A stunning example of a Gentlemen’s Briefcase
His company is Oakwill Goods.
They’re on the book too.
The first time I saw these beautiful leather goods, it struck me that this quality is unparalleled. The thought that has gone in to the angles, the cuts, the leather, the attention to detail is obvious to see and the result is beautiful.
Mal specialises in slim, minimalist wallets. Similar in principle to our leather cardholders.
He makes and sells a whole range of leather goods though, for men and women.
What closes the deal for me, is the personalised touch.
Although €270 for a briefcase might seem expensive for some, you must remember that quality isn’t expensive and these leather goods are quality. If you were in London, you’d pay £1,000+ for this level of workmanships.
These breathe quality and perfection. They’re handmade for people like you and me.
The days of the bulging wallet are gone, you don’t need that free coffee card with 3 stamps from that city you lived in two years ago, you’re not going back there! Let it go.
Minimalist wallets are the thing now. They make more sense, a couple of cards, some notes and that’s all you really need.
One of Oakwill’s promises is that they only use materials that are made to last so rest assured, these products are going to last. My favourite aspect of leather is the natural ageing, just look at how beautifully this ages:
Goods from Oakwill will age gracefully with you. They’ll travel well with you and they’re totally reliable.
Buying handmade goods is a choice, a lifestyle choice. You’ll pay more than you would on the highstreet but these are made by craftsmen, using their hands, carrying on a tradition. These traditions and personalities are so important in a world that’s quickly losing both of those things.
Focus on the small things, the things that make you smile. These products, when you pick them up, smell the leather, will make you smile.
Enjoy and support your crafts people!
