Loafers? Check. Pleated selvedge khaki slacks? Check. Blazer? If the weather’s right. Now the only thing missing in your young business professional getup is a versatile briefcase to carry, and the folks at Oak Street Bootmakers are here to fill that void with their first ever entries into the baggage world — the Utility Briefcase and Tote.
For starters, every bag is made from a 22oz. waxed canvas, and why not? It’s the perfect hard-wearing material that adds a bit of weather protection to whatever it is you need to haul around on the day to day, and, as an added bonus, it’ll age beautifully.
For the daily workplace commuter, the Utility Briefcase is the way to go, as it features handles and a shoulder strap, all constructed from a handsome Horween latigo leather. Two exterior gusset pockets are matched with a large central laptop compartment with plenty of smaller divider pockets for all the business accessories.
And for the casual weekend stroll, the Utility Tote is the way to go, with a slightly taller and narrower shape, and plenty of additional pockets for keeping your belongings organized. Both bags are offered in a nice selection of colors, but you already know we’ve got our eyes on that indigo waxed canvas option.
Available from $150-$277 at Oak Street Bootmakers.
