Often times, we get so caught up in the “gear” aspect of everyday carry, we forget that a part of the point of the whole idea of EDC is to ensure that a given individual is prepared for their daily trials and tribulations. For some, that means hauling around a complement of hardcore tactical gear for backcountry survival. But, for others, that might mean a pocketful of items to keep them looking sharp throughout their workday, evenings, weekends, and everything in-between. That being the case, this week’s pocket dump is dedicated to folks concerned with looking good and keeping up appearances. Whether you’re just going out for a night on the town or you’ve got clients to impress on-the-go, this gear will serve you perfectly each and every day.
Prospectors Gold Rush Pomade
Crafted using all-natural hemp oil, this pomade will help you keep your locks in order all day long. But what’s even better is that — on top of having a superior, healthy hold — it washes out easily with water. It’s no wonder this pomade has been made since 1849 and is still favored to this day.
Scout Hook Keychain Bottle Opener
A simple, yet beautiful addition to any keychain, the Scout Hook Keychain Bottle Opener is constructed from solid brass — meaning it’s plenty tough and will acquire a unique patina over time. It’s also made in the USA, comes with a keyring, and is even accompanied by a handsome leather stamped tab.
Standard Issue 1942 WWII Class A Comb
Based on an actual wartime design, the Standard Issue 1942 WWII Class A Comb is the ultimate pocket-sized grooming device for the dapper man. It’s built from solid brass (or stainless steel) and high-grain leather in Boise, Idaho. And while it opens to a full 7.6 inches, it collapses down for easier storage and transport when you’re not using it.
Prometheus Lights Alpha Pen
A stand-out against a crowded space filled with boring Montblancs and basic ballpoints, the Prometheus Light Alpha Pen is both an excellent EDC writing utensil and a way to show you’re both prepared and conscientious of the gear you carry. It’s made in the USA, constructed from solid brass, and accepts Montblanc Fineliner and Rollerball cartridges.
