Gentleman’s essential: Rubirosa briefcase

Fashion is a strange thing. Constantly changing and evolving with the times, it’s never content with itself, always looking to reinvent. This is not a notion we’re particularly fond of here at The Gentleman’s Journal, and as such we prefer to dress in a classic manner, the likes of which served icons such as Cary Grant, Clark Gable and later on, Steve McQueen very well indeed. One of the things these men all had in common was that they nailed the small details. The details make the man, so investing in timeless shoes, ties and bags made all the difference for them, and it will for you too. Talking of the latter, a leather briefcase is a must-have for the modern gentleman, and as luck would have it, Rubirosa have produced one of exceptional style and quality.

Named the Mahana briefcase, this twin-compartment bag is constructed from the finest French cow leather, which is then treated, died and finished in Italy. Completely biodegradable and 100% vegetable tanned, the leather is soft to touch and will age gracefully over time.

The ideal daily business bag, it features storage space for laptops, work documents as well as pockets for writing instruments. The adjustable leather shoulder strap will take some of the load off too, should things get a little heavy.

Its classic styling and functionality, as well as its outstanding level of finishing, means that the Mahana briefcase will stand the test of time and serve you for years to come. It may not quite give you the style credentials of Grant or McQueen, but you’ll be well on your way.

The Rubirosa Mahana briefcase costs €499. For more information, click here
