• Manufactured for the active Gentleman
    We aimed to design the perfect stylish yet practical sports bag which could contain all the gears and activewear needed for your workout activity, a durable duffle for the man on the go that combines functionality with an original and elegant touch. A roomy bag to let you dash around in style, and then seal off sweaty gym goods when the time comes. It can be easily carried on the shoulder while riding a bicycle or a motorbike on your way to the gym: its long and adjustable belt can be worn across your chest to secures the bag on your back.
    The leather handle placed on top makes it easier to hang it on the gym’s locker room racks. A leather double barrel cord secures the opening of the bag with a lock (made in leather as well), which once released reveals a generous capacity lined in cotton fabric.
    Two pockets, one outside and one inside, have been placed to store small objects like keys, wallet, earphones and any other accessory you may bring up with you. On the backside, near the shoulder belt, a second zip enables you to access the interior of the bag without having to open it from the top.

    Hand painted in Switzerland
    A beautiful tattoo-like painting on the front side makes this bag even more original and exclusive. Designed as sport bag for real Gentlemen, we created an illustration - with the help of Swiss artist Sergio Simona - that recalls the sportsmen of the early 1920s, giving the bag a true vintage touch. Each bag is hand-painted! The illustration is not printed or stenciled, it’s the true result of the mastery of Sergio Simona’s skilled hand. That’s why every bag is unique.

    Personalized with your initials
    We aim to deliver something that you can call really yours. That’s why we give you the chance to personalize your bag with your initials. They will be hand-painted by artist Sergio Simona (as for the illustration).

    Hand made in italy with the finest materials
    The materials composing this bag are chosen among the finest Italian tanners. You will immediately feel the genuine grain of the calf leather, which is incredibly soft to the touch and makes this bag very light to carry. The same quality can be found as well in the hardware used for the zips and the belt, they feature flawless finishing and mechanical functionality. The interior is made of cotton canvas.
    Made in Italy by the finest craftsmen, the authenticity is guaranteed. Have a look at the close-up pictures above and examine carefully the perfection of the stitching, the attention to details and the fine grain of the leather. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Made to last a lifetime
    The leather of this bag will age in time assuming a patina which will even enrich its aesthetic, just treat it with the same care you will use for your beloved leather jacket.
    Don’t worry for the hand painted parts, we use a highly resistant waterproof paint. Your bag will accompany you for many years!

      Even if the leather used is resistant, we discourage you to expose your bag to humidity or scratching the surface deeply. However, water stains don’t compromise the leather, just let them dry naturally. Never use an hairdryer or rub the surface with a cloth! This would dry up the leather and probably alter its color. Scratches can be removed with some moisturizing leather cream gently wiped on the surface with a soft cotton cloth. Don’t rub the surface too strongly.

      The bag you will receive has already been treated with water resistant coating to protect it from water and dirt, we encourage you to do regularly the same treatment once a month (depending on the usage) by applying a shoe protector spray.
