Wm. J. Mills & Co. gives us an in depth look at their entire bag lineup from their Stonewashed Vintage Series. The bags featured are all their standard offerings such as the Jitney Cargo bag and Sag Harbour duffle but feature this unique stonewash finish. The washing gives an aged look to the canvas and the hot wash, causes the fabric to pucker at the seams due to shrinkage. Check out the collection in its entirety below.
Japan’s Hobo has a great lineup of bags made from an all-weather fabric for the spring and LN-CC has taken stock of a few of them. They’re available in beige and black shells both of which feature leather detailing. The shoulder bag shown above is closable with a zip and has a brown smaller inside pocket with a zip and brown inside piping.
Check them out at LN-CC.
Leffot recently turned us to Basil Racuk’s latest version of the Weekender bag. It comes in a black oiled tan shell with red calf leather handles and vintage lining. It’s the perfect size for short getaways and the minimalistic design is sure to standout.
It measures 9″ x 23.5″ x 9″ and is made to order through Leffot.
As we’ve mentioned before, this past weekend’s Pop Up Flea in NYC was pretty epic. There were some pretty historic brands with some great product on hand. J.W. Hulme Co. brought along a limited edition tote which came to fruition after a loyal customer gave them a call and offered up an old awning they used to make back in 1961.
We paired our favorite American Heritage Leather with the durable canvas awning to make a functional tote. Due to the amount of awning canvas we could salvage we could only make a small run of ten.
We got the opportunity to check these bags up close at The Pop Up Flea but not sure if any of them made it out of there.
Zurich-based QWSTION has been making outstanding, functional travel gear since 2006, consistently delivering goods we’d enjoy lugging around, not dread. For the fall, they’ve released their most iconic pieces such as the Backpack, Officebag and the Weekender in herringbone shells with functional coating. If you want to standout from the pack, this should definitely do the trick, no matter what the destination.
This limited edition collection is available now at QWSTION.
hard graft gives us a preview of their new 2Pack body bag as well as the second edition of the 3Fold, which sold out pretty quickly the first time around. The 2Pack marks a revival of the across body bag with a nod to the working man’s tool belt. It’s look great so far and we personally can’t wait to check this piece out in the flesh. It’s never easy taking a successful product like the 3Fold to new heights when the initial version was so well-received but we think hard graft has done it with v2. The concept behind the bag is as strong as each of the three guises. A flat laptop bag turns A2 portfolio case turns large overnighter – perfect for embracing life to the full and being flexible from day to day.
Both bags are in the final stages of development so look for them to drop before year’s end.
New York-based 3sixteen teamed up with Portland’s Tanner Goods for this tote made from 10oz. waxed canvas and black English bridle leather. It’ll fit your 13″ MacBook easily along with a moleskine and magazine atop anything else you might want to toss in. The two external open pouches and one zippered pocket make way for more space for anything smaller to which you need easy access.
