I recently read a blog post with suggestions on matching your bags to your Filofax. It struck me that I sometimes do this. Not all the time since it's a little bit of a pain to change out my Filofax just to match my bag, but currently, I just happen to have a matching bag and Filofaxes.
As written in an earlier post, I've been living in my Personal Malden for quite some time now. It's the most forgiving of the Filofaxes I have in terms of capacity. Nothing comes close. So, I've been using it as my everything-in, stay-at-home binder. In my bag, I carry a Pocket Malden in the same ochre color.
And here they are together, with the bag.
|Bag, and Personal and Pocket Maldens|
The bag is one I got about a year ago, along with this other black one I wrote about here.
I love this brown bag! The main compartment is very, very roomy without being massive. The two front pockets are also great for storing a cell phone and other stuff while on the go because they're very accessible, versus digging into the main compartment to pull out a phone. The leather is very soft and thin, making it quite weightless when empty. Although it will tend to patina over time, I don't mind that. It has already gotten a bit darker in the time I've used it. It has a small area where the leather's rubbing off where it hits my hips when on my shoulder, but I found that it cleans out with leather cleaner/conditioner. I use the same brand cleaner as the bag.
Of course they're not a perfect match but they come pretty close.
Thanks for visiting!
