As we all return slowly but surely to the road, be it through a fall road trip, a stint back in the office or simply a day spent out and about around town, perhaps you’ve realized your everyday carry essentials have been lacking. Particularly when it comes to staying organized in style, it can be a tall order to return to your daily routine without the right gear, and that’s where the remarkable Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief comes into play. It’s a serious upgrade to whatever bag you might be using now (unless of course, that bag is made by the heirloom leather goods purveyors at Satchel & Paige), and it’s one of the best everyday carry essentials for hauling those must-have items to the office or to a day working remotely at your favorite coffee shop (your call these days, folks). Like all bags and leather goods from the Dallas-based brand, its design is rooted in history and its modern look is rooted in functionality, form and some of the best materials you’ve seen put into a lineup of EDC goods.
It’s built with the same approach that Satchel & Paige takes with its full lineup of gear, which was first inspired by a map case used by the founder’s grandfather in World War II. Here, the Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief is also inspired by military bags and is made in Italy from remarkable materials (more on those in a second).
The Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief simply looks incredible and will only get better over time, thanks to the green 20oz. waxed waterproof canvas, which should prove burly and substantial while aging nicely (and keeping your everyday carry essentials safe, of course). It’s lined in handsome Tobacco suede and finished off on the outside with copper rivets for maximum durability at key stress points. Naturally, the exceptional Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief is certainly built to last. Vegetable-tanned French Cowhide leather should also prove thick and durable yet supple, yet retaining a slim profile that’s key to your commute, your road trip or your next flight as a carry-on.
The Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief doesn’t cut any corners, and that’s reflected in the fact that the laptop pocket in the center is strategically placed to avoid scratching your laptop. How’s that for thoughtful, well-executed design? Two exterior pockets also provide easy access to EDC goods, and the included shoulder strap makes it even easier to haul the Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief around town or across the country. What’s more, it’s polished enough to take to the office as you dress in business casual style, but it’ll look right at home with more rugged ensembles, like a flannel shirt layered over a henley with your favorite pair of jeans. Try doing that with a regular leather briefcase, ehh? Point being, the Satchel & Paige Aviator Brief is unlike anything in your everyday carry rotation, so level up and invest in the best now.
