    Looking for a soft leather briefcase with zipper enclosure and shoulder strap. Any suggestions? 200-300$ mark.

    That might be difficult for 300 $. Depends on what you want though. If you want it to be hand stitched and with a good leather it will be more expensive. The leather alone will amount to 100 $ for the bag.

    This Tiger of Sweden bag costs $400, but its quality is not very good plus everyone has it, and I don't want to purchase it because of this. I am looking for a similar bag (and detachable shoulder strop), in better quality. Suggestions? The closest I have found is this from Suitsupply.

    I really liked this soft leather briefcase from Coach, it's going for around $200 on ebay, I think it's worth that? I've heard people talking about Coach briefcases not being worth its money, but they were talking about 400-500$- ish briefcases, and this has a much nicer price, and the leather seems very nice based on pictures.

    My suggestion for the office is no strap. I bought a saddle bag type in lieu of a briefcase 20 years ago and love it. Not a fan of zippers either.

    Hi Rankiz

    May we recommend the RockDove Soft Briefcase?

    Its a full grain, vegetable tanned leather soft briefcase with Riri brand zips. The briefcase also has several personalisation options where you can choose the exterior, interior and hardware colours, modules to best suit your requirements as well as have your name or initials embossed on it.

    We are live now on Indiegogo, where our early bird cases are still available for $185 (post campaign retail value $350).

    Have a look. We hope it matches what you are looking for.

    Cheers!
