Rated 5 out of 5 by Guesnerth 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"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by James007 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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Matador 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HEVRON 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fjk88 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SaintRichard 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.
