Roman Coppola, you know, the guy who wrote the movies Moonrise Kingdom and The Darjeeling Limited, decided in his time off from writing movies for Wes Anderson to try and create the first truly California boat tote. The result is a really well-made, really classic bag. But there is something California about it too—maybe its the mod logo that reminds of 1960s surf brands? I'm not quite sure. Over at The Reed we're carrying an exclusive Pacific Tote Co. Big Sur bag in black and canvas and natural leather ($179). The leather straps and bottoms that will turn from a pale pinkish tone to a honey brown with use and ample sunshine. And, it has a zip top, which I love because it makes it an ideal travel bag. I think this may be my new under-the-seat plane tote. Pacific Tote Co. bags are made in California in small batches.
