Suggestions on full grain leather bags?
« on: October 30, 2018, 04:12:11 PM »
Can anyone recommend a brand (famous or not isn't an issue) that uses full grain leather for their products? I am looking for a sling bag and duffle bag. I love unknown brands who produce leather goods that can last a lifetime.

Thanks for the recommendation. I've checked out their Malaysian website, their sling bags are good, will consider getting them. But they didn't have the kind of carry-on duffle bag that I was looking for.

Thanks. But I just want a regular commercially available one for now. I am still unsure of what exact specifications I want my bag to have, so I wouldn't know what I want for a custom one.

Thanks for the advice. Maybe i will get a custom one in the future. But for now, I just want to get one from a store.

I looked at their website, all the products look great. But they didn't have any large leather luggage bags.

Wow! I love their Pilot's bag and Gladstone bag. How was your experience purchasing from them? I assume they don't have a physical store in malaysia? If so, how was the delivery? Do these 2 come in black or they only provide brown colours?

I only bought 1 briefcase from them before, and was quite an ok experience, however it takes a while for the briefcase to arrive as it is make-to-order, and they will keep you posted on the status as well.

I believed they only offer brown leather, which in my opinion is the best choice for this kind of leather goods, as it will age much better than other colours. Mine has developed some nice patina on some of the stretch area, which I absolutely loving it.

Note: their leather scent is one of the best i have ever experienced, my entire room been filled up with the scent once i unboxed it. :thumbsup:
