I was first made aware of Holdall & Co when a reader sent in a snapshot for Bagaholicboy Mailbag, glowing with pride as he gushed about how he now takes it everywhere with him. After a couple of clicks online I came face to face with the Holdall & Co Folio, a full grain bridle leather that’s as functional as it’s handsome. Brains and brawn, I like.
Handmade in England, each folio (depending on the size you get) can comfortably hold magazines, notepads, A4 papers and even the 13″ MacBook Pro, which is a bonus if you ask me. On the back, there’s even a leather loop where you slot folded newspapers or a short umbrella, a really nice touch.
Beautifully finished with traditional stitching, they are priced at GBP185 and GBP220 for the 12″ (The Organised) and 14″ (The Professional) folios respectively. A steal, especially when it will just age beautifully over time and remain a classic wardrobe essential even as fashion seasons come and go.
