We’re lucky to have some of our loyal customers share Billykirk leather and canvas bags as gifts, and even luckier to hear from the recipients who are wearing their new items with pride. Here are just a couple of holiday Tweets we’ve received– plus a collection of three testimonials delivered to us earlier this year in the span of two days.
Chris, got the bag yesterday:) I love it!! Thanks again for everything.
Have a great day,

Thank you so very much. The carryall arrived yesterday; it is absolutely perfect. My six-month search for the bag to meet my needs has ended. Hooray. Your personal attention is unmatched. I will be a devoted member of the Billykirk family!

We’re thankful for all of our customers and advocates!
Fall morning T rides in Boston are typically full of scarves, tweed jackets, textured stockings and no shortage of leather satchels. They are less typically filled with chatter, as people attempt to wake up before 8am meetings. But one woman on my train didn’t refrain from complimenting a man for vintage-looking good looks. Here’s a snapshot and sound bite from a recent encounter during a work commute:
“I like your leather bag: It’s really classic. Where did you get it?”
“I wish I had a cooler answer – I actually found in J.Crew. I had them show me how to use the shoulder strap. I liked that it was a little bit different. It felt old, even though it’s really new.”
“Yea, I see that.”
“I had a really expensive bag before, but to be honest it fell apart, and now I’ve had this one and it’s going strong. I looked into these guys, too, the designers, and they sell a lot of nice things.”
They do sell a lot of nice things… Including his leather schoolboy satchel (available at J.Crew but customizable – and also available in black – through Billykirk).
Thanks to Anthony, who works in Copley Square, for letting me capture him on his way to work. Here are a couple of other items he mentioned to add to your Billykirk wish list:
Can your bag survive an attempted mugging? Customer Michelle Hay says Billykirk’s leather satchel did. Read why she wears it proudly.
Wanted to pop a quick note to you in appreciation of your quality product. I was mugged in Paris by some rather vigorous street urchins but (much to their chagrin) they were unable to break the strap of my Billykirk, and trust me they tried. I have a No.95 Satchel. Your bag saved me!
