I’ve always been attracted to the idea of a briefcase. Perhaps its because they’re the most prototypical of the masculine bags, or perhaps they’re intriguing to me because they’re the type of accessory I’m least likely to ever carry myself. Either way, the sleek, businesslike simplicity of a briefcase never ceases to pique my interest; more so than any other type of men’s bag, a man carrying a beautiful brief looks mature and successful in the most attractive of ways.

Not everyone is going to have the right lifestyle or profession to make a high-end (or even mid-range) briefcase a logical purchase, but for those who do, we’ve rounded up our favorites. With options ranging from $250 to over $3,000, no matter whether you’re just starting out in the mail room or already comfortable in your corner office, we’ve found exactly what you should have carried to work this morning.
