Not Your Grandfather’s Briefcase

Decidedly contemporary but unarguably classic, the Brakeman Briefcase is a casual, more rugged take on the refined briefcase silhouette. Crafted from water-resistant coated canvas with a smooth leather trim, you’ll never have to worry about getting caught in the rain—or spilling your morning joe on your presentation notes. A double zip closure with water-resistant zippers opens up to an interior zip pocket and padded computer pocket that fits up to a 15” laptop. Two exterior pockets keep essentials ready-to-access, including a large slip pocket with a magnet closure. Comfortable, padded leather handles snap close for secure carrying. Gunmetal hardware and a detachable, adjustable webbing strap add the finishing to this beautifully designed piece.

Leather

Coated Canvas with Smooth Leather Trim

Water-resistant and ready for anything, our “Duck” canvas is coated so that it acts as a double-face material. With a smooth coated exterior in black and a textured caramel brown canvas interior, it’s how Shinola makes rugged look refined.

Smooth leather is ultra-smooth with a minimal grain texture. Semi-matte with a gentle luster, this leather has a modern and versatile look, complemented by a soft and supple feel.

Functionality

Heavy Duty with a Light Touch

Thoughtfully designed with commuters and travelers in mind, the Brakeman Briefcase is reinforced in all the right places and built to last. Conveniently outfitted with several strategically placed pockets, it keeps your computer, your files and your essentials protected, organized and accessible.

Hardware

So Metal

The Brakeman Briefcase is accented with gunmetal hardware. Crafted from brass, it’s stronger than the zinc normally used by manufacturers—ensuring that your bag will last many seasons in style. Design details harken to the lugs on our signature watches, for a look that’s pure Shinola.
