    The closest I've seen in terms of a small minimalist hobo bag (for guys, anyway) is this Guidi bag, but even it has its downsides. I think it's unlined, and the dye leaches out onto whatever you're carrying in it. Also, there's nothing securing the end of the strap, so it's just dangling there if you want to have the strap tighter. It's a decent-looking bag, but not that practical for those reasons. Haven't seen a canvas equivalent anywhere, either.

    The Noctex lung bag doesn't have the same issues as the Guidi bag, but it's a bit larger than I'd ideally like.

    Individual Sentiments did some really nice sling bags a few seasons ago that I keep hoping they'll bring back.

    they're way more 'technical' but i have two visvim ballistic 8ls for this purpose and they're great
    current season prices are probably stupid, but mine are from round 2009 and haven't worn down at all
    don't buy lamina; they're gorgeous but too padded for their size and prone to developing holes

    those guidi bags and ones like them are beautiful, but start to show their weaknesses the second you need to put anything structured or pointy in them

    would be cool to see more middle ground between the two, something all leather that performed a bit better

    Oh man. I almost mentioned that guidi bag too. Almost bought it once actually. But the strap was ridiculous, the zipper was a bit much and it wasn't quite spacious enough. Unlined wasn't a huge deal. That guidi leather is nice..

    I like the smaller size of the Guidi bag, personally. I think @nicelynice said something about his bag dry-bleeding onto either his clothes or the stuff inside the bag. Agreed, though, Guidi leather is nice, and I like the looks of the soft horse they use here.

    Anyone have a good line on some slippers? Looking for something with a durable sole.

    indoor slippers or flip flops and the like?

    if the latter, @nicelynice suggested https://www.olukai.com/ over the summer. i ended up getting a pair, and they are absolutely fantastic.

    Edit: don't think these have rubber soles, actually. But some of their models probably do.

    I want something to just kick around the house. I'm having some foot problems and walking around in socks all the time on hardwood floors isn't good for me. Thanks for the suggestions. Maybe I should just get some espadrilles.

    I had my Guidi bag lined with a fabric I bought from the fabric market because it was bleeding like crazy and I never loved the suede interior..
    Love it now
