Recycled Suit Tote Bags
Fashionable bags made from reclaimed men's suit coats.
We'll admit that it's fun to buy an old suit jacket from Goodwill for a tacky 80s party. It turns out, however, that there is a better way to recycle vintage suits: turn them into tote bags!
Each Suit Tote Bag is made almost entirely from a single reclaimed vintage suit coat. The sleeves, pockets, lining and even the buttons are transformed into a new, useful accessory. The bag features a magnetic clasp and is available in dark blue and dark gray. Exact fabric will vary slightly from pictured. Hand made in the USA.

Tote bags made from reclaimed vintage suit coats
You may be thinking, "Oh no, they're cutting up cheesy leisure suits and pawning them off as 'designer bags'." That, of course, would be wrong. These vintage bags feature simple, classic fabrics and patterns completely devoid of wide striping, quarter-inch-thick polyester, chenille, velour, or crushed velvet.
Each Recycled Suit Tote Bag is hand made in America from a single suit jacket. The pockets, sleeves, buttons, and lining are all used to fashion a durable and unique accessory.
Suit sleeves, pockets, buttons re-engineered into a tote bag
Check out the photo below to see which areas of the suit jacket are used to create your Recycled Suit Tote Bag. Yes, it's a little like one of those diagrams that show you where each cut of beef comes from a cow.
As you can see, both front pockets become pockets on the outside of your tote. The right sleeve becomes another pocket on the outside of the bag. The left sleeve will be reinforced to create shoulder straps.
Finally, the interior of the jacket will be used to create the lining of the bag. Because the inside of most suit jackets feature a pocket, your tote bag will also have an interior pocket most likely adorned with the label of the suit designer.
Convenient magnetic clasp closure
OK, so everything on the Recycled Suit Tote Bag isn't made from an old suit jacket. The magnetic closure is an "after market" add-on, but clearly worth it.
Suit lining used to create interior pocket
The lining of the suit jacket is used to create the interior of your Recycled Suit Tote Bag. The pocket is kept intact which means you're in for a little surprise as the suit designer's label is usually found here.
Choose from two styles
The Recycled Suit Tote is currently available in two styles: dark gray and dark blue. Obviously, because each suit jacket is different, so is every Suit Tote Bag. However, the size, shape, and color will match as closely as possible to what you see in our pictures.
