There are certain things that all men should have in their home, things that they went out and bought, made the conscious effort and decision to go and pick them up and didn’t get them free down the local pub, this sets the men apart from the boys.
1. The Coffee Table Book
You are looking here for that one great coffee table book that every person who comes to your home will pick up.
2. The Bottle Opener
Nope, not the one that you got for free with the 6 beers you bought in Lucky.
3. The Headphones
It doesn’t matter what type they are, be that on-ear or over-ear, in-ear, just make sure that you buy good ones.
4. The Watch
Sure this is the great thing about watches, it can be vintage, it can be expensive, it can even be affordable, but it must be a watch that you love and care about, something that has meaning to you.
5. The Knit Tie
This is a great staple to have at home in your wardrobe, a tie that can be dressed up or down.
6. The Pen
And no, we don’t mean from the pack of ten Bic’s that your office has, we mean a good quality pen that you are happy to take out in good company.
7. The Toolbox
Not just a random screwdriver, no we mean a proper toolbox, with a few screwdrivers, a decent hammer, a tape measure, and a set of pliers.
8. The Camera
And not the type that you can make telephone calls with.
9. The Coffee Maker
A good quality percolator, and not the type that you use with pods, or for that matter the 500 Reil 3-in-1 coffee packs, yuck!
10. The Whiskey
A really good bottle of whiskey that you only bring out on special occasions with special people, a real man’s drink.
11. The Chair
A big comfy chair that belongs to you and no one else, preferably leather!
12. The Leather Belt
A beautiful, well-crafted and well-worn leather belt, not the kind of one that falls apart after a few wears.
13. The Pocket Knife
A pocket knife you can depend on, think Swiss Army, think Wenger, think not the type you buy in Russian Market or Central.
14. The Weekend Bag
Because part of your life involves spur of the moment decisions to get out of the country for a bit, plus when it comes to business travel it should be stylish, not cumbersome.
15. The Art
Any self-respecting man should own one real piece of art, from a real artist!
