If you’re prepared to splash some serious cash on a briefcase that’s going to see you through multiple seasons in style, here’s our pick of the five best Louis Vuitton briefcases for your consideration.
1. Louis Vuitton Robusto Briefcase
Designed by Louis Vuitton artistic director Virgil Abloh, the Robusto Briefcase means business. With its distinguished style and its superb craftsmanship, this is a bag designed for the gentleman who prefers the finer things in life. Crafted from sumptuous Taiga embossed cowhide leather in an understated shade of khaki, it’s smart, it’s sophisticated, and it oozes charm. An adjustable leather handle and removable shoulder strap allow for easy transportation, while the combination of an inside duo pocket, inside zipped pocket, and back outside flat pocket offers plenty of space for papers and personal items. The design is completed with a cowhide leather trim, a textile lining, matte black hardware, and a signature pin lock. If you’re in the market for a versatile, practical bag with as much style as function, you won’t regret handing over the $3250 it takes to get your hands on one of these beauties.
2. Louis Vuitton Soft Trunk Briefcase
Robbreport.com ranks the Louis Vuitton Soft Trunk Briefcase as one of the five best briefcases on the market. It’s not hard to see why. Crafted from LV’s iconic Monogram Eclipse canvas in black and gray, the bag features a score of lust-worthy features, including boxy lines, cowhide leather trims, and a removable shoulder strap for extra carrying options. Multiple inside pockets, a durable textile lining, and a convenient zip closure system ensure easy, everyday practicality.
3. Louis Vuitton Steamer PM
As tradesy.com writes, Louis Vuitton has been making bags and luggage for over 150 years. With an estimated worth of $28 billion, it’s one of the most valuable luxury brands in the world. Its bags and trunks are renowned for their craftsmanship, their beauty, their style, and their sophistication. But regardless of how big and varied its collection is, and no matter how great each and every one of its creations is, there’s always going to be a couple of LV bags that are just a little bit better than the rest. A hallowed few that make the jump from great to extraordinary, the leap from popular to iconic. The Steamer is one of those lucky few. Based on an original design from 1901, the briefcase is crafted from a soft Taiga leather featuring a rainbow marking, the new signature of Artistic Director, Virgil Abloh. With its roomy pockets, its generous proportions, and its adjustable handle, the bag is every bit as practical as it is beautiful.
4. Louis Vuitton Porte-Documents Voyage
Louis Vuitton doesn’t make cheap bags. If you’re on a shoestring budget, this might not be the brand for you. But even if you’re well versed in the brand’s price list and have been saving for years in anticipation, the price of the Porte-Documents Voyage might take you by surprise. If you haven’t yet seen the price tag, then brace yourself. Ready? $55,500. In some cities, that would be enough to get you a house. It would definitely be enough to get you a car. Actually, make that three cars. But at Louis Vuitton, it’ll get you a briefcase. In fairness, it’s a very nice briefcase. Some may even say it’s a beautiful briefcase. Roomy, functional, and packed with exquisite details, this is a refined bag for men with refined tastes. Crafted in Ombré natural leather embellished with a subtle patina that just gets better with age, it drips with sophistication. Its sturdy, rounded handles make it a dream to carry, while the removable leather strap can be adjusted for an outstanding fit. Functionality comes by way of the main compartment with a zipped closure and padlock, 1 internal duo flat pocket, 1 internal flat pocket, and 1 internal zipped pocket. It’s practical, it’s extremely easy on the eye, and it’s about to blow a massive hole in your bank account.
5. Louis Vuitton Armand Briefcase
If $5100 sounds like a reasonable price for a bag to you, then cast your eyes in the direction of the Armand briefcase from Louis Vuitton. Crafted from exquisitely supple, deceptively durable leather, it’s got all the hallmarks of a classic LV creation. The expert craftsmanship is there, the premium materials are there, the faultless attention to detail is there, and the eye-watering price tag is there (although in fairness, and as we’ve already seen, there are plenty of far more expensive LV briefcases around). The leather that’s gone into its construction is Ombré calf leather, a material that’s long been admired for its fine quality and the rich patina it develops over time. The bag has been trimmed in cowhide leather and lined with microfiber, both of which add extra durability to the already sturdy design. Functionality comes by way of an outside pocket with magnetic closure, an inside iPad pocket, an inside double-flat pocket, a padlock, and a key holder. A double, removable, and fully adjustable strap completes the look. When you combine the premium quality of the leather with the refined detailing, the outstanding functionality, and the sophisticated design, it’s clear that this is a bag that’s been built to stand the test of time.
