H.L. James Sets New Heights for Gentleman on the Luxury Scale

By Zahra Al-Kateb

HL JamesH.L. James’ cutting-edge collection of technology cases, wallets, travel accessories, and signature backpacks redefine the word ‘luxury’. Characterized by the rich textures of alligator skin, these exquisite products capitalize on exceptional quality, iconic design and functionality.

H.L. James backpacks are the highlight of the collection; the large, sturdy packs contour the body with ease, offering protection for your belongings while keeping your hands free. Available in five colors with three different hardware options, each style radiates opulence and masculinity. For the man with a signature look, H.L. James can customize every aspect of the backpack. Combine multiple skin colors and select from three different hardware finishes to create a backpack that matches your luxury car or favorite sports team in a style that best suits you.

Each backpack is configured to provide maximum space with efficient organization, featuring a large removable alligator skin valuables pouch, spacious cushioned pockets, a signature double lock closure, and sturdy hardware. The versatile design can go from stadium to business meeting with ease and distinction. H.L. James also offers a variety of travel accessories made from lustrous alligator skin including luxurious toiletry bags, bi-fold wallets, and passport holders.

The incredible depth and unique character seen in the alligator skin is carefully achieved using labor-intensive, old-world techniques paired with state-of-the-art equipment. Each piece is bench made by a skilled craftsman in Italy who cuts, matches, and stitches the leather by hand. H.L. James believes that the inside of its pieces should be as detailed and extravagant as the outside. The finest Italian calfskin leather lines the interior of all of the products, customized to match the bags exterior color, and hand stitched using the strongest silk thread.

The exquisite lock mechanism, uniquely designed as an iconic brand element, creates an unmistakable identity for H.L. James in a global market. All hardware used by H.L. James is handmade and fitted in a small workshop in Tuscany, and then hand galvanized and polished to achieve a brilliant finish. H.L. James’ unprecedented appreciation for craftsmanship and exquisite detail is unparalleled, complemented by an intense focus on product functionality. H.L. James is available for purchase at B. Young & Co. in Bentley Gold Coast in Chicago and online at, with plans to expand to luxury retailers across the country.
