    Just got mine Honen 450 from JP Marcellino. I must say it's already one of my favorite bags! Amazing leather and work on it.
    After 50 pms with JPM this is what I got. He will pretty much do whatever you ask for, perfect service. And the prices well... he sould take more if you ask me.

    http://jpmarcellino.com/m/index.php/modern-business-bags/honen-modern-business-bag/honen-450.html

    Honen 450 in London Tan slow vegetable tanned bridle leather, full grain drum dyed deep color and semi thick leather but light weight at around 4 pounds. Tight flat hand stitched handle with permanent solid brass screws keeping the bag secured in your hand. Heat sealed, wood and hand polished edges. Hand saddle stitched seams, swiss made Amiet key lock. Smooth hand conditioned natural interior, adjustable strap with shoulder pad and solid brass trim. He also gives you lifetime warranty.

    Beautiful work, and I hope you enjoy it. I'm looking to buy something soon (Next couple of weeks actually). I don't want to have a custom bag made until I'm sure of what I want in or on it.

    But that looks like the way to go when I do decide to get it.

    Nice stuff Hampton!
    Do you have pictures of the inside?
    I already have a Henry Tomkins briefcase Light, which is of similar size and design, but when seeing this I'm starting to feel that it wouldn't hurt to own another briedcase:D

    I think other manufacturers grain the leather themselves by rolling a skateboard over the leather. :)

    you are kidding right? ive never been that interested in grain or milled leather so i haven't thought much on it but it would seem to me that a rolling process is part of it or maybe tumbling in a dryer.
