As the party season approaches your go to carry bag fills up with all of your favourite fashions for after work drinks and fancy festive dinners – and so does your man’s!
In an effort to stop those Oliver Sweeney leather shoes and SABA gingham shirts going straight into the backpack, we’ve sourced a super masculine leather duffel from Indepal.
Wandering into the elegant and old world Brisbane Arcade, we stopped at the window of Indepal and admired the thick leather and strong stitching wrapped into elegant handmade bags.
The leather journals, messenger bags and travel goods stood out with their raw and earthy textures.
The classic duffle in a dusty antique tone is exactly what every man should cart their Hugo Boss ties, Christmas socks and converse high tops around in.
The carefully crafted duffle exudes vigour and strength with hardy stitch work, strong zipped compartments and a powerful shape.
The heavy leather bag has a distressed finish, a removable strap and enough room to hold those clothes for after work Christmas dinners.
We fell more in awe of the quality workmanship and robust style when we heard of the romantic tale behind the brand – in 2012 owner Pat Fleming proposed to his now wife at the Taj Mahal, India. Wandering the streets hand in hand, they spotted a raw leather bag and began selling their own at the local markets. What started off as one bag at a time in India has lead to the well known brand in our local city, Brisbane.
Head into Brisbane’s charming mall this Christmas and sling a powerful Indepal duffel on the arm on your man.
