TGIF Shopping: The Trash Bag by Travelteq

Having the right bag is an urban man’s dilemma. Every day is a fine line between being prepared and having to lug around too much stuff. You never know when you’re going to have a night out and need to freshen up or spend a night away from home. And we can tell you that you don’t want to be hauling a bulky gym bag or backpack.‬‬

We’ve been there… Fortunately so have the three founders of Travelteq.

The Amsterdam-based brand has nailed the art of leather laptop bags. Their best selling “Trash Bag” is back with a detachable strap and more versatile pockets. We can assure you, you will tote anything but trash around in these bags. Handmade in Italy, the Trash Messenger is crafted from Florentine Vachetta leather and accented with a high quality, waterproof nylon lining. The new version maintains the clean lines of the original design, large enough to fit a 15-inch laptop, just with a little more room for your goods. They come in three trim varieties including navy, blue and olive all with Fox-colored leather. To make them even more ridiculously useful they have pockets for your airline ticket, mobile phone, sunglasses, and if you’re feeling like a boss – a pocket for your cigars (Sure, why the hell not?).

In the U.S. Travelteq is exclusive to online retailer Roztayger. You can visit them here to pick one up and peruse the site.

Porsche, TAG Heuer team up for Carrera Chronograph honoring the 911, a timeless classic
A gorgeous timepiece in honor of a true classic
TAG Heuer Porsche watches on wheel

There are fewer sports cars as iconic and persistent as the Porsche 911. Performance has improved, and some features like natural aspiration and air cooling have gone the way of the dinosaurs -- but at its core (and in its styling), the 911 is pretty much the same rear engine beauty that Porsche unveiled back in September 1963. It is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, as is a much-loved piece of chronography -- the TAG Heuer Carrera.

So it’s only fitting that TAG Heuer, an equally iconic Swiss watchmaker with strong racing links, has partnered up with Porsche to commemorate the German company’s flagship motor. The “Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche” is a beautiful chronograph and a fantastic bit of engineering. Its styling manages to cram in more references to the 911’s 60-year history than we can count without looking garish or overstated.

Panerai's 2023 Navy Seals watches

If you’re a fan of diving and American special forces units, then it’s time to celebrate. Panerai has released its latest range of Navy SEALs dive watches, and they look good. Four new timepieces are available, though that availability is limited with three of the watches and extremely scarce with the fourth. The whole thing is part of a collaboration that started in 2022 and adds to the already wide range of luxury Panerai watches.

The most limited new watch in Panerai’s Navy SEALs comes bundled with a chance to be miserable on a beach. If you’re one of the 50 people who will ultimately spend $53,200 on the 47mm Submersible Chrono PAM01402, you’ll get more than just the watch. The luxury timepiece comes with a matching travel pouch, an NFT, a collection of “artwork,” and the chance to experience “Navy SEALs Training.”
