When Samuel Bail and Abel Samet couldn’t find what they wanted in a weekend bag, they decided to make their own. The former financiers founded Troubadour (troubadourgoods.com) in London 5 years ago to offer pieces both functional and stylish, like this new khaki canvas-and-leather weekender ($850). “We wanted to make bags that men could take to the office and the gym or on casual weekend getaways,” says Samet. Their minimalist bags are made with vegetable-dyed Italian leather in small Tuscan workshops.
