Nice Tomkins. I conditioned mine with Obenauf's which darkened it a little bit and softened it, too. Now that it's been 4 months I will probably condition it again. I get lots of compliments on the bag.

But in brown.


Opinions? Quality? I'm buying it new but for much less then the Ashton site price.

so I was mistaken on the spelling, but purchased the Aston 218-BC briefcase. it's identical to the one I posted in the quote, but dark brown.

anyone else here own an Aston?

The grainy website pictures does not allow you to focus in on the leather...
probably trying to hide something grainy...AVIOD.

ok so I didn't realize you two replied to my post until now. I bought the case for 90 bucks, so it's going to do for now.

I'm no leather aficionado here so I can't tell you much on the material, but for a case that I needed asap, it's pretty good.

I didn't know what I wanted or needed in a case until now. from here, I'll look for things like function and feel when searching for my next case. the flap is very firm, I wish it were easier to fold open. it's sturdy and has what I want, good handle and straps, good locking, great room for a medium case.

Should I post pics of it somehow, or do you guys not care to see it? lol

Never mind the briefcase, I want his chair.

I like the desk.

That is a hell of a score for Frank. And a hell of a bag for Barack. So cool.

So is this guy an assistant principal in a local high school? That is one roughly attired group - Calling Jos A. Bank to the white courtesy phone. I could not "want" anything in that picture.

People who are forced to dress "nicely" every day tend to have a bad habit of wearing really ugly "nice" things. Unless you take it up as a hobby/interest instead of just a requirement, you're probably going to look like you rent your suits.

I don't understand this reply. When you work in government are you prohibited from owning a full length mirror?

Government salaries and DC rents don't leave much for good clothes-- unless you don't need the job in the first place.
