I rest my case

Is it sad to be so excited by a briefcase? When it comes too the design and craft of Carl Friedrick excitement seems appropriate. Expertly made, the Palissy briefcase is not only perfectly practical but a stylish addition to the world of business and fashion. It attracts praise and inspires confidence but beyond all that is a great, functional briefcase. Packed with my laptop, notebook, novel, assorted pens, mints, cables and phone, it is my office on the go. Roomy, beautiful and useful.

Absolutely Beautiful

I am a bag fanatic, I've owned a number of the popular retail store leather briefcases. i saw an ad about the palissy briefcase and felt i just had to have it. To be honest I put it off and tried to talk myself out of it for over a year because the price was a little steep compared to the bags I was used to purchasing. One day I decided to just treat myself and purchase the Palissy Brief case in Cognac. When it came in I was truly amazed by the quality. It was absolutely beautiful and like no other briefcase you are going to find at any retail chain stores I promise you that. If you are looking for that quality sophisticated looking business bag don't put it off, just buy it, you will be glad you did.

Great briefcase!!

Great quality briefcase with outstanding quality. Always receive complements when using it.

The only briefcase you'll ever need.

This is without a doubt the best briefcase I have ever owned, the quality is superb, the construction pristine and it smells like pure luxury. If you are in the market for a briefcase/shoulder bag look no further. If you're on the fence wondering weather £400 is too much for a bag, I highly recommend you treat yourself. You get more than what you pay for here, certainly far better quality than certain designer models costing far more.

Qualities I like:
-Surprisingly spacious
-Quality zippers and flawless stitching
-Fabric lined full leather shoulder strap
-Rugged/hard-wearing, have no qualms mistreating this item, it would hold to moderate abuse
-It is a compliment magnet
-Luxurious leather (that aroma!!)
-Attention to detail (metal feet, reinforced handle, strap brackets placed hidden behind handle straps...)

Would recommend in a heartbeat and will certainly be a returning customer. A big thank you to the Carl Friedrik team for A+ customer service. Ciao.
