Posted on June 14, 2011


Canvas bags in order of work-worthiness

Heritage Leather Co. 16 Inch Mason Canvas Bag

1. Stylish canvas bags are great dual purpose accessories for men who want to keep personal belongings to a minimum- Great for weekends and passable (depending on how heavily waxed or treated the canvas has been) for weekdays at the office, this heavy duty 16 Oz #10 cotton canvas bag from Heritage Leather Co combines the beauty of white textured and wear resistant canvas with the contrast of top grain tan and cream moccasin leather for its bottom, handles and sides. Proudly made in the US and hugely affordable, a water resistant fiber board bottom helps retain bag shape. [$110 and available via Rooney Shop]

Property Of… Alfred Work Bag

2. Losing top spot on beauty:value ratio and living proof that less is more, Property Of… started as a cafe-boutique creating well made apparel, bags and accessories with one simple concept- clean design aesthetic. Combining sturdy waxcloth and tanned leather with coated tarpaulins and distressed canvas, Property Of… bags whilst pricey are the yardstick for hardworking stylish designer canvas bags for discerning men everywhere and their Autumn Winter 2011 collection brings us more of the good life. [$340 and available via PropertyOf]

Hobo Paraffin Canvas No.10 Messenger Bag

3. Form follows function with Hobo’s Paraffin canvas messenger bag. Elegantly casual but (most unfortunately) not suited for the office, these messenger bags in black, beige and olive are immensely versatile and great for creative types in advertising agencies and if I had my way, perfect for my city bicycle riding escapades.
