I’ve always been a fan of a smart leather briefcase, the type busy professionals will carry from point to point that’s probably filled with all manner of important work documents and contracts that they’ll need in their daily work life. And even though I own a couple of classic briefcases myself, I’ve never had the chance to use them all these years because, well, I don’t really need something so formal and structured because of the work that I do.
Which brings us to the Montblanc Meisterstück Selection Double Gusset Briefcase, a supremely smart formal workhorse that won’t look out of place on any suited man’s lap. Measuring 42 cm by 32 cm by 12 cm, it’s a really decent size for all manner of A4 folders and tech gadgets. Made in Italy, using full-grained calfskin that’s also reminds one of Saffiano leather, it being grained also means it will be more hardy than smooth-skinned leathers and more resistant to most nicks and bumps.
Priced at just SGD2300, which really, isn’t that bad for a work bag that will probably be used on all work days of the month since men don’t usually like changing up their bags as often as say, the ladies, you’ll find it it Black, Cognac (shown above), and Flannel (a really lovely hue of grey) at Montblanc boutiques islandwide.
Plus it doesn’t scream ‘old’ or ‘fuddy-duddy’ either, just smart and sophisticated, which can only be a good thing.
