    show stopper

    This is briefcase is stunning, the craftsmanship is top notch and the leather quality is as advertised. I looked at several top brands with leather offerings, I'm glad i found this brand, can't wait to add a few more to my collection.

    Professional/ perfect size

    Absolutely love this bag. I had some questions about sizing and differences between the founder and the counselor and the staff answered all of my questions within hours of my emails. The bag looks stunning and elegant, I can honestly say the pictures do not do justice to how good these bags look. Sizing: I work as an attorney and often have to carry multiple files to and from court daily. The founder easily fits my laptop, charger, and files for the day. I like the size because it is easily manageable without being TOO big. I still want the counselor, but based on the sizing of the Founder believe it will be much wider, probably able to fit multiple binders instead of folders. Love the bag, love the staff. Keep up the good work!

    Impressive Quality

    I've had this bag for over 2 years now and use it daily for work. It still looks as good as the day I bought it and the materials have held up nicely. It's the perfect size for work essentials and I've received several compliments. Highly recommend!

    THE leather briefcase

    This bag looks even better in person. It is top quality and looks very professional. And the brief case surprisingly fits a lot, even though it’s the skinnier version. I’m happy I picked this model, due to having a 16inch MacBook .

    Better than expected

    Well worth the wait of 2 months for shipping (all the way to Singapore). Quality is excellent. The only complaint is the interior buckle for laptop which seems a little difficult to clip on and thus negating its usefulness. This, however, does not distract from the fact that it is extremely well made and I would recommend without hesitation.
