Will my device fit?
The Device Fit on this item is: Up to 15 Inch Laptops
Not sure if your device will fit into this leather bag? Here we’ll show you how to find out step by step:
- Get something to measure your device with. A tape measure will work great.
- Find the bottom left corner of your device screen.
- Now, follow the screen with your eyes until you reach the top right corner of the screen.
- Take a tape measure and carefully measure the distance from the bottom left corner to the top right corner of the screen.
- Measure only the screen part. Ignore the frame or the black edge around the screen (that's called the bezel).
- Write down the number you measured and round down to the nearest whole number. E.g. 15.6” becomes 15” and 17.2” becomes 17”. This is your screen size in inches.
- Compare this number to the Device Fit number above.
- If the number you measured is smaller than or equal to the Device Fit number above, then it fits - great!
- If the number you measured is larger than the Device Fit number above, then it won’t fit comfortably. We recommend going back through our collection of bags and filtering by the Device Fit number you need.
I measured my laptop screen size and rounded the result as instructed. My screen size is 14 inches. All bags marked as Up to 15 Inch Laptops will fit my laptop.
Will this bag fit me?
We understand that finding the perfect leather bag can be a concern, especially when it comes to fitting different body shapes and sizes. Our bags are designed to accommodate adults of all sizes, and we have taken special measures to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.
Our leather bags are thoughtfully crafted to fit all sizes of humans comfortably.
Most of our bags feature adjustable shoulder straps that can be extended from 25 inches to 49 inches. This wide range ensures that the bag can be easily customized to fit your unique body shape and size. Whether you're petite, tall, or somewhere in between, you can adjust the strap to find the perfect fit.
Will this bag be too heavy for me?
We understand the importance of comfort when carrying your belongings. Bags made from real leather are slightly heavier than most other materials. That’s why we've made adjusting the shoulder straps on our bags quick and easy.
The design of the adjustable straps are user-friendly and hassle-free, so you won't have to spend a lot of time trying to get the right fit. Once you find your ideal strap length, you can easily secure it in place, allowing you to effortlessly carry the bag with maximum comfort and style.
How do I look after my bag?
Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.
We recommend following our full Leather Care Secrets guide to preserve your leather bag.
Use a good leather care kit once or twice per year to prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. We recommend using this all natural leather care kit for our bags.
Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag 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 bags can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our bags to your local dealer for more information.
Can I get it wet?
Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible, so if your bag 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 leather bag 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 bag smell bad when I get it?
As this bag is made from real leather, it is likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive it. This will fade over time.
Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your bag in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.
Can this leather bag be made with custom dimensions?
We are able to make some leather bags in our collection with custom dimensions.
If you are interested in this service, please contact us, providing the model requested and the desired dimensions. If this is currently possible, we will then provide a quote.
Please note that any custom bags ordered this way are strictly made-to-order, so will take a little longer to get to you and will be more expensive than the similar model on our site. All custom orders are final and returns cannot be accepted.
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!
That's great to hear Darryl. Thanks again for taking the time to let us know how you love the bag.
Works awesome for everything I need it to. Carries all my stuff for work and looks great. Thanks to my beautiful wife for getting this for me!
Thanks James! We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review.
Sturdy, spacious, super nice!

Thanks again Tyler for taking the time to send us this video review!
Love it! Given 4 stars due to visual inconsistency in finishing when held in certain light at certain angles. By no means a deal breaker. What's more, this beauty is going to be getting some knocks and scrapes... I mean, "patina"... in real life anyway, so I'm not sweating it. It's a beautiful piece, absolutely.
I purchased this as a gift for my husband and was so thrilled when it arrived. It was beautiful and exactly what I was expecting based on the images. He loves this bag.
Thanks Jessica for taking the time to leave a review. We're really glad to hear your husband loves his bag.
I love this briefcase! You can feel the quality right away; it's durable enough that I don't feel like I have to baby it. I regularly take it to the courthouse and client meetings--it gets compliments everywhere! My only critique is that I wish it were full grain, but the top grain still holds up well.
Thanks RM! Please let us know if you'd like us to recommend something similar in full grain leather.
The briefcase is absolutely great. Just what I needed to keep organized and take it on the road. Quality is excellent.
Very sophisticated look. Wears really well.
Thanks Frances, that's great to hear!
I have grown accustomed to products from China being cheap knock offs, but even cheap leather is superior to the best plastic. Imagine my surprise when my brief arrived and I discovered it was of world class fabrication! I would recommend one improvement to all manufacturers of laptop cases, though: The computer compartment should feature padding on the bottom edge of the compartment to protect devices from impacts when setting the brief case down repeatedly. Overall, an extraordinary product and excellent service. God bless The Real Leather Company!
Thanks Robert! We've passed your feedback onto our team.
