    anyone have the double stranded bracelets? Im trying to figure out if i want the 3sixteen version or the flat head one (much more expensive) ... both are from Self Edge

    wondering about quality and how they patina over time


    I had the black double stranded one, the quality is good.

    Duffel bags look like the work of Beckel Canvas to me, possibly?

    was at the pop up flea this past sunday in NY,
    the travel duffel set looks soooo amazing... and its a steal, talked to Andrew about it, we met before through my friends, they own a shop called Extra Butter out on Long Island (Rockville Center) and carry 3Sixteen
    the only thing I don't really like is the velcro they use on the handles (the leather is held by velcro, wish it was a metal snap or something else...)
    the price point is about $250 he said, again quite a steal imho, cant wait for my friends shop to get them in [​IMG]
    the green tote looks amazing though... might have to pick it up for when school starts [​IMG]

    You know, had cancel.sing not provided a link to beckel canvas above, I might have said "$250?, it's ok".

    But after looking at the products on beckel and realizing that 3sixteen has taken this bag by beckel for $50:

    [​IMG]


    and given it a $200 blue dye job, I'm no longer interested.

    That bag looks great! Anyone have any experience with it?

    somatoform - here's some additional information on the Weekender kit:

    Yes, the duffel bag is made by Beckel Canvas, but we had to buy the fabric ourselves, source some new leather hides (via our friends at Tanner Goods) to have the tan leather accents, and buy upgraded hardware. The Weekender kit also includes a custom toiletry bag and a Dickson Hairshop x 3sixteen toiletry kit (retail $50) as well as a shoulder strap that also has upgraded hardware. As for pricing, we're still trying to work it out as it's not yet available, but we are going to hope for something in between $200 and $220 retail. One last challenge that we faced in working with Beckel is that they don't provide much of a discount for quantity manufacturing, so we weren't able to pass the savings onto the retail customer.

    All things said, yes - for $50 you can get a really nice bag directly from them. No doubt about that. Ours costs quite a bit more but we did our best to upgrade it to a much better bag (both aesthetically and materials-wise), and we wanted to price it in line with everything else we're making, and give our retailers a little room to make some money on it. Either way, you can't really go wrong. We're pretty sure there are going to be a lot of people who like our version of the duffel bag.

    Thanks for checking it out, everyone.

    Thanks for that response. No doubt your bag is much nicer (color combo wise) and you're right about the extra costs for the travel kit and shoulder straps.

    I was referring more to how when you see (roughly) the same product pre-collab it plays with your mind in the sense of questioning how much you want to pay for the bag (bare minimum) vs the same bag (with aesthetic and structural perks, and branding).

    I don't think your price is too much for this bag, market-wise. I wouldn't think APC's bags are too expensive, but if I saw what APC's bags were coming from I would probably say the same thing.

    Hopefully you guys can make it $200; I think I would buy the 3sixteen weekender set, assuming I can buy it online.

    Is this going to be a single color run? Before this came up I was looking at that dark olive (otter?) color that Filson makes that looks so good after age.

    Fit pics of my ST-100x that I got in the mail today. These are my first pair of raw denim, so I'm pretty excited. They fit a little tight, but I'm sure they'll stretch out.

    Just bought the double-stranded tan bracelet. Can't wait to see the patina that develops!
