I grabbed this froma Yahoo news story. Been looking for a while to find a picture of the old BR stores. Please share any photos you may have!
There’s lots of interesting bits in the catalog that show BR growing and changing along the way. Hiring notices, store location lists, statements of philosophy, etc. Rendered as always in their unmistakable style.
Banana Republic was of course a travel company, and as such they sold some really great bags. Rugged, elegant, roomy and efficient, they were detailed with lots of leather and had a seemingly endless supply of pockets. Having been so well built they have survived the decades and appear online all the time.
Below are all the pages currently scanned into the archive that relate to Bags and Accessories.
