Sometime back when our dads worked nine to five in offices and left their in-tray behind them at the end of the day, another thing they left behind was a taste for hard-shell briefcases. As work, home and social lives have merged, our clothing and accessories have kept pace. Gone are the (let’s be honest, rather aggressive) hard lines and noisy security locks of our fathers’ business holdalls; replaced instead by soft leathers, rounded corners and versatile designs. These newer incarnations wear their pedigree subtly, in elegant finishing touches and high-quality fabrics. Just formal enough to carry with a tailored suit and yet relaxed enough to wear with a sweater and chinos for your coffee meeting on the fly, this is an accessory that exemplifies the modern work dynamic.
