    CLASSIC VINTAGE LAWYER'S BRIEFCASE

    [​IMG]

    Made in the USA from Buff Cowhide

    A very good friend of mine is one of the top Constitutional attorneys in the United States, with a US Supreme Court win under his belt. He uses a case just like this, both for trial appearances and when he's travelling for one or two days.

    I asked him why he doesn't use a (frankly) better case, such as a Swaine, Adeney, Brigg. His response was simple: Vintage cases like this one are just far cooler, and when you're arguing a case in, say, Texas, you don't want the judge to see you as "the DC attorney with the $1,000 English attache case". You want her to see you as "the public interest lawyer with the good ol' American cowhide briefcase just like Daddy used to have".

    So, if you'd like to look like a real Constitutional attorney, or a college professor (in a real subject, like Philosophy, or History), or just someone who appreciates good ol' fashioned American briefcases, this is for you!

    Made from Genuine Deep Buff Cowhide (It says so right on the label!) this likely dates from the 1960s. It has contrasting top stitching, a brass lock, three interior compartments, and brass protectors on the base. It hasn't been babied, and so it has the usual scuffs and patina and minor surface wrinkles of a properly used vintage briefcase. It's in Very Good condition, and a bargain at

    just $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Length: 18
    Height: 14
    Width at base: 6

    FANTASTIC Classic Leather Satchel/Briefcase!

    [​IMG]

    Made in the USA.

    Weighing in at just under 6lbs, this is a seriously heavy and sturdy piece of equipment. Constructed as a classic flap-over briefcase secured by a (fully functional) brass combination lockthis has both a leather carrying handle and a loeather shoulder-strap which can be removed. This features two main compartments and a slightly lower front compartment, all under the main flap. The back compartment has a full-length zip pocket on the back, while the front compartment features three interior pockets.

    Made in the USA by Jack Georges, this is a very serious satchel indeed! It has the usual patina from wear, with the usual surface scuffing and some wear through to the frame on the lower edges. This is unlikely to affect this piece's performance for at least another decade or so, although you might like to have your local cobbler patch it so you won't need to worry about it for the next thirty years.

    In Very Good condition, this is a bargain at just $49, or offer, shipped in the USA--and bear in mind that this is almost 6lbs, of American leather, so shipping won't be cheap!

    Aftermarket matching black leather luggage tag from Land's End is included.

    Length: 17
    Height: 13 1/2
    Width at base: 6
