I know that it might seem like it’s a bit early in the year to talk about boats and sailing and beaches and the appropriate bags to carry during those activities, but it’s, like, really super cold where I am right now, and I’d appreciate it if you guys would just indulge me for a moment. I need it. I also need a Black Point Mercantile Signal Tote.
These totes, made of coated canvas and intended to mimic the bold, primary-color look of nautical signal flags, are handmade in America, and they have to be some of the most perfectly preppy beach bags I’ve ever laid eyes upon. They fit the theme without being too precious because of their distressed detailing, which mimics the effect of salt water on actual nautical flags. The bags, complete with leather handles, will run you $276 apiece via East Dane.
