I bought this briefcase as a gift. I compared this one to many others and this one was the best quality for the price. I gave it to a minister and he has other briefcases but he said this McKlein model was better quality than his others. He couldn't say enough about the leather and space of this briefcase. Now this is the only one he carries! Buy this and you'll be glad that you did. It's well made and looks even more expensive once you receive it.
I originally ordered a black briefcase and a brown one was sent to me which they quickly replaced. I was very impressed with my first observation of the case but it didn't take long to see how quickly these are assembled. The hardware is also of a lesser quality. I use it almost daily and will report how it holds up. I also noticed evidence of glue in the seams, although not terribly obvious, it is there. I would say it is not worth the full price that is shown and not much more than the discounted price I gave for it here. If I ask myself if I would but this again, my answer would be that I will search out another one before placing a second order for this.
