A men's leather briefcase and messenger bag from England
Crafted in the land from whence our language came, our Tusting Messenger men's briefcase exudes the best in refinement, quality and skill from the other side of the pond. Distinguished buckles give it that look of nobility, yet it's easily opened via quick-release stud closures. This handsome leather briefcase could become a lifelong companion. Tusting’s famed leather is lovingly produced to enhance its characteristics of durability, water resistance and ease of maintenance.  
Made in England, expressly for Levenger
These are heirloom-quality pieces, made in England by Tusting of Buckinghamshire, creator of fine leather goods since 1875. These rich Tusting leathers mellow with age, acquiring that comfortably worn-in look, as if you’ve owned them forever. Some variations may occur in coloring, as the leather is finished by hand using an age-old process. 
A word about the wax in Tusting leather
One of the reasons this full-grain leather has such a rich and resilient character is because of the wax that's deeply ingrained. Occasionally this wax may leave a mark on clothing, so do take care. For Tusting leather not to have this wax, though, would be like England not to have history. It's part of what makes your Tusting bag endure.

The British have a talent for putting craftsmanship first and taking the time that attention to detail demands. We work with a small, family-owned tannery tucked away in the Buckinghamshire countryside to create these leather goods. The leather is as aromatic as a new saddle and has the same substantial feel.

Perfect Briefcase The perfect briefcase-- leather and workmanship is of the very highest quality, and the design is just right for everyday use-- slim and light enough to be easy to carry, but able to hold quite a bit when necessary (including a standard-sized laptop). Enough compartments to keep things organized, but not so many as to get in the way. Very, very pleased. February 19, 2015
Messenger Brief I have been looking for the perfect size brief for traveling on the train and carrying my laptop. I found it. The quality is superb. Size is not to large or too small. Very pleased. July 31, 2014
Stains I got this bag as a graduation present, and while it is beautiful, it badly stains all my chinos and light-colored shirts. Seems they sacrificed functionality for the sake of appearance. July 13, 2015
Outstanding bag I spent quite a bit of time looking for a bag that looked professional, but also would fit in a business/casual setting. I wanted a bag that would improve its look and function as it aged. I could not be happier with my Tusting Messenger Brief. It is large enough to hold my folio and some files with room to spare. The inside back pocket is large enough to hold my Mac Book Pro (15") when necessary. When I exchange my MacBook for an iPad I have plenty of room to spare. I am 5'8" and have not had any issues with the length of the shoulder strap. In addition, the few accidental scratches on the bag have rubbed out easily with my fingertips; I have not had any of the leather stain transfer onto my clothes. It's a great bag and it something that I hope I can pass to my son one day. January 30, 2015
Short lifespan Loved it when I first got it but then the lining started to tear and the buttons that hold the flap down fell off almost every time I opened the briefcase. Eventually they were lost. Looks great but doesn't hold up. I tried to upload photos of the problems but was unable to upload them to this review. February 27, 2014
Lovely Bag This bag is beautiful. It is exactly what I was expecting. I gave this bag to my husband for Christmas and he loves it. The only thing I was disappointed by, was the box in which it arrived. A beautiful thing like this deserves to be packed in a box more suitable for gift wrapping and presentation. December 31, 2013
A terrific Xmas gift My wife purchased this bag for me for Christmas. So far I love it. It is very handsome, lightweight, and yet surprisingly room inside. Lots of sleeves and pockets to put things in. I teach at a university and this bag makes me feel very professorial. December 4, 2013
Wish I could be positive I bought my first Messenger brief in August. After a month of use, the strap rivet pulled out of the top flap. I returned the bag and got a replacement. After using on one business trip, the exact same thing happened. I now have bag #3 in hopes that the issue will not occur again. Overall, I really like the style and functionality. Hopefully it's not 3 strikes and you're out! November 2, 2013
Sold Purchase First impression out of the box was that this is a quality piece. Leather is of good quality and feels good in one's hands. The color is darker than the pictures on the website suggest. After using it for a week, the only problem I have with the bag is the included strap is way too short. I am 5'9 and the straps lack of length makes it sit awkwardly on my back. I would recommend buying the longer strap if you plan to get good use out of this bag. Thank you for your time. October 13, 2013
