Gear: Bespoke Bags by Ian James NY

Sometimes you just want something different, something handcrafted, in todays world of mass produced and disposable products it is always nice to find craftsmen. Ian James is a designer who wants to give each customer something special, be it a carry on bag for a weekend getaway or a messenger bag for the everyday commuter, each bag is special and made here in the USA.

Most bags are made to order, each is handcrafted by Ian using materials sourced from American companies. Every bag is functional, durable, and well built,  but also timeless and casual. Constructed of 18 oz water-resistant cotton canvas, cowhide leather, and top quality hardware means these bags are built to last a lifetime.

Bags range from between $125-$250 with smaller accessories starting around $30. If you don't see something in the readymade collection, you can always custom order a bag, selecting style, materials, and colors.
