They say it’s not the bag, it’s what you keep in it.

Apparently they never saw Scholar MFG, a new L.A.-based company slinging bags so handsome you’d wanna carry one even if all you were packing was tissue paper.

Founded by two chaps named Will, Scholar MFG is a spinoff of their digital media company, Gentleman Scholar.

They got into the bag game because, well, they wanted to make something with their hands.

And they did it right, using premium Italian leather and sticking to a simple look.


For the Business Jaunt

Going up to Silicon Valley for a big pitch meeting? This is your duffel.

For Local Roaming

Totes are ideal for hitting the beach or taking reading supplies to the coffee shop.

Also: rounded backpacks, carry-alls and sleeves.

Use a bag this sharp and people will assume you’re doing something important, which could lead to some work.

Then you’ll have something to put in the bag.
