Week In Review ~ 7 June
Traveling in style with Whipping Post, carry that will have sneaker fans buzzing and stylish pieces for getting down to business and getting away from it all. Welcome to the Week In Review…
First-class carry for your travel grooming essentials
Unforgettable sights, amazing people, new experiences…all play their part in creating a great trip. Sometimes, however, it’s the little things that really make a difference. The new Whipping Post Dopp Kit is a small piece of luxury you can enjoy in a hotel, on the road or next to a deserted stretch of river in the back of beyond. Supple vegetable-tanned leather, YKK zips, a handy interior pocket and a design that lets you easily grab it from any end come together in a handsome piece of kit that will look good wherever you take it.
Carry your shoes in the style they deserve
Shoes tend to get a raw deal in the travel department. They’re not the easiest items to pack but that doesn’t mean they should simply be shoved in wherever space is available. The new Summer 2015 collection from the Shrine treats your shoes with the respect they deserve. Available in versatile colorways, the Shrine Sneaker Daypack, Weekender Sneaker Backpack and Sneaker Duffel feature dedicated sections for sneakers (which of course accommodate other shoes too). While the backpack and duffel will fit clothes and other travel essentials, the daypack holds your EDC with ease. A fine way to pay homage to your hard-working and hard-earned footwear.
Classy carry for work and play
Miami-based Miansai are known for their premium handmade jewelry but now they’re striding into the carry sphere with a range of stylish new pieces. Chic designs, quality materials and careful craftsmanship come to the fore in a range that has diverse carry needs well covered, from the office to travel. Water-resistant fabrics, Italian bridle leather, Miansai’s signature nylon cord and custom-made brass hardware are showcased in pieces including a tote, weekender, portfolio, backpack and dopp kit.
Military-inspired, ready for urban action
If your bag tastes tend towards tactical aesthetics, get ready to conquer a range of carry missions with the new releases from BRIEFING. Tough construction means you’re sorted for a variety of demanding situations, with durable Ballistic Nylon and Secure Tack™ sewing to prevent fraying. Pieces range from backpacks and messenger-style bags, to a duffle, tote and travel case., with plenty of external and interior organization options to keep your gear in order.
