We’ve had a thing for Z Ballerini bags since we first learned about them a few years ago. And now that we personally own several of the products, we’re officially hooked. The Z Ballerini line of hand-crafted men’s travel and everyday bags begins with the basics that are anything but basic: distinctive bags built to exacting standards from the finest natural materials.

With great attention to detail, designer Mike Ballerini uses hand-selected natural materials designed to age with character and style. All products are:

  • Water-resistant, hand-selected leather hides give shape and structure to our bags
  • Edges that are hand-glazed and finished and a scratch-resistant surface that remembers only the deepest of scars
  • 100% virgin merino wool felt provides every ZB bag with both a water-resistant outer shell and natural inner cushioning
  • 100% organic hemp rope gives our handles their superior core strength, while hemp canvas keeps a lid on the valuables
  • Exquisitely engineered hardware latches and high-end Lampo zippers combine polished beauty with rugged functionality
  • Established in 2013. Crafted for the Detroit Man. Created by a Detroit Man and perfectly at home the world over.

Just unzip Johnny Jr. and open yourself up to the possibilities.  Whether it’s on a squash court or traveling first class, it’ll give you a new appreciation for what a duffel bag can be. And you’ll never settle for less.

Would you park a hot sports car in a carport? Then what are you doing carrying around your laptop in a faux leather bag? Well now you don’t have to. Wesley is here. This laptop case is made from 100% virgin merino felt and calf leather, with two metal snaps that make sure your laptop stays put. There’s nothing faux about it. Just genuine luxury, inside and out.

Mr. Understated has everything you’d expect in a top-line briefcase: two roomy divided sections, a front pocket to hold your phone and other valuables, and a bottom cushioned for a long day no matter where your day takes you.
