I got my first Very Troubled Child bag last year, shortly after I saw the Darjeeling Limited for the first time. It was their original Safari Bag (no. 4) with my initials hand painted onto the leather.
I’ve been completely in love with this brand ever since, and continue to be blown away by their attention to detail and the quality of their products. Every piece I own is timeless, sturdy, and so unique.
They’re fantastic conversation starters, too. Which, if you’re shy like I am, can be a bit overwhelming. But you meet a lot of people with equally good taste.
It is also worth noting that I’ve reached out to them several times with questions about or changes to my purchases: their team is quick to reply and extremely helpful.
I can’t wait to see what Very Troubled Child comes up with in the future.
This new assistant I hired is working out just fine. 10/10.
