People occasionally solicit my opinions on leather bags. I currently own a Saddleback satchel which is great, but admittedly quite pricey. Enter Antigua Leather.
A good friend of mine from Vassar College is kickstarting (kickstartering?) behind this company which will produce high quality leather goods out of Antigua for significantly less than most high end leather makers.
I haven’t had hands on them, but seeing as my friend Paul is not particularly interested in #menswear, but very interested in craftsmanship (and world travel) I’d stake my reputation (for what that’s worth) that these bags will be as good as they look.
Also, look at those bags! Beeeeautiful!
Anyway, if you are interested in a new leather satchel, I’d steer you in this direction. Also, if you’re looking for a company to help in their kickstarting efforts, I’d recommend Antigua Leather.
