Our “Bag Of The Week” is one of our most popular bag combinations: A 16″ wide English Tan Classic with a detachable cup holder. Please note that this is a ready-to-ship, English Tan Bridle, 16″ Classic bag. It comes with Brass (gold) Hardware, easy to use faux buckles, and Black Edges. If you would like to order this bag, but with different hardware or edge color, please contact us, otherwise this bag can no longer be customized, and if you would like to order it with custom features such as with backpack-straps, or laptop sleeve, please go to our ‘Handmade Classic Bags’ and find the Classic listing there.
Our top-of-line Classic messenger bag is an arrangement of all of our best features: from divided gusset, to faux-buckles, burnished and dyed-edges, and a comfortable handle covering — it’s our number one selling bag.
Like the majority of bags in our messenger line, this offering is crafted from high-quality 7-8oz vegetable tanned leather, that has then been drum dyed and finished with a special blend of oils and waxes (a supple finish, but the leather will absolutely maintain its shape overtime). Additionally, it’s extremely durable and intended for “lifetime” wear — the perfect everyday bag. And, with a two compartment interior, it offers a little more separation of belongings.
Simply put, if you put all of the features from all of our classic bags into one offering, this is it.
• Divided gusset: unlike the majority of our classic messenger bags (with buckles), this bag has a divided gusset. Aesthetically, we love the look on the outside, and functionally, it creates a two compartment interior. .
• Features hidden tuck-locks behind the buckles for ease of use.
• 7-8oz Wickett & Craig, American tanned, English Bridle – A vegetable tanned leather with an extremely smooth finish on both the top and back sides, yet it will retain its durability and form even under years of heavy use.
• Solid brass buckles and clips feature excellent build quality regarding both feel and thickness.
• 1 1/4″ wide removable shoulder strap.
• Detachable cup holder.
