Week In Review ~ 15 March
We’re feeling the love for leather this week as we check out new carry for the Apple Watch, eye-catching perforated wallets from Tanner Goods and versatile new pieces from Noise Goods, with a notebook-wallet combo to mix things up…
A travel case for your Apple tech
If you’ve got your eye on an Apple Watch, you’ll also want protection for it. WaterField Designs has you covered with their new Time Travel Apple Watch Case. Available in leather with a variety of color options or black ballistic nylon, the case has a soft Ultrasuede lining to protect the contents. The three interior pockets hold the watch charger, extra watch bands or the watch itself, along with an extra small item of your choice, while the main compartment is suitable for the likes of Bluetooth earbuds or a smartphone. The exterior pocket also serves as a handy storage space for your Apple Watch while it’s charging.
Portuguese style for work or play
Feeling in the mood for some swish leather carry that suits a variety of environments? Noise Goods delivers with two new releases, the Odyssey Pack and Lounge Bag. Equally chic in everyday urban settings or when the travel bug bites, each piece is crafted by hand and features an attractive contrast of materials. A combination of water-repellent burel and luxurious vegetable-tanned, full-grain Portuguese leather in Hazelnut or Chocolate makes for bags that will stand the test of time and look good doing so.
EDC made easy
Notebooks and wallets feature in many EDC collections – but not usually as the same item. The CR Signature Notebook Wallet serves both functions in an easy-to-grab-and-go format. Along with a 28-page notebook, the cover has three slots for credit or business cards and pockets on both sides for slipping in some cash or other important items. A mini version is available too if you want a more compact notebook that can still hold cards and cash in the cover pockets.
Tanner Goods takes on texture
A large part of leather’s appeal is the way it looks, but equally important is the way it feels. The Perforated Collection from Tanner Goods understands and embraces this, appealing to the senses of touch and sight alike with perforated Horween Rich Chromexcel leather and Horween Dublin leather across four of their pieces – the Legacy Cardholder, Utility Bifold, Travel Wallet and Journeyman.
