The Novel duffel bag from Herschel Supply Co. has been out for quite sometime now but they just unveiled this nylon shell in both an army green and charcoal finish. It’s limited in numbers and features a separate shoe compartment and padded shoulder strap. The bag’s lined with Herschel’s Custom Fabric and is honestly a great weekend bag if you’re on a budget (and even if you’re not). I personally have it in black with tan leather detailing and the selling points for me were its simplistic design and functionality.
If you’re making your way to some sand this weekend, then we can’t think of a better bag to take along for the ride. This duck bag from LVC is made of selvedge ‘duck’ canvas and features western belt strap handles and lined with two interior pockets. It’s got plenty of space for just about everything you’ll need and then some.
With Memorial Day Weekend here, we’re already looking to pack our bags and getaway but that’s really just a figment of our imagination. Trips will come though and when they do, this trolley from Mulberry will be one companion I’d personally love to take along for the journey. It features pebbled grey-green leather with contrasting smooth cognac leather trimmings. This piece of luggage is fitted with leather carry handles at top and single side and features an extendable pull-along handle to keep it rolling on two wheels when it’s time to spring to the festivities.
We recently had the opportunity to get a closer look at Lexdray — a unique line of bags and cases all of which are inspired by Japanese craftsmanship and modern functionality. Lexdray founder Alex Drayer delivers some fine details with this product. Every pocket on every bag has been measured to hold specific items and every shoulder strap has been designed for total comfort. Aesthetically, the current offerings come in an all-black shell and are limited to 550 pieces per style, with each bag being individually numbered as well.
The collection will be carried at Reed Space in NYC, Colette in Paris, Union in LA , The Darkside Initiative in SF and Concepts in Boston.
Austrian travel goods maker Hard Graft has release these leather sleeves for the Apple iPad and MacBook. This piece is made from super soft premium leather and lined with rich British woven wool.

You may have heard of Made in the World before but chances are you haven’t. It’s a Tokyo-based vintage shop that’s got a ton of American product, pieces we here in the States would love to grab. Word’s gotten out that the shop actually has only deadstock Red Wing Shoes dating back to the 1950’s. The Red Wing Shoes Heritage Team tells us original brown leather oxfords are positioned alongside a huge selection of 101 Postmans, many of which can be had at their $1,000-range prices.
New York’s rag & bone has released this cotton day pack, giving us a great looking backpack to utilize on our day trips over the coming months. It features leather detailing and a large main compartment, giving us a shell that looks good and is usable as well.
Minnesota-based J.W. Hulme Co. is dropping a few new styles for the Fall, three of which comprise the ‘Washburn’ collection. The Angler Bag, Airport Bag and Day Tote are all made out of green waxed canvas and feature brown leather trim and brass hardware. The Angler Bag is a messenger-style bag that delivers just the right amount of space for your daily companions such as a laptop and work docs, while the Airport Bag is a sturdy carry-on that’s spacious and masculine. The Washburn Day Tote is a great buy as it’s extremely generous in space and is made to help you get through the busiest of days. We’re looking forward to seeing what else they cook up for us as they’ve been consistently dropping some fine product.
