BOSCA STRINGER BAG

September 4, 2017

BOSCA STRINGER BAG

Presenting the Bosca stringer bag. To be honest, I’ve never used a leather brief before but after testing the Stringer for a week, I’ve found it to be very useful. This well crafted bag has plenty of space and is very aesthetically pleasing paired with a tailored suit. Bosca products use predominately Italian vegetable tanned hand-stained leather. This means the products wear in and not out, getting better and better with use and age. I packed the bag full of items like my iPad pro, 12″ laptop, magazines and it still had room for other items.

TRUMBULL & PORTER HOTEL DETROIT

Let me start the blog by saying you must visit or stay at this hotel when in Detroit. Even though Detroit is where most of my family lives, I like to stay in hotels because it gives me a fresh perspective on how the city has grown. If you walk through the hallways Trumbull and Porter hotel, you can feel the positive youthful energy that’s happening in Detroit. The craftsmanship it took to produce such an aesthetically pleasing hotel is very evident when you notice their comfortable beds, color theme and common areas. One favorite of my things about this hotel is nearly all the work and supplies for the $9 million dollar project was sourced in Detroit.

This hotel is located in Corktown, which is in walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops. This hotel has been open since 2016 but they have made some of the final touches this year by completing a brand new outdoor stage for performers and opening the restaurant Red Dunn Kitchen. As an adding bonus Trumbull and Porter features a bike package where you can rent bikes from Detroit Bike to see the city. I plan on trying this the next time I visit.
