Earlier today I had the privilege of spending a little time on the roof of Coach HQ with a couple of recent releases from the men’s offering. These bags are boldly styled, highly detailed and meticulously crafted.
The first is a great looking washed canvas tote, with a contrast leather base and raw vachetta handles and trimming. What is really genius is the removable interior piece, a clear pouch wrapped in leather. Simple and well designed and at a good price. Washed Canvas Beach Tote $348
The second bag is absolutely a piece of art. Coach’s collaboration with renowned studio artist James Nares has been receiving a good deal of buzz and rightly so. This bag is constructed of a single piece of canvas, eloquently featuring Nares’s signature brush strokes. These are not cheap, but considering the price of a Nares print and the fact that these are limited to 175 per color, it is worth rationalizing a purchase. James Nares Tote $798
Both bags were released earlier this week on Coach.com and are available in select stores.
Some of you may know that I have a slight impartiality to Coach and it’s products. But bias aside I want to show you a couple of my most favoritest items. If you have been good, Santa might consider bringing these down your chimney this holiday season.
First, The Derek Boot. Reminiscent of a sturdy, union worker boot from the days of ole. Complete with contrasting white “Vibram” style soles. Let me tell you that despite the luxurious Coach logo stamped on a supple leather swatch on the boot’s tongue, these babies were built for the Brawny Man! They will be perfect for chopping lumber, hiking up mountains, saving kittens stuck in red wood trees and looking butch on paper towel logos. Dereks are also perfect for carrying groceries, hiking through slush puddles, and keeping a firm foothold at holiday roof parties.
Now every man with a sense of style knows that you have to match the shoes with a belt. Luckily, I have just the one. This rustic little number is constructed with Coach’s most durable, toughest leather and solid
Both are available at the Coach Men’s Store, NYC and also on Coach.com/mens.
Shoes: $298, Belt $168
