Works well enough even though it has more room than I need most days.

 I was very impressed by the quality of my co-worker's Floto. He either has the Floto Poste Messenger or Novella (I can't remember) and I almost bought it off of him.

I really like the finish on it although it's stamped leather rather than full-grain. It's held up well so far with almost no signs of wear after 9 months. I had wanted a LV taiga type brief but couldn't justify paying LV prices ($4000+ for something similar)

Mine is from Ottino in Florence and looks more or less like this one.
It is over 20 years old and the lock still works. I don't remember what I paid,
but it was several hundred then

is the model.

Dunhill chassis single zip: http://www.dunhill.co.uk/the-shop/leather/bags-and-luggage/l3j281a/chassis-single-zip-briefcase


Quite rare to find something so so simply and, but at the same time completely unique with the carbon fibre print.

That, and the medium looks more like a purse unless you're a very small dude.

I use a Lotuff and Clegg leather satchel, though now the company has split into Lotuff Leather and Frank Clegg Leatherworks. Every once in a while, I use a Filson 257, but it's rare.

What are the pros and cons of buckle vs zip briefcases? Will one be more versatile / stay in style longer?

I use an old school Hartmann Briefcase -- no tweed.  It is the belting leather but it is a burgundy sort of cordovan color.  Nothing fancy 


This is not mine, just one like it on ebay.  Nothing fancy.

I would like to have one like this:
