The name of this Gramercy bag is a special homage we would like to pay to our good friend, Holden Caulfield. He may not know we are friends, but all who have read his ramblings sort of feel as though there is a connection between the two. Kind of like when you spend three days with someone you don’t know and end up best friends by the end of it. That’s how we all feel with Mr. Caulfield. Caulfield had a bit of both worlds. Though he lived on 5th Avenue, he despised the whole phony, uptown culture, which is just about the most downtown thing one can do. Oh, quick note, if you don’t know who I am talking about, then two things.
One, you went to a high school that should probably be closed down. Two, because of this, you need to stop reading this write-up, stop whatever else you’re doing, and devote the next 5 hours to reading J.D. Salinger’s “Catcher in the Rye.” Then come back, finish reading this description, and purchase our beautiful bag. Anyway, Holden was a troubled kid, but that’s okay. He was just a nice guy trying to save the world from the phonies of adult society. If he were around today, he’d definitely be living downtown, probably on Macdougal between Bleecker and 3rd street. He’d probably have a beard though because he’d no longer be at clean cut Pencey Prep. But he’d look good alright, Caulfield Bag thrown over his shoulder, Chucks on his feet, and that old red hunting cap worn proudly atop his head. But don’t worry, our Caulfield Bags come with peace of mind that everything will be alright. So far, no one who wears the bag has ended up in an institution in California. So as of now, we can guarantee that won’t happen.
The Caulfield bag is expertly crafted to exude a rugged, downtown look perfect for talking politely to prostitutes or catching children before they fall off a cliff (again, gotta read the book). The next time you find yourself dressed cooler than anyone else on the street, walking Central Park South with a coffee in hand, and asking strangers where all the ducks have gone, you’ll be showing off your rugged elegance wearing the Caulfield Bag.
