the tucker & bloom messenger bag is hands down the best bag I’ve ever had in my life- waterproof ballistic nylon clad. 8yrs still going strong, can hold laptop, and a bunch of records, but also quite small when not full. lifetime guarantee😉
I suggest doing a deeper search, they’re pretty spendy from the site, but one can often find cheaper from stores that odered and now on sale
I’ve got a bit of a collection of Porter bags, pricey but will last and last…worth a look at their website. I’ve just checked if a 12" will fit in any of the larger ones and success with a couple including this one
Memorial Day sales in the US always make me get stuff I always thought were too expensive but at 60% off seem fine. Somehow G-Star always ends up in there somewhere with the usual Bonobos suits to get me through the year.
I’ve also got a Porter Lift 3 way briefcase that holds a 15" laptop and can either go over one shoulder like a messenger bag or or as a rucksack with two shoulder straps. Is brilliant for work but you can’t get records in there.
I’m in the market for some shorts! Preferably on the slimmer/tailored end of the spectrum, without venturing too far into ‘Do you know who my f-ing Father is?’ avec either deck shoes or Tom’s territory
