We only use high-grade men's belts for shoulder straps. This leather is reminiscent of equestrian leather halter straps. I also use half centimeter thick moose skin. Nothing wimpy here; quality and character that stands out and stands the test of a truly rugged lifestyle. Invest in a bag that you'll love more and more over time.
Not all leather bags are created the same. A great quality leather bag is supposed to look better with time as the leather acquires marks and age-related wear. Make sure to check out my whole store. At the time of this listing, I have 180 items all unique and different.
Once you have tried it you will wonder how you functioned before without an inside handle. Also on many of my briefcases, I add a moose skin handle wrap.
The handle is the point of contact that the owner has with their bag and moose skin leather is so pleasing to touch. My philosophy in writing descriptions is: a picture speaks 1000 words. That said, here is my description. What I love about this old Pigskin leather briefcase is that it was built 30+ years before a company like Apple had even begun but yet it fits the MacBook and iPad Pro so well that is almost seems made for them.
It also goes to show you that this case was built to last. Can you imagine somebody 30 years from now trying to pitch. Here is a beautiful black nylon case with plastic this and plastic that? It seems to me that the bag makers of men's briefcases have the Henry Ford Model-T syndrome.
Ford is has been said told people that they could get a Model-T Ford in any color as long as it was black. Bag Manufacturers seem to say you can get this bag in any color as long as it is black. I love the wonderfully aged patina and the distressed skin along with it's wrinkled texture of the Pigskin Leather on the outside. This case was made by Rexbilt. It has four patents on the label I looked them all up and they all had 1930's dates.
It is really in great shape. Some cases of this age start to dry out and turn to dust; not this treasure. I have reconditioned the leather and the inside appears to be made of some type of water resistant material; maybe vinyl. Before I looked up the patent numbers from the inside tag, I would have put this case in the 1950s or 1960s. One more noteworthy item of interest: The zipper webbing is solid and the zipper is made by Talon; widely regarded as the worlds best zipper company!As shown in the photos: This bag fits my mock-up wooden 15" MacBook Pro 2017 with the measurements of 13.75" x 9.48" x Thickness 0.61" It may fit a bit larger laptop so please contact me if you want me to measure for your specific laptop. This bag fits the MacBook Pro with the measurements of: Width: 11.97 inches, Depth: 8.36 inches, Height: 0.59 inch.
It may fit a bit larger laptop so please contact me if you want me to measure for your specific laptop. This bag fits my iPad Pro 12.9 very nicely. Measurements of the 12.9 are in inches: 12.04 x 8.69 x. No need to carry large rolling bags anymore.Now with our tech (tablets and small laptops) getting smaller, we can carry vintage style bags instead of the "run-of-the-mill" bags being produced in the 21st century. This bag has the true vintage look which is making such an incredible comeback; I think its that people are so fed up with "plastic sameness" everywhere even from high-end bags that used to make stuff from real leather. This vintage case says without saying anything that you like quality and, are not afraid to be different.
I imagine a IT professional who appreciates the vintage look taking this to a meeting or just carrying his MacBook on the subway. It is sure to get comments and compliments.The measurements, in inches, are approximately: 15.75W x 12H x 2D. I have this bag listed as a man's bag.
But to a woman who is looking for that vintage rugged look, this would be perfect. This beautiful bag comes from a smoke-free home in Minnetonka Minnesota. To many, I have added unique functional modifications and made repairs giving each bag that coveted a well-loved look.
