This personally curated collection of everyday carry essentials is here to elevate your daily life and take things to the next level. You can cop any of these everyday carry accessories by following the links throughout this article to pick and choose your favorites. Let’s get to it!

First up today with the Timex M79 Automatic Watch ($279) which is a ‘faithful recreation of a 1979 Timex dive watch with automatic Japanese movement’. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another automatic watch on the market with this much style and history for only $279. This is a steal and a watch that can be worn every single day.

The OluKai Moloa Slipper ($120) is made from soft nubuck leather on the uppers and these handsewn moccasins are perfect for this season. These are your formal chillwear. You can run errands in these, lounge around the house, crush some beer sodas in the backyard, and live your best life.

Next up we’ve got a must-have layer from Asket, The Raw Denim Jacket ($300) which is the ‘trucker jacket recast’. It is cut from their signature Japanese heritage raw denim in organic cotton and features a fully-lined black interior + hidden side pockets. This is the full package. Rock this all Fall and Winter with a plain t-shirt underneath and you’ll look fresh AF out there.

You can pair that jacket with the Proof Foundation 5-Pocket Pants ($118). These come in Navy, Dark Grey, or Black and they’re made out of a soft, flexible, and quick-drying Primeflex fabric from Toray, a leading Japanese fabric manufacturer.

Here we have the Cloos x Brady Collection ‘Ristretto’ Sunglasses ($189) which is part of a custom collection between the G.O.A.T. Tom Brady and Christopher Cloos. Thinking back a year I could I simply could not imagine a world where Tom Brady would leave the New England Patriots and come play for my Tampa Bay Buccaneers and relieve me of Jameis Winston’s INTs every Sunday. If you told me that was a possibility I would’ve laughed in your face. But here we are. Me, flipping on my TV on Sundays to root for the G.O.A.T. and his gorgeous Christopher Cloos custom shades. These ‘Ristretto’ Sunglasses are made with premium biodegradable Italie Acetat + M49 Mazzuccheli frames and polarized CR39 lenses, they also come with a signature case + cleaning cloth.

The Pike Knife by The James Brand ($120) is a super limited-edition pocket knife from The James Brand that I needed you gentlemen to know about before it’s gone. Only 300 of the Rosewood Brass model were made and they’ll be gone in no time.

The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet + Cash Plate is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts because of how lightweight it is and the superior craftsmanship. This minimalist wallet holds between 1-12 cards and has the elastic cash strap to hold all of your bills. This wallet only weighs 1.7oz which is unbelievably light compared to the competition.

Next we have the Ledlenser MT18 ‘Brighter Than A Car Headlight’ Flashlight. This incredibly powerful flashlight weighs only 21.9 oz (620 grams) and measures 6.74-inches which means you can easily tuck it into your backpack or center console. This flashlight pumps out 3,000 lumens and stretches nearly 1,800 feet. If you want to treat yourself to something spectacular this flashlight isn’t cheap ($199) but you’ll be buying one of the best EDC products on the planet.

I’m a big fan of this Flint and Tinder Leather Loop Key Chain ($28) which has a brass clip to keep your keys secure and a robust leather strap. This is a classic keychain style that’s always been a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts and this particular one will develop a nice patina over time as the leather ages and takes on character.

Last up today is the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle Chug Top ($40) which is the exact bottle I drink from every single day to stay hydrated. For whatever reason, I find I drink more water out of this bottle than any other one that I’ve ever owned. If you’re on the boat all day in the hot sun you’ll want to stay hydrated with this excellent bottle!
