This American-Made Duffel Bag Is as Yellow as a Rubber Duck

Online shop Inland Clothing is a one-man operation dedicated to selling affordable, classic menswear.

Thirty-year-old Eli Naeher founded Inland Clothing in Chicago last year with the idea of selling high-quality, classically-styled men’s basics at a fair price—and all crafted in the U.S. The one-man operation has an online presence only, and ships all orders out of its Chicago warehouse, but Inland has shown up at pop-up markets like NorthernGRADE and this past Sunday’s Dose.

Naeher seeks out the best small-batch manufacturers across the country (New Jersey-based Individualized Shirts provides Inland’s men’s dress shirts, the only item they have made in-factory for 50 years) but keeps it local too (Chicago-made clothing from Domestic Workwear.)

“Well-made clothing shouldn’t be a luxury,” says Naeher. “It should be accessible to everyone.”

Closet fixtures like bridle leather belts and twill work pants are easy on the eyes, but it’s the no-frills pocket knife and rubber-duck-yellow duffel (pictured) that will stop you in your mouse clicks. The humble bag’s durability will not let you down, and Inland’s collection is sure to follow suit.
