Hello my friends! :)

That is a really nice briefcase. 2-2,2mm doesn't sound like much but it looks like it holds its shape without any problems. I like that it has a news paper pocket. The stitching and edges looks flawless. The leather for the partition board is skived to the same thickness as the gusset?

The accordion gusset looks nice but I guess it is only for show as there are no extra holes in the straps?

Where do you get your leather from?

Thank you very much for your words. :)

Yes, I skived this leather by edges.

After I took the pictures I made another two extra holes in the straps.

I bought this leather by www.aacrack.co.uk Very good contact and realy fast shipment.

Ps. I'm realy sorry for my English language.... :/

I worked on that briefcase about 1 month but I work only few hours per night, because I have a full time job as a administrative worker in Hospital :D

Your English is better than our Polish, so no need to apologize!  Glad to have you in the forum, your work inspires.
