There’s a reason men love a duffel bag. It’s a monument to simplicity, the perfect go-anywhere amalgam of a gym bag, weekend tote, Dopp kit, laptop case, and even a makeshift pillow for any treacherously long layovers. There’s only one problem with your favorite piece of luggage: While that fading canvas cylinder may look perfectly at home in your gym locker or the trunk of your car, it doesn’t exactly complement a tailored suit.
Well, until now.
Herewith, we introduce the Jack Spade Mill Leather Wayne Duffle, a carryall with the heart of an old seabag and the flash of a Gucci briefcase. From weekday workouts to a weekend getaway, it’s roomy enough to handle clothes, shoes, and toiletries but not so cavernous that you couldn’t use it to haul just a book or headphones for your daily commute. Best of all, the soft leather develops a rich patina as it wears—it doesn’t get old, it gets better—and reinforced stitching and custom die-cast hardware ensure it will stand the test of time. The herringbone lining adds a sophisticated touch. ($370, jackspade.com)
