A well-made leather product is an investment worth making. The durable material will last years and often ends up looking better the more worn in it is. Even better if the product features a timeless design and won’t fall prey to passing trends. With that in mind, we’ve found a few quality leather accessories for men that you’ll be able to keep for years to come…
This versatile accessory by Killspencer transforms from flat folio that can hold a tablet, magazine, or even laptop, to a boxy dopp kit. Great for travelling, the interior is lined with waterproof white tarpaulin to protect from spills. The Dopp/Folio 2.0 is made from full-grain leather, which gives it a very raw and unique look.
Melbourne-based brand All The Kings Men craft all their beautiful leather products by hand locally. Their Modern Satchel is a great option for work. It looks professional and sleek and delivers a lot of functionality too. Pockets on the front allow you to easily access your most needed items, like phone, wallet, and keys, while a large internal compartment can easily fit a laptop and documents.
Minimalist and elegant watches are what Simple Watch Co. specialise in. The Explore sports a very modern look but is made to withstand an active lifestyle. It features a 200m depth rating, which most fashion watches don’t have. The watch’s Italian leather band is complemented nicely with stainless steel components and stitch detailing.
Though all Bellroy products are made with high-quality leather, the new Designers Edition collection takes it to a whole other level. The range takes a very minimalist approach to product construction, meaning the leathers are often left raw to minimise stitching or cutting. The Zip Wallet is a beautiful everyday carry option, with space for up to 12 cards, cash, and coins.
At least one good quality leather belt is something every guy should have in their wardrobe. Royal Republiq’s New Lava Belt is a nice option; made with a beautiful, soft leather and handcrafted in Italy. The style’s elegance is rounded out with a gold-look buckle. The cognac shade delivers a tonne of versatility, great for every day wear or special occasions.
Though technology has made our lives way easier and more convenient, the abundance of cables, cords, and chargers that all our devices come with can be pretty annoying. Luckily, This Is Ground has made a sleek, and functional, leather accessory for us to house them all in. The Tech Dopp Kit is a stylish way of keeping all your tech neatly in one place.
Crafted from a single piece of leather, this sleeve by Mujjo both looks impressive and is really functional too. It can hold an iPhone 7, with dedicated space for a few cards too. The brand has used a high-quality vegetable tanned leather to construct the sleeve, which is finished with a wax to extend its durability. It’s a beautiful piece that could easily become part of your everyday carry.
