Fossil bags for the long haul

A recent chat with some trusted local shopkeepers turned to the subject of good, basic bags that wear well, and a surprising name came up. Fossil, it turns out, make really solid leather goods that get better with age, and our examination of a beautiful and heavily patinaed old shoulder bag confirmed it. And here we thought they only made unremarkable denim and watches. Shown: Messenger ($168) and Duffel ($198), each available in three colours.
