Guest Baggage: Brady Gelderburn



Indigo Slims blog author and denim designer, Jessica L., sent me these photographs of her 18 month old Brady Gelderburn fishing bag. The bag is one of the largest in the Brady range and I questioned Jessica on her selection of this specific style (and on why the bag's strap was already so frayed after so few months of use). She replied: "It's quite a big bag for me and i have the strap long, but i am also guilty of overfilling - i use it every day as my handbag & for work stuff. it's also picked up a little indigo from my jeans! occupational hazard."

My own Brady inventory includes the diminuitive Norfolk, a Brady tote and a Japan-only rucksack. But I've always coveted the oversized Gelderburn as a travel bag every since I saw Michael Palin toting one around in his (recommended) BBC documentary, Around the World in 80 days (1989).
