 I have a zip top briefcase from Lotuff Leather ( that I am very happy with . Also check Frank Clegg Leatherworks (Lotuff uses some of his designs, though he works on his own now). Browse this thread for other makers. Previously, I had messenger bags both from Fossil and Coach. The Fossil bag I cannot recommend. The leather which holded the strap tore apart after about 2 years, and overall the leather was...
 Thank you. I will think about the waist, I might just leave it as it is and have it tailored later if it bothers me. I agree that the overall length is about the minimum I could wear, but I thought that for a casual unstructured coat, it is good to be a little shorter.  The pants are Incotex, and the shoes are Barker Cardiff from their "handcrafted" collection.

If they are made in Italy, I don't know the maker.   Also check this: Budget of $600-$1000 gives you access to most RTW brands - Edward Green, G&G, Crockett&Jones handgrade, Vass,...
I don't have any Simpson last Carminas (only Forest & Rain), but I found the Bexley shoe trees to work well. Take the same size as your shoes.
^ Oops, sorry about that, I should really catch up on the Styleforum nomenclature :) Corrected.
