A quality leather bag you will most likely not find at a local store as they tend to be genuine, bonded or synthetic leather. These types of cheap or fake leather will degrade rapidly and not last very long. A high quality leather bag should be made from full grain cowhide leather which will get better with age. Full grain cowhide leather will show some wear marks which gives it a vintage look to it. The quality of leather should last a lifetime as it won’t flake like bonded leather will.

The bag has room to fit a full size laptop with room for documents, magazines and accessories. This would be perfect for students, professors or professionals looking for a messenger bag to carry their essentials. The stainless steel/brass plated hardware is perfectly placed and holds my Macbook Pro securely with magnetic enclosure. The leather carrying strap is heavy duty and should carry the load of all of your stuff. The bag is incredible easy to wear and comfortable and fashionable.

The interior has two sections with one you can put your laptop in, a zippered pocket that I put my smartphone in and a top zipper so nothing falls out. The back of the laptop bag has a large pocket for papers, documents and magazines. The messenger bags are handmade and the industrial thread is well stitched.

High On Leather makes great leather goods at incredible prices. The fact that this messenger bag is only $120 is pretty impressive considering the quality of leather compared to store bought messenger bags with inferior leather. A comparable full grain leather bag I own was purchased for $320 so you get great value with the High On Leather bags. I highly recommend this bag to anyone that wants a heavy duty full grain leather bag that is built to last and won’t cost you a fortune.

Flying Zacchinis Baja 500 leather Belt Review


Flying Zacchinis is a luxury leather goods brand that produces the highest quality grade, full grain, vegetable-tanned cowhide made with care and hand-stitched wherever possible. The company produces leather bags, belts, and other accessories for guys. I had a chance to check out the Flying Zacchinis Baja 600 leather belt and here are my thoughts.


The Baja 500 features 6 mm thick belt, top grain, vegetable tanned cowhide leather with hand stitching. A Flying Zacchinis design buckle compliments the thick rich leather. The belt comes in small, medium, large and Xl. You can see the size chart on the site to find the best fit for you. The Baja 500 comes in either black or brown belt configurations.






The first thing you will notice is the large buckle on the Baja 500. The buckle is three dimensional and gives a casual masculine feel. The belt features a unique stitching design with burnished edges. The 6mm thickness of the belt makes it the thickest belt I own.


A belt can complete an ensemble and the Baja 500 makes a statement every time you where it. It would look great with selvage dark jeans. The Baja 500 has an eye catching design, quality top grain leather, and unique belt buckle makes it a great choice for any guy. I highly recommend the Flying Zacchinis Baja 500 for anyone looking for a great everyday belt.

Roger Ximenez Tan Saffiano Belt Review



One of the best accessories I like most in my wardrobe is a great belt. The belt can make the outfit your wearing look even better. There is plenty of selection of belts from makers such as Hermes, Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford and more. Some of these belts are good quality while others are of poor quality with a shiny logo attach to it. Roger Ximenez set out to create quality bespoke luxury belts with the best leather and exotic leather materials.





Roger Ximenez is a luxury bespoke leather goods manufacturer and distributor with over 25 years experience crafting genuine leather products. The company was founded by Founder and Master Leather Craftsman Roger Ximenez to establish a line of exclusive, bespoke leather goods.


The Roger Ximenez Tan Saffiano Belt starts with Saffiano leathers are imported from Italy and finished in the United States to exhibit a natural shine. Saffiano leathers are less prone to scratching and are considered some of the finest leathers in the world. The belts are Handcrafted and Made to Order in the U.S. The interior lining is a Nubuck Lining and each belt includes a Signature Travel Bag. The Solid Brass Palladium Plated Buckle has a brushed metal finish and looks classic on anyone wearing it. You can choose from 5 different color threads and belt size from 28 to 44. The belt comes in two size widths from 35mm to 40mm.


At $200 you are not going to find a better classic belt for the money. Quality wise Roger Ximenez offers the best leather in the world. The leather used in the belt is of great quality and the buckle is finished in Palladium. I find designer belts from Hermes, Ferragamo and Louis Vuitton to be too gaudy and flamboyant while Roger Ximenez is for the classic gentlemen.

Hidesign America Charles 15″ Laptop Compatible Leather Briefcase with Front Pockets Review


I was in the market for a new briefcase for work and was looking at high end Hermes and Louis Vuitton briefcases. I was also looking at mid-range Tumi and Coach briefcases and then stumbled on Hidesign briefcases. Most of the briefcases I was looking at retailed for no less than $500 and went up from there. Hidesign offers an amazing price of only $279.99 for a full grain leather briefcase that will fit an 15″ laptop and iPad mini.





