Wallace – American Alligator



Beauty in American fine leather and master craftsmanship come together to build this entirely hand stitched American Alligator briefcase.  Such precision and detail in this classic briefcase form rarely exist.  We begin with 3 full-size American Alligator hides that make up the flap, front and back panel, gussets and the straps.  Middle divider is made with a thick English bridle leather to help give it stability and form.

There are 2 options to have this made:

  1. Hard Form – The most popular, because it maintains its shape like our traditional thick English bridle leather briefcases.  With the Hard Form we line the briefcase with a thick American Made bridle leather
  2. Soft Form – As seen in the pics and video.  The Soft Form is lined with Italian calf suede and is less ridged and over all has a softer feel to the bag.

Note: This briefcase is made with 3 Large Alligator hides so certain colors might be hard to source since we have to find 3 hides in excellent shape.  Black is a standard color an almost always available.  All of our briefcases are made to order so we do not buy hides in bulk.  When dealing with Alligators that are captured from the wild, it is not only hard to find hides excellent shape hides but also tanneries that make multiple non black colors and have them on hand.  If you order a color we will do our best to source it and if we can not find it we will ask you for another color choice.

Bonus: IF we have extra leather we will make a couple of Key Holders and a Credit Card Holder.
