Everyday Carry | TGT’s Personal Effects
Let’s be honest, we love things here at TGT. In light of that truth, let us not forget that there are many things we don’t need. However, there are the belongings every man needs, or believes he does and thus will never leave his home without. That was the concept behind Everyday Carry – a tumblr style site of the items we fill our pockets with, strap to our wrists and push up to the bridge of our nose. Anyone can submit a picture of their collection of man regalia, to share with others. Granted, every now and then there is a collection of items that resemble the equipment of a conspiracy theorist on the eve of Y2K. However, use your own discretion to decide what is to be taken seriously and what not – at least in terms of everyday carry.
As for myself, these are the list of things I carry on a regular basis. Living in New York, I do still carry a pocket knife, but demoted myself to a Leatherman for obvious reasons. Back when I studied in North Carolina, I even then got a lot of flack for carrying a pocket knife. Today, the Leatherman sits in my bag. Anyways, now that the disclaimer is out of the way – we take inventory:
- Black Sub with Maratac Zulu Straps
- Leatherman Wave Utility Tool
- Montblanc Meisterstuck Portafogli
- A pair of 649s
- Blackberry 9700
- Sony Cybershot
- Moleskin Watercolor (thicker paper)
- M Gauge Ink Pigment Pen (Faber Castell)
The list should include the DSLR we use for the image itself, however, we couldn’t seem to quite get the detail without it. The 5DII is of course one of our everyday items. Enjoy.
