How to Choose a Leather Briefcase – How to get it right
Buying a luxury leather briefcase for a man can be an incredibly tricky business. There is no doubt they’re a necessity, with the huge amount of tech being carted around for work purposes on a daily basis: alongside the more casual workplace, the melange between function and fashion are driving the men’s bag furore.
But with several bag types on offer and infinite styles to choose from, which bag is the right one for him? We’ve laid out our entire collection to make the choice easy for you…
For the man with a lot of essentials
Big laptop, books, power leads, files, papers, the kitchen sink? We’ve got just the bag for this man! It’s got three roomy compartments for all his bits and pieces, including a padded central pouch to fit a 17” laptop. And even when he’s packed so much in that he can’t close the zip, the two-handled design means he can just grab and go. And the detachable shoulder strap means hefting that weight is no problem at all. The Grafton comes in three finishes and is £660.
For the man who travels light
We affectionately say that the Marston is the small brother of the Grafton: one of our most popular bags, this single compartment ziptop style is perfect for anyone looking for a lightweight leather briefcase. And as an extra bonus, we can make this bag in traditional English bridle leather on a bespoke basis. Standard price, £455.
For the traditional man
If the man you’re shopping for is slightly more formal, the Buckingham might just be for them. Featuring three main compartments with four additional slip pockets for those essential bits and bobs, the fully functional traditional buckles hide quick release ‘tucktight‘ closures, all in a classy antiquated brass. £560.
For the man with many papers
The Wymington is a standard-sized briefcase in a formal satchel style with stiffened walls and bound seams, making it ideal for the man who needs to carry around precious papers. Its classic look and hardwearing craftsmanship will ensure this will be a bag enjoyed for decades. £485.
For the modern man
If your guy is after a more modern style, the Langford is for them. A zip-top style with padded walls and floor to protect precious tech (13” plus) alongside an adjustable and removable shoulder strap, this is the perfect city brief for busy executives, and a future classic. £440.
Lastly – For the bike commuter
Some briefcases just won’t cut it if the man you’re shopping for has a two-wheeled commute. The Clifton rucksack solves this conundrum: it utilises the ultimate luxury of vegetable-tanned leathers and contemporary styling to update the most functional concept of all. It’s built to last and gets even better looking from the very first day of use, and the longer it serves! £545.
