In the previous article, I mainly said the style of the briefcase. If you haven’t read it, you can review it:

Let’s talk about materials and brand choices.
The material is durable or not that important. The choice of top leather has its own culture and historical standards.
In terms of durability, the leather is definitely not as good as nylon fiber, not to mention special materials such as “bulletproof fiber”. But out of taste, I’m afraid you only have the choice of leather.
But there are grades in the leather material.
1. The worse in the leather is the compressive skin.
Cruckets with pressure pattern generally do not choose good quality head layer skin, or they are covered with compressive tattoos in the epidermal injury; either using two layers of leather/three layers to simulate the original cortex or make a modern sensation method The pattern, often with cross patterns, bark patterns, etc. Because there are more hard coatings on the surface, this leather is abrasion -resistant and anti -scratch. However, quality and cost obviously …
Litchi pattern cowhide is similar to the above, but the surface does not use hard coatings, and the flowers are used to cover up some epidermis problems. Both of these two types
Light luxury brand
Water wave pattern cowhide
2. The most worth choice is the native head skin.
It basically retains the epidermis layer, a natural texture, comfortable feel, and beautiful texture, without having to do any pressure treatment. Note that it is from leather shoes to leather goods, all
Niche high -end product
Commonly used leather.
3. If you are very concerned about durability, use cowhide as an example, you can choose a horse’s leather and saddle leather with high durability in the cowhide. These two kinds of leather are also traditional high -end handmade leather goods that like to use very much.
The stables are the most durable cowhide. It is used to make reins. Naturally, it needs very good tensile resistance. The thickness is thicker (3.5-4.0mm), which can be used as a high-intensity polishing, and the buns made with a horse leather are very beautiful;
Compared with the Maen leather, the saddle leather is better elastic and soft (sitting on the moment for a long time, how elasticity is not good). The saddle leather is slightly thinner (2.5-4.0mm). Whether it is a horse or saddling, it can not be added without the skin. As shown in the figure below, Shibo Shooting, exquisite finished saddle leather goods.
Regarding brands, you have two options: Volkswagen luxury brands and niche high -end brands.
First, luxury goods are naturally good for luxury goods.
Luxury brands have high visibility, brand ringing, and high recognition. Under normal circumstances, luxury bags are a good choice. And it is easy to buy, the penetration rate of luxury counter is very high.
But the choice of luxury brands is also limited:
1. The choice of style and leather types is relatively narrow
Luxury goods are facing the public (except for private customization). The market is always “explosive”. For example, whether it is LV or GUCCI, the old flower skin has been enduring, but it is not suitable for the official briefcase of a mature man.
What is the bag that is in line with traditional culture? A few years ago, I saw a vegetable tanning bag in the LV shop very good, and I have never seen it since then. According to tellers, it is a spot with very small output, which will not be released once in several years. I guess it should be a test, and I found that this kind of bag could not be recognized by the market, so I gave up.
2. Under the same quality, the price of luxury brands is more expensive than niche manual brands
I have written some views on luxury brands. I personally divide good products into high -level products, luxury goods and top products. In terms of quality, some senior products are similar to most luxury goods, while the top quality is significant; in terms of price, most
Below than luxury goods, very few are higher than luxury goods. If the cost -effectiveness, the vast majority
They are much higher than luxury goods.
In addition to paying for the goods, the consumer luxury goods also pay more for the brand premium.
In fact, the quality of many niche brands is really worse than luxury goods.
If you want to recommend a big brand,
Among the well -known brands, I think LV and Hermes are worth choosing, after all, it is professional to make leather.
For LV, it is not recommended to choose the most common old flower skin. I think it is not suitable for men and is too eye -catching. It is suitable for work without striking logo or patterns. For example, the following figures are the most conservative on the left, the middle is very modern, and the right side is in the middle. It is exactly the choice of three different ages.
Below the price reference on the official website, the double -handle hand -made withdrawal of about 2910 US dollars (about RMB 20100);
The flip is more expensive, $ 4850 (about 33,500 yuan). Maybe it is to meet the needs of most people. This flip -capped briefcase LV still has a strap to it, or that view.
Hermes, those who like to turn on models can choose these two: Hermès SAC A Depeche (left), Kelly Depeche (right).
The new Hermès SAC A Depeche starts from $ 8,400 (about 58,000 yuan). It will be much cheaper to buy second -hand.
The price of double -handle hand -made withdrawal is relatively expensive, starting from US $ 10,000 (about 69,000 yuan), and a picture of the official website is also referenced.
There is also a niche Delvaux, the Belgian royal royal brand, founded in 1829, has a good heritage. Although the popularity is not as good as the above two brands, the quality is not lost. In particular, the most representative Newspaper Bag in his family, do n’t do it, you can buy them to take care of formal clothes and leisure.
There are also several brands, such as Moynat, which was founded in 1849 (the old French customized leather goods brand, was acquired by LVMH Group), and Valextra, which was founded in Italy in 1937, also has a good style to choose from.

Second, another choice is some niche -level handmade leather goods brands.
The niche brand is lower -key, which is in line with the concept of going to logo in the taste of high -level traditional consumer goods;
In the European and American upper class, which often consume top -level products, it is recognized for niche brands;
Compared with Volkswagen luxury goods, niche brands are more cost -effective.
For example, such as saddling leather, special leather materials are calculated among Volkswagen luxury packages, which is relatively rare. I did an inaccurate online survey before. The only brands that determined that the commonly used saddle leather were Hermès, but buying the Malessa’s saddle bag may need to be distributed (settled), and the price was particularly high. The second -hand Hermès Saders sold on online sales will be sold to nearly 30,000.
If you choose a niche brand of the same material, the price of the new product is about 18,000. The price differences of the same material/quality are still quite large. Do not worry about the brand small, these brands often have either obtained the British royal family certification, or they are undergoing the British royal family certification (testing period).
If you recommend a brand, I personally do n’t recommend SAB, the most famous old brand. In recent years, the brand quality has declined, and their oversized old -fashioned practices are not delicate. If you don’t know the brand, the value of it may not be high from the appearance.
Just say a few:
1. Simpson London
, Very young British high -end handmade customized leather goods brand, founded in 1997. It has always provided customers with accurate private customization services in the form of a studio, and its fame is not low. Later, he was acquired by the British WRA group and cooperated with the group’s William & Son (the brand has the queen’s authorized royal certification) to provide customized handmade leather goods for this comprehensive clothing brand.
Because their home is customized, the speed can be imagined, and it is more troublesome to buy.
2. Another ETtinger is also good
, Britain’s relatively niche handmade leather goods brand, founded in 1934, has the authorization certification of Prince Charles. The style goes through the traditional British fan, as large as a briefcase and a small money clip.
Although ETTINER is niche, quality, craftsmanship, materials and prices are worthy of British manufacturing. Ma Mage, a rare leather bag, has nearly 30,000 Hermes bags close to Hermes. Ettinger is only 18,000, which is much cheaper.
The niche brand does not recommend it. Anyway, you don’t care if you say too much (my writing is so good).
In addition to daily briefcases, short -distance travel bags for business trips are also particular.
My suggestion is to travel short -distance, you can not use the tie box, you do n’t need it. The leather handbag is more grade.
Let’s talk about it next time.
