$395. I would never usually look at the J. Peterman catalog, but someone made mention the other day, and now I'm a little worked up over this bag. Does anyone have any experiences, or typical SF advice on cheaper bags with better styling and quality, etc.? I poked around the classicluggage.com website a bit and didn't see anything similar. But that's not an easy website to work with. Someone in another thread mentioned that a lot of the Peterman stuff is made in China. Are there quality issues? Again, I'm not real familiar with the company, beyond the Seinfeld thing. --------------- Here, of course, is the all-important description: Discovered in a back room in London: a thrilling jumble of old diplomatic pouches, even older dispatch cases, very old courier’s packets and porte-monnaies, plus indeterminate bags, satchels, and sacks. Offered here: exacting replica of one of the most useful and interesting, a quintessentially English envoy’s case from the 1940s. A bit bigger than most briefcases today, to hold all the communiquÃs of Empire, plans for the divvying of Europe, etc. Isn’t that young Harold Macmillan headed for a meeting at the Foreign Office? 1940s Envoy’s Case (No. 1615). Distinguished-looking. Trim brass fittings and narrow straps contrast nicely with the generous size. Rigid, reinforced top squares off the shape. Two large compartments inside. Made of thick, vegetable-tanned cowhide that will age better than any of us. Dimension: 12-1/2" high x 18-1/2" wide x 3" deep at top; gusseted body expands to 6" at bottom (could double as an overnight). Color: Brown. Price: $395. -------------- So silly. Thanks in advance.
