I’m a huge fan of purses without a ton of logos. I’m one of those under the radar kind of folks.
I tend to find these bags because I am always half-shopping wherever I go.
I pop into stores, I check out their wares, I go to independent arts & crafts conventions (like the ones in Toronto, the One-of-a-Kind Festival) and go to artsy boho areas where independent artisans hawk their wares.
I also walk down and around areas like Queen Street west of Bathurst, and I never avoid a store just because it’s for men. Men like nice looking leather bags too!
Consignment shops, are also great places to find logo-free, great bags.
Basically anything WITHOUT ostentatious logos on it, is a logo-free bag to me. A small logo or a plaque is fine.
So.. you kind of have every single bag out there that is pretty much logo-free. If you want a bag with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on it, it takes a little more finesse to find, but artisanal leather stores tend to do the trick.
The bag I own that is 100% logo-free is from Aridza Bross but I bought it in Paris in some little shop, and I’ve never seen her bags sold here yet.
That said, here are a few options I found online:
Sole Society has some really damn good looking bags. I’m tempted to buy a few except for the fact that they’re probably all made out of vinyl or fake leather which I am not a fan of.
I like the look of this Raleigh option for $50
I also like this Bryer bag for $50
You can also try Banana Republic for logo free bags. They’re pretty good for logo-free items.
J.W. Hulme Emerson Satchel Bags at $525 are very pricey but they’re made in the U.S. and last FOREVER.
They’re kind of all over the place but those are my picks at various price points.
