The Chester


  • Details
    The Chester is inspired by newspaper messenger bags of the early 20th century. A messenger for the 21st century, the Chester beautifully combines this deep pewter leather with an accent of black leather and a pop of silver accenting. Whether carried as a crossbody, arm bag, or hand held the drape on this bag is divine. Interior removable pouchette compliments the functionality of this newest addition to the tony B. collection.

    Raw leather and Shedding

    I chose to work with raw leather because of the type of bag it creates, loose and pliable allowing the true nature and aroma of the leather to express itself. My other goal was to minimize landfill waste that would result from using fabric liners. Often this type of leather will "shed", but will become less over time. Please keep this in mind when considering your tony B. purchase.
