Twin brothers Byron and Dexter Peart founded WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie to design attractive travel bags, everyday bags and accessories for fashionably modern gentlemen. Inspired by the timelessness and functionality of classic luggage, this Montreal-based company uses traditional styles to address modern-day considerations. For examples: a leather iPhone case that looks like a resurfaced, mid-century gem; the limited Edition leather DeGaulle bag, a timeless beauty in white; the sleek and super-functional cotton Kastrup backpack; and the canvas O’Hare shopper tote bag, adorned with WANT’s ubiquitous gold-and-silver zipper (its meaning: unity through contrast). As if handsomeness and utility weren’t enough, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie reflects the Peart brothers’ concern for social responsibility: the brand sources its organic cotton from Turkey and its sustainable leather from Norway, and assembles its products in Italy. Les essentials, indeed.

Bracelets Feat. Max ReedIf want to look good, you've got to take your wardrobe seriously — but that doesn't mean you need to take yourself seriously. As a matter of fact, a healthy dose of irreverence is a building block of a modern man's style, and that's just what these bracelets — from Max Reed, Miansai, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, and more — offer. They're sophisticated enough to be masculine, yet flashy enough to catch the eye of the nearest street style blogger.
