Invest in Timeless Class of a Bygone Era


We know, we know. We too have never seen a black leather briefcase this suave. We
looked, and it didn’t exist. So, we made it.

A Black Leather Messenger Bag Fit for a Star


What comes to mind when you think “Noir”? For us, it’s classic characters in black fedoras, cruising through New York City in their ‘60s Cadillac. To the Pink Panther theme song, of course. All that’s missing in this picture is a sleek AF men’s black leather briefcase to carry all of his sneaky tools and gadgets from A to B.

Designed with the modern gentleman in mind, The Noir is so much more than a black leather bag. This premium lifestyle staple will soon become your closest companion on life’s daily adventures, whether you’re keeping up appearances at work or cracking open a cold one with the boys at happy hour.


  • Made from black full grain leather
  • Available in 16 and 18 inch widths
  • High-quality hardware and concealed locks safely secure the bag
  • Durable adjustable leather carrying strap can be disconnected
  • Two outer pockets, two interior zipper pockets, two side pockets, one zipper pocket at the back, plus padded compartments inside for computer accessories and more
  • Padded laptop sleeve fits up to 15-inch and 17-inch screen display laptops (diagonal measurement)


  • Dimensions:
    • 16 Inch Width: 16" L x 12" H x 4.5" W (fits up to 15" laptop)
    • 18 Inch Width: 18" x 13" H x 5" W  (fits up to 17" laptop)

It’s Offensively Good-Looking

They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but The Noir has beauty to match its roominess.Like the tall, dark stranger in the night your mom told you not to talk to, The Noir is deep, rich, and shrouded in an air of mystery – but one thing is clear. He’s hot.

It’s Full-Grain

Each Noir black leather briefcase that leaves our warehouse is crafted at the hands of artisans using premium full-grain buffalo leather.

In fact, we’re so obsessed with perfection, that we’ve moved mountains and Cadillacs to bring you the highest grade of leather known to man.

It’s Spacious

Store all your daily essentials without rummaging and fumbling at the most inopportune of moments.From your 15”-17” laptop to a tablet, documents, chargers and cables, books, pens – and those other more discreet essentials – The Noir securely and conveniently stores it all.

It’s The Perfect Gift

Give the manliest man in your life the gift that keeps on giving. We can guarantee you that he doesn’t, and never will, own a black messenger bag this debonaire.

Go ahead, rummage through his closet. If you find one, looks like he beat you to the punch and got his own from The Real Leather Company.

The Noir is truly the unsung hero in our collection of men’s leather briefcases. Just like the professional, hard-working man in your life, The Noir is the full package: Good looks, made of the right stuff, and only gets better with age. You can grab one with free shipping today (the bag we mean, not a man…).

Will my device fit?

The Device Fit on this item is: Up to 17 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:

  1. Get something to measure your device with. A tape measure will work great.
  2. Find the bottom left corner of your device screen.
  3. Now, follow the screen with your eyes until you reach the top right corner of the screen.
  4. Take a tape measure and carefully measure the distance from the bottom left corner to the top right corner of the screen.
  5. Measure only the screen part. Ignore the frame or the black edge around the screen (that's called the bezel).
  6. 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.
  7. Compare this number to the Device Fit number above.
  8. If the number you measured is smaller than or equal to the Device Fit number above, then it fits - great!
  9. 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.

Gift for college freshman

I bought this for a family member heading to college this fall. The bag is very nicely presented with a good solid look and feel to it. Good buckles and straps hold everything together. A solid carry all for heavy books, laptop, and much more. College boy was very excited to get it.

Thanks Inesh! Please send our best wishes to your family member heading to college.

Beautiful Leather, Soft Briefcase

High quality materials, highly function, expert stitchwork, artistic. Bravo! The picture does not do justice to this finely constructed, heavy duty work soft case. I use it for my study materials, investments, major and minor business materials, as well as backpack items and transporting a work laptop. Excellent product.

Thanks Jay! That is terrific to read.

Stephen Berman
Great look, great value

I wasn't expecting much for the price, but I was absolutely blown away by the quality and craftsmanship of this bag when it arrived. Thick and supple leather, great attention to detail, and just an all around excellent bag! Positively criminal how little they're charging for The Noir. The Real Leather Company is now my go-to for leather goods in the future. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks Stephen!

Solidly built tough leather case

Took quite a bit of unwrapping, but there it was, a solid leather case. It is tough, it is carry-able. It is not polished or finished,, but it is ready for treatment with leather cream. Inside pockets are OK. Outside ones buckle and can carry smaller items. Does the job I need.

Hi Peter, we're delighted to hear that you like the bag. If you're looking for any tips on how to care for your leather bag, you can find our guide here:

Excellent bag - strap sucks

The bag itself is awesome. Use it for my 17” laptop that was issued to me by my work and to carry various notebooks, files, my glasses, etc.

The strap that comes with it however feels cheap and could be way better especially for the price.

Hi Dustin, thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we're glad to hear you like the bag.

We're sorry to hear about your issues with the strap - please reach out to our support team and we'd love to help you fix this issue.

mark whybrew

Very nice bag. Just as pictured and described... very soft and subtle, but sturdy and plenty of capacity. Serious fumes when I opened the package, but it aired out overnight. I'm gonna treat it with leather conditioner and die the edges and give it a polish, then it'll be even more beautiful!! Glad I made the purchase. The one I ordered from Amazon was the wrong size, made from goatskin and was a piece-of-crap... just gave it away!! This here laptop-briefcase is a keeper, and the price was good too. Thanks... I'll recommend your products to friends.

Thanks Mark! We're delighted to hear that.
