The perfect version of the traditional attaché case is this - the St James Lid-Over Attaché Case with Multi-Pocket in deep tones of nut. It truly combines the best parts of the traditional frame with the needs of busy everyday business. The case is slightly smaller and lighter than it's original Bank version, yet allows enough space to fit all your necessities in there. The multi-pocket will keep your documents, iPads, tablets, cards and pens all organised and separated. 

The exterior of the case is made using the traditional bridle leather and you can choose between four leathers for the interior - green, blue, red skiver or natural pig suede. We use the very best brass locks and fittings to ensure that every last part lasts as long as the leather. 

This case is made-to-order especially for you. 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. Because this attaché case is made-to-order, please do ask about any additional details you may wish to have such as initials or feet (please get in touch should you wish to add this option).

Traditional English Bridle Hide

The most English of all leathers, traditional bridle hide is made using a lengthy and natural process involving centuries old tanning pits and painstaking hand-finishing. It is only in this way that we can achieve the thickness, durability and especially the distinctive look and feel of this traditional equestrian leather.


Skiver is a term commonly used to describe a dressed goat or sheep skin with a patterned embossing. Traditionally it is used as a lining and for book binding because it is very thin, supple and can have many effects applied onto it. We have ours glazed and embossed with a cross grain (also called paste grain) pattern and use this to line our attaché cases.

Pig Suede

Pig suede has a silky touch and is instantly recognisable thanks to the little dots caused by the pig’s follicles. Pig skin is naturally thin and supple but this is enhanced further by several mechanical processes to massage and soften up the leather, once the skins have been chrome tanned and dyed through.
Suede is in fact the flesh side of the skin, which has been finely trimmed and brushed. It is a beautiful leather for lining fine leather accessories and bags.
