There are a lot of leather bags available online or at your local leather goods retailer – some good, some not so good. So if you’re reading this, you’ve been asking yourself, “what makes a Jack Georges bag special?” It’s a fair question. After all, unless you’re in the industry, how do you really know? Jack takes a few minutes to tell us about some of the features found in the Belting Collection Triple Gusset Top Zip Briefcase (#9002) to explain what separates his bags from others in the market.
Jack Georges offers a wide of variety of leathers in different colors and textures. The hides are predominantly from the U.S. and Italy. In the video, he uses an example made from belting leather which is renown for quickly building character and beauty as it ages. This American leather was originally used to drive pulleys and machinery where its strength and flexibility were second to none. Along with durability, the appeal of this full-grain leather is that it builds a rich patina with use – every mark, every scratch, and every stain on this leather tells a story which has made it particularly popular with generations of litigators.
A quality bag is only as good as the sum of its parts. That’s why jack Georges uses high quality materials to prolong the life and value in your investment.
Using a full leather lining adds durability, style, protection, and integrity to the leather briefcase while protecting the items carried inside the bag.
A bonded nylon thread is used in the construction of Jack Georges leather goods to prevent fraying and increase the life of each piece.
Having a quality zipper that will not break or get tangled with regular use is important. Using a self-healing nylon zipper ensures that most snags caused by items caught in the zipper when it is closed will not damage the zipper and allow it the ability to open and close.
Reliability is key when you’re on the move, this bag uses solid brass hardware to secure the adjustable leather strap with the shoulder supports to alleviate any uncertainty when maneuvering through bustling crowds of commuters or travelers.
Most leather bags will lose their shape overtime due to the constant stretching of the leather. For items where the bag should retain its shape, Jack Georges uses a full metal frame to support the leather and maintain the integrity of the briefcase through the years.
From the Nylon Bonded stitching to the rounded edges that resist breaking (or what’s referred to as dog-ears), you can be assured that Jack Georges construction is an industry benchmark.
No leather briefcase is complete without an Organizer to hold your essentials. Zippered interior dividers and open outside pockets provide plenty of room for your files, folders, and documents.
While having a great quality leather bag shows pride in who you are and what you do, it is not about excess luxury. A quality leather bag is actually a long term investment that saves you money because lesser bags have short lifespans and replacing them regularly will become expensive over time. Rest assured, Jack Georges will provide you with a fine quality leather bag that you can be proud in an investment that is designed to last a lifetime.
