We kick it off with this pair of sunglasses from the Frogskins™ Grips Collection, this pair features Bronze HD optics lenses that offer HDO® Technology. These shades are ideal for bright light conditions and offer increased contrast. They provide 100% protection from UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and harmful blue light up to 400nm. They also just look straight up fantastic, don’t they?

Next is the Yuketen Bit Loafer which is on sale right now for $288 instead of the usual $340 price. I know that’s pretty expensive for a lot of you but these American leather loafers are handmade by expert craftsman in Maine and the finished product is one of the finest leather shoes made in America.

The Reigning Champ Henley – Pima Jersey t-shirt is a classic look that’s perfect for late Spring, Summer, and early Fall. This shirt also comes in black. The long-staple pima cotton is wrinkle-resistant, long-lasting, comfortable, and the flat-locked seams are low-abrasion so you won’t chafe on warmer weather. This shirt features three metal snap buttons on the henley collar but you’re best off leaving it open for the look.

You can pair that shirt with the Relwen Flyweight Flex Shorts, a personal favorite of mine. These Navy shorts are also sold in Olive and Steel. They are garment-dyed for added softness, have a superlight construction which means you can wear them year-round in comfort, and they have built-in stretch + a gusseted crotch for a full range of movement.

The Marathon Jumbo Search & Rescue (JSAR) is truly a phenomenal timepiece. This watch is made in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland and is powered by a high torque quartz movement. It’s capable of handling depths up to 1,000-feet below the surface and has MaraGlo™ paint on the hour markers, hands, and bezel triangle for low light viewing.

The Elko Knife is a perfect everyday carry pocket knife if you’re looking for superior craftsmanship and something that you can toss on your keychain or keep in your pocket. It’s incredibly sharp with a Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade that’s also excellent for edge retention.

The Tanner Goods Utility Bifold is handmade in the USA and features four card slots that holds an array of cards depending on embossment. This wallet’s constructed out of premium 3.5oz tooling leather and will looking stunning over the years.

Here we’ve got the Larq Bottle – Self Sanitizing Water Bottle. Let’s be honest, $95 is an outrageous price for a large water bottle. But this still has my attention unlike anything I’ve come across in a while. This is the cleanest water bottle on the market thanks to the UV-C LED purification system that cleans 99.999% of bacteria in only 60 seconds. It’s a double-wall vacuum sealed water bottle like the ones you’re accustomed to which means cold drinks stay cold for up to 24 hours.

It’s just $19 for one of the finest-made compact pens on the planet. For real, check this out for yourself and tell me it’s not amazing.

Last up is the Topo Designs Klettersack which is constructed out of incredibly tough 1000D Cordura® and Horween® leather. This is perfect to use as an everyday backpack, carry-on, dayhike pack, gym bag, or weekender. The versatility and craftsmanship of this backpack are what sets this apart from the rest and make it one of the best backpacks on the market.
