In the 1930s, Gerry Ettinger made himself a unique attaché case, which was slightly smaller than the established classic and much lighter, but still big enough to hold all his paperwork. This elegant attaché case is still used today by Robert Ettinger, his son, proving its extraordinary durability. Through its many years of use and appropriate care it has acquired an incomparable patina, making it even more attractive. In fact, Gerry Ettinger has proved to be a visionary, as our customers today prefer this smaller and lighter frame to the traditional attache cases. Whilst staying true to our heritage and over 80 years of experience in making traditional attaché cases, we always work on improving our classic cases to suit the modern needs.
This smooth hazelnut brown attaché case is handmade in England, using the traditional English bridle leather for the exterior. It is slightly lighter in colour than the traditional nut to suit the modern style. For the interior choose between red, green or blue long grain skiver or natural suede. The Ettinger logo is placed inside of the lid and you can choose this in gold, silver or blind emboss. We use only the very best brass locks and fittings to ensure that every part lasts as long as the leather. You can also choose to add on the option of having feet on the attaché case (please get in touch should you wish to add this option). For the final touch, choose your initials, which will be placed under the handle to make this attaché truly yours.
The unique craftsmanship required to make it means that we can only make a few at a time, so please allow around 10 weeks for delivery.
Outside leather: bridle hide
Inside leather: choice of 3 colours of skiver or natural suede
