Gently used, gorgeous contemporary office bag/soft briefcase by Colin's from the "By My Side" collection, as designed by Alfredo Haberli.

All of the marketing stuff, including dimensions can be found here: http://charlesandmarie.com/een/colins-office-bag

This bag is wonderful, but just isn't my style any longer. It is in great shape, no rips, tears, serious scuffs or cracking in the phenomenal leather. I literally just cleaned and conditioned with Saphir. It is big enough to carry a 17" MacBook Pro, but perfectly suited to anything smaller as the laptop holder inside the bag is totally adjustable. Great outside pockets for phone (iPhone fits perfectly in the front small pocket), keys, wallet and the large bag zippered pocket is great for everything else you might want quick access to.

There is a small white mark on the bag, which I think can be taken care of by any responsible leather specialist (I don't want to do anything to mess the bag up by trying to clean that mark any more aggressively than some Renovateur).

There are also some spots on the inside of the bag, but they come from ink and such-nothing gross or that would be problematic.

In addition to the fact that this just isn't really my style any longer, this has to go due to the fact that I now occupy more closet space than my wife. It is a literal steal at $65.00 OBO shipped CONUS, retail is about $515.00 (425 euro) without shipping. I have never, ever seen anyone else with one of these, even in NYC.

Paypal preferred.
