50 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: Bourbon, Colognes, Watches, Sunglasses, And More
How are we doing today, gentlemen? With another week of hard work in the books it is now time to treat ourselves to some retail therapy. That’s why I spend hours upon hours each week putting together the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide for men, so you can buy the best.
This way you have direct access to the hottest gear for men. If you’ve been reading the ‘Things We Want’ for yours then you’ll notice the new look design which is meant to fit more with the style of my daily Everyday Carry Essentials features.
After years of tweaking the format of this weekly gear guide, I’ve found that you bros tend to love the grid-style pictures the best so that’s why I’ve been trying to include more of these days. As always, if you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kodiak Leather Co. – Yukon Garment Bag
The Yukon Garment Bag from Kodiak Leather Co. is a gorgeous full-grain leather garment bag that’s built with the craft, care, and durability to be passed down through the generations.
It will hold up to 3 suits, your ties, shoes, toiletries, and laptop. That’s all on the interior compartment with 3 suit/hanger hooks, 1 buckle strap to secure the large compartment, 3 interior zippered pockets, and the main suit compartment for ample storage.
That alone is more than othe garment bags out there but toss in the fact that this one’s gorgeous and there’s simply no better option on the market, and I don’t say that lightly. The garment bag industry as a whole has needed a top-notch choice for quite some time and Kodiak Leather Co. has really taken the throne with the Yukon Garment Bag, which you can buy for only $349 right now while it’s on Kickstarter (already fully funded).
Knob Creek Quarter Oak
Knob Creek has just announced a new limited-edition addition to their portfolio, the Knob Creek Quarter Oak, which uses a secondary finishing approach to craft Bourbon with the fullest pre-prohibition era flavors. The Quarter Oak is bottled at 100-proof with a Dark Honey color. On the tongue, you’ll get a sweet flavor that’s also rich in oak with notes of dried fruits and spice. The aroma carries plenty of brown sweets on the nose along with char and toasted oak.
This is best served neat, with a large ice cube, or a droplet of water to taste. This limited-edition release is retailing for $49.99 nationwide (now) but there’s no telling how long this bottle will last on shelves because it’s a hot commodity. You can follow the link below to Knob Creek’s website to find it near you if you’re interested.
Christopher Cloos Sunglasses
Born from a vacation when the founders met a man named Christopher Cloos while traveling around the south of France, each pair of Christopher Cloos offers polarized lenses, perfect weight and durability, meaning they can withstand any adventure you’re planning to go on. And it means it’s time to trash those dopey, flimsy, plastic shades you’ve had for the past couple of summers, because your style has matured.
Here’s the real kicker, though: While Christopher Cloos sunglasses are manufactured with the utmost precision and look the part of a million-dollar man, the prices aren’t what you might think. With plenty of options starting at $149, you have plenty of styles that will fit your personality; but won’t nail your paycheck.
Happy Hour Hero Essentials
Here we’ve got the Booker’s ‘Country Ham’ Batch Release which is their third release of the year and already my favorite. This Booker’s Batch release pays tribute to 6th generation Beam distiller Booker Noe’s love of curing and tasting. The (Jim) Beam family carries a rich tradition of curing ham to appreciate with their Bourbon and this Batch release is said to be best enjoyed with a slice of smoked/cured ham.
The Booker’s ‘Country Ham’ Batch has been aged for 6 years, 4 months, and 2 days and it is bottled at 124-proof. It carries a sweet aroma with hints of vanilla and brown sugar. On the tongue, it has a sweet flavor upfront followed by a particularly long and smooth finish that warms the soul. Get this one now before it’s gone! You can follow this link to find it at a local store.

Limited-Edition Budweiser Shirts x Moon Landing Shirts
This special edition Budweiser Discovery Reserve + Highly Clutch collab was born from Budweiser’s limited edition Discovery Reserve, a Budweiser Reserve collection beer that debuted earlier this summer.
An American red lager, it features a light hoppy aroma with a toasted barley malt taste, a hint of toffee and a sharp finish. Budweiser Discovery Reserve was brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first successful mission to the moon on July 20th, 1969, complete with a taste inspired by an archival recipe from that time in history.
You can now buy the collection via Highly Clutch, commemorating today’s 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Just hit the ‘shop now’ link below and scoop yours before they’re gone!
