Introducing four sturdy new styles from Aspinal of London’s AW22 Collection

From a backpack to a washbag, the British brand has cut a new collection from durable, lightweight, tightly-woven fabric

Aspinal of London is renowned for its leather goods — but the British brand has recently zipped together a new range of fabric bags for its latest men’s accessories offering. Four designs have been cut from this durable, lightweight, tightly-woven textile. And, from a wash bag to a backpack, the luxury label has trimmed each style with its signature full-grain leather. 

It’s a move away from the leather pieces the brand is famous; a durable, practical collection that can weather any climates, work in any situation and ensure your possessions are safely swathed in a robust, reliable material.

And British ballet dancer Sam Salter, pictured here, perfectly illustrates the fashion-meets-function approach of the collection; at once artistic, adaptable and alluring.

So, if you’re looking to upgrade your existing accessories with a selection of long-lasting, easily-washed waterproof luggage, look no further. Each of the new pieces from Aspinal of London has been created to endure any environment and is available in just black or navy colourways to up those versatility credentials even further. We take a look at the range below…

Aspinal of London Men’s Backpack

We begin with a backpack; itself one of the most versatile pieces of luggage a modern man can own. And, with Aspinal of London’s fabric spin on the style, the British brand has delivered one of the most adaptable accessories available for commuters and jet-setters alike. 

Inside its nylon shell, you’ll find a padded laptop slip pocket to ensure the secure storage of your tech, files and folders. There’s elasticated water bottle side pouches, a leather grab handle also a further zip pocket — a handy space to stash your keys or wallet. And, finished with adjustable padded webbing backstraps and hidden dual zip-top closure, it’s as secure as it is stylish.

Aspinal of London Men’s Pouch

Ergonomic and elegant, these stripped-back briefcases are a new workplace essential. But Aspinal of London’s understated design puts a twist on the traditional leather look. Handcrafted from sturdy fabric, the slimline design may be trimmed with supple leather, but its slip pockets are lined with cotton and the lightweight, tight-weave nylon affords the accessory an air of everyday practicality.

But the best feature of this flat pouch’s design? How flexibly and functionally it can be packed into other, larger pieces of luggage. Whether you’re toting a holdall or taking a suitcase on your travels, the pouch can keep your laptop or travel documents separate — and safe.

Aspinal of London Men’s Gym Bag

The British brand may call it a ‘Gym Bag’, but we’d be inclined to deploy this contemporary, masculine design throughout our entire day. It may look the part in the locker room, but the board room will also benefit from its smart fabric construction — once again accented by full-grain leather and fitted with a detachable webbing shoulder strap.

Both externally and internally, the spacious design offers a multitude of storage options. On its outside, you’ll find a front-zipped pocket that provides easy access to your essentials, while a card-sized slip pocket can be found on the bag’s near-side. Inside, a generous main compartment is divided into two external pockets — one open and one zipped — to keep things simple and streamline your every day.

Aspinal of London Men’s Wash Bag

And, finally, a quality wash bag. Here at Gentleman’s Journal, we’re great proponents of a good wash bag. It’s an often overlooked piece of travel luggage — but invest in the best, and it’ll pay dividends. Nylon offers the perfect material for the job; waterproof and sturdy enough to keep all manner of toiletries stored safely.

Aspinal of London’s design features an internal zip pocket for smaller essentials — be this contact lenses or nail scissors — while a larger external slip pocket provides easy access to frequently-used items, such as combs and compact aftershave spritzers. And, for a final practical flourish, the handy hang loop is cut from the British brand’s renowned full-grain leather.
