We kick it off with the VAER Watches Heritage with a 316L stainless steel case. This watch was assembled by hand in Los Angeles, runs on a Swiss-made quartz movement, is protected by highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and is rated waterproof up to 100 meters.

Up next is the Yuketen Bit Loafer in ‘Timber’. These are some of the finest leather sleds around and built for discerning gentlemen out there who understand the value of quality and craftsmanship. They feature a Horween Chromexcel leather upper made from the finest leather available and they’re handsewn by expert artisans (in small batches) in Maine. Check these out if you’re looking for a truly spectacular pair of loafers.

The Free Fly’s Bamboo Slub Polo is made from a comfortable and breathable soft bamboo viscose-blend fabric and unlike cotton, bamboo takes dye differently so it arrives with a really cool and unique looking color. This is a perfect polo for staying cool this summer.

You can pair that polo with the premium Wax London’s Holm Shorts which are made in Portugal from a lightweight and breathable rayon fabric. These are perfect Summer shorts that you can wear comfortably in the heat as the temperature starts to spike nationwide.

Next up is the Leatherman FREE K2 Multi-Tool which is an excellent multi-tool pocket knife option from Leatherman. It features a 420HC blade, multiple screwdrivers, a bottle opener, awl, and more. This American-made everyday carry tool is perfect for tossing in your backpack, pocket, car, or toolbox for use anytime.

The Daybreaker Waterproof Billfold Wallet is a pretty interesting wallet that I think a lot of you guys will love. This slim profile folding wallet holds up to 16 cards and plenty of cash. It’s made from TPU-coated polyester with RF welded seams and the waterproof, hydrophobic material means your life won’t be ruined if you accidentally run this through the washing machine or fall into the water with it in your pocket.

These Sennheiser Momentum 3 Headphones are some of the finest over-ear wireless headphones around. They offer depth and precision you won’t really find outside of less than a handful of other options on the planet.

The Aer Slim Pack is a perfect everyday backpack. It’s constructed out of highly abrasion-resistant 840D nylon with 1680D Cordura® side paneling. It has a 15″ padded laptop sleeve and all of the storage pockets you’d ever want/need throughout.

We round it out today with the ‘Worry-Free Deodorant’ from Each & Every which uses simple, clean ingredients like coconut oil and Dead Sea salts to fight odor all-day. One thing that’s particularly great about this deodorant in addition to it being better for your skin and body than normal off-the-shelf deodorants is this company uses energizing scents that pick you up when you need it. This will keep you odor-free all day long but have you smelling (and probably feeling) better than you’re used to. Check it out!

Last up today is the Rustico Writer’s Log Leather Refillable Notebook. This is made from premium top-grain leather, it’s handmade in Utah, includes a refillable 192-page lined notebook, and is a perfect way to keep all of your thoughts and ideas in one place during this strange time in life.
