A beautiful, reliable, and well-made backpack can be your best friend. I always walk around carrying tons of different stuff, from my laptop to several cameras, to gym clothes and cables and books and what not, and a backpack just makes it so much easier. Especially a nice leather backpack, because you can just beat it up, wear it in, let it age, and it will only get more beautiful. I love the golden hardware on this beaut’ from Ghurka as well — it makes it even more of an exclusive addition to my wardrobe. I tried to really replicate the black and gold theme with the rest of the accessories, from watch to tie bar and even the book I’m currently reading perfectly matched the look ;) I traveled to Canada with this guy as my hand-luggage and aside from its looks, it really made for the perfect companion with a laptop bag inside, as well as a ton of space for the rest of my stuff. Definitely consider investing in a top-quality bag of theirs, I think it’s worth it.
