This all-black collection of essential daily gear for guys is brilliant because it can be mixed and matched thanks to black being a universal color. Just identify your favorite items and follow the links to purchase. It’s that simple.
We kick it off with Centric Instruments The Lightwell Field Watch Mark III [$200] which is powered by Seiko’s solar-quartz movement with a solar panel. This is one of the most reliable watches around. It takes just one minute of sunlight to power this watch for 24-hours and a fully-charged watch has a power reserve of 4 months. This is a stylish watch that can be worn every day but you can also dress it up or down depending on the occasion.
These Vans UA Authentic 44 DX – Anaheim Factory Sneakers [$75] are based on Vans’ original design from way back in 1966. The modern updates include Ortholite® sockliners for comfort, higher glossed foxing tape and cotton laces, updated signature rubber waffle outsoles for the best grip, and the sturdy uppers will take anything you throw at them.
The Forty Five Supima Crew Tee [$32] comes in eleven different colors and it’s handmade in Los Angeles. This shirt’s built durable and top shelf from 100% USA-grown Supima cotton for softness and all-day comfort.
You can pair that tee with the Banks Journal Big Bear Fleece Walkshorts [$65] which are a ‘Dirty Black’ colorway with some cool visual texture. The fabric is organic French terry with a unique neps texture and they’re built for living your best life.
Here we’ve got a Custom Deejo Knives EDC Pocket Knife [$79] which truly is one of the coolest options on the planet for building a new pocket knife. You can fully customize it by choosing the Finishing (mirror/titanium), Weight (15/27/37g), Handle (Wood vs Composite), and you can add a custom blade tattoo and/or text on the handle. This can truly be your own pocket knife through and through. These also make awesome gifts!
The Flint and Tinder Leather Card Wallet [$27] is a stitched leather option with 4 card slots. The all-leather construction is designed to develop a gorgeous patina as it ages and the slim design is perfect for conserving pocket space. If you are still carrying around a bi-fold then it’s time to ditch that and get with the slim wallet lifestyle ASAP.
The Leather Hotel Key Fob [$20] is a Huckberry original. This is a no-nonsense keychain with a robust brass key ring and leather that will develop a gorgeous patina over time.
Here we’ve got the United By Blue High Fold Waffle Beanie [$19] which is stylish but it also might be one of the comfiest damn beanies ever made. The waffle knit adds warmth, texture, and comfort.
We round it out with the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones [$149] in black. These earbuds have been overhauled to meet the military’s MIL-STD 810G requirements. If they’re rugged enough for the troops they’re good enough for you, right? In order to receive the MIL-STD 810G certification the ‘Earthproof’ Vistas had to endure ‘repeated shock, vibration, drop and crush tests, as well as withstanding tropical humidity, hurricane-force water and desert sandstorm conditions.’
Last up today is the Wexley Stem Daypack in Coated Nylon [$129] with an all-black exterior and yellow interior. This backpack has everything an the $129 price point is a dang steal. It’s made from a hyper durable 1000D Cordura exterior, has two hidden pockets on the back panel, a padded 15″ laptop pocket, a card pocket, EDC pockets and all sorts of more storage. Seriously, this bag’s legit.
