Portable sewing kits tend to not look very masculine, or attractive, for that matter. Usually relegated to cheap plastic containers or unwieldy boxes, we're glad to have stumbled upon this black ripstop nylon kit from REI. It easily folds up to keep in the office for any impromptu style emergencies. Inside the zippered case you'll find some sturdy steel folding scissors, 18 different colors of quality thread, a threader, a thimble and a selection of buttons, needles and pins. We particularly like how when folded up, it's pretty inconspicuous, and to top it all off it's really affordable.
