    Clothes: Patagonia (discovered them a few months ago, and well, I have too much stuff from them).
    Guitars: MusicMan. Guitars are everything for me. My favorite guitars are custom-made (e.g. my Waghorn: Waghorn Guitars ~ Custom Acoustic, Electric & Bass Guitars) but production-wise, MusicMan just makes The Right Stuff for me: https://www.music-man.com/instruments/guitars. I have 4 with another one inbound, and that's just because two were stolen... and 3 sold.

      Falke merino wool/cotton tights. Thick and warm, but not itchy at all. Fully fashioned no seam toes and turned heels. Amazing waist band. These are the best fitting tights I've ever had and they feel like they'll wear like iron.

        You should check out American-giant.com. Made in the USA. Lifetime warranty. I love their sweat pants and hoodies. The tees come in gorgeous colors. Recently ordered The Pant, and have to say they are great. Customer Service is excellent. Give them a look.

          +1 for this. Malkoff makes really really high quality lights. Bright, durable, long lasting. I have several Malkoff Surefire drop-ins that are going on 7 years old and still going strong. Great customer service, and a small business worth supporting.

          Malkoff Devices is an Alabama company that produces Flashlights and upgrade parts for them catering mainly to Law Enforcement and the crazy Flashlight Enthusiast community.
          It is run mostly by Gene Malkoff and his Wife and Family and despite or because of the small size they are an amazing resource for those looking for a great light.

          The stock is often sold out and you might have to wait for one but they are great and almost without pier in the high quality light market and though they might seem pricey to those not in the hobby the lights are downright bargains when compared with others like them too.

          The best though is the customer service which is really second to none,pretty much exactly like Bihn!

            Thermapen cooking thermometer by Thermoworks. Mine has been going strong for about 7-8 years now. They come in great colors; mine is made in the UK, and I got it during a sale of first-quality items that had some sort of cosmetic issue with the box, or perhaps were a display model. The design has changed somewhat recently, but I expect it's still an outstanding kitchen digital thermometer.

              surprised more people haven't said Fjallraven. They are more hiking gear but i wouldn't get another brand for a good jacket. Bags are not bad as well but don't come close to Tom Bihn Different style though

                    My husband LOVES his... he's hoping for matching pants so it can be a suit. The fabric is different than the pants, a bit silkier feel if that makes sense.

                      Amazing and everything you would expect and more. The feel of it is hard to describe.

                          My kids loved Tegu! We used to keep a set in the car, for restaurants and road trips. I always thought it was amazing how the kids came up with such creative structures. I still have several sets safely stored away. For some grandkids someday.

                            Me too, haraya! I actually bought the pocket sets for my two teens (after they kept taking mine off my desk) and they love them! I am definitely keeping them for the future and they are very useful for my kids to take along when they babysit, the little ones love them!

                              Steer him away from this, please. It's one of my big pet peeves in men's clothing. If it's not an actual suit and the fabric isn't exactly the same, the pants and jacket should not be the same color. They won't match quite right and it will look off. A blazer or sport coat should always be a different color than the pants. Gray or earth tone pants with a navy jacket, for instance, is a great look, but navy blazer and navy pants just doesn't look right. That's especially true with blazers that have patch pockets and brass buttons, but I think it applies to anything not made specifically as a full suit.

                                @autolycus sorry I didn't state that as clearly as I could have... hubby is hoping the company will start to make matching pants for the jacket. I sew and slightly off fabrics and colors push me over the edge. That's one of the things I love about Tom Bihn, the piecing and seaming on all the bags is about as close to perfect as you can get!
