I consulted with my luggage maker and told him I wanted to offer a line of exceptionally well made, luxurious, sophisticated, but rugged, travel bags.
You know, the kind that were impossible to find.
I didn't want much.
Funny, he said, Rolls Royce asked me the same thing. Wanted me to design bags for their customers that like to go places.
"Where do you see yourself going with them?" he asked.
"Well, I said, more places."
"I think I know what you're looking for."
Introducing our new line of canvas travel bags. Made from substantial 18 oz. canvas and hand-dipped in paraffin wax so that they don't have that oily feel or smell you get with lesser-quality canvas bags.
Handles are hand-rolled from the finest American cowhide.
All of the stitching is done with extra-heavy thread in a continuous stitch so that you never see any patchwork stitching.
All exposed edges are sanded and sealed.
It's the attention to detail that determines quality.
Vintage Waxed Canvas Duffle (No. 2879). A soft-sided bag that molds to whatever you put in it.
Long, three-sided top flap. Two exterior zip pockets for passports and tickets.
A deceptively deep interior zip pocket that's perfect for an extra pair of shoes or that silk something you like to pack for special weekends.
Detachable fabric shoulder-strap. Fits easily into the overhead bin or the boot of a British roadster.
Size: 21" x 11" x 11".
