Skytop's Pullman Briefcase: Saddleback toughness with extra class? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

Thank Mr XPX.

 

I checked the japanese website. Unfortunately it comes with a built in lock and it seems that is the only mechanism to keep the bag close. If I were to carry heavy items looks like its going to break at that point.

 

Btw there is nothing cheap about SBL in terms of quality. Have you actually own one? The only reason I'm looking at Skytop Pullman and their other product is because of the lining and ofcourse the elegant look. SBL use only pigskin lining and it makes the bag a little stiff and takes some work and time to break it in.

 

I can't wait to own one of the Pullman in the same brown colour.

Hey DJackson

Great informative post.  

Was making the rounds looking for a future replacement for a ghurka bag - received as a gift ≈ 9 years ago, treated somewhat roughly - as one should with an every day bag - but I can say ghurka has been a disappointment, and I won't be purchasing another.

Had ended up looking at SBL, which are of course nice, but was searching and came across these.  

A few questions if you have a second:

1. Does the absence of brass or other metal "feet" on the bottom bother at all?

2. Does the bag stand upright ?

3. Any wear and tear issues this far in?

It better be a lifetime bag for this price point - any info/photos appreciated. 

Thanks for the info.

Having recently changed job situations I'm now more mobile than I used to be. I've been on the hunt for something a bit more casual than my formal British style, big 2 gusset flap-top case and think Skytop's newer Telegraph might be just the ticket. Same overall aesthetic as the bigger Pullman, but smaller and slimmer:

Here's the telegraph in Whiskey (from Skytop here )


But, before I pull the trigger, I've got all the same long-term questions for @DJackson as @RuleOfRescue had above. I see DJ hasn't been online in quite a while, I'm going to PM him and see if I can get him back here for an update...

In the meantime, does anyone else have any experience to share?
