Whether you are an aspiring Hemingway or just an avid note-taker, a good journal is your best friend. But with so many impostors out there, finding the right classic leather journal can be a cumbersome chore. Lucky for you, we have found the one: the Pelle Leather Journal ($29.99). This leather journal is handmade right here in the USA from fine American leather, and holds three Pelle notebooks (28 lb, linen cover). As with any handmade leather good, each Pelle leather journal has its own unique distressed look due to the leather, that’s how you know it’s good. Measures 3.4″ x 4.9″.
A man can never have too many idea journals. Keep your inventions recorded in style with the MUCU Blank Note ($16). Available in brown or grey, these classic notepads are individually hand-finished by a skilled craftsman in Japan. Just don’t lose it, lest your ideas become the property of someone else.
Stop fumbling through post-its and torn-out notebook pages to find your old meeting notes. Keep your notes in order with the Behance Action Journal ($17.50). This handy notepad gives a new approach to productivity, with designated action step boxes and even a “backburner” section for those hair-brained ideas. Pretty soon you’ll be less like Doc Brown and more like DaVinci.
