i got this for my husband for our third annivarsary, leather being the theme. he had this old worn briefcase and told me never to buy him another one, because he would not use it. well i got it anyway, and it was hard to pick one..there are thousands of briefcases to choose from. well he opened it, took all the stuffing out, and i looked at him and new he liked it. i said well are you going to use it, yes he said. its professional, but not too old man looking. after a few weeks, one of the dowels did unscrew, but it just needed to be tightened. we tightened all of them just to be sure.
I am pleased with this briefcase. If is functional and looks good (I got brown and it is the exact same color as on this website). The leather is thick and appears to be good quality. However, I wouldn't call this a hidden gem or the deal of the decade that some other reviewers are calling it. It is what it is: a good lucking, all leather no-name briefcase at a reasonable price. There are a few things I don't like so much that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. Chiefly the leather shoulder pad on the strap is the same smooth leather as the case so it is very slippery. Also, the buckles have spring snap-clasps underneath that are a little difficult to open and close... they are sticky. I would have preffered magnets. Also, the third section of the compartment is hard to access, it's kind of squeezed out by the main compartment. All these things are minor, IMO and I would still recommend the briefcase to a friend. There are a couple other things that I don't like but knew going in, so I won't deduct points for, but other buyers should know. It is shorter than most other briefcases, but it's as advertised, 15". However, the inside is much shorter (because the compartment is concave at the ends) and can't hold legal sized papers without bending. Also, there is a lip over the back pocket zipper that makes it hard to put a magazine or anything larger than a slip of paper in. Also, the back pocket is too small, it should be as long as the case. But all in all, this fits the bill for what I wanted, a nice looking leather briefcase that is rigid across the top and the shoulder staps don't attach the the top of the flap (so that I can open it while it is till on my shoulder).
I am thrilled with the high quality of this briefcase. I noticed a manufacturing flaw upon receipt of my new briefcase. I phoned the manufacturer and described the flaw to them. They sent me a replacement briefcase immediately! They also sent a prepaid UPS pick up for the defective case. What great service and what a quality manufacturer. I'M thrilled with my experience.
I purchased this briefcase for a birthday present for my husband. He had mentioned he would like one the same color leather as our furniture. Searched many other sites, then came to Overstock and found this beautiful case. The day it arrived he grabbed it and opened before I got home from work. He came running out when I arrived to tell me he could not have picked a more perfect and beautiful briefcase for himself. It is a beautiful, rich color and was very close to what was shown in the picture. Matches our furniture color well. The quality of the bag for the money I thought was exceptional. Everything I have ever purchased from Overstocks has been of good quality and better than I hoped for. Will be shopping again!!
