Before I ever thought about putting this site together, I saw a bag highlighted in an issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. I wanted it – bad.
But let’s be honest – there are a lot of bags out there – a lot of canvas – you know, the ones you can monogram, and they come in every size you can think of. And yes, I own several of those and they serve me well. But they can be bulky, not flexible, and can get dirty quickly.
Enter the Skinner and Stevens incredible bags. I was on my way to Charleston Race Week and ordered this bag in large.
What a humdinger! It is surface cleanable, pliable, rain-resistant (it got tested!) …but most important, it passed my test for pockets.
Inside there is a zippered one to stash a wallet or make up and two open pockets next to each other for your phone, glasses – anything needing quick access. And a zip across the entire top. The straps are firm but comfortable. Great for a weekend bag, a hop off the boat to pick up some provisions, or for every day. There is a smaller one, a wristlet and a wine bag. Made in Boston, the workmanship is excellent.
If you have a favorite location that they don’t presently have, you can discuss your project with them – custom is no problem. A seriously great gift for anyone, but particularly for those who have almost everything. And tell Anne and Lisa you saw it here!