The Charles briefcase comes in black or brown full grain vegetable tanned classic leather exterior. The interior is a padded 100% cotton green striped lining. This model has two buckles to close the briefcase and two pockets for accessories such as chargers, batteries, and room for your Smartphone. The interior can fit a 15″ laptop and iPad or tablet.







I have not found a similar briefcase for the price of the Hidesign America Charles briefcase. At $280 this briefcase is in a league of it’s own. I taken this to the office everyday since I got it and it has held up extremely well. Also the full grain leather will only get better with age while cheaper leather will degrade over time.



Why spend thousands of dollars on a brand name when you can get a high quality leather briefcase from Hidesign for less. The Hidesign America Charles is highly fashionable and will fit with either casual or formal attire. The briefcase is ready for all the latest tech devices such as Smartphones, tablets and laptops in one slim briefcase. I have no doubt you will be extremely satisfied with a purchase from Hidesign America.

Kore Essentials Trakline Belts Excel Buckle & Belt Review


Kore Essentials created a unique belt that launch on Kickstarter. The company reached it goal and now sell its Trakline Belts directly to the consumer. The unique feature of the belt is a hidden track is sewn into the back of the leather belt that connects with the buckle to easily move the size 40+ sizing positions.






Kore Essentials Trakline Belts Excel Buckle & Belt comes with either a black, brown, gray or white leather belt. The belt is made from the finest full grain leather compared to store bought belts that feature poor quality Genuine leather. The belt is easy to cut to size from 44″ to 24″. The spring-loaded caliber mechanism makes this belt a truly automatic belt. The EXCEL gunmetal buckle face is perfect for casual and formal wear with a masculine appeal.


I was impressed by the quality of the belt by Kore Essentials. I have a few designer belts from Salvatore Ferragamo and Cartier that retails from $300-$500 and Kore Essentials holds it’s own. The fact that the Trakline belts costs $50 with belt and buckle is a great value. The full grain leather with the Trakline is better than the leather on both the Ferragamo and Cartier belts that I paid much more for. The first thing that usually shows wear on my belts is the belt holes and the Trackline has none so it keeps looking new after many wears.


I believe the Kore Essentials Trakline Belt will last for years with the Full grain belt conforming to your waist. I wore the belt for weeks and the belts still looks brand new. I like the fact I can adjust the belt during the day as my waist expands and my activities change. The Kore Essentials Trackline is by far the best belt I have tried on.

Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 Cowboy Brown Review


I hate carrying my phone, wallet and keys around. Distil Union makes life a little easier by combining the wallet and phone case into one. I have seen other iPhone 6 wallet cases, but they end up being too bulky to be useful. Distil Union has done an excellent job of slimming down the wallet case for iPhone 6.


Distil Union takes a snap-on hard case and then adds an integrated wallet to the back of the case. The wallet is so slim that it just looks like like a snap on case with a genuine leather back. The red pull tab opens to reveal hidden cash and cards. The case solves the problem of having too much things in your pockets.


Overall I believe the Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 Cowboy Brown best implementation of a wallet to a iPhone 6 case. I can leave my bulky wallet behind and carry this sleek and minimalist wallet and iPhone case in one. The Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 is truly one of the best iPhone 6 cases that I have ever owned.

Distil Union Wally Bifold leather wallet Cowboy Brown Review



I have reviewed quite a few wallets and always looking for something new. Distil Union blends the best of a bifold with a money clip. The wallet is smartly designed with easy access to your cash and cards. The Super-slim leather billfold wallet is a front pocket wallet that mixes the best of style, form and function.



The Distil Union Wally Bifold comes in Cowboy Brown and Ninja Black color at $59.99 price. The wallet is full grain leather and the stitching is well made. The wallet has two pull tabs that pull out the credit cards or ID cards. The front pull tab is red that nicely contrast with the brown leather. The back pull tab is brown that blends in with the Cowboy brown leather. The interior has a metal money clip that can carry all your cash.



The slim size is a major plus for me as my previously wallet was a George Constanza worthy fat wallet that would bulge out of my front pocket. The Wally Bifold is perfect size to carry safely in the front pocket. The easy access of your cards and cash makes this wallet worth buying. I normally fumbled with my wallet trying to get out cards to show ID.


