Spotted previously on the odd hipster about town, the vintage briefcase is definitely having a moment. On a recent journey from Soho back to Shoreditch, these battered but much prized bags were definitely evident on the street. We’re not talking the hideously square items that out-of-town businessmen carry their dreary worlds in – seemingly designed to collide with kneecaps on the Tube. Softer, roomier styles are the ones to look out for – including the daddy of all briefcases commonly known as ‘the doctor bag’ or Gladstone. And you don’t even have to get your hands grubby rummaging through charity stock as there seems to be a healthy selection available online.
