"Nautical" for I don't know what reason, but still, it's a quite stylish weekend bag.
Once again, this was actually not from any one of the usual suspects in terms of Mod or vintage shops, but actually from Blue Harbour via M&S. Which just goes to show even in the most unexpected places, you can find something Mod.
It's all in the details. The deep blue contrasted with the red and white piping on the strap is quite bold, a pattern usually favoured by old-skool barber's shops, seaside rock ... oh and the Union Jack. It's an undeniably classic style and it's what attracted me to this bag over the black or brown leather bags that are usually offered by Ben Sherman and the like. One can imagine throwing it into the corner of your hotel room, opening it up to a neatly-packed set of perfectly folded button-down collar shirts and jeans, and maybe a pair of smart brown brogues, putting them all on and then going down to walk on Brighton Beach.
In fact, I don't need to imagine because I've basically done this already.
