Everyday Carry: Rock Star

EDC Rock Star 0 Hero

Since the genre’s conception, each rock star has practically served as a style icon to some form of a niche audience, which says a lot about how we take from our favorite artists. That said, shouldn’t the same apply to the things we have on hand? It’s hard to argue against, which is why our lavish lineup of eye-catching, gold-and-red colored EDC gear is bound to help you channel your inner on-stage icon.

The James Brand Mehlville

If there’s one thing The James Brand knows how to do, it makes good-looking EDC items, but that’s not even half of it. The incredibly functional Mehlville is the gear boutique’s take on the standard carabiner, offering two compartments fully machined out of a solid block of aluminum for unrivaled longevity. Utility-wise, it operates just as well as a bottle opener as a key holder, ensuring it’s ready for your day-to-day needs.

MOSCOT is one of many brands we look to for high-quality eyewear, and its handcrafted Starker Gold with Custom Made Tints is easily one of its most stylish offerings. Of over 15 different shades to select, few coincide with our theme more than the gorgeous Cabernet option. This deep red hue is even more wearable thanks to a pair of silicone nose pads and a double bar bridge.

Montblanc Great Characters Jimi Hendrix Limited Edition 1942 Fountain Pen

Montblanc’s Great Characters Collection has shined a light on several icons across several mediums, and its most recent example is the great Jimi Hendrix. The German accessory brand’s fountain pen is entirely inspired by the mystifying colors on the cover of Electric Ladyland, highlighted by hints of gold, black, and red. What’s more are the intricacies that pay homage to the iconic guitarist, including a barrel ring inspired by ‘60s-era guitar cable and a gold-coated clip that looks like a whammy bar.
