    I started looking for a briefcase and I was glad to have found this thread after reviewing all the comments and pricing for cases it came down to Henry Tompkins and Hrothgar Stibbon and in the end I picked Hrothgar based on the leather they use.

    I looked at the facebook page and I liked the Winchester model with the round lock and I also requested a bigger case 17 inches wide by 12 inches in height. I also requested 3 gussets instead of 2, leather strap was also a special request, color is conker.

    I had the case shipped to my friend in Scotland who brought it to me here in Thailand and his comments when he saw it were that was very high quality which it is.

    Communication was great and I would recommend Roth as a true craftsman who makes excellent cases for a great price.

    If I were to have one small complaint it would be the strap as it's very thick like a belt and could be thinner and lighter.

    The case with this type of leather and the strap is not light weight however it is an amazing case of high quality for a great price that will last longer than me.[​IMG]

    Hello guys!

    Can you kindly help me with my quest to find a perfect briefcase.

    I can spend around $400.

    Below you can see what type of briefcases I am looking at:

    I need something that is not to bulky, but occasionally can fit my 15 inch laptop and my chicken and rice lunchbox.

    Since I live in EU, EU suppliers would be great (no hassle with customs).

    Thank you in advance

    What color do you want? If you are ok with black the Whitehouse Cox bag that was posted a couple pages ago from the company's outlet is a fantastic deal. High quality bridle leather and pigskin lining. Slim too. Should fall right withing your price range. Personally I would want a shade of brown, but that's a matter of personal taste.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Whitehous...Briefcase-Winter-Special-Offer-/191833730432?

    Linjer makes an outstanding product for the price too. They don't do sales, but you can get one of their bags for right around $500 USD. Black, Brown, Cognac and Navy.

    http://www.linjer.co/collections/men-best-sellers/products/soft-briefcase-mocha

    There are a couple of these available on our Buy/Sell marketplace from members at a good price:

    Black: http://www.styleforum.net/t/520254/linjer-soft-briefcase-for-sale

    Navy, which is a very versatile color that pairs well with blacks and browns: http://www.styleforum.net/t/518770/3-28-drop-new-linjer-soft-briefcase-navy-leather

    Otherwise read up on this thread as this question had been asked and answered a few times recently. You will be sure to find more ideas by doing so. :)

    Brown is preferable.

    Thank you so much for your effort. I will check out your links.

    EDIT:

    Have checked the links you provided.

    Whitehouse - Dont like the look.

    Linjer - Looks perfect but I am afraid that Linjer is to slim for my needs. I think It will not hold my laptop, charger, moleskine, and lunch box ;)

    If there is one with Linjer looks but little fatter it would be great.

    Latest briefcase that I'm working on. Made from Antelope with a Barenia calfskin trim. I had to keep the claw marks on the front!

    Fantastic!

    A great piece of hide for an interesting case.

    Cheers,

    On Frank Clegg's webstore, no. His bags are sold via a few online retailers (Like NMWA for one) and may end up going on sale with one of them.

    I do know that he sometimes has items that didn't make it by QA. Small defects or imperfections that he will sell at discounted prices, but you have to email them directly for availability. My experience is a lot of 2nds from quality brands like this have such minor issues that hardly anyone would ever notice them.
