The Slim Standard Classic briefcase is carefully designed to function, go with a suit, and last for generations. It is made from the highest quality, full-grain cow leather that gets better with use.
The laptop sleeve can accommodate a 13-inch laptop. Leave a note during checkout if you'd like it to carry a 15-inch laptop.
The main compartment is 14 x 10 x 3 inches.
The leather used is slowly veg tanned with only natural ingredients. All hardware is solid brass with a matte brushed nickel finish. Only the strongest, marine-grade, German polyester thread is used to hand saddle stitch the bag together. All exposed stitches are also stitched into a groove to further protect them. The Thin Standard Classic briefcase is engineered with the strongest hand-set copper rivets available. Over time, the leather and rivets will patina to an even more distinguished look. Absolutely no shortcuts or cost saving measures are used in the making of this briefcase.
I created this thin Standard Classic attache after being asked for a more minimalist, lighter version of the original Standard Classic bag which was born out of necessity. With a busy job at various locations a day using every mode of transportation in NYC, I needed a bag that makes it possible to quickly and securely stow and retrieve my phone very often. I also needed to securely pack and quickly access a credit card and metro card. The unique slanted front pocket are sized and oriented to do this. Like the rest of the bag, they are made from as few pieces of leather as possible. The larger pocket is made from a single piece of leather that folds onto itself and both have an extra slot pocket behind them for more storage. The stud closures are the same types used in legendary Swiss army leather packs from WWI and WWII that are still functional generations later.
All Double Rivet Leather products are hand cut and hand stitched to order in New York with American sourced and tanned leather from one of the few remaining American heritage tanneries. There is a three-week lead time on leather bag orders.
