I ordered from Pakistan and was happy to see the item shipped so soon. Having opened the package I was delighted to see the case. The colour was exactly what I was looking for, perfect tan, the finish is superb, the design is simply chic. Definitely worth the price even after paying custom duty at my end. I just love the briefcase. Thank you.

5 Beautiful product, incredible service
If you want to make a statement then this is a great piece to do it with. The craftsmanship is outstanding, and the service provided from start to finish was brilliant. I’m already looking at other products in the range!
5 Great Briefcase
I would definitely purchase from Maxwell Scott again. Bought 2 leather briefcases - the Basilio and the Paolo 2. Easy to use website, quick turnaround and delivery from UK to Melbourne. Very happy with the quality and presentation of the products. Will be a customer for life.
5 Special Message for Special Occasion
I ordered a briefcase for my husband the service was Amazing. I received it on time beautiful engraved and packed very well. They also added the message to say Happy 25th wedding Anniversary. I will definitely be ordering again and passing on to family and friends how great the quality and service is. Thanks again
5 This is a great bag.
This is a great bag. I was looking for something simple that would look good, hold my laptop, notebook, and other things while not looking bulky and this bag has perfectly fulfilled that need, in fact, it exceeded my expectations. If you wear a suit or dress business casual this bag will look impressive and make you look that much more professional. The hardest part was selecting between the Tan and the Dark Chocolate color, I went with the Dark Chocolate and am glad I did but just keep in mind it looks almost black under some lights so make sure you want something very dark. I've gone through 1 bag every 1 or 2 years and am certain this bag will be used for much much longer, easily 6+ so the price is more than reasonable. The only negative I can think of is that I wish it had more cardholder slots and maybe an internal zip pocket would be nice but not essential. Get this bag...

The product is great; the detail and quality is first class. I marked the speed of delivery as average, however to be honest you kept me informed and gave me the choice to select another product on a potentially shorter lead time. I'm glad I stayed with my original selection as it is a fantastic briefcase and laptop carrier.

I LOVE the briefcase. It is truly beautiful. I know my boyfriend will love it! Thanks.
5 Beautiful briefcase to last a lifetime
I bought this briefcase for my husband a while ago and he absolutely loves it. I actually went to the offices of the company and they could not have been more helpful. I was shown a couple of briefcases in different colours and chose this one in tan, which is a stunning colour. It is a beautifully made item and my husband was thrilled. It is very spacious and holds everything he needs including his tablet and files. Hopefully, it will last for years.
5 Excellent Service, Great Briefcase
Excellent communication with Charlotte throughout the entire process. Fast delivery with no problems. The briefcase is exactly as expected and looks great.

There are other briefcases that could probably compete in terms of practicality and durability but this item simply oozes class. If it is possible to have an everyday accessory that is a work of art, this is it. I cannot recommend it highly enough as an emblem of sophistication and understated good taste, not to mention that it is an extremely practical and workmanlike tool.
5 It has been excellent for three years; It will be excellent for a lifetime.
A graduation gift that has served me tremendously over the last three years. If there is a better briefcase out there, I have never seen it. Given how reliable and stylish this one is, I won't be looking for it.

This will certainly be an improvement from my last case. I am sure this will last 20 years too!

This briefcase appears to meet the requirements listed by the recipient, who will receive it next month as a birthday present. I am hoping to be still around in 10 - 20 years time when I shall ask him if he is satisfied!
5 great present for my husband
I just wanted to say thank you for the briefcase I ordered on Thursday and received Friday morning. It was a present for my (difficult to please) husband and he was actually very pleased with it! Your service was exceptional and the briefcase itself is beautifully made and presented.
5 A safe and pleasant buying experience!
This was a replacement for the Battista, which was beautiful but just a bit too small. The Paolo arrived next day after having received good advice on the phone and I love it. They are very helpful on the phone and I will certainly buy from Maxwell Scott again.

Excellent product. I received my leather briefcase last week and I am very pleased with it. I was actually stopped in the airport yesterday morning by a businessman asking where I'd bought this briefcase. I can only recommend this shop and hope to have this bag for many years.

