Thanks!


I've had some contact with Henry via email regarding the briefcase I mentioned above. Seems like a nice gentleman, I'm currently awaiting leather swatches before I will decide upon a purchase.

That looks nice, but where did you get the list price?

What's the material and what's the history with Clematis?

No experience whatsoever. Just Googled Clematis Ginza. Found the bag on Ethan Desu's tumblr.

Since you brought up Lotuff, I'll say that I've been drooling+dreaming of two of their offerings:

Leather Satchel Briefcase:
1899318

Off topic, but worth seeing - Leather Trunk Duffle:
1899328

My English Briefcase from Lotuff-Clegg is wonderful. Frank Clegg was real cool about accommodating some personal requests, too.

I'm strongly considering giving Lotuff a try.

A bit too light for business use, IMO.  Shape is very nice.

It is really small. To be honest it doesn’t really fit my need. I carry umbrella , lunch box ,sunglasses and box of cigarette. And in winter gloves and scarf. And some times may be few other things.
Or should I get this –

That is better, and it should darken with age.

 

Design wise, the square stitching is not for me, but that is a minor gripe.

 

The problem is it is not gonna fit your standard lunch box- you will need a specially designed thin flat lunch box!  And forget about stuffing a retractable umbrella in that, it will go all out of shape.

 

Box of cigarette should be in your breast pocket- from an ex-smoker.
