Any recommendations of where I can find a quality leather weekender bag? Preferably in the U.K.

Thanks in advance

By appearances alone and not experience, I've always been quite fond of the Sutherland bag by Westley Richards:

If you're looking for something significantly more affordable than the suggestions so far I can recommend a company called Leathfocus. It's a brand with zero heritage. Their products are probably made in China or similar (I can't find an origin label, but their sales blurb has that made in China flavour to it). They seem to have little online presence beyond Amazon, and their listings are littered with the sort of 'leather breifcase', 'GREAT GITF IDEA!' misspellings that vacuum the confidence right out of you. Their logo is pretty unattractive, too. I unpicked the leathfocus tag from my bag.

However, in bang for your buck terms their weekender is one of the best value things I've ever bought. It only cost around $200, but it looks and feels like a quality product that will only improve as you beat the crap out of it. This might be my favourite bag.

Second this. There are even a few stockists in London.
Frank Clegg available at Richard Gelding in London and their webshop baltzar.com. I would buy this brand myself if I didn't already have a couple of quality bags I use on trips. May buy a weekender from them in future though to have a single bag to rule them all.

Not sure if they still offer them but I have one from Herring. Very good price and I am happy with the quality.

Bennett Winch has a pretty cool design that incorporates a leather suit carrier around a canvas twill weekender.



If you want to spend mad baller money, there's always Smythson of Bond Street.
