All the time
People are deliberately forcibly associating canvas items with image labels such as youth and youth, typical such as canvas shoes, canvas bags, etc.
In fact, it is not no wonder that the material of canvas is difficult to relate to delicateness, the texture is rough, and even one-sided ugly, it means “cheap”, which naturally conforms to the unadorned, unrestrained vitality of youth.
But that doesn’t mean that when you’re mature and refined, it’s not worthy of you.
On the contrary, through the elegant image of experience, the use of these pieces will reap the style effect of contrasting surprises.
A few days ago, a small friend left a message saying,
Want to see men’s bags, what is the introduction?
Recently, we TOPMEN have also had several brands, but they are all luxury level, indeed exquisite, and the natural price is not low.
Today the leaves are ready to be crisp, a little grounded, to introduce the most unpretentious
Of course, canvas bags believe that everyone has long been familiar with them, and various brands will come as soon as they open their mouths.
And most people also think that it is actually nothing special, and various styles can be found on the Internet.
But looking through the Internet, you will find that most canvas bags are hanging a “youthful vitality” gimmick, which is indeed not interesting, and in less than a year or two, it is likely that you will be bored with it, and then you are asking for other bags, waste.
The difference is that this canvas bag to be introduced below the leaves,
On the contrary, the more “old” it is, the more attractive it is
Who is the brand, don’t sell it,
Men can carry canvas bags for a lifetime
L.L.Bean Boat and Tote
Regarding L.L.Bean, a classic American outdoor brand, people may be more familiar with the famous duck hunting boots.
L.L.Bean has other subtle things that deserve our attention, and its canvas Tote Bag is another classic.
Many people don’t know that the canvas tote bag, a slightly literary and youthful piece, was first invented by L.L.Bean, who pays attention to durability and rough style.
We won’t dwell much on the history of L.L.Bean, a hunting outdoor brand founded in the United States in 1912.
The predecessor of the tote bag comes from the “ice pack” Ice Carrier (Bag) made by the brand in the 40s, which is a bag created to solve the problem of transporting ice on ice ships and cars to the freezer, so the full name of L.L.Bean’s tote bag is also called
Boat and Tote
In the ’50s, L.L. Bean also introduced another toolkit, the Bell System, specifically for workers.
It is not difficult to see that many canvas bag styles are now replicates of the Bell System, and compared to real tote bags, its handle is significantly shorter and cannot be carried over the shoulder.
In the 60s, L.L. Bean officially launched the tote bag, which quickly became sought after and penetrated into the daily life of Americans due to its convenient and durable characteristics and a slightly fashionable and novel bag shape at the time.
From daily shopping for groceries, to travel duffel bags, to sea vacations, it can be seen, so it is more accurate to say that L.L. Bean’s tote bag is actually a lifestyle bag.
It can also be said with certainty that
Among canvas bags, L.L.Bean’s bags are one of the most collectible brands
Open those vintage second-hand websites, you will find that alongside luxury bags are very affordable brands like L.L.Bean, many vintage fans and people who love Ami Kaga style culture are very obsessed with L.L.Bean’s early Boat and Tote.
▲ Vintage 60s L.L.Bean
The reason for this, Ye Zi felt that there were only two.
As an American outdoor brand with a deep heritage, L.L.Bean’s bags naturally represent pure American retro culture, which is one of them.
Second, it must be nothing more than its durable quality.
From Ice Carrier to Bell System to Tote Bag, L.L. Bean’s masterful workmanship is as always.
The brand still chooses to stick to handmade bags in Maine, USA, to adopt
Crafted from cotton canvas, the heavy, chunky material makes it easy to stand out from the crowd in its class.
Maybe everyone does not have a clear understanding of the concept of 24oz canvas, in fact, most of our common canvas bags on the Internet do not have 20oz, basically around 16oz, how to believe that the quality can be judged.
In addition, the bottom of the L.L.Bean canvas bag has a double-bottom structure, the strap is finished with nylon double stitching, and the bottom sides are also stitched with a V-shaped cross thread structure.
The rich fabric and meticulous workmanship details make L.L.Bean solid and easy to use, and it is said that it can withstand a weight of 500 pounds, which is more than 450 pounds.
This also gives L.L.Bean’s canvas bag the magic of defying time.
Durable, over time, all kinds of wear and tear, for it is a plus, let it slowly precipitate a simple retro feeling.
As a men’s commuter bag, L.L.Bean is really not very sophisticated and luxurious.
But Ye Zi personally believes that when men choose bags, many times they should put aside fame and grade, but to consider whether this bag can truly reflect your character and style.
And L.L.Bean’s simplicity and tenacity fit the characteristics of men.
In terms of overall style suggestions, L.L.Bean canvas bags are particularly suitable for those who wear Rugged Gentleman (rough gentlemen) who love military uniforms, which can be combined with a stronger retro charm, while the Tote bag style can also extract a vibrant and elegant image, with two different masculine colors.
If you’re a gentleman in a suit, L.L.Bean’s canvas bag can also let you change tastes when you’re tired of leather briefcases.
The thick and rough canvas style and your delicate and decent set create a clear contrast effect of style, which is also chic.
L.L.Bean’s canvas tote bags are not expensive, generally three or four hundred pieces can buy one, but the brand also provides semi-customized services, the price will be higher.
For example, changing different material straps, in addition to the basic canvas belts, there are leather belts, twisted rope belts, which can also slightly change different styles.
As well as color matching, and the letter logo on the outside can be replaced.
Finally, let’s talk about the model style of the brand.
L.L.Bean’s canvas tote bags are available in four sizes:
, in fact, that is the difference between small, medium, large and extra-large.
Small is the smallest, with a volume capacity of 8 liters, equivalent to a small bag, or a women’s cosmetic bag, which can only hold small items;
Medium (medium), with a volume capacity of 17 liters, can hold books and laptops, equivalent to a normal office bag;
Large, with a volume capacity of 35 liters, is larger than a regular briefcase and is basically the capacity of a travel bag. Ye Zi personally recommends that men choose this style for commuting, although you may not use so much capacity in daily life, but the larger bag can better match the tall and burly type of man, will not say too “small family”.
The extra-large is the equivalent of a duffel bag, with a capacity of 56 litres, which is generally not used unless traveling for business.
That’s it for this issue about L.L.Bean canvas bags.
Frankly speaking, from the external bag design, it is basically nothing special, you can also find a lot of “the same style” on the Internet, but L.L.Bean’s long-term workmanship and quality can not be replaced, and the imprint accumulated in the distant time is also unique.
