The Style Guide –Doctor's Bag's
A doctor's bag is defined by a hinged frame which opens rigidly allowing the top of the bag to stay open. Most importantly, this style of bag should be durable yet functional. Over the years the need for doctors to carry medicines has diminished, and a more flexible approach to accessories has been adopted. Any one of our leather medical bags will make a perfect gift for a medical or veterinarian student, or a stunning career investment for yourself.
What should I consider before purchasing?
When purchasing a leather doctor's bag, thought should go into the contents that will be carried everyday, allowing the purchaser to choose the right style and size of bag for the job. Here at Maxwell Scott Bags we produce several styles of leather doctors bags, as well as may different styles of satchels and leather briefcases. The first thing to consider is the contents of your bag. Do you need to carry medication, equipment, tools or papers, or maybe a combination of items? The Donnini Small leather medical bag is a structured bag with a lockable catch large enough to carry daily essentials whilst keeping them safe. The Donnini Large leather doctors bag however is more substantial and comprises of two compartments, as well as a lockable fastening for security. The base of this bag is ideal for storing a stethoscope or medications, keeping the two separate from the main compartment which is suitable for carrying diaries, medical books and everyday essentials. Should you require alternative leather bags suitable for the medical profession, but not styled as traditionally as a classic doctors bag, then Maxwell Scott provides many smart yet stylish leather business briefcases, satchels and laptop bags.
A final consideration.
Once your choice of leather bag has been made, all that remains is to choose which colour Italian leather you prefer. Maxwell Scott offers three luxurious colours in our signature vegetable tanned leather. Night black is the obvious choice if you require a sleek professional accessory and mainly wear suits. Dark Chocolate is the perfect compromise between smart and casual as it offers a colour smart enough to wear with a suit, but looks equally as good with casual clothes. Finally our chestnut tan leather is ideal for accompanying country casual clothes or jeans and will offer a lovely patina over time.
Whichever style or colour you choose you will be guaranteed a quality, handcrafted accessory to accompany you in your everyday work.
