I would just like to say that I recently purchased the above item, the delivery was exceptionally quick and the product is excellent. People admire the workmanship and quality of the briefcase and it provides an image of professionalism and does not look like a run of the mill briefcase. It is a quality item and when people ask where it is from and I have no hesitation in passing on the supplier’s details (namely yourselves!) Thank you very much.

This will certainly be an improvement from my last case. I am sure this will last 20 years too!

I am so pleased with my purchase of the 'Paolo' briefcase. The quality is even better than I expected and it looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing how it ages over the years. I would highly recommend Maxwell Scott for high quality and stylish leather goods. Additionally, their customer service is excellent.

I just wanted to say thank you for the briefcase I ordered on Thursday and received Friday morning. It was a present for my (difficult to please) husband and he was actually very pleased with it! Your service was exceptional and the briefcase itself is beautifully made and presented.

The product is great; the detail and quality is first class. I marked the speed of delivery as average, however to be honest you kept me informed and gave me the choice to select another product on a potentially shorter lead time. I'm glad I stayed with my original selection as it is a fantastic briefcase and laptop carrier.

As a freelance designer and photographer, some of my clients don't always appreciate the designer garb of a Crumpler bag, jeans and t-shirt so I was looking for a more professional bag to take to meetings, galleries and the like. The Paolo fits the bill perfectly for me - plenty of room for my Mac laptop, iPad, notepad etc. It is beautifully made with a sturdy, strong handle and has quality stitching throughout, which is nice to see given that so many other so-called quality brands don't actually finish their products very well. I've had several bags over the last few years, some expensive and others not, and none of them have lasted very well because their stitching and the quality of the tanning is poor. Certainly not with the Paolo 3! The service from Maxwell Scott is BY FAR the best I've ever experienced with any online purchase I've made - despite me having to wait a month for my bag to be handmade, I was kept in the loop from day one. Cons: The shoulder strap is too 'feminine' and thin, and there's no way of adjusting its length. Adding feet on the bottom of the case would also be good to help protect the bottom of the bag over time. But those minor things aside I'm extremely happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this bag - and Maxwell Scott - to anyone.

I was looking for a luxury and high quality leather briefcase for a long time. After one of my friends recommendations I decided to search Maxwell Scott’s website. There is a great variety of briefcases and I was looking for a classic one. As an academic the briefcase is a must! I am pleased with my choice. I have received positive comments from colleagues and family members. I strongly recommend Maxwell Scott!

This briefcase appears to meet the requirements listed by the recipient, who will receive it next month as a birthday present. I am hoping to be still around in 10 - 20 years time, when I shall ask him if he is satisfied!

A safe and pleasant buying experience! This was a replacement for the Battista, which was beautiful but just a bit too small. The Paolo arrived next day after having received good advice on the phone and I love it. They are very helpful on the phone and I will certainly buy from Maxwell Scott again.

I have been searching for a quality leather bag for work for a number of years now. I knew exactly what I wanted and struggled to find anything that ticked all of the boxes. Then I discovered this company and this bag and I have to say it was well worth the wait. The quality and construction of the bag is fantastic. The leather is of great quality, the stitching is robust, the fixings for the strap well made and give me the confidence that they won't fall apart after a matter of months. The handle is ergonomically designed and feels strong and comfortable. It has plenty of room for my work folders, small umbrella, keys, phones etc. as well as my daily gym kit and a packed lunch. I was looking for a bag to last me a lifetime and I think with this I may have found it. I was looking at a bag in M&S for around half this price, having picked that up again today I can see that would have been a waste of money. This is a great purchase and one that I expect to get many years from. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

There are other briefcases that could probably compete in terms of practicality and durability but this item simply oozes class. If it is possible to have an everyday accessory that is a work of art, this is it. I cannot recommend it highly enough as an emblem of sophistication and understated good taste, not to mention that it is an extremely practical and workmanlike tool.

Absolutely beautiful briefcase. I looked at many in shops prior to purchasing the Paulo3 as I was nervous at purchasing one online without having seen or felt the quality of the leather. I needn't of worried! Staff on the phone were extremely helpful, friendly and well informed. They even managed to get it delivered the next day despite me ordering late on in the afternoon. The leather is gorgeous and I'm so glad I spent the extra as this case is in another league compared to the others I looked at. Boyfriend was thrilled - thank you Maxwell Scott! I would 100 million percent recommend!
5 This bag is a joy to own...
I've had my black Paolo3 for about a month now, and every time I carry it, or open it, it just makes me feel good! It's a quality object. Of course the stitching and the finish is first rate, of course the leather is excellent (from both outside and inside), but the thing that did surprise me were the tiny details of the design which are just spot on. For example, the shape and comfort of the handle being functional, solid but also feeling quite fine. Also the clasp which is strong and compact and closes with a satisfying click, but also has attractive grooving behind. The inside zipper pockets are subtle, and handy for occasional use, and there are just the right number of internal fittings to be helpful without becoming bulky. For those looking to buy - for what it's worth I'm glad I chose the Paolo3, not the 2. I was worried that it might be too large. It's not. Packing papers, laptop and other accoutrements, for me needs all three pockets. The embossed initials ended up being slightly larger than I was expecting (my three initials ended up perhaps 1cm high, 2.5cm across), so I was pleased to have gone for the "blind" option, so it's not too garish. But overall this is a high quality, functional but beautiful case, which my son already has his eye on for when I stop using it in 20 years time!
5 Beautiful briefcase to last a lifetime
I bought this briefcase for my husband a while ago and he absolutely loves it. I actually went to the offices of the company and they could not have been more helpful. I was shown a couple of briefcases in different colours and chose this one in tan, which is a stunning colour. It is a beautifully made item and my husband was thrilled. It is very spacious and holds everything he needs including his tablet and files. Hopefully it will last for years.
5 It has been excellent for three years; It will be excellent for a lifetime.
A graduation gift which has served me tremendously over the last three years. If there is a better briefcase out there, I have never seen it. Given how reliable and stylish this one is, I won't be looking for it.
5 Perfect Graduation Gift!
Order just arrived and it is absolutely beautiful Am so very pleased to be able to give such a special gift to our son as he receives his doctorate degree. The craftmanship and design are splendid. Thank you for excellent service and prompt delivery.
5 Excellent Service, Great Briefcase
Excellent communication with Charlotte throughout the entire process. Fast delivery with no problems. The briefcase is exactly as expected and looks great.
