This Coach Stanton Briefcase is a very rare find. You just don't see many of them in the vintage bag marketplace. The styles you typically see are the Lexington, Beekman, Essex, Embassy, Metropolitan, and, to a lessor degree, the Prescott and Colebrook. We have all of those styles for sale in our shop. But, when you browse through the vintage Coach catalogs you realize they designed many more different style briefcases. Part of the fun in looking for vintage stock is to try to find bags that were prominently displayed in the catalog but are not easy to find in the vintage marketplace. This Coach Stanton Briefcase is such a bag.

This is the first Stanton Style Coach I have had the opportunity to acquire. This bag has Coach Pre Orderly Creed stamp No 021-4206 which means it was manufactured sometime between the mid 1980's and 1994 when the orderly creed was implemented.

The design of this bag is similar to the Coach Lexington. However, it has an additional pocket under the flap and a leather design running down the center of the flap over that distinguishes it. It also has the spring lock closure that was used by Coach instead of the turnlock closure. It is my belief based on which bags I have found with this spring lock closure that Coach introduced this in the early 90's and somehow discontinued using it by 1996. It has plenty of room and places to store just about anything you would want to carry during your business day. It has three gussets, an interior zippered pocket, and leather pen holders. The main gusset is wide and is expandable to about 5 inches.

Back in the day ( Fall 1992), this is what Coach had to say about this bag:

Stanton Briefcase.

No. 5272 $354. Full-length outside back pocket. Full-length front pocket under leather lined flap. Inside zipper pocket with pen holders. Contoured leather handle. Spring lock closure. 45" adjustable shoulder strap. 16 1/2" x 11 3/4" x 3 1/2". British Tan shown. Black, Burgundy, Mahogany.


This bag is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes and is structurally sound. However, it does have typical scuffs and scratches you find in a bag over 20 years old. In addition, this bag has a spring lock closure as opposed to the more familiar turn lock closure and this particular closure appears to have lost some of the tension necessary to keep the bag latched when it is under pressure when overfull. However, it does remain closed when not overfull and my spouse carried this bag for several weeks without any major difficulty caused by this closure.
