One for the Medicine Man.

April 17, 2009
You know those intense pangs of regret you get that have that acutely discomforting effect? Well I’m suffering right now, so to speak, chiefly due to my not placing medicine in first place on the CAO form last year. Perhaps then I could sport one of the wondrous things below and, when asked “Where did you get that briefcase?” I could convincingly reply “Oh that’s just my medicine briefcase!”, in which I’d store a whole manner of apothecarial items…

Hélas, it wasn’t the career path I chose (or could even achieve considering the inordinately high points requirement…) but I’m still thinking these are too beautiful to be inappropriate in any context, anyhow. Fashioned from English bridle leather and lined in calf suede, these lightweight briefcases come in three sizes and the colours are certinaly something to write home about: a rich tan, classic black and a decpetively edible-looking chocolate browne. They come from Bill Amberg – a brand I’m entirely unfamiliar with, but unspeakably eager to know more about. Amberg comprises a group of companies, which are all focused on producing top-notch leather goods and it’s apparently collaborated with brands such as Dunhill and Bulgari. More sacrificing of uni-research time for brand-research time is required, I reckon.

    I just saw a great Balenciaga briefcase in Berlin. If I wake up tomorrow and find myself still thinking about it, I think I’m going to have to buy it.

    These bags are great; I’ve been looking for a briefcase cum general manbag, and this fits the bill perfectly. I love the hardware and the handles; I don’t think I’ve come across anything like that before. Unfortunately, they’re a little out of my price-range though.
