Our U.S. Postal bags originate from 1950-1970. Each carried by the most stolid field tester on the planet - a U.S. postman. Rivet placement, thread quality, stitch pattern, seam allowance - each bag was designed impeccably to withstand the rigorous of its duty; and each bears the unique patina from its time in service.
Is it a surprise that these bags survived over 40 years to hang at your side? No - the only surprise, perhaps, is that durability could be so beautiful
