Did you see it? The Shopbop coupon code? It’s not the best, but it is something, and if you can spend $1500 (or $1000 I should say, because if you spend $1500 you get $500 off…) then you’re getting the best deal. I know you guys have tons of stuff “hearted” just like I do, so get shopping!! But first, I thought it would be a great time to review my J.W. Hulme legacy bag – also since Shopbop has two colorways available right now, the canvas/leather combo & “bare pewter” leather:
First, all the J.W. Hulme bags are made in the USA AND they are guaranteed for LIFE. FOREVER. That means if you have a problem with your bag, you can send it directly to J.W. Hulme and they’ll fix it. They also do complimentary monogramming when you get your bag!!
For the craftsmanship involved & the lifetime guarantee, the bags are very affordable: the canvas/leather version is $250 and the leather version is $410. My bag is black, but I’ve seen the bare pewter version in person at Barney’s Co-Op and it’s a very pretty, almost “sage” green color – perfect for Spring. The leather is extremely high quality, very thick and sturdy. I haven’t found that mine shows wear or scratches very easily, nor have I noticed the leather color rubbing off on my clothes. Perhaps with a lighter colored bag you will have to worry about dark denim stains, though.
This is the smallest bag I own at the moment, so I did have to downsize what I carry with me all the time, but the inside of the bag is so well organized I love how easy it is to find anything (I honestly missed the organization when I carried my 3.1 Philip Lim a little lately!). There are two inside zipper pockets, one on each side of the bag, two open pockets (good for a cellphone & notebook) and a few pen pockets. There’s a key fob attached inside the bag and an outside pocket on the back of the bag.
Here’s what’s inside mine:
Large Comme des Garcons wallet, large Baggu bag, smaller Baggu bag, a few small zipper Baggu bags, gum, sunglasses, lots of lipgloss, hand lotion…I can also fit my kindle in the back pocket for reading excursions. I carry the bag both ways – by shoulder and crossbody, and I love how easy it is to get into and secure with the lock on the flap.
I’d like to start a collection of J.W. Hulme bags 🙂 There are several styles I love, and I’m addicted to the leather & classic shapes. I also struggle with paying twice or three times as much for bags made in China, under questionable circumstances…you know? Not something I want to do when I get get such a high quality bag like J.W Hulme’s made in the US and guaranteed for life – for around $450.
I highly recommend picking up this bag, you’ll wear it forever. Besides what’s available at Shopbop with the code, you can also buy J.W Hulme online at:
