1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Now also available on eBay at auction with no reserve. But buy here for less than the eBay BIN.

    For sale is a rarely seen (especially on the secondary market), new Brooks Brothers soft briefcase made out of Horween Shell Cordovan. It is the same briefcase that can be found here on BB's website, although it is no longer available. Retail price was $4000 plus tax.

    Needless to say, this is incredible. The color is #8 shell cordovan made by Horween. Suede lining. Brass hardware. Front flap with double buckle closure. 15½" x 12½" x 3". This has never been used, although there are marks from shop wear, etc. This certainly could be the last soft briefcase you ever own.

    Serious inquiries only, please. If you search the B&S history, you will see that I once sold the hard shell cordovan briefcase by BB. Now I have the soft briefcase for sale. This is almost a once in a life-time opportunity for a bag that is no longer being made.

    My price is $1299 shipped CONUS including insurance. (I'll consider serious offers as well). I will ship internationally at cost, which must include insurance. Please PM with all questions. Enjoy the pictures (which don't do this bag justice, by the way).

    Photos: (Note that the oval shape on the front flap is a slight imprint from the inner Brooks Brothers label, which I've included a picture of. The imprint is visible only in certain lightings and from certain angles, because it is a soft-shell briefcase.)

    One more drop -- this thing will be sold either here or on eBay in my auction (see link in my listing; auction ends Sunday), but buy here and save a little off of the BIN. If you want to send me an offer here, too, that's fine . . .
