So amongst all the madness of the last few weeks, I have found the time to finally take advantage of one of the best parts of living in China: low cost, bespoke goods. In four days, I take ownership of my first round of custom made shirts and a beautiful Italian wool suit (photos to come). But today I took delivery of a leather satchel bag I designed and had made.
I wanted a satchel that could hold my day-to-day needs: a 15 inch Macbook Pro (plus cables), a poncho (essential for China), gym gear (shoes included), but that could also be an overnight bag.
Here is the result, which I am stoked with. Total cost: $A100.
