Good evening. The Daily Monster Messenger Bag is finally on sale! I got it printed a few weeks ago, but the way the flap draped when the bag was empty just didn't look good when I tested the bag on my recent trip to New York. It looked floppy and limp. Which is never good! So I had the bags altered by my trusty tailor here in L.A. He hemmed each flap with a sturdy thread. Now the bags look good and work great and they're ready for you at store344. Please take a look:
The bag is made from 12oz natural cotton canvas. It's got a cell phone pouch, which---along with the mesh pouch for a bottle of water---is the kind of feature I used to scoff at until I road-tested the bag, walking through sweltering downtown Manhattan for hours on end. These things do come in handy.
The bag measures 12.5 x 15.5 x 3.5 in. and comes in taupe. It's got a Velcro closure--two big patches on the inside of the flap. It's a bit noisy, but quick and effective. The material is soft, but sturdy. If you're carrying heavy hardcover books with sharp corners for a week straight (as I did) the bag will fray a bit, but if you need a nifty everyday bag for the office or school, this one will not let you down.
Hey, did I mention that this thing features a brand new monster? I made it exclusively for this one-time edition of 25 bags, silk-screened in black and white. (If I make a second edition of the bag, it'll have a different monster.) Finally, I will sign and number each bag on the inside back panel. The price is $34.44 including shipping (if you're in the U.S.) and, as always, 5% of all store344 sales benefit 826LA.
So there you have it! A brand new item that lets you
make a monstrous fashion statement! Get'em while they're hot!
In the meantime, please remember that 344 LOVES YOU
