Though poorly art directed in the photo above this bag by Denham would be a great looking general purpose alternative to the business brief. Inspired by a ‘Maisons bag’, the Tool bag features a metal clamshell enclosure and a beautiful leather and canvas construction. Without a shoulder strap it might seem impractical but you aren’t going to be loading this bag with a ton of gear.
I’m surprised that one of their photographs show some errant stitching.
