Although the tote seems to be the muse in the fashion world right now, as the trend comes and goes, one bag is quietly shouldering the weight of stylish individuals all the while. The shoulder bag. The one that dared to go where the tote did not: around the chest. Let’s be honest, no one likes carrying stuff with their hands which is why a shoulder bag is just so much more practical. Plus it makes you look just the right amount of indie, so keep your hands free to switch your The Smiths cassette with Marquee Moon by Television and go about your day with class. At least that’s what the UES‘ Duck Canvas Shoulder Bag in Beige and Navy would tell you to do.
Made from vintage machine-woven duck canvas that is then over-dyed, these bags can definitely take a beating and will look even cooler for it. Finished out with a veg-tanned cow-hide closure and a 70s Lee-inspired logo, this made-in-Japan bag is ready to store your mix of daily essentials and useless cra- *miscellaneous goods, in the most dignified way possible, and that alone, based on what you carry, is simply a miracle.
