Kopped - thank you. If it is genuinely silk that's too good a deal to pass up.
I sold that Dunhill Tradition bag you linked to - I could have sold it 30 times over. Retail is about £3k though so certainly not a budget option.The SABs you linked to are great, though I prefer the traditional holdall to the other one.

I'm not starting a fight, but my oldest SAB is at least 40 years old and still going strong with no loose threads.
It's pretty obvious, but heavyweight items last longer than something more delicate. It also depends how often you wear something. My suggestions: - A bridle leather briefcase (such as Swaine, Adeney & Brigg).
