As far back as I can remember, the need to buy a new bag never failed. Whenever I bought a new bag of any kind, one made of synthetic materials or course, it would soon show signs of wear and tear. There was either a problem with the seam, or the external fabric began to feather up showing that fuzzy texture or the synthetic material began to even peel in some areas. Why is it that these kinds of bags don’t last? A question I’d subconsciously asked myself each time I phased through a bag and then stupidly bought another only for it to happen again.
It wasn’t until later that I had discovered leather, and not just any kind of leather but full-grain leather. It isn't a thing of some engineering advancement like graphene or a mad scientist in the lab smelting together different chemical compounds, but more so a thing given to us from mother nature. This stuff, leather, real leather, is the stuff from novels. The kind of stuff you see in a western movie, like a relentless gun holster past down from father to son getting the job done like it was brand spanking new.
So why not buy a bag that will last throughout the years of your enduring and prosperous life? It’s a question I asked myself then and one I’m asking you now. If you look at the cost of a lasting real leather bag, sure it definitely costs more, but in the long run you get some amazing perks out of it. One being, the convenience of not having to replace your bag every two years and re-situating the way you place your items in it. Another being, you gonna receive endless compliments from friends, strangers and foes. So why not buy a bag that lasts.
