Hand-stitched with your choice of Irish linen thread color, Nashville's Josh Marx constructs his bags, accessories, and wallets using leathers from the "finest tanneries in the US and UK", resulting in heirloom-quality goods so rugged they look like heirlooms already, and would be, if your great-grandparents considered Irish linen dirty and inferior. Some goods:
Wallets: Include no-nonsense, three-pocket biz/credit-card slips; wool-lined, snap-close smartphone cases with room for cash & cards; and a couple of 12-pocket bi-fold jobs also avail in machine-washable denim, ideal for blue-collar money launderers.
Travel: His Robert Travel Kit's essentially a boxy Dopp, with a washable, partitioned, ticking fabric lining, straps for your razor & toothbrush, and a suede-like exterior made of "Waxed Mohawk" leather, as if those things
could stay up without product.
Tippling: Designed in collab with a local 'tender, the Bar Bag has slots for your wallet, keys, and phone, plus "all the tools a mixologist would need", including a shaker, a roll-up stocked w/ various tools, a cutting board, and a Yarai mixer glass, something your great-grandparents wouldn't have carried, 'cause they wouldn't mix with the Japanese.
