Well, sorry for trying to help then. Was thinking this bag had some passing resemblance to the billykirks and you could put in a request to reduce the dimensions before purchase since they are made to order.

All the best for your search.

Hey don't worry about. I was just saying I was looking for something around 8x10 vertical, the bags in your link were all horizontal types, I already have a whole bunch of those types of bags. I wasn't looking for something custom made either, just something off the shelf I can buy right away. Thanks for replying anyways.

No offense taken then. Unfortunately, the bags listed on his Esty site are more or less made to order so the wait time will always be anytime between 1 to 2 months. All the best in your search though.

I see these 2 billykirk satchels, but i don't like the visible thick hand stitching, looks like some DIY hack job. I want something more cleaner looking stitched with a sewing machine.



I also like this nylon bag, it is what i am looking for, but the problem is it is a touch too small

Any suggestions?

What are people's thoughts on unlined leather bags? I finally found something I really like in terms of the size, aesthetic, materials, and origin (small-batch workshop made rather than mass-produced in a factory). The only thing that's holding me back is the lack of a lining. The leather itself is described as veg tanned reverse cordovan. I asked the maker, and he said the leather dye shouldn't transfer to any of the bag contents. Does anyone have experience with an unlined bag?

It's this one, by the way, but I'm getting it with a thicker strap:

Unlined is awful.

I can't stand them either. Depending on how they are finished, they will shed. They also feel crude.

Thoughts on Saint Laurent Paris leather and canvas backpacks?  Hows the quality?

post #446 of 555

I am looking for something similar to this musette bag, does anyone have any suggestions?

 

this one is a bit flimsy for the price they are asking ($50) which is why i don't like it, but i am looking for alternatives

 

the bag is 13"x10"

^Have you seen the Archival musette in real life? I have one and it's not flimsy at all (might look that way online). Yes, it's light, and it's supposed to be that way. I like it so much I bought another one with the leather strap. They do a slightly bigger/thicker version for more $$.

I haven't seen anything similar anywhere. If you are not in a rush to get it, wait for the occasional discount code. That's how I got my leather-strap version. FYI I have never seen them put it in the Odds and Ends section.

Very late response but this bag whore has been away. Just a few names I came up with (before coffee):

Entermodal (they might still take custom orders)
Guy Chanel
April in Paris

I believe the above makers are similar in quality (and price!) to Hermes.

Within the more affordable range, I have to say Lotuff is not bad. I have a small duffle from them and it's worked out very well. I do some leatherwork on the side so I pay a lot of attention to quality, design and construction and their duffle passed my test!

I would expect Frank Clegg's stuff to be similar but I haven't seen them in real life. Lotuff's customer service is much better.

Oh, and I have been very impressed with Seil Marschall (not a leather bag maker, I know...). The hiking backpack is really well made. The thing feels solid, but not too heavy. The straps will soften over time, making it even more comfortable to use. The quality of the leather used is very good. Frank Leder did a collab with them (check NMWA). Kaufmann also has their version.

A bag I've really enjoyed wearing this summer is this, a small leather number I found on eBay for $30. It's just big enough to carry a Kindle or iPad mini, along with pens, a small notebook, and other sundry items.

I'm looking for a darker one for winter, preferably with a print and of better quality, and don't know what search terms I should be using.

Anyone have experience with Tarnsjo Garveri? I won't be purchasing anytime soon, but saw their Icon Briefcase on Mr Porter last night.

HERE

I'm not normally a fan of this type of briefcase design, but I really like what they did here. Covering most of the clasp in leather gives the bag a more casual design that looks like it would pair well dressed up or down. Having a removable document holder in the back is a clever idea and it's a good size. Only thing i'm not a fan of is the price. $1700 is a lot to ask for in a bag and you start opening yourself up some of the higher end competition on the market. I'd be curious if anyone has seen and held on IRL and can comment on it's quality and value.
