Are you slowly jacking up the prices?

Anon--

This is our first full bag run and we've had to adjust pricing to reflect actual material and labor costs. We're sewing everything locally and sourcing best quality US and UK materials. Bias tape is made for us from our own waxed cotton fabric and all the washers and tabs were die cut locally from leather sourced by AC.

Our current pricing reflects what it costs to produce a bag like this. I apologize for the increase in price from the last, more limited release.

@ Anon: All I can say is that having just purchased one, it is a very reasonable price for the overall quality of the product.

I'd opt for the waxed tan twill. It's pretty stunning.

Are these bags large enough to carry a 15" laptop?

Anon: Isn't it the way of the world that prices go up over time? For something quality, that will last, it's obviously worth it.
