Thank you for dropping by our thread. Noticed it's your first post - we're honoured!
Really good questions.
We've talked about raising our prices for some time now. $489 is not sustainable in the long-run.
Most likely prices will increase to $549 for the soft briefcase this summer. Perhaps more. We'll make the final call in a few weeks.
We'll also increase the price of all women's products. They're dirt cheap right now for what they are.
There will be no changes in construction. Leather quality will be the same - full grain vegetable tanned leather. Just different hands making them.
PS: We're running low on the mocha briefcase and we won't re-stock until the fall. Just in case you were thinking of pulling the trigger.
Mocha briefcase is already sold out when I check it today.
Bad news. Originally, i believe i can get one before the price adjustment.
