    Plus another $100 for shipping,that briefcase is huge.


    Which is why I left it alone - I have no need, nor desire, to carry that quantity of paperwork in a heavy bridle leather case. You'll dislocate your shoulder if you try to carry one filled to capacity.

    Hmmm. Maybe you should hit the gym. It's not that heavy.

    It's not heavy,it's just bulky to carry around. I've seen it in the store and I would feel out of place to carry that thing,not that I would carry it. Aren't you at law school? You should be getting it.

    I probably would have thrown a bid in if it was darker. That color is not my cup of tea. I'd take it really cheap, but I can't pay that much for a color I'm not crazy over. I've seen them for $150 @ the BB clearance center once.

    DON'T BUY THOSE. THAT IS THE SAME GUY THAT SCAMMED ME OUT OF $1000!!!!! HE ALSO SCAMMED STEPHENSTYLE. I guarantee you won't get the shoes. The seller has a way to get around the proof of delivery paypal requirement for a dispute.

    The Gidden briefcase is exceptional, if members can live without bridle leather. The gray herringbone Invertere duffel coat has been joined by a camel duffle coat in the Elysian twill fabric. Low starting bids. Both would be banned by my wife, so the field is clear.

    That Hermes suitcase is in my sniper targets..... and NO the seller wont end early for a BIN. I asked [​IMG]

    I didnt say HOW much my snipe was set for [​IMG] but I collect (edit - collected before my wife got pissed at the size of the collection) vintage luggage and steamers.. I have Goyards, LVs, but a croc Hermes is the Holy Grail for me. I fully expect to be outbid, but Im hoping to get lucky.

    So were you the lucky bidder? It went for "only" $4,100.

    Nah... I quit early. I really thought it would go for less, even though Im sure its worth much more... but I can pretty much guess that would be the only one of these you will see for a very, very long time. Thanks for showing it to us.
