It's a piece of living, working history:

Nice! Thanks for sharing.

I'll remove the two bonus shots soon, to keep this thread right on topic

Probably isn't the right place for this post, so apologies in advance.

I've been looking for a briefcase like this for some time, but I want to draw on all of your collective wisdom to see what alternatives exist in the non-Gucci/LV/Hermes brands.

Any thoughts?

Been using this for a year and I'm pretty happy with it. The photo color is a bit saturated but it's a burgundy/dark brown, very minimulistic (single gusset, almost no zippers/pockets), and fits my 14" work laptop perfectly. I looked at Ferragamo, too much going on. Mont Blanc has a good one but they only came in black.

+1 here. This is the style I have decided on as well. Just haven't found the right bag yet.

My Glaser Designs flaptop. I just had the pleasure of visiting the Glaser Designs workshop in SF, and my experience meeting the Glasers makes owning this case that much more special.

The Glaser looks wonderful - great patina. How long have you had it?

Thank you. The bag is several years old, although I acquired it only recently. The bag actually didn't look as good initially; Myron suggested conditioning the leather with Nivea, and I think the results speak for themselves

Does anyone know anything about this Billykirk bag they did for JCrew? It looks like the medium carryall but it ... might not be? I'm confused.

I am absolutely in love with these Glaser bags. I would love to find one aged but they don't seem to come up too often!

Beautiful overall design, colour and attention to detail.
