This is a beautiful burgundy leather Coach Attache made by Coach in 'The Factory' in the 80s. The Coach creed states it was made in New York City and has registration number 098-8616. Coach assigned style number 5060 to this bag.

This is a great bag for lawyers, accountants or other business professionals who need a lightweight bag to carry small to medium sized files or to carry their 16 inch or smaller laptop. This bag has a solid brass industrial zipper closure. Inside there are two pockets to hold your smart phone and any other incidentals.

This is what Coach had to say about this bag back in the summer of 1986:

No. 5060 Attache $150 ( $324 in 2016 dollars)

This soft unconstructed portfolio is a favorite with both men and women. With twice the capacity of our classic handle portfolio, This legal size carrying case has two inside pockets and a brass industrial zipper. Dimensions 17" x 11" x 3".

Dimensions:

Length: 17 inches
Height: 11 inches
Width: 3 inches

Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes. The hardware functions perfectly and it is structurally sound. However, there are a few small cracks in the handle and it does have scuffing and scratching like most bags over 30. I have conditioned this bag with a conditioner known as Leather CPR and it has turned out very nicely.

THE FACTORY

This bag was made in the NYC Coach Factory which means it is in the class of the most sought after vintage Coach bags. Coach no longer produces bags in the U.S.A. and the Factory is gone. The quality of the bags manufactured at the Coach NYC factory and the skills of the leather workers who produced them was memorialized in a book released in 1977 entitled "The Factory". Although commissioned by the owners of Coach, it is a testimonial to the skill and diversity of their work force Here are some excerpts from 'The Factory':

"The factory occupies two floors of a 12 story building in downtown New York City and employs about 125 members of the Pocketbook and Novelty Workers Union Local No. 1 AFL-CIO. It is the Coach Leatherware factory, and the people who work here make bags and belts out of leather and brass.

**********************************************************************************
Looking around the factory, out of town visitors are always struck by its rich ethnic mix. Like a microcosm of the City itself, every race, creed and national origin seems to be represented. In addition to 2nd generation New Yorkers, both black and white, there are Italians and those of Italian descent, Poles and those of Polish descent; likewise, Germans, Hungarians, Lithuanians, and Russians - as well as Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and a number of other Hispanics from Central and South America.

***********************************************************************************
Here in New York City we have recruited workers from what is undoubtedly the world's largest pool of skilled labor, and this has enabled us, over the years, to choose from the best in each category.

************************************************************************************
"The leather goods industry is a highly competitive one. If Coach bags and belts have enjoyed a certain success in this field, it is precisely because they are made in New York City by those people whose skill, energy and quick intelligence make it possible to turn out a quality product at a fair price. [ The Factory: Portrait of a Leathergoods Factory in Downtown New York City; Pictures by Jeremy Lezin- Words by Miles Cahn; July 1977]
