Show Off Your Inner Designer with Lexdray’s New Symmetry Collection

It seems that in today’s crowded backpack/suitcase landscape, everyone is going minimal. The seven or eight colors of yesteryear are gone in favor of neutral shades; grey and greyer, black and blacker.


The team at Lexdray has come up with a slick new lineup of gear to add to the mix. They’re calling it the “Symmetry Collection” and have done an excellent job of mixing a simple blue/black two-tone without being boring.

Since they’re the official suppliers of MLB players across the league, all Lexdray bags have to stand up to travel, batting practice, and anything else thrown their way. The brand’s Symmetry Collection takes a noticeably nautical turn, starting with the rip-stop nylon that each bag is constructed from. The mesh-fused material is water resistant and the diamond-shape end result is very, very handsome.


The collection is five pieces in total and ranges from the standard Rome Pack backpack to the Mumbai Messenger, which is perfectly suited for dangerous bike rides through the city to your next destination.

While the Symmetry Collection is limited to 500 pieces per style, Lexdray has a solid lineup of other bags to suit just about any fancy. And with prices starting around $200, consider it an investment in your style and protecting your gear. You’ll thank us next time you’re stuck in a downpour without an umbrella.

Hook & Albert Allows Travelers to Adventure in Style

Similar to the way a stylish rug beautifully ties a room together, a proper set of accessories has the uncanny ability to dramatically elevate one's personal style. Despite the system of accessorizing seeming to be one of fashion's core tenets, finding a suitable one-stop-shop is like finding a needle in a haystack. Knowing this to be true, entrepreneurs Adam Schoenberg and Cory Rosenberg — who first met and bonded at a wedding over a shared affinity for colorful socks — elected to alter this unfortunate fact facing the men's fashion world and founded the accessory-centered business, Hook & Albert.

As the duo built its foundation by offering an extensive selection of timeless accessories, it wasn't long before Hook & Albert began dabbling in the sector of travel. From carryalls and portfolio bags to weekenders and accessory totes, the business soon offered more than just standard outfit-accompanying fare. With summer right around the corner, two of Hook & Albert's essential travel items look perfect for any amateur or avid traveler: Its water-resistant Overnight Bag and the pocket-heavy Dopp Kit.
