We’re all about the small style details making a big difference in terms of your personal style: How you look, how you feel, how you carry yourself, and what you carry. Your everyday carry essentials can go a long way toward cementing your own personal style, and that’s why you need to choose the right ones. We’ve rounded up the gear that’s going to complement the pieces you already know and love, from a durable pocket knife to a hard-wearing phone case to a stylish leather watch that gives off nothing but an air of classic refinement. These are the pieces you shouldn’t leave behind when dashing out the door in the morning
A durable pocket knife is an underrated everyday carry essential – you never know when you might need one, right? James Brand makes some of the best out there.
We absolutely consider a stylish leather watch such as this new Todd Snyder x Timex drop to be an essential everyday carry component. It helps that this stellar timepiece is slim, refined and subtly stylish – perfect for any situation. It also comes in black.
If you’re one of those people who’s always dropping your phone (raises hand), a stylish and functional leather case is a must. Oh, and this one’s vegan leather.
Now, depending on how you feel about AirPods (and whether you, in fact, have a pair), this unexpected everyday-carry essential might not be for you. But if you feel the need to keep these valuable audio devices safe and sound, then the Nomad AirPods Case is the right, refined way to go.
Effective performance is the name of the game when it comes to your everyday carry – this handsome, simple keyring ensures yours will never go missing. Plus, at $15, it’s really a downright steal in terms of upgrading your daily haul.
Your everyday carry really does need to equip you from A-to-Z in terms of gear, so stylish sunglasses from RAEN get the nod here. We like the throwback-inspired shape and range of frame color options.
In addition to functionality and performance, we think your everyday carry essentials should be refined and stylish, too. This handsome Dunhill cardholder is the perfect accessory to slip into your suit pocket or blazer for a dressed-up date – it’s the kind of leather wallet you’ll have for years and years.
Another great piece from a few seasons ago? The James Brand Elko knife. Check it out here.
