When it comes to our daily essentials, we love innovation in certain areas (our phone being our car key, coffee in a self-heating mug), but in the briefcase department it’s best not to stray too far from the norm. You’d do well to pick up one from Shinola, partially because the Detroit-based brand stays true to the classic construction while also offering its discerning eye, and partially because a few of their bags are up to 41% off at Nordstrom Rack.

Shinola, known for its assembled-in-America watches, has also been a purveyor of top-tier leather goods for years. During this sale, you have the option to grab a bag that offers up the full-blown leather experience or leather accents on a rugged canvas briefcase. 

In the former category, there’s the Signature Leather Slim Briefcase ($895 $550), a vegetable-tanned Horween leather carry that can hold the essentials, and the Double-Zip Leather Briefcase ($995 $600), a much larger, pebble-grained calfskin option if you need to carry more than just a laptop. If you want something a little more affordable, there’s the Brakeman Coated Canvas and Leather Briefcase ($495 $290), available in black or brown, which features a water-resistant coated canvas and leather accents, and will similarly never go out of style.
