Before you call us crazy for suggesting you spend $160 on a tote bag, hear us out. Yes, tote bags are, ostensibly, nothing more than glorified, recyclable grocery bags with longer handles. Yes, $160 is a lot of money to spend on any bag. And yet, we still really like these tote bags from Bexar Goods Co. Each bag is individually handcrafted the same way everything used to be made before production of everything was outsourced to the far east. One dude or dudette who’s really good at their job, cutting your leather and waxed canvas from scratch and putting it together stitch by stitch. The waxed canvas is water resistant and so thick (22oz) that it will actually stand up on it’s own. The straps are from one of the oldest leather tanneries in the US. It’s a tote bag, but it’s a manly tote bag. Until Bexar, we thought that was impossible.
