With a heritage dating back more than 150 years, Brooks England is an expert when it comes to vintage-inspired cycling accessories. As well as the leather and metal saddles it's famous for, the brand also excels in creating sleek and sophisticated bicycle bags.
Clean lines, 9-to-5 friendly colours and leather embellishments all add to the classic British elegance of Brooks England bags. They're just right for occasions that put the 'smart' in 'smart-casual'. Swap your briefcase for a plain leather backpack and keep your hands free for phones, travel cards and after-work drinks. Or choose a canvas rucksack with pockets to be the most dapper backpacker on the block. To finish off your short-haul city break look, simply add a linen shirt, some dark grey jogging bottoms and a pair of trainers in a shade to match your bag.
Cotton, canvas and leather are the main materials used to craft Brooks England bags. As well as being tough enough to carry everything you need for a day at the office (or the park), they have a rugged, vintage-inspired feel. If you're heading to an all-day festival, grab a navy canvas bag and team with a pair of mustard trousers and a denim shirt for a hipster-meets-western look. Pop your favourite cosy hoodie in your bag for when the temperature drops. There's even room to pack a spare - offer it to your potential love interests for added brownie points.
