Everyday Carry: Charlie Brown

No holiday season is complete without the warm simplicity of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, which began as a comic strip by Charles Schulz in 1950. Debuting in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas has since become a cultural lodestone of the December TV repertoire for its earnest spirit and the visceral response it evokes. In the years that followed, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, and Sally celebrated virtually every holiday, from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Fourth of July to even Arbor Day. This EDC layout is inspired by the iconic yellow and black shirt worn by Charlie Brown himself.

Vuarnet Belvedere Regular Sunglasses

A few years back, French-based Vuarnet made lenses specifically for wearing sunglasses at night (isn’t there a song?), improving contrast thanks to mineral glass that also filters out blue light. Fortunately, the Belvedere shades are not only good for your peepers but stylish as well, with bio-acetate frames reinforced by five-barrel hinges.
