Briefcase porn thread - Page 73

post #1081 of 1957
After over 12 months of wait and research finally about 20 minutes ago I pulled the trigger on the bellow briefcase. I wanted some thing classic, some thing that will last a life time , something I will love to carry everyday. I wanted some thing that is made in uk using bridle leather. And finally I found this. First of all sizing on this briefcase is just perfect for me. It also comes with a leather strap(which is a good option IMO) .And price has also played important role. This briefcase I paid total EUR 765 (including shipping), which equals to approx $971 AUD. And purchase under $1000 AUD we don't have to pay tax . It was really hard to find a briefcase that ticked all my requirements and priced under $1k. Anyway this is in Classic Cambridge tan and I will post some pictures once it arrives.

Is this made in China ?
This could just be one of the "Generic Brand" !

No, it does not say made in china.... It was around 500 usd last 1997 bought in the italian section of a major legit mall.

Good looking bag. Don't know how much I'd like, over time, fiddling with straps to get into the front pockets (which, essentially, should be easy access for quickly needed stuff), but aesthetically it's lovely.

I find I like the LOOKS of buckle-type bags much more than I like them in person. Though they are stylistically less pleasing, a simple snap or zipper closure makes it much easier for me to get to whatever I need.

Excellent choice. I carried this same bag for 20+ years. It would have outlasted me, too. I'm now enjoying my SAB/Peal lid over, while the Atlas now belongs to one of my partners.

Yeah, I agree with this; they look a lot better, but they are indeed a pain to get into in a hurry. And pretty much impossible to do so with one hand.

I'd much rather spend my money on another suit or nice dress shoes than a briefcase at this moment. So can anyone provide suggestions on a cheap briefcase to get my by.

Thanks!


I was in a similar boat as you and I went for a filson briefcase. [=http://www.filson.com/images/products/detail/70256-main-242.jpg][/]

It's well over $100 but it will last you, and break in nicely. When the time come to get something nicer you'll be pleased to repurpose it.

Good luck.

Exactly. Grabbing a phone call, a pen to write a quick note or sign something, a train pass, etc. (or basically anything you'd put in the front pockets) can't be gotten to quickly with a buckle.

Looking more closely at the pic, it appears that the top leather part may unbutton, not buckle. In that case, that may solve some of the "access" problem, but then leads to another dilemma... why have the buckles at all? There really is very little reason to need to have an adjustable flap on the front flap pockets...

Obviously, this is all very picky, but I think it's good to help G&G out with detailed comments like this; top-tier bag customers don't want to "settle" and want something nearly perfect.

Love the overall color, texture, and layout of the bag, though...

What's the pricing?

Rach, that's right - the upper part of the strap "unbuttons" so that you don't have to fasten and unfasten the buckles all the time. I had a camera bag like that some years ago and, whilst it wasn't a bad system, it's not my favourite style of fastener. I suppose that the decision to retain the buckles is more of a stylistic choice than anything else.

I was thinking of buying this one. But just too small for me. Like the lock.

Gents,
I thought I will give you guys a quick warning. Last week I purchased a SAB briefcase for 765 Euro (just under $1k aud) from - www.torquato.net
Now they have processed the payments - so it went away form authorizations and appeared on my statement today . And now I get an email form them saying they will not ship the goods to me.And asking me to send them money directly to their account !!! Its odd that they charged my card without shipping the products. Any legit merchant will only charge you once they ship . If they decided not to ship they will not process the authorization. Becos one a merchant process a transaction and not ship the goods credit card holder can raise a dispute. And merchant will have to pay charge back processing fees of any where between $30-$45.
I know this becos I work at a bank. Anyway I will raise a dispute against them tomorrow as goods not delivered. SAB briefcase under $1k ? Didn't think so.
I think these guys are frauds.


Honestly pissed off . My birthday around the corner and this was a gift to my self. Below is the email that they sent me.censored.gif

Dear xxx,

Thank you for your answer.

The address you provided was not confirmed by the bank. Due to the high value of your order, we cannot accept the card payment and had to refund the amount of EUR 765,08. You should be able to see this refund on your next crdeit card statement. We would kindly ask you for your payment in advance into our bank account before we can proceed with the current order.

We truly apologise for the inconvenience caused but hope for your understanding.

Kind regards

Torquato
