Spring Break is just around the corner followed by Summer but I already pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The ‘Hawaii Vibes’ 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. You can use promo code ‘BROBIBLE’ for 20% off your entire order!

You can pair these Flint and Tinder Stretch Selvage Jeans with that shirt and complete the ensemble just as long as you don’t wear a blue shirt underneath because that’s just too much blue, my dudes. These are made in Los Angeles from a super durable 12.6 oz denim fabric and the selvage weaving elevates the style and quality to a level you don’t often find in jeans these days. This is by far the most expensive item in today’s roundup but premium jeans ar always worth it.

Next up, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives 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.
