- I used to wear glasses, glasses,
but I wore glasses so long in my life
that I decided I just didn't want to wear them anymore.
- [Interviewer] So how do you see?
- I just, I have one bad eye,
I just look through the other one.
What's up GQ,
this is Jack Harlow,
and these are my 10 essentials.
I think it's one of the greatest silhouettes
in shoe history.
My dad wore New Balances like a lot of dads growing up.
But in high school,
I started wearing New Balance.
Not a lot of kids in Louisville
were wearing New Balance at the time.
You know, it's kind of bigger on the East Coast,
like the DMV.
I just wanted to wear something different,
and I liked the way they felt,
so I just kind of ran with it.
And now it's a little more official,
and I'm working with them.
And I probably get a new pair of these
from New Balance once a month.
I'm not really even a sneakerhead,
to be honest.
I don't love shoes that much.
I have a few pairs that I'm not gonna wear to a concert,
or if I knew I was going to be walking in grass,
I wear them anywhere.
These are being mass produced.
It's just a great shoe.
It can go with a lot of things.
And this is the type of thing I put on with a sweatsuit
in the middle of the night and go on a mission.
Yeah I wear these constantly.
this is a shoe I would tap into the rest of my life.
About a year ago,
I probably wouldn't have been able
to bring as many things in here,
cause you know,
I don't have a lot of items
I feel like I can't live without.
I'm not materialistic,
but I got this recently and I'm in love with it.
That's the Sky-Dweller,
stainless steel Rolex.
I like the color of it.
I don't really like yellow gold,
so for me this can go with so much.
And the blue face like,
I mean especially right now,
this hits right now just because of my fit.
But I didn't fantasize about watches growing up,
but now that I have one,
I really could see myself building a collection.
But this is the only watch I have right now.
So these are condoms.
I really like the grip on them and they're just effective.
Your life can go downhill without them,
so I really recommend these.
- [Interviewer] Where can you buy them?
- A lot of places.
Pharmacies, grocery stores.
You know it gets tougher the later at night it gets,
but there's a lot of options.
Most places, most places carry them.
There's a chance I can't live without them.
It's an essential.
At all times, all locations.
So next I have these.
I got these about six days ago.
I really like how they fit my face.
There's no brand name on them,
so I have no idea what brand they are.
My friend Irvin gave them to me.
I can hide behind them in a way at the right times.
You know it gives me a nice,
like an anonymous feel,
like when I just want to take a walk
and just be amongst society.
Sometimes I get recognized in them,
but a lot of times I can slide with these and just--
And I feel good behind them and I've seen myself in them
and I like how it looks.
My air purifier.
Part of me thinks that it's been placebo for me,
that this is making my air better,
but it feels like my air has been better since I got this.
Yeah, I haven't changed this filter yet,
so I could be breathing in dusty-ass air,
There've been no alerts on it,
so I feel like it lasts a while and I like the size of it.
It just looks like it has an effect on the room.
Sometimes I turn it on blast and it's just
[makes blowing sound]
This is a ring.
I got this about three weeks ago.
It's a championship ring,
and I got eight of them
for my entire collective private garden.
That's what it says on the front.
And this was a special moment.
This was the first time I really iced out my collective
and the guys I came up with.
It's just a lot of diamonds on the face
and some white gold and some enamel.
There's a fountain on the front.
The fountain is our logo.
Alex Moss designed it out of New York.
It's similar to the watch.
I never thought I would be a ring guy,
but I just love wearing it.
I love how I feel in it.
I was in the gym maybe eight months ago,
and there was a woman in the gym selling sea moss.
And one of the main things she told me about it
is that it increases your libido
and just your drive.
And she gave me some right there.
And the rest of the time I was in the gym,
horny as hell.
I was turnt up.
I couldn't even really work out,
I had to go home.
And it has a lot of other benefits.
Immune system support,
stuff like that.
I think it's in one of those like rainbow blossom-type
expensive chips with a bland bag type.
You know what?
I don't know.
One of those stores.
I don't think these are like--
They might be at Kroger,
but I don't know.
I think it's in one of those nice stores.
I think it's good for your body,
and I take a lot of it.
I got a drawer of these,
and I wear them at least every other day.
I like the way these fit.
These are the slim fit Calvin Kleins,
and they really grip me and make me look fit.
I don't spill things.
I haven't spilled anything since I was like 14.
I love wearing white.
I wear white all the time.
I think it's my favorite color to wear.
I wear all white.
My pants are white right now.
you know, I love white.
So these are scissors.
I use these to cut a lot of things.
There's certain chip bags.
Like let's talk about the veggie sticks.
Cause I knew this wasn't gonna come up.
Let's just talk about--
The bag is like,
it's just like,
it's not built for a man to open.
And it's so stupid
because when you do cut it open,
then how do they stay fresh?
You have to eat the whole bag right there,
because then it's just a torn bag,
and then you can't--
So I'll open a bag with this regretfully,
but I do use these to open certain like sturdy chip bags.
No, I wouldn't trust myself to cut my hair.
I've never even shaved myself.
No I'm lying,
I've shaved myself.
I have this hoodie.
Can you read it?
It says ear X-tacy on it.
I don't have any article I've had longer than this.
I keep it tucked in my closet.
I don't take it a lot of places
cause I would be devastated if I lost it.
And this is one of the few items I have
that I feel that way about.
So ear X-tacy is a record store
that was around in the city I'm from,
When I was in middle school,
it was right at the end of the CD era.
We used to go up to the store and we would buy Jones soda
and we would buy CDs and it was just a special place.
And it's really a landmark in Louisville history for sure.
Somehow it still fits me.
I've grown a lot since middle school.
It was big on me then and now it's small.
I mean now,
but it's always worked.
So I treasure this for real.
GQ, thank you so much for having me.
I had a great time.
I'm Jack Harlow,
and those were my essentials.
