I've been on the hunt to find a carry-all for a while when I found this vintage Bugatti briefcase at Goodwill for $10 (high roller, I am). At first, I thought it was a bit too bulky, boxy, and...schlumpy-looking? but once I tested out my fairly standard commuting load in the bag, I was convinced that it was a good, functional size for me. The leather feels nice and soft, as well. I'm one of those people who brings my padded-sleeved laptop and tupperwares of leftovers from home every day and then takes transit or bikes to work; therefore, I just can't hang with 4" depth bags as much as I believe they look and feel superior. I also think it's large enough for weekend travel, or at least an overnighter. I have no details about this bag because the company's website is nothing but an online catalog and no one on the web seems to really talk about this brand.
What do you think about how it looks? I don't think it will win any style contents, especially here, but I came to this bag from using a black Duluth Scout Pack or black Rickshaw Zero messenger, so I think it's still a step up for my 27-year old self. I also work in a nonprofit where backpacks are the norm and denim is the dress code (my executive director uses an orange timbuk2 messenger bag), and so even this is a fair oddity. I have an otter green Filson zippered tote on the way, and it's pretty much the same volume as this bag, but maybe I'll miss the organization and shorter handles? I'll find out soon.
