xpost from the manbag thread where I didn't get any traction. Looking for any input on Skytop cases (see below). Given that they appear to be of excellent quality and a reasonable aesthetic, I'm surprised I haven't seen more about them on the forum.

I've been looking for an office briefcase / laptop bag that's not formal but still office/client presentable (think more sport coat than suit, if you get my drift). I wanted something reasonably slim and I think I still want leather.

I thought I had settled on the Fat Carter by La Portegna (here in Sol brown):


But then lo and behold I stumbled across this thread about Skytop's Pullman briefcase. While the Pullman was bigger than what I wanted I was totally awestruck by the construction and quality. After visiting their website, I found that they've since come out with a slimmer "Telegraph" model. I think I'm head over heels in love with it in Whiskey:



I'm going to give myself a day or two to cool off, but I'm really thinking that's "the one". Skytop has some videos of their products and they just seem to be of super high quality and (for me) split the middle between professional formal and casual.

Still, I'm fishing for anyone's input - anything similar out there and/or anyone with a Skytop that can comment on them?

Hi everybody! I hope this is the right thread to ask this : I found a Dunhill Bourdon briefcase on Grailed, but as this is the fourth one this particular seller sells, I am a bit wary. He's in the US, I spoke with him and he's really articulate and willing to help, and his explanation regarding why he is selling so much Dunhill briefcases seems legit, but I wanna be completely sure before buying. I am not wealthy and would hate to buy a fake. Here are the pictures : Thanks a lot for your help!
looks legit. why is he selling so much dunhill on grailed?

Can anyone kindly give me some feedback on St Dupont Ligne D Élysées brown briefcase? Is it durable and does the leather get a good patina over time?

Also drooling over Moynat's Juste A Tempes but I think it is way beyond my budget.

Picked up a Whipping Post Zip Top Briefcase this week. Really loving that leather smell. :)

I was in Cannes a few days ago and had to purchase the Berluti "Un Jour." I have an Hermès Sac à Dépêches in black, so needed a brown bag.

Ever since I first saw this range, I've wanted to make something similar. It has great depth of character. I have some very deep purple leather which is antiqued like the Berluti leather.

Would love to see the deep purple, Craftsman. Sounds cool!
