    Really interesting post Simon and really good before and after photos. This mirrors exactly our experience with Sedgwick London Tan as well. The handle of the case in particular has gone a lovely colour and my experience is thats what the rest of the case will do with time - thats the terminal colour London Tan will go. There are a number of colours that try to mimic aged London Tan, none are as good as the real thing. Has anyone ever worked out the tannery SAB do use? Would be very interesting to know, as Simon says it certainly is Sedgwicks Charlie

    Yep, that is me. Patrick Booth was a silly name I gave myself a long time ago as kind of a joke. I must live with it now.

    I agree on the calfskin as well.

    My Frank Clegg bag arrived and I like it a lot. The color is chocolate brown. Here's a quick pic:

    Hello everyone, and what an awesome thread. I have been lurking for a week now going through all of the cases posted here.

    I'm in my last year of law school, and will begin a summer clerkship for a Judge back home before graduating. I want to move from the backpack world and into the briefcase lifestyle that I obviously should be doing. And I have decided that there are just too many choices out there.

    Do you posters here recommend any cases for the following use:

    -Laptop and charger/mouse - I need a case with a separate compartment so as to avoid issues/damage
    -pockets/pen holders. I don't need a whole side of the bag, but some briefcases I have found have nothing in them, just an open bag.

    I'm sure many of you are in the legal/business world, so any advice on stores or places to shop and brands or designs would be greatly appreciated.

    Price range: I'm not sure yet. I know the cost can reach crazy numbers so Under a 1,000, but wouldn't mind buying two briefcases for much less than one expensive one.

    I have two. I've had the Smythson case for almost six years. I just recently purchased the Moynat Limousine after a long search.

    Agjiffy - that Moynat is stunning! I imagine it will develop a lovely patina with time.

    Seems the link does not take you to the page for one reason, but the case I referenced is their "lawyers briefcase".
