Thanks for the input. I figured that would be the case (sadly, that made me chuckle). I came across a case I prefer very greatly over the saddleback, anyway. However, I fear this may be too big for my build as well, as the dimensions are as follows: 17.5" x 12" x 4"
Any opinions? This is the bag: http://frankcleggleatherworks.com/the-wall-street.html
Also, apologies to everybody on this thread as my questions have drifted away from Allen Edmonds. I will refrain from posting about briefcases promptly.
