Readers of a certain age will recognize that phrase as a joke from the Steve Martin movie The Jerk. Those who don’t are invited to check out the clip (not magazine) below. The reason I refer to this pre-meme trope: Steve’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump (above). He calls his photo “EDC with a porpoise.” I mean, purpose. The question is . . .
what’s the purpose of his EDC?
The obvious answer: personal self-defense. But I’m thinking that the technical manager is more than a bit style-driven. Carbon fiber magazine clip (not magazine)? BMW keys?
Do you choose your EDC loadout with style in mind, or is it all form follows function (and finance)?
