best men's everyday carry gear new year

We are back with another collection of the best everyday carry gear for men. This roundup of the best men’s EDC gear was hand-picked by myself to help you navigate the new year in style. You can shop the full everyday carry collection or pick and choose any of your favorites by following the links below!

First up, we see the ‘Blackwood Classic’ Watch by Original Grain is made from a gorgeous all-natural African Blackwood paired with premium 316L Matte Black Stainless Steel that work together in harmony for a gorgeous facade. This watch runs on a precise Miyota 2115 Quartz movement housed in the 43mm case. If you are on the hunt for an everyday watch this is perfect because it can easily be paired with an array of outfits and styles.

The Nisolo Emilio Chukka Boots are handmade in Peru and features a full-length soft sheep leather insole that’s extremely comfortable. It has excellent built-in arch support, a slip-free rubber heel cap, and the stitching is reinforced throughout so they’ll last longer. The stacked leather heel height is 1-inch which is the perfect height for boots of this style.

The ‘Wallace’ in Red Navy Plaid from Mizzen + Main is a high-performance flannel shirt unlike anything else out there and I mean that in the best of ways. These Mizzen + Main flannels have taken my favorite shirt style to the next level with their lightweight performance fabric that has DryCool technology that’s quick-drying and moisture-wicking. These flannels have a natural stretch from Mizzen’s special fibers (no spandex added), they’re wrinkle-resistant so you don’t have to iron them, and they’re 2″ shorter than their dress shirts because they’re designed to be worn untucked or tucked in, whichever you prefer.

You can pair that shirt with the Proof Nomad Pants which come in five different colorways and are here to seamlessly fit with an array of your existing outfits. These are perfect pants for everyday wear or traveling in because they’re breathable and water-resistant with a DWR coating.

Next, we check out 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.

Bros! You should 100% take notice of Fulton & Roark solid fragrances. The Solid Fragrance Sample Pack (only $16) includes 8 premium fragrances which enables you to familiarize yourself with these stellar scents. They apply much more evenly than typical fragrances and last longer.

Here we see Fraser Kit‘s top-shelf leather goods which are made with an attention to detail you won’t find at their competitors. These are USA-made products and built to LAST while looking excellent along the way. Here we see the Fraser Kit Keychain which features rich oil-tanned leather and 100% Scottish tartan wool on the other side.

The Fjällräven Keb Hike 20 Backpack is one of my favorite everyday backpacks of the year and one that is durable enough to last a decade or more. Fjällräven offers attention to detail that you won’t find in the competitors and this bag is set up perfect for everyday use with pockets and storage throughout in a very cohesive manner. This bag is on sale right now so be sure to scoop it before it’s gone.
