A Men's Leather Laptop Briefcase
165 years in the Making


Here at Pad & Quill, we extensively test all our prototypes, but with the Gladstone Briefcase we got an incredible headstart on that process by drawing on its over one-and-a-half centuries of history. 165 years ago Edward Cole of England submitted a patent for "An Improvement In The Frames Of Traveling Bags" and thus was born the Heritage Gladstone Briefcase Bag. Since then, it has been adopted by people from all walks of life, from Prime Ministers to Physicians to savvy businessmen and even airline pilots. This really is a tried and true design. What makes it so special?

The Iconic Gladstone Hinged Opening


The real genius of this leather briefcase is in how you open it. It is built to swivel open on hinged copper rivets that allow you to access the bag unhindered. Where other briefcases totter between being too hard to get into, and on the other side of the coin, too easy to open and spill everything out, the Gladstone Men's Briefcase offers an elegant solution. Pull it open, get to what you need, and swivel it shut. Then secure it all with a strap and rivet.

Full-Grain Leather That Lasts and Lasts


A truly magnificent briefcase must become more than the sum of its parts, but for that to happen we must start with the very best materials. We've sourced full-grain leather that is top notch. Working with American sourced steer hides, we hand-select only the best portions and use those to create the Gladstone Briefcases for men. This leather is so high quality that it has what we call "patina potential." That means that as you handle it over the years the leather is made to take on a distinctive and beautiful well-worn charm (a patina). Age only adds to its beauty.

Sophisticated Herringbone Fabric Interior


Herringbone is an enduring classic pattern found in luxury items from fine suits to high-end furniture accents. We sourced an incredibly high-end (and expensive) upholstery-grade Herringbone fabric for the interior of the briefcase because we wanted a perfect balance of durable and stunningly beautiful. It also provides an elegantly contrasting background to help you see your stuff.

Enough Space for an Office On the Go


Organizational space abounds in this leather briefcase. The main interior compartment is spacious yet thoughtfully distributed. With a padded laptop pocket, a zippered pocket, and several organizational slip pockets, the inside of the bag is a mini office on the go. The outside also features more slip pockets and a large rivet closure pocket as well. All this tucks away and is carriable with two comfortable handles and a shoulder strap.

Our Confidence in Our Artistry


We choose Artisan over automation. We know that the work of our Artisans is unparalleled and we show that confidence with a 25-year leather warranty. On the inside of each bag, we have discreetly made room for the Artisan to sign their name as a testament to their skill. That way when you get your hands on this bag, you feel the quality that went into making it just for you. Welcome to the Pad & Quill family.
