New Years Resolution A.K.A. Back to the Gym with Style

Written by Tom Handley Posted on January 7, 2013

With the New Year upon us, and many a resolution being made, the Oregon based brand www.willleathergoods.com, will make your trips to the gym a bit more about form and function.  This washed cotton canvas bag with bridle leather handles and trim has a removable shoulder strap.  The duffle bag will not only collapse to fit into your gym locker, but will double as a great carry-on for your next getaway, or just to work.  This bag has four outer pockets and with plenty more for you tech gadgets.  An average bag takes 75 steps in the production process, but this bag takes over 140 to give its masculine, detailed look. Additional rivets, reinforced leather corners and box stitching, are just a few if the extra steps that are taken to ensure the Duffle bag will stand the test if time.

Sporting antique brass and antique nickel hardware, this tartan plaid lined bag incorporates rich vegetable dyes in the tanning process. These not only give the leather its supple hand, but also imbue the elements needed for the leather to remain soft and durable over the life of the bag.

“The main part of the bag allows plenty of room to put their clothing, large items for their important meetings, and their personal items. This makes for an easy travel while going through the airports or traveling in a car. THE TRAVELER is beautifully handcrafted with heavy weight canvas and handpicked leather to last through a lifetime of travels. I have enjoyed designing this duffle for your personal needs,” said Bill Adler, Creative Director of Will Leather Goods.

Bill was an actor, and living in Venice Beach, CA. During the Screen Actors Guild strike in 1981, he needed to find a way to feed his young family, so he opened a belt stand on the Venice Beach Boardwalk.  In October 2012, Will Leather Goods opened their Flagship retail store on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach.
