Belstaff is one of those awesome English brands (well, it’s Italian-owned now), a younger and hipper brother of brands with the coveted coat of arms of a member of the Royal Family. Who doesn’t want to be a purveyor to the Queen, like Smythton or Launer? Well, Belstaff doesn’t have the coat of arms, but that doesn’t mean they’re icky. Let’s just say they’re not what the ever-proper Queen would tote.

I can’t imagine Her Majesty would carry this Belstaff Large New York Postman Bag, but it would be right at home on the shoulder of a young fashionista. The bag is a replica of those carried by New York postmen in the 1930s””the description reads, “They don’t make them like this anymore,” and that’s true.


It’s difficult nowadays to find a bag with such dedication to inside pockets as this one. While it’s clearly a mailbag replica both inside and out, those pockets can be used for much more than mail and packages. Buy through J. Crew for $795.

    YOWZA!! While Im sure this bag would last a lifetime, I wouldn’t go near it with that price tag!

    Does anyone know how well the J. Crew leather bags hold up over time? I generally like the styling, but have seen some new bags in their store with scratches already on the colored leather. Thanks.
