Original Leather Postal Messenger

Original Leather Postal Messenger

You know how the postman in old movies always has a well-worn, great-looking leather mail bag? Well, it's not just fiction. From 1868 until the '70s, the USPS carried oil-tanned mailbags, which have been faithfully reproduced in J. Crew's "Original" Leather Postal Messenger ($800). This gorgeous bag is hand-oiled, stained, and burnished, sewn by artisans on century-old machines from hand-picked leather. Just like the old USPS bags, it's made to last for years, and is large enough to hold a smallish laptop, a book or two, and yes, even the mail.

  • Deployment Messenger Bag

    It's hard not to love a bag that looks this tough. The Deployment Messenger Bag ($95) from Medium Design Group has an obvious military vibe and is just the right size for all of your urban commando gear. The lightweight nylon bag forms to your body better than most bags and has heavy stitching, cold-forged aluminum buckles and an aluminum fuel bottle attached with a micro carabineer.

  • Jerome Olivet Backpack

    Often times you'll find that good designers come from working with great designers from the generation before them. As is the case with Jerome Olivet, whose Backpack ($225) redefines what a backpack can look like. With sleek lines and a formed pod-like shape, it looks great, while also protecting your goods with the same high quality material used by Louis Vuitton in their non-leather goods. You can definitely see the Starck influence.
