Jack Georges Briefcases

post #1 of 7

Can anyone speak to the quality of these briefcases? I'm looking for something more formal than Filson, Saddleback, et al around the $400-$600 (not ready for SAB yet) price point and like the look of their stuff. Thanks.

Might want to check out Strong Eye Leather. There was another thread here about them.

They recently sold them at my local Costco and I'm marginally in the market for a briefcase. I wasn't particularly impressed with the quality of construction or the styles available. But then again, I'm an idiot.

Hmmm...why are you an idiot? Do you have experience with leather briefcases?

I've had a JG briefcase for 5+ years now, and am perfectly happy with it. If you don't go in expecting SAB quality, you'll be happy as well - well worth the sub-$400 price I paid.

 

EDIT: Here's the one I have:

Thanks, Eustace. This is very helpful!

Consider your image.  If rustic is what you want (and it may be perfect), the Saddleback  or the others mentioned are great.

Jack Georges are conservative.  If that is what you want or need to project then they are fine.  Consider a used SAB on Ebay.  Best of the best.
