The Classic, Timeless, Traditional Gladstone Bag.  It will become your trusted companion on all your travels, as it secures your most special possessions. 

Please allow us to assist you in creating the piece of your dreams.  Many colors are available.  Many sizes are available.  

The traditional size is generous.  The approximate exterior measurement includes: 22-inch width, 12.5-inch height (this measurement does not include the handles), and an 11-inch depth. 

This may be personalized to your exact specifications.  Your name or message on the interior and exterior.  Or a secret message in the lining.  Please reach out to us.  We are delighted to assist you in creating a most extraordinary case.

Shown in Dark London, also available in Chestnut, Havana, and Black Bridle Hide with a Key Lock Closure.

Solid Brass English Key Lock.   This case is typically lined in dark tan canvas, although other colors are available.  We have a clever customer supply his own lining fabric ... tartan plaid wool.  As you can imagine, it was exquisite.   Please notice our handles as shown.  We have been producing our Gladstone Bag with handles of this type.  Alternatively, you may request handles that match those shown in the photograph at the very top of this page.  Fixed handles (without the brass rings) had been used with the Classic Victorian design.  When ordering this fantastic bag, please consider these options.
Each item in our Bespoke range is handcrafted by our master craftsmen just north of London. Each piece of the leather is hand-cut and the case is completely hand stitched using a double needle saddlery technique. Bridle leather is hand fed with waxes and tallow during the tanning process. The waxes will come to the surface and allow the leather to break in beautifully, creating a wonderful patina that gets better with age. This is a natural product so please be aware that there may be some variation, especially in the lighter colors.
Once ordered, we will create this piece just for you.  Please allow us up to 12 weeks or more for production.
