You can have an entire capsule wardrobe made up of staple pieces the likes of chinos, minimal sneakers and sweatshirts, but it won’t quite be complete without the right leather accessories.
Leather is a versatile option for accessories such as men's belts and bags and if looked after can last a lifetime, making it a relatively sustainable option to add to your rotation. Here are five leather accessories to complete your look.
Wearable leather accessories have become big business in recent seasons and this lanyard coin pouch by Campbell Cole shows why. With a removable paracord lanyard, it can be worn around the neck or pocketed as a regular zip wallet, the choice is yours. Made from vegetable tanned leather which will take on a unique patina with time, this coin pouch is made in England, and built to last.
A full leather bag is an opulent purchase, but one that you’ll likely take great pleasure from. Crafted from full grain Tuscan leather, Bennett Winch’s tote bag is made by hand in England and is a surprisingly versatile piece. Wear it over the shoulder on a day out or carry it by your side for a luxurious take on a shopping bag.
For those who work remotely, chances are you’ll find yourself carrying around a laptop on more days than not. A well-made, stylish laptop sleeve is an essential then, and Mismo’s is right up there with the best. Made from vegetable tanned leather, it’s as durable as it is good looking.
A well-made belt is often the finishing touch that makes all the difference. Knowing this, Carl Friedrik has put plenty of effort into crafting its Blade belt, which is characterised by its solid brass hardware and distinct buckle. Veg-tanned Vachetta leather is used, which will soften beautifully with time.
For some, real leather isn’t an option which is where vegan leather comes in. Steele & Borough utilises it for its wallets, making them out of lightweight, P.E.T.A approved vegan leather. Simply designed and made with exacting detail, this wallet is the slim-line solution to your cardholding needs.
Washbags are often overlooked, but these bathroom essentials are necessary for those constantly on the move. Escuyer’s are made from full-grain leather, which has a beautiful tactile quality to it and will age well. Use this to store your grooming products or as an alternative clutch bag while on the move.
