When I was a young kid, I was very fascinated with briefcases and I remember playing with them every chance I got. I would pack my notepad, my pens (because writing with pens is definitely more grown up than writing with pencils), my money in the leather briefcases lying around the house. Then I would pretend to buy soda just as if I was on a coffee break after an important business deal (no, I didn’t know what martinis were back then). Because when I was young, I thought going to work was so cool and I remember wishing for the day to come where I could go out and work – while having my own briefcase. Now, I know better about that going to work portion and I take it back. But I still would like to have my own briefcase especially this one.
I am digging the clean lines and aesthetic of this piece from Costume National. The grey calf leather will go splendidly with your work wardrobe and will last you seasons after seasons. The subtle detail compliments the overall sleek vibe of this briefcase. The overall tonal stitching makes for classic detail while the simple clasp and lock speaks volume without needing to try very hard.
The external side zip pockets makes for easy access and storage for your daily essentials when on the go while the internal ID slot lets you put your stamp and mark lest someone covets and takes off with it. And I can certainly see why someone would want to do that!
