Never underestimate the importance of a good ole briefcase. Sure there's an element of briefcases that can seem a bit classic and very much give off "the 1990s businessman/lawyer in the movies that slams his briefcase on the desk and opens it dramatically to indicate he's found something important," but like other classic fashion staples, briefcases have elevated in recent years to look much more modern. In the real world not only do briefcases automatically command respect and indicate you're a guy who's very serious about what he does, they also serve as a compliment to your suits, blazers, and can even call attention to those super polished dress shoes you're rocking. Today we're going to be taking a look at the best briefcases for men to look their sartorial spiffy best.
Whether it's our best overall choice, the Herschel Gibson Briefcase, $74.59, or the L.L. Bean Stonington Daily Carry Work Bag ($119)—which can also double as a travel bag should you have to hit the airport right after your important meeting—these are some of the best you'll currently find on the market.
