Check out SFGATE’s “Monogrammed Gifts Spell Thoughtfulness”  (we totally agree!)
Cleary we think monogramming is the way to go. With personal designs you can give gifts that
have meaning. Know of monogram spots we missed? Let us know your favorite shops, websites,
and designs. Here at SCOUT we love knowing what you think! And of course, don’t forget to order
a SCOUT bag with your initials if you don’t already have one.

SCOUT monogram

This week, we want to show off SCOUT’s personality through monograms.

Here at SCOUT, we love the idea of making our bags your own so we decided

to give a quick run through of where monograms originated from and how

members of the SCOUT team use their monogramed bags today.


Check out the classic Original Deano for yourself and add your own initials to make your bag distinctly yours
