3 Carry-all Canvas Bags for Men

Men’s bags have come a long way. “Man-bag” stigma no more, it is perfectly acceptable for gentlemen to carry bags. With the busy lives we all lead and the ability to work from anywhere (thanks to technology), bags are a necessary item in a busy man’s life. So let us show you 3 different lightweight styles that are perfect for hauling your gear around town.

The Duffle
We not only like this old school style because of its practicality, but its functionality as well. This Owen & Fred duffle is the perfect weekender or gym bag. Rugged enough to carry all your stuff, ample space, and handsome enough for everyday use. Speaking of handsome, have you seen the coordinating Dopp kit? It’s awesome, right?

The Tote
Sometimes the most functional bag is a simple tote. But not just any tote will do. This Winter Session “Garrison” bag is handmade in Colorado with coated canvas and natural leather straps. Carry your water bottle, files, and laptop in a convenient carry-all. It’ll look good on you!

Book Bag
Lightweight and minimal, this new book bag from Poketo is the perfect solution to when you just need to carry a book, a tablet or a magazine to read. Throw in your wallet, phone and keys and you have an awesome commuter bag. Man bag? Um, yes. But don’t worry, it’s still manly.

This time of year everyone is very busy running around trying to keep up and get things done. So we thought we would put together a few suggestions and created a few gift guides that we will be posting here on the blog each week for the month of December.

This week’s guide is dedicated to gifts for her. You will never go wrong with a pair of boots, are we right ladies? But if buying a pair of boots makes you feel like you are only contributing to her shoe habit, (Not that there is anything wrong with that!) may we suggest some other ideas? How about a new bag for work or a pair of colorful earrings? Or perhaps some colorful cozy socks or some well designed notebooks she can throw in that new bag? Whatever you decide on, you will look like the perfect gift giver with a little help from us. So, come on by the shop and let us help you pick out the perfect gift for her. Did we mention we do complimentary gift wrap too?

Have a great week!

This time of year everyone is very busy running around trying to keep up and get things done. So we thought we would put together a few suggestions and created a few gift guides that we will be posting here on the blog each week for the month of December.

This week we focus on the guys. Besides an exquisite pair of new shoes, we think accessories are key! Because most men like to wear their things to the ground before replacing them, we are suggesting some great looking personal items for your favorite guy on your shopping list. Whether it’s a brand new watch, an oiled canvas backpack, a handsome leather wallet or just some really fun socks, we got you covered. See you soon?

Have a great rest of the week!

What to Wear Wednesday: Coclico “Natali” Ankle Boot

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. 

What to Wear with Coclico Natali
So the kids get to be shiny and new with their back-to-school clothes, so why can’t we? Hence the reason for this what-to-wear Wednesday’s back-to-work post. What a better way to celebrate the kiddos going back to school than with a little fall treat for yourself after the long summer. We love the Natali boot from Coclico. Part ankle boot, part clog, and a whole lot of sass, we would wear this with everything! For those of you in a casual work environment, pair them with your skinny jeans, silk top and long vest for a laid back yet polished look. Need to dress up for work? Wear them with tights and a knit dress or a wool shift. A new tote to go with your fall ensemble would complete the look. Oh, did we mention they are really comfortable?

Featured re-souL items:

> Coclico “Nataly” wood bottom ankle boot, made in Mallorca,Spain.
> Winter Session “Garrison” tote, made in the USA.

What to Wear Wednesday: How to Wear Red T-Strap Wedges.

What to Wear with Red T-straps

 

Awe, summer in the PNW. One of my favorite things about summer is the variety of berries we get to eat. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, we like them all!  So this weeks color palette is inspired by the blues and reds of summer berries.  We love these fun new red t-straps we received from Kudeta. Wear them with skirts and dresses for work , or give your boyfriend jeans a feminine touch in lieu of your sneakers. The soft leather will make you feel like you are wearing gloves on your feet. And who doesn’t love a red pair of shoes?

Featured re-souL items:

> Kudeta red t-strap wedge shoe, made in Italy.
> Color block tote by Winter Session, made in the USA.

What’s in the ‘Garrison Tote’ Bag?

We’ve been wanting to start a new series called “What’s in the Bag” on our blog for quite some time now. Beyond our amazing collection of footwear, we carry a nicely curated selection of accessories, which we continue to expand upon over the years. We’d like to showcase not only a great bag, whether small or big, but also its capacity for containing your everyday essentials.

Today we feature the Garrison Tote from Winter Session. Winter Session is an American manufacturer of thoughtfully made bags. Their story began in 2010 in Chicago, Illinois, but today continues in Denver, Colorado. Their focus is on traditional methods combined with innovative technology, which strike a perfect balance between utilitarian function, durability and aesthetic appeal. And better yet, they source all of their materials here in the US. To top it off, each bag is lovingly put together by hand.

Constructed of natural canvas and vegetable tanned leathers the Garrison Tote has many functions, spanning from work to play. It would be the perfect companion for a picnic in the park, day at the beach, weekend get-away or even for your daily commute. With four outer pockets, two inner pockets and a spacious inside, the tote is a lot like a Mary Poppins bag. It can pretty much fit everything but the kitchen sink. The side compartments are perfect for holding a bottle of wine, umbrella or water bottle. For your work day, in addition to what we have pictured, it could fit a laptop and a lunchbox along with other daily necessities. We hope you’ll love the Garrison as much as we do. Without a doubt it’s a dependable bag for your next adventure.
