Past Vintage was created out of frustration and to some degree the evident decline of the British leather industry. Growing up, I saw the decline of British manufacturing firsthand as my father’s business was only a stone’s throw away from the factories of MG Rover, which is based in Longbridge, Birmingham. Today, operations have moved overseas which paints a very familiar picture throughout most industries.
All Briefcases are crafted with the highest quality Bridle leather. Bridle leather is well known for its strength, durability and stiffness. Past Vintage is entirely focused on quality rather than quantity. We focused on simplicity, which in essence is what adds lifespan to our products.
During the design phase, we incorporated certain features to provide flexibility and convenience directed to our customers. Extending our billet straps towards the rear of the briefcase enabled extra room and effectively offers a neat holder, ideal for a newspaper, jacket or even an umbrella.
