The Tuesday Steal: The Satchel & Page Warehouse Sale Offers the Best Deals on Leather Bags for Men

As you take stock of both your travel gear and your everyday carry essentials, perhaps you like to invest in the best leather goods for men, the kind of gear that lasts — and lasts, and lasts. But there’s a catch with shopping for stylish leather goods: The process can often be expensive, so what’s a guy to do? Here’s my best answer — head right now to the Satchel & Page Warehouse Sale, a well-crafted offering of handsome and rugged leather goods for men.

This rather astounding sale is offering deals on quite nearly the entire lineup of Satchel & Page leather goods, from the brand’s famed Leather Weekender to its Slim Mailbag and even the brand’s Padfolio. These pieces are heirloom-worthy, made from rich brown leather designed to get better over time, to say the very least. And the deals are just as great, running anywhere from 15 percent off to 30 percent off the best men’s leather goods.

The Satchel & Page Warehouse Sale doesn’t tend to stick around very often, and it’s no wonder why: When you can get an exceedingly handsome, well-crafted leather weekender — with plenty of packing potential — why not knock off a few dozen bucks to snag that bag for under $600? Precisely, my friend.

Even the brand’s smaller goods are on offer in the Satchel & Page Warehouse Sale, including a stylish leather backpack. A word to the wise: These pieces from Satchel & Paige do arrive lightly used, and yet, should still be in great enough condition to allow you to make your own mark. Remember: The Satchel & Page Warehouse Sale won’t last forever, so shop early and often.

The Thursday Buy: Gear Up for Your Next Road Trip With the Satchel & Page Leather Dopp Kit

As you plan out your last summer road trip or gear up for a fall getaway, the right everyday carry essentials can be crucial — crucial, if overlooked all the same. That’s not the case anymore with Satchel & Page, though. A longtime favorite of the blog, the brand specializes in everything from the best waxed briefcase to the most durable everyday carry bag on the market, and you can add the handsome Satchel & Page Leather Dopp Kit to that list, too.

Gone are the days of packing your toiletries in any old kit and calling it a day. The right accessories go a long way in terms of safe storage and easy packing, and the more you upgrade your travel style — say, with one of the best travel watches, for instance — the cooler you’re going to look and feel. If it sounds simple on the surface, that’s because, well, a little goes a long way, and the Satchel & Page Leather Dopp Kit drives home that point quite nicely indeed.

Best leather dopp kit for men.

It’s the kind of everyday carry essential that’s become a specialty for the heirloom-focused brand, made with fine Italian leather and fashioned with a lifetime guarantee. To say the Texas-based company has gone above and beyond with the Satchel & Page Leather Dopp Kit is an understatement. It’s even finished off with a waterproof, navy blue nylon lining for durability and a nice touch of stylish contrast.

It doesn’t hurt that the Satchel & Page Leather Dopp Kit is perfectly compatible with any one of the best leather bags also made by the small-batch brand — add one of the best dopp kits to your rotation, and you surely won’t need any other EDC essentials for your next weekend getaway or summer vacation. And while the Satchel & Page Leather Dopp Kit is an investment at $175, it’s the sort of upgraded travel essential you can feel very good about owning — and again, that’s an understatement.

It’s the best men’s weekender bag for a reason, and incredible attention to detail is only half the story. The soft oiled leather will show variations in color over time the more you use this bag, which — trust me — is going to be quite often, if I had to guess. Solid copper rivets add a durable finishing touch to the Satchel & Page Carryall Bag, which is further reinforced by antique brass hardware. Every little detail has been considered in its construction, including the lovely Tobacco Suede lining. That lining makes it a reliable and safe choice to share those crucial, aforementioned everyday carry essentials, too.

Interior zipper pockets, a laptop storage pocket and a quick-grab pocket for your phone are all thoughtful design touches, and two D-ring additions give you more carrying capacity on the exterior of the bag, too. The small notes have been carefully curated, and the big-ticket items, like the design, the rich leather and the excellent carrying capacity, are all accounted for, too. Better still is the fact that the Satchel & Page Carryall Bag comes with a lifetime warranty, a detail you’re not going to find all that often as you shop around for the best weekender bag for men. If you want a weekender bag that’ll get better with age, one that’ll grow with you and allow you to hit the road again in style, you want the classic, heritage-worthy Satchel & Page Carryall Bag. It won’t let you down, and that’s an understatement.

That is, the time to hit the road again in style with one of the best weekender bags for men will soon be upon us, and if you’ve been reading the blog, I hope you’re prepared for what lies ahead. I mean that in the best way possible — hitting the road again, even in a car or via a quick train (or bus) trip should be enjoyable and just plain fun.

