It may just be us, but it’s hard to ignore the back to school feeling hovering in the air at this time of year. As summer’s frivolities end, and the serious business of work starts up again, why not up your office look with a few new pieces? Fortunately, in place of Oxford Mathematics sets and itchy name-tagged socks, we’re talking soft goat leather portfolios; neat colour-trimmed pencil cases and notebook holders; and, of course, the ultimate briefcase collection.
If you don’t like carrying a bag or briefcase, what are you to do with the laptops, iPads, phones, notepads, business cards, and other paraphernalia that you carry from meeting to meeting? This is where the Portfolio will become your new best friend.
Choose the large zipped Capra Portfolio, made from our elegant, yet super-hard wearing goat leather, which comes in marine blue, black, white or tan. Or for a bolder look, it has to be a Bridle Hide Portfolio, whose nine, bright exteriors are set off with a contrasting lining in Ettinger Tan.
If it’s a more modern style statement you’re after, try the sleek, contemporary Envelope Portfolio – a favourite with stylists. Or, if you’re looking for a briefcase style, but without the bulk, why not take a look at the Metropolitan Bakerloo Portfolio Case.
Pens, Pouches and Stationery
Although it isn’t actually the start of term (thank goodness those days are behind us!), you still need somewhere to store your stationery – no one likes a messy desk. And we all know that a smart Notebook Cover sets you apart from those with a simple ragged pad of paper.
From bright pen cases and zip-up pouches to colour trimmed notepad covers in black or tan, and leather pencil cases to match, Ettinger can sharpen up your pencil game – no pun intended.
Trends aside, sometimes there is nothing like the real deal. Which is why our stylish leather briefcases still occupy a special place in our sartorial heart.
Whether you prefer the casual canvas cool of our Pursuits bags, the understated look of our timeless Mayfair or Westminster Heritage styles or can only see yourself carrying one of our classic, hand-stitched Attaché Cases, there is sure to be something in the collection to suit your tastes.
Whatever your style, adding a few refined pieces to your office-set-up will complete the look of a well-rounded businessperson who knows where they’re going. Explore the Ettinger range at your leisure, here.
