Top 5 Leather Attaché Cases for Men in 2022


leather attache cases for men

Ah, the attache case. A staple for the classic businessman for generations.

The original French word attache was used to refer to the administrative staff of an ambassador. These staff carried crucial documents, papers and files. They required a bag that kept these documents uncreased; a crumple-proof case if you will.

Hence, the attache case was born.

From this date, you were able to carry documents without fear of tear, crease, crumple or fold in these hard backed cases. Your most important files would appear on the other end in the same condition they left.

Attaches exploded in popularity and rapidly expanded to other industries. Attaches became popular with lawyers, doctors, accountants and other professional fields.

The leather attache is quite different from the many styles of modern leather bags. Not only do they have different features, they also say something different about the user.

In this guide, we'll go through everything you need to know before picking up a leather attache. Then we'll talk about our top 5 picks for men this year.

What are Attaches Good For?

The first question you need to answer is whether an attache is really the right bag for your needs. Here's what they are really good at.

1. holding documents

Attaches are by their nature hard backed. That means they don't fold or crumple like a messenger or duffle bag would. You can't stuff them anywhere you like. But, for this tradeoff you get the peace of mind in knowing that all your documents will stay in perfect condition.

If ever you need to transport really important documents (think contracts, legal papers, accounts, official transcripts) there's no better way to do it than in an attache. You could use a messenger or a backpack, but realistically they will have crumple marks from transport. Even putting documents in a plastic wallet will have some kind of impact.

Attaches are really the best option for transporting documents.

"This is a beautiful traditional attache. Its very roomy and very well made. The interior of the case is beautifully finished." - Coleen, The Turner customer

2. SECURITY

Almost all attaché cases will have some kind of locking mechanism. This fits perfectly with the need to transport highly important documents.

In most cases these documents will also be sensitive and likely confidential. You don't want someone taking your case by accident then being able to peruse highly sensitive 1 of 1 documents.

We always prefer locking mechanisms that have pin codes. With a pin, there's no chance you'll lose a key.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"It holds all my documents and everything else for me to do my job. Great purchase." - Stanley, The Morgan customer

3. ORGANIZATION

A really good leather attache will have a carefully thought out interior organization design.

We really love cases that have lots of different compartments. You'll want a main area for your really important files and folders. But it can also help to have areas for all your other gear that you carry everyday.

Modern designs should have space for your phone, tablet and even laptop. Pockets for wallets, credit cards, business cards and pens are also a great feature.

Try to find something where everything can have its own place and you'll be super grateful down the line. It makes finding stuff way faster.

What are Attaches Not Good For?

Before going ahead, just check out what they're not great at. Here are our top ones:

1. LONG COMMUTES

Alright, so the main reason we don't recommend attaches for everyone is because they are almost solely carried in the hand.

That can be great if you've got a shorter commute. They give a great professional look and you'll have no problems with comfort.

But over a longer commute, say you're walking a longer distance or standing on a train for an hour, that gets old pretty quickly. It'll be uncomfortable and with hard backed attaches, you won't have the option of a shoulder strap.

If you've got a long commute and you need something professional, we recommend our soft backed leather briefcases.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"After weeks of shopping for the perfect brief, I can honestly say that this truly is exactly that! The craftsmanship is second to none, leather quality and color are beyond my expectations, storage capacity is surprisingly quite a bit. I highly recommend this bag!" - Darryl, The Brief customer

2. CARRYING HEAVY ITEMS

Attaches are really built for lighter items like papers and folders. When you start to load up an attache with multiple laptops, charging cables, tablets and more they'll start to be tough to carry real quick.

As mentioned, you can't distribute the weight onto your back or waist with a strap so it's really all in your arm and shoulders.

If you're looking to lug around a large amount of gear comfortably, we'd recommend primarily or collection of leather backpacks.