The Satchel & Page Gladstone Weekender is one of the best weekender bags on the market, ready for quick getaways and rugged adventures alike. If you’ve kept up with the blog, you also recognize Satchel & Page from a weekend style guide or two, but it’s always worth revisiting a brand making heirloom-quality leather goods of all types, including this refined leather weekender bag. Why go with a bag like this one instead of, say your tried-and-true athletic logo weekender? The proof is in the pudding, my friends, and that means this bag has plenty more style points and even more functionality than the bag you’ve been lugging to the gym — it’s made specifically for weekend getaways, season after season.

The Product Review: Satchel & Page Slim Mailbag

Fit for the hills of Greece and the NYC commute, too: the Slim Mailbag from Satchel & Page.

Fit for the hills of Greece and the NYC commute, too: the Slim Mailbag from Satchel & Page.

As you go about improving your sense of style, it only makes sense that the details take on an added importance — as they should, and that’s the case with one of the best leather bags for men. Style upgrades in areas both big and small definitely contribute to a broader package in terms of your personal appearance. And there are a surprising number of companies allowing guys to get great quality for those upgrades while supporting up-and-coming brands (blog favorites like Pistol Lake and Apolis definitely fit this mold). Satchel & Page has certainly made a name for itself doing that, thanks to an initial Kickstarter run of simple yet handsome bags that raised nearly $230,000. The product focus has expanded since that time to include leather jackets and more, but its staple products — especially its well-known Slim Mailbag — are just as high-quality as ever.

I had the chance to chat via phone with founder Daniel Ralsky as I hopped on a plane to Michigan last month, and I had the good fortune to get my hands on the Slim Mailbag as I also hopped through Greece at the start of August (check out more on that trip here). And this rugged leather bag for men has proven every bit up to the challenge of navigating both international air (and ground) travel and the rigors of commuting in NYC. (Editor’s note: Before we dive in, although this bag is available right away, certain products — like the brand’s new line of belts — do fund via Kickstarter or the brand’s Web site).

This refined leather bag for men is, generally speaking, remarkably well-made and will absolutely only get better with age. It’s the type of piece I’m excited to get more use out of, because thanks to the excellent, rich leather, it should tell quite the unique story. Already, the patina is changing and actually looking all the better for it. It comes with a lifetime warranty and crucially, it feels like it could stand up to that test. The leather is thick yet not too stiff out of the box, ideal for a bag that was asked to do a lot right away, including lugging around my laptop and Issara leather laptop sleeve, plus various notebooks. Contained within the bag are also compartments for an iPhone, pens and business cards. The body of the bag itself has broken in remarkably well, a testament to the quality of the leather.

A leather shoulder strap rounds things out comfortably, and thankfully, it’s not at all tiresome to wear. The rest of the piece from Satchel & Page is quite remarkable in terms of quality. The 6-8 oz. rich brown, full-grain leather gets its rugged good looks from a hot stuffing method using oils and waxes — custom made by the company’s tannery, to boot. As you can see in the above photo, the bag is already beginning to take on unique nicks and scratches, which only make it look better (in my opinion). If you’re looking for a sleek, boardroom-ready briefcase, this isn’t the bag for you — but those who need something stylish, rugged and effective at carrying around the essentials will be more than happy to hear it stands up to the test. Note that this bag is three pounds, so it’s by no means a remarkably light carry if you only have a few items (say, not even a laptop).

But for those who like some history with their everyday carry, this bag’s got that, too — it’s inspired by the same style of bag carried by the U.S. Postal Service in the early 1900s, so it’s certainly up to a rigorous commute.  Officially as far as dimension go, the bag runs 11″ by 14.5″ wide by 4″ deep (so those with laptops running at 15″ should probably look to the brand’s larger, regular Mailbag). Hand-hammered copper rivets and antique brass hardware also lend the bag a lived-in look.

Like some of the brand’s other products, this bag isn’t cheap up front, but it’s certainly durable and long-lasting enough to justify the price. Note that the relatively similar-in-looks Montague Leather Satchel from J. Crew retails for about $100 — if you can’t pony up the cash right now, that’d provide a slightly flashier approximation. It isn’t, however, the decidedly more casual waxed canvas and leather laptop bag that J. Crew also sells, which goes for just under $100. Yes, Satchel & Page’s Slim Mailbag provides both more sophistication and higher-quality leather and hardware than its peers in the market (although Navali’s Mainstay Messenger Bag would be worth your time as well if an in-between option was needed).

Not all will find Satchel & Page‘s rugged bag appropriate for their commute or their office, or with enough space to lug everything around, but the durability and quality combination is to be commended. The leather is rich and durable, the fastenings and hardware are sturdy, and the space is, for my needs, more than adequate. It’s the type of bag that looks great now and will absolutely improve down the line — hopefully, in both looks and performance.
