Belstaff Colonial shoulder bag

Belstaff Colonial shoulder bag
This cotton canvas bag from Belstaff is reminicent of the type of bag I used to love years ago (with much better detailing to what I could afford then) but impractical for the type of bag I use today. I always seem in a rush to get things in and out of my bags. The main features of this bag are its’ materials and craftsmanship – the bag is made from English cotton canvas that’s been woven on an “original loom” to replicate the original irregularity of the fabric. They cheat (I think it’s cheating) by giving the fabric a “special” washing to help give the bag a well used look and feel. Great leather trim and tons of pockets. I love the look.
Belstaff has been making great technical gear since their founding in 1924 — I do love their new hero jacket. If only I could afford it.

Tapestry Lunchbox

Tapestry Lunchbox
Designer Frederique Morrel makes me feel embarrased for using a ziplock bag. These quirky lunchboxes made from vintage tapestries have to be one most unique ways to carry lunch I have ever seen. ” Based on the convenient format of a well known meal container for kids available at fast-food restaurants. Folds flat. Each product is one-of-a-kind”. Beautiful.

SealLine Urban Shoulder Bag

SealLine Urban Shoulder Bag
The SealLine Urban Shoulder Bag features a breathable, waterproof back panel and tough, PVC-free coated polyester and scrim-reinforced urethane that should hold up to extensive use.

This bag from Sealline looks like a perfect all-weather commuter bag but watch the interior fabric as it’s durability doesn’t appear to match the exterior materials.

D-Clock iPhone App.

D-Clock iPhone app
Inspired by the wrist watch designs of Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs, D-Clock is an analogue watch with alarm and calendar, which maintains in software, the simplicity and function of the original designers work. It has all the usual alarm setting and sounds but I love how you set the clock and alarm by moving the hands. Very intuitive. I have a thing for clocks on the iPhone and this is thus far my favorite.

Sam’s Garage Briefcases

Sam's Garage Briefcases
Sam’s Garage briefcases, an “ode to the luggage designers of the 50s and 60s,” are made with bent plywood with silkscreened graphics applied to the sides and fronts. The shape reminds me of suitcases from that period while the materials bring back memories of uncomfortable classroom desks of my youth. A not entirely positive memory but those desks looked better and last longer than their contemporary substitutes.
A case like this deserves to carry something more than a change of clothes or your days work; a traveling cocktail bar?

Of course the best solution is one bag travel but many of us can’t resist loading up on holiday trinkets.
