Filson‘s latest Heavy Tin bags are a prime example of why the brand has remained one of the leading carryall manufacturers for over a decade. Utilized in an array of styles — briefcases, duffle bags and totes in various sizes — the material is not only extremely durable, but also waterproof and stain-resistant with double-coated wax. The bags are complete with bridle leather straps and brass hardware that naturally complement the rugged tan and grayish green colorways. We suggest you purchase these quickly, as these are being offered as an online exclusive for a limited time, only until August 31. Find which of them suits your fancy here, with prices ranging from $110 to $290.Read more

We’re used to seeing strange, quirky and almost charmingly disturbing objects from Margiela like an empty snow globe or a vase covered in rabbit fur. MMM recently released some new additions to their Line 13: Objects Collections, and they don’t disappoint. Some of the less eyebrow-raising items are ostrich and goose feather pens, an embroidered clock and cotton stationery, but they sit alongside notebooks that don’t open, a mini ashtray that clips onto your chest pocket, and a carton of eggs filled with fortune messages. We understand if you need to read that again. Shop the new Objects here.Read more
