The Bridge Briefcases
View our Bridge Briefcases on our shopping website www.leathergoods-online.com
The Bridge Briefcases are all available here in our shop in Bradford, West Yorkshire, we think we are one of the few authorised retailers covering the Leeds area too.
The Bridge was established in Florence in Italy back in 1969 – it is probably word of mouth brand that you don’t see in major high street stores, it has a quality luxury niche at a reasonable price compared to the major brands out there.
Their trade mark is a Chesnut coloured leather that is tanned and dued using tree bark and leaves over many days in Oak barrels – a very traditional way of doing things these days.
The leather is then hand finished using a tradtional amber roller application which is rarely seen in modern production methods.
The Bridge briefcases come in many different forms, this is a simple classic double gusset briefcase with a dingle leather handle.
The rear side of the briefcase has a zipped pocket – ideal for document storage. The rear pockets ae usually lined in a tough hard wearing cotton. On alot of the bridge models you will find a trolley strap too – handy to slip over the handle on one of those wheel luggae trolleys you get these days, in fact the bridge do a really nice cabin size wheeled trolley, will come on to that when I get a little time
You will see the inside is just buff leather – basically there is no lining to the briefcase, this gives it durability as there is no fabric to wear or rip during use. There is a cotton mobile phone pocket and a slip pocket on the rear face of the back gusset.
The bridge briefcases generally come with a detachable shoulder strap, sometimes cotton, sometimes leather, this really depends upon the price and complexity of the model.
The fittings on the straps and handles are generally solid brass – looks real classy, embossed stamped with the Bridge logo too. The strap below is the cotton one, should you wish it is possible to buy the solid leather one as an alternative, we can’t swap them though.
Black ? Yes we can get black for you, we do a small range of black bridge briefcases.
Generally what comes in the classic brown can come in the black too, special orders can be placed but they can take up to 4 months to get.
The Black models usually have a platinum metal finish on the fittings, a nice complement to the black leather.
The shoulder strap is in black cotton too.
