In 2013 Maxwell Scott Bags started a process of re-defining itself, its message was simple: “To become the most loved British bag company in the world.” By sharing this vision with its customers, collaborators and friends the believe is that it will get closer to achieving that goal. With this bold new vision in mind MenStyleFashion looks at some key pieces of the men’s collection.
Maxwell Scott History
Founded in 2002, Maxwell Scott Bags reinterprets the art of leather craftsmanship for the modern day. The brand’s beginnings can be traced back to a recreational tour of Italy by William’s mother Jacqueline. The discovery of leather goods on family travels combined with strong entrepreneurial instincts saw the potential for a new breed of bag maker.
Drawing on the rich Italian heritage of leather goods, founder William Scott Forshaw began to conceive an antidote to the throwaway fashion culture he observed elsewhere. In its place would be a dedication to the finest materials and a design philosophy influenced by innovative yet understated British design. And so the original favourite the Paolo briefcase was born.
Initially tailored towards corporate clientele, the transition from boardrooms to online allowed Maxwell Scott Bags to realise its potential and expand its collections.
Looking for the finest grain leather Led William to the Italian leather industry in Tuscany, this is where he decided to have all his bags handcrafted. The iconic bags designs would come from its British HQ in York. Over the years Maxwell Scott Bags expanded its range to include handbags, luggage and accessories.
If you look for a leather style attache case the Varese is my favourite choice. This one can hold a lot of documents and equipment like laptops etc.
My favourite business style bag has to be the Alanzo which is a briefcase with functional pockets and compartments including an umbrella strap and organisation panel.
If you look for something smaller the Calvino is the perfect bag to hold your laptop or Macbook with extra pockets for other items.
I love the Flero range of travel bags which come in 4 different sizes S, M, L & EL with the first 2 perfect for the overhead lockers on an airplane. In another article I will take an in depth look at the FleroM as I take the bag on a long weekend trip.
Another beautiful designed travel bag is the Maurizio which comes in one size and 3 different colours, tan, dark chocolate and black.
To carry your suit on business trips Maxwell Scott Bags has the Rovello, this has to be one of the most beautiful suit carriers I have ever seen.
The Farini is another perfect bag for people wanting cabin size luggage. This leather holdall features a floor-to-floor zipped opening, allowing for easy packing.
What is amazing with all the products from Maxwell Scott Bags is that they come with a 25 year warranty.
