The Porter Satchel

Bexar Goods designs bags for the active man. Their leather and canvas goods are built to travel and take a beating- yet have a classic, timeless style. I'm liking their new Porter Satchel which I just got a glimpse of on their Instagram account....

As they sum it up, "this bag is rugged, simple and stout. It has one main compartment that can generously accommodate your essential electronic companions, dopp kit and clothing to last you easily for a weekend, it not an extended weekend away from the daily grind." 


Like all quality made leather goods, the Porter Satchel is built to last. And the patina, which darkens over time, just gets better and better...

Each bag is handcrafted by a small team of creative, intrepid craftsmen in Bexar County, Texas, the heart of the Texas Hill Country. They know how it's done...which is why I love this satchel. It's an investment worth every hard earned penny. See all of Bexar Goods, which includes canvas bags, leather bags and accessories, here.

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...
