Filson-Tin-Cloth-Small-Duffle

If you’re looking for gear based purely on looks, shop whatever men’s designer happens to pop up most frequently on Google. If you’re looking for gear that looks good and lasts a lifetime, start that search with Filson. Some of Filson’s clothing is way past overkill because it’s been manufactured since 1850 with a focus on survival and not style. If you’re in the market for a bag though, durability is something that should be near the top of your list. The Tin Cloth Small Duffle (tinning cloth means it’s been covered with a water resistant oil finish) will keep all your goods dry and protected, but it also happens to look good. Do you need a waterproof weekend bag? Probably not not, but you don’t need emergency socks or underwear either. Need is a pretty big gray area these days, so err on the side of caution.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
