The Bridge Bags
What type of Bridge Bag Leather have we gone for ?
We have chosen to select the classic 01 Leather that is known as the Classic aniline leather, we have gone for the classic Brown Conker leather with a few more Bridge Bags in the Black, we have found over the last couple of years – that more Bridge customers have a requirement for the black leather. The Bridge leather in Black has the colour code “20”
The Bridge Bags have also come in to stock in the Number 11 leather as part of the Saddlery Range, it is a more supple softer Bridge leather, not as structured, but it gives the feel to the leather that you get from handling the Classic Conker leather over many years, you know the feel we mean.
So here we have one of the new bridge bags for the 2104 season
This is the Bridge Bag 044593.
It is a stunning looking shoulder bag, having twin shoulder straps and a brass finished zip top closer, the zip is very cleverly hidden by the use of leather flaps on the top of the bag, it gives the effect that the bag does not have a zipper – but for the safety of your goods – it has one.
The front of the bridge bag looks a little plain, but a really nice detail has been added at the bottom, a small slender leather tab with a brass bridge logo button, just helps to add a nice bit of classy detailing.
The original oval brass logo has been used on the front of the bag too, this logo dates back to the early years, the late 1960’s, the tone of the brass has gotten a lot brighter for 2014, going back a couple of years it had an aged look to it.
The base of the bag is plain without any brass feet, handy when placing the bag on shiny surfaces.
The Bridge have gone for the classic brown cotton lining with a lovely detail inside – they have introduced a new Brass Logo that is mounted inside the handbag – more on the logo later – we will do another post on it for you all.
Inside are twin mobile phone pockets, otherwise known as media pockets, great for ipods, smart phones etc. The rear inside face of the bag has a zipped inside pocket, ideal for keys, small bridge purse etc.
