"Troubadour offers a thoughtfully designed range of vegetable-tanned and Italian-made leather goods."
The Globe and Mail
"When former bankers Samuel Bail and Abel Samet couldn’t find the kind of duffle bag they sought, they decided to make their own. The result: Troubadour Goods."
The Gentleman's Journal
"Troubadour are rapidly becoming the leading mens designer when it comes to bags and travel accessories...What we particularly admire about the Brand is the way everything is seemingly minimalistic. In an era where patterned/printed bags and accessories are becoming more common than simple designs – Troubadour have outdone themselves in creating products that are refreshingly back-to-basics."
"No logo luxury, sharp styling, immaculate construction and all in the perfect colour: black. We think Troubadour might make the world’s ultimate hand luggage"
"The accessories are extremely conservative and office-friendly, but they are far from boring. Albeit a plain, sans logo surface, the material is handcrafted Italian leather that’s been vegetable-tanned for an extremely soft and glossy look."
Wall Street Journal
"Troubadour's small range of products—weekenders to wallets—is masculine but refined. The simple designs don't distract from the luxurious vegetable-tanned leathers, which took a year of tannery-investigating to find. The skins are left unfinished, allowing for graceful ageing."
"Both are passionate about leather and admit that their quest for the perfect mens bag has bordered on the obsessional."
"Troubadour struck us as a very different proposition – their product had no superfluous detail or flourishes. It was designed with functionality to the fore, to last a lifetime."
