So much of what we buy today, even those items that are designed well, are after a time thrown away. They lose their ‘value’ quickly. They lack the quality and style that doesn’t get weak with the passage of time. Gathering inspiration from the leather upholstery of classic English sports cars like the E-type Jaguar, the Bentley Continental or the Jensen CV8, the Modern Traveller series are incredibly beautiful bags that you want to care for and cherish; an artifact that stays within your family for more than a generation.
The Bristol Suitcase’s exterior is composed of lightweight smooth calf or perforated calfskin and features 2 zipped external pockets, a detachable cotton webbing shoulder strap, hidden shoulder strap fasteners and twin slider metal zip. The interior features a bright red cotton drill lining, elasticated suit restrainers and leather hanging loops. Just large enough to fit a man’s jacket flat.
