The Nickel Bag

$198.00

Local product testers who we bribed with Penney Clutches to test out loved the simplicity of the design, but admitted that sometimes they wanted something a bit larger and with a strap. The classic envelope-lines of this convertible crossbody bag has a hidden magnetic closure and removable, adjustable shoulder strap (strap is interchangeable with our other women’s products). Solid brass hardware and your choice of crossbody strap color (standard color combinations indicated, but feel free to pick your own or add a second strap to change up the look).

Outer body of bag is a single piece of laser cut Horween HF leather (lightweight for a ‘floppy bag’ aesthetic and durable) completely hand stitched with rolled standing seam angular front detail. Smooth hook style strap clips securely attach to bag, but when unclipped leave no bulky toggles for a smooth envelope clutch. Lifetime warranty. Adjustable strap for varying height/wear pattern.

Standard Strap Color Combinations (“Bag body color: strap color.” Feel free to be adventurous here. Life is short. Don’t stress):

  • HF Latte: Dublin Ale strap (matching color hue, different heavier weight leather), works well with all options.
  • HF Natural Chromexcel (Espresso): Natural Chromexcel strap (matching color, different heavier weight leather), works well with all options.
  • Waxed Horsefront Fog Grey: Works well with all colors, standard is an deep navy Baltic Blue strap.
  • Waxed Horsefront Coffee: Natural Chromexcel strap
  • Waxed Horsefront Royal Purple: Matching Purple Latigo strap, heavier weight leather
  • Waxed Horsefront Tumbled Ink: Predator Ink Blue (matching hue).
  • Waxed Horsefront Aquamarine: Predator Dark Tan strap. Also suggest Dublin Ale for a lighter tan or Natural Chromexcel.
  • Predator HF – Blackout w/ Black Chromexcel & natural tan reverse-side strap. Black reverse side Latigo is an option if you’d prefer an all-black look, though we like the tan reverse side of the Black Chromexcel to add a bit of color.

Dimensions: 290mm X 235mm X 35mm (approximately 11-1/2″ x 9-1/4″ x 1.5″)

    Monogram Location/Size Notes

    For monograms, we keep them on the smaller side, but visible. We size them based on the size of the product to maintain a proportional and classy look: near the closure on a watchband, on the bottom right front cover of notebooks, centered on the front of purses or clutches, etc.. If you prefer a different location, give us an idea here and we'll contact you to make sure we engrave where you'd like.

    Handwritten Message Upload*

    • (max file size 2 GB) $

    For best results, write clearly with a black pen (or fine-tip sharpie) on an unlined piece of white paper. Take a photograph of it with your phone from overhead with minimal shadows in good light. We'll contact you if we have issues with the photograph, but it's usually a pretty straightforward process. If you mess something up you can just scribble it out and write the word again; we'll make sure we have the text looking correct before we make your product.

    Message Location/Size Notes

    For engraved messages, we tend to place them more subtly on a product: The inside cover of a notebook, inside of a wallet, inside of a watchband/hidden when worn, etc., because they tend to be more 'personal' messages that usually want to be more discreet. If you prefer a different location, give us an idea here and we'll contact you to make sure we engrave where you'd like.

    Logo/Graphic/Artwork Upload*

    • (max file size 2 GB) $

    Black & white or three-color grayscale logos work best in the best resolution you have available (vector graphics--ai/eps/etc.--are even better). Feel free to contact us with questions on “engraveability” of your logo. Pricing assumes no photoshop/illustrator work necessary for logo to engrave well.

    Please don't ask us to engrave anything you don't have the rights to (team logos, etc.)

    Graphic location/size notes

    For corporate logos or graphics, we tend to engrave them more prominently on a product: Front of a notebook, outer cover of a wallet, etc. We'll contact you to finalize location after your order, but If you'd like to give us an idea where you'd like it that's great.

  • Anything you'd like to tell the maker as they're making your product?

    Maybe we asked you to include a special note in your order...or maybe you just wanna say you really like turtles. You do you.

    We can't guarantee that we can accommodate special requests, but we do our best.

    • $
  • Typically, we include a short 'thank you' note to the purchaser on the inside of the shipping box, because, well...thanks!

    But if you're getting this for someone else, it might be weird for them to see a note to you, so we'll gladly write a message to them from you instead. But maybe it'd be weird if it's not in your handwriting? Nah, probably not, should be cool. Worth the risk, isn't it?

    Anyway, you type it here and we'll write it for you--just don't be racist/homophobic/etc.; that won't make it on the box.

My new favorite

I’ve only had it for a couple of days, but I’ve already gotten lots of compliments. It’s big enough to hold all the essentials and light enough to bring with me everywhere. If you’re worried that the penny clutch is too small, this one is perfect.

Custom Dime Bag - Life. Saver.

I don't know if it's the smell, the colors, or the functionality I love the most. It's perfect to throw in my bigger bag on work days and more perfect to throw the strap on for lighter adventures. FFF worked with me from across the country to make the most beautiful bag and I've never gotten more compliments. Thank you!
