    I started searching for a nice briefcase/laptop bag and think I have settled on the Filson No. 257--Large Briefcase. Does anyone have comments on the right color? I am leaning toward the brown color instead of the tan or green, mainly to avoid spotting and because I'm just not a big fan of green.

    As I was searching for the briefcase, the Filson Pullman (No. 243) also caught my eye, and I am thinking about purchasing one of these as well. The Pullman doesn't come in brown, only green and tan. I prefer the tan.

    If I purhcased both of these, do you think it would be unwise to have each in different colors? Any comments on colors and the bags in general would be welcome. Thanks!

    Actually I have both of these, the pullman in tan and the briefcase in brown. Love 'em!

    I seldom use them together but even if I did I see no problem with mixing colors.
    The tan does get dirty but it still looks good.

    Don't forget to shop at Crane's! (see affiliate thread for discounts...)

    I have the large briefcase in brown and like it much more then the tan version (which I had) and the green (which I did not own). One word of warning - the dark brown, while a rich brown color when new, does seem to fade somewhat. My bag is about 6-8 months old and has faded - doesn't look bad, contributes to patina that these bags get, I suppose.

    Could someone post a picture of the briefcase in brown? I'm trying to decide between tan and brown as well, and I'm only seeing pictures of the tan bag on SF. Thanks!
