Citizen Berlin Messenger Bag [$160.00] is Chrome Industries’ third issue of the City Series. It pulls inspiration from their favorite German city, Berlin. They’ve taken a mash up of Lederhosen, Bavarian Needlepoint, and beer to develop the Berlin Citizen. Yes, the guys at Chrome Industies know that Berlin is not in Bavaria. And, they just really like Lederhosen. The Berlin Citizen’s exterior shell is a water-resistant “felted” polyester that feels like a wool German Army blanket. The embossed D-panel is reminiscent of traditional German work wear. The floating bucket liner is made with 1000 denier truck tarpaulin, complete with a Bavarian inspired needlepoint design by British illustrator and pattern master Matt Manson. Finished off with an antique brass finished seatbelt buckle. That’s right a freaking seatbelt buckle.
