This leather is reminiscent of equestrian leather halter straps. I also use half centimeter thick mooseskin. Nothing wimpy here; quality and character that stands out and stands the test of a truly rugged lifestyle. Invest in a bag that you'll love more and more over time.Not all leather bags are created the same. A great quality leather bag is supposed to look better with time as the leather acquires marks and age-related wear. Make sure to check out my whole store. At the time of this listing, I have 180 items all unique and different. Once you have tried it you will wonder how you functioned before without an inside handle. Also on many of my briefcases, I add a mooseskin handle wrap. The handle is the point of contact that the owner has with their bag and mooseskin is so pleasing to touch.
My philosophy in writing descriptions is: a picture speaks 1000 words. That said, here is my description. What I love about this bag is that it is handmade by the Swiss leather crafters who are known as the masters of this era. The leather unlike most other bags of this era does not crack; it is truly amazing.
This leather is like the horween leather for those of you who are familiar with that leather. I love the fact that this bag is stamped with the name of the person who made it: Hans Jaggi Rohrbach from Bern Switzerland.
The year it was made is also stamped "45" meaning the year 1945. The quality of this piece is so striking. You will not be disappointed. I have modified this bag from it's original purpose as a motor cycle pannier bag set.
The shoulder strap is made from a repurposed mens belt with antique solid brass clips and is removable. I have modified this case by changing it from a saddle bag connected to another saddle bag and to be used on a motorcycle as a pannier set.I have made a beautiful leather strap out of an old repurposed mens belt with antique solid brass clips. It really is the perfect leather MacBook Pro 15 inch (or smaller) case in my opinion. I have strengthened up the stress points on this bag giving it durability for years to come. Literally giving it an heirloom quality; you can pass it on to your kids! If you are not familiar with pounded copper rivets, they are a really old school re-enforcement that us next to impossible to remove. Some world history facts from the year this bag was made. What Happened in 1945 Important News and Events, Key Technology and Popular Culture. What happened in 1945 Major News Stories include USS Indianapolis is sunk by Japanese Submarine, War In Europe Ends May 7th (V-E Day), Adolf Hitler and his wife of one day, Eva Braun, commit suicide, Harry S.

It truly is amazing that a bag that is 74 years old can be in such wonderful "ready for everyday use" condition. It would really surprise me if this bag does not make it to 100 or even 120. This bag has the true vintage look which is so popular today.
It says without saying anything that you like quality and, are not afraid to be different. I imagine a business professional who appreciates the rugged antique vintage look taking this to a meeting.
It is sure to get comments and compliments. The measurements, in inches, are approximately: 15 x 11 x 2.5.
As shown in the photos: This bag fits my mock-up wooden 15" MacBook Pro 2017 with the measurements of 13.75" x 9.48" x Thickness 0.61" It may fit a bit larger laptop so please contact me if you want me to measure for your specific laptop.

Now with our tech (tablets and small laptops) getting smaller, we can carry vintage style bags instead of the "run-of-the-mill" bags being produced in the 21st century. I have this bag listed as a man's bag.
