What a gentleman's pocket needs

Sometimes you have a piece of corn stuck in your teeth that you just can't get rid of. You're with company and you're trying so hard to not take your tongue there, again. Your company doesn't know what's wrong, but they know something is off. Give your tongue a break for later that night and carry some toothpicks so you can order the spinach and corn sandwich at that lunch meeting.

It takes skill to not rush to get necessities when life presents you with adventures. It's accepted in society to steal a cigarette from a friend, but not a lip balm. Each has equal requirements and responsibilities.

We made a list of things that we recommend you to carry along on your daily adventures:

Your company doesn't know what's wrong, but they know something is off. Give your tongue a break for later that night and carry some toothpicks so you can order the spinach and corn sandwich at that lunch meeting.

Handkerchief:

You need it to wipe your sweat or to dry your hands. And when the moment comes, it can be useful to wipe tears or wine, when she's had one too many glasses of wine. There's no forgiving a sneeze without a napkin in public anymore.

Swiss Army knife:

No, it's not an overkill! You can use it for opening a cold one on the cab ride back home. But it might also come in handy for that one time you get cornered in a gully at 3 a.m.

It doesn't matter how digital we get, pens will never lose their might. From official signatures to helping someone understand your grand ideas, to leaving reminder notes for colleagues, to writing a card for your wife, there's no replacing it. Bonus points if you have good penmanship, it's attractive as hell.

Chapstick:

If you have dry lips, jump on it. Unless you want everyone you interact with to direct all their focus to your lips and/or on trying not to look at your chapped and bleeding lips.

Mints:

Fragrance:

Business card holder:

Doesn't matter what kind of a holder, it's just professional when you pull a business card out of a holder, instead of fumbling to find a loose card from your bag. It also, in part, decides the seat your card gets- in the trash or with other distinguished business cards.
