Neat, slim, minimalist and brand new version of our John & Paul briefcase. It holds a 13” laptop, a few documents and pencils. It has a solid construction and is made in the Czech Republic from durable Italian Saffiano cowhide leather. 38 x 28 x 5 cm.
John & Paul is our very own brand named after its two founders. Our journey began in 2014 when we first met. Soon afterwards we discovered that we had a similar problem - with both of us having been quite slim, most ready-to-wear shirts made us look like a parachute. So we rolled up our sleeves and decided to do something about it. We decided to create our very own sizing system that would fit men who are either too slim or too tall for regular off-the-rack shirts. Our similarly built friends had helped us perfect the sizing and after a year of preparations we were ready to go.
It has been a while since then. We still make high-quality shirts, but we have by no means been idle. As of now we also make perfect T-shirts, polos, briefcases and have our very own line of Italian accessories such ties or pocket squares. And that is just the beginning.
We love bags. We started with a classical large one and it was an even greater success than we had expected. And so we continued. This bag is smaller, even more minimalist and it is made of somewhat different leather. In the latest version we have rounded the hardware, added neat blue lining, padding to both of the stripes beneath the handles and also a handy leather zipper cover so that your laptop doesn't get scratched.
Excellent leather. Saffiano cow leather from Italian tanneries. Compared to nappa we were using before, it looks like new much longer.
Solid construction. The briefcase holds its shape and is as firm as a Scottish detective.
Italian hardware. Nobody can beat the Italians, at least when it comes to hardware.
Practical dimensions. 38 x 28 x 5 cm. Just the right size for a 13" laptop.
The neatest of neat designs. Zippers, outer pockets and all the other dispensable features had to go away. We even hid the John & Paul logo inside.
No shoulder strap. Unlike the large version of this bag, a strap cannot be attached to this one. It just wouldn’t go well with it.
Made in the Czech Republic. The latest manifestation of the proverbial golden Czech hands. In short: nobody had to work round the clock in inhumane conditions somewhere in Asia. Not this time.
Packed in a cloth bag. That's just the icing on the cake.
