Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bag, You Will Not Regret It! The Football Leather Briefcase is a beautifully crafted bag that will surely leave others in awe. I noticed the bag online but when I saw it in person I was determined to have it. The leather is very durable and very smooth. It does feel and look just like pig-skin on a football. It is also very spacious and has enough room for a laptop and many books. The lining is brown with thin white stripes and compliment the bag perfectly. Yes it has the straps instead of zippers in the front, but that only adds to its look and the zipper pocket in the back can be useful. It also looks better as you are using it, since it becomes more rugged. Everyone who has seen it has complimented it and if you are considering it, you should buy it with no doubts. I also got a free Brooks Brothers football when I bought the bag, since I bought it at a store. I also asked for my initials to be engraved on the front of it in gold, that made the bag look even more complete. Overall a great buy, worth the investment. And, come on, its a bag made out of football leather, you cant get any more "manly"! February 27, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rugged and refined: a winning combination This briefcase is an all-around winner. It would be hard to do better. It is classic in style and reminds me of a horse saddle bag. It is well-made (as expected). The leather is a burgundy color and goes well with either brown or black attire. The inside lining is handsome. It provides ample space, so you do not have to pick and choose what to take with you--simply take it all. It offers both a sturdy shoulder strap and top handle for easy carrying. The only possible drawback are the buckles. It might be nice to have a less old-fashioned means of closing the bag, but then again, it would not be completely faithful to its classic looks. I try to take the time to use the buckles, but if in a hurry, it also works fine to leave the straps unbuckled. March 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Real Legacy Piece This bag has received compliments from women and is a conversation-starter with fellow guys ("It's made out of football leather!") The brass hardware gives it a nice, old-fashioned look. I love this bag not only for its rich colors and attractive appearance, but for its unique materials and its versatility - it's not too dressy and delicate, but it's not as casual as a canvas bag. Its football connections make it seem very rugged and very American (as American as Brooks Brothers.) I will gladly use this bag the rest of my life. January 11, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but not a serious brief Great looking but no very functional, limited functionality no internal divider and skimpy with the pen holders and pockets. Contents roll around in the bag like it was a purse. January 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality Briefcase I bought this briefcase last winter and have been very satisfied. It is very sharp looking but isn't pretentious- an important quality for a new associate. It is the perfect size for my lap top and files. Most importantly, it has held up very well- it is of the finest material and construction. I highly recommend this item to anyone looking for a briefcase. November 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Purchase This is a tremendously well made bag with incredible attention to detail. It is the beneficiary of compliments wherever I take it. Also, it yields far more usable space than many other briefcases. I look forward to using it for many, many years to come! January 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous and striking The gold hardware combined with the rich cognac color make this bag hard to avoid noticing. The pinstripe lining is what really impressed me and put this bag above other similar leather bags. However, would have looked it more with silver hardware. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks smart and extremely practical. This briefcase is very fashionable and serviceable. It has extra outside pockets to store easy to get to items and has a great amount of space inside to keep your items organized. It is a real eye catcher and the object of many positive comments.

Answer: 
Faith,

Yes, you do need to unstrap the flap, though it also works fine to leave the straps unbuckled.

Answer: 
The buckles are real, so you would have to unstrap them. However, I usually just leave them unbuckled.

Answer: 
Hello Faith,

Sorry I did not see your question until today. Unfortunately you do have to unstrap the flaps each time, which can be burdensome, but I got used to it by now, I think one would get used to it. You should go to a store and check it out in case you want to see how they work.

Answer: 
The straps on the Football Leather Briefcase are functioning; they do need to be removed in order to open the flap.

Answer: 
Yes, the main pocket is one large pocket with a smaller thinner pocket for folders and the like. It also has pen organization on that "thinner" pocket. There are two medium sized pockets in the front of the bag. These pockets serve to further help organize items. I have attached a pic trying to show what it looks like. Hope it helps.

That's a good question. I got initials on mine because I purchased at the store. I would suggest buying it and taking it to a store, I am sure they can do it there.

Answer: 
Hi, I have this bag, and have been in some snow and rain. It seems to just shed everything. I have not even had any spots. I gave mine a quick overall shoe polish when I bought it, as I do with all my leather bags, I think that really helps. Just a soft rag and ten minutes and some BB shoe cream is all you need. That's my trick, and I have never had a problem with any leather bag. Hope this helps you out.

Answer: 
Sorry for the delay in answering, forgot about the question. Well.... Yes and no. Yes in that when I have worn it out on the rain nothing inside gets wet but no in that rain spots are left on the bag when it rains, they dry out but that means rain can affect it. I recommend using an all protector spray or mink oil to further protect briefcase from water damage. I have used the bag in very inclement weather and it holds up just fine, but the extra protection, that I recently added, will help preserve the bag in top condition for a longer period of time. I hope this answers your question.

Answer: 
Yes, footballs are usually "thermally bonded" so its a type of bonded leather. What they are specifically referring to is the style, with the little bumps, just like a football. It is more than likely also made of pigskin, like a football.
