It’s not everyday you come across an item that combines your love of denim and leather so beautifully. Meet Sandast’s latest release, the Boston Duffle from their newly launched Denim Collection. The new collection is comprised of a number of bags produced in a limited run using Kuroki Japanese Selvedge Denim and Horween Leather. Among the items found in the collection, we put the Boston to the test for his week’s hands-on feature. Find the complete breakdown below. Photography: Sean Martin For The Primary Mag.

First Impressions

Wow. Simply put this bag is hard to miss in person. The beautiful juxtaposition of denim and leather make for an amazing combination. The tones join together naturally on a classic silhouette that is absolutely perfect. It’s just the right size and doesn’t look or feel bulky. Among other the things, it is not only stylish but extremely functional and would make for the ideal travel companion. You can take it on-the-go by using the handles or throw it over your shoulder with the removable strap. There’s also plenty of storage space with several pockets on the outside and a large internal compartment for all your essentials.

Construction

For anyone familiar with Sandast’s quality of work, you get what you pay for. This bag is no exception and¬†is the perfect alternative to the classic leather duffle. The base of the bag is comprised of Kuroki Japanese Selvedge Denim with selvedge detailing being found all throughout the bag, which is a nice touch. Horween Leather complements the design of the bag and really¬†allows the denim to really shine through. Both materials will age beautifully over time with use.
