Some of the most comfortable shoes both Vlad and I have ever owned and worn are Cole Haan. I may not turn to Cole Haan for the most trendy and stylish pieces for me, but for the men’s spectrum the brand delivers. Many of our Man Bag Monday posts have featured bags that cost well over a thousand dollars, but today’s post is with price in mind while not forgetting about style.

Cole Haan is not a brand I follow closely for women’s bags, but the Cole Haan Merced Briefcase shows that for the men there are beautiful bags being made at a reasonable price.


If you want a quality leather briefcase that has both a business and casual side to it, this may be the bag for you or someone you know. I’ll give Cole Haan credit where credit is due, they use premium leather that is incredibly thick and durable. This bag shows that while also having an easy to carry focus with top handles and an adjustable shoulder strap.

The dimensions can fit a laptop, 11 1/2″H x 16″W x 3 1/2″D, without being overly bulky. I love the tan leather used on this bag, which will look dapper against a suit or flow well with a casual look. The inside is made to be used, featuring a zip compartment and light-weight canvas lining. Best part of this package is the price, buy via Neiman Marcus for $398.
