You work hard and you deserve nice things. That’s why I’ve combed through some of my absolute favorites of 2019 to hand-pick a collection of blacked out everyday carry gear to improve your life in some way. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of 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.

I don’t feature too many Chelsea Boots here on BroBible but the Rhodes Footwear Huxley Boot is a stunning example of this popular design and I had to share it with you bros in this roundup. It’s made with a breathable premium calf leather upper that’s odor resistant and the Texon® insole has thermal insulation and an anti-shock foam layer to ensure your feet are comfortable all day long.

The Flint and Tinder Check Button Down comes in three colors but here we see the Black Check. It will look great when paired with that Mizzen + Main vest. This shirt is constructed out of the best Portuguese cotton and it’s made in Porto by a boutique shirtmaker with 60 years of experience.

You can pair that shirt with the Edwin Lian Skinny Jean. It has a classic 5-pocket design with a worn-in fading on the outside. They offer the perfect amount of stretch thanks to the blended T400® lycra that adds a comfortable flex.

Next, we have the Mizzen + Main “Belson” Vest in Charcoal Heather which is the best vest you’re going to find anywhere this Fall and Winter. 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. This is an essential layer that every guy needs in his life (and closet).

The Stilwell Pen by The James Brand is made with a hardy aluminum construction to hold up to anything life tosses its way and thanks to the aluminum it’s also incredibly lightweight. You can easily slip it into your pocket, it’s refillable, and the triple o-ring gasket protection ensures the cap stays in place when it’s not in use!

Now, if you’re living an active lifestyle AND you place a lot of value in premium sound quality then you simply won’t find a better option right now than the Jaybird Vista Truly Wireless Earbuds. These 100% wireless earbuds are perfect for working up a sweat because they’re also water and sweatproof in construction. These earbuds sit comfortably in your ears and offer spectacularly true sound. You can take phone calls with them, use the app to toggle settings if you want, and they come with a travel + charging case that will give you 10 extra hours of battery life. Check ’em out!

The James Brand has outdone themselves with The Carter Knife. The VG-10 stainless steel blade has been crafted for the best edge retention possible and the machined G10 handle offers the best grip around while also looking pretty dope. This is a discrete and insanely sharp pocket knife that’s ideal for everyday carry.

We round it out with the Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet. It is handmade in the USA and it’s constructed out of 3.5oz premium tooling leather. This premium leather card wallet has four card slots and large cash slot. It’s an ideal slim wallet option for anyone like myself who doesn’t want to sacrifice pocket space for a bulky wallet.

If you want to stay sharp then you need to stay hydrated. The Hydro Flask 32 oz. Insulated Water Bottle is about to become your best friend. Fill it up with water, stop wasting plastic bottles, and get hydrated. It keeps cold beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot beverages warm for up to six hours.
