Currently using 3 "manbags" or just "bags" that all have very specific uses: 1) Barbour leather top tarras bag (crappy or wet weather) ) Tony Perotti Treviso leather bag - for jaunts about NYC when I only need to carry the basics). Its made in China but quality is superb, they ship their leather and hardware over (hardware is the best I've seen) and assemble in China 3) custom-made leather bag made for me at www.villagetannery.com for carrying around more than the...

Quote: Originally Posted by Nananine I really like it. What brand is it? Hi Nananine. The bag is a slightly customized version of the "Saturn" convertible, which is a messenger bag with back straps so that it can also be used as a knapsack. The owner, Memo, is a nice guy to deal with, and if you don't want one of their pre-set patterns, they will make the bag for you with some basic modifications you want, and charge you the same price as...
Do you think that this would this work on the Gaza smuggling tunnels?
Any thoughts/comments on the bag?
Picked the bag up yesterday, and it came out better than I had even expected, it is a great bag and doesn't look like the horizontal messenger bag that everyone and their brother has slung over their shoulder like a fashion statement here in...

Feel free to give opinions. Don't know where you are, but this firm is in NYC, and they hand make...

Does anyone have comments on how well-treated deer hide compares to other leathers in terms of feel and weight? You shouldn't, horse is the best hide, and only G&B goatskin comes close. Horse is water-resistant, and can outlast almost anything or anyone you throw at...
Quote: Horse is really completely overrated, especially on SF (the cordovan obsession is absolutely ridiculous). I strongly disagree. I have owned many hides, and horse is superb, if you are willing to put the time in to break in the jacket. Quote: and the color depth and texture are rarely more than boring. You need to go to: www.thefedoralounge.com and look at posters' Aeros in brown FQHH, the leather textures are...
