As an alternative, I’ve chosen the delightfully masculine Alfred Dunhill Side Car Briefcase for this week’s Man Bag Monday. This design is a gentleman’s work bag, through and through. (more…)
I’m not the kind of person who’s prone to inappropriate effusiveness or quick superlatives, but I’m not sure what other way to approach the Bottega Veneta Uniform Cocco Lave Briefcase. Superlatives were made for this bag. (more…)
