Thank you all.
I have been carrying a GF 3 gusset briefcase for about a dozen years now. It is very well made and stands up to rough treatment. Inside, it has lots of pen slots, cell phone pocket, business card holder etc. so various things go neatly into their respective places.
Pricewise, it is midrange, much cheaper than the other brands you have mentioned, which makes it the best bang for the buck. There is a Gold Pfeil store on Ebay and you can get a beautifully made one for about $600.http://cgi.ebay.com/GOLDPFEIL-NEW-BL...item1e576091af
Their products are supposed to be handmand: "Goldpfeil, a company located in Offenbach Germany which has been producing some of the finest handmade
leather goods in the world since 1856."
One thing though, part of the interior is lined in fabric and not leather.
Qualitywise, I would place it slightly below a Mark Cross or a Dupont, two other briefcases that I have.
