Introducing the Twill Weekender. Taking inspiration from our popular Horween Leather Weekenders, we sought to design a bag with all of the same functionality, but packaged in a more refined look. We dialed in all the details from the beautiful and heavy twill, to the intricate leather finishing. This is simply the best value we've offered on a bag of this quality.
The body of the Weekender is constructed of a heavyweight 18oz cotton twill which gives the bag real substance and shape. The thick yarns create a beefy twill line that lends a great look to the surface. A solid-brass two-way YKK #10 zipper - lined on both sides with Horween leather - gives you access to inside. The interior is lined with a rich brown nylon satin, making it easy to get your belongings in and out.
Both the external twill and nylon lining have a durable water repellant finish to help protect your garments from the outside elements. There is also a single YKK-zippered interior compartment for secure and easy access to your smaller items. The top corners feature brass snaps which secure the ends of the bag to brass D-rings. The snaps allow you to expand the bag to create a larger opening while packing, and give the bag a well-finished look when anchored.
For the leather, we're using an 8-9oz Horween Latigo. All the leather trims are beveled, burnished and hand stained. The rolled handles, which are finished with beeswax, are riveted and sewn to the bag sides for a beefy and durable connection point. The rolling makes them more comfortable to hold than traditional flat handles and an adjustable strap with a shoulder pad provides additional carrying options. The leather accents on the sides and bottom corners create a beautiful contrast to the heavyweight twill and give the bag its signature structured look. Lastly, the brass feet secured to the underside of the bag protect from excess wear.
Similar bags typically retail for $600 - $1200, but with the Gustin model, we're able to offer them to you at a fraction of the cost.
