    Is this company still in business? I've seen some beautiful horsehide briefcases made by M&W, but the website link I have is expired.

    Nope. They closed their doors several weeks ago.

    What is the alternative? I just saved up for a well-built Horween horsehide briefcase in their style, but I don't know of anything else in that price range.

    They most likely did not make them themselves, but used a leatherworker/ leatherworking subcontractor. I bet if we find out who it was they could still do it.
