A Closer Look: Linjer Leather Goods
As many of you know, this blog rarely focuses on the most expensive or least expensive items out there. There are other sites that write about the polar ends of the menswear spectrum; instead, I try to find products that provide the best value, and that is rarely present on the extreme ends of what is available. So when my friends Roman and Jenn wanted to meet up and discuss their new leather goods company that provided items at very aggressive prices, I was excited to hear more.
Roman and Jenn have recently founded Linjer (pronounced “lin-yer,” Norwegian for “lines”), a company that strives to make high-quality leather goods without the luxury markup. I’ve grown a bit tired of the catchphrase “it’s like Warby Parker for [X],” but in this case, it applies well; Linjer has done a great job of finding a market saturated with expensive items and offers an extremely competitive alternative. Finding leather goods that are both well-made and reasonably priced is tough, so their concept seems like a good one.
