If you know us at Billykirk, then you know the Thornproof collection wouldn’t be complete without our signature tote. Formerly known as the Simple Tote, the No. 326 is anything but simple. Made in the USA with Abraham Moon & Son's Thornproof Wool and a mix of Horween Black Waxed Flesh & Black Vegetable Tanned Leather, the Commuter Tote features our signature Carryall handles (9” shoulder length drop), the 326 is the perfect tote from getting from A to B. Lined with olive drab nylon, the interior is easily spot cleaned and able to withstand your daily beatings. Whether you’re sliding your laptop or iPad into the interior laptop sleeve or stuffing the tote for an exciting weekend, rest assured all will be safe along the journey.
Please note that the photos shown are of a sample made prior to production. After finding that waxed flesh leather may transfer color onto clothing, we revised the handles and verticle body straps below the handles to be black vegetable tanned leather. For any questions regarding these changes, please contact us at email@example.com.
Thornproof Wool Crafted for over 100 years by Abraham Moon & Sons, Thornproof Wool is a highly durable tweed originally created for hunters and outdoorsmen. Known for its classic salt and pepper appearance, it quickly became sought after by affluent and working men alike. Made with two-fold twisted yarns (as opposed to the standard single yarn), it is the most durable tweed available. The tight weave makes it near impenetrable and able to withstand heavy abrasion - hence the name, Thornproof.
Black Waxed Flesh Made exclusively by the Horween Leather Tannery in Chicago, waxed flesh is a very rare type of leather. A reverse suede, this leather is made by coating the “flesh” side of a tanned hide with a strong, natural wax finish. The wax contains black pigment, and slicks down the organic fibers while also applying the desired color. Because the dye is hand applied and does not penetrate the skin, it has an almost painted appearance - showing the natural hide color on the reverse side and on its natural edges.
