If you’ve been paying attention over the last month or two, you’ve noticed a lot of talk about leather goods newcomer Linjer, and for good reason. This direct-to-consumer company makes bags that sell out lightening fast and command impressively long waitlists. It’s easy to see why: They’re absolute luxury items at accessible price points. (Not to mention Linjer’s many celebrity fans, including Amy Adams, Isla Fisher, Amber Heard, Selma Blair, and Rashida Jones.)

Take the Tulip Bag. Over 5,000 people signed up for the chance to buy one of these celeb-loved pieces when the brand re-stocked two weeks ago. The signature black-red edition sold out within 30 minutes of going live on Linjer's site, and the other colorways (tan-yellow and tan-red) quickly followed suit.

Before that, there was the Doctor’s Bag, which launched with a 3,000-person-long waitlist last month.

At 9am EST this morning, Linjer launched the much-awaited Sling Bag, its most affordable and most in-demand bag yet — as of last night, the waitlist had reached over 12,000 people. At only $245, this elegant crossbody is a steal compared to styles like the Tulip Bag, at $525, and the Soft Tote, available for $359.

The Sling Bag, available in Chestnut and Black, is the perfect addition to Linjer’s minimalist collection, with a teardrop shape, milled Italian leather exterior, and cotton twill lining. While the bag's 8.5" x 8.25" x 2.4" frame is petite, it can easily carry all of your essentials, including your Kindle, iPhone, wallet, and other loose ends.

As with past releases, Linjer expects this item to sell quickly, especially given how large the waitlist is. In an effort to keep the bag in stock for longer, the brand has password protected the product page. But Linjer's granted InStyle access, which we’ll pass along to you — just use the code “thesling” to access and shop the bag.

Based on past successes, it’s safe to say the brand has cracked the code to irresistible bags. Move fast on this item if you don’t want to risk missing out on this limited run.
