    Mine is scheduled to be delivered today. I'll try to get some photos up in the next day or two with my first impressions.

    Here are a few photos. I ordered the CXL #8. Love the color. The leather is very thick and stands up well. The strap is fantastic and the zipper seems very solid. I'll post a follow up in another week or so after I get a chance to use it.

    I'd love to see how those age. Chromexcel seems to scuff very easily (though they rub out easily too).

    So upset with myself for not acting on this. That bag is beautiful...

    Ohhhh man i love this! I feel like their marketing pics didn't even do it any justice.

    Th hardware is enormously overbuilt, and the leather is super thick, and super buttery.

    As a leather nerd I have some major apreesh for this bag.

    I made an imgur folder for pics of it. They are here:

    Yep. I'm pretty astonished at how great the leather is. And the hardware is fantastic. I still can't believe the price on this briefcase. They could charge twice as much and it would be a good deal. (Don't tell them I said that.)

    My big question was "is it big enough to put a pair of shoes in?". I commonly motorcycle in to work and bring my work shoes in a backpack.

    And the answer is YES. As long as you're not over a size 12.

    Outstanding! Now you just need the Gustin motorcycle jacket in CXL #8.
