Picking The Perfect Briefcase For The Man In Your Life

How To Choose The Perfect Men's Leather Briefcase

Is anyone else sort of in love with men’s briefcases? I’m not sure what it is, but I love the look of a leather men’s briefcase. With Dylan blogging too, I’ve been able to get into men’s fashion more, and I love it! Today I’m excited to partner with Nordstrom to chat about picking the perfect briefcase for the man in your life.

A briefcase is one of those things that makes the perfect gift. If your husband or boyfriend has to dress up for work or business meetings, you can’t go wrong with investing in a good briefcase for them. There are also a ton of casual briefcases if your man prefers a more casual style.

Nordstrom has an amazing selection of them at all times, and I’ve had my eyes on this specific briefcase by Frye for over a year now. Honestly the price is higher than I would spend on a purse for myself, but I feel differently about a briefcase for some reason. We have a friend who’s dad handed him down his old briefcase, and it looks a lot like this one. It’s leather, and has a vintage feel to it. I can totally see Dylan using this briefcase for years, and then handing it down to Noah when he is older. The style is timeless, and I think the quality of it will hold up really well over the years. Plus, how cute would that be to carry around your dad’s briefcase!?

Nordstrom also carries a very similar briefcase that is about half of the price by Fossil. One of the main differences is that the Fossil one has a canvas strap, whereas the Frye briefcase has a leather strap. If you’re looking for a similar option that isn’t quite as expensive, the Fossil briefcase is great! If the man in your life prefers more casual pieces I would opt for a canvas bag. Dylan has a canvas backpack that he uses all of the time. This one by Filson is great, and I also love this one by Fossil. Either would be perfect, it just depends on which color you like better!

Dylan’s entire outfit is actually from Nordstrom. We found his tie for only $19! I just love navy blue ties for some reason. His shoes are under $100, and match the briefcase perfectly. His dress shirt is under $70, and comes in multiple colors and sizes. His pants are the perfect work pants, and they are under $100. They also come in a bunch of colors! I linked everything above as well!



I hope I’ve helped narrow down the search if you’re looking for something special to pick up for your man. Heck, even if you only get that $19 tie, you’re helping his style game, lol. Thanks so much for stopping by today babes!
