Virgil James is a Los Angeles-based luxury brand, established in 2017 by Jay McGoodwin — an entrepreneur, investor, educator, traveler, and designer whose obsession to build the perfect bag became much more.
Virgil James makes limited-edition bags and accessories known for exceptional quality, timeless style, and everyday functionality. Each of our products is a creative work of art, handcrafted to provide a lifetime of use.
Virgil James currently makes six luxury bag collections comprising a total of eight bag styles — five for women (clutch, cross body, No. 8, bucket, tote) and three for men (briefcase, backpack, weekender).
The three limited-edition CityLine Collections — Reykjavik, Santa Fe, and Buenos Aires — feature a timeless, minimal look with uncompromising attention to detail and handcrafted artisanal hardware.
The three exclusive Panel Collections — Nero, Naturale, and Pruna — feature one-of-a-kind original art or the creative use of classic materials, including felt, leather, faux exotics, and woven fabrics.
Virgil James is not your everyday “luxury” brand. We use luxury bags of exceptional quality and everyday utility as the setting for creative expressions of original, one-of-a-kind art, and limited-edition style.
