Boden’s smart new range of canvas bags

There was a time – ah, happy days – when the chicest accessory a man could be seen cradling in the Concorde lounge was one of Lands’ End’s thick navy-blue canvas messenger bags. They were the perfect travelling companion – they held all the documents a chap needed, as well as some shaving gear and a book or two.

They’re still available on the Lands’ End website (though not in blue), but Johnnie Boden’s autumn collection has a very smart alternative – a messenger bag in deep, dark navy canvas trimmed with chocolate-brown leather (third picture, £49). And if you like doing matchy-matchy, there’s a nice weekend bag in the same navy canvas for £89 (first picture) or a rucksack, if that’s more your style, for £59 (second picture).
