Men's Crossbody Messenger Bag / Attache | Portland Leather Goods

"Almost Perfect" Canyon Messenger Bag

Size Guide

  • Our artisans are picky... in a good way! The quality of our bags are sometimes less-than-perfect and we just can't send them out as full-priced premium bags. These messenger bags have minor cosmetic imperfections that don't pass our high quality control standards but eventually they begin to pile up in our workshop. 

    See the photos above to see what kind of cosmetic flaws make these bags almost-perfect. These flaws include:

    - Color Variation
    - Crooked Stitching
    - Corrected Stitching, which can leave needle holes in the leather
    - Wrinkled Leather
    - Crooked Hardware

    These beautiful, rugged and durable bags are built to last. All "character" flaws do not affect the performance, durability, or longevity of our products.

    Unfortunately, you cannot choose the type of flaw in the bag you want to receive; you will just have to wait for the surprise. Some people (even our own employees!) have to spend a good deal of time looking just to try and figure out what our picky artisans thought was wrong with these amazing Full-Grain Leather Gems!

    Quality guaranteed... if for any reason you are dissatisfied you can return your purchase according to our standard return policy.

    This Men's Messenger is minimal in design, but anything but ordinary in style. We've taken the two leather colors men love best: the rugged Canyon distressed and Grizzly dark brown, and made them into an easy-to-carry briefcase. Two adjustable straps close with sturdy magnets for the perfect mix of security and ease-of-use. 

    Our full-grain leather is the strongest and most durable available, and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow’s life have not been sanded, cut or shaved off. Full-grain is SIX times stronger than Buffed, Upholstery or Genuine leather. Rather than wearing out, full-grain leather will naturally condition itself with use, developing a much sought-after patina and unique character over time.
