That's correct, Tidybeard. But after the first go round, the left one (the slider) refused to slide. Tried the key, tried cursing and threatening, begged and so forth.

Just got my Aspinal of London bag yesterday. It's gorgeous, but I opened it once, took out the strap and closed it again.

Most of the Papworth computer cases I saw were averaging around US 1,400. Similar SABs were nearly twice that. And both favored the bit more 'equestrian' ye olde tack & saddle look "” lovely, to be sure, just not my taste. And the Tumis, Vuittons, Hermes, Pradas, etc., all...