"Stopped everywhere go!!! Best bag I ever owned. Excellent quality leather. Durable. Thick. Heavy magnets. Great zippers. This should last years." - Anonymous, The Compact customer

3. CASUAL LOOKS

Leather attache cases are really built to complement classic professional looks. They're almost exclusively used with suits or really smart work looks.

If your professional is a bit more casual or laid back, we might recommend leather messenger bags instead.

Who are Attaches Great For?

So with all that said, are attaches right for you?

Here's the top categories our customers have reported they love their attaches for:

1. legal professionals

The #1 profession that buys our leather attaches are those in the law arena. So yes, attorneys and lawyers, but also judges and legal staff such a secretaries.

These professional report that attaches are perfect for carrying contracts and legal paperwork between their offices and their clients. When a signature is required in person and witnesses are required to be present, there's often no better means of transport than a quality attache case.

Sensitive legal documents can be kept secure with a locking mechanism too. The fortunes of many can be affected if a legal document is seen by those without authorization. Security is paramount for those in this lines of work.

As those in the law profession need to make a great impression on any client, the instant classic look of a quality leather case is always appreciated.

"This briefcase is perfect. Our son loved it. It has great organization and was just the right size. - Doris, The Lawson customer

2. medical professionals

Doctors, consultants and other staff in the medical field report great use from leather attache cases.

Many of these guys will carry sensitive patient information and prescriptions that need to be kept secure. Having these documents getting into the wrong hands can be a disaster for the professional and the patient.

We also see medical researches preferring attaches often. Carrying around confidential research can be a stress if not looked after properly.

Those in these fields won't be a stranger to having a classic, professional look. Simply put, doctors need to look impressive. And an attache will provide that.

"This was a gift for my husband. He prefers brown and he likes hard sided briefcases. He generally leaves the computer at home, but if neccessary he is able to put it in the briefcase. He loves it, just room for all his audits." - Noel, The Daley customer

3. OTHER PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT

We of course see a whole bunch of other professions using mens attache cases.

Accountants and finance professional are popular for sensitive personal and company information, but really attaches work great for any profession that may need to carry documents and give a high class look.

An attache tells the world you're a serious professional. If you want to give that look, there's nothing better than a quality leather case.

"I just got this briefcase a couple days ago, so I'm still trying it out. First, I'm going to say the leather quality seems great. They even include a leather swatch that is attached so you know that it is in fact leather. The design is really good. I like the size. The locking mechanism seems to be really solid for the strap that goes over the top. Also the sides look nice, they don't have that accordion look. Overall I really like the bag and would recommend it." - Anonymous, The Harrison customer

Why Should I Go For Authentic Leather?

With so many different brands, leathers and attaches out there, it can be hard to know whether real leather is actually worth it. Copies these days are harder than ever to spot, and we know real leather comes with a real price tag.

So do you need real leather? Well, here are the main reasons we think it's a good idea.

1. IT LASTS

The best reason to go with real leather is the enormous lifespan you'll get.

To put it plainly, fake leather just can't keep up.

PU leather or bonded leather is fake leather. Look out for descriptions of these when looking at leather bags. These faux leathers are usually made by bonding together scraps of lower hide leather. In some cases, they will look like real leather, but sadly they will rip or tear after just a short time.

Real quality leather such as full grain or top grain grades will be made from the very top layer of the animal hide. It'll have all the long lasting properties that the animal hide had. Just think of how animal hides are made to withstand extreme conditions - snow, wind, even attacks from predators. Your attache case will be made to handle the same.

If you go for real leather, there's no reason why your briefcase shouldn't last for decades. It'll beat off scratches with ease and any marks or blemishes will just add to the case's character.

Many of our customers report that they are planning to hand down their briefcases as heirlooms. Just imagine that. You can use your attache for decades in your career. Then your son or even grandson could use the same case for their careers. What an incredible gift that could be.

Real leather has a real lifespan - there's no alternative if you're looking for something long lasting.

2. THE PREMIUM LOOK

To the trained eye, real leather is easy to spot. The grain is not uniform and it'll be thicker and weightier looking that one might expect.

