There comes a time when you want a bag that's fit for a man, not a man bag. Something more serious than a tote or messenger, but not stuffy. With that in mind, we present an old school, masculine alternative: the briefcase. These here have a timeless quality that lend an air of respectability while being modern enough to handle whatever gear you've got. Especially this time of year, when you no longer have those bulky coat pockets in which to stash your stuff. From Jack Spade's and Bill Amberg's lean leather styles to Ernest Alexander's roomy waxed canvas version, they're the kind of bags that will last for decades and look sharp whether you're sporting a suit or schlepping things around on the weekend.
