Just received this Glenroyal bag as a sort of backup -- it's in heavily grained hide. Glenroyal just got profiled in Monocle, so, hey, I guess it's trendy with the Tyler Brule-set now...

I just got this SAB in the mail. I'm looking forward to growing old with this thing.

That Pratesi on the previous page is beautiful

Is that the 18-inch bag? How large does it look?
post #79 of 1879
It is the 18" bag. It is a big bag but very manageable. I'm 6'2" and I wouldn't want a smaller bag.

Just got my Aspinal of London bag yesterday. It's gorgeous, but I opened it once, took out the strap and closed it again. Attached the strap, admired it all at several angles, went to reopen it and, by god, it wouldn't open.

Absolutely stuck. Since it's from England, let me restate: Sod that. The bugger's stuck.

I'm awaiting a call back from Aspinal. So disappointed.

Hi, this may not help but from memory the Aspinal briefcase fastening looks like it opens from both sides but only one side actually pushes in. I looked at one in a shop and couldn't figure out how to open it for ages. Could this be the problem?

That's correct, Tidybeard. But after the first go round, the left one (the slider) refused to slide. Tried the key, tried cursing and threatening, begged and so forth. The elegance of the latch appealed to me, but now I'm worried that, even if fixed or replaced, that it will prove too finicky or delicate for a normal day-to-day workplace/travel environment. It's a bummer.

Sorry to hear that, I hope they look after you.
post #84 of 1879
Thank you. Me too. And now I have to restart the search, alas.

Have had this for some time now, gets better with age. No dayly use Realy soft calfleather.
post #86 of 1879
Some very nice cases guys

Cases are like shoes for me, I never seem to have the one for every occasion. Here's the current rotation;


Hidesign




Another Hidesign (these are very tough bags and reasonably priced)




Tumi ballistic




Briggs & Riley ballistic




Bought in Italy, can't remember where from. Nice soft calf leather with retractable handles - more of a folio really but there isn't a folio porn thread....




Mulholland Brothers Angler's Bag (in lariat leather but treated with conditioner which brings the colour down to a level I like a lot).

Hi all. I had done alot of research as I was looking for a smaller, well-made all-leather bag, like a day-bag or typical "european carry-all," and found this one, the Treviso from Tony Perotti. Does anyone have any opinions on the bag or its manufacturer, Tony Perotti? They do manufacture in China , but own the factory and were adament about QC. The bag itself seems quite well made, as is their wallets. Just wanted to see what others thought. I had considered some other similar ones from Heilemann, Hansonn, Tuscany Leather, etc.

I have an assortment of high quality vintage cases made out of exotic species such as the crocodile, the walrus and the python--perfect for job interviews and the like.
