This is a vintage Kenneth Cole Reaction black leather dowel rod briefcase. I have a cognac version of this briefcase and have used it for years I have been using along with my Hartmann. This is truly a great briefcase. It is versatile as I can use it to carry my 15 inch VAIO laptop along with files and other necessary documents to meetings with clients and counsel. It has carried out each assignment in professional fashion.

Kenneth Cole is the manufacturer of this case. Here is what they had to say when listing this back in the day:

Keep your business essentials together luxuriously with the Kenneth Cole Reaction Mind Your Own Business Leather Dowel Rod Computer Case. This travel portfolio/computer case is made from soft grain cowhide leather and features large double gusset dowel rod construction for added durability. Its front compartment features a padded laptop computer pocket, and its rear compartment has an easy-access magnetic snap closure. It has a full length rear open pocket, and its front gusset pockets have on organizer, including a cell phone pocket, for keeping small business essentials like pens and pencils and business cards neat and handy. Luxurious yet affordable, the Kenneth Cole Reaction Mind Your Own Business Columbian Leather Dowel Rod Computer Case is the perfect case for the serious business person.

Product Description:

This bag is in excellent used condition. I believe this is one of those bags that may have been received as a gift by someone who liked their existing briefcase more and banished it to a trip to the closet. The leather is soft and supple. There are no rips, tears or holes. It is structurally sound. There is some minor scuffing but not much.
