I gave my husband an early present - the Lotuff Mens English Leather Briefcase, hand made in New England.
We are still awestruck by both its understated beauty and quality - with its vegetable tanned leather, solid brass hardware, and the YKK zipper. It feels as good as it looks.
|There are no company icons on our Lotuff bags, only our monograms. This seems even more appreciated in an environment where other luxury brands use giant logos (which themselves are adorned with lawyer approved "trademarked" symbols) on their expensive products, often to distract from low quality.|
|The center, zippered pocket is perfectly sized for a tablet.|
|I have a thing for good hardware.|
|A great example of the design is the single, long strip of leather, shown here, that fluidly connects handle, carrying straps, and bands.|
|The handle is substantial and feels good in hand.|

"Good heavens, isn't this our station?" the stout man suddenly cried, and the next instant he went flying past Mr. Willoughby's out-stretched feet, briefcase in hand, overcoat flapping over his arm, companion in tow.
