billykirk royal sport bag

How do you make a perfect bag even perfecter?  I couldn’t tell you either… That’s why I rely on the craftsmen at fine companies like Billykirk to figure it out.  Check out the reinterpreted design of the classic No.166 Large Carryall. This version is lighter, sportier and makes for a perfect summer weekender (4th of July, duh) or gym bag. Do you even lift bro? It’s made using a water repellent royal cordura material, navy nylon pack cloth lining, and US made black mill-spec plastic hardware with natural leather accents. Further advancements from the predecessor are the front and back outside slot pockets and two interior pockets with a D-ring to hang keys (the kind of place where you place your keys in such a good spot that you’ll forget where they are… then remember later only to remember how smart you are).  Finally, this bag won’t crumble like a lot of the spineless bags out there… It’s made with a sturdy 20″ lightweight frame it stands 14″ tall and can expand to around 12.”  Obviously made in the USA.

Note, current KICKSTARTER Campaign, click here! It’s about time that we’re able to give our feet a truly made in America experience.  There are plenty of American made shoes, but all too often the ever important sock is overlooked.  Not anymore. Behold Boldfoot Socks! They’re on a mission to create awesome socks for men and women, proudly made in America with comfort and quality you can count on (with free sock insurance just in case). Boldfoot was started to help spark a movement and bring apparel manufacturing back to the U.S. (similar goal to that of obviousamerica!) Currently, just 3% of all apparel sold in America is  made on U.S. soil and I’m no mathematician, but that’s way too low. It’s time to make “Brinking it Back” a reality and adding socks to the mix is not quite starting from the ground up, but it’s 2nd after shoes!  Boldfoot Socks are sewn just outside Philadelphia, PA and ready to take the sock game to a whole new level.  Check out their website here… and their KICKSTARTER Campaign here (again, in cased you skipped to the end!).
