I would agree - looks handstitched to me. Chrome tanned calf is also a very Hermes material

Thanks again guys! Doug

Those look nice, but I am kind of anti-kickstarter. People just trying to quit their jobs without putting in the hard work and building their brand by making it stand for itself.

my SAB finally arrived over the weekend and its out on its maiden voyage

i made some modifications like switching out the lock for the circle one, having the padded center gusset for my laptop, adding the newspaper long-width back pocket, pen holders and card holder on first gusset

this thing just exudes quality and got several stares and a few compliments at sbux already

very happy with how it turned out. communication was on and off via email but susan at SAB came through for me at the end. as long as you arent in a rush, ordering direct from SAB is definitely the way to go if you have specific requests

I'm looking for a "clean design" folio with envelope flap cover and a lock. Similiar to the one from Pickett in the spoilered picture below.
Can anyone recommend similar ones on the market? Thanks

I would check out JP Macellinos site. Even if there isn't a stock one on the site I am more that sure he can help you create one just like that. I love his work.

That looks to be a Gladstone bag. Good for stacking shirts, etc., on an overnight.

RFClarkSaddlery seems to make pretty good bags for a decent price (300 GBP for a two compartment briefcase in dark london tan) without any fuss -- http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/127367872/the-milton-leather-briefcase-in-dark?ref=shop_home_active

RFClarkSaddlery made for Swaine Adeney Brigg.

"I have been making items out of leather for over 30 years. I originally a trained as a Saddler at a small country Saddlery in Wiltshire and attended Saddlery College in Salisbury. I then went on to train in the making of fine leathergoods at one of Englands most prestigeous leathergoods companies, Swaine Adeney and Brigg. My association with this Company lasted over 20 years and led me to make products for Royalty, Celebrities and the Rich and Famous."

I still refer to myself as a Saddler and produce a small amount of items of saddlery each year, but my speciality is the making of Traditional English Briefcases and luggage."

DougEfresh414, that one's a Gladstone bag. Likely too heavy for everyday office use but just the thing for overnight stays, weekend trips and general travel. These are very expensive even with machine-sewing, even more so with lock-stitch seams. Heirloom pieces in the true sense of the word. I'd fight my sister over one of these any day.

I am just starting to look at briefcases and came across one from Suitsupply which I seem to like (Pictures are below). My only concern is that they are selling for $449; is the quality worth it? I really like the slim style that it has - I would only need it to carry: 15" laptop, notepad, iPad and a charger or two. 

 

Does anyone have any other recommendations?

 

Thanks!

Hi Realtor

 

Have a look at the Knomo Henderson. These are very well made bags. I have the Warwick which has two zips compartments.

Thanks

I just finished making this yesterday, and thought I'd post....the concept is based around stripping a double-gusseted briefcase down in form, but keeping the detail. No front, back, or side pockets like my other bags. I wanted the surfaces to be almost like a blank canvas, with the stitching and the detail in the leather to draw the eye. Black is actually one of the toughest leather 'colours' to look high quality. Cheaper stuff tends to look coated or plasticy, or uncomfortably matte. I used a stiffer calfskin from France. It has some incredible depth that I've never really seen in black leather, with just enough gloss and natural markings to make it stand out. The second photo should show best what I mean by that. Completely saddle-stitched by hand. The interior is lined in red lamb suede from France.
