The other day I was reading the (now-debunked) theory about how the new Black Panther movie costume would sport a beautiful black-and-gold color scheme. While I was disappointed that the “news” wasn’t true — though one can still hope Marvel takes the idea and runs with it — it did give me an idea for this collection of EDC items.

For me, it’s not so much about carrying real actual gold; I just love the color scheme. Enjoy.

  1. Daniel Wellington “Classic Black Cornwall” watch. ($195)

    This elegant watch combines an all-black NATO strap and dial with an ultra-thin rose gold case with matching hands and hour markers. A subtle eye-catcher for sure.

  2. TGT “Helios” wallet. ($46)

    TGT (pronounced “tight”) took their signature elastic-and-canvas design and added a luxurious, limited-edition distressed lambskin front pocket.

  3. Gearward duct tape keychain (brass edition). ($20)

    You never know when you’re going to need duct tape. Here’s a stylish way to always keep some with you.

  4. Field Notes space pen (matte black edition). ($28)

    Not only is this pen stylish, it’s also capable of writing in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, and at temperatures from −30°F to 250°F (−35°C to 120°C).
