While I was at MRket in January I finally got a chance to see the goods of one Blue Claw Co. in the flesh. I had heard about the brand previously so when I heard they were in the Vanguards section of the show I was pretty excited. Blue Claw was started by two guys outside of Philadelphia (Malvern to be specific) in 2010. Their concept was simple; design practical, durable, affordable and well styled bags and other accessories that could be made in America.
Since Blue Claw’s inception they have grown their offerings from a single bag to two collections, the Urban and Classic. The prices hover around the $300 mark, which is reasonable all things considered. The bags looked to be very well constructed so I imagine they will hold up to a good many years of abuse. The lines were also clean and simple and ornamentation is kept to a minimum, which I personally like. The Ezeiza Weekender in British Tan is my piece favorite out of both collections. But I believe that bags, like most things of style, are a matter of personal taste so it is up for you to decide if these bags are for you. But if they are your style, I doubt you will be let down.
