Covered briefly when we first looked at the J. Crew Spring 2009 collection, this limited edition postal bag is handcrafted and "meticulously" finished in American leather. The postal bag is a replica of mailbags used for more than one hundred years by the US Postal Service before they moved onto canvas bags. "Designed to improve with age, our hand-oiled, hand-stained, hand-burnished postal messengers are sewn by experienced artisans on century-old leather machines." An excellent bag for the everyman. Available now from J. Crew.
