Since day one, Cool Material has been all about introducing you to the latest and greatest products. And while we can confidently say we’ve wanted everything we’ve posted, we can’t say we’ve needed it all. “Need” is applied to those timeless items that weave through our lives on a daily basis, sometimes in the background, sometimes front and center. Here we present the basic 50. These are the 50 things every man should own.

50BW-suit
1. A suit … that actually fits


2. One great coffee table book every guest will pick up


50BW-bottle-opener
3. A bottle opener you didn’t get for free at 2-for-1 night


4. Headphones

On-ear, over-ear, in-ear—just make sure they’re good

5. A do-everything bag


50BW-watch
6. A decent watch

It can be a vintage watch. It can be an expensive watch. It can be an affordable watch that has a special meaning to you. Just own a watch you care about.

7. A chef’s knife that wasn’t part of the knife set you got for your wedding


50BW-tie
8. A knit tie

It’s the tie that can be dressed up or down

9. A pen that didn’t come in a pack of five


10. A toolbox with no less than a couple of screwdrivers, a hammer, tape measure, and a set of pliers



11. A camera that doesn’t make telephone calls


12. A television that does the fight scenes in Game of Thrones justice

14. A coffee-making contraption that doesn’t involve pods


15. A do-everything navy blazer


16. Power tools

Because paying people to fix your house is expensive

20. A classic Zippo lighter

Even if you don’t smoke.

21. A properly seasoned cast-iron skillet that’s seen its fair share of beef
