Caran d'Ache has been making some of our favorite writing utensils in Switzerland for nearly a century. They're good. This is our go-to ballpoint pen — in the store since day one — made of aluminum and coated with several layers of enamel so the color stays vibrant. It's got a Goliath giant cartridge and a smooth ballpoint tip for perfect movement on the page. One of our favorite gifts.
“There's a reason why many of our suits & blazers come with specially-designed pen pockets on the inside. Because when you have a good idea, it helps to write it down! I love these for their geometric shape and cheerful colors. And while they're nice, they're not expensive, so you don't have to feel precious with them.”
