I looked at so many briefcases online! I found I had exquisite taste, as most of my preferences were $300+. I wanted a special xmas gift for my SUPER particular too-cool boyfriend, whose very concientious about dressing the part for his career. I was terrified that I'd pick out one he wouldn't like, and thought this one is too inexpensive to be a really top-notch briefcase. But ultimately I thought it was a great piece, so I chose it. The more he carried it (and consequently, the more compliments he got on it), the better he liked it. I mean, it became a major topic of conversation that opened up the dialog at many of his briefings! He gets regular comments on how great it is and questions about where he got it. I asked him, "Did you tell him he can get one from an awesome girlfriend?" He answered, "You know it!" He's stoked with it and I'm stoked that he's stoked! Yes the leather's nice, yes the hardware's nice (though he would have chosen bronze), yes it's spacious and it stands up on its own and it stays wide open until you shut it. The lock is a little hinky, but DEFinitely not a deal-breaker. TOTally recommend it.
I purchased this bag for my boyfriend for his birthday. I spent hours and hours shopping for the right bag that looked tasteful, professional and polished. I was amazed with the quality of this bag and the look. The Cognac offers a rich look. He has received so many compliments and family members thought I spent at least $500! The bag is great for your everyday paperwork and any professional male in any career. We would not suggest carrying a laptop in it, all though, a light weight smaller laptop would probably be okay. His lap top is 8-10 lbs and this bag could not withstand that type of weight. Comes with a comfortable shoulder strap that can be removed. Also comes with a dust bag as well. You will not be dissappointed should you decide to purchase this bag.
This case was purchased for a new Business graduate from USC who is targeting a career in the big five accounting firms. This student/graduate will appreciate the outstanding quality of an attache case. I have used them for 40 years with great appreciation and success.
