A Gent’s Must Have EDC Items

There are a few basic items that every man must have in his possession.

Forget about the items that suggest largess or luxury living, Here are some things that one should invest in

A Nice Watch

Fewer things get more personal than a good watch. Invest in a good wrist watch (or if you’re the eccentric kind in a pocket watch.)

We’re not talking about a smartwatch that will be obsolete in a couple of years. Think of a quality oldschool watch that you’d be proud to pass down to your son someday.

A Quality Belt

A man should never be without a belt unless he’s working out.

A belt doesn’t just hold up your pants, it’s a versatile tool that can serve as a weapon or rope when the situation demands it.

Go for at least 2 genuine leather belts.

Dopp Kit

Ladies are lucky to have handbags that can fit all their necessities. For men, we have dopp kits for the essentials.

Having one ready for travel, late nights at work or when you have to spend at a friend’s is important. You don’t want to ask your hosts if they have n extra toothbrush or face towel in the morning. Always be prepared and in style.

Leather Wallet

This is so important that we don’t have to mention it . Organize your cards, notes, coins and ID in a quality wallet.

We won’t take you seriously if you’re pulling creased notes from your back pocket and you’ll be frowned at for being a grown man with the velcro.

Toolbox

Get a toolbox with all the tools you might need. The basics are screws, screwdrivers, nails, a hammer, a hacksaw, pliers, spanner… You’ll definitely need them at some point.

Learn how to fix things on your own rather than inviting other men into your home to do sh*t for you.

Pocket Knife

Even for the pacifist, a pocket knife is a great tool to carry around. And when you need to defend yourself you’ll be grateful. Learn how to use one as well

Condoms

It’s nothing to be ashamed of unless your wife doesn’t approve. Always have some condoms with you as you can’t always predict when some magic will happen. Protect yourself
