Ever since I first saw this range, I've wanted to make something similar. It has great depth of character. I have some very deep purple leather which is antiqued like the Berluti leather.

Would love to see the deep purple, Craftsman. Sounds cool!

I recently picked up a Vermilyea Pelle briefcase to replace a well-used Timbuk2.  The Timbuk2 served me well for around 8 or 9 years, but it was starting to get dilapidated, and - frankly - I was ready for a change.  The VP bag seems very well made, based on my limited knowledge of briefcase construction.  This particular build is 18oz olive drab canvas with veg-tan horsehide straps.  I've only had it for a week, but I'm already a fan of VP's products.

I bought the Dunhill, hope it'll be fine.

My recent purchase...

 

 

Zip-top briefcase from Frank Clegg leather works with single gusset and made from vegetable tanned belting leather.

I received it a couple of days ago, wanted to share pictures earlier but was a bit busy, hence doing this now.

Actually this post will be short since I can't describe this briefcase better than attached photos, in one word - perfect. I am very happy with my purchase. By the way in person it looks even better. A bit heavier than I thought, but I like this, translates some sort of robustness.

 

P.S.

 

I know Ian Clegg is a styleforum member as well - if you reading this post I would like to thank Frank Clegg leather works team for doing such a great work.

Beautiful, can I ask the price paid?
post #2288 of 2580

You can see all prices on the website. Price varies by desired configuration - with or w/o monogram, gusset single/double/triple etc. Overall it is not cheap, but also not expensive when you understand that such product is actually a long time investment and will last long period of time. Regarding numbers - in particular my cost me 900$ briefcase  + 25$ monogram (Shipping not mentioned since it depends on country you live in)

Thank you that's very reasonable!

This isn't Sarah Williams is it? Her original work, inspired by surrealism and Dali, is truly incredible stuff...

No, but I imagine that something like that could be a career goal. Her MFA is from the most prestigious program in Korea, but she doesn't really like the career path a lot of MFA's in her field take (working for designers).

Oddly enough, she did a series of bags inspired by Escher. Another series inspired by origami; each bag could be folded and snapped into 2-3 different shapes. Let me dig up some pictures. Website is in Korean, so it'll take a tic.

---

The Escher stuff is from 3-4 years ago, the origami from last year. Most definitely not my style, but Japanese folks like her stuff quite a bit (enough so that she's now learning Japanese as a result)





And then occasionally she does normal stuff. Which I like a lot more than her weird stuff (if I recall, she wants her next series to be evocative of insects o_O)

In response to the Clegg zip case, I was reminded of a recent case I had commissioned: 

 

This was a very interesting recreation of a well loved and much abused case. Here are some photos of the inspiration piece as well as the final product.

 

The clients original:

 

 

I worked with him to establish key measurements and a sense of material, and then we discussed the few modification he wanted to make to this stalwart case, and I incorporated these into the new design. The client had chosen London Tan English Bridle Butt from viewing my samples.

 

The final case:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Retractable handles, shoulder strap, pigskin suede lined exterior pockets, custom organizers on the interior partition, Riri zipper, London tan Sedgwicks bridle. Completely hand stitched in lin cable thread. The case is currently weathering sand and storm on development projects in the United Arab Emirates.

 

Cheers,

Shane Trudell
