The thing about your everyday carry is that, well, it always goes with you, be it to the office or to a weekend party — and the other thing about that? It nearly always can use some tweaking or a few upgrades across the board. That’s the case whether you’re considering adding a new timepiece, amping up the durability of your wallet, or changing how you capture notes on the go in the field. And the common denominator among all of these essentials? They should be durable, sleek, stylish and just as ready for anything as you are. Here are the best new gear picks for your everyday carry at this very moment.
Salt Optics Brody Eyeglasses
Eyes feeling strained from too much time staring at screens? We’ve all been there, but the right eyeglasses can help. Salt Optics goes a step further than many of its competitors, making its stylish and refined frames in Japan by hand — the result is a pair of eyeglasses with personality and punch. This pair channels a bit of Daniel Craig’s style in the legendary film “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” as well.
Flint and Tinder No. 155 Flap Card Case
The more we see of the work coming out the recent Flint and Tinder x Billykirk partnership, the more impressed we are — and that means that this handsome leather card case specifically is the ideal addition to your everyday carry. It features critical space for up to 10 cards, plus cash, an ideal amount for the guy on the go. Minimal yet rugged, this tough card case is handmade and hand-burnished in the U.S.A. for high-quality durability.
Tactile Turn Titanium Bolt Action Pen
If you find yourself fumbling around for a pen you snagged from the office supply drawer more often than not, it’s time to change that — the Tactile Turn Titanium Bolt Action Pen is the right way to do this, and quickly. Made from ridiculously tough titanium and featuring arcing bolt-action deployment, it’s an easy-to-transport, one-of-a-kind pen that simply looks great (and writes nicely, too).
Omega Seamaster 1948 Chronometer
Perhaps the ultimate everyday carry upgrade is an outstanding, one-of-a-kind, heritage-quality watch — and in that regard, the Seamaster 1948 Chronometer from the legendary watch purveyors at Omega is just what your EDC needs at the moment. This watch is a thing of beauty, outfitted with a handsome leather strap and tough steel construction. It could quite honestly be the last watch you ever buy — but don’t take it from us.
