This limited-edition leather briefcase by Filson of Seattle captures the essence of the leathersmith’s timeless art to perfection.
There’s something about leather, isn’t there? We can sense you nodding already. Whether it’s the plush leather of a sports car seat, the baby-soft finish on a fine-grain wallet, or the aged patina on your favourite hold all, leather tells a story, of craftsmanship, of origin, or a journey.
If you’re looking to begin such a journey, you might want to look towards Seattle, where Filson has created a collection of eye-catching and life-weathering leather goods for red-blooded lads. We’re especially enamoured with the workshop hand-tooled weatherproof leather briefcase.
One of the company’s limited-edition releases, this over-the-shoulder wonder represents hours of painstaking work, including hand-tooled designs on the flap drawn from the Sheridan style. Vegetable-tanned Sierra brown leather by Pennsylvania’s Wicket & Craig, who have 153 years under their belt, is treated to resist the elements like Trump resists an audit, with each case boasting bridge leather handles, a removable shoulder strap, and the capacity for an up-to 15-inch laptop.
With each piece offering subtle variations thanks to its bespoke nature, you’ll be content in the knowledge that while you channel your inner cowboy, no one’s sporting the same leather as you.
After all, leather fiends can get a little touchy.
