Is there anything worse than falling in love with an accessory or piece of clothing only to have it fall apart in months, not years? Thankfully, smart shopping can save you the headache and heartbreak. Here are five built-to-last essentials that do it better (and for longer) than shoddy alternatives:

Revtown Jeans, $79

Parkour like Bond in the opening sequence of Casino Royale or cowboy it up like Kayce in Yellowstone. No matter the activity, Revtown's proprietary denim can move--and take a beating. Perfect for the guy who isn't about precious raw denim or fancy-schmancy pocket designs from the same brand his girlfriend wears. 

Blundstone Boots, $174

Blundstones are the perfect fit for anyone who hates bulky boots but doesn't want to sacrifice durability for a lean and clean aesthetic. They're made from premium leather with smart details like XRD technology in the heel for supreme shock absorption and an ergonomically engineered toe spring to reduce fatigue

Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet, $65

Don't let the minimalistic presentation of this Tanner Goods wallet fool you into thinking it can't handle years of pocket abuse. Its constructed by hand in the USA from 3.5 oz premium tooling leather and will only look better over time.

Revtown Airspun Henley, $40

Though denim is their bread and butter, Revtown also makes terrific henleys for those who like to live rough and ready. Perfect amount of stretch, not too tight, and so soft, your significant other might try to steal it.

Marathon MSAR Dive Watch, $795

No, you don't need to spend a small fortune on a Rolex to get an heirloom-quality watch that will last for lifetimes. The Marathon MSAR Dive Watch will set you back less than $1,000 and is fitted with a literal bombproof 316L stainless steel case, a stress-free Swiss-made quartz movement, and luminous tritium hour markers. A favorite amongst military and law enforcement agencies around the world, this can "take a licking and keep on ticking" with the best of them.
