Description

Our signature slim briefcase in smooth leather. The briefcase's construction gives it an uncommonly sleek and refined look. Made in the same factory as luxury brands, this briefcase is a bargain given the quality of materials, and it has gained something of a cult status among men's style aficionados.

Selected by The Wirecutter as "Best Leather Briefcase".

Beautiful. Pictures don’t do it justice

They seem almost impossible to come by but when they restock you should definitely get this bag. As beautiful as it looks, you honestly can’t really appreciate it until you have it in front of you.

Beautiful

Absolutely love this briefcase. The leather and zip are both very high quality. The colour is amazing and overall I’m very happy. I wish the inside was a bit more special, and perhaps a different colour (it won’t stay white for very long I don’t suppose). Had many compliments about this case!

Good quality product

Excellent product for work and love to bring it out everyday. Size is fantastic and with good weight. Only downside and I think it's more of a personal choice that the interior may be improved for it's easy to dirty and maybe lack some character. But overall indeed a great minimal design that is done right.

Soft Briefcase

I bought this briefcase for my husband for Christmas. It’s beautifully made, the quality of stitching & pockets inside the briefcase are I’m very happy with my purchase and my husband loves it! Would recommend Linjer to all my family and friends! :)

As per reviews...

I had high expectations and my new the bag is doing well one week in. The light interior is completely impractical but everything else is highly functional and optimized for a MacBook Pro 15. Leather quality and design are both excellent.

Excellent purchase! Minor issue does not maculate the experience.

My heart rushed as I found Linjer's hard, good-looking box resting over my bed. My very first briefcase - something which would seem completely alien to me a few months ago... The nice smell of leather struck me as I opened the box. With little effort I can still feel it today, two months later, as I pull the Briefcase close to my face. I purchased Linjer's Soft Briefcase as an upgrade from my standard backpack. As a law school graduate, I figured the backpack was not very presentable in a more formal setting, such as a hearing or meeting. It is my very first briefcase. As such, it will set the bar for every briefcase I will ever own. I wanted to write this review after using it for a while, in order to better understand what I like about it and what I don't like about it. Linjer's Soft Briefcase is not your 80s or 90s briefcase. It is modern, sharp, clean, no-fuss, very professional, streamlined. I don't use the Soft Briefcase everyday (probably twice a week), but in these two months I have received three compliments on it, from people of different ages. It looks very good, even after some regular use. I think the Mocha Brown ages very well. The wear has already created the so-called "patina" on the corners and handles (specially (i) where the hand grabs the handle and (ii) where the handle meets the case itself). In my view, the "patina" takes away some of the modern look, but in exchange for some classical elegance and charm. I think it will age well, but I don't suppose it will look too modern and sharp forever. The leather is quite susceptible to scratches from fingernails, small objects (credit cards, keys) and the occasional bout with doors and furniture. Nothing major. I get it every time with my shoes and know that such is the price of owning good quality leather. I have tried not to worry too much about it. The Soft Briefcase also feels very good. As you touch the leather and the metals, you can feel they are sturdy, not plasticky at all. The stitching seems to have been made with great care and precision. It does seem it will last for a lot of years to come. I would only point out that the zipper looks very good and well made (it is quite shiny, but not overly so, like some other brands) but its feedback could have been more pleasant. It has room for just everything I need in my commute: a 15-inch laptop, a hardcover notebook, a pen, some ink cartridges, keys and some documents in a very slim folder. I may also add my cell phone charger and some other small items, should I need them. In may also add, on top of it, my laptop charger and adapter (for single-day trips), and here I think the Briefcase reaches its limit. It will bulge outwards a little, to the point that anything else will make it look clumsy. I have tried to carry heavier loads (extra clothing), and do not recommend it. The Briefcase will bulge and look clumsy. The only issue that bothers me is the following: right out of the box, the Briefcase, when placed on the floor on its four metal pads, leaned forward when empty. At first, I thought this was a design choice - since the laptop sits at the back, the designer wanted more weight at the front so that the object is well-balanced when full. After two months of use, I am no longer sure about this. The front of the Briefcase has naturally bulged outwards, further shifting the gravity center away from the geometric center. This causes my briefcase to lean a lot and even tip forward, specially when empty (but also when the load is light). So now I find it difficult to make it stand on its four metal pads. I usually lean it against a wall, which partially defeats the purpose of having the metal pads in the first place. I don't know whether there is a design or materials solution for this issue. It may also be that I carried too much volume in it, thus deforming the leather at the front. This issue is a little annoying, but it won't keep me from giving five stars to this beautiful product, though. All in all, I find this to be an excellent purchase. I have seen similar models by other brands for 2-4 times the price. I am not sure their briefcase is better than Linjer's. From the aesthetic point-of-view, I am still impressed by its looks. From the quality perspective, I am very much satisfied. The gravity-center issue annoys me, but (i) it may be my fault and (ii) it just does not maculate my experience with this product. I will happily feel its leathery smeel for years to come. Definitely recommend it! 5 out of 5!
