Choice of bag says something deal about your style and this rugged, super-stylish new weekender holdall with its snaffle bit insignia exudes sporting character—very Ralph Lauren! From the successful design duo behind Grays, established in Staffordshire in the Twenties, the new Barrington holdall is an extremely rugged, handsome piece of kit—all down to the design and to the extraordinary qualities of natural buffalo leather. It feels wonderfully strokable—and like good wine, it just gets better and softer with age. And buffalo has many other attributes.
It differs from cowhide in extra thickness and flexibility you can feel, which translates into exceptionally durable, comfortable luggage. It become ever more supple with age—but unlike cowhide it will not stretch out of shape. Buffalo being one of the strongest natural luggage materials known to man, it is highly resistance to damage or ripping. Furthermore, it is especially easy to clean because its smooth finish and strong fibres prevent penetration from dust or animal hair, making it great for all with allergies. Beyond all these, buffalo leather is simply beautiful, developing a rich patina over time that makes it your own ‘antique’.
Another super thing about the Barrington is its size. Though it fits easily over the shoulder and into the cabin on flights, at 50cm wide by 30cm tall and 22cm deep it is deceptively roomy enough to take everything from your gym kit to your entire weekend wardrobe and your riding kit, and it looks good while it works.
The marriage of unique leather, design and style makes it practical in any setting: the office, on holiday, for sport, business travel and at weekends. It is also about looking good with your outfits—and it comes in three natural leather colours, a rich chocolate brown, smart tan and black for classic style. On the practical side, it has plenty of useful details: detachable adjustable shoulder strap, solid metal fittings, smart-access zip pullers, smart leather straps and buckles, two interior compartments and pockets for purse, phone and other items.