When you press down on the leather, it should take a second or two to spring back into position. It should be almost warm to the touch. Machine made leather will be cold and lifeless.

If you're planning to go into high professional fields, it's likely that others that favor real leather will be able to spot what you're sporting. Those that can't will ask if it's real leather.

There's nothing quite like the esteem boost of having real, quality leather. To those that know, it'll tell them that you're a man that means business. To those that don't know, you'll enjoy the pleasure of telling them when they ask.

Quality always shines through - whether it's you or your briefcase.

3. IT'S AN INVESTMENT

We've already said that real leather is made to last a lifetime.

Just think about that for a second.

High quality cases are designed so that you never need to buy another work bag again.

Suddenly, the price doesn't seem so prohibitive right?

Some quick maths would show that a typical $300 quality leather attache used over a 35 year career costs less than $10 per year. When was the last time you spent less than $10 on a bag for a work year?

Over time, it's likely you'll prefer the look of your case due to the distressing process that leather undergoes. It'll take on an aged, weathered look that shows just how long you've been at your game.

So not only will you prefer the look of your briefcase, it also becomes a better investment the longer it lasts.

What Interior Should I Look for?

Not that long ago, the interiors of attaches had nothing to them really. They were essentially just open boxes to put your papers in. Thankfully, we've come a long way in a short time.

These days, we really recommend looking for an attache that has smart business organization.

Yes, you should still have a main area where you can store all your files, folders and documents. The open area if you will.

But, other pockets can be a really great feature and stop all your other gear jumbling around. In days gone by, you needed a briefcase for your folders, then a rucksack or messenger bag for all your other gear.

These days, smart interior organization should allow you to carry smaller devices comfortably like a tablet and phone. Then your pens, business cards and wallet should also have their own space within a quality attache.

Look for something that's been thoughtfully designed inside - you won't regret it when you need to find something super quick in a meeting.

"This case has to be the highest quality product I have ever experienced. Appearance of this quality piece of workmanship is hard to believe. I have received numerous compliments on my choice.." - Anonymous, The Coughlin customer

What Size do I Need?

Size is a really important question in the leather attaché case world.

Whilst in the backpack or shoulder bag world, you'll probably get away with just getting the biggest one, you won't here. That's because attaches are not designed to be carried over longer distances. They are designed for carrying within the hand. And when you combine that with how heavy real leather is, an overly large attache can quickly become cumbersome on commutes.

We recommend getting an attache that is perfect for your needs. Stay away from the thought that you'll buy something bigger 'just in case'.

Typically, something that's made to comfortably fit A4 papers and folders will suffice. A 3.5" width is usually sufficient for most. But if you're looking to carry particularly thick folders or even a laptop a 4.5" thickness is also acceptable. Some newer models even have expandable, push out bottoms so that you can easily go from 3.5" to 4.5" widths. We love this particular model for getting the most from size.

If you require a briefcase thicker than 4.5" you may be better going for a softer briefcase with a shoulder strap.

This is quality all the way! I've had several people in my office ask about it. And the russet brown leather is really beautiful.

Get rid of the backpack and start looking like the professional you are!" - Steve, The Lexington customer

What Color Should I Go For?

Typically, you'll find a small range of acceptable professional colors available in the leather attache world.

Different shades of black leather attache cases, brown leather attache cases and even burgundy leather attache cases are most common.

If you're looking for something made from full grain leather, your best option will be brown. This is because full grain leather has no processes applied. It's direct from the animal onto the bag. That means it's designed to last the longest, but also means dying processes are not recommended. As natural leather is most often a shade of brown, this is the color to go for.

If you want top grain leather, processes are permitted to buff out blemishes, but also to dye the leather. Black is a great option here as this color goes with all work outfits. It makes less of a classic statement that brown, but for some that'll be just what you're looking for - that understated look of quality.

