Since the beginning of time, man has found an internal desire to set himself apart from the rest of the pack.
How can this be accomplished? Things. It sounds shallow, but in order to look your best, feel your best, and most importantly produce your best, you are going to need some items. Take a lesson from James Bond. He had a lot of cool stuff.
For your instant upgrade in the man category, make sure you track down these essential items.
1. A Tailored Suit
Buy one before you are 30. Stay that size.
2. Nice Pair Of Boots
Probably should have multiple pairs.
3. Quality Leather Belt
Black AND Brown. Reversible is a work of the devil.
4. Quality Sunglasses
Just don’t lose them.
5. Grooming Kit
Take care of your face. It’s the first thing people see.
Start small. Build it over time.
7. Good Knife
One good chef’s knife will handle all your kitchen needs.
8. A Multi-Purpose Bag
For the gym and the weekend.
9. A Good Bottle of Whiskey
Only for special occasions. No exceptions.
10. Cast Iron Skillet
11. Jean Jacket
There is nothing like a broken-in jean jacket.
12. Signature Cologne
Find what’s you and own it.
13. A Fishing Pole
Everyone needs to relax.
14. Your Go-To Coffee Mug
Mine is 32 oz and has a moose on it. It’s amazing.
15. Moleskine Journal
Write things down. If nothing else, impart your wisdom on your grandchildren when you die.
16. White Oxford
The perfect shirt for any occasion.
17. A Wristwatch
Like you need another excuse to be looking at your phone.
18. A Collection Of Books
That you have actually read. (A man of faith needs a Bible)
A wad of cash doesn’t belong in your wallet. Nobody wants to sit on a brick.
20. Gym Membership
Unless you have the equipment at home.
21. Good Dog
It’s man’s best friend for a reason. Your girlfriend’s yorkie doesn’t count.
22. Work Gloves
Roll up your sleeves and get dirty.
Go see the world. It will change your life.
24. Quality Coffee Machine
None of that Keurig garbage. Get a nice pourover system or a French press.

Find one you love and play it until you physically can’t.
26. Pocket Squares
If you put on a suit, it needs a pocket square. No questions asked.
27. A Gun
Also, probably more than one.
28. Bottle Opener
Not one from the dollar jar at the gas station.
29. A Hobby
Time is valuable. Spend it doing something you love.
30. Leather Jacket
Leather with an “L” not a “P.”
