My much loved Saddleback Leather Thin Briefcase – in the best color, chestnut – has now completed six months of literal daily service from visits to the local coffee shop to flights around America. Check it out!
The level of obvious wear and tear has been minimal and there has been no damage to the bag. I use it everyday!
The most obvious sign of wear is simple bending of the leather as it gains flexibility. you can see this in the buckled strap, the edges of the bottom near the D rings, and top corners where the shoulder strap presses against the top flap.
The scratches on the leather are helping to patina the leather but I have conditioned the leather a couple times to test different conditioners. Now it has different levels of scratches which looks pretty nice. I won’t condition it for a while to show the full scratching after another six months of use.
The buckle strap gets the most stress and has held up well so far. When the briefcase is filled to capacity the strap still feels solid when you tug on it to get the snug buckle slot.Still loving my brass luggage tag.
