What about Briefcases?

Are briefcases a thing of the past?

I still remember my Dad going to work with his briefcase every day back in the 70’s. How times have changed.

Briefcase or Messenger bag?

Messenger bags are great for people on the go, or for those riding a bike to work. But what about securing fragile items? What if your messenger bag tumbles? Is your laptop or screen safe? What about the rain or waterproofing?

Case and point- Recently a fellow coworker was traveling with a messenger bag where a travel bottle got squeezed and ended up leaking on to his notepad. Yikes.

I’d like to return to the classy times where briefcases prevailed. If I buy hardcases for my luggage, why wouldn’t I do the same thing for my everyday needs?

Laptops, Documents, and more…

Predominantly, briefcases are used for carrying important documents, laptops, diaries, stationery equipment, etc. Some employees take work documents to their home to finish off the running project, and the manager wants them to complete the task immediately. Carrying briefcases makes it easier for the people to transport necessary things that are used on a daily basis. Some briefcases feature several pockets that allow them to put different documents according to the subject or relevance.

They are generally made from leather, chrome metal, faux leather. They come in rectangular shape, typically black or brown color and have a half-moon shaped knob at the top. They can be opened by unclipping the fasteners that are placed near the handle. The fixtures of briefcases are generally made of brass. More expensive ones have fixtures of gold. The Older version of briefcases features a satchel-style flap and buckle instead of clasp ones that are seen today.

You will also see some briefcases that include combination locks along with clasps. The combination can be a sequence of 3-6 digits, and it needs to be entered correctly to open the briefcases. These kinds of briefcases are generally used by senior executives as they are helpful in carrying confidential documents and contracts. This is why they are more expensive as compared to the regular ones.
