Quality briefcases… Where do I find ’em?

    I would like to buy a really good quality leather briefcase for work. I have been window shopping and searching online, but I can’t seem to find anything that I like. It’s also crazy expensive, so I’m hesitant to buy anything unless I see something that really catches my eye.

    I have a few suggestions, but it also depends on your budget.

    Personally, I bought mine from Betty Hemmings and I recommend you take a look as well. They have some gorgeous briefcases for the price range you are looking for.

    I’m willing to spend a few hundred dollars. I cannot afford to pay anything in the four-figure range… Even though having seen some of the products, I wish I could!

    I know what you are saying. There were some briefcases that were over $1,500 and I wanted them too! I wasn’t willing to go to that extreme, so I went for a Kazmok that was under $600. They had some beauties for over $2,000! My heart bled, but I had to bite my lip and be pragmatic.

    Here’s another question for everybody. What constitutes as ‘quality’ leather? If I’m going to spend this much money on a briefcase, I want to make sure I’m getting the genuine article with the best quality possible.

    One thing about quality leather is that as it ages, the leather product will look better as long as you look after it. Over the years, the leather will change. It will have this sheen to it, known as patina.

    Chances are, you’re going to use this briefcase for many years. If you care for the leather, then many years from now, your briefcase will still look terrific.

    Unfortunately, leather quality also means it will be more expensive, but at least you’ll get your money’s worth.

    Sure, the quality of the leather is an import factor, yadda yadda, but don’t forget the little details as well.

    While there’s no doubt that you must take care of the leather, how would you feel if the other things weren’t made with good quality? Imagine the zipper getting busted, the handle slowly coming off, buckles fading or not functioning properly, etc. Any of these problems will ruin a perfectly gorgeous briefcase, no matter how good the leather might be.

    Don’t just concentrate on the leather. Concentrate on the WHOLE thing. It can be easy to overlook the little parts that make up the briefcase,

    I take it that you work in a professional environment? A dark brown or black briefcase would be ideal. My advice would be to look for something durable. Some parts of the briefcase may take quite a bit of wear and tear. It has to survive that on a daily basis.
