La Portgena "Fat Carter" Briefcase in Sol brown.
$490 CONUS Firm (vs $650+ new)
I bought this about a year ago from No Man Walks Alone and I transitioned my position around the same time to where I don't really need a briefcase and it just hasn't gotten any use since a maiden voyage. It had an initial bath of Saphir Renovateur when it first came out of the box for good measure but other than that, it's been a closet queen.
It's in practically new condition, the only marks are from a normal day's use and you'll eclipse them as soon as you start using it. It really is a great bag and if I saw myself remotely needing it in the foreseeable future I'd keep it, but after a year of it sitting I just don't. My loss, your gain.

Quick note on the "sol" brown color: La Portegna seems to have a range of hues with this. You'll find various stores where it
spans from tan (like on No Man Walks Alone) to mid/dark brown (like on La Portegna's site). I've tried to capture mine as accurately as I can but, if I was going to describe it I'd say mine is more like a cognac; like the front facing picture on the La Portegna site, but a couple of shades lighter.
Will ship USPS Priority 2-3 Day with tracking. It will ship in the No Man Walks Alone box.
