While we attempt to keep many items in stock, Frank Clegg cannot guarantee the immediate availability of all our items due to high demand.

Our products combine the finest leathers
with unparalleled construction & finishing

    We take pride in what we do, and what we do is not always easy. We have strict guidelines that ensure our products are of the highest quality and that no short cuts are taken. It all starts with the leather making sure there are no open cuts or weak spots. After the leather is cut all pieces are inspected and all the edges get sanded and hand painted. When the bag starts to come together we ensure the stitching is straight with no skips. When the bag is complete we do an over view of each product to certify the Frank Clegg signature of approval.

  • Harness Belting Leather

    This exceptional leather has a firm, lightly glossy finish that softens with age and use. It turn will develop a unique and cherished patina. Extra fat liqueurs are added during the conditioning process, creating a smooth surface and beautiful appearance that improves with age. These fine leathers do not have any surface finish to protect them, and with care will age over time to become a true heirloom.

A remarkable bag

Today I received the zip-top briefcase in a chestnut single gusset. After searching far and wide across every company I could uncover, I realized no other bag matched this one in quality or craftsmanship, and I began saving for my first Frank Clegg purchase. We ordered this bag as a late "birthday" present and when it arrived today, it was even better than I had hoped. Truly a gorgeous piece of art, I cannot wait to put it to daily work. My highest recommendation for this most excellent product!
