I will now take the plunge and ordered my first bespoke briefcase. I will use this model (pic below) as a starting point. But I will make it smaller. now it is 43x32x19 cm, and since I already have a large brown briefcase and need a smaller black for more conservative events, I thought to make it 43x32x12 cm

So now I need your feedback. Do you think it is something that I have missed that are important to consider?

I thought about adding the ability to use a shoulder strap and a magazine pocket on the back. and i will also change the size of the front pockets so thay will be in harmony with the slimmer siluet.

When you nurture your briefcases what do you do? I thought about using Bick 4 leather conditioner because I'm afraid Saphir Renovatur is too strong, and will remove to mutch pigment of the briefcase?

Bumping this thread. It would have been fun to hear some opinions of what you think, 87 people have read but no comments.

Come on guys :slayer:

I personally don't like the design. For a conservative briefcase, it is best to not show any pockets in the front and straps. Leather wise, I only like British bridle, not only it is care-free, but stiffer.

I don't like the fastening method to start... and the pockets in the front as well.
