I have a pretty tight bag rotation but nothing is set in stone. Challengers are always welcome and Bag Nirvana is eternally just one click away. And though it’s a tough rotation to crack, this Belafonte Ragtime Herringbone Newspaper Bag — which is on some solid Newsboys’ Strike of 1889 energy – has potential.
Made in Japan from a 100% cotton herringbone fabric and done in vintage-inspired off-white and brown, this fully-lined, modernized riff on a classic paperboy bag features two attached snap-buttons at the inside, a strap adjuster, pockets at the front and the interior, triple-stitching at the lining for added durability and a sulfur-dyed graphic at one side.
Size-wise, it clocks in at 43cm x 30cm x 83cm (17” x 11.8” x 32.7”, for those — me — that still don’t understand the metric system), and it’s also sulfurized, which means that the color will fade extra quick in the wash.
