The Search For The Perfect Manbag #80 – Lotuff & Clegg Leather Working Tote

January 16, 2012

If you’re one of those anti-establishment types who prefer to spend your hard-earned money on well-crafted, artisan pieces that are made by dedicated craftsman who care more about the type of merchandise they offer than the bottom line, then perhaps it is time to get introduced to Lotuff & Clegg.

Based in New England where their workshops are located, they use only vegetable tanned leathers that are made into totes, briefcases and SLGs. And the tote taking center stage in today’s post is the Lotuff & Clegg Leather Working Tote, a beautifully simple bag that’s characterised by its long shoulder straps that are wrapped around the bottom (thus ensuring strength and durability) with nary a piece of hardware anyway so as not to mar its clean exterior.

Retailing for USD750 each (around SGD970 after conversion), which really isn’t that expensive. Add that to the fact that it measures a good 43 cm by 33 cm means you’re also getting a tote that’s substantial and roomy, and one that can be carried over the shoulder as well. The one in Chestnut (shown above) is as classic as it gets, though it also comes in 6 other colours like Green, Navy and Red.

But the single best thing about the brand has got to be its lifetime guarantee, which covers material and workmanship defects for the life of the bag. And even if it gets ruined by no one’s fault other than your own, Lotuff & Clegg will repair it, for a small fee of course.

Now that’s dedication.
