Summertime is the perfect time to jetset - even if it’s only on a weekend trip to the city, country, or seaside. And on your jetsetting travels, you’re going to want a weekend bag that’s as smart and as stylish as you. What are you looking for in a weekend bag? A bag that’s high on form and function - and one made of heavy-duty materials that will withstand a beating. This is the bag that’ll accompany you on your globetrotting adventures - so it’s definitely worth the investment. As you’ll be traveling near and far with this bag, an additional bonus is to look for a bag that doesn’t broadcast the wealth of the owner. Here’s five classic weekend bags that fit the bill:
Classic Duffle | $350 at T. Anthony
For a bag that’s the epitome of understated luxury, go T. Anthony. Quality is guaranteed on this bag - and if it breaks, T. Anthony will fix it for free.
Roma Moto Stitched Leather Duffel | $375 at Kenneth Cole
The all leather construction of this stitched duffel bag makes you look smart and sophisticated.
Medium Duffle Bag | $295 at Filson
Filson’s rugged twill luggage will hold anything you can carry on your shoulder.
Alpha Large Soft Travel Satchel | $325 at Tumi
The only downside of carrying a Tumi bag is that they’re so ubiquitous.
Cambridge Leather Weekend Bag | £1075.00 (approx. $1644) at Swaine Adeney Brigg
For timeless elegance, it’s hard to do better than a bag from Swaine Adeney Brigg. Their refined craftsmanship and their impressive heritage (they made James Bond’s original attaché case) make them the go to brand if you’re looking to splurge.
