From left to right, top to bottom:1. Apple iPhone Verizon2. Hamilton Khaki Filed Auto 38mm on Maratac strap3. Victorinox Cadet Red Alox on Munroe Dangler4. Rotring 600 Lava ballpoint pen with Fisher refill5. Rite In The Rain notebook6. The Hill-Side Indogo Selvedge Chambray pocket square7. Kawatako Brass Keyhook with Makr Bottle Key8. Makr One WalletThere are other items I EDC, but this is the stuff that is in my pockets on a daily basis.

Editor’s Note: Nice loadout. It’s streamlined and non-threatening while boasting both utility and style. Each piece individually is awesome and together they’re very coherent. I like the suspension clip/dangler on the Alox Cadet for better pocket carry. Great Rotring too. I notice you don’t carry a light, but I’m assuming your phone’s LED would suffice for your typical everyday environments. One last thing is that your bottle opener key is still a blank cut — I can’t really tell if the key behind it is the same size/blank but if it is you could minimize bulk and weight by combining keys. Otherwise, good work, thanks for sharing.

EDC: On Pocket Carry: Gear Retrieval, Weight Distribution, and Symmetric Allocation →

I often get asked, “How do you carry all of that?” when people new to the idea of EDC see pocket dumps with lots of gear. This photo post is just a brief look at my system of pocket carrying in standard 5 pocket jeans, meaning no bags, no pouches, no sheaths, no cargo pants, etc. Over a year…
