    interesting, do you have something specific in mind ? I always see L&F more as a loose/sarouel pants label.

    @jsd642 nice jacket

    Agreed for the mainlone L&F
    Some of the ROOMs non mainline L&F stuff is slimmer. Check at Ink Hk or Cruvior

    both these: https://*****************/listings/410129-Lost---Found-Ria-Dunn-Drawstring-Trousers and these: https://www.lyst.com/clothing/lost-found-cotton-linen-acid-dye-pocket-jean/ (though admittedly I got a pair that were tagged S but were actually XS!) are pretty narrow (relative to my experience, anyway!). The one pair of L&F Rooms pants I have, too.

    The stock at Cruvoir seems like in general they're fairly slender: https://cruvoir.com/lost-found-ria-dunn/10282-16295692-buttoned-slim-pant-anthracite e.g.

    @jsd642 That KKA jacket looks great on you. I'd been eyeing it as well, but glad it ended up in your hands.

    Anyone know of a maker/artisan that does custom bags in style of the stuff we talk about in this thread?

    Looking for a one strap sling backpack similar to this old IS, most similar stuff lays horizontally like a messenger bag but I'm looking for something vertical like a normal backpack
    Doesn't have to be super-handmade etc. Just good leather, decent size (need it to carry a 15 inch laptop), zippered closure/not open

    Ehhhh that odd shape won't be great for a laptop. It will fit it but may look odd. The bag looks like it doesn't have too much form m, kinda slouchy and a laptop which is hard and has form can clash.

    If you are not married to the backpack having to be leather then check some technical fabric backpacks. I came to this conclusion when I was getting myself a backpack.

    I have another backpack that works fine functionally but it looks weird when I'm wearing my cool dark clothing and carrying a nylon backpack. Just looking for an upgrade and I like the IS design a lot.

    I use this which is good but doesn't really work with a coat or leather.

    @psydle @nicelynice Thanks for the recs, I was thinking of reaching out to Zam, I'll contact esde too. Ierib has some cool stuff, shoes look quite A1923ish

    @sinnedk Thanks for the recs but I'm looking for something pretty specific

    also, these Inaisce are both avail aftermarket at the moment. I know they miss the mark for 1 sided strap config and you'd have to confirm with the sellers that they fit a laptop but the shapes are beautiful.

    You might reach out to Noctex about customizing something like this too. She has done some custom womenswear for a friend of mine. http://www.shopnoctex.com/collections/accessories/products/lung-bag

    Yeah I've seen the In Aisce, they're really beautiful but not exactly what I'm after. Noctex looks good, I'm basically after a larger version of that lung bag, how is her leather and build quality?

    I have the first In Aisce backpack -- don't really recommend it. Maybe itll be better after the leather is broken in or something, mine was very stiff. The bottom backpack where the straps connect basically stabs into the small of your back. I ended up using it at burning man and haven't fucked with it since, but it's partly because its now covered in l-wire and dust.

    Vaguely unrelated, recently got the devoa backpack from current season in both grey lamb and ballistic nylon.... vaguely single strap btw -- like it quite a bit, but even though its devoa (all ninja'd out) it feels like it could benefit from the experience/r&d/refinement an actual backpack company has undergone ;p Though I didn't expect otherwise, though there was some hope that I could comfortably parkour-yoga in it with a macbook pro 13" retina in it like a legit devoa fanboy.

    I own the IS bag and use it pretty much daily, and as much as I love it, it's not a good laptop bag. It gives the bag odd pointy angles, and because of the sling style anything too heavy in it will flop around a ton while walking. It is great for carrying a light jacket, frisbee, sunglasses etc, but not a good work bag.
