If you think you'd like it, then you probably will. Nice materials, well-made, not a ridiculous price-point.

Thanks for your input, especially about the double gusset vs. single. I think you've convinced me that double is the way to go.I recommend the double gusset bag. I have the double gusset Frank Clegg and often wish it were larger. The underloaded double gusset takes up no more space than the single gusset and you have the option to add more. If you overload the single gusset it will quickly stretch and become rounded and less crisp looking, and you will wish you had the larger bag. And the double will more readily stand on its own. The triple gusset felt oversized to me. The double is perfect. Lotuff seems like a nice company, but Frank and his family are so full of win, you should go with Frank Clegg. You should also look at the shrunken leather. It is a second layer of leather over the bag you selected, and it will wear exceedingly well. Available only from Frank Clegg.
It looks like it might be a copy of the Delvaux Newspaper Bag. I say copy simply because the zipper pull is different, and it isn't embossed with "1829" at the bottom. But I don't know a ton about the brand, and this one might well be genuine. In any event, I think a real one would set you back by about $3,000 brand new.
Hello all, If anyone has any questions about bags please send me a direct email at [email protected] Would be happy to help. Ian CleggI'm in the market for one of the following Frank Clegg bags if anyone has one they're willing to get rid of:
If it's your only one, probably true. Mine is a single, but I've got a 20-year-old 6" deal bag from Glaser that does the industrial-strength carrying when necessary. The role of this one is a casually-elegant thing for documents, not a ton of books.Thanks for your input, especially about the double gusset vs. single. I think you've convinced me that double is the way to go.
Very well made and i am sure you will get many years with this bag.For the past seven years, I’ve carried a Hartmann double-compartment ziptop briefcase in dark cognac belting leather. It’s been perfectly functional but has never been anything great to look at. In the last year or so, though, it’s started to look pretty rough around the edges, with no amount of Bick 4 or Lexol succeeding in buffing out scratches, and the leather over the plastic piping around the outer edges of the bag wearing off and exposing the plastic. So, a few months ago, I decided it was time to invest in a new bag.

Thanks for the kind remarks!Very well made and i am sure you will get many years with this bag.
1- How heavy is the bag when empty?
2- Whenever i see this kinda construction i can't help but think the handle and strap area is only as strong as the thread stitched to it, what is your opinion on this?
Is there anymore reinforcements done at that area?
