Nice. What price range should I be thinking about?
It'll depend on the details, but in unlined Bakers London Tan, just like the photos it would be £750. We can do lots of alternative leathers and it could also be fully lined if desired though

You want Appreciation, I'll give you Appreciation. Here is my Simon Baker bag. When I received it in 2012, I promptly sold my SAB as it just couldn't compare. I think I paid $1,000 up-charge to have the whole thing hand stitched (which Simon did a beautiful job on). He insisted on no zippers or lining as those are the things that fail so I did add a small inner bag of pig skin on a lanyard to keep suff like a wallet or passport from falling out.

Overall, this is the thickest and stiffest bag I have handled. I was hoping for some sun today but its raining cats and dogs so you have to deal with unnatural lighting and pictures snapped from my Moto phone (amateur Appreciation?).

Hello All,

Just to let those who might be interested know, Simon Baker died not long ago. He'd had some problems over the last few years, but he was a excellent craftsman as the photos above show and will be missed

Hi Guys,

Next design done and the first case nearly made. This is a lighter version of our full sized case for those looking for somthing lighter in weight and smaller in size. Its 15" x 11" x 3 1/2" with a single compartment. I'll post some more photos when its done and on the website but it looks good so far I think, I really like the balance and proportion of the straps, the body and the flap.

Hi All,

Heres our Music Case, thought Id share some photos. As with all our briefcases this is full grain oak bark bridle, and entirely hand stitched. Its a slightly quirky design that I really like and is very suited to carrying a lighter load than a full sized briefcases or for those with a lighter frame (like me) who might not want the size of a full briefcase. Its 15" wide x 10" high and 1 3/8" deep (38cm x 26cm x 3.5cm approx)
