A Softer, Gentler Briefcase for Hard Workers

You deserve a weekday partner in crime.

In the analog age, men with business to do commuted between office and home carrying a briefcase full of papers, folios and notes plus a refillable pen. Today, one laptop does everything those paper and pens did (except leak), relegating the briefcase to drug-deal scenes in action movies. But what if a guy still wants a authoritative, stylish companion? Most laptop bags are endlessly pocketed and hopelessly frumpy. Enter, the WANT Les Essentials de la Vie Trudeau: a slender computer bag with briefcase style detailing and quality. Both interior and exterior are tanned calf hide, with a double gusset inside to keep your laptop (up to 17”) secure. An embossed lock keeps things secure, as do signature YKK two-tone zippers, and the leather handles are slender but reliable. It’s the best of two eras: old-school style, digital capability.
