Each of these tools and items is specifically designed to make your life easier in some way. You can pick and choose any of your favorites by following the links throughout the article or shop the full collection!

First up today is the gorgeous and American-crafted The Guardian Watch by Shinola. This watch is a testament to the best of American watch craftsmanship and it runs on a maintenance-free Argonite 715 quartz movement that is hand-assembled in Detroit. I suspect most of you gentlemen are familiar with Shinola but if you aren’t then this really is a spectacular everyday watch you should know about, albeit not a cheap one.

Next are a fresh new pair of kicks I’m in love with, the Veja V-10 Sneaker, and I think you gents are really going to vibe with. This fusion of style between classic Italian and American trainers works magnificently. Interestingly, these are actually made in Brazil with leather that’s been Gold certified by the Leather Working Group to ensure a reduced environmental impact. Style aside, these are comfortable and functional in a way that you’d never expect and you can rock these with shorts, jeans, or chinos.

I pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Tropical Bros ‘Dad Bod’ Hawaiian Shirt is made from a custom ‘super stretch’ Hawaiian fabric. This magnificent party shirt has a moisture-wicking outer shell, wood buttons, a classic front pocket, and it’s machine washable. Best part? This breathable short-sleeve buttondown is perfect for cruising around on the boat from tiki hut to beach bar. You’ll automatically receive 20% off your entire order by clicking over to Tropical Bros from BroBible!

Be smart and pair that shirt with the Katin Theo Swim Shorts, a stylish pair of swim shorts/boardshorts that you can wear comfortably all-day on land and in the water. They offer a four-way stretch with quick-dry fabric made from a blend of cotton and nylon that’s incredibly easy on the skin. You’ll dig these and they’ll look dope with those shoes while you’re tossing back some cold ones and grilling out.

Do yourself a favor and pick up these Smith Optics Barra – ChromaPop sunglasses now and thank me later. You already know Smith from their Snowboarding gear but I’ve been a fan of their shades for pretty much my entire life. These frames are made from Evolve eco-friendly material and the lenses are finished with multilayer coatings including anti-reflective (A/R) and hydroleophobic. These are legit and you’ll appreciate these in the future.

The Benchmade Griptillian Drop Point Blade Knife is a perfect everyday carry knife. The blade is constructed from super high-quality CPM-S30V stainless steel and the custom-made Griptillian nylon handle gives you the best grip around. This knife is made in Oregon and is an example of truly great American knife craftsmanship.

Next in this roundup we’ve got the Tanner Goods Journeyman Card Wallet. I love this slim-profile 3.5oz vegetable-tanned Meridian English Bridle leather wallet with four card slots and a large central pocket for cash. This is made right here in the USA.

Next, we’ve got The Hardin Carabiner by The James Brand which is a particularly excellent expression of their impeccable craftsmanship and design. It is drop-forged for consistency and superior strength and the dual compartment design enables you to keep your keys + other items securely attached. It is constructed out of aerospace-grade 6061 aluminum that’s both lightweight and crazy strong.

We round it out today with the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer which is a grilling tool I’ve used since the day it was released, and one I’ve featured here on BroBible in the past because I stand by how incredible the Meater+ is. Seriously, I rarely run my smoker without using the Meater+ because it helps me achieve a perfect temperature every time. the built-in Bluetooth repeater in the charger extends the range of the Meater+ to a whopping 165-feet. There are no wires whatsoever and you an monitor everything on the Meater smartphone app to make sure you never overcook your meat. If you treat yourself to something new today is should be the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer.

Last up we’ve got the world-class Klipsch McLaren T5 II True Wireless Sport Earbuds. Meant to closely mimic the shape of the ear for maximum comfort, the Klipsch McLaren T5 II True Wireless Sport Earbuds are manufactured about 25 percent smaller than other options, meaning they won’t fall out or have sound interrupted when you’re in motion. And with a new signal boost antenna — delivering a high-quality, seamless Bluetooth® wireless connection — you’ll have maximum sound quality. The first 500 orders will receive a 30% off coupon code from the McLaren Gear Store, with codes being emailed once the product ships, so make sure to order yours now.
