    Couple more things about the bag:

    I'm sure everyone has figured out the measurements based off of the Filson Briefcase, but here are the measurements per Shea at Apolis:

    16" W
    12.5" H
    4" D

    Starts shipping 8/1 ish
    Price is $396
    and the tag is just stitched on...could be seam ripped off.

    PM us with any other questions or pre-orders
    thanks for the support
    Jason

    Can anyone else confirm the color of the bag? Detour mentioned above that it was navy, but I PMed Mauro, who said it was black. Both supposedly saw it in person. I don't know who to believe, haha.

    When I saw it in person it looked black to me as well.

    This whole thing reminds me of that "navy" EG bedford that was clearly black.

    Haha, sorry, didn't mean to assist in the spreading of rumors. Just wanted confirmation, as the color is make-or-break for me. Thanks, Mauro [​IMG]

    The rumor was that Apolis originally pegged the bag to be navy but after catching "Passenger 57" on TBS the Partons quickly changed their minds.

    You should PM Mauro directly if you want to pre-order a bag. Last I heard they were still a few months out from being shipped.

    The collab took a nice step forward a few weeks ago and they looked great.

    I can't decide between this bag and the JCrew "The Original" postal messenger. I know they have two completely distinct looks, but I only have the budget for one....

    Thoughts?

    Much appreciated!

    I love how one of the brothers from Apolis chimed in on this thread and was totally blown off.
