Leatherworkers Billykirk open their first store
“Never trust a man with two first names,” the old saying goes.¹
To which we reply, “you’ve apparently never owned a bag from Billykirk.”
Because their bags are trusty. Their bags are natty. And the brothers who make them are opening their first ever retail shop today on the LES.
Billykirk began in L.A. fifteen years ago. Migrated to the East Coast in 2005.
These days, their line is made in-house and by a group of leatherworking Amish in Pennsylvania.
And damned if those buggy-racin’ bastards don’t make a helluva bag.
For business and beyond bags, grab a rifle sling-inspired claw buckle belt, for starters. You’ll get compliments.
And ditch the money clip for one of Billykirk’s custom leather card cases.
Hangs on a raw steel chain.
Because you never trust a man with light fingers, either.
