Original Marcellino Latch Briefcases​

The Marcellino Latch is a Signature Design originally created for my attorney clients many years ago.  It is a simple, easy and very strong way to close a briefcase.  My first clients were lawyers all over New York.  They wanted a fine handmade authentic style classic bridle leather briefcase to represent who they were, so they would work closely with me to construct a bespoke piece.  They wear a suit all day, meeting with clients or in court so they needed something professional, durable, and above all easy to open and close.  After many strength tests, style variations, and customer feedback I have created The Marcellino Latch Design, the only strong and classic like a buckle mechanism that is much easier to open and close.

The Marcellino latch design was so popular that it gained the attention of the CNBC TV show Billion Dollar Buyer. When Tilman Fertita, the Billionaire owner of Landry’s corporation, The Golden Nugget Hotels and The Houston Rockets personally evaluated the design at the Marcellino workshop, he loved the latch so much that he placed a $140,000.00 order for handbags and briefcases with the Marcellino latch.  These n negotiations can be seen on the TV Show.
