My modest carry - 

iPhone in a Power Support case
Makr slim flap wallet 
Kaweco fountain pen
The Hill-Side floral discharge handkerchief
Kershaw Japanese-made VG10 on a custom leather/brass retrieval I made
Hamilton King Scuba - automatic and swiss made on a maratac strap.

Everything (besides the iPhone) is made in Japan, the USA, Germany or Switzerland. I’m a fan of quality goods. I also have a Japanese kaijin hook for my keys. Keep up the great blog.

Editor’s Note: Here’s a very handsome carry that doesn’t seem like much out of the ordinary, but actually features some high quality gear. I like the retrieval lanyard for your otherwise clipless Kershaw — both for its functionality and the nice choice of leather and brass that lends well to the rest of your carry’s “aesthetic,” so good job with that. I like your auto for EDC, it makes sense to go with an auto if you’ll keep it on your wrist every day. While I like the Kaweco fountain pen line and have a few myself, I personally don’t think they’re ideal for heavier duty EDC. It sort of sits in your pocket without a pocket clip for easy retrieval, it’s a little slower to start writing with considering you need to unscrew the cap and put the loose cap away, the plastic body might crack, ink might leak, etc. But in the context of this carry, I can see it working just fine. Maybe a small notebook would synergize with your pen (Field Notes, Moleskine etc) and round out this carry. Thanks for sharing — I’m sure EDCers looking to put together a “gentleman’s carry” could draw some cues from this.

Bellroy Phone Wallet

It would take an exceptionally well executed product to make phone case/wallet hybrids catch on, especially with the minimalist EDC crowd. While they aren’t anything new, you can chalk up their relative unpopularity to a couple of factors. First, most “folio” cases tend to add a ton of bulk to an already unwieldy generation of smartphones. Second, they don’t offer much else more than the convenience of keeping your phone and just a few of your cards in one place, which is a little risky in itself. With their strong existing lineup of slim wallets and quality phone covers, Bellroy stands the best chance of finally solving these problems with their new Phone Wallet.

True to their minimalist design, Bellroy shaves bulk off the traditional folio case using their stripped down pocket layout. Instead of lumping individual card slots all into the cover, the Phone Wallet distributes cards in more places for higher capacity in a sleeker silhouette: 2 cards fit in the front cover pocket, while up to 3 cards and once-folded cash tuck away behind the phone on the back of the case itself.

Small, thoughtful details add even more functionality to the wallet, like a microfiber-lined case interior to keep scratches to a minimum, hidden slots for a SIM card and pin for the traveling types, a leather tab on the cover for easier opening, and a thumb slot on the flap pocket for quicker access to your most used cards. The front cover even doubles as a kickstand for tabletop viewing.

If your goal is to carry less, you can have your bare essentials all in one place with this new hybrid wallet. They’re available in 3 colors for iPhone 6 and 6s Plus at the link below.
