“You’re wearing that, I didn’t know you wore that.” The “that” Mr. PQ is referring to is an exquisite leather and copper bracelet he bought for me while on a recent visit to our manufacturing partners in Mexico. It is also the “that” which has been on my wrist constantly for the past 6 weeks, how it took him that long to notice is beyond me. The man is a stickler for fashion details. This is never more apparent than when he is talking product design and Apple accessories. Mr. PQ can spot a hand pounded copper rivet on a backpack or a Japanese nickel cast zipper on a briefcase from a mile away. While the aesthetic details drive his designing mind, functionality governs the genesis of any new leather, tech-lifestyle products. It’s a match made in heaven.
The hybridization of some species can be an Indominus Rex type disaster, not so the marriage of 24 oz wax canvas and full grain American Steer leather when it’s crafted into a new line of backpacks and briefcases. Allow me to insert a note of gratitude toward Universal Pictures for their release of Jurrasic World, in which Chris Pratt screams across the screen on a Triumph Scrambler , the same weekend we had selected to release our new line of gorgeously versatile backpacks, and briefcases, inspired largely by Mr. PQ’s mid life crisis aka “the beast” aka Triumph Thruxton.
To be bequeathed with the PQ ampersand, a backpack or briefcase design needs to stand up to the rigors of a daily commute, passing through 4 seasons of slush, snow, sweat and slop, while still retaining it’s rugged beauty. Mission accomplished! We are fairly certain that if you are the poor tourist plucked up and digested by Tyrannosaurus-Rex, your Pad & Quill Backpack would live to tell about it.
Our new line of Backpacks and Briefcases will go with you from the conference room to the cottage and back again, and will easily become your go to bag for all the adventures you pursue.
Check them out and we think you will agree!
