I have a love/hate relationship with bags. The two that I use most regularly are the Little Brother Correspondent leather satchel and the Karen Walker for Swanndri 48 hour holdall. Both have their pros and cons. I’ve gone the distance with the satchel (about seven years) so it’s got a great lived-in patina – I conditioned the leather yesterday for the first time in five years and it came out looking fresh to def. But my beef with it is that the strap doesn’t work too well when you’re wearing a blazer with shoulder pads. It bunches everything up and just looks all dowdy-like.
Ditto the KW for Swanndri bag. There’s no doubt it’s a good-looking piece of luggage, but it is the heaviest thing I own. Lugging it around destroys me – especially when there’s a laptop inside (which there invariably always is).
I reckon a rucksack’s my best option. The Inventory X Duluth Utility Pack (above) looks like a good time. Canvas and leather is one of my favourite combos and it seems rugged enough to be worn daily. The only dilemma would be choosing between tan and navy.
But if all-leather is more your thing, I’d recommend the Cambridge Batchel. I want mine in navy blue, gold embossed with the letters I, H and M. Holla.
I LIKE YOU!
