Each J.W. Hulme Co. Graystone Canvas Dopp Style Travel Kit is a masterpiece of canvas and leather. Already tough and durable, the Graystone canvas used in its construction is waxed to lend it additional protection. Over time, the wax rises to the surface, creating a pattern of shades and streaks unique to each piece. In contrast, the leather of the travel kit bag is distressed to enhance its appearance without compromising its strength. Combined, these elements lend this product an antique appearance over the fruits of modern engineering.
In 2003, J.W. Hulme Co. reduced its production numbers in an astounding demonstration of its commitment to ensuring that each one of its bags lived up to its high standards. It refused to either use automation or outsource to overseas labor, instead entrusting its production to American craftsmanship. As a result, all of the products from J.W. Hulme Co. are handmade, undergo personal inspections, and are attached to guarantees that last a lifetime.

Designed for experienced travelers, the Limited Edition J.W. Hulme Co. Overnight Briefcase in Portage is a superb example of travel bags for men. Each leather briefcase is handmade using brass, comfortable lining, unbreakable thread, and top grain leathers. Possessing multiple compartments that can be secured using attached zippers, this product has no shortage of the storage space needed to hold business documents and a change of clothes for professional men heading out on overnight trips.
Although its founder started out manufacturing tents for American soldiers and did not start producing sporting bags until much later, J.W. Hulme Co. has since switched over to producing bags on a full-time basis. For much of its existence, the Minnesotan manufacturer focused on pursuing the same cost advantages as its competitors, but reconsidered in 2003. Skilled artisans living in the United States are responsible for making all of its modern bags by hand using nothing but materials purchased from domestic producers.

Sometimes, facial hair can grow into the skin, causing it to become infected and inflamed. In many cases, the hairs curl to continue growing into the skin, while in other cases, they grow into the side of the hair follicles instead of emerging from the pores. Shaving is considered the leading cause of ingrown hairs because it results in shortened hairs with tips that are sharper than normal. As a result, it is easier for these shortened hairs to become trapped in the follicles by a build-up of dead skin and similar material and become ingrown hair. At the same time, it is also easier for the shortened hairs to penetrate the skin and cause hair follicle inflammation. » Read the rest of this entry «
