There is no shortage of quality briefcases and bags out there. You can find one at various price points and colors at almost any retail location. In fact, I’ve found some dope briefcases (attache hard case, vintage suede briefcase, and the slim leather brief) at local thrift stores as well.

However, if you’re looking for one that will last the test of time and pair well with just about any outfit, I think a brown leather briefcase like this one is ideal.


In my opinion, a quality briefcase is the epitome of modern business style and functionality. Therefore, as a young entrepreneur it’s important to own a briefcase that can function as an everyday carrying case as well as a travel companion.

For those that commute or just travel often, it’s important to have a bag that you can quickly stash (and have easy access to) your phone, keys, passport, etc.

That’s actually one of my favorite things about carrying a slim briefcase because I hate having too many things in my pockets!
