Amazing Bag

I’d always wanted a hard-sided briefcase, and this has been a perfect fit! I use the Barrister’s Briefcase when I need to lug more around during the day, but the 15” is my go to and has held up well in the first few weeks I’ve had it.

An instant classic!

This case represents absolute class and old world master craftsmanship. When I opened the box, I was in awe of the quality. Every stitch is perfect and every contact between the lid and case is tight and exact. This case will definitely stand the test of time and one day they’ll say, “they don’t make them like this anymore.”

The 15” Grandfather Briefcase is a hard leather briefcase that is designed to be as functional inside as possible, with a left side pocket that is large enough to fit a 16" MacBook Pro charger, and a right side pocket that is smaller for storing wallets, keys, business cards, etc. It also has two pen sleeves above each pocket that will fit an Apple Pencil.

Design of this Hard Sided Leather Briefcase

The 18" Grandfather Briefcase was designed to resemble the old classic briefcases our grandfathers would have carried. Back in the old days, a man would buy a hardside briefcase and know it would last his entire life. Now you can have that same security with a hard sided briefcase that is just as strong and durable. This leather briefcase is like they used to make them, but better.

Grandfather Hard Briefcase Materials

We used all the best materials we could find to make this the best hard sided leather briefcase. From the best leather you can get, full grain leather, to the really strong thread and lining, we spared no expense in making sure this briefcase will last a lifetime.

Full Grain Leather

We only use the toughest leather we can find on our leather bags, and this briefcase is no different. It’s genuine full-grain leather, which means the top layer is still there. The top layer is the strongest layer on the hide and acts the same as shingles on a house.

The best quality leather briefcase is full grain and 100% authentic. This type of leather is extremely tough and resilient, showing character through scars, brands, and other markings. It also features a pigskin lining on the inside to protect your contents from damage, as well as strong marine grade polyester thread that won't weaken over time.

Pigskin Lining in our Large Leather Briefcase

The entire inside is lined with pigskin; believe it or not, pigskin is even stronger than cow skin. Plus, it’s soft and smooth, so whatever you put inside of it will be protected.

Stitching in this Hardside Briefcase

We take no shortcuts when it comes to sewing everything together on this leather briefcase. We sew using only 5 stitches per inch. Doing this reduces the number of holes in the leather and the potential for a tear.

The best quality leather is full grain, which shows character and is used in our solid leather briefcase.

Really Strong Thread

The thread we use is a really strong UV-resistant polyester. It’s the same stuff they use to make parachutes and ship sails. If it can hold up to those conditions, we are confident it will hold this briefcase together for at least 100 years.

Hardware That Your Life Can Depend On

All of our hardware is custom surgical grade 316 stainless steel. It is what you want to use if your life depended on it. This particular alloy

The Functionality of the Large Leather Briefcase

The 18” Grandfather Briefcase can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Everyday carry into the office, a lawyer's briefcase, or a way to have strangers stare at you and wonder where you got your hardside briefcase.

Interior of the Large Hard Sided Briefcase

This large hard sided leather briefcase has ample room in the main compartment. You can fit a large laptop or a few smaller laptops. You can even fit a million dollars if that is what you need to do. If a leather briefcase was made to hold $1,000,000, this would be it. You might even purchase a pair of handcuffs to cuff the briefcase to your wrist and carry it around the airport or a family reunion. Keep them guessing.

The solid leather briefcase hardware is designed to last, with 316 Stainless Steel clasps that can hold a lot of weight. It also includes a removable and adjustable shoulder strap for comfort.

Two Large Pockets Inside The Large Briefcase

There are also two large pockets inside the briefcase. This can fit laptop chargers and charger cords, thumb drives with important documents or sensitive content, ammo, knives, your passport, or anything else you might need quick access to.

A Briefcase For Men

This is a gentleman's briefcase. This leather design means business. When you walk around carrying it, you will hear them talk, saying such good things about you, such admiration. Remember, with great admiration comes great responsibility. Use this newfound respect and admiration to do something good with your life.

    Black 15"
    Got the Black 15" grandfather. The fit and finish of this case is unparalleled. The leather is thick and smooth. The black finish is extremely classly. Large enough to hold my ipad, documents, binders and folders. Can fit under the seat on an airplane. My only wish is that it had a more easier and quicker opening lock. Like maybe a push button opening lock rather than the buckle which takes a little strength and time to unbuckle and buckle during opening and closing. Still its very nice.
