Leather Portfolio

While a leather portfolio or document holder isn’t an essential, it can be a nice item to have if you’re looking for a stylish supplement to your collection of bags. Think of it as a bit of a dressed down and more sartorial alternative to a briefcase and a bit more dressed up than a messenger. Here are a few reasons to consider one.

A leather portfolio is the perfect option when you’ve only got a few papers to carry and keep safe. I often find myself in this situation and while I could easily grab my briefcase or messenger bag, if I know I’m not going to need anything else, like my laptop, chargers, and so on, I always feel like it’s overkill for such a small haul. And though its utility may seem rather limited, don’t overlook ways to get the most out of it—mine fits my 13″ Macbook Air like a glove.

A leather portfolio is also versatile and adaptable to a range of different styles. It will always look great for business when carried with a suit, but really shines as an accessory to kick casual dress up a notch or two. See it paired with a couple of different casual looks here and here.

    The portfolio is cool. Yeah, I don’t know if I would really need it, but it looks good – love the pebbled leather. But those Common Projects sneaks are dope. But I would have gone sockless, though. White sneakers with white socks are dangerously close to suburban dad territory, Brian. Watch out!

    All really beautiful document folders Brian. It’s a good job yet again, but you’ve forgotten a quintessential British Designer, this is beautifully simple and oozes class…http://www.mulberry.com/shop/coming-soon/coming-soon-sub-cat/simple-document-folio-oak-natural-leather

    P.S. I agree with Mihir, white socks and training shoes outside of the gym…. very dangerous. You should try something like this instead: http://www.mrporter.com/intl/product/420203?channel=INTL&country=GB

    Stay classy people.
