Why the Leather Backpack is Your Best Friend for Summer

Think you can't wear leather in the summer? Think again. Mr. Essentialist shares his go-to backpack for warmer days ahead.


There's something to be said about keeping things handsfree, especially in a place like New York. The city's subways, if anything, require two things: Dauntless confidence and exceptional balance (the latter is achieved mostly via a sturdy grip, the former by sunglasses). But what of your mid-commute text and email obligations, or even the casual skips you make on your Spotify app? Here's the thing: A briefcase, while often exceptionally dapper-making, limits your multi-tasking prowess. Instead, replace it with Skagen's sleek and supple leather backpack, which craftily features a hidden (yet fully accessible) back pocket. Put simply, it's become my constant companion for travel and work.
