Beautiful leather briefcase/shoulder bag!
on 19 January 2012
This is a beautifully crafted and robust leather briefcase. Stunning in its simplicity, and logically constructed, with two large main compartments and two front pockets. It's amazing how many other briefcase-type bags are unintuitively laid out; not the case (bah-dum-bum-tshhh) with this one! The inner sections are sturdy but not overly padded, allowing you to rest easy knowing your stuff is safe while not having to compromise on space.
I went for the chestnut colour, which is vintage-esque and has a slight sheen to it. Perfect size too - will fit A4 folders and/or laptop, and the fact that there are two compartments means that you can store your sandwiches and banana on one side without them getting squashed.
Dare I say, it's a unisex item - I (female) bought it for a new job, and it screams "TAKE ME SERIOUSLY!!" but not "GIVE ME A WIDE BERTH!!". It's elegant, but nevertheless still casual enough not to scream "STEAL ME!!".
And last but not least, it seems to weigh considerably less than some of its (more expensive) rivals; not to mention being half the price. Quite simply: an all-round great buy.
