The founder of Coach decided to produce leather goods and handbags by refining the natural leather. Even though some of the briefcases today are made with color, the traditional glove-tanned leather remains a favorite of many shoppers.
Its business collection has been a popular selection with many executives. From briefcases, Palm Pilot accessories, laptop computer cases to writing portfolios, the travel collection is also able to withstand travel conditions. The leather is specially treated so it remains sealed, allowing it to retain its original condition over time.
The Trader Brief is the perfect gift for the business traveler. This unique laptop-friendly bag offers everything a traveler wishes for - space, style and expandability.
The seams are double-stitched for extra reinforcement and the briefcase offers an organizational panel for pens and business cards. The two front expandable pockets under the main flap are perfect for calculators, date books and even a Palm Pilot.
The 16x10x4 Trader Brief comes in black leather, British tan or mahogany, all with nickel finishes. It also comes equipped with a 42" detachable strap.
Most leather briefcases are somewhat expensive but at $428, this bag is reasonably priced.
Coach offers organizers for Palm Pilots ($110), cell phone cases ($68) and embossed pocket organizers ($98).
