Day Four of our "What to Pack?" SeriesWhen I was in college, I borrowed my father’s camera for an introductory photography class I was taking. Dad was a photojournalist with the Army in Vietnam, so when he delivered the camera to me it was still in his U.S. issued, army green shell bag with a well-worn leather strap. I loved that bag and needless to say when the class was over, I returned the camera but kept the bag.
The year was 1993 and that Christmas, under the tree, was my very own shell bag, complements of Dad from Duluth Pack. If you have never heard of the Duluth Pack, get friendly immediately. Their products are timeless, guaranteed for life, made in the USA and beyond reasonably priced. And, if an endorsement from Delicious is not enough, what about Barney’s? Duluth collaborated with the New York fashion force to produce an exclusive line. And, out of respect for Duluth, I am not one to drop names but I can tell you Barney’s is not the only retailer who is interested in their wares.
Priced at $80 and available in a variety of colors.
So what do you think, is the return to all-American craftsmanship for you, or does it make you go running to your Chanel?