The Wally Bifold is a practical wallet that is slim, minimal and functional. The Wally Bifold solves a problem of getting cards out of wallet. The pull tabs and money clip makes this wallet smarter than the average wallet. I highly recommend you check out this wallet if you want a convenient and thin wallet.

Hildeståhl Medium Bag Review


Hildeståhl is a small and independent company, established 2006 in Sweden. The company shut down in 2012 due to production costs and return recently with online shopping making it easier to cut down on operational cost. In addition the market is ripe for men’s bag as before they were considered an afterthought compared to women’s handbags. Now with men becoming more aware of fashion, all the major luxury brands are marketing to men.


The Hildeståhl Medium bag comes in a brown, vegetable tanned, Italian calf leather that will only look better with age. The Medium bag did come in a super limited edition purple (Dark raspberry sherbet) that ended up selling out quickly. Along with the Medium bag, the company also has the Weekend that is perfect for travel. The two 2015 models is the relaunch of brand after taking a hiatus for a couple of years.




At this price range I see other brands use nylon handles and cotton or microfiber interior. Hildeståhl does not skimped on quality for the sake of profits. The company uses the best quality leather, Finnish reindeer suede lining and braided leather handles. The little details is where Hildeståhl stands out from other bags under a grand.




The Medium Bag comes in a nice dustbag that keeps the bag in pristine shape when in storage. The Hildeståhl Medium bag has no logos on the exterior of the bag and only a printed silver logo on smooth leather inside the bag. The bag includes an adjustable carrying strap for crossbody action. Inside you will find a zipped pocket, two small open pockets and a pen-holder. And the other side of the bag is pocket with zip.



Hildeståhl is all about quality at an affordable price. If I had to guess the price of this bag it would be a couple of thousand dollars. The fact that the Hildeståhl Medium Bag cost less than $500 is something that makes this a must have. I believe every guy needs at least one great bag to add to their wardrobe and make carrying things around a whole lot easier. Hildeståhl Medium Bag is the ultimate man bag for the modern gentleman. Hildeståhl limited runs of luxury bags rival Hermes and Louis Vuitton at a fraction of the cost.

Orox Leather Co. Classic Bifold – Natural Review


The wallet is an accessory that pretty much every guy wears daily. The difference between a mall wallet and an Orox is the level of craftsmanship and leather. Orox Leather Co. uses top quality Chromexcel leather from Chicago, IL. The leather is made to last a lifetime and will get years of enjoyment out of.



The Orox Leather Co. Classic Bifold is relatively slim, rugged, and hand-stitched. This is a wallet that will last many years and will look better with age. The wallet keeps it basic with 4 card slots and 1 billfold for your cash.





The Classic Bifold is made to look worn and broken in. You will find some minor scratches in the leather, uneven stitching and cut edges. This adds to the appeal of the wallet as you know this is handmade wallet.


Orox Leather Co. makes only the best leather products and the Classic Bifold is the perfect every day carry wallet for any guy. The 100% Chromexcel leather is top quality as well as the handmade craftsmanship that takes place in Portland, Oregon. I highly recommend you take a look at the Orox Leather Co. Classic Bifold as it’s one of the best wallets I have reviewed.

Satch & Fable Weekender bag Review


I was looking for a nice weekend bag to take on business trips and short vacation and stumbled upon the Satch & Fable Weekender. I was immediately drawn to the leather weekend bag with its rugged good looks and tremendous storage space.




The Satch & Fable Weekender has been updated with a slightly redesign. The company has swapped out the handles to a single handle and carrying strap.

The main compartment in the weekender has room for clothes for a weekend trip. The interior is a dark denim and the exterior is made of natural Morocco leather. The buckles and rivets are made of corrosion-free brass.




The Satch & Fable Weekender is made of premium Morocco leather made from naturally waterproof goatskin that has an aged look. The leather has a pleasant scent compared to other leather bags I reviewed. The bag is handmade using vintage sewing machines with classic design in mind.




Satch & Fable is dedicated to find the best materials to make their leather bags. The leather is free from chemicals smells and dye that other brands are known for. The company considers animal welfare in mind, avoids sweatshops and mindful of the environment.



I was on a mission to find a great weekend leather bag and think I found one of the best bags in the Satch & Fable Weekender. The Satch & Fable Weekender has a ton of room for your clothes and tech gear in a rugged bag. Satch & Fable offers amazing prices for their leather bags and worth a look for anyone in the market for a nice looking weekend bag to take on trips and weekend getaways.
