Bomber Jacket International Pocket Briefcase
My New Best Friend
This pocket folio replaced my money clip-card wallet to incorporate personalized note cards that enable me to be ready to take notes at any time. Sure you can take notes on your phone, but it's impersonal and can be distracting.
Be ready, be professional and present yourself with a classic tool.

Replacement for a long life Intl Pocket Briefcase
I bought this as a replacement for a black one that I have carried everywhere since about 2005. Already having purchased a Bomber Jacket style wallet and Circa folio, I figured I would give this one a try.
Overall, I like the look and feel of the leather, but would have liked to get the "old" style version that did not have the money and document pocket on the top. This makes the Briefcase a bit thicker and more difficult to drop into the back pocket of most of my pants.
Still, one of the classiest ways to take notes out there.....

Good pocket notepad with cover
This is the 3rd addition to my Bomber Jacket collection. I am happy with the style and quality but the function could be better utilized with the integration of the 3x5 notepad instead of the individual cards. A top flap cover like on the folio would be ideal as well, but overall with all of the compartments and top quality, this should work well.

Very nice, but too big for shirt pocket
I bought this and thought it was very nice. Quality very high. But I thought I was buying a pocket briefcase for a shirt pocket, and this one is WAY too big and thick for a shirt pocket. I returned it and exchanged it for the flat one. Upon further review online, there is a distinction between the "pocket" briefcase and the "shirt pocket" briefcase...I suggest Levenger try to distinguish more clearly...perhaps calling one a "shirt pocket" briefcase and the other a "suit pocket" briefcase.

A great wallet
The product looks good, holds a Parker Jotter (my favorite pen), and is just fine handling Levenger note cards.
So on the front, opened toward you.... you have on the right a notepad with a pocket behind for more note cards. On the left you have the twin for the rightward card pocket, but it isn't quite right for note cards. On top of that pocket you have another long pocket, and on top of that you have 2 credit card slots, and 1 for I.D. Across the top there 2 pockets, the one closest is for currency, and behind is one that goes the full depth of the wallet.
This is actually a pocket briefcase. If you acquire one, I hope you will enjoy it, and if you are thinking about other "pocket briefcases" I urge you to buy this one instead, and by that I mean over and above other Levenger products.

Doesn't hold 3x5 cards well
I've used a pocket brief case for years. My original finally gave up and I purchase the Bomber Jacket model. It is very nice cosmetically, but it has a significant design flaw, the leather that overlaps the card just barley captures the paper, aprox1/8" on each end. this is both generic and Levenger cards. The normal friction in my pocked dislodges the card and I've lost cards this way. I have a work around, a plastic sheet that is 5.5' that is over the top of the cards. Not ideal but I really need the pocket capability. I would not buy another one and eventually will have a local leather worker make a similar product that works.

I replaced my pocket briefcase with this International Briefcase. I found this too bulky for everyday pocket carry unless I am wearing a coat.
I am planning on taking it to a leather repair shop to remove the lined stash pocket & currency pocket to make it thinner.
Still, a very practical, quality wallet, and would still recommend. No regrets.

A bit bulky- no pen included
This product is the usual Levenger good quality. It is somewhat bulky for just taking notes but perhaps the extra heft is good if using it as a wallet. I expected the item to come with a pen as that is how it is pictured. When one was not included I contacted customer service. After some checking they verified a pen was not included, even though it was in the picture of the item. The customer service representative politely suggested I should not use the pictures but to carefully read the product description.

I was not expecting a wallet as much as a note pad holder with room for a couple of other things inside. There should be a picture of the "money" area, this adds to the bulk. My mistake having it personalized, so it can't be returned. The quality is great but it will be gathering dust in the closet.
