Everyday Carry: Bateman

Jan 30, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

While we’d certainly never suggest looking up to the likes of Patrick Bateman, the protagonist anti-hero of American Psycho, there’s no denying the man had style down to a T. Everything he owned — even the tools he used to carry out his particularly heinous obsession — was carefully selected specifically for both purpose and appearance. It’s this acuity and attention to detail that has inspired this week’s urbane everyday carry loadout. Obviously, you shouldn’t aspire to be like Patrick Bateman, but borrowing his sense of sophistication isn’t a crime, right?

CRKT CEO Folding Knife

Even if they hadn’t called it the CEO, it would be clear that this CRKT knife is intended for men who take pride in the cleanliness and stylishness of their gear. Of course, it’s not just fashionable, as the IKBS ball-bearing system, 8Cr13MoV stainless steel 3.107″ blade, and GRN handle speak to a knife that’s built to be used.

Jack Mason D101 Diver Watch

While it’s certainly tough and capable enough to handle SCUBA diving — evidenced by its 300-meter water resistance, Japanese quartz Miyota movement, and dive timer bezel — the stainless steel case and matching band elevate this particular timepiece into the realm of beautiful dress watches. You don’t have to wear it to your most important meetings, but it definitely wouldn’t look out of place if you did.
