First up is the Horween Leather Chronograph from Form•Function•Form ($128), a custom updated Timex Weekender 40 that’s perfect for everyday wear. The band design hides the button-stud adjustment holes behind the watch face and it fits the original slip-thru NATO-style band Dimensions.
The Dr. Marten’s Maleke Men’s Twill Canvas Casual Boots are a STEAL for only $80. This is a perfect everyday boot that you can dress up or down with jeans or chinos. They feature a padded collar, grooved sides, Doc’s iconic visible stitching, and an air-cushioned sole. Don’t sleep on these!
The Faherty Brand Reversible Belmar Shirt ($148) was engineered to be perfectly reversible and two shirts on one. You cannot beat that. The doublecloth fabric has an airy homespun texture and it’s woven from organic cotton that’s buttery soft and light. This shirt comes in a few different styles but this one caught my eye.
You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants ($98) in Navy. These pants are available in 14 different colors as well as Slim, Straight, and Tapered cuts. They are a blend of 98% cotton and 2% spandex for a little added comfortable stretch. The blended 8oz fabric makes them perfect for year-round wear.
Here we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives ($70) which features a dope custom 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.
These Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones ($98) are an absolute steal right now. I have these in the Galactic Green colorway and they usually sell for $190 but they’re on sale for just $98 right now. They meet all MIL-STD 810G standards which means they’re basically able to withstand everything on the planet from hurricane-force water to desert storm sand conditions. And the sound quality is incredible. I use them on my Peloton and rarely have to charge them because the charging case gives them extra battery.
The all-new Flint and Tinder Leather Card Wallet ($50) 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.
I’m a pretty big fan of this stylish and timeless 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.
We round it out today with the Goal Zero Flip 24 Portable Charger ($30) which can fully charge your smartphone 2x. This is a must-have for keeping your phone charged on the go anytime. Seriously, don’t leave home without it.
Last up is the Aer Duffel Pack 2 in Navy ($135) which is an all-time favorite of mine. I’ve had an Aer Fit Pack 2 for years and I’ve traveled the world with it. It has a super handy zippered pocket at the bottom for your shoes as well as a massive central compartment. I often use this as my carry-on bag for flights. It also has a laptop sleeve and pockets throughout for everything you need to store.
