My Everyday Carry
I try to keep things as pared down as possible since I don’t often carry a bag. As a studio photographer, having a knife is incredibly handy for cutting seamless, scraping and slicing, as well as cutting up food for lunch. I took the pocket clip off of my Dragonfly because keep it in the bottom of my pocket—NYC laws don’t allow visible knives. I love this little knife. Great blade shape and ergonomics and the G10 handle is a perfect color and texture. I have been surprisingly pleased with the Poetics Atmosphere case, it doesn’t add much size to the phone and the rubberized edge has absorbed many drops and protects the screen from landing on any flat surfaces. The Canon powershot S line are great EDC cameras, small enough for a pocket with fully manual controls and RAW capability so you can tweak things later if you have to. I used to carry more expensive pens, but lately the Varsity does everything I want it to and I don’t have to worry about losing it or having to find a specific cartridge when I run out of ink. Cinamon toothpicks and teatree oil lip balm keep things fresh. This R&B was the smallest, simplest high-quality leather bifold I could find, and it does everything I need a wallet to do.
Nothing beats a solid G-Shock for EDC. They're nearly indestructible, highly reliable, and come in every possible style and colorway to match the rest of your carry. The GA100-1A1 (aka The Dark Knight) is an all-black digital/analog G-Shock with all the right features for an everyday watch. Shockproof and 200-meter water resistance come standard, and its “three-eye” display includes a 1/1000 stopwatch, alarm indicator, and countdown timer. The two bottom windows on each side of the display show a digital time readout (with up to 29 time zones) along with a day/date indicator that includes an auto-calendar pre-programmed until 2099—which , given the ruggedness of these watches, the GA100-1A1 might live to see. You're also not completely in the dark with its blacked-out colorway: the watch comes with an auto-LED function for easy illumination. Need a tough watch to complete your murdered out EDC?
