Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

A good solid, heirloom-quality flask is an item that no self-respecting gentleman (or woman, really) should be without. You never know when you might need a swig to get you through a tough situation, break the ice with a new friend, or simply liven up a Saturday matinee at the cinema.

Washington, D.C.'s Mutiny collective has been in the right in touting its American-made, corrosion-resistant copper flasks. But at present, they have but one left in stock. Luckily, the Ohio manufacturer Jacob Bromwell carries a very similar item for $150. They also claim it is historically accurate down to the birch stopper, so re-enactors, you can get in on the action, too.
