The Vintage Messenger Bag by Whipping Post

While there has never been much of a clamoring for the blue shorts-white socks-blue shoes ensemble of U.S. Postal Service mail carriers, the bags they use are actually worth jumping in on. If it’s good enough to lug thousands of pieces of mail through rain, sleet, and snow, surely it’s good enough for your tablet and a pack of Twizzlers.

The Vintage Messenger Bag from Whipping Post is made of 100% vegetable tanned leather and includes a suede-lined laptop compartment, an adjustable padded strap, key lanyard and back newspaper pouch. For $265.00 you get all that functionality in a retro style that harkens back to the postal bags of days gone by. It measures 18.5” x 11.5” x 4”, and if it doesn’t get you missing the days of the milkman, then well, you probably just never liked milk that much. [Purchase]
