    whilst checking for some new bag i found a nice canvas bag in the Portfolio of BRONSON

    i was pretty attracted about the kinda vintage design and thought it might fit my daily Outfit

    a couple of weeks after ordering the bag found it's way to Mexico

    the bag is made from strong canvas with nature, undyed leathersling and brass Fittings

    craftmanship is like used with BRONSON items, leather is thick and sturdy and the Fittings strong and well casted

    size is large enuff for my Laptop and some paper-stuff, there is a smaller compartment in the front which can be closed by a Zipper other than that there is no closure for the "flap"

    the bag is extremely strong - meanwhile it stood not only daily usage to get to the Office but also some Business trips stuffed with 2 Computers, powercables and a lot of documents.

    meanwhile the bag collected some dirt - mostly rubbed-off my denims and the leather developed that brownish Color

    shape and function of the buckles are similar to the wartime 45cal shoulder-Holsters, hooks are nicely machined/polished and strong

    craftmanship is splendid and actually i love my mailbag

    there you go - should work ...

    Price is 770 rmb equals 115 USD - due to the fact i do not Need to pay for international shipping and also less customs in my opinion the Price is splendid compared to what you get

    there is also a full leather Version available which also Looks cool ...

    if it wouldn't be that pricey (3.600 rmb equals 540 bucks) i'd go for one ...

    The canvas one is perfect IMO.
    The price is right as well.

    Hi Brice
    I think the stencil on that is a little deceiving , if you look at it again, you’ll see the lower part of the “L” on the last letter of the canvas bag.
    Cheers

    I love that bag and want one bad, but I’ve got too many bags including an original USPS satchel and I hardly ever use a bag.

    Ah sadly when I do use a bag, it’s that one. I’m off to NYC soon and last time I visited I picked up a second one cheap - fifty dollars - now sold to a friend at cost so I’ll see what I can do this time.

    Well thanks anyway for the kind thoughts . Is there a particular place where you find things like that in NYC?

    I can’t remember the name of the shop because I trawled so many but I’m pretty sure someone will chip in with possible places. We were there the at same time as Banksy staged his market stall at the side of Central Park and I saw the stall of graffiti originals and ironically thought they were expensive copies as most people did. I missed my chance to become a millionaire overnight.
