Every man could use a good leather bag, particularly one with a classic desgin that only gets better with age. That was the motivation behind the creation of ColsenKeane leather goods, created by Scott Hofert of Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Scott set out to make bags that would hold the things that men use on a daily basis. He wants these bags to be practical and useful. As Scott shared on Bearings, "I often tell out clients that this bag will not really be theirs until they spill some coffee on it or have to run through the rain with it. In other words, use it. Let your life, schedule and reality make their mark on these pieces." 

Scott crafts all manner of leather goodness, which includes satchels, notebook holders, iPhone holders, belts and iPad covers. And he loves to custom design a piece for your specific needs. Just send him an email here.

I particularly like his MicroWallets, offered in tan, brown and black. They have a simple, clean design that exudes a manly sophistication. The wallets hold 6-8 plastic cards, 7-8 folded bills and are small enough to keep in your front pocket. No need for a bulky, unattractive wallet, these handsome holders help a guy keep it simple...

For an overnight stay, Scott's Minimalist Toiletry Case is the perfect way to carry along your bare style, of course. 

See all of Scott's creations here, all of which are lovingly handcrafted with great passion here in the South...
