"It's A Beauty..."
The Grandfather Collection was created from a look back at the old ways when a man’s word was his bond, and a handshake meant something. It is said that the contents of a man’s briefcase can tell you everything about him. It was also a time when you shop for something, you knew it was quality craftsmanship. We set out to fulfill those same expectations in this 13” Hard Leather Case. From the vintage style look to the professional craftsmanship, we created the best hard-sided case.
The Best Hard Leather Briefcase
This leather case is made of top-quality materials. The Grandfather Hard Case exterior and interior are tough and durable, yet it has a soft, smooth feel. The interior is lined with a super strong pigskin that protects your belongings. The stitching is strong and precise, and the hardware is heavy-duty. This leather case was made to last a lifetime and includes a 100-year warranty.
Design of this Hard Leather Briefcase
This leather case is excessively over-engineered, with no breakable parts like snaps, zippers, or magnets. The stitching is purposeful, with only 5 stitches per inch, so there’s more leather between the needle holes and fewer holes to start a tear. Stress points are reinforced with steel or copper rivets. The hinge is made entirely of leather - it will never rust or break. You can use the sturdy handle to carry it when you’re on your daily commute, or you have the option to wear it on your shoulder or crossbody.

Two Large Interior Pockets
This leather case has two roomy interior pockets that can hold things such as chargers, USB power hubs, thumb drives, and even that extra phone you don’t like to answer.
Carried by the Handle or Adjustable Shoulder Strap
You have options on how you want to carry our leather briefcases. There is a leather handle that looks very elegant, but we didn’t stop there. We also included a removable shoulder strap on this case. This is also an adjustable shoulder strap, so you can make it the perfect length for you.
Materials Used To Make This Full Grain Leather Briefcase
From the best leather we can get, full grain leather, ultra-tough pigskin lining, marine-grade polyester thread, and 316 stainless steel hardware, this small briefcase is made with only the best materials available. We want you to feel secure that this will be the last briefcase you ever buy, one that will last decades, so we used the best materials.
Full Grain Leather
We only use full-grain leather, which is the strongest and most resistant cow leather you can find. It’s called “full-grain” because none of the leather is shaved off. The full toughest top layer is still there. That’s why it’s so thick and strong. See, those cheap genuine leather briefcases that you find at the department store are just making a sale to the uneducated. Most people do not know genuine leather is leather that has had the top part shaved off. Like a home without shingles, it will not last. God knew precisely what he was doing when he created an outer layer of skin, the epidermis. That is what protects us, as well as animals.
Genuine Leather is Missing The Best Part
Like us, cattle can get scars from bug bites, branding, and scratches from trying to get to the much greener grass on the other side of the barbed wire. So while other companies will shave that off to make more profit and call it genuine leather, we just cut around it. That is why we can use the term full grain leather. We keep the protective layer on, making it extra elegant and lasting forever.
Pigskin Lined Briefcase
As tough as full grain leather is, pigskin is even tougher. So the inside is lined with pigskin, instead of being lined with some brittle fabric with flowers on it that rips and tears with minimal use. These are things other briefcase makers typically will not do, but we are in the business of creating functional works of art, and that is what this is. From the finest material to the best design in our classic vintage style briefcases, we want you to be excited to take this case with you just to show everyone.
Serious Thread To Hold Together This Vintage Briefcase
Everything is sewn together with the strongest thread we can get, marine-grade polyester. It’s the same stuff sailmakers use on boat sails, and those things take a beating from high winds every time they’re used. It’s much better than using the typical nylon thread because it never decomposes, so it’ll hold the case together forever.
Only The Best Hardware In This High Quality Leather Briefcase
We only use 316 stainless steel, so it will never rust, giving the leather case a great look and even more durability. This is a medical grade alloy. It is also used when salt water is involved because it will never corrode. That is how confident we are in the materials that we use.
A Hard Leather Briefcase Made By Skilled Craftsman
This vintage style hard leather briefcase is not slapped together with machines overseas. This was handmade by skilled craftsmen who have been making leather goods for years. The process takes a lot of time, but it’s worth it when you see the final product. From start to finish, this briefcase is a work of art.
More than an Attaché Case
Whether you are a doctor, lawyer, or collector of fine leather designs, this hard leather briefcase is for you. You don’t have to use it as an attaché case for important files and documents, even though it is perfectly suitable for that. You can use it for outdoor gear, or your stock of pens and a calculator. Feel free to use it however you like.
