A few weeks ago the good people at Elliot Taylor sent me their red velvet handled briefcase. I loved it from the minute I saw it.
This is definitely not your father's briefcase. It has two zipper compartments on the side with a main compartment in the middle. The smaller compartments mirror each other. There's space for my reporter's note pad, pens and other catch all. The center and main compartment is just big enough to fit my laptop, when I need it.
I'm complimented constantly on my walk to and from work. It's a work of art aesthetically, but also has great functionality. The handle works as a jacket holder as well. It hasn't been hot enough to use yet, but it's an ingenious idea and I have no doubt it'll get great use during the Brookladelphia spring & summer. This would make a perfect gift. It's an excellent balance of a traditional briefcase with modern style.
