A Briefcase Built to Last

Celebrating the first anniversary of its brick-and-mortar shop, Sterling & Burke is easily among local denizens’ first considerations for luxurious leather goods. “We are surrounded by a very eclectic and sophisticated group of city dwellers,” says Alexandra Jeffrey, manager of product development for the brand, “and realize the need for special, one-of-a-kind pieces.” In addition to the recently relaunched J.W. Hulme—a brand developed in part to create tents for soldiers in World War I—Sterling & Burke carries distinguished British label Swaine Adeney Brigg. Endowed with a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria—an official seal of approval that acts as a declaration of quality for the generations-old English company—Swaine Adeney Brigg’s 250 years of craftsmanship is hand-stitched into every article of its collection. “The ultimate luxury for frequent business travelers are the brand’s attaché cases,” says Jeffrey. Using English bridle leather, artisans in London employ a rigorous tanning process to produce the durable frame that ensures important documents, along with your iPad, arrive safe and with style.
