Our friends from Birds of Sausalito who recently helped us giveaway a pair of luxury pajamas also has a new line of leather goods. The company has co-branded with San Francisco's Mulholland Brothers,a company we've covered for their line of quality bags before. The new Birds of Sausalito line is done in a deep brown leather they call "stout" no doubt after the dark beer. The weekend bag shown here is known as the Shorthorn and is a classic overnight bag with a generous outside pocket, rolled leather handles and a detachable padded shoulder strap. When you unzip the top center zipper the bag's top stands up and open allowing for easy packing. The bag is nylon lined and inside there is mostly open space except for a single zippered envelope pocket. It's the sort of classic bag that never goes out of style and attains a certain well-worn gravitas as it ages. It sells for $795.
I wrote before about designer Paul Smith's partnership with Triumph to create motorcycles. Smith was also
inspired to make several bags that celebrate vintage Triumph style. There is a messenger bag made to look like a
distressed motorcycle jacket and this canvas weekend bag that features a Triumph on one side and a close-up of the
engine on the other. The bag has leather trim and a vibrant purple lining. It's on sale at
eLuxury for $329, down from $495.
