The Madly - Fitzgerald
Any well travelled individual will tell you that there is no replacement for a well made and well designed carry-on/tote bag. They serve dual purposes, in that they allow you to bring the essentials and little luxuries aboard the plane to make your flight more convenient and enjoyable, but also can double as a day/shopping bag while you're away strolling the streets of some far away city. The design of such bags hit their peak in the early days of travel, prior to overseas air travel, and though many attempts have been made to improve on the materials used and the overall design, the standards from the days of yore do better and last longer than the new interpretations. Take the bag above, called the Fitzgerald by a company named "The Madly." They take the designs of yesterday very seriously, and each bag is uniquely handmade, designing around materials whose natural characteristics help to convey the Madly's crude aesthetic. They are designed to withstand the test of time.
