The Amsterdam by Venque
Founded in 2011 by two Toronto, Canada-based brothers, Viktor and Simon, Venque is a line of bags that can best be described as sturdy and resourceful. The Amsterdam ($105, in grey or black) serves many functions. Inside, small pockets for odds and ends, a protected (and removable) sleeve for a laptop, and a dedicated pen and pencil holder. On the outside, several pockets that can hold items that need to be easily accessed. It can hold a laptop and a change of clothes for overnight travel, or remove the laptop sleeve for extra room. The bag, with its unique slanted leather top, has proven to be a conversation starter on the streets.
