“I’ve been lugging my work laptop around in a Babila briefcase with a padded laptop pocket. It’s brown leather (well, they said “cognac”. It’s brown) and, I think, looks quite nice, especially in a more formal business setting.
One of the things I like about it is that it doesn’t shout to the world “HAY GUYZ IVE GOT A LAPTOP WOULD YOU LIKE TO MUG ME”, but rather “HAY GUYZ IVE GOT SOME SANDWICHES BUT THAT GUY OVER THERE HAS A LAPTOP THE ONE WITH THE DELL BAG YES HIM”.
I got it about 3 years ago from The Leather Briefcase Company here in the UK, and paid about £110 for it. It’s wearing quite well.”
MUCH APPRECIATED TESTIMONIAL.
This was posted [ ARS Open Forum ] in 2011, and I just stumbled across it on the net. It’s been a tough week so far, and this has been a big lift for office morale!
JUST FOUND ANOTHER – MANSBAG THIS TIME!
” We have had quite a lot of threads about this sort of stuff. As a result of one I was introduced to The Leather Briefcase Company.
I now have one of their man bag things but got one of these for my son at Christmas, and ended up getting myself one.
More or less in your budget and a real nice company to do business with.”
Our day has been much improved.
