    When will I get my order?

    The current typical delivery time of this item to the US, Canada and the UK is between 2-5 business days.

    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.

    Great bag

    Couldn’t have shown up any better. I use it 3 days a week and the condition is still perfect. Much more spacious than it even looks in the pictures

    Thanks Connor!


    I ordered this for my boyfriend for Christmas! After hours of searching for the perfect briefcase I decided to go with this one! It is everything I was hoping it would be and more. My boyfriend loves it- it’s top quality, classy simple design yet has perfect built in compartments to stay organized.

    That's amazing to read, thank you Kaiti!

    Great Man Bag

    I have been looking for the right man bag to use when I am traveling. I have always liked the bag Jonny Depp carried in the movie The Ninth Gate but it is too small. The distressed leather appearance was the gotcha for this bag. It is larger than the bag I have been using and I find the zippers on The Skyler make for a more secure and easier access than the flap, straps and snapes on my old bag. The shoulder strap is the correct length for me. Very happy.

    Amazing, thanks Michael!

    excellent quality

    good leather, nice handles an overall very nice satchel

    We're really glad to hear that BB, thank you.



    Thank you!
