black and blue everyday carry items

This hand-picked collection of essential everyday carry items is full of gear that’s here to improve your daily life from start to finish. Each of these items is connected by color, Black and Blue, and you can shop the full collection or pick out your favorites by following the links throughout this article.

First up today is the The Guardian by Shinola Watches which runs on a brilliant Argonite 715 quartz movement. This watch is handmade in Detroit and the name ‘The Guardian’ is a nod to one of the city’s most iconic buildings. The 36mm case gives you a sleeker vintage look than bulkier watches and I love that about this watch, it frames the wrist perfectly.

Next up we’ve got the OBRA 240 Canvas Slip-on Wrap-Toe shoes. OBRA’s relatively new to the hypebeast scene but they’re already killing it. They looked at traditional canvas sneakers and removed any weak spots and reimagined them for enhanced comfort and durability. They’re built tough like a boot but comfortable like a sneaker. The vulcanized rubber outsole won’t ever give out on you and there’s an ultrasoft suede lining to keep your feet cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter.

I pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Sailfish Hawaiian Shirt from Tropical Bros 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!

You can pair that shirt with the Faherty Brand Stretch Malibu Shorts. Here we see them in light blue but they also come in Navy and Stone. The 9″ inseam lands right above the knees on most guys and they are over-dye and washed for a super soft and relaxed feel. The coconut buttons are also a special touch.

Up next we’ve got the Smith Optics Guide’s Choice – ChromaPop sunglasses. These brilliant shades include Smith Polarchromic tech that self-adjusts the tint in response to the amount of light and their proprietary ChromaPop lens technology enhances clarity and natural color. These advanced lenses are ideal for any bright light situations like fishing, boating, snowboarding, skiing, hiking, and more. If you’re an avid outdoorsman or just looking for a new pair of awesome sunglasses, these are an excellent option.

Here we’re looking at the SOG Knives Flash AT Pocket Knife for everyday carry. The D2 stainless steel blade measures 3.45-inches and is cryogenically heat-treated for world-class edge retention and durability. This lightweight and long-lasting knife fits comfortably in your pocket or on your belt and is perfect for everyday use.

The Tanner Goods Minimal Cardholder is made in Minneapolis from leather tanned by Wickett & Craig. The vegetable tanned skirting leather is a smooth and resilient leather that ages brilliantly. This is designed to hold up to 4 cards and your folded cash. This slimmed-down card wallet style is perfect for anyone looking to save precious pocket space.

The The Notetaker by Bellroy is a refillable ballpoint-tipped pen which comes with one black ink refill and it also accepts many common refill cartridges. The durable ceramic anodized aluminum construction means it will hold up over time and won’t fall apart on you.

We round it out today with the NanoTorch – Compact LED Flashlight, a compact everyday carry tool which fits snuggly on your keychain and packs a ton of power into such a small flashlight (25 lumens). At only $20 this is a steal.

Last up today we check out 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.
