Choosing the leather for your briefcase
If you are looking for leather briefcases with style and a quality finish, then choosing the leather will be an important part of the equation. Perhaps opting for the finest quality full grain American cowhide leather will appeal to the business outfit. The quality of the leather so often accounts for the overall expectation of the briefcase. A slide away tab closure with patented locking systems and a stay open frame design are some features included in most high quality cases.
The interior is often made durable and refined with a double gusset design. This is of course additional to the standard file and folder pockets, accordion style expanding sleeves and stationary, cell phone and PDA holders. The exterior might include a literature slip for the daily news or perhaps your latest read and finished with a combination lock that includes brass hardware. Colors are dependant upon availability usually and on which colors are set to certain designs.
Are you a learned, well respected businessman that needs an element of sophistication from your business accessories, or perhaps you just want something a little retrospective? Then why not choose a high quality fine leather with antique appeal. With a zip open top, slim line shape, and yet the latest modern interior advances with room for cell phones, palm tops, pens and the glasses carrier. Equipped with a removable shoulder strap and two front buckles, the hardware can be finished with antique silver for a classic look.
Rugged leather briefcases are becoming more and more popular with easy going businessmen that require something a little more flexible. Trendy rugged briefcases come in a few designs but most common are the oil tanned antique leather, suede with leather trim and the wax type canvas cases with again additional leather trim. These briefcases feature a more simple design with the one large inside section. The briefcase includes the interior pockets for cell phones and stationary but the larger central section offers more room for computer power cords or cell phone chargers and alike. It is designed for comfort so all handles, straps and adjustable fittings are well padded and the exterior usually fronts a couple of gusseted pockets. Quick release mechanisms for the front buckles are convenient and are well worth the search.
The soft leather briefcases have the advantage of being a little more flexible and so a deluxe flap-over briefcase is a versatile design that suits such a material. It will expand from around 4 inches to as much as 9-10 inches to hold a very large quantity of paperwork and perhaps a laptop. Compartments for a laptop are well padded and accommodate a few disks too.
