Handcrafted, meticulously finished American leather. J.Crew has faithfully re-created the beautiful, oil-tanned mailbags carried by the U.S. Postal Service from 1868 until the 1970s, when the original leather satchels were replaced with blue nylon bags. Designed to improve with age, our hand-oiled, hand-stained, hand-burnished postal messengers are sewn by experienced artisans on century-old machines. Each piece of leather is carefully selected for quality; each historically correct heavy copper rivet is set by hand. As a result, each "original" leather postal messenger is one of a kind, with its own unique character. Buckle-strap closure on flap. Interior back-wall patch pocket. A Collector's Item. USA. 1" adjustable shoulder strap with leather shoulder protector fully extends to 46". 11 1/2"H x 15"W x 5"D.
