It only took about 5 minutes for Mark to steal this Urban Southern bag from me. I opened the box, made the kitchen smell like fresh leather, and he grabbed it noting that it’d be perfect for a work trip to California the following day. “Fine,” I said, “but it’s mine.”
We now “share” it, but we’ll see whose shoulder it’s on tomorrow as we head to Florida…
Their Modern Messenger (c/o) has interior pockets as well as a contoured shoulder pad and adjustable straps without buckles – some of the small details that make us use it so much. The thing Mark loves most about it is how comfortable it is on his shoulder – something he often complains about with bags. I personally love that it doesn’t have buckles, a style detail that makes such a large bag a tad more feminine. It’s a simple crafted piece with the luxury feel of authentic leather and is currently #1 in our carry-on rotation.
Urban Southern is based in Monterey, TN and run by a husband and wife duo. Go shop more of their beautiful leather goods!
