    OMG! I spotted this guy with this super cool leather bag on the street in Melbourne, Australia. The leather seemed to be thicker than saddleback leather, and the width is broader! Can anyone ID this? Thanks!

    Should have asked him!
    Aussies are pleasant enough.

    I wanted but it was the peak hour and the tram was freaking crowded.

    It reminds me of a vintage lawyers hard shell. I would also like to know who makes it.
    For future reference ...whenever I've had moments like this, I have approached and greeted with a smile, then asked directly right there on the spot where I could purchase a briefcase (bag, etc) like that. I've never experienced any resistance to this approach. You'd be suprised how the pride of ownership makes a person approachable and happy to tell you
    This gent is enjoying his clothes for sure..but his shoes are far too long for his feet. Even he may not know the bag manufacturer either. It was probably a hand me down or thrifted. Still, it has a very substantial look to it.

    Looks quite a bit like a Ghurka Counselor.

    Yes, I should have maned up to ask him! I am filled with regrets now, hopefully, someone here knows where it came from!

    How in the world do you know his shoes are too long for his feet?
