Following the success of last week’s Buyer’s Pick debut feature from Lee Douros at we intend to waste no time bringing you the second instalment of his very stylish advice, this time in the form of his second pick from’s AW10 menswear collection.

Last week Lee talked us through a great reflective jacket from Stone Island that was guaranteed to be a talking point for fans of all thing tech-focused. With its heat sensitive qualities and glass microsphere technology the jacket is an amazing changing-colour dream coat, as well as being functional and waterproof…

This week Lee has chosen a great menswear accessory: this canvas messenger bag from heritage brand Belstaff is one of those pieces that’s bound to become a weekend staple – on-trend and perfect for when you’re out and about around town.

Here’s what Lee has to say:

‘The Mountain Messenger from iconic heritage brand Belstaff is a great addition to any weekend/off duty outfit.

Made from rugged cotton canvas and washed leather detailing, it ties in with the Outdoors trend that was evident in many Casualwear brands this season, who featured checked flannel shirts with elbow patch details, dirt and rusty coloured corduroy trousers and heavy weight Donegal knits amongst their key looks.

A bag that looks like you’ve had it for years (which due to the great craftsmanship, you will!), this a functional and practical piece from Great Outdoors powerhouse designers, Belstaff, that looks just as good when you’re darting through the city.’

We couldn’t agree more. Expect to spot them very soon on stylish-yet-rugged men riding bicycles, as they go about their enviably cool weekend plans…
