This is my new Filson Original Briefcase model in navy. I picked navy for the versatility of the colour, the fact it won't show dirt as easily, and may go better with suits since I'll be using it for business. My first pick was the dark brown, but seeing the navy in person made me change my mind. The fabric is also a few oz. lighter than the tan. I've loaded it up with a few books and I'm breaking in the shoulder strap.
