Inspired by famous architects, these handsome leather travel briefcases have a splash of color and eight internal compartments. And now they’re $100 off, at just $295.

Cole Haan
It’s an early Labor Day sale, with an extra 40% off sale styles when you use the code SAVE. Which puts a pair of Madison Wingtip Oxfords down to under $100 and some soft, nubuck slip-ons down $84.
