Status Anxiety Neck of the Woods Bag

What brings you to our neck of the woods? Status Anxiety, of course.

“For me,  color palate is really important, and I’m picky about it,” says collection curator Jeff Buoncristiano.

“I absolutely love that camel, smoked tobacco type of color. Paying a lot of attention to color theory over the last year or so, that color works so well with anything.”


This high quality thick cotton canvas bag features full leather trim and a waxed canvas base, with heavy duty hardware, and a padded back and shoulder straps. This bag has all the room you could ask for, with multiple compartments and a 13″ laptop sleeve.

But beyond the functionality, Buoncristiano is a fan of the versatility of its looks.

“It’s very minimalist and clean, but also really rugged and versatile,” says Buoncristiano.

“Let’s say you took a photo of it – you could put it on a rock on a mountain, or on a city street, and it’s going to look at home either way.”


He also appreciates the elevated style it brings to a backpack, blurring the line between traditional backpack and carry-all bag.

“I like that it’s more of a bag than a backpack. It’s a backpack with class,” says Buoncristiano.

“I can wear something like this to work and keep a professional look about me.”

If you’re looking for a bag that can be slung over your back, carried by your side, and will look as at home on a mountain cliff as it will next to your office desk, it’s time to score yourself a Neck of the Woods bag.
