Palmer & Sons – Leather Couture for iPad

Anyone who has read this blog for any length of time knows I have a weakness for gadget bags – especially great looking, well-made, leather bags. There's something about the smell of leather that just slows life down. Sorry PETA, I can't help myself.  I undergo some kind of natural intoxication when I come in contact with luxury leather items.  Not sure what the problem is, but if you recommend a treatment I'll look into it.

Palmer & Sons out of Vancouver has taken gadget bags to new heights.  For the purposes of this article, I'm just featuring the iPad Hip Bag No. 19, but every single one of their products are worth a look-see. No. 19 isn't a minimalist approach to iPad toting by any stretch of the imagination, and usually, I'm all about minimalism.  But, in this case, I say let Apple worry about the minimalist stuff, you work on being the envy of all who WISH they could pull off  this look.  The inside compartment is a single, unlined space, with a loop for the iPad.  There's some customization options available because each Palmer & Sons bag is handmade to order.  At $330, the cost will set you back almost as much as the iPad, so bargain hunters need not apply, but ahhhh… fresh, soft leather (I digress). Choose from Havana brown, London tan, black and oxblood, or you can special order in cognac.  If No. 19 is a little too Janis Joplin for you, check out Sleeve No. 14.

I too am a bag slut. So glad I’m not alone. LOL! Love the blog!

The sleeve # 14 looks good.  The other one is too much hardware.  Imagine how heavy that would get.
One of their retired designs looks like an old case for a pair of binoculars I got for Christmas when I was 10.  Almost 54 years ago.  Still have them. They're in better shape than the case.

You're referring to the retired Workbag No. 11.  I think it is designed around the binocular case concept.  

I agree No. 19 does look heavy. That's the price paid when you stand out from the crowd.  


AmyUpperEastSide – I'm serious about that treatment recommendation.
