I love carrying my lexington so much, and the ease of having my most important things so easy to grab, but this Winter being so bundled, it has been a little constricting around my waist on top of a big coat. I designed the Halsey to have all of the easy access that I love from the bum pack, but even easier with cold hands, gloves, and winter bundling. This one has a pocket in the back, to easily slide your phone or chapstick into, it has the built in wallet, as well as a front pocket, and it has the touch of glitz from the solid brass slide lock, to make it stand out a bit more in the evening.
Dimensions: 8" across x 5" tall x 2' deep
After working together for the past 3 years to create the most supple, soft, beautiful, durable leather, my tannery has informed me that they have to raise prices for my custom leather by 100%. We have not shared the entire cost of the increase with you, but we have increased prices by 30%. We hope that you understand our position, and continue to enjoy our local, organic, grass-fed, humane, chestnut tanned leather for many years to come.
The good news is that we now offer three different leather finishes for our bags. Stock in each finish does vary, since we don't have every color in the three different finishes. In the menu where you select your color you will see that there are new options. If there is only the color listed, then that is our Original, untreated, raw, natural leather. If there is a Treated before the color than it means that that leather has been treated with a water proof Resin, and will be smooth, even and shiny. If there is a Treated (the color) Matte finish - this is leather that has been treated with the resin, but then sent to spin in the mill for an hour, to soften up the grain, and take out the shine. All of our leather is from Kinderhook Farm, and Hardwick Farm, and all of the leather has been tanned with chestnut tannins in Montgomery NY, its just the treated leather has a couple more steps to the process. Email me if you have questions!
Note - In the photo of Chris wearing the Halsey - that olive is the Treated, Unmilled, and the kelly is our original untreated leather. More photos of different finishes to follow.
