Recently completed bespoke briefcase for a very happy client.
Lovely Horween leather fully lined with Italian suit wool.
Completely hand sewn, and I make all of the handles and buckles as well using solid brass and hardwoods. This one features American walnut and BC maple.
The inserts are fully removable so you can turn the briefcase into an overnighter.
The matching strap is padded and lined with the same Italian wool and a custom made buckle.
Check it out...

Hi everybody!

I hope this is the right thread to ask this : I found a Dunhill Bourdon briefcase on Grailed, but as this is the fourth one this particular seller sells, I am a bit wary. He's in the US, I spoke with him and he's really articulate and willing to help, and his explanation regarding why he is selling so much Dunhill briefcases seems legit, but I wanna be completely sure before buying. I am not wealthy and would hate to buy a fake.

 

Here are the pictures :

xpost from the manbag thread where I didn't get any traction. Looking for any input on Skytop cases (see below). Given that they appear to be of excellent quality and a reasonable aesthetic, I'm surprised I haven't seen more about them on the forum.

But then lo and behold I stumbled across this thread about Skytop's Pullman briefcase. While the Pullman was bigger than what I wanted I was totally awestruck by the construction and quality. After visiting their website, I found that they've since come out with a slimmer "Telegraph" model. I think I'm head over heels in love with it in Whiskey:



I'm going to give myself a day or two to cool off, but I'm really thinking that's "the one". Skytop has some videos of their products and they just seem to be of super high quality and (for me) split the middle between professional formal and casual.

Still, I'm fishing for anyone's input - anything similar out there and/or anyone with a Skytop that can comment on them?

Thanks for your help! He told me he gets spillover from big VIP events held by a public affairs company run by a relative of his.

Can anyone kindly give me some feedback on St Dupont Ligne D Élysées brown briefcase? Is it durable and does the leather get a good patina over time?

Also drooling over Moynat's Juste A Tempes but I think it is way beyond my budget.

Picked up a Whipping Post Zip Top Briefcase this week.  Really loving that leather smell.  :)

I was in Cannes a few days ago and had to purchase the Berluti "Un Jour." I have an Hermès Sac à Dépêches in black, so needed a brown bag.
