Style Pick of the Week: Billykirk No. 478 Khaki Carryall

The classic weekender bag to (hopefully) take on your next trip.

Maybe it’s the fact that it’s Memorial Day weekend (traditionally a very travel-heavy weekend!) or maybe it’s the fact that we’re all getting a bit stir-crazy these past few weeks, but it just feels like the right time to shop for one of the best weekender bags, does it not? And the rugged weekender bag in question is going to more than get the job done when it comes time to hit the road again: We’re talking today about the Billykirk No. 478 Khaki Carryall, a classic weekender bag that just so happens to fit right in with the rest of Billykirk’s American-made leather goods. You’ve heard about the brand on the blog before, to be sure, and it’s high time you got acquainted with them if you’ve never picked up some made-in-America gear from the New Jersey-based brand. The Billykirk No. 479 Khaki Carryall is a recent addition to the Billykirk line, one that goes above and beyond what you’d expect from your traditional weekender bag. To wit: If you’ve been packing for weekend trips or overnight jaunts using a logo duffel or an athletic-minded gym bag, those days are over. This stylish weekender bag is well-made, durably designed and made to be packed up, tossed in the back of your ride, and then not fretted over. The rugged 20oz. waxed canvas and full-grain vegetable-tanned leather can certainly take a beating, no matter how overstuffed your car is.
