Description

This is a Coach Metropolitan Style Briefcase or Attache. The Coach Orderly Creed has the bag's style number 5180 stamped on it and states that it was made in the United States.

This is perfect for the lawyer, professor or accountant dad or graduate who needs to carry a digital device along with books or files and seek to enhance their seasoned background with vintage gear. Something a shiny new briefcase cannot do.

This is a very versatile vintage bag. Even though it's a product of the 80s or early 90s it's carrying capacity meets the needs of today's business. It can carry a 16 inch or less laptop in the main compartment and a 12 inch or less sized notebook in the gusseted pocket under the flap of a different Metropolitan Briefcase we had listed. [ I have been able to place my 15 inch Sony Vaio laptop in the main compartment and my HP 12 inch notebook in the front pocket under the flap in the Coach Metropolitan.] It also has a full length exterior slip pocket on the rear of the bag. The 43 inch leather carrying strap is adjustable.

I have Coach Catalogs from 1981 through 2003 and the earliest listing I can find for the Metropolitan is in the 1987 Coach Holiday Edition Catalog which has this listing:

"Number 5180. 'Metropolitan Brief Bag. $222 ( equivalent to $471 in 2015 dollars due to inflation)

This handsome legal size case is a favorite choice among men and woman who shop our coach stores. They find its size perfect for business needs and its features ideal for travel or commuting. It has a roomy interior, a full length outside back pocket for newspapers and often used files, a gusseted pocket under the flap for bulky items, and an inside drop pocket for small items. The shoulder strap detaches, in the solid brass buckles tuck away neatly inside. Dimensions 16 inches by 11 inches by two and a half inches

Black, British tan, burgundy, flannel grey, mocha, Navy, Tabac"

Dimensions:

Length: 16 inches
Height: 11 inches
Width: 2.5 inches

Strap Length: 43 inches

Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. There are no rips, tears or holes. It is structurally sound. The hardware works as intended. It has its original hang tag. However, there are some flaws as you would expect due to the age of the bag in the form of scratches and scuffs around the bag. Most of these are on the beading. However, there is a small white scuff line on the back of the bag. I have cleaned and reconditioned this bag with a product known as Leather CPR. Please review the photos carefully because they are part of this piece’s description and condition. Please feel free to ask questions or ask for photos.

If you prefer a different style vintage bag, I have many in stock and you can see it at my shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/ProVintageGear

This item was shipped off extremely quickly and arrived fairly quickly, even though it had to go through customs. The bag itself was described correctly in terms of condition, the only critique I might have is that perhaps a better resolution image might be more helpful, I wondered if the photo quality was just an etsy issue but I think it might be camera related. That being said, I struggled to find this particular bag anywhere else and I'm very happy to have it. Thanks very much!

IT'S THE REAL THING PLEDGE. If we sell it, it's the real thing. We guarantee it's the real thing or you get your money back including your delivery costs we this pledge:

GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC OR ALL MONEY BACK. We understand there are counterfeits and knockoffs of vintage products by well known manufacturers for sale all over the internet and in other market places. We use multiple procedures to assure the products we sell are authentic. One procedure we use is to research authenticity through vintage manufacturer catalogs and to report our research in the listing. Sometimes we include a snippet from the catalog to corroborate our research and educate you about the history of the bag. The purpose of reporting what the manufacturer says about its product in the catalog is to verify our research on the authenticity and to educate you about how a vintage product was portrayed in the past. It is not intended to hold our shop out as a representative of the manufacturer. However, if it turns out we are wrong or our research is not correct we guarantee that if we sell you a product represented to be manufactured by a reputable company like Coach, Cole Haan, Ghurka, Filson, Christian Dior, Hartmann, Gucci, or any other company and you have competent evidence that the product is not authentic we will refund your purchase price and delivery cost. In addition, we will pay for return postage.
