*Update: Bag came today and I am pleasantly surprised. The craftsmanship is bar none and exceeds any prior expectations I may have had. The rich leather compliments the blue canvas so well, and I am sure with age, the bag will look even better. Something I hope to pass on.

Travel Nessesity | Grass Court Duffle
I recently came across this small company out of Hanover, NH (Grass Court Collection) while surfing the web for classic duffle bags. Grass Court Collection, specializes in "distinguished lawn-tennis & yacht club apparel," made for the discriminating sports executives. While the description didn't sound remotely like what I was looking for, I found the site interesting, and continued to peruse, eventually stumbling upon what I had set out to find - a basic canvas duffle with no frills. Jackpot! What really enticed me is the fact that the bags are hand stitched in New Hampshire and come with a triple stitched brown leatherette bottom, medium brown buck leather equestrian handles and a heavy duty white carrying strap. I put the order in and will update the build quality.