I am so pleased with my purchase of the 'Paolo' briefcase. The quality is even better than I expected and it looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing how it ages over the years. I would highly recommend Maxwell Scott for high quality and stylish leather goods. Additionally, their customer service is excellent.
5 quality leather bag for work
I have been searching for a quality leather bag for work for a number of years now. I knew exactly what I wanted and struggled to find anything that ticked all of the boxes. Then I discovered this company and this bag and I have to say it was well worth the wait. The quality and construction of the bag is fantastic. The leather is of great quality, the stitching is robust, the fixings for the strap well made and give me the confidence that they won't fall apart after a matter of months. The handle is ergonomically designed and feels strong and comfortable. It has plenty of room for my work folders, small umbrella, keys, phones etc. as well as my daily gym kit and a packed lunch. I was looking for a bag to last me a lifetime and I think with this I may have found it. I was looking at a bag in M&S for around half this price, having picked that up again today I can see that would have been a waste of money. This is a great purchase and one that I expect to get many years from. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
5 People admire the workmanship and quality of the briefcase
I would just like to say that I recently purchased the above item, the delivery was exceptionally quick and the product is excellent. People admire the workmanship and quality of the briefcase and it provides an image of professionalism and does not look like a run of the mill briefcase. It is a quality item and when people ask where it is from I have no hesitation in passing on the supplier’s details (namely yourselves!) Thank you very much.
5 luxury and high quality leather briefcase
I was looking for a luxury and high quality leather briefcase for a long time. After one of my friend's recommendations, I decided to search Maxwell Scott’s website. There is a great variety of briefcases and I was looking for a classic one. As an academic the briefcase is a must! I am pleased with my choice. I have received positive comments from colleagues and family members. I strongly recommend Maxwell Scott!
5 Perfect Graduation Gift!

Amazing Bag. My husband is thrilled. Incredible service from your end, I couldn't fault you. Thank you.
5 A luxurious hand crafted product.
The briefcase is made from 100% Italian full-grain leather. The quality and the craftsmanship is exquisite. The leather finish is high quality while not being as stiff as a "Saddleback" product. The thread and hardware are well made and don't have that cheap made in china look and function. If you choose to buy, be aware of the color. What you see here is not exactly the color you receive. I ordered the TAN color and got a brown case. It is a beautiful color, though, but it is not TAN as you might think. It is like a chestnut brown without the reddish hue found in other briefcases. The chocolate is not chocolate it is a cordovan burgundy color - so beware if you don't want those colors. Inside light suede dividers with a three gusset compartment. A small pocket for a phone, my droid fits in there, two pen holders and a place for your business cards. In the rear gusset of the case are two slip pockets for placing papers receipts etc. Under the flap is a nice zippered pocket and the same with the exterior back of the bag is an outside zipper pocket. All in all I highly recommend this product. If you are a coinsurer of leather and traditional styling then this briefcase is for you. You won't be disappointed. The only con I would complain about is the strap. It is not adjustable and is about .75 inches wide with a small leather piece for your shoulder. For my height, it is fine (5'11") and I have to say the strap is very comfortable even under a full load. However, very minor compared to this bag overall. By the way. This ships from the UK and FedEx will notify you about customs and you will need to fill out a short form (took me 1 minute and no duty is owed) and fax it back to an agent at FedEx. I paid $8.95 USD for express shipping and received it in two days. Great company!!
5 Excellent Bag
I did a lot of research before ultimately going with the Maxwell Scott briefcase. To say the least, I'm not disappointed. It's a VERY high quality product and is absolutely in the same league as other bags I looked at that cost 3 and 4 times this one. The only tiny issue may be your laptop that is larger in size. My Mac fits easily in the compartment, but my Dell (it's a big Latitude) barely fits. But, it does fit and I have carried it in there on several occasions. The briefcase looks even better in person, so don't be afraid to buy it before handling it. I hope this helps as I found very little owner feedback on briefcases before I finally went with this one.
5 It is more beautiful in person.
Beautiful craftsmanship and design. Dramatic and elegant.
