Briefcase porn thread - Page 170

post #2536 of 2580


I'm a detail guy, and I notice too much sometimes, but I'm going to speak up here because I think it's important to note that there are some design/craftsmanship oversights that will probably affect the longevity of this bag.

 

 

  • Loose stitching on the cardholder (what would be the top right corner, if it were upright.)
  • Zipper installation is not okay - it looks as if the panel was mis-cut and they folded it at the end of the zipper to accommodate the slack. Or they're using the zipper as structure. Literally never seen this before. Nonetheless, the stress on the leather and zipper are not ideal.
  • Two weird metal clips that will most assuredly fall off at the top of the gussets. Hopefully they're just decorative.

 

 

Also, Vachetta leather in a loose definition is typically vegetable tanned leather that has not been finished in any way. This looks to be pretty well oiled/fattened/colored.

 

I'd have second guesses about this brand. Don't get me wrong, I'm biased - but hear me out, I think a good, mass-manufactured bag from a decent brand is going to look better, and last much longer than this one at a price point that's possibly lower.

Tods briefcase

It looks kind of like a Tods, but the straps on the body look different from what I can find. 

 

Also, I think that Tod's has non-contrasting piping on the seams and a little more of a 'finished' look. This looks more like turned seams and possibly a little more rugged. 

 

They're extremely similar, though. 

 

The 'raised' look of the straps on the body may be what you're looking for.

Then you got the answer. Nowhere.

A somewhat spacious and fully lined interior. No fancy pen pockets on this one.
