Upstate Stock was born out of the simple fact that American manufacturing of the highest quality is still out there, the same manufacturing from decades ago that is both at a standard that very few countries can match, but also affordable. Over the last few decades, there has been a stark decrease in all areas of American manufacturing; factories and mills that were once thriving are now disappearing. Why were the factories that once made our jeans, shirts, and accessories for decades and upon decades going out of business? Why was there more “made in America” clothing over the last few years and fewer and fewer of the factories that were once the backbone of a country that was the benchmark in clothing manufacturing? The standard of American manufacturing had decreased significantly. Are there still factories out there in the US that can make goods to the standard American manufacturing was known for? The answer is a resounding yes…lots of them…still plugging away after decades and decades, and they are affordable.
The King of this collection, The Bowery Weekender serves many purposes. It is roomy enough to easily stretch to a week’s worth of supplies yet collapses in size to fit in tight spaces. Versatile handles allow you to carry it three different ways. It’s both rugged and luxurious, perfect for the Bowery then and now.
The American-milled waxed-canvas exterior is sturdy and water-resistant. Soft leather trim details include a subtle embossed Barking Irons fire shield and leather grip handles for comfort. The fully-lined interior features Japanese railroad stripe and removable cotton pouch* for smaller personal items. All copper hardware adds a nice color detail and will age well with time. Made in the USA.
*Copper snaps attach the interior pouch to safely stow your smaller, more delicate traveling effects. Universally docks in all bags in this collection.
