Any of you lawyer or business types ever been tempted to buy a Sac a Depeche (sp?) briefcase? I have bought, and worn out, a lot of briefcases over the last 30 years. For the past several months I have been looking for a replacement for my very worn out, and very heavy, Schlessinger triple gusset briefbag. Today I went to the Hermes store (to check my oldest bag, a chocolate birkin, into rehab). So while I was there, I looked at the briefcase. Oh man! The briefcases are really beautiful. Of course, they are almost the price of a small bolide or kelly bag. But I am seriously thinking about it. As my SA pointed out, the black clemence looks very "put together" with a black bolide, black birkin, or black kelly. (I dont have a black kelly bag yet, but I am hoping this year that one will turn up). My hesitations: 1. More than I have ever spent for a briefcase 2. Seems like a very "alpha male", showy thing to do, to spend a lot of money on a briefcase. On the other hand, I suppose that in itself doesnt make it wrong - men are allowed to spend money on leather bags too. 3. Did I mention, it is more than I have ever spent on a briefcase. In favor: 1. I need a briefcase. its getting embarrassing to carry around my files in a canvas SCOOP NYC shopping bag. 2. Its beautiful and cool. 3. It would look good with my other bags. Any opinions, advice, (alternatives?) would be welcomed and appreciated. If any of you actually have the briefcase or know anyone who does, I would be interested in hearing how you (they) like it. As always, thanks guys.
