So I've been wondering for a while how Rancourt espresso shell compares to Alden cigar. Cigar was a major hole in my collection until recently, when I was able to obtain some from another member. The comparison shot:
Pretty darn close.
Does anyone know of anyone besides BB that is currently offering a shell cordovan briefcase? Off-the-rack preferred, but would love to hear about custom makers too. I know Mitchell Leather will make you one that has shell trim, but they say on their website they won't do all-shell.
