The Return

The Satchel

An all leather bag is never cheap, but there are two kinds of expensive things that one should splurge on: timeless pieces that look good with everything in your wardrobe and well-made items that lasts forever. A leather satchel is both and they seem to be everywhere this winter. Billykirk crafted one in Horween leather especially for Need Supply, J.Crew offers a soft, washed version and Lotuff's double-gusseted style is ideal for gents with a lot on their place (and extra dough in their pocket). With its English schoolboy roots, the satchel has an old world charm but inside, today's bags boast features like smartphone sleeves, business card pockets, laptop dividers and removable straps—which turns the shoulder-slung bag into a smart briefcase.
