the briefcase is on its way, thanks
The briefcase is finished.  Here are some photos we took in the shop.   The racing green suede and London tan are an incredible combination.  They compliment each other well.   here is the listing on my site   The Alfred Wallace 2216 - Racing Green Suede w/ a Trolly Strap                           I like the way this key holder looks with the tan thread on...
Here are all the main parts finished, locks installed, handle, pockets, etc.   next time i update the bag will be together.  
i just wanted to update you that ill have some pics if not tonight by tomorrow.  I just worked on all the small detail things installing the lock and getting everything aligned.
Trimmed and burnished the edges and finished them off with the first stage of multiple layers of a specialized coat, a very precious and delicate job          
me too, im really liking the green and tan mix. ill get up some more photos later this afternoon
Here is an update. We finished all the precisely measured cuts for the briefcase to come together.

I should be getting to this bag some time late on Friday and will post some photos through the weekend.   i look forward to this briefcase.  We have been working with getting the shade of green suede lining just right to go with the London Tan.  I love the 2 colors and the way they compliment each other, sort of like the dark subtle nature of my Brown and the red.    In normal light the red is dark and blends well with the brown.         With direct light...
here are the rest of the photos of the finished briefcase.           I made a custom black bridle snap on strap to hold the leather loops when not in use.  I also made the backside yellow to give it a slight pop with the brass.                                               enjoy this briefcase, it was one of my favorites to make.  One of the most asked about in the store.
