What do you think of this briefcase design?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am interested in getting one like this made in about 1.5mm "thin" tan bridle hide with brass zippers. Overall dimensions will be 17"x12.5"x7". This thickness will give the case a soft look while retaining the durability and patina of bridle leather which I like so much.

The case will be used when in-town as well as when I am travelling to keep papers and a laptop, hence its somewhat larger dimension. Key considerations are convenience (zippers and no fussy straps), durability (bridle), informal look (hence soft construction), patina (tan colour).

Thoughts?

What if the front pockets are removed, and only placed on the case when travelling? I think the twin handles also make it look like a weekend bad. What if it were replaced by a single handle?

i dont think single or double handle will make much difference to be honest i think it is just the shape that is not right and it just looks big!

I think you would get tired of undoing those buckles in order to get to the side pockets.

I am intending to have the side pockets customized to zippers.

Well, since you asked, I don't really like it, but it seems to match all of your "key considerations". If it fits your wants/needs and you're happy with it then that's what matters.

It is like a Tumi in bridle

Flap over briefcases are great for in-town use, but quite useless when one is travelling because it can't hold more than a few sheets of paper. Since I would like to use it when I am travelling also, this seems more functional.

Anyways, I am still undecided between functionality or classic good looks.
