Ever so often I get emails from men (and their girlfriends/wives) asking for options that are wallet-friendly, from a non-designer brand (aka no monograms) and something sedate, yet smart.
And honestly that’s not easy. Cheap bags usually have a way of looking cheap, while the others at department stores just look recycled and uninspiring. So after receiving my 5th ‘boyfriend/husband/partner needs a nice work bag’ email this week, I decided to take a look online. It wasn’t long before I checked out Killspencer, and those who have been with me since August 2009 will be familiar with this brand (they did after all sponsor a gorgeous weekender for my 2nd anniversary giveaways).
Recently launched, the new Killspencer Utility Bag is perfect for the young working executive. Truly functional, it comes with a laptop pocket (fits up to 15″), utility pockets, large storage area in the front and a business card pocket. It’s also exceedingly handsome, made of wax twill. Handcrafted in Los Angeles, it’s what I call a true labour of love. And if you find the Killspencer Utility Bag too small, check out the Killspencer Business Messenger instead, another good-looking bag that fits up to a 17″ Macbook.
Retailing for USD395 and USD425 respectively (definitely affordable in my books), Killspencer ships internationally as well.
