Executive Leather Messenger Bag

Hey Gary all I can say about the Messenger Bag I bought from you is that it is such quality and luxury at the same time. It even smells good like my Rawlings Baseball Glove when I was a child. Thank You for making such a beautiful and quality bag. I will enjoy this bag for many years to come

Full-Size - Grizzly Leather

Just got it but I already love it. Everything from the leather to the awesome buckle screams quality and attention to detail. It's built like a tank but looks like a McLaren. It fits my 15 inch Surface Laptop and my 11 inch iPad Pro perfectly, with a lot of space left for the rest. It's simple but absolutely nails all the fundamentals. I was even able to get it with a removable shoulder strap, so, aside from the bag itself, the customer service also deserves 5 stars.

Professional Messenger Bag

This bag is the messenger leather bag that I was looking for for sometime now. I carry a lot of items usually (before Covd19) so I chose the full model and it was up to the challenge. I like the quality details in this bag, the inside pockets, the beautiful patina, and the smell too and I am looking forward to use it for many years to come.

Wonderful product and great service

Ordered an Executive Leather Messenger from the UK and it arrived two days later! Fantastic service. Bag is beautifully made and feels as though it will last for ever. The lining is gorgeous. Fits my Dell XPS 13 perfectly and there's plenty of room for accessories and notepads. Brilliant design. Only downside is the customs charges on import but not much the team can do about that. Unreservedly recommended.

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER BAG

We usually recommend not doing anything to the full-grain leather of your bag, letting it develop it's own beautiful patina over time. However, you may want to freshen it up a bit with a leather conditioner. The leather may darken a bit, so test the reaction first on a spot that's not highly visible, like the bottom of the bag. For the distressed leather that we use, you can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with heat from a hair dryer.
