We originally made this custom high-end briefcase for a very special costumer of ours, and we thought it was such a beautiful bag that why not make a couple of extra as a Limited Edition project? This product is made from high quality Herman Oak English Bridle, a full-grain leather that has a rigid temper, but will soften with use while always keeping its shape and structure — improved with a few new additions commonly requested by our customers to make this the ultimate bag. Same as our regular classic briefcase, it still features a divided gusset, faux-buckles, burnished and dyed edges, and a comfortable hand covering. But we also added wrap around straps and a durable custom ordered keylock.
Like the majority of bags in our messenger line, this offering is crafted from high-quality 7-8oz vegetable tanned full-grain leather, that has then been drum-dyed and finished with a special blend of oils and waxes (a supple finish, but the leather will absolutely maintain its shape overtime). Additionally, it’s extremely durable and intended for “lifetime” wear — the perfect everyday bag. And, with a two compartment interior, it offers more opportunities to keep your gear separated on the inside.
Simply put, if you put all of the features from all of our classic bags into one offering, this is it.
• Divided gusset: unlike the majority of our classic messenger bags (with buckles), this bag has a divided gusset. Aesthetically, we love the look on the outside, and functionally, it creates a two compartment interior.
• Features hidden tuck-locks behind the buckles for ease of use.
• Wrap around adjustable straps that allows the bag to stay slim when not packed full.
• 7-8oz Herman Oak, American tanned, English Bridle – A vegetable tanned full-grain leather with an extremely smooth finish on both the top and back sides, yet it will retain its durability and form even under years of heavy use.
• Solid nickel plated brass buckles and clips feature excellent build quality regarding both feel and thickness (with your choice of Nickel, Matte Nickel, or Brass finish).
• Outer dimensions: height: 12”, width: 16”, depth: 3.5” (collapsed).
• Inner dimensions: height: 11”, width: 15.25”, depth: compartment one: 2.25″ compartment two: 2.25” (full).
• 1 1/4″ wide removable shoulder strap.
• Inner Pockets: pocket one (7 x 6″), pocket two (4.5″ x 6″), one card holder, two pen holders.
• Outer Pocket: 16 x 9″.
• For reference, this bag comfortably fits a 15″ MacBook Pro (which has an actual width of 14.35″).
