The mini brief is a small 9″ x 7″ version of Joseph’s iconic Marcellino Latch Briefcase.  This bag style is carefully hand stitched  with a structured frame that fits across the body.  It is made with fine embossed Italian calf leather, has a suede lining, a marcellino latch, slip in pocket and an adjustable shoulder strap.

This bag has been made in a number of different types of leather.  We encourage you to have one custom made to your style and the leather colors that you like.  reach out to Joe to try and source your favorite leather, real alligator. pink patent leather, soft lambskin, patterned cow, bridle leather, etc.

In this listing there are a variety of different colors of leather to inspire from the older styles.  Any new style made will look like the new red Embossed Alligator Style with a square flap cut.

This bag was originally developed for Tilman Fertitt when the Marcellino’s were on Billion Dollar Buyer.

    My husband purchased one of these for me in red when we were at the Golden Nugget hotel. I love the leather and craftsmanship. The latch is very simple to use. We also watched your show and you guys did fantastic.

    I have the naked leather version. Purchased from the GN hotel. the retail staff were great and knowledgeable. They really talked Joe’s craftsmanship up at the store. It took some time to get used to the latch and the older version that had the loop and chain. I wish I had the newer style that has the loop on the bag, but i still love my mini brief and the patina that is forming.

    When your wife introduced this bag to Tilman on Billion Dollar Buyer I knew he would love it. I’m glad he bought them from you. They look incredible. Good luck.

    I have the color block in red and black and I use it every day. It is the perfect size with a small pocket inside. I don’t use it as a handbag much. It is always around my body and the best thing is the buckle latch because it allows me to get in and out really easy.

    All your bags are exceptional but you guys have to work on your timeline. I understand these are made to order but i had to wait almost 5 weeks, that is why the 4 stars.

    I saw you on a rerun of the Billion Dollar Buyer the other night. Your bags were amazing so I decided to find your website. I am truly impressed with your styling, design, and craftsmanship. Although pricey, they are simply awesome!!!!! I love a large bag, but I will have to purchase a small one. Simply beautiful!!
