As a young professional, I knew that paying my dues and working hard weren’t the only things that were going to make me stand out in a sea of thousands of other young professionals who were fighting for attention. I needed to look the part. When it comes to man-ccessorising in the work place, every guy needs a sharp, professional looking “man bag.” As the new face of briefcases, man bags are not only a badge of sophistication, but also extremely practical and necessary to tote around all that stuff!
Recently, I was introduced to a local company that specializes in hand crafted leather goods. Brothers Leather Supply Co. offers a variety of high-end man bags, wallets, and other accessories designed right here in Grand Rapids.
Wait….local, leather, man bag? I’m in.
I recently received my first Bros. bag, and I must say I am impressed. I went with the “American.” It is a well-designed bag with plenty of compartments for my computer, books, phone, notepads, etc. and I get compliments on it wherever I go.
Founded by Adam Kail in early 2014, Brothers Leather Supply Co. was created to bring local and affordable leather goods to Grand Rapids. Kail noticed that most leather products weren’t within the price range of young professionals, and he saw an opportunity to pursue his passion by providing high-quality, unique, leather products that were affordable.
However, leather isn’t the only thing Brothers Leather Supply Co. is passionate about. They also love helping others.
Here are just a few of the good causes they support:
Adoption- Using their business as a means to help raise funds for a young Grand Rapids couple in the process of adopting their first child.
Mari J Meyer Run- A local trail run that raises support and awareness for people battling pancreatic cancer.
Asian Hope- An organization that helps orphans in Cambodia to receive a quality education and the opportunity to attend college in the USA.
