    Hello,
    This briefcase is an Hermès Etrivière II and in Europe costs 3700 euro.
    It has the classic sellier three row hand stitch and buckle.

    Some more pics of the Henry Tomkins Essential briefcase.

    In the last photo it is loaded with my 13 inch MacBook Pro inside a CaseLogic padded case, some legal pads in a folder, and a power cord. The divider has pen and credit card holders, as well as a general purpose pocket. Overall I'm very pleased with the bag. It is very sturdy, the leather is thick, and it seems well constructed. One small issue is that you can see the grain and/or marks on the hide that still lightly show after the tanning process (almost like stretch marks on skin). You might see in the closeups what I'm talking about. This doesn't bother me but someone else might not appreciate it.

    I have the same, in a darker brown, but without the strap. Lovely briefcase, insane value for an 'entry level' briefcase.

    ^^Nice. Could any of you please share some closeups of the stitching on the Henry Tomkins? It looks like they are a great value for the money.

    Thank you so much for this! Even if I kind of hoped you put an extra zero by mistake on the price :D

    Great bags.

    Anyone know an estimate price in the UK?

    I hate to think.

    The smaller bag, the Berluti "Deux Jours" (the one in the lower photo with two zips), was selling for GBP1200 or so a few years back, so I'd bet it costs substantially more now.

    Yes, very nice. Did you tear down the fence behind you?

    Perhaps.... : ) Not really; it's the neighbors fence and it needs serious help.
