I don’t know what it is about vintage leather briefcases that make them so desirable. Maybe because it looks like it has been a main part of someones life story. Maybe because it is subtle and full of character. Maybe because it just looks cool.
Now don’t get me wrong, a Prada or Gucci briefcase is nice too (and pretty expensive). I just think that having a vintage leather briefcase is timeless and shows that you aren’t trying too hard. Add in a sick timepiece and some killer shoes and I think you’ve got a classic style formula that works (cool = subtlety + vintage + not trying too hard).
For those that love the look but don’t like the age – check out the Andrew Marc leather briefcases below from bluefly.com. If you’ve got a little more coin, definitely check out Saddleback Leather Company.
