The doctor is out

Qara Argentina Medico Bag

Here’s a stylish bag for men inspired by the medical bags doctors used to carry back in the days of housecalls. At $650, though, the Medico Bag from Qara appears to draw equal inspiration from more recent medical trends, like the skyrocketing costs of health care.

Nail-Head Rivets on Qara Argentina Medico Bag

The Medico Bag comes in rich brown “Vintage Vitelo” or dark “Grevy Black” (we think they mean Gray) top-grain leather. There are two zippered pockets inside, plus a slot where you can stow your passport. The handle is attached to the bag with “handmade alpaca nail-head rivets” Alpaca? Yeah, that’s what they say. There’s also a detachable leather shoulder strap.

Qara calls the Medico a getaway bag, but we imagine it’d be especially appropriate if your getaway includes a chance to play Doctor with someone special. (Thanks to Pop Wuping for the tip.)
