Slightly Alabama’s “The Highwayman” — a rugged oversize weekender bag, in which the silhouette is loosely inspired by vintage doctors’ bags, is a piece that will stand the test of time. Made from a single piece of 3-4 oz. English bridle leather, each bag is assembled using a traditional saddle stitching technique that takes approximately 50 hours.

Paneling and patchwork, both huge trends on the runways this season, collide in this piece and customers can select their own leather color, hardware finishes, thread colors and size, making it the ultimate celebration of made-to-measure and customization. Produced entirely in Brooklyn, the Highwayman retails for around $2,800.
