Just showing that there are still modern makers out there producing 'vintage inspired' clothing. Ralph Lauren can blow 'hot and cold' at times, but certainly with these bags, they 'have it in the bag!!' They are a faithful homage to the Golden Era. Good heavy weight cotton with herringbone weave in black and cream. Clinched them on Edward B's and Matt Deckard who saw them in London seemed to like them, so they can't be 'that bad!!' [huh] So...these things are out there if you are patient and keep an eye out!! & a bit of luck too.
