in a package with a perfect 72% humidity. It also comes with a double guillotine cigar cutter + branded matches to light up and enjoy.

It’s chilly out there so you should cover up your dome with the Tanner Goods 6 Panel Hat. This minimalist design will easily transition into your go-to everyday hat as it will fit with an array of your existing outfits. It is made in the USA and adjustable.

And I don’t know about you bros but when I have a chance to sip some fine whiskey and relax my mind begins to wander to places I don’t normally have time to ponder. With the Rustico Traveler’s Notebook + Wanderer Pen, you’ll be able to jot down all of your thoughts each and every day on your daily travels and the topographical leather map details embossed on the leather notebook look gorgeous.
