Troubadour was born out of a fruitless search for an overnight bag that was simple, well-crafted and could look good in any situation. After realizing that such a bag did not exist, they set out on another journey to create their own. One of the many outstanding results is this Barrel bag, which is the perfect piece to take with you on short overnight trips or use as a daily gym bag. The combination of fabric and leather looks both durable as it does attractive, while the shoulder strap is equipped with technical rubber for comfort. The functional details include a zippered top opening, two external pockets, along with a third located in the interior.

The folks at Upton craft their belts with one simple purpose, to showcase their necessity rather than an accessory. Plus, having a great looking belt is as important as having a nice pair of shoes. As soon as you place your order, they will begin to craft your custom-fit belt and have it shipped out within three days.
Also included in the package is a microfiber dust bag and a stainless steel punch tool for re-sizing. The pieces are handcrafted using Italian leather and come in variety of styles. Our favourite is their Duke, which is a clean and sophisticated belt for formal occasions.

The collaborative hat will be available at UNITED ARROWS & SONS locations starting January 29th.

We still love organizing our thoughts and tasks on paper, writing things down looks like an obsolete thing to do but it’s still one of the best ways to remember important details. This handsome leather notebook from Miansai is great for immortalizing mental notes. The navy cover is slightly distressed and it’s finished a cool woven cord and metal anchor fastening. What’s more is that it’s small enough for you to carry everyday.

Gloves are a necessary part of winter accessorizing but somehow it gets over looked, and most of us are fine with simple wool gloves that we lose often.

The collection is set to be available in-store and online on November 19th at NY, LA and London locations. While Japan will see a November 21st release.
