I really, really enjoy the Clyde model from Church's. Just look at the pictures. Handsome animal, isn't it? After three years of frequent wear, mine is about to give up its ghost. So I understand why people gripe about Church's quality these days. But I still love this design. Unfortunately Church's no longer makes it. I need a replacement.

A new Swaine Adeney Brigg that replaced my old buddy the Filson Satchel. A true beauty. I will be posting a review of this bag soon.
