Maybe you heard your grandfather mutter it under his breath, but the phrase "you don't know shit from Shinola" used to be an affirmation that someone couldn't recognize greatness. Shinola, a shoe polish brand, was the utter sign of quality. The brand no longer manufacturers its well-known blend of polish, but has been reinvented in a different way—this time, with the same attention to craftsmanship and detail. One of the brand's most notable offerings are its leather goods which consist of backpacks, messenger bags, iPad sleeves, wallets, and journal covers. The products are all Made in USA and visit old-world traditions with an eye on the needs for a modern customer. If this just what you've been looking for, shop the collection here.
