Men’s Briefcases & Wallets

Like briefcases, businessmen come in all shapes and styles, while serving different purposes. Some are simple sophisticates, others are elaborate entrepreneurs. Some carry bulky binders, others prefer alphabetized agendas. No matter your professional style, there’s a briefcase out there to fit your every file, folder, laptop and PDA. For the career-driven male in need of various compartments to aid in organization, Heritage’s dark brown leather case, $99 and Brenthaven’s black carrier case, $120, offer ample storage and durability to fulfill your everyday needs on the trek to and from the office. If you don’t lug as much paperwork and simply utilize a briefcase to transport a laptop and a few personal items, try this black “Village” briefcase, $795, the “Country Luxe” slim flap briefcase in brown, $798, both by Cole Haan, or Johnston & Murphy’s double handle portfolio briefcase, $295. While a briefcase sets the tone for a man’s professional style, a wallet does so for his personal taste. A wallet should make a man feel confident whether he’s whipping it out to pay for a fancy meal or while getting carded for buying beer.
