When you’re not traveling for pleasure, not everything fits into your carry-on. And when you’re traveling for business, you want to look like you mean business. So we’ve rounded up a few briefcases that will serve you well today, tomorrow and for the foreseeable future, whether you’re a jet-setting exec, or just starting out your office career.

1. Filson Original Briefcase

If you need a briefcase that can take the punishment of constant business travel, then you’re going to want to take a look at the Original Briefcase from Filson. It’s made in the USA from a 22 ounce twill that repels water and abrasion, and may actually out live you. Best of all, it comes in a dark navy, tan and olive green, as well as the black you see above. Oh, and it has a ton of pockets for all your travel gear, including room for a 15-inch laptop.


2. Tumi Landon Leather Bradmoor Slim Briefcase

We’ve mentioned this one before and for good reason — it’s made by Tumi, so you know it’s a proper attaché case. But it doesn’t look like your typical Tumi bag, which is a win-win for any fashion conscious individual. It’s a gorgeous leather bag with a motif that adds character and whimsy without looking too young or dated. Don’t let this one pass you by.


3. Louis Vuitton Monogram Pegase Briefcase

To say that Louis Vuitton is making a comeback would be an incorrect statement. But to say that LV is more culturally relevant would be more accurate. Recent collaborations with Supreme and Fragment Design and an upcoming collection with Jeff Koons prove the brand knows how to appeal to both its existing brand loyalists, as well as with younger demos.

Rather than give in to the hype, go with something a bit more classic like this vintage Monogram Pegase Briefcase. It’s been beautifully restored and will never go out of style.
