Ever see a set of bags that stare you right in the eye and say, “do your worst”? No? Well, strap in because Tennessee-based bag and accessory maker Loyal Stricklin is here with their Brush Brown Collection of bags that dare you to try. This rugged line is built around their #10 waxed duck canvas, aptly nicknamed “Brush Brown”, and includes their Classic Rucksack, Rayland Backpack, Weekend Duffle, and Ryder Rucksack silhouettes. In addition to the Brown Brush canvas, all bags feature Horween chromexcel leather, antique brass hardware, and hammered solid copper rivets.
With fall approaching, any one of these four bags will have you both fashionably and functionally ready for whatever life throws at you from pumpkin spice latte conventions, hardcore hiking off the grid, and everything in between. And yes, judging by the quality of craftsmanship and materials used, they will only get better with age, if you can imagine that. I’m daydreaming about the potential whiskers on the canvas, patina on the leather, and wear on the hardware and rivets. Beautiful.
Available from $298 at Loyal Stricklin.
