Hard Graft Ad-Lib Shoulder Bag

The team here at Coolector HQ have be admirers of Hard Graft for some time. Maybe it’s because we have a mild obsession with brown and melange grey, two dominant colours that feature in much of Hard Graft’s products, or perhaps we just appreciate exceptionally well crafted and robust accessories.

The latest release from the brand unsurprisingly once again hits the mark, creating something that is both stylish and practical. One of the benefits of Hard Graft as a brand is that you know exactly what you’re going to get in terms of quality and versatility. The Ad-Lib Shoulder Bag Classic is no different, and in an unpredictable world full of uncertainty it’s one of those pieces you can completely rely on.

Stylish, Functional Design

The Ad-Lib Shoulder Bag Classic is the right size and fit for almost any occasion and its versatility is what sets it apart. It measures 35 x 35 x 10cm (14″x 14″x 4″) so it’s just about big enough for a set of clothes, your wash bag and laptop, and its simplistic classic style means it won’t let you down in more formal scenarios.

As usual no compromise is made on the materials or design. The bag is made of washed Italian leather and is lined with a beautiful wool in dark grey melange, featuring two good sized inside pockets. Outside you find a convenient pocket to slide in your phone and to amplify its practicality it has two handles and an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap. 

Like all well-made, durable and cleverly designed products the Ad-Lib Shoulder bag Classic isn’t the cheapest product on the market, but it’s not like you’ll be buying a replacement anytime soon. Like all pieces from Hard Graft this is an investment, it’s an addition to your wardrobe and something that will compliment what you wear and wherever you go.

Devilishly Dapper Accessories

The great thing about products from Hard Graft is that they are consistent in the way they feel and look, which means they work really well together. It’s something that is a reflection on the brand’s two Founders, who seem to touch and experience almost every part of every product that leaves the building. 

One thing we at Coolector love about Hard Graft products is that nothing is too attention grabbing, but everything gets noticed, by the people you want to see it and this is exactly the reaction you will get to the Ad-Lib Shoulder Bag Classic.
