Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Piccadilly Case - handmade leather briefcase/satchel/messenger bag (Luggage)
Very well made; the outer leather is sewn to an inner leather to create a thick cover. You can see the two qualities in the zipped pocket section of the front pouch. Much more durable in look than another briefcase I purchased some years ago which has already begun to lose the outer surface. It is not hide - there are some cases like that but they will cost more, cheapest I have seen is £145 but for my needs this is more than adequate. If the stitching goes then that is repairable so baring accidents I do not see why this should not last 20 years.
It is replacing a 27 year old hide case which has cracked badly in places, and if it lasts that long I would be delighted.
Note: does up on buckles only - there are no press fittings or other ironmongery.
It takes an A4 document folder but not foolscap. So about a centimetre smaller than some but I very much like the natural look of what is obviously real leather.
