Canada: Monte & Coe

Greg Reynoso Journalist

Soon, I’ll be flying East for a wedding and have been in search for travel gear that offers both practicality, and simplicity. The latest lineup from Monte & Coe offers just that. Featured, is their Ox Blood lineup of travel accessories -my favorite color offering from their 2017 collection. Hand-selected leather from Italy, each travel accessory below is hand-crafted from the finest leather and Italian brass hardware. In addition to the craftsmanship of their products, I am drawn in by their simplistic take on a weekend necessity. Check out my favorite picks from their 2017 lineup below.

Make sure to check out Monte & Coe below, and don’t forget to connect with us on our Instagram and Twitter all to tell us what your favorites are.

monte & coe is a Canadian lifestyle brand that creates bags and accessories using premium wool and leather sourced from Italy. Like any great invention, monte & coe was born out of a burning frustration with the lack of quality and longevity in bags and accessories. We wanted something permanent not temporary. We wanted something affordable, not cheap. We wanted quality, simplicity and utility. And most of all, we wanted it to be Canadian.

Instead of waiting for what we wanted, we made it. In 2012, Matt Montemurro, Andrew Coelho, Ron Scarafile, and Nicholas Wiktorczyk collaborated to create monte & coe. It started with a duffel bag suitable for the gym, for the cottage and certainly for the weekend vacation. Every product is handcrafted in Canada to the highest standards and production practices.

Our partnership reflects our individuality, solidified around a shared appreciation of fashion, personal style and our native Canada. Join us and embrace a new perspective on traditional apparel.

Our goal is simple: #carryuswithyou.
