I like this case, however it was covered with a plastic film that had been applied to the case before all the hardward was attached. When removing the plastic film it sticks underneath the hardware on the case, like the handles and the locks. So I have little pieces of plastic fiel hanging out of all of those harware areas that are too small to remove. Looks tacky.
I purchased this briefcase in black a few weeks ago. Here are a few notes regarding my experience with the case: 1. The only construction issue I have is that the stitching on the leather pull tab located on top of the panel with the combination lock has come undone. The tab is still there but 1/2 of the stitching is lose. You cannot see it in the photos as it is covered by the flap. It is an easy fix, but should not have come undone after less than a month of daily use at the office and courthouse(s). 2. Combination lock on the black case (which I purchased) looks different from the Overstock photos. Not a deal breaker. The lock seems pointless as it would only take 10 tries for someone to unlock the case. 3. Lightweight - I had a McKlein Harrison briefcase, it was heavy compared to this case. 4. Interior - adequate pockets for your phone, slots for cards, 2 pens and another pocket for other items. The central divider has a zipper enclosure. There is no padding so a laptop would need to be put in a sleeve before being placed inside. The lining is basic nylon and not as "soft" as the lining found in other bags. Again, not a deal breaker for me. 5. Leather quality - the leather smelled great. The label says the leather is tanned in the US then shipped to China for assembly. The leather is not shiny, as one commenter wrote, it does appear to be worn and not brand new (not a deal breaker for me). If you want polished leather bags - look at a McKlein ($$) or Bosco ($$$). 6. Construction quality - besides what I mentioned in number 1, there are no other issues I have with the case. The stitching is even, no weird smells or stains, and the clasps and handles work as they should. 7. Bag stays open - unlike the McKlein Harrison - the hinges on the bag do stay open. This makes it easy to access the bag without having to continue opening and closing it. 8. Shipping and packaging - shipping was quick and the item is sent from California. The bag comes in a cloth bag inside a plastic bag. Overall - I am satisfied with the price, less than $$$ and the professional appearance.
I have been wearing this product since the late 80's. have always loved the fit and support. Would love to see a bigger choice of colors, such as navy and red. Over the years as my body changed with age, I noticed the fit was still there, but the elastic straps stretch out faster and the side panels held me in for only about 3 months and then offer less support over time and I wash on gentle cycle and line dry all the time. I have also had an issue with the plastic they use now instead of wire snapping. It happened to 3 bras in the past 2 years. But I still love the bra for the look coverage and comfort I just wish it would hold up longer.
Best purchase I made, love it. Plenty of room for everything, and everything in one place. Plastic around the case was easy to remove. My sister liked it and is going to get one next.
