Of course I expect most answers to be the same or similar. So men, what do you carry everyday?

Personally, I carry a knife, a wallet, a handkerchief, a can of badger hand salve, and occasionally, a small sassafras root.

Pocketknife. 

Aside from the essentials (keys, cell, and wallet), usually a pocket knife, a pen or pencil, and sometimes a book.

I think there are enough newer members to start this again but amazingly, AOM had the almost exact same conversation about 4 or 5 years ago.

For me its wallet, phone, and keys if I can get away with only that.

I think we had this conversation a month or two ago as well, haha.

House keys minimum. Normally my phone but not always. If I need it cash or card. Rarely more than that. 

Normal things for me to carry: thin wallet, keys, cap stick, and cell phone. Luckily being the technology person I am, everything I need is accessed on the smart phone :P Except for maybe a knife, but then again we just need to invent the iKnife and we're set. There can be an app for that I swear.

To the 'essentials' already mentioned, don't be caught without your business card, if you use them. And Eric, I affirm your mention of a 'thin' wallet. (In my opinion) what some guys pull out of a hip pocket is a freak show. Seriously, some of us don't throw anything away. A growing number of men carry their wallet/billfold in a front pocket. No joke: Chiropractors now treat men for posture issues aggravated by the unsightly cubic-yard dry cleaning receipt collections in some of our hip pockets!
I carry everything in the front pockets

Cell phone, keys, wallet is the bare minimum for me, although I tend to carry a lot of stuff sometimes. Among the bigger things I've carried in my pocket are a book (about the size of those cheesy paperbacks you buy at airports, not a textbook, obviously) or my tablet (one of those 7" ones, not an iPad, obviously.)

You sir have big pockets. I cannot ever get a 7" tablet in my pockets :P

Maybe Old Navy just makes their pockets big. I can fit one into the pocket of one of my ON jeans; have never tried with any other pants. And it's not as if I wear plus-size clothing either; I'm actually a really skinny guy. I was surprised too.

I don't carry these *every* day but if could, I'd feel my essentials would be:

-pocket knife

-wallet

-small corn cob pipe and favorite tobacco

-paracord wrist bracelet

-rosary

-notebook/pen
