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 is the colour of true classic attaché cases - deep nut. The exterior is made using traditional English bridle leather in beautiful dark brown and for the interior you can choose between red, green or blue long grain skiver or natural suede. Then choose the colour of the Ettinger logo inside - 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. Although our attaché cases come with keys, please do ask about combination locks, should you wish to have that instead. You can also choose to add on the option of having feet on the attaché case. 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.
