Twin brothers Byron and Dexter Peart founded WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie to design attractive travel bags, everyday bags and accessories for fashionably modern gentlemen. Inspired by the timelessness and functionality of classic luggage, this Montreal-based company uses traditional styles to address modern-day considerations. For examples: a leather iPhone case that looks like a resurfaced, mid-century gem; the limited Edition leather DeGaulle bag, a timeless beauty in white; the sleek and super-functional cotton Kastrup backpack; and the canvas O’Hare shopper tote bag, adorned with WANT’s ubiquitous gold-and-silver zipper (its meaning: unity through contrast). As if handsomeness and utility weren’t enough, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie reflects the Peart brothers’ concern for social responsibility: the brand sources its organic cotton from Turkey and its sustainable leather from Norway, and assembles its products in Italy. Les essentials, indeed.
This is luggage for the design-obsessed gent with a taste for the finer things. WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie makes travel bags and computer cases that expertly blend modern functionality with a heaping portion of classic good looks. Made from soft, sustainable leather, these bags are crafted to last a lifetime—which is handy, since you’ll never want to give them up.
For the quintessential office man, a run-of-the-mill sentimental token may not make much of an impression. Why not show him you care with a gift that suits his lifestyle? We've got you covered with an array of must-haves that would do any modern-day Don Draper proud.
Rakish dishevelment has its charms, but sometimes you want to look razor-sharp. And any guy in pursuit of smart style that doesn’t skimp on personality will be well served by this sale. The picks on offer are unimpeachably tidy, but shot through with enough character to keep you standing head and shoulders above the crowd.
