    This is my favourite briefcase, very little leather, the hard, not-highest-grade-hide kind (needs to be conditioned), with a rattan or jute textured exterior.

    I bought it when I was in Singapore. I don't use briefcases much- they look a little odd with my ultra casual dress-code (t-shirt and jeans), but it is nice to bring it out for formal interviews.

    The compliments are gratifying, especially when people express their willingness to pay much more for it than I ever did. At least one person made such an offer, but it was one I could refuse.

    The few nice and unique things I have, which I know I won't find anytime soon, are simply not for sale, unless the price is well beyond my expectations.

    Is that grain calf or buffalo? In either case, nice cases all around.

    Is this from the seller nick1974selling on ebay? Though most of his items end up way out of my price range I love to ooh and ahh at the vintage leather items he sells. Some of the briefcases are unbelievable. EDIT: Just remembered I saved a couple photos of one I really liked. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My Filson field satchel, made from bridle leather. It's pretty awesome now, but in a couple more years it's going to be off-the-chart sweet.

    If anyone is interested, I have a the same case, brand new in box with tags, for $200 off retail. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...lson+briefcase

    What do you guys think about this briefcase?

    [​IMG]

    I am thinking of getting it. I like the idea of having two pockets on the side of the briefcase for putting personal effects.

    Do you have his exact ID? nick1974 isn't a seller and I couldn't find it in the close matches.
