    I like it best when G&G stick with classic styles like the lower pics above. The upper two look like they tried too hard.

    Boy that's a GREAT looking case. If you don't mind me asking... What was the price? EDIT: Googled "Navy Valextra" and guess what came up?! ($950? If so, WHAT a deal.)

    Thank you Style Forum.

    I work in Technology, travel 2-3 weeks/month and I am in a sea of ballistic nylon laptop bags.

    I have been obsessing and researching over the past 6 months to find a proper leather briefcase that is stylish, functional and exudes excellence in quality and craftsmanship. I didn't anticipate how difficult this would be.

    During my journey I came across many leather briefcases and was seriously considering:

    - SAB (Westminster Wrap)
    - Flison (Leather Field Satchel)
    - Walden Bags (Diplomoat)

    They all look to be of the highest quality, made by skilled leather artisans and I am sure that I would have been extremely pleased if I had picked any of them.

    But I finally made a decision.....

    Thanks to Norcal, yfyf, Sangfroid and Mark from Plano for your recommendation to Glaser Designs.

    I just pulled the trigger and have placed an order for a 5"deal bag in their burnished Chestnut saddle leather, which I feel will age best and is a perfect balance for size between being my travel and "day to day" bag. Looking forward to see what 3-5 years on the road will add to it's character.

    Spoke to both Myron and Kari and they are both first class.

    Myron took the time to go through my needs, went into specific detail about the process of tanning high-quality leather and the color (Vegetable tanned, it gets darker with age).

    According to Myron, it's going to take 4-5 weeks to build, and I am crossing the days off on my calendar - the anticipation is killing me!!!!

    I will post pics as soon as I receive it for everyone to view.

    Can't wait!!!!!!!

    Also, if any existing owners of the 5" deal bag can provide their personal experience/feedback or pics....it would be much appreciated.

    Diego.
