Vintage Military "Milan" Crossbody

395.00

This truly one-of-a-kind bag is made from a very special vintage military duffle bag that still bears some really interesting stenciling from the original piece. The name “Milan” and “US558” are stenciled on the front, maintaining the history of its previous owner. The reinforced bottom and front patch pockets are made of insanely gorgeous olive veg tanned leather that comes from one of the premier tanneries in Italy. The leather has gone through extensive hand-processing to create a vintage look and feel in keeping with the original duffle. The tote handles are made from chocolate hand-cut + finished belting leather that will also patina and soften with wear. The top can be securely closed with a full separating zipper in the same gorgeous olive leather to keep your treasures safely inside. The fully removable cross body strap is made from a vintage linen fire hose and has been deemed the most comfortable strap on your shoulder no matter how much stuff you tote around. This particular hose has only beautiful blue striping, which is really unique. There are two more pockets on the inside to keep track of loose treasures. The inside is fully lined with ticking canvas. Our signature cross detail is hand-embroidered on the offset generous front pocket. This is a very special piece of American history that's equally comfortable for travel or for everyday.
