Style Spy: The Glenbrook bag

 

Brooks may be famous for their iconic saddles, but it’s their cycle bags that have us drooling...

Brooks saddles have been in vogue ever since John Boultbee Brooks decided to ditch the wooden saddle (ouch!) and craft his own leather one 150 years ago.

Their range of cycle bags are less well known, but because they're made using designs from the Brooks archive, they reflect the same style and vintage appeal. 

The Glenbrook saddle holdall (pictured) replicates the original Brooks design from the 1950s, but updates the textile material to make it more hardwearing.

Perfect for style seekers on shorter city jaunts, rather than long-distance Lycra sessions, the large main compartment will easily accommodate "tools, an oil can or a picnic lunch", according to Brooks.

For those not still living in the Fifties, the holdall is the perfect size for a jacket or your issue of Casquette, while the side pockets provide easy access to your purse or mobile phone (£125).
