You know the trouble with hats? It seems like all the cool ones come in a style that doesn't quite suit you. That shouldn't be a problem with Coal Headwear ($40-$60). Running the gamut from a short-brimmed baseball cap to a full-on fedora, these stylish bald spot covers are made from quality materials, and come in patterns that won't leave you feeling like you're wearing the top of someone else's head.
Keep an emergency stash of cash, checks, or other goodies on your person with the Patagonia Travel Belt ($30). This simple nylon belt doubles as an emergency lash strap, and features a hidden interior zippered pocket, a forged, anodized aluminum buckle, and an unassuming black or gray exterior. The only downside? You'll likely still have to take it off at the TSA screening booth due to the metal buckle — but it's a small price to pay for safety, right? Right?
We're not about to say that it's the most stylish scarf out there, but it might be the most durable. The Patagonia Nano Puff Scarf ($50) features a wind- and water-resistant Alpine Nano Puff shell, lightweight 100-g PrimaLoft One stuffing for heat retention, and a pass-through slit to keep it snug against your neck. Available in the always serviceable black or a light gray fog that'll be noticeably trickier to pair properly.
Is your life way more like James Bond's than the average guy — as in, you need to pack heat underneath your formalwear? Then you might as well take Bond's advice and pick up a Galco Executive Shoulder Holster ($160). Made from fully-lined Italian calfskin, this hand-molded holster features a combat grip, a one-inch wide elastic adjustable support strap with a suspender clip for fastening to trousers, and is available in right- or left-hand versions. Just remember to get your concealed carry permit first, lest you find yourself in the kind of trouble from which not even 007 could escape.
Whether you're a regular ol' four-eyes or just want a place to store your sunglasses, the Tanner Goods Eyeglass Case ($70) can handle the job. Based off a military issue case from the 1960s, these slim, stylish cases are hand-made in Portland from three-quarter ounce English Bridle leather, and sports a "flap-and-snap" closure, a term which also happens to describe a rather funny photography meme.
