The Best Leather Briefcases for Men for Work and Travel

Ah, the leather briefcase. A staple for the working man for generations. And for good reason. We believe the best things stand the test of time. The best businesses, the best relationships and yes, the best products. 

That’s why we are passionate about crafting leather briefcases that your grandaddy could have owned. Things that are made to stand the test of old father time. When was the last time you bought something that could outlast you?

Leather Briefcases for Work and Play

At The Real Leather Company, we build our briefcases first and foremost to show off your class and quality in the office. We know that for attorneys, doctors and executives, you need something that shows you know your style. It’s got to be smart, but it’s got to have personality too. The Daily is very popular with our executives for its top grain leather, large storage space and premium buckle design. The Everyday has room for all the gear an executive might need on a commute or longer business trip.

We are also conscious that some customers are looking for a briefcase that is a little more rugged. Something for weekends where you have to dip in and out of the laptop. For a weekend in the wilderness, featuring a few remote meetings, we love The Jones. It’s rugged, it’s made from distressed leather and it still has room for your laptop. Also check out The Retro. It’s a throwback design, with classic full grain leather used. It features a hide that will naturally develop a beautiful patina over time.

Our leather briefcases for men are built to get better with age. They make the perfect carry on accessory for traveling. And they are built to be with you for the long haul.

Leather Briefcase Accessories

Once you have your leather briefcase, why not check out a few accessories to go with it? If you are going for a whole new office look, our leather journals only extend your classic aura. If you planning to travel a lot with your new case, our leather toiletry bags and leather fanny packs are a great option. We love these as groomsmen gifts too.

As your go-to leather goods shop, The Real Leather Company is here to supply only the best gear.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why choose a briefcase from The Real Leather Company?

Our briefcases for men are painstakingly crafted by artisans that have passed down the trade for generations. We work with smaller partners, because we believe those that can take the most care with manufacturing can produce the best goods.

2. How do I care for my leather briefcase?

Leather briefcase care is important. Whilst our leather is built for the long haul, there are activities you can do to develop the patina and extend its life.

We recommend using a good leather conditioners on our high quality leather goods a couple of times per year. This helps to moisten the leather, prevent cracking and develop the patina to be richer.

A good leather cleaner should be used to wipe off stains, dirt and other contaminants. Be careful with any other chemicals as these can harm leather.

Always store your leather goods in a cool, dry place.

3. What do I do if my briefcase gets wet?

First, note that any quality leather good should stand up easily to standard rain and small amounts of water.

But, leather is water resistant, not waterproof. An extreme soaking or a large spillage can harm leather.

If your briefcase does get wet, we recommend stuffing it with newspaper and leaving it outside to air dry. Do not use artificial heat sources like lamps or radiators as this can crack the leather during drying.
