Luxurious leather Gladstone bag: the classic English portmanteau for business, travel—and of course Prime Ministers

Original price was: £250.00.Current price is: £127.00.

A good leather bag is the kind of investment you make once and then enjoy for pretty much the rest of your life. A bag that is so smartly designed, so sturdy, so strokable and so perfect that you look forward to packing it and carrying it around.
This new Gladstone is just that kind of bag. It is a bag you will find in ‘Gentleman’s London’, made by hand using materials that are as hard-wearing as they are luxurious, with thick, rich, oiled ‘pull up’ leather creating its smart appearance and robust nature, and which will simply improve in patina with age. And once you take a closer look at all the good ideas and expert craftsmanship that have gone into it, you’ll understand why it’s such a standout.
The Gladstone bag is a symbol of Britain, a small portmanteau which made its name as the preferred bag of prime ministers, Gladstone in particular, whose own hinged luggage was made by J G Beard in Westminster.
Our smart Gladstone has the classic shape and hinged frame, giving wide, easy access to a spacious main compartment. It is comfortable to carry, using either a detachable leather shoulder strap with padded grip, or the easy-grip carry handle, and there is a trolley strap on the back. It has handy exterior zipped pockets, and internal leather trimmed stationery and phone organisers. Five metal studs at the base keep it high off the ground.
It is a perfect size for everyday business and travel use at 39cm (15in) wide, 30cm (11 3/4in) high and 21cm (8 1/4in) wide.
