How do i look after my bag?

Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your leather bag.

Always wash your hands before caring for leather - oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend taking a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth and briskly sweeping the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year to prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often. Simply apply the cream to the entire bag with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using this all natural leather cream for our bags.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag can have a good, long life.

Can I get it monogrammed?

At this time, we do not provide monogramming or embossing services. However, all our bags can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our bags to your local dealer for more information.

Can I get it wet?

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible, so if your bag does get wet, here's what you do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth as quickly as you're able to.

Caught in a rainstorm? Be sure to let your leather bag completely air dry and do not use a heat source to speed up the drying (this can damage the leather). Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape and absorb moisture from the inside.

Will my Bag Smell Bad When I get it?

As this bag is made from real leather, it is likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive it. This will fade over time.

Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your bag in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.

Can this leather bag be made with custom dimensions?

We are able to make some leather bags in our collection with custom dimensions.

If you are interested in this service, please contact us, providing the model requested and the desired dimensions. If this is currently possible, we will then provide a quote.

Please note that any custom bags ordered this way are strictly made-to-order, so will take a little longer to get to you and will be more expensive than the similar model on our site. All custom orders are final and returns cannot be accepted.

Thanks Josh! We appreciate you taking the time.

Not quite what I expected

The bag itself is functional, although the seams are not straight and the cuts of many of the leather pieces are not great. In particular, the shoulder pad does not have squared corners, and looks/feels slapped on. The main pouch strap had no holes punched in it when it arrived, so I had to punch a hole to make it a functional strap. The leather is thinner and less supple than I expected, it is in fact quite stiff and not in the correct shape; this will be fixed with time, but it is annoying out of the box. FInally, the red color is not fast on the leather, and bled all over my pants the first time I used it. I probably need to wash it with leather conditioner or something to clean off the excess, but I feel like that could have been taken care of prior to shipping for this cost of bag.

Hi David,

THE RETRO

I bought the 16 incher and it is plenty BIG. It is well crafted on the outside with plenty of pockets. The inside is well divided with several zipper compartments allowing plenty of storage. The one thing it's missing is inside organization. I would like see more smaller pockets inside the bag to hold business cards, USB cords, ETC. There is great detail on the outside but the inside needs improvement.

Thanks Justin! Your comments have been passed on to our team.

It was a Christmas gift and my grandson loves it! Exactly what he wanted, beautiful leather!

Thanks Loretta!

Disappointed

This bag would be better if the buckle had a magnet button or something rather than having to fasten the buckle every time you open and close it. My husband is going to get annoyed with that. Also, for the price, the inside is too unfinished for what I thought I was paying for. Overall, I am not impressed with this product. Hopefully, my husband likes it because Christmas is a week away and India is a far piece to ship it back to! 😳

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Kate. We're sorry it wasn't exactly what you're looking for and apologize for any challenging logistical issues during this COVID time.

Good Quality & Great Customer Service

I purchased the Retro as a gift for my husband for his new job. The quality of the bag was excellent and the shipping was very fast.

However, since my husband has a bigger build, the strap was not long enough to be worn comfortably. Customer service was wonderful in dealing with this issue. They found several other options to offer in exchange, but in the end we could not find one that would work. They immediately initiated a refund for the item without any hassle.

I highly recommend this company and plan to buy from them in the future. One suggestion I do have is that they add the length of the strap to the specifications of their items or possibly offer the option for a longer strap.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!
