Shirt Pocket Briefcase
This is one of those items that may seem too simple to be very useful at first glance but in practice will likely make you wonder how you ever lived without it.
I purchased this item on sale at the beginning of my PhD program for times where I didn't want to carry around my bigger notebook (since being without something to jot down ideas, to-do lists, or random information throughout the course of my academic day is simply not an option). It still looks like new after tons of use and many miles spent living at the bottom of my overflowing back under laptops, notebooks, and any number of other things that might damage a lower-quality product.
I had previously purchased a lower-quality version of this product and ended up not using it very much because it a) covered up too much of the card, b) was ugly and therefore unappealing to whip out in life, and c) didn't really have a good place for me to store full cards. Despite that, I had started using index cards often enough (especially the Action Method cards) that I was willing to invest in a higher quality product. Am I ever glad I did! I wonder now why I took so long to get around to this quick and unobtrusive way of always having a note-taking system handy. The variety of cards offered by Levenger contribute to the amount of use that I get out of this product and I look forward to continuing to enjoy it for years to come.
If you're on the fence as to whether or not its actually worth a purchase, believe me that it is!

Replacement for Lost Item
I had a purple Shirt Pocket Briefcase. I seemed to have lost it. Then, I couldn't find my original, not purple, Shirt Pocket Briefcase. When I saw that this was on sale, I grabbed it right up because I have found it so useful. I always have a nice card for note taking and for sharing information with others. The briefcase looks good and the cards feel substantial. It's perfect.

Why is the Essential Shirt Pocket Brief not avail?
I have been using the Essential Shirt Pocket Briefcase for the past 2-3 years and it is always with me. I am not anti-technology, but I would much rather physically write down my notes, grocery lists, phone numbers, To-Do lists, etc., on inexpensive 3x5 index cards. I am very glad that I bought 2 extra as backups, since Levenger stopped selling the Essential Shirt Pocket Briefcase.

Purchased this for my husband who is a super-commuter. He plans to use it to jot down project notes and reminders while on the train. We're both pleased with the quality of the product.

would be lost without it!
This compact,little lifesaver is a daily,organizational essential for me. I use it daily and use it throughout my day as a reference,for notes,as a reminder of meeting agenda items,important deadlines and topics to review with staff---the uses are endless. It's small size makes it so handy and portable. The surface is firm and easy to use as a support when writing notes. The look is neat and stylish. I love it!

I (female) received a shirt-pocket briefcase as a gift more than 10 years ago. It's ALWAYS in my purse & provides a great writing surface for the home-printed 3x5 sheets of paper I use for calling cards or notes. I wondered when I first received it how it could possibly be of much use to me, but now I wouldn't be without it. -- And after years of use, it looks almost as good as new.

Excellent product that met my needs.
This item was exactly what I was looking for to hold a small number of 3X5 cards. My requirement demanded the case to be leather, have a professional, manly and stylish look, and be transportable in my dress shirt pocket. The black leather pocket briefcase exceeded all my expectations. I previously purchased a bomber leather pocket briefcase, but gave it to a coworker who admired it. He carried his 3X5 cards held together by a small alligator clip in his shirt pocket. Being senior, I needed one just a bit more elegant and the smooth black leather case was perfect.

Love this case -- Flat, stylish and seems very durable. Love the stitching instead of the usual "glued" cases on the market. Perfect for organizing notes and/or receipts.

This is perfect for taking quick notes with a touch of professionalism - the quality is great and like many other Levenger products, I love the smell of the leather... which my wife still laughs at, when she sees me smell it as soon as I open the package.

After several years of great service my pocket briefcase finally wore out. Being the loyal levenger customer over the years as i have been, i wanted to replace it with a new one .
I now find out that you have changed the product and no longer have the slot in the back for business cards. Now i guess i have to carry a business card holder.
