...and not just any pen, but a fountain pen.
Got a GQ guy on your Secret Santa list this year? Well, according to the bible of style, one of the five essential things that no man should be without is a quality fountain pen.
And interestingly enough, quality does not necessarily mean pricey, GQ says.
The mag recommends both the Lamy Safari and the Kaweco Class Sport, two pens that are fairly inexpensive, yet known for performance and reliability.
And why should every man have a good pen?
Because, says writer David Coggins, "it's about the mark you make in the world when you put pen to paper, and that mark is something worth doing well."
