Denim maker Earnest Sewn has teamed up with T-Tech by Tumi to create both a sleek and functional travel bag. The bag, which launches in April 2012, is made from selvedge denim and waxed cotton, it has organized interior pockets and Tumi’s Tracer, which allows it to be tracked if lost. With everyday wear, the waxed cotton will yield unique markings, allowing the customer to customize their bag.
“By using waxed cotton, the launch of the new T-Tech by Tumi line shows a similar aesthetic to Earnest Sewn. We worked with them to draw in some Earnest detailing by using our unique Japanese selvage and signature thread detailing. The company has always been about beauty in the details and this collaboration bag embodies what Earnest Sewn is all about.” explained Benjamin Talley Smith, creative director of Earnest Sewn.
The bags will be available for purchase at select Earnest Sewn stores, this spring, for $125. Starting February 7th, T-Tech by Tumi will launch a 6 month pop up shop inside Earnest Sewn’s Meatpacking store, where the bag and other T-Tech by Tumi products will be sold.

But the kelly green is pretty cool too.” What do you think of these new colours?
Katie Holmes and her husband, Tom Cruise, were seen leaving their New York City apartment and heading out to dinner. The couple has been in town celebrating Katie’s 33rd birthday. The family, along with Katie’s parents, were seen having dinner at Buddakkan for the celebration.
Katie wore her Earnest Sewn Esra skinny jeans in Sadie wash, while Tom was wearing his RRLs. I love how simple and put together Katie looks, while I just wish that Tom would change out of those boots! You can buy Katie’s jeans on sale for $119 from Earnest Sewn.
Ashley Olsen was caught leaving Hemingway Nightclub in Hollywood, California. She wore her favorite custom-fitted jeans by Earnest Sewn in Daija. I didn’t realize that these jeans fit Ashley as well as they do. I always thought they were a bit slouchier, but they are not.
I am happy to see that Ashley is wearing more skinny jeans recently. She has been in pajama-esque style pants for quite some time. I think it is about time we see her in jeans again. I think they look great on her. You can click here to purchase Earnest Sewn jeans from their website.
