Archival Preview: Flap Musette
It's coming soon. We've already sold out of our first sample run of our Flap Musettes, so we'll be having a new, bigger run sewn and ready to ship in about two weeks. Expect a web store interface and more colorways, to boot! Interested parties may email email@example.com for more information or to be added to our mailing list.
The Flap Musette is designed to combine the simplicity of the cycling musette with the durability and use value of a field bag. Slightly bigger than our standard Musette, it has a snapped flap closure, adjustable strap, double-layer bottom, and two inside pockets. The strap adjusts from 42 to 52 inches, accommodating most users. Our first fifty special-edition musettes have a hand-punched serial number on the leather tab. The Flap Musette is available in 10-ounce waxed cotton canvas and also in 22-ounce waxed cotton twill for more demanding conditions. Dimensions: 13" x 10" x 2".
Archival Clothing bags are made of stout, closely woven waxed cotton and military-grade cotton webbing. All edges are bound in waxed cotton tape and all stress points are bar-tacked. Solid brass hardware is used throughout. Handsewn in Oregon, these bags are practical and free of complications.
Note that we will also have a new production run of our basic musette available in ranger tan, yellow and navy blue.
Here's a recap of our overarching musette project.
$110 for 10 oz waxed cotton musette in navy, dark olive or 22 oz ranger tan twill
$50 for plain musette (navy, field tan and yellow)
Available in the future from the Archival Clothing web shop and select stockists
