Robb Recommends: A Timely New Trio From Ettinger

The British brand’s repertoire of accessories for men who are going places broadens yet again.

It’s always worth taking note when British leather accessories brand Ettinger introduces new products, and its latest trio is no exception. A more slimline and lightweight alternative to the Ettinger Westminster Briefcase, the Burlington Briefcase is a new addition to the brand’s Heritage Collection which remains big enough to hold a slim laptop or tablet despite the double gusset having been replaced with a single one.

With an exterior made of bridle leather and suede lining within, the briefcase – which comes in black, hazelnut, nut and the highly recognisable Ettinger London Tan and retails at £1,150 – features a large compartment alongside an A4-sized pocket slip for papers, as well as a brass lock to keep the case secure; on the back, there is another A4-sized pocket slip lined with gold Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard fabric.

The Ettinger Slim Card Case, meanwhile – a new addition to Ettinger’s goat leather Capra Collection – features six vertical card slots and two side slip pockets, all with Ettinger’s grey monogrammed jacquard lining. Available in three colours – marine blue, tan and black – it retails at £135.

Finally, another addition to the Capra Collection is the Capra Washbag – the first the brand has launched in a long while and a response to very vocal customer demand. Made using water-resistant goat leather on the outside and grey Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard lining on the inside, it has a handle for carrying ease and is available in marine blue, black and tan (£295).

“Having road tested samples of these new items on my extensive business travels last autumn, I know they all work beautifully and will be great additions to our portfolio,” says the brand’s CEO Robert Ettinger. “Hand-in-hand with my designers and craftspeople, we’re constantly reviewing the products we make to ensure that they fit in with the changing requirements of our increasingly cash-less, technology-focused, low maintenance and fast-moving lifestyles.”
