Blue Claw Co. and Bespoke Post team up to produce the ultimate gym bag

blue claw co and bespoke posts gym bag sweat variants
It’s not often people use words like quality or style when referring to a gym duffel bag, but the latest creative collaboration from Blue Claw Co. and Bespoke Post throws that convention out the window. In an effort to craft something which looks as proper next to a work desk as it does in a gym locker, the duo’s lined canvas duffel bag is a brilliant piece of craftsmanship. Even the bag’s cotton webbed handles and nickel plated hardware evoke a characteristic of durability typically reserved for top-of-the-line weekenders and duffels. Though unlike top-of-the-line weekenders and duffels, this collaboration touts an attractive price tag anybody could appreciate.

sweat-lifestyle-5Available exclusively in Bespoke Post’s “Sweat” edition box, a cool $45 scores not only the duffel, but a microfiber gym towel courtesy of the athletic company, lululemon. There does exist one caveat, however. Anyone interested in picking up the Sweat box via Bespoke Post’s website requires a subscription to the company’s Box Club; a subscription service which sends members limited edition, themed lifestyle boxes once a month for $45. It’s worth pointing out even those who don’t fancy a subscription still have the ability to pick up the box for just $55, which remains a hell of a deal considering the duffel’s quality. Moreover, Blue Claw Co. offers a similar duffel through it’s own website which retails for $145; you can’t argue with simple math, Bespoke Post’s Sweat box achieves both quality and affordability.

Don’t just take our word for it, Bespoke Post co-founder Rishi Prabhu raves about the production quality of not just the finished product, but of working with Blue Claw Co. “We’d definitely (collaborate again with Blue Claw Co.),” says Prabhu, “they make a high-quality, made-in-America product that we love.”

sweat-lifestyle-14But perhaps the collaboration’s greatest facet is the fact both Bespoke Post and Blue Claw Co. crafted this duffel exclusively for their partnership. During the bag’s conception, a six-month back and forth took place in which both companies exchanged various color swatches, design ideas, and physical samples en route to the final construction.

“We started at the highest level, chatting about what we wanted the bag to represent,” says Prabhu about the design process. “We spent a long time iterating on different combinations until we found options we loved. Then we sampled the options, tested them for weeks, and picked our three favorites.”

sweat-lifestyle-11It’s clear Prabha, the rest of the Bespoke Post team, and Blue Claw Co. have a keen taste for fashion; all three color combinations are both aesthetically charming and perfect for anyone’s personal style. What’s also apparent is the bag itself is already a hit around the bustling streets of New York City. “I’ve already had five bag sightings around NYC in the past two weeks,” adds Prabha, “it’s been great.”
