Everyday Carry: New Leaf

Jan 8, 2020

Category: Everyday Carry

For many folks, the changing over from one year to the next is a chance to have a kind of proverbial fresh start. That can mean setting new goals, both big and small, for oneself over the next 365 days — like pursuing passions or attempting to focus on personal betterment. And while much of the concept of “turning over a new leaf” is metaphorical, we wanted to treat it a little more literally with this week’s everyday carry pocket dump. The gear you see before you isn’t just excellent for daily usage, it’s also (in part) actually constructed from plant-based materials — including wood and cork. If you’re hoping for a fresh start, this EDC loadout might just serve as a bit of positive inspiration.

Corkor Minimalist Front Pocket Wallet

As this minimalist cardholder wallet is crafted from cork, it’s a bit more eco-friendly than, say, leather or synthetic fabrics. It’s also remarkably lightweight, still plenty tough enough to carry your cash and up to 10 cards every day, and it’s available in a wide variety of colorways — so you can customize it to your other carry.

Purchase: $30

Filson Mesquite Professional Lockback Knife

Known for their heritage-level gear, Filson decided to unveil a series of new hunting-style knives last year — including this exceedingly handsome folder crafted from a combination of 440M steel and mesquite wood. To go along with its throwback styling, it also boasts a sturdy lockback mechanism to ensure it’s safe and secure when deployed and in use.

Purchase: $95

Original Grain Minimalist Zebrawood Rosegold Watch

A gorgeous and understated take on dress watches, the Original Grain Minimalist timepiece you see here boasts a case that is constructed from a gorgeous combination of zebrawood and 316L rose gold-finished stainless steel and is mated to a handsome and comfortable leather strap. On top of its clear, uncluttered beauty, it also features a reliable Japanese Miyota quartz movement to keep it ticking.

Purchase: $132