Burgundy is a less common color, but one we do see for those that really want to stand out. If you work in the law field, brown and black attaches for laptops are a dime a dozen. Grab burgundy if you really want to stand out.

How do I Care for my Leather Attache?

High quality leather attaches are built to last decades. And if you treat them right there's no reason why they should not. They will resist tears and rips and any marks will become part of the character of the leather.

But, there are still a few things you can do to help extend the life of your briefcase. Read on for more information.

1. USE A LEATHER CONDITIONER

A leather conditioner can also be super helpful for prolonging the life of leather and giving it that deep, rich look you've seen.

We recommend using a good quality leather conditioner every 6 months to keep the fibers in top shape and bring out the patina development. A good leather conditioner will also help to further waterproof a solid leather good.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Just used the cream for the first time. Really brings out a richness in my bag and the extra waterproofing is a nice bonus too. Thanks Real Leather Company!"- Yu, Leather Cream customer 

 

2. STORE IT THOUGHTFULLY

If you're not using your bag, be mindful of where you leave it. The worst thing you can do is leave it in a wet or damp storage area. If you have a basement that floods annually, this is pretty much as bad as it gets for storing real leather.

As leather is natural material, processes haven't been applied to make it 100% water resistant. As it's a natural hide, it's even possible that prolonged exposure to damp can cause mold to grow.

We advise storing leather is a cool, dry place wherever possible.

Another quick note - if for whatever reason you're looking to delay the distressing process, keep it out of excessive direct sunlight.

Your most common questions

WHAT IS AN ATTACHE CASE?

Leather attache cases are almost always hardbacked and cannot be bent into a different shapes like many other leather briefcases. This is so documents stay straight and any papers included will arrive in the same condition as you stored them. This is a unique feature among leather bags and why we recommend men's attaché cases for those that need to transport papers, documents and other office supplies.

WHERE CAN I BUY AN ATTACHE CASE?

At The Real Leather Company, we stock a range of real leather attache cases. We have both black attache cases and brown attache cases available, in a range of different sizes and with and without combination locks. Use the this page to browse between the different styles available.

WHICH LEATHER TYPE IS BEST FOR AN ATTACHE CASE?

For leather attaches, we recommend only full grain leather and top grain leather. These are the very top layer of the animal hide. The top layer is the strongest and will last far longer than any other grain of leather. Full grain leather allows no chemical processes, but will have some imperfections/blemishes present as it's completely natural. Top grain leather allows chemical processes to be used so the leather briefcase will appear to have a uniform pattern. We find top grain leather attaches are most popular as they show no signs of imperfection and are therefore more suited to professional settings.

SHIPPING AND RETURNS

In all cases, we offer Free Shipping to the USA. For most items, Free Shipping is also available to Canada. Most orders are processed and shipped within 1-3 business days of receipt.

All purchases from our store come with a 30-day moneyback guarantee. Got your eye on something? Try it out for 30 days. If it's not for you, just return it to us and we'll refund your order. And we promise, no hard feelings!

WHEN WILL I GET MY attache?

Typical delivery times to the United States and Canada are between 2-5 business days for most items.

HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY attache?

Treating a real leather attache with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your item.

Always wash your hands before caring for leather - oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend taking a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth and briskly sweeping the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year to prevent your briefcase becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often. Simply apply the cream to the entire case with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using this all natural leather cream for our cases.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your case can have a good, long life.

CAN I GET IT MONOGRAMMED?

At this time, we do not provide monogramming or embossing services. However, all our attaches can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our cases to your local dealer for more information.

CAN I GET IT WET?

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather briefcase. We know this is not always possible, so if your case does get wet, here's what you do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth as quickly as you're able to.

Caught in a rainstorm? Be sure to let your case completely air dry and do not use a heat source to speed up the drying (this can damage the leather). Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape and absorb moisture from the inside.

WILL MY case SMELL WHEN I GET IT?

As these bags are made from real leather, they are likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive them. This will fade over time.

Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your case in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.
