The G1 earned its place as the centerpiece to the collection as the original and first sleeping beauty to have been revived.
The original we totally fell in love with was part of a suite of luggage that would accompany a family on the European tour of the season. It’s find commenced a journey to visit retired English artisans to find out what it was used for, why a button in lining, a rigid base and soft body? And finally understood that it was a pre WWI laundry bag that was an essential part of the luggage.
We set about to renovate the design in the softest off dyed calf skin maintaining the original double decked handle bases, a long lost craft deemed too labour intensive. We kept the beautiful 8mm wide brass zip but we added a pewter finish to match the Gladstone hardware. The hand stitching across the top and base enhances the level of hand detail.
Lined in a cleanable Alcantara, it is fitted with three multi-functional pockets on one side and a push back pocket for clean clothing, paperwork and laptop. The design is fully lockable with a removable shoulder strap.
The G1 City Bag is a well-crafted practical bag that maintains a classic and elegant appearance to suit a number of occasions.
Handcrafted in the softest of dyed through calfskin leather, the City Tote – Shark Grey features our iconic double backed handle bases with contrast hand stitching and lined with cleanable Alcantara, offering style and function.
The G8 has two zipper closures, if the zip inside is fastened the tote appears very square in shape, unzipped and it provides a more relaxed look. The second zipper is situated on the outer body of the bag in between the handles. Inside, there are two multifunctional pockets on one side and a zipper pocket for extra security on the other. This sophisticated bag is perfect for the modern travelling gentleman.Share to facebookBuy more
